You can as well get a note and pen to write down some points so as not to forget. 

Are you ready? Now let’s go. 

Different types of body shape

Diffrent types of body shape.

Triangular/pear shape

You can always tell if you have a triangular body shape when you have a smaller upper body and have a bigger lower body(from the hip) the hip will be wide and the shoulder will be small, the waist will be thinner and the hips and buttocks will be rounded. 

You can also call it a pear shape. 

Now let us move to clothes that fit this kind of shape. 

 Clothes that fit triangle/pear shape

  • sweetheart
  • Tulip skirt
  • high to trend
  • A-line skirt
  • boat neck tops
  • body con

Those are clothes that fit a triangle/pear shape. Check yourself if you fall into this category. 

Hourglass shape 

You can easily identify people that fall into this category because of their tiny or thin waists. 

Hour glass shape.

They tend to have a thin waist and even upper and lower body. The waist is smaller than the hips and they tend to have fuller cleavage. 

They are most times gifted with the proper height and weight and tend to have an evenly distributed weight gain and weight loss.

Clothes that fit an hourglass shape

Feel free to check yourself to know if you fall into this category. 

 Inverted triangle/cone shape

These are ladies with wide shoulders, narrow hips, and fuller busts without a full defined waist. 

Inverted triangle body shape.

This shape is one of the most coveted and wanted body shapes. 

They tend to gain weight in the midsection that is chest and stomach and they may have an average height, thinner hand, and leg. We can say that they have a chubby look.

Clothes for the inverted triangle shape

  • Halter neck
  • A-line
  • skinny jeans
  •  V-necks
  • Sheath dress
  •  Pleated skirt
  •  Cropped jeans
  • Scoop neck

You can check yourself and see if you fall into this category. 

Let us keep moving

Rectangle shape/H shape

These categories of women tend to have the same width of shoulders and hips, they do not have many curves, they tend to be straight, and have small busts and buttocks.

Clothes that fit a rectangle/H shape

  •  V- necks
  •  Maxi skirt
  •  Pencil skirt
  •  scoop neck
  •  Tight waist skirt
  •  Long gown

That its, by now you should have identified your body frame/ shape. 

You have gotten the basics, now it’s time to move on to the fundamentals.

Now you can now identify, dress and it’s time to enhance your body shape.

What determines your body shape?

Some factors can determine your body shape and the major factor is genetics

As we all know that genetics is a part of biology and its main focus is on the study of genes and hereditary. 

That shows that most of the traits and behavior of human being is passed from the parent to the offspring. 

We can inherit the type of body shape/frame from either our parents or grandparents. 

I know of a boy that takes his body shape from his grandfather and does not in any way look like his mother or father.

That shows how big a player’s genetics is to almost every part of a person.

Habit

Another factor is a habit. Come to think of it like this, a person growing up with a pear/triangle shape starts to indulge in activities like smoking, doing drugs, and living a restless life the probability of losing the pear shape is high.

 I would advise that you:

1. Stay clean and avoid injurious activities 

2. Get enough rest every day

3. Eat a fresh and balanced diet

4. Cut diet

5. Eat fruit regularly

Age

Age is a big factor. There is a probability of losing a type of body shape as soon as age starts to creep in. 

When age creeps in, the fat that comes along with age will start forming in the hips, belly, and thighs. 

Age

Do you know that habit or lifestyle can speed up or reduce the process of change in the body shape? Yes, it does. 

Generally, when someone is above 30 years there is a big chance of getting fat, and if this kind of person eats a lot of fatty food and does not cut diet the process will speed up and fat will store in the body quickly. 

I will advise that;

1. Eat a lot of fruit and vegetables 

2. Eat the right amount of healthy fats

3. Stay away from alcoholic drinks

4. Don’t do drugs

5. Drink a lot of water

6. Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day.

Possible body shape to change too 

Women's Fashion Category

You just have to take note of something, which is that as you start aging, your body will start changing due to the level of fats that saturate the body. 

