The Body Shape Calculator Will Make All Your Clothes Look Incredible

Until we discovered the body shape calculator, we didn’t have a fail-safe way of being able to find out what clothes suit our personal silhouettes. And thanks to our brilliant co-founder Hillary Kerr, we know that not every trend is for everyone, and that’s okay. Instead of panicking and buying in on every fashion trend, and dressing for your particular shape, rather than working against it, the body shape calculator will ensure you’re more comfortable and confident.

So how do we use it? Rather than comparing yourself to pictures of celebrities or fruit, which can leave you feeling unsure if you’ve arrived at the right conclusion, we’re using Oprah’s fashion expert Bradley Bayou’s foolproof technique. Bayous system uses maths—it is a little intensive, but well walk you through itto double-check that youve found your real figure.

We’re limiting this article to four common types for simplicity’s sake, but for a more in-depth look at every shape and size, check out Bayou’s The Science of Sexy, where he gives tips on how to dress 48 different figures. Also, keep in mind that no matter what your size is, you can have any of the below four outlines; it’s more about how your weight (whatever it may be) is distributed.

With that said, get out your tape measure and scroll down for the brilliant body shape calculator.
