Cracking the Code: Figure Type
This weekend, when I was on a "mini-vacation" with my family, in the car on the way to visit some friends who live in the country, all the pieces of the puzzle finally fell into place. I want to get it written and published before I forget.
The 6 figure types and how to ID yours:
- Type A (formerly triangle) = shoulders narrower than hips, waist defined or not.
- Type I (formerly rectangle or pencil) = shoulders and hips equally wide, waist slightly or not defined.
- Type O (formerly oval) = shoulders sloped and equal to hips, waist filled in.
- Type V (formerly wedge or inverted triangle) = shoulders wider than hips, waist defined or not.
- Type X (formerly hour-glass) = shoulders straight and equal to hips, waist defined.
- Type 8 (formerly figure-eight) = shoulders sloped and equal to, or slightly smaller than, hips; waist defined.
Does this clear up more questions than it raises? If not, leave your questions here.
