Women Body Shapes & Types Defined by Measurements

Not happy with the vague and general infographics of women’s body type classifications, I went researching for something more specific and definitive… and guess what I found! An academic study diagram not only with specific measurement ranges, but also distribution among US women in 2003. That’d be a bit off now but gave me an idea of distribution, and I updated the graphic to include more common names.

There’s also a resource I have on Pinterest for how to dress in various body types, and the entire book where this came from online via Google Books. All of this will be very useful for my fashion design learning.

Maybe it’ll be useful for you, too. 🙂
