Flaunt your curvesRhubarb shape

The rhubarb shape is very simple to explain. Just like a rhubarb - straight up, straight down. This can also be referred to as a ruler figure, or a boyish figure. Very slim legs, long torso, and a relatively small chest.


Rhubarb shaped girls should go for short skirts or shorts, which show off slim legs. You can also go for skinny jeans, which will show off your nice, long legs. As with the figures that have a wide waist, you can also benefit from a belt round your waist to give the illusion of a waist. Because the rhubarb shape can get away with pretty much anything, you can wear jumpers with horizontal stripes. They will flatter you, and make you look a little wider without adding bulk.

Push-up bras can also come in very handy, as they will make your bust look bigger and even you out a bit more.


Rhubarb girls should avoid full skirts, especially the long kind, as they will drown you. Also, very baggy clothes will simply emphasise the lack of curves.
