Every woman is unique when it comes to fashion – both concerning style as well as body shape. We can categorize woman into six body shapes: the V-line, H-line, A-line Straight, A-line Round, 8-line and O-line. Creating the perfect wardrobe and your own personal style, starts with knowing your body type - to make it easier to choose the right items.
When you know your body type, you can emphasize your best features, which steers away the attention from your least favorite areas. Knowing your body type helps you to invest in styles that suit you best, because they accentuate and flatter your figure.
Your body shape is determined by:
- Silhouette of the body. Is your silhouette straight or curvy? Which parts of the body do you want to accentuate, and which do you prefer to hide?
- Proportions. Are your proportions well balanced? How are your shoulders compared to your hips? What about the proportions between your upper body and lower body?
- Body height and bone structure. Are you tall, average or short? Do you have a fine or heavy bone structure?
- Personal style. Do you prefer a classic, sporty, casual, romantic, business or fashion-forward fashion style?
