Body Type posts

I wanted to explain why I was doing a series on the plus size body shapes in all the styles.  Obviously a part of how you score yourself in the McJimsey styles is based on your silhouette or body shape. (I do not do Kibbe).  But the silhouette of your body only determines the silhouettes of your garments, or outer lines.  It's the rest of your features and personality that determine the rest, which is actually quite a bit.

So outer lines comes from your body shape and determine your garment design lines. So what I've done here is to show what is possible and what needs to be changed for these.  The inner lines come from your facial features and personality and they determine your accessories basically.










PAIR WITH INNER LINES OF THE 6 STYLES

inner lines do not depend on body shape, but come from facial features and personality

Banana is not a body shape included in the McJimsey style categories.  So what modifications would be necessary if the rest of your features indicate one of these dominant styles.  I am focusing on the plus sized banana.
