Shopping for clothes isn’t always an enjoyable experience. What looks lovely on the hanger doesn’t always look great ‘on’. We don’t always know what suits us and relying on our friends opinions may not be the solution, as sometimes they tell us what they think we want to hear, rather then the truth. So wouldn’t it be great if we could shop for clothes feeling confident that what we pick for ourselves will look good on us, maybe even fabulous. Well now ladies, you can. Pepperberry, have just introduced a Body Shape Styling Service, where you can be your very own stylist. We have discovered three main body shapes, Straight, Balanced, and Shaped. Using our flow chart online, you can identify your own.
As a quick guide, Straight means your shoulders are equal to or wider than your hips and you have little or no waist definition. When you gain weight, it shows around your middle.
If you are Balanced, your hips are in line with your shoulders and your waist is well defined. When you gain weight, it will show evenly all over your body.
And lastly, if you are Shaped, your hips are wider than your shoulders and you have a well-defined waist, with fuller hips and thighs. When you gain weight, it shows on your hips, thighs and bottom.
Another great way to find your body shape is to dress in leggings and a close fitting t-shirt or vest and ask a friend to take a picture of you from the behind. If a friend is not available, try standing in front of a mirror and take a picture of yourself, you should be able to see the back of your figure in the reflection in the mirror. Don’t try to work out what shape you are from the front, as your bigger boobs will make it difficult to trace the line of your body.
After you have identified what body shape you are, there are three examples of each shape using our lovely members of staff, they are all wearing a different piece of Pepperberry clothing, which is perfect for their particular body shape. We have also listed some top tips for styling, whether you are Straight, Balanced or Shaped. And, if that’s not enough, you can then click at the bottom of the page and start shopping for Pepperberry clothes that are most suited to you.
So ladies, what are you waiting for… A future without fashion mishaps and style mistakes. Try our online guide and discover that stylist within.