Possible body shape to transform too.

The human body majorly consists of bones, fat, water, and muscles, and these factors play a lot in changes that occur to the body shape as one starts to grow older. 

The amount of water in the body may start to decrease and fat may start to increase as one starts to grow old. 

Bones may start losing nutrients and when all this happens, there are chances that

1.An hourglass shape can transform into a pear shape 

As time goes on, age creeps in and body fats begin to increase. 

Fats will start to store in the stomach, hips, and general body. If you don’t want to lose your hourglass figure as time goes on, we will go through exercises that must be added to the daily or weekly routine. 

2. Inverted triangle to a rectangle shape

An inverted triangle body shape can transform into a rectangle shape even without age coming to act. 

The level of fat you consume is a big factor. I have seen people that eat less and gain a lot of weight and people that eat largely and gain little to no weight. 

It depends on hormones and how they work in different persons.

You see that it can even work hand in hand with fat that comes with aging and fat can store in the lower part of the body and making the lower part rhyme with the upper section. 

Can my body shape be maintained and enhanced?

Yes, it can be maintained and even enhanced but first, take a little sip of your juice and let us move on to the part where you will learn how to enhance your stature to fit into any clothes by adding some exercise to your daily routine.

Exercise /Workout routine for a triangle/Pear shape

 Cardio

You have to do some cardio because you tend to gain more weight on the lower part, so we want to regulate the hips and thighs from getting larger. I will suggest that you do every part of the workout for at least 60 seconds(1minute) and 10 seconds of rest with repetition of at least 3 times. 

Cardio for all shapes.

Ladies with this shape carry most of their weight in the lower body that is the buttocks, hips, and thigh. They have a thinner upper body with a smaller bust and waist. 

Exercise for Triangle/pear shape

Cycling, incline walking, skipping, dips, and leg lift to reduce lower mass weight. 

Avoid stepping up unless you want to add mass to the lower body.

It is good to do lower intensity exercise to maintain a balance between the lower body and upper body. 

Do low-intensity cardio for 2to3 times a week and duration of 30 minutes per section. 

Also, engage in strength exercises to give massive look to the upper body and create balance on the body. 

Opt for exercises like ABS with weight, triceps, and biceps to enhance your body shape. 

Also, avoid squats and any exercise that builds the lower body. 

Apple shape

Ladies with this type of body gain weight in the middle that is chest and stomach, and they may have an average height, large bust, thinner arms, and legs. We can say that they have a chubby look.

Exercise for apple shape

Ladies with this type of stature should focus on cardio to burn excess fat in the midsection of the body. 

Exercises like

 ABS workout

All you have to do is sit on a mat, your hands held to the back of your head, and slowly push your back to the floor backward and bring it back to the front to touch your knees. You can get someone to sit on your legs to avoid leg movement while doing your abs workout. Do a repetition of 3sets of 12 reps. 

Running

You can do this in your compound all you have to do is run from one end to another. 

Step climbing

You can do this exercise at home. All you have to do is go up and down the stairs to get your lower body engaged. 

 Skipping

All you have to do is get a skipping rope and swing it under your feet while jumping to get the whole body engaged. 

Also, focus on strength exercise or strength training that will effectively target the lower section and with 4 to 6 repetitions. 

This exercise should be done 3 times a week. 

3 Hourglass shapes

Ladies with this type of shape are most times gifted with proper height and weight. They have almost the perfect figure with a smaller waist 10 inches smaller than the bust and hips. They tend to have an evenly distributed weight gain and weight loss. 

Exercise for an hourglass shape

If you’ve got an hourglass shape, you should focus on cardio and exercises that deal with strength (strength training) to maintain the body weight.

You will want to maintain a not too fat and not too thin, that is striking a balance and achieve a smart stature. 

I will suggest exercise like 

Jugging

You can do it in your compound or the street but just make sure it is not an intense one. Keep it slow and should last for at least 15 minutes. 

Skipping

Almost every lady enjoys skipping, it is fun to do. 

