Welcome to the squad! If your here to see how we size our garments we would like to first take a moment to let you know about body type.
Bodies come in all different shapes and sizes. That’s part of what makes each of us unique. It’s important to know that there isn’t an “average” or “typical” body, just like how no body is perfect or imperfect.
Some of us are curvier, some of us have narrower hips or broader shoulders — we’re all beautifully different.
However, we can still categorize our shape into a few broad categories to help get better fit and be aware of what suits our bodies better!
We have listed out the generic body types if you don’t see yours in the list reach out to us directly and we’d love to include you in our guide!
INVERTED TRIANGLE OR "APPLE"
If your shoulders and bust are larger than your relatively narrow hips, you have what’s known as an inverted triangle or “apple” shape.
Stylists may recommend tops that have some shaping around the waist and more open necklines, or clothing that shows off your legs.
TRIANGE OR "PEAR"
With this shape, your shoulders and bust are narrower than your hips.
You probably have slim arms and a fairly defined waist. Your waist most likely slopes out to your hips.
Stylists often recommend clothing that shows off the waistline.
The spoon body type is pretty similar to the triangle or “pear” shape.
Your hips are larger than your bust or the rest of your body and may have a “shelf”-like appearance.
You likely have a defined waist. You may also carry some weight in your upper arms and upper thighs.
You may be told to look for dresses that have classic “baby doll” cuts or other items with an empire waist.
RECTANGLE OR STRAIGHT
If your waist measurements are about the same as your hip or bust, and your shoulders and hips are about the same width, you have what’s called a “banana” or rectangle body type.
Stylists will probably point you toward off-the-shoulder tops, tube dresses, and belted waists
If you have broader hips than shoulders, a narrow bust, and a fuller waistline, you have what’s called a diamond body shape.
With this type, you may carry a little more weight in your upper legs. You may also have slender arms.
Flowy off-the-shoulder or boat-neck tops are usually recommended for this body type
If your hips and bust are nearly equal in size and you have a well-defined waist that’s narrower than both, you have an hourglass shape.
Your legs and upper body are probably considered proportionate.
Your shoulders may be slightly rounded, and you most likely have a rounded buttocks.
Form-fitting or tailored clothing have traditionally been designed with this body type in mind.
As a top hourglass, you have the general hourglass shape, but your bust measurements are slightly larger than your hips.
Boot cut or slightly flared pants probably fit you well, as do full or A-line skirts and tailored jackets
As a bottom hourglass, you have the general hourglass shape, but your hip measurements are slightly larger than your bust.
Stylists probably point you toward form-fitting knits and dresses
ROUND OR OVAL
If your bust is larger than the rest of your body, your hips are narrow, and your midsection is fuller, you have what’s usually called a round or oval body type.
Stylists usually point people with this body type toward tops that flare at the top or that have vertical details.
& compare which size bracket you come under, ensuring your garment is a the perfect fit.
1. Shoulder: Measure across your shoulder bone points from behind your neck.
2. Bust: Measure the circumference of your chest by placing one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust, wrap it around to get the measurement.
3. Waist: Measure the circumference of your natural waist, which is located in between your belly button and rib cage.
4. Hips: Measure the circumference of your hips starting at one hip and back to where you started, ensuring the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks.
