About This Quiz

Your body type may vary from your friends, the person sitting next to you or even your own sister! That's the beauty of humans. We all come in different shapes and sizes. Yet, there are four body types that are categorized as the main types: hourglass, pear, apple and straight. Which one are you? 

Whatever your body type, we all need clothes. As the saying goes, "no shirt, no shoes, no service!" Have you ever put on a pair of jeans and all of a sudden you feel like a supermodel? Did you do a fun dance to celebrate? It's amazing just how easy it is to play up our strengths with our fashion choices. The confidence our clothes can give us can change our day and our mindset.

So here's the question: can we guess your body type solely based on your preferences in clothing? Perhaps. We're willing to bet we can figure it out even after only five of the questions on this quiz. Don't be shy. You already know you look like a million bucks - we know you do. Now take this quiz, answer questions about your closet, and have some fun dancing through the questions along the way!
