Your Horizontal Body

When we talk about measurements around our bust, waist, hips etc. this is called our Horizontal Body.

Every person's Horizontal Body measurements are different and there is no right or wrong size to be.

The only limitation of course is if you're trying to buy garments off the peg when we're stuck with the manufacturer's interpretation of how we're supposed to size up!

Do you sometimes feel you're the only woman who can't find clothes to fit?

It's frustrating to say the least, but there are very few women who can buy ready-to-wear clothes that fit perfectly.

Of course these are also the measurements you're concerned with if you feel the need to streamline your figure.

Sizing can be difficult

  • Different methods of sizing are rarely consistent
  • Garments manufactured/distributed around the world have no size regulations
  • Millions of women wear the same size but their measurements will be different
  • Don't get hung-up about the size label 
  • Aim for a good fit and be prepared to size up or down if necessary 

You can target any specific spot!

Measurements and sizes mean nothing...  it's how you FEEL that counts. One woman may enjoy having a large bust, another may want to minimize her assets. 

The way you use Color, Shape and Style can visually change your body shape. You can choose the parts of your body you want to accentuate and those you'd rather camouflage. No matter your size if you want to look taller, slimmer etc. you can always do a bit of visual cheating...
