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
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.
