Finding your body type

This is the best and more precise way to discover your body type rather than compare your body with celebrities pictures.

Contact us if you would like to have a personal session with our Personal Stylist.

Step 1

Get your tape measure and ask for someone to help you measure your shoulders (from the pit of your shoulder all way around you), bust (put the tape across the fullest part of your bust going around your back), waist (put the tape in the smallest area of your waist), hips (start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around the largest part of your butt)

Step 2

Now that you’ve measured all your key body parts, let’s do the math with the numbers you got!

But first, choose the body type  you think you have and find if its your true body shape by doing the math bellow.

Inverted triangle

You are inverted triangle if your shoulders or bust measurement it’s more than 5% bigger than your hips. (shoulders or bust ÷ hips ≥ 1.05)

Rectangle

You are a rectangle if your waist is less than 25% smaller than your shoulder or bust (waist ÷ shoulders or bust ≥ .75) and your shoulder, bust and hip measurements are within 5% of each other.

Triangle

You are a triangle if your hips are more than 5% bigger than your shoulders or bust (hips ÷ shoulders or bust ≥ 1.05).

Hourglass

You are an hourglass if your waist is at least 25% smaller than your shoulder or bust (waist ÷ shoulders and bust ≤ 0.75) AND your waist is at least 25% smaller than your hips (waist ÷ hips ≤ 0.75) and your shoulder and hip measurements are within 5% of each other.
