One of the attendees of my previous Masterclasses told me one of the reasons she couldn’t wear nice clothes is because she doesn’t understand or know her body. I told her she recognises the problem already and then we took up the challenge from there and together we were able to solve all her problems.
For any women to dress well, she has to understand the body she is in. She has to understand her silhouette, body type and proportions and then go ahead to start buying clothes that works.
Many women tend to go out and buy clothes and then buy more clothes and then more clothes only to turn around again and say, I don’t have what to wear. Not only are they wasting money, they are wasting time too. This is just a simple principle – be it time or money, if you do not know something, you spend more.
Without further ado, in just 3 simple steps, today, I bring you how to take your body measurements and how to discover the type of body you are in. In the video, I shared the four main body types – Apple, Pear, Ruler and Hourglass. I also used recognisable Celebrities to explain each body type / body shape.
The Four Main Types of Body Type
Hourglass: This woman has the size of her shoulder proportional to her hips and has very curvy and slim waistline. She is shaped like the figure 8. She stores her body fat on her butt, thigh and hips. An example of this kind of woman is Kim Kardashian.
Pear: This woman has a smaller upper body and a well defined or rounded hips. She is shaped like a regular triangle. Her waist is also curvy. She stores her body fat in her tummy, thighs and hips. An example would be Jennifer Lopez.
Apple: This woman is shaped like an inverted triangle. Her upper body is broader than her lower body. She has slim hips and stores her fat in her tummy, arms and back. An example of this woman would be Jennifer Hudson.
Ruler: The ruler has her upper body (shoulders) measures the same as her hips. She is naturally slim with undefined waistline (direct opposite to Hourglass) with small breasts and bum.
How to Measure & Determine Your Body Type
I truly hope you now know how to take measurements and determine your body type after watching the video. It is so easy to do. And once you know your body type, you can begin to dress your body according to your body. And that is how to dress yourself confidently.
I want to thank you for viewing. I do hope you found this helpful.
