The best way to identify your body type is to look at yourself in a full-length mirror wearing your undergarments.

What not to do - here are some dressing no no's
#1 Wear baggy Swarovski 1050460 clothes to hide any weight issues - there seems to be a consensus that wearing bigger clothes will hide problem areas and weight issues but that could not be further from the truth.

She wears fitting clothes but manages to look great and actually make herself look smaller because she's wearing clothes that fit her body type.

#2 Buy something just because you like it - sure, you have to love the clothes you purchase for yourself but if the color is not right for you or if the fit just isn't right, you must learn to say no.

#3 Buy into all the trends - trends are great but just because it seems as though everyone on the planet is wearing this one great trend, doesn't mean that you should. Trends like leggings, crop tops, skinny jeans and knee high boots don't work for everyone just because everyone is wearing them.
