The Column Body Shape

 

Well, it’s not rocket science, the Column body shape is long and straight!

Coupled with long legs this body shape is very much straight […]

The Cornet Body Shape

 

Cornets are a typical tom boy shape with broad shoulders, small breasts, not much waist and slim hips and long slim legs.

The Pear Body Shape

 

Ah the classic Pear! This much maligned and most common of all body shapes is often not viewed very positively and carries a rather frumpy and drab image. This is totally unfair though and has lots of advantages. To start with because around 60% of UK women between 18 and 30 are Pears and this […]

The Skittle Body Shape

 

The Skittle is characterized by a long slim upper body which gets wider at the middle.
