Find Out Your Real Body Type
Knowing your body type can be helpful for choosing clothing that will accent your best features. It’s easy to determine your body type with nothing more than a tape measure. With that said, get out your tape measure and scroll down to find your real body shape.
Shoulders: Have someone help you measure from the tip of one shoulder all the way around you. The measuring tape should be high up around your shoulders so it almost slips off.
Bust: Pull the measuring tape taut across the fullest part of your bust and around your back. Don’t pull the tape so taut that your breasts start to squish!
Waist: Measure the smallest part of your natural waist, just above the belly button.
Hips: Start at one hip (below the hip bone) and wrap the tape measure around the largest part of your butt.

You are an inverted triangle if your shoulder or bust measurement is more than 5% bigger than your hip measurement (shoulders or bust ÷ hips ≥ 1.05).
For example, you are an inverted triangle if your shoulders are 36 inches and your hips are 34.25 inches or smaller.
You are a rectangle if your waist is less than 25% smaller than your shoulders or bust (waist ÷ shoulders or bust ≥ .75) and your shoulders, bust, and hip measurements are within 5% of each other.
Find this by looking at your shoulder, bust, and hip measurements. Call the largest of the three measurements t (usually it will be your shoulders), and the other two measurements y and z.
Multiply tby 0.95. If y and z are greater than the result of t x 0.95, then your shoulders, bust, and hips are within 5% of each other.
For example, you are a rectangle if your shoulders are 36 inches and your waist is 27 inches or more.
You are a triangle (also known as pear) if your hips are more than 5% bigger than your shoulders or bust (hips ÷ shoulders or bust ≥ 1.05).
