Hello. This is a take for women only, and I know the men on GaG will feel the need, for God knows what reason, to say 'oh I prefer this body type' or 'that body type is better' in this take, so I will make it for women only.
This is to inspire women and make them feel comfortable in their own bodies. I will show examples of celebrities and showing why most body types are considered attractive, if not, all. I personally love to find the beauty in things, and everything has its strengths and weaknesses. I believe all body types can be very attractive with well fitted clothes and being healthy.
1. The Hourglass
A beautiful body shape, women of all weights can have this shape contrary to popular belief.
This shape's strengths are the waist and proportionate balance, you can throw off this balance however you want depending on your style or keep it and even enhance it.
2. The Pear
This shape's strength are the curvy hips and booty. Dressing better for upper body balance or even through fitness can create a more balanced look, but this body type on it's own is very current.
3. The Rectangle
A very gorgeous body type. It is often referred to as 'athletic' but I disagree. Many rectangle shaped women aren't necessarily skinny or fit. Some rectangle shaped women are a bit on the meaty side and have good proportions as well. This body type can look good in most clothes. The proof to that is models.
Lots of them have an average body type or rectangle body type but all clothes look beautiful on them.
Some examples of this body type are ariana grande ( both before weight loss and after ), gigi Hadid, kendall jenner .
The rectangle can either be small shoulders small hips , or broad shoulder broad hips but both body types have a waistline that is only slightly smaller than the upper and lower body , or even as big as them.
4. The Vase
Now this is a bit different. Kind of a mix between the rectangle and the hourglass. The vase body type has big breasts, thick thighs, average sized hips, medium sized butt and defined waist. It is a very beautiful, beautiful body type in my opinion. Looks almost like a vase and the bone structure outline in my opinion is very gorgeous. I wish I had this body type! A very famous example of this body type is the beautiful blake lively.
5. The Inverted Triangle
This is also in my opinion a very nice body. There aren't that many guides for how to dress for this body type. An inverted triangle has shoulders and chest bigger than lower body, can have narrow hips or even average sized hips.
Naomi campbell is an inverted triangle but with muscular fuller legs and some curve at her hips and a big butt for her weight . She was a curvy woman so a mix between rectangle, vase and inverted triangle. Still a very beautiful woman with great shoulders and legs (and the butt!).
It is also seen as an athletic body type. Which in my opinion, athletic makes it seem even more attractive.
Charlize Theron is a famous inverted triangle, and she is beautiful! Lots of athletes as well and especially swimmers have this body type. In my opinion strong shoulders make a woman look more bold and interesting.
6. The Apple
This body type is similar to the inverted triangle but has more abdominal fat and may have bigger boobs. A very famous apple shaped and very attractive woman is kate upton.
The skinny arms, legs and little booty along with the big boobs is a very attractive look that hasn't died down since the 2000's.
This body type can be very beautiful and proportionate if a person dresses well for it and tries to keep fit and healthy.
7. The 'Average' Body Type
This is more of a mix of all. There isn't exactly a certain shape for this. It could be the vase and the apple at the same time. Or the rectangle and the pear. Basically it is a body with normal proportions, normal shape and normal fat distribution and nothing stands out exactly as good or bad. This is a more common thing , which is why lots of women have an issue deciding what their body type is. Lots of people and celebrities have this body type.
I tried to include as many photos as possible. Tall, average, short, skinny, chunky, thick, overweight, muscular, etc. all these bodies have their appeal. Just look at Hollywood. Almost everybody has it's market and sex appeal. Even in real life. All it takes to be attractive is be healthy and proportionate which can be achieved through weight lifting or just losing weight/fitness and being healthy. Indicators of health like clean teeth, shiny and full hair, clear skin etc. Which are all doable.
Ladies, please never feel unattractive because of your body shape. You are more than enough. Those celebrities I included may look to you above average, but they just do all the stuff I mentioned above. I see lots of beautiful average women but they think too low of themselves, or don't take care of themselves and don't have the confidence to be considered attractive.
Remember to own your beauty and be confident and content with who you are and what you look like.
I might make a take like this for different facial features and their advantages and how they can still be attractive.
I hope this take helped somebody love themselves, I used to hate my body and myself but learned to love it and I hope you all never feel pain and only love for your self and your healthy body that carries you to places and keeps you alive and well.
