I believe that each main body shape has a few different "grey areas" within it, which can complicate things. These things are generally your height, frame and proportions, but can also be down to things like your posture! (that's right ladies, stand up straight!) over the next few weeks i'm going to be doing s few videos and posts all about body shapes, and how to dress my body shape which is petite (5ft 1), curvy and pear-shaped. The reason I will be mainly talking about these types of body shapes is not due to my imaginary "dislike" of skinny women as some people like to believe, and more to do with the fact that I can't really talk about how to dress an apple shape because that's not what I have got, and I always like to come from a place of personal experience.
My natural body shape is pear shaped, meaning I carry most of my weight in my lower half, ie my hips, thighs and bum area. My tummy is reasonably flat (not as flat as I would like it to be, but hey ho) and my shoulders are pretty narrow (although not totally out of proportion to my hips) and my bust is not large. I also think that my height actually makes me seem smaller than I am if that makes sense, because i'm on the smaller side of curvy. My personal top style tip is to try and make my body seem more hourglass shaped rather than pear by attempting to balance out my top and bottom half, and hide the parts of my body that i'm not too keen on (yes arms, i'm talking to you!)
So what body shape are you? do you think it's not as easy to just decide what shape you are because of other factors? Do share!
