I hasten to add, this is not my opinion, but the all too common judgement between designers and those involved within the fashion industry today.
As far as they are all concerned, if you are lucky enough to own the fabled strawberry figure, then -
You Are A Walking Clothes Hanger!
The strawberry body shape is best described as having broader shoulders and a narrower hip line.
Your strawberry silhouette is constantly observed on catwalks around the globe, extenuated by the models who own such a shape, to show off next seasons creations.
Why I here you ask?
The strawberry figure possesses a broader shoulder, key to the hanging of a garment. The smaller hips in the meantime swagger which creates movement. The perfect figure to show off and compliment any fashion designers piece.
Signs that you are strawberry body shaped -
1 – Your shoulders are wider than your hips.
2 – Large chest or breasts for your frame.
3 – You have a strong upper body.
4 – Often your type of shape comes with nice, lean legs
5 – You can have that top-heavy look.
Still not sure? Why not compare your shape to these famous silhouettes.
