Guide To Better Styling : Perfect Measurements

Apples, pears, bananas or hourglass – female body shapes are often simplified into easy categories based on their dominating bodily curves.

But before we get into the details of those shapes, one thing for certain is body measurement matters. Knowing where your curves are and their sizes are beneficial for medical purposes, such as learning fat distribution and overall health risk. And as importantly, knowing your body measurement also means that you’re understanding your body better and how to work it to your advantage – in terms of dressing up and styling.

Imagine doing a quick body measurement and learn that you’ve been dressing wrongly the whole time. Or know just what and how you can accentuate your certain body aspect to full advantage. Isn’t it super wonderful knowing all the possibilities, just with the right body measurements?

Not to mention, with all the rage of online shopping, a girl simply cannot afford to pick the wrong size virtually! Think of all the money and time spent, if you end up with something too small or too big.

Without further ado, allow us to get you into the most proper body measurement below :

How to Start

  • The best time to measure yourself is first thing in the morning after you have empty your bladder.
  • Use a simple measuring tape and prepare a writing tool/ your phone to keep track of your sizes.
  • Stand straight but relax at the same time.
  • When measuring, the tape should fit snugly against the surface of your skin.
