What is Your Body Type?

Women are being sent two very different messages about our bodies these days. On the one hand, everyone from Tyra Banks to Glamour magazine says it’s oh-so-enlightened to “rock your curves” and accept the shape you have. But on the other hand, news headlines & several doctors trumpet the dangers of being overweight.
So how can you accept your body and still strive to be healthy?
New research, along with in-the-trenches experts, suggest that the answer may lie in reexamining what a “healthy” weight means for you. Focusing first on building good behaviors rather than achieving a specific number on a scale. Knowing your body type and what to wear to flatter your body can be a challenge, but in the end you will look your best no matter what's in style. Celebrity stylist Sam Saboura gives you some basic style tips:Triangle Body Type
Best features. Shapely legs, a trim waist and head-turning hips give your body feminine appeal.
Common pitfalls. “You have a slender upper body, so your instinct might be to show it off with slim-fitting shirts,” says Saboura. Resist the urge! Tiny tops throw off your body’s balance, making your bottom look bigger than it is.
Oval Body Type
Best features. Slender legs, & a trim booty give your figure a graceful allure.
Common pitfalls. “Circles often try to cover up their bodies,” says Saboura, “but that’s the opposite of what they should do.” Showing off your neckline, forearms and a little leg looks elegantly classy—not to mention younger, longer and leaner.
Hourglass Body Type
Best features. Big breasts, slim waist & curvy hips make your figure the crème de la crème of feminine beauty.
Common pitfalls. Your figure has natural allure, so you may be tempted to give too much away. Saboura says. "Show it off a bit, but don't give away all your curves."
Reverse Triangle Body Type
Best features. A tapered torso, trim waist & killer legs make you look confident & fit.
Common pitfalls. Your legs are typically well-sculpted, so your instinct may be to show them off with fitted leggings. That works if you’re wearing a long top (below your booty), but in general, you want to add volume to your lower half.
