How Can Eco-Friendly Clothing Be Flattering To You?

Incase you have ever wondered why a certain piece of clothing looks so good on one person, and completely unflattering on the other, you might find your answers today. In the given scenario, the main reason for this difference could be, the difference in their body types. Usually a choice in clothing that goes against one’s body type may end up contributing majorly to how attractive someone looks on a certain day. It becomes crucial to know one’s own body type, especially when one is dressing up for important days, like a job interview, a seminar, wedding etc.

How to know one’s own body type?

Measuring different parts of one’s body, and then analysing measurement should give someone an idea of how weight is divided in their body. The proportion in which one’s body weight is divided will ultimately help them decide, the body type that they are. Broadly, there are four major body types

  2. Pear
  3.  Hourglass
  4.  Rectangular

 

APPLE BODY TYPE

  • What one should aim for :
  • To balance out the proportions people with this body type should aim for breezy silhouettes, like a A-Line tops/dresses.
