 Women's Body Shapes And How To Change Your look

March 21, 20233 min read

Women come in different shapes and sizes, and there is no one "perfect" body shape. However, it's important to know your body shape and understand how to make changes if you want to achieve a certain look or feel more confident in your skin.

7 Women's Body Shapes - What Body Shape Are You?

There are generally five different body shapes for women: apple, pear, hourglass, rectangle, and inverted triangle. Let's break down each shape and discuss how to make changes if desired.

Apple Shape: If you have an apple-shaped body, you carry most of your weight around your midsection. This can make it difficult to find clothing that fits properly and can sometimes lead to health issues such as diabetes or heart disease.

To make changes: Focus on incorporating more cardiovascular exercise into your routine and weight training. Additionally, aim to eat a balanced diet that is low in processed foods and high in protein and fiber.

Pear Shape: Pear-shaped women carry most of their weight in their hips, thighs, and buttocks. This can make it difficult to find pants that fit well and can sometimes lead to self-consciousness.

To make changes: Focus on strength training exercises that target your lower body, such as squats and lunges. Additionally, aim to eat a healthy diet that is high in protein and low in processed foods.

Hourglass Shape: An hourglass-shaped body is characterized by a small waist and curvy hips and bust. This is often viewed as the "ideal" body shape.

To make changes: If you want to make changes to an hourglass-shaped body, focus on maintaining a healthy weight and incorporating strength training exercises to tone specific areas of your body.

Rectangle Shape: A rectangle-shaped body is characterized by a straight waist with little to no curves. This can make it difficult to create a defined waistline and can sometimes lead to feeling "boxy."

To make changes: Focus on incorporating strength training exercises that target your core and waistline, such as planks and oblique twists. Additionally, aim to eat a healthy diet that is low in processed foods and high in protein and fiber.

Inverted Triangle Shape: An inverted triangle-shaped body is characterized by broad shoulders and a narrow waist and hips. This can make it difficult to find clothing that fits properly and can sometimes lead to self-consciousness.

To make changes: Focus on incorporating strength training exercises that target your lower body, such as squats and lunges. Additionally, aim to eat a healthy diet that is high in protein and low in processed foods.

Muscle mass counts in a lot of these changes as well as body fat levels. This is why strength training is so important as well as improving fat levels. Here are some examples of muscle to body fat levels below!

Remember that there is no "perfect" body shape and that it's important to focus on being healthy and confident in your skin. By incorporating a high protein diet and exercise routine into your lifestyle, you can achieve the body shape that feels best for you.
