How Body Types are determined...

Whatever dress size, whether it's a size 6 or size 26, you will still be the same Body Type because the shape of your body frame or bone structure does not change.

Would you put a square tablecloth on a round table? Of course you wouldn't because the shapes don't fit.

Your body frame is a firm structure too and just like the table, choosing clothes to fit, it is like choosing the correct shape for the tablecloth.

If you have a curvy body then you need curvy shapes to fit around your body frame. If you have a straight body then you need straight shapes to fit your body frame.
