Thanks for the review. Bradley Bayou's book "The Science of Sexy" is terrific despite its terrible title. I love this post!! I have read the pocket stylist, Science of Sexy and of course the styling book by Stacy and Clinton. I love these types of books and devour them by the dozens anytime I'm near a large bookstore! I am hourglass although that is deceiving since I wear a 30DD bra. I am more cup than band size. I have very small shoulders and straps fall down all the time.
I have worked as a dressmaker and have made my own clothes. Without getting into too much detail, there are different types of petites. Other than alterations for my large bust, I really just need to hem garmements.
I find Junior sizes fit better than even Misses Petite. I am very similar to you in build and find juniors are sometimes a better fit as well for my small but very curvy build. Bras at 30DD are tough to find and almost never stylish. I love the pocket stylist! I just did a post on it a few days ago. The advice is so helpful, but I couldn't really figure out my body type either. I am basically just a "rectangle" shape, since I have very little curves.
The chart that you posted is really helpful. Your tips are so helpful. It's hard to flatter a petite figure. Thanks for the Trinny and Susannah links! I'm going to go look through them now. I love this stuff! They're there, they're just smaller. Then it could work on everyone. I wonder if that exists somewhere…hmmm…. Anonymous — I think I know what my next book is going to be!
Thanks for the recommendation. If anyone wants a click-able link, here ya go: The Science of Sexy. Great books in there! I'm glad you shared the brooch placement bit! My bf had called me a pear-shape and I wouldn't believe it, but when I tried that chart from stylish planner above, lo and behold, I am a pear! It's so weird, cause when I look at styles for pear-shapes in magazines, they aren't the styles I like, so hard! I definitely need more styling tips, hehe. I love the guides Angie from You Look Fab puts out about body types.
If you are still not sure, post a pic in the forum and she'll give you a definite answer: I fall very perfectly as a triangle: Love the brooch placement comparison — I would have never thought of that.
Can't wait to try! I'm a little confused and not exactly sure what I am according to that chart! I seem to fall in the "curvy" column but my chest vs. Anyway, very interesting post and thanks for sharing the brooch placement tip! I'm quite petite and really enjoyed this post. In general, I don't believe trying to figure our your body type is a worthwhile pursuit because women's body's vary so so much. I think trial and error plus a good tailor are the best bets.
I've noticed many women who pull off trends that aren't suggested for their body type— personality has a lot to do with what will and won't look good on you, too. Also, not every woman who is short wants to look taller nor every woman who is larger wants to look skinnier.
I have never seen that brooch placement advice before, but what a good idea. It's too bad that people these days tend to dress for trends not their bodies. There are some really great books out there! I too have a petite body type, and have a hard time trying to figure out if I cam wear certain things. I'm not even sort of petite, but still this is the closest I'v gotten to understanding if I'm a pear or an hourglass.
Seems like a good book to pick up. I think I'm a pear shape, but leaning towards the hourglass… it's not super extreme, but you know. Thanks for posting this. I came across your post while I was researching "body types" for my body type calculator. I really like how you also have information backed by a variety of petite sources!
Give it a shot and let me know how it is. She gives advice for each body part. That made my day: Can anyone help me out. I think that that chart is kinda confusing: I always thought I was pear shaped. Another way is too look in a mirror and see if your shoulders are about the same width as your hips. Pear shaped ladies usually have narrow shoulders that are shorter in length than their hips. Because, in magazines, when they say curvy they mean heavier set.
I know exactly what you mean. Thus, thinner women are actually curvier than plus-size women. However you use the term in your real life, this chart means hourglass when it says curvy, so be happy that you have the figure every girl wants! This really made my day! I love your blog, by the way. Holy man, I love your blog! Thank you for this post, I was searching for pictures in Google, and found you by chance. It seems I have stumbled on greatness. Whoops, just now seeing this. Sorry for the late reply!
These kinds of things are only meant to be a loose guideline. Must be what you call your chicken legs. They look fabulous in the pictures. I have curvy, sturdy legs. I will look into those books: Nothing on the planet is made to fit me. I wear t-shirts and sweats most of the time and feel very frumpy.
This is so informative. It is very rare that I can find a perfect fit for me. I am pear shaped but not a simple one. I am 5 ft tall, have narrow shoulders, small bust, wide waist and wider hips. The problem is always my waistline. I guess I have to lose inches in the waist to be able to say I am a perfect pear shaped woman. And a small waist.
You can certainly be an hour glass. One way to tell is to look in the mirror and look at where your shoulders and largest part of your hips can be your thigh ends. What would that make me then??? I am 5feet 6 inches tall and weigh pounds recently I tried on a beautiful coat that was a 12 petite And it fit me like a glove. Should I have felt funny Buying a petite coat? You should not feel funny at all! No matter what your height, you might have different proportions at different parts of your body.
Some people are longer in their torsos than they are in their legs, and others are the opposite, so they have long legs but short torsos.
Women with short legs and long torsos may find that petite length pants fit them better, while regular size tops work well. Women with long legs and short torsos may find that regular pants are perfect, but petite tops are a good fit. Either way…nothing to worry about…you found a beautiful coat that fits you like a glove! Who cares what department it came from! My bum is not very curvy though, but my waist is kinda defined. This is also after 5 kids and 32 yrs of age.
What shape would u say I am? Could u elaborate on what categories I do fit into?
