We developed our body shape guide and body shape calculator based on a study of over 6000 females.  The majority of women fall into one of the 8 female body types above.  Prior to the study, most females were told they were either an apple or a pear body type.  This study revealed that women have a much broader spectrum of body shapes.  Once you know what body type you are, you can begin to work with your body shape rather than against it when choosing clothing and swimsuits.

As females, our body types often change over time.  Whether the change is due to puberty, childbirth, weight loss or weight gain, we are often left at a loss as to how to compliment or even understand our new body shapes.  ShopYourShape can be very useful tool when it comes to understanding your new body type.  So as you change, we are here to help you with the transition.
