As you know, there are many types of women bodies. Let’s discuss female body types in details and develop a certain kind of guide on body shapes.
The Classification of Female Body Types
- Straight body type. This is the most spread type of body, which is sometimes called a ruler or a rectangle. The special feature here is an absence of waist or its unclear line. As for the bust and hips, they often have equal proportions.
- Pear. The special treat here is hidden in hips, that are larger than bust. The bottom part is emphasized with a thin waist.
- Spoon. All female body types correspond to their names. So, this type is not an exception. Women with spoon figure are sometimes called “figure 8”, what means that they have hips that are slightly larger than the bust, and their waist is defined a little bit. “Spoons” would evidently gain excess weight in tummies. Besides, all of them reveals a tendency to love-handles. The benefit of such figure is in legs, which definitely look like a treasure.
- Hourglass. Women that have hourglass figures are lucky because this is the very type of the sake of which many girls strive for. The hips and bust are of equal size, and a waist is defined in a most beautiful way. All shapes are incredibly curved and the whole appearance is rather womanish.
- Top hourglass. This is the best body shape if to take into attention the opinion of modeling agencies. This kind of female body types is appreciated in an uttermost manner either by designers or by men. It looks like hourglass figure, but its peculiarity in a bigger bust.
- Inverted Triangle. The owners of this kind of figure have large bust, undefined waist and thin hips. Of to look at the appearance from a distance, you may see that the upper part of the body is slightly larger, what leads to a tiny disproportion between lower and upper parts.
- Oval. This figure offers their holders a waist that is prominent mostly in the entire picture of the body. The bust is large and the hips are narrow.
- Diamond. As in the previous case, the waist is the largest part of the body, but this time, hips are large too. As for the upper part, it looks little thinner than all other body items.
