She is 5'4", she has a medium sized frame. The photo on the left shows a long, bulkier sweater that works, BUT the sweater over powers her body. The proportion is not correct.  The photo on the right shows a longer sweater, not as bulky and gives the appearance of her being taller.

Impacting How Clothing Fits: There are three main factors that determine your body type:

  1. Body Shape (which includes your height measurement) = A
  2. Body Proportions (torso/leg ration) = B
  3. Body Incidentals (neck length, plus a few other features) = C

The key to looking and feeling fantastic in your clothes isn’t just the size or shape of your body, but where the lines of the clothes you’re wearing hit your body. This is why your body’s proportion as it relates to your overall height, leg line, and torso is so important.

  A+B+C= Your Body Type= What kind of clothes to buy
