Clothes are more than just pieces of fabric. They are a way of expressing our personality and our feelings. Don't fall prey to dressing for an unflattering trend - dress for your shape...

From voluptuous vixen to lean machine, we're all different, and we all fit into different clothes.

What suits your best friend may not necessarily suit you. It's important to understand the different body shape categories, so you know which one you fall into and can start dressing in a way that flaunts your best assets.

The main body shapes are: apple, pear, strawberry and rhubarb. Whilst this may sound like a fruit bowl, these are the basic building blocks to dressing for your shape!
