If you are someone who gets very conscious every time you spot something new while window shopping, trying to figure out if your body is meant to pull it off, you are not alone. Several women, all over the world, struggle to find out what their actual body shape is, and what would look best on them in terms of clothing, shoes and the ways in which to style them. If you are one of us as well, this guide is going to answer most of your queries in one go.

Types Of Body Shapes

1. The Straight Figure

If you believe you do not have a very well-defined waistline, rendering almost similar measurements to your body on the bust, the hips and the waist, you can say you have a straight figure. Also, very popular among supermodels, this is one body shape that suggests an array of clothes would look great on you.

Go for clothes that highlight your features, say tube tops and dresses, paired with a perfect belt to highlight the waist. Vibrant colours, unique cuts and layers are your things.

Don’ts

Never go for anything that lends a very shapeless look overall, like baggy t-shirts paired with baggy pants.

2. The Athletic Figure

An athletic body shape is basically a well-toned and fit body that people find most attractive and popular. You can say you have an athletic figure if you have a muscular body, with well-toned calves and thighs, and arms worth flaunting. Usually, women of an athletic build have broader shoulders, longer necks and flatter bellies compared to other women.
