Shape Style Profile

You're an H if

  • shoulders, hips, and waist appear all about the same width. If you’re measuring, generally the waist is within 9 inches of the hips and shoulders.
  • little waist definition, creating a column-like effect
  • H’s can be either narrow (usually small bust) or more rectangular (fuller bust and a bit rounder tummy and commonly short waisted)

Best Looks

Create the illusion of volume proportionately in the upper and lower body, in effect drawing in a waist.

Stylist tip

You can create great shape through clever cuts, details around the shoulders and bust, and colour blocking. But keep it simple - nothing too tight, nothing too baggy. And try to avoid detail at the natural waist which will typically only draw attention to the fact that there isn’t much of one.
