Today, I will be writing about the different body shapes and how to dress for your body shape.

Look at this chart below to guage your own body shape:





Triangle shape : 
If your hips are alot wider than your chest, then you are a triangle shape.


Inverted Triangle shape : 
If your hips are alot smaller than your chest, then you are a triangle shape.


Rectangle shape :
If your hips, waist and shoulders are pretty much the same width, then you are a rectangle shape. (You will also find that no matter how much dieting and exercises you do, your waist and hips still measure the same.)


Hourglass shape :
If your waist is about 9inch smaller than your bust and your hips and bust are roughly the same measurements, then you are an hourglass shape.



Diamond shape :
If your midsection is the widest part of your body and your shoulders are narrow with your hips smaller than your tummy, then you are a diamond shape.



Rounded shape :
If you have beautifully shaped legs but you are fuller in the tummy area and you have a set of larger than average bust, then you are a rounded shape which is also known as the apple shape.






SKATER DRESSES ARE PERFECT FOR THE HOURGLASS SHAPES or TRIANGLE SHAPES.

If you have a hourglass shape or a triangle shape, then flaunt your shape in a classic skater dress like the one seen here :


FLAUNT Funday Dress - Magenta




A full skirt skater dress shows off your waist very very well! And this dress from flaunt  is cut to perfection to accentuate every curve.







SKATER A-LINE DRESSES WITH A SIMPLE SCOOP NECK ARE PERFECT FOR THE RECTANGLE SHAPE or INVERTED TRIANGLES.

If you have a rectangle shape or an inverted triangle shape, then flaunt your shape in a skater a-line dress like the one seen here :




FLAUNT Origami Skater Dress - Navy




The rectangle body type has many options and can wear both sheath and A-line silhouettes well; the key is to create the illusion of a waistline. Shape can be created by wearing belts on your sheath and A-line dresses. If you have a rectangle of inverted triangle figure, it is also good to wear a scoop or v-neck to add dimension to your upper body.










SWING DRESSES WITH SOME BLINGS ARE PERFECT FOR EVERY BODY SHAPE.

Whatever your body shape type, its easy to look good just by flaunting your shape in a swing dress like the one seen here :



FLAUNT Treasure Trove Swing Dress - Purple




I would have to say that the most appealing thing about this piece of swing dress is how flattering it will look on every body type.

Swing dresses do not hide your curves, they celebrate them. If you don’t have any curves to begin with, swing dresses miraculously creates them. Since your hip measurement doesn’t factor in at all, swing dresses are perfect even if you’re a different size on top than you are on the bottom.

This piece is the most universally flattering and easy to wear clothing item I have ever encountered.








I hope my little article on body shapes helps you in search for clothing that suits that your body shape and that all you peeps had fun reading it.
