Body Types! All shapes and sizes are Unique and Beautiful

As women, we all struggle with body concepts and types. Don’t worry! I’m here to help and give a few tips. The pictures below gives a visual of a few body types/shapes. If you do not see your body type fret not, you can be a combination of more than one type.

                                                                          PLUS-SIZE BODY TYPES

Diamond: If you’re tall, average, or petite most diamond shapes are narrow at the shoulders and back. The waistline is usually the dominate area, wide hips and thick thighs with a small ample rear. Legs are proportioned and toned. Tips: Balance is the key to every shape! Since the waistline is popular, you can draw in attention with dramatic necklines (boat neck, V-neck, off the shoulder etc.) You can always cinch in the waist with a belt. Don’t forget to Show Off those Lovely Legs!!!

Triangle: It’s obvious that the bottom portion is the dominate in this case. Narrow shoulders, narrow waistline and wide hips with proportional legs. Tips: The #1 rule to de-emphasizing large hips. Wear darker colors on the bottom and light colors on the top.
