I like to read magazine as with others who read them discover new products, services and get ideas. I came across a little tidbit in the July 2007 issue of O Magazine about a website called My Shape (www.myshape.com). The concept of My Shape is finding clothes that fit your body type that flatters you. My Shape devised seven body types to determine what clothes flatters your figure best. You can enter your body measurements, the site calculates and determines what body type works for you. I copied the body types so you can get an idea:
Women with softened, straight figures and fairly straight shoulderlines. They have rounded bottoms and the difference between their waist and hip measurements is 7 inches or more.
Women with rounded profiles whose waist measurements are proportionally larger than their more balanced bust and hip measurements. They’re often short-waisted and long-legged.
My Shape has a personal shopper that chooses clothes for your body type so you can shop online (there are some very nice items), and the clothes are appropriate for all ages. You can either shop online or get an idea to make the clothes if you are very particular about what you wear. various body types. I suggest that you give My Shape a visit and see if it helps you flatter your shape.
