Worry not! You BFF Ordinaree is right here at your service yet again! Read below to know the body type and how to dress for it!

If your waist measurement is not that different to your bust or hip, you've got a rectangle or square body shape!

Have fun with your shape and add volume to your upper and lower body through wearing shoulder building details as puff sleeves or statement necklines.

If you are pear-shaped, you have hips that are wider than your upper body.

Try for full skirt dresses that will help balance out your proportions. Or try wearing a statement top or dress with an embellished neckline.

Typical characteristics of the apple body shape are a large bust, narrow hips and a full midsection.

A-line silhouettes, flowy tunics, relaxed boyfriend button-ups, asymmetric tops and wrap dresses are your BFF.

If your shoulder and hip measurements are nearly the same you have got the Athletic shape!

Show off your well-defined décolletage and upper half with halter necks, off-the-shoulder, strapless and racerback styles.

An hourglass-shaped body is someone who has evenly proportioned shoulders and waistline with a thin midsection.

Look at dresses that cling to your body and create a dynamic silhouette - the mermaid style dress or bodycons are a perfect choice for the hourglass figure!
