Know Your Shape



There are 8 body shapes but 88 and more variations.  When it comes to body shapes, I have 2 rules

  1. Highlight what you like
  2. Camouflage what you don’t like

With this philosophy in mind, let’s read more in details about each body shape

  1. Triangular Body Shape
  2. Inverted Triangular Body Shape
  3. Hourglass Body Shape
  4. Tubular Body Shape
  5. Rectangular Body Shape
  6. Diamond Body Shape
  7. Round Body Shape
  8. Ideal Body Shape

So all of us have read umpteen types and variations of body shapes. But for me, Judith Rasband’s concept of Body Shapes in her book “Fabulous Fit” resonates the most.

Her latest work on Fitting and Pattern Alteration: A Multi-Method Approach to Styling and Selection – Third edition, 2016 by Bloomsbury Publishing is my source base for the explanation of Body Shape in the related body shape blog post.
