Do You Have an Inverted Triangle Body Shape?

The first step in styling your wardrobe is determining if you have an inverted triangle body shape. 

Inverted triangles, or “strawberries” as some people like to call this body shape, have shoulders and a bust that are wider than their hips. Usually, your shoulders are the widest part of your body if you have an inverted triangle body shape. 

Many plus-size people with inverted triangle body shapes want to wear clothing that gives them a balanced, hourglass shape. If this is your goal, you can easily achieve it with a few styling tips. 

Of course, everyone should wear what makes them feel comfortable. Everyone wants something different from their wardrobe. The most important part of fashion is feeling confident, beautiful, and comfortable.
