Style for fatties? No, style for women according to their body shape
Probably every woman has criticism for their body shape and finds it hard to find an outfit that would be, firstly, comfortable and effective, secondly, elegant yet covering the parts that one wants to bring less attention to. So much depends on body shape, not on the size of the body. It could be that you and I, we, are wearing the same size clothing, yet, our body shape could be very different and the same clothing would just not fit. International literature presents these forms of body shapes – triangle, inverted triangle, rectangle, hourglass, diamond and rounded. Here I am sharing an illustration from Bellatory blog. Of course, it is only an approximate distribution, which might be useful while picking up a right silhouette of clothing and it cannot be an absolute standard while evaluating what fits and what – does not. First of all, a human is nature and nature have uncountable forms of modifications and possibilities, this is why this schema is just for overall orientation.
