Many of you have asked me a post about the different forms of the body and how to enhance them. However, before going to the heart of the matter, I thought: "can you recognize your body shape?" Don't worry if the answer is no, in today's article we'll see some simple steps to identify it :D

INTRODUCTION

There are 5 body shapes:
  • Rectangle
  • Triangle
  • Inverted triangle
  • Apple
  • Hourglass
Obviously, there are variations of them; precisely for this reason, it's difficult to recognize your own body shape. Each type, however, has some key points which help to identify it. In addition, I'll reveal you a trick I used for this purpose at the end of this post ;) So take note for the various steps: by connecting all of them, you'll be able to see your shape :D


1.PROPORTIONS

Body shapes can be categorized into two sections: proportionate and disproportionate ones; what does this mean? It means there is a difference in width between shoulders and hips (disproportionate) or not (proportionate). Once you'll have understood which group you belong to, you'll have already done a "skimming" :) Let's see in details:
  • Proportionate figures - rectangle, apple and hourglass
  • Disproportionate figures - triangle and inverted triangle: the shoulders of the first one are narrower than the hips, the second ones are the opposite.
Then, positioned in front of the mirror (preferably in underwear) you have to check the size of your shoulders and hips: which category do you belong to?

2.EXTRA POUNDS

After having established the first point, let's move on to the second one: where do you tend to accumulate extra pounds?

Proportionate figures:
  • The rectangle is the most fortunate shape among all of them, 'cause it tends not to put on weight easily. If it does, fat is distributed in a uniform way, so practically it can't be seen;
  • Apple accumulates fat in the thoracic and abdominal area, mainly on the belly and the back;
  • Hourglass gets fat everywhere, which isn't necessarily a disadvantage! If it puts on a few pounds it's also hard to notice it.
Disproportionate figures:
  • Triangle accumulates mostly below the hips, so unluckily, butt and thighs;
  • Inverted triangle, on the contrary, puts on weight from the waist up, that is, breast and arms.
Were you able to identify which is the area where you mostly accumulate?


3.ESTABLISH YOUR WAIST POINT
   
The waist is another useful key point in order to recognize your body shape. We can, therefore, make a further division:
  • Marked waistline: hourglass, triangle, inverted triangle;
  • Not marked waistline: rectangle and apple
Stand in front of the mirror again: is your waist point evident or not?


4.ANALYZE YOUR THIGHS

Since you're still looking at your reflection, let's take the opportunity to better observe your thighs. Here too, subsections:
  • Curvy thighs and curved sideways (we could say protruding): hourglass and triangle;
  • Thin and slender thighs, straight on the side: rectangle, apple and inverted triangle.
It's a pretty obvious feature, I'm sure you've immediately identified it :)

5.LITTLE BONUS! 

Summing up and connecting together all the characteristics we've seen, you should have been able to figure out which body shape you're in :) However, if you still have any doubts, I'll give you a little secret I found on the web, especially on  Moda Per Principianti. It's a beautiful post I suggest you to read!

In principle, I was very undecided about my shape, I didn't know if I was an hourglass or a triangle; so the secret is: look at the belly! In fact, this two shapes have a difference in it: hourglass, when puts on weight, has a very marked waistline, so it gets fat above and below the navel, creating two kinds of "rolls" (as happened to me); triangle, on the other hand, puts fat only from the navel downwards, leaving the waistline marked anyway, but the abdomen (at the stomach level), remains rather flat.
