Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!
Today we’re going to be talking body type. Ugh, I know. This can be a touchy and unpleasant subject. The rewards, though, are well worth it.
Knowing our body type can really help us determine what flatters our figure. Gone will be the days of being frustrated and discouraged by our clothes. Instead, we’ll be able to throw on anything in our closets and look fabulous.
Before we dive in, let’s remember that all body types are beautiful and should be celebrated. We might not all be where we want to be and that’s okay. We are what we are and we’re fabulous!
So, how exactly do we figure out what body type we are? When I found this infographic on whowhatwear.com, I just knew I had to share it with you lovelies! Finding out your body type is so easy!
As the infographic suggests, all we have to do is the following:
- Take measurements
- Measure the bust
- Measure the hips
- Measure the waist
- Determine your body type
- Rectangle: Your hips and bust are similar and less than 8″ bigger than your waist
- Hourglass: Your hips and bust are similar and more than 8″ bigger than your waist
- Apple: Your waist is larger than your bust and hips
- Pear: Your hips are larger than your bust and waist
- Inverted Triangle: Your bust is larger than your hips and waist
Now that we know our body type, we can do some research to determine what clothes will best flatter us. Not surprisingly, I take to Pinterest to do my searching. I’m a Rectangle, so I simply type in “rectangle body type” and up comes hundreds of articles and pictures to help you dress your best.
To get you started, I’ve found some tips for each body type below. The first 4 are from Fashionopolis and the last one is compliments of LuLaRoe Whitney Lloyd. Enjoy!
