Generally, most parts of our bodies are proportional. But sometimes, we have one part of our body that's way different from the rest. The four standard types:
Tube is where the body is mostly straight, Generally thin, this body type is slim hipped with small framed shoulders.
This doesn't mean girls like this don't have breasts or a bum, but they usually don't extend width wise in those areas.
This is a body type which is, well, like an hourglass.
Slim waisted, but usually with defined hips and and a chest that is bigger than the waist.
This is sometimes referred to as full busted. This body type has a small lower body and usually a full bust or large chest.
Pear shaped girls have wide hips, and usually a small bust.
These are really easy to remember. Basically they look exactly like what they're called. Things have names for a reason.
Later we'll discuss why these shapes are important.
