What is your body shape?













The more clients I work with, the more I realise how very little women know what their body shape is and if they do know, what to do with their shape?  It is too confusing for women when looking at magazines and tv to find the answers.

Question … Am I an apple, brick, column or a strawberry?

I can tell you that the four body shapes are:

1. Hourglass 2. Pear 3. Straight 4. Inverted triangle.

We are all a variation of the these shapes; our bones on our body gives us the answer!

Julie’s story…

Age 47, height 5,6 colouring – warm, size 8 on top and 10 on bottom.

This is an example of a PEAR

The body is made up of two halves. A Pear has straight bones on the top and curved bones on the bottom. The body is usually smaller at the top and larger on the bottom. This is what you are born with and does not make a difference to what size you are.

To make the best of this body shape we need to balance out the body by making the top area larger. We do this by: layering, scarves, stripes, lighter colours, detailing and accessories. Your eye is then drawn to the top area of the body not making the problem area an issue. Simple!!

What body shape are you?
