Small boned frame versus Fat body
I have read your entry on adapting clothing after bone frame.
Does this always apply?
Well, as a young woman, I was very slender and had a small bone frame. I guess bone frame does not change with age, or change if you add a lot of weight.
So, despite weighing nearly double now as I did when I was 25, I still have the same bone frame beneath all those kilograms and fat.
Should I adapt my clothing after my small bone frame or after the corpulent body that surrounds this frame?
A good question! Yes your body frame is still the same even though you've gained weight.
And your Body Type is still the same - SHAPE NOT SIZE is what it's all about.
If you look at the images above you will see that each of the women shown have the same straight High Hip Shape even though their size varies considerably. So they will each need the same cut and shape of skirt to fit - but in a different size obviously.
Check up to find your own basic Body Type.
Your Hip Shape is the most important factor and take some time to understand why one shape will fit your body frame rather than another. Then go on to find which of the 5 Body Types you are closest to.
The style and cut that is recommended for each of the Body Types will relate whatever your size. But bear in mind that this information is generic and is only a starting point.
Millions of women wear the same dress size but each of our individual Body Shapes may be different. So addressing individual areas of your figure will allow you to Dress for your own Body Shape to create a look and fit that you're happy with.
So no you can't dress for a slender figure at the moment but by choosing the styles to flatter your generic Body Type and then addressing your own figure 'challenges' you will achieve the best fit possible.
and kind regards
