It used to be that all women had to categorize themselves as an apple or pear figure – not anymore. A study of over 6000 women has reveled that there are 9 body shapes with the majority of women falling in to the 4 categories of rectangle, spoon, inverted triangle, and hourglass – nary a fruit present.
With the introduction of this information, women are now more empowered to understand their body types and how to dress accordingly. There are even some clothing designers who are beginning to catch on and manufacture clothing to flatter the many different shapes of women.
