INVERTED TRIANGLE


The inverted triangle body has wider shoulders than hips, with little to no waist definition. A lot of the time this body shape is considered athletic. When it comes to the best shapers, you want to add some curves to your lower half since you are slightly lacking in that department. We suggest wearing butt lifters to help boost your bottom half.

CHARACTERISTICS
Broad shoulders, chest and back
Narrow hips and bottom
Little to no waist definition
Athletic-looking silhouette

HOURGLASS

 

The hourglass body has a defined waist and shoulders and hips with proportional width. The key to this body shape is to follow your natural silhouette by accentuating your waist. You want to make sure to not unbalance your frame by becoming top- or bottom-heavy. When it comes to the best shapers, you will want to focus on all over smoothing. We suggest sculpting shapers that really show off your curves and accentuate your waistline.

CHARACTERISTICS
Defined waist
Balanced bust to hip ratio
• Slightly rounded shoulders
• Bottom and hips are rounded

OVAL

 

The oval body shape, also known as apple, has an undefined waist with their stomach being wider than their shoulders and hips. To help balance out the body, you want to add curves and fullness to your lower body since you can appear top-heavy due to the fuller chest and abdomen area. When it comes to the best shapers, you will want to focus on creating a more defined waist and adding curves. We suggest shapers with structure that will help lengthen your torso and balance your curves.
