Know your body shape:
Step 1 – Measure yourself –
Wear tight fitting clothes. You need following measurements:
Shoulder circumference – Place the measuring tape at the tip of one shoulder and wrap it around your shoulders.
Waist circumference- Waist usually lies just under your ribcage. Move your left arm up and bend to your right. The point where your side creases as you bend, is your waist. Keep a finger to mark your waist. Stand straight and wrap the measuring tape at that point to know your waist circumference.
Hips circumference- The point where your hips are the widest. Wrap the tape around your hips at the widest part to get the hip circumference.
Measuring yourself – You can measure yourself as well:
Step 2 – Find your body shape –
Write down your measurements in the following manner –
Situation 1: When one body measurement is more than the other two—
|1 body area wider than other 2||Your Body shape|
|Shoulders more than waist & hips||V Body shape|
|Waist more than shoulders & hips||O Body shape|
|Hips more than shoulders & waist||A Body shape|
Situation 2: If shoulders and hips are almost equal—
|Shoulders and hips are equal (in inches)||Your Body shape|
|Waist less than 75% of shoulders||X Body shape|
|Waist more than 75% of shoulders||H / I Body shape*|
Waist example- If your shoulder circumference is 40 inches, now 75% * 40 = 30 inches. So if your waist is equal to or less than 30 inches then you are an X shape; else H / I shaped.
|*Determine if you are H or I Body shape||Your Body shape|
|Bra size 28 or below 28 (irrespective of cup size)||I Body shape|
|Bra size 30 or more (irrespective of cup size)||H Body shape|
Bra size example – If your bra size is 28B, then you are an I shape. Say if it 34C then you would be H shape.
Situation 3: You have a High hip—
|If you have a high hip||Your Body shape|
|High hip – Navel area wider than hips circumference||8 Body shape|
The above maths could be overwhelming. Do not panic!!!
