Body Shape Calculation // The Secret Formula

If you've recently joined The VIP Style HUB and don't know your body shape, or maybe want to re -assess and confirm what your body shape currently is this is the Blog for you.


If you're new, WELCOME - this is the place to start!


So how do I calculate a body shape.


Well - here is it is!



The Secret Formula


Waist ÷ Bust x 100% = Waist Percentage Hips ÷ Bust x 100% = Hip Percentage

Example:

Waist 32 inches ÷ Bust 40 inches x 100% = 80%

Therefore, your waist measurement is 80% of your bust measurement.

Hips 42 inches ÷ Bust 40 inches x 100% = 105%

Therefore, your hip measurement is 105% of your bust measurement.


Now based on the criteria below, look at either Chart 1 or Chart 2 to determine your shape.

If your waist is 7 to 9 inches smaller than your bust, look at Chart 1 and compare your waist percentage.


If your hips are 0 to 2 inches larger than your bust, look at Chart 2 and compare your hip percentage.

CHART 1: WAIST PERCENTAGE

Standard: Waist is 75% – 79% of bust Hourglass: Waist less than 75% of bust Rectangle: Waist 80% – 90% of bust Apple: greater than 90% of bust

CHART 2: HIP PERCENTAGE

Standard: Hips 100% – 106% of bust Triangle: Hips less than 100% of bust Pear Shape Body: Hips greater than 106% of bust


Hope this helps!


Now once you have it confirmed head to the Style Secret for YOUR body shape and get assessing your very own Style ABC.
