After having a few curvy conversations with my girls, I have decided to write a post on identifying your body shape and finding clothes that will compliment you. WE ARE ALL SHAPED DIFFERENTLY & BEAUTIFULLY. Some of us are top-heavy, bottom heavy, a little bit of both, or none of the above! We have all…well I know I have struggled at some point with clothes that did not compliment me well!
After a few years of trial and error, and evolving my style, I realized how important it is to feel good in the clothes that you wear while looking great at the same time! If your’e not giving yourself a double-take every time you pass a mirror…then maybe it’s time for a little WARDROBE CHANGE! lol
Shape Your Shop has a great body shape guide that will help you identify your body type.
Does this help? Maybe the diagram below will…
