This might be a shocker to some of you, but guys love it when a girl is comfortable with her shape. So instead of trying to squeeze your size 12 into size 8 skinny jeans or attempting to cover up a size 0 with baggy clothes, it’s time to wear the right clothes for your body type to give yourself a totally flattering shape.
Lucky for you, pinpointing your body type is a lot easier than figuring out your face shape. There are seven main body shapes, and you’ll most likely fall under one of the categories below:
Petite: You have a small bust and narrow hips (and are on the short side), like Nicole Richie, and Jessica Alba
Rectangular: You have a straight, athletic build with minimal waist definition, like Cameron Diaz and Hilary Duff
Hourglass: You have a curvy bust and hips, with a defined waist, like Kim Kardashian and
Pear shaped (triangle): You have thin shoulders, a small bust and curvy hips, like Jennifer Love Hewitt and Beyonce Knowles
Apple shaped (inverted triangle): You have a broader bust and shoulders, and narrower hips, like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Tyra Banks
Plus sized: You wear a size 14 or higher and have a large bust, curvy waist and wide hips, like Nicky Blonsky and Queen Latifah
Pretty simple, right? Once you find your shape, you’re ready to find the best looks for your body. We picked 12 sexy celebrities and asked stylist Cassey Sawhill (who works with celebs like Ashley Greene and Vanessa Hudgens) why their outfits work so well with their body types. She gave us some pretty helpful tips (and big style no-no’s) for dressing your unique body shape.
The best thing about these celebs? They love their bodies for what they are, and show us that any woman can use fashion to transform her body image and look way fab. OK, enough with the inspirational talk, on to the actual celebrity looks.