You can skip in your compound and let it last for at least 20 minutes. 

Slow cycling

Cycling is now fun and easy; you don’t need to buy a bicycle before you can do this exercise. 

You can get a cycling machine in your home or go to the gym center and what you have to do is keep it slow and not intense. Do it for 20 minutes. 

Shoulder press

The shoulder press is another exercise you should add to your workout routine. 

You can do it while sitting or standing all you need is a lightweight dumbbell, hold it in both hands and lift it over the head and gently bring your hands back sideways. 

Just make sure it is not an intense one. 

Push-ups

All you have to do is get both hands on the floor in a prostrating position with both legs stick together and just like that, gently go down and up.

I will suggest you do 3 sets of 10 reps. 

Biceps curl

This is almost like shoulder press, but the difference is that your hands will be held forward while touching your sides and palms facing forward.

And holding a lightweight dumbbell you will lift the dumbbell contracting your biceps and bring it back to the lower body and up again.

You don’t want to make it intense, instead of making it intense do 3 sets of 8 reps. and like that, you have identified, dress and enhance your body shape.

Rectangle/H shape

Ladies with this type of body shape have an equal measurement of the chest, waist, and hips. 

They tend to be straight from the upper body to the lower body with no defined curves. 

Most ladies with this type of shape tend not to gain weight easily. 

Exercise for rectangle shape 

Cardio should be reduced here, as we want to focus on strength training. 

Cardio should be done for 8 to 10 minutes and exercises that will tone the upper and lower upper should be focused on.

You should focus on an exercise like

Bench press

What you have to do is get a moderate-weight barbell, and lie down with your face facing the ceiling and your hand wide apart when holding your barbell.

push your hands up while holding your barbell and push it down to your chest level and push it up again. And make it a repetition of 6 to 8.

 Shoulder press

Just as mentioned earlier, you can do it while sitting or standing all you need is a moderate weight dumbbell.

Hold it in both hands and lift it over the head and gently bring your hands back sideways. 

Make it a repetition of 6 to 8 and 3 times a week. 

Squat

It is much more to do and we want to keep it intense to tone the lower body. 

What you have to do is drive your hips down and stand again. 

To make it an intense section, I will advise that you use a light or moderate weight barbell. 

What you have to do here is to stand up with the barbell on your upper back, your legs wide apart, toes facing front, and drive yourself up and down for at least 3 sets of 8 reps and 3 times per week. 

Just make sure you keep it intense and short. And just like that, you have learned how to identify, dress and enhance your body shape.

Cone shape/Inverted triangle

Ladies with this type of body shape tend to have a larger and wider upper body. 

They tend to have wide shoulders, narrow hips, and thin legs. 

The goal or aim here is to build the lower part of the body to march with the upper part of the body and as well try to reduce the upper body to match with the lower body. 

That is how to identify, dress and enhance your body shape.

Exercise for the cone/inverted shape

I would have advised you to avoid cardio, but it’s best to avoid cardio that will make the legs thin and focus on exercise that will build the lower body. 

Exercise like

Squat

Keep it intense to tone the lower body. 

What you have to do is drive your hips down and stand again. 

To make it an intense section, I will advise that you use a light or moderate weight barbell. 

What you have to do here is to stand up with the barbell on your upper back, your legs wide apart, toes facing front, and drive yourself up and down for at least 3 sets of 8 reps and 3 times per week. 

Just make sure you keep it intense and short. 

Leg press

All you have to do is to sit on the leg press machine, your back should be resting on the machine support then hold the hand support to keep your body balanced.

Then place your feet not too high as not to stress your gluts then push the footplate up and bring it back to the starting position.

You can also do it at home all you have to do is

  • Get sited on a chair and wrap a band (elastic band) around your foot while holding the end side of the band
  • Then press your feet against the band while holding the end of the band till your leg is straight high
  • Then return it to the starting position

You just have to keep to the routine, let it become a habit, and see how transformed your body shape will be.
