Which body shape are you?

One of the fundamental rules of style according to most stylists, is dressing to suit your body shape. But do you know what body shape you really are?

Most of us have a distorted view of our true body shape. What we see (or think we see) in the mirror isn't necessarily true, sometimes it takes others to point out and assess our shape and it can be a surprise!

I love Joy Wilson's shape guide, with a simple quiz to find out what shape you are and then helpful suggestions and ideas on how to dress to suit that shape.

I've always thought I have broad shoulders and smaller hips making me a 'Strawberry' – but on closer inspection actually I may be more of a straight up and down or a 'Rectangle' according to Joy. At least I can read the tips for both and choose which to put into action!

So which body shape are you?

Inverted triangle. Not on that list but it's a variation of rectangle.

I think I am part strawberry/hourglass.
