How to choose clothes on the figure
Stand in front of the mirror and determine the type of your figure. In total there are five types of shapes - a triangle, a circle, a figure eight, an inverted triangle and a rectangle. In principle, the names already indicate the main features, but you can dwell on this in more detail.

You will suit things with shoulder pads, V-shaped and square cuts. Dresses with a little high waist or wide straps. Skirts and trousers with a slightly low waist.
If your breasts, waist and hips are about the same volume, your shoulders are sloping and in general all the lines of your body are soft and smooth, your figure is “circle”. As a rule, this type of figure is observed in people who are prone to corpulence.The main task in choosing clothes is to place accents correctly, to divert attention from an unexpressed waist.
