After noticing the negative emotions attached to the body shape we all know like the apple, square, and rectangle shape, I decided to recreate my interpretation of a woman's body but in a more positive and digestible manner. In this post, I will highlight each of the 5 body shapes introduced in The Body Shape Bible and some of the styles that flatter each shape best.

1. Double Diamond

From top to bottom, you are a picture of harmony and balance. You have equal proportions between your upper and lower body with a well-defined waist. With your body shape, we recommend body-hugging styles that will show off those amazing curves.

2. Heart of Hearts

If you have a fuller chest, round shoulders that flow into your waist, and beautiful long legs then you are the Heart of Hearts! While the tendency is to cover up with loose clothing, we encourage you to embrace your beautiful shape by highlighting your best assets (bust and legs) by creating vertical lines.

3. Perfect Pear

If you are a Perfect Pear, your best assets are your well-defined waist and sculpted lower body. You also have an elegant neck and shoulder line. To show off your beautiful body, your focus needs to be on balancing your hip area with your upper body. Accentuating your slimmer waist with the right size, length, and style of apparel will give your look the definition it deserves.

4. Elegant Emerald

If your hips and bust are perfectly balanced and your legs are easily defined as one of your best assets, then you are an Elegant Emerald! To help show off that beautiful body we recommend clothing that will help that waistline shine.

5. Classic Diamond

The key to dressing your classic diamond body shape is to balance your beautiful athletic shoulders and full chest with your slimmer lower body. To help achieve this balance, we recommend clothing that will bring definition to the waist and accentuate the curves of your lower body.

Understanding your unique body shape lays the foundation for curating a wardrobe that flatters your silhouette, boosts confidence, and brings out the best in your style.
