Straight or rectangle: Your hips, waist and shoulders are almost the same proportion. You have a very elegant shape but just need a little extra defining.
You should wear: Booty-enhancing body shaper for women that add a little boost to your rear and clincher vests or shaping camis that will smooth your waist, back and giving your breasts a little push-up.
Hourglass: You have natural curves that are perfectly balanced with slim waistline.
You should wear: All-over shaping bodysuits that smooth your entire midriff and if you want a little lift in the rear, wear thong bodysuits.
Curvy booty: You look great in jeans because of your curvy hips and tiny waist but your chest is smaller, so you need to balance your figure.
