What Style Best Flatters My Shape?

Every woman will, at some point, hate her body shape. Whether it's thanks to a sudden growth spurt in our teens, middle-age spread or the gravitational effects of old age, there's always something about ourselves we don't like. This is, contrary to what men think, entirely natural.

The real problem is that once we feel unattractive then everything else goes to pot as well. We stop taking the time to choose our fashion styles carefully, because we don't feel our body is worth the effort. We stop going out as much, because we don't feel attractive or sexy enough to keep up with our friends. And then all the combined depression drives us to indulge in more chocolate, alcohol - or any comfort food - which invariably makes the problem worse.

So how to get out of that vicious cycle? Well, the answer is simply to know what shape your body is and then adapt your clothes to suit. It's that old adage: if you look good, then you feel good; and it's so true.

Our bodies change shape naturally over the course of our lives, so it's equally natural (and logical) that you'll have to change your fashion styles a few times as you age. It's usually one of these changes that sets you down the path of doom - who doesn't get upset when their favourite top doesn't make them look good anymore? - but as long as you review your body shape and fashion as soon as you notice the change, then there's no reason to stop looking amazing.

We've brought together the most common body shapes and matched them with the ideal cuts and shapes to ensure that your wardrobe is a style haven. Simply find your shape and then read the blurb to discover the secret to clothing success…

Body shapes rarely depend on height, so whether you're petite or tall, the rules still apply. All you have to do is buy the right length.
