Body shape is a skeletal structure, the quantity and distribution of muscles and fat on the body.
While going to a store, you might notice one dress is looking good on your friend but not on you?

Wear a well fitted hugging dress.
Use same colour for top and bottom.
Now, stand straight in front of a full length mirror. Make sure your back is straight and shoulders relaxed. Take a measuring tape and start noting down your measurements of the following body areas without changing the posture:
β€’ Shoulders β€’ Bust β€’ Waist β€’ Hips
After taking the basic measurements, we have to draw comparison between your upper body, mid line and lower body to know your body shape.



β€’ Pear
If your hips are wider than shoulders and waist line, you are a triangle or pear shaped body.
β€’ Inverted triangle
If your shoulders are wider than your waistline and hip line, you are an inverted triangle body shape.
β€’ Hourglass
If your hips and shoulders are of same width and waistline is relatively smaller, you are an hourgalss body shape.

β€’ Rectangle
Shoulders, waistline and hips are of almost same width, you are a rectangle body shape.
β€’ Apple
If you have comparatively large bust than hips, rounded tummy and slender legs, you are an apple or oval shaped body.

Every body is different and unique in itself. Every body is beautiful. No matter what your body shape is, love your body and be confident. Keep in mind your best body part and flaunt it. And don’t forget to enhance your other parts too by adding extra charm to them. Now, let’s talk about dressing of each body type.

1. Pear
If you are a pear shaped body, you need to add volume to your upper body. Draw attention towards your slim arms and shoulders.

2. Inverted triangle
