What is my body type?

Have you ever bought an outfit that looked amazing on the mannequin in the shop, only to get it home and find that it just doesn’t look the same on your real-life body?

Me too!

It is annoying, frustrating, and just plain rude.

But I have good news! I am here to unravel this mystery. And it all comes down to body shape!

The majority of women are simply not built like mannequins. (Shocking, I know!) Mannequins are manufactured to show off any item of clothing that adorns their perfectly plastic form. Shoulders, bust, and hips are all in line, with a small waist to bring visual balance to every ensemble.

So, what does that mean for a real-life woman of 2020? A real woman can and should embrace the beautiful body she has been blessed with!! How? By understanding what shape she is, and how to create balance with every outfit.

1.  Measure: Find a friend and measure away! You should include the following:

  • Shoulders
  • Bust
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Inseam

2.  Define your Shape: Use our guide below to select which letter you identify with.

3.  Use that knowledge (and our handy tips & tricks) to create balance as you select and assemble your wardrobe.

Sounds easy, right? It is!

There are plenty of things, especially now, that are down-right hard. Getting dressed does not need to be one of them! And having these handy guidelines makes shopping that much easier.

Poppy & Dot is here to answer your style questions. We want you to be happy with your purchase! We measure each and every garment to give you all the good details before you buy. If you know your measurements, picking a size is easy-peasy. (*tip: I keep my measurements saved in the notes on my phone!)

Let us help you get excited to get dressed every morning! Finding clothing that flatters your shape will give you an extra boost of confidence and you will be ready for whatever your day throws at you. It doesn’t matter if you are an executive or a stay at home mom, finding a style that works for you and feels fabulous is an absolute must!

Now go be confident, be happy, and (most importantly) be YOU!
