Figure 8, also sometimes called a Spoon, 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 mostly on the plus sized figure 8.

Figure 8 shape is carries weight at the high hip, just under the waist, and on the bottom.  I used to think it must be about the same as an hourglass, but it's not as round around the hips.

  1. Do you think that figure 8s can do best in one type, like, romantic? Because it`s rounded.
    And figure I or column, banana (brick)?

  2. Figure 8 is not as rounded as the Hourglass, which should be Romantic, generally.
