Take the test and find out your Body Shape

It seems crazy, but a lot of women don’t know their Body Shape: they are hourglass and they think they are pear; they are apple and they think they are oval; and so on…

But first let me tell you this: when you talk about Body Shape, we talk about the shape, not the size. So weight variations shape us, but basically they don’t change proportions.

I know it seems complicated… But I swear it is not!

 

Today I show you a simple (infallible) test to finally find out your Body Shape:


Well? Good!

Some Body Shape have a bigger body part, where weight is usually accumulated: the Pear shape gains wight in the bottom part and lose weight in the upper part; the opposite foe the Apple shape.

There are other Body Shapes that are more homogeneous in the proportions and are distinguished by the waist: visibly marked in the Hourglass Shape; just mentioned in the Rectangle one; Absent in the Oval Shape.

Here is a precise description of the main Body Shapes:
