My Body Shape Guide – Celebrity Body Shapes
Here at MyCelebrityFashion, we echo Auntie Gok’s mantra; that every body shape and size is beautiful. I was fortunate enough to be brought up by a lady who didn’t project any body hang ups and was comfortable with the shape and size that she’s been blessed with (thanks mom). However, most of us women (and men) learn to focus on the body part that we hate the most as we’re immersed in a world that is critical of everything but “model perfect” which is nigh-impossible to achieve.
So my mission is to change that little voice inside your head that says your bum is too big or your boobs are too small, to one that knows that your body is uniquely beautiful and should be celebrated by dressing it up in all of the gorgeous clothes that our beloved high street has to offer.
I know that the road to body confidence is bumpy so I’ve created a compact little celebrity body shape guide to arm you with the tools to feel comfortable and confident whatever the occasion.
Hourglass: Look sideways in the mirror, are your boobs and bum in proportion, i.e. are each of them ample enough? Now face forward, your hips are lovely and curvy and your waist nips in doesn’t it and it’s your smallest part? Then you have an hourglass figure so flaunt those curves with fitted fashion not shapeless, baggy clothing.
Celebrities with hourglass body shapes: Marilyn Monroe, Kelly Brook, Scarlett Johannson, Elisha Cuthbert, Dita von Teese and Nigella Lawson, Kim Kardashian.
Clothes To Suit An Hourglass Body Shape: Wrap dresses, cropped jackets, waist-cinching belts, pencil skirts, 50s circle skirts, wide leg trousers, bootcut jeans, fit and flare dresses, tops that taper in at the waist.
Clothes To Smother An Hourglass Body Shape: Super skinny thigh-clinging jeans, bulky boyfriend jeans, fishtail skirts, drop-waist coats, shapeless tees and tunic tops, anything too baggy.
Pear: Do a little twirl for me and take a peek. Do you have a gorgeous Beyonce style bum teamed with voluptuous hips and thighs that are broader than your upper half? Then you have a gorgeous pear body shape so balance out your slender upper body and you’ll create the hourglass illusion in an instant.
