Hi.

I'm Kristin! A short & curvy girl seeking clothes that fit. Originally from the South, I'm now taking on NYC! My blog is dedicated to providing style and fit guides for petite-pear shaped women.

Name: Lauren

Body Type: Inverted Triangle

What is an inverted triangle body type?  

  • Shoulders are noticeably wider than your hip-line
  • You may have strong-looking shoulders
  • Your body figure may project a sporty and athletic physique 
  • Your hips look straight given your shoulders being broad
  • You have little to no waist definition

*NOTE: This definition of the inverted triangle is from The Chic Fashionista.  If you want more information on this body type, check out The Chic Fashionista blog here.

 

Body Measurements:

Height = 5' 3''

Bust = 34''

Waist = 29''

Hips = 37''

Inseam = 32''

 

Her personal style: "East Coast meets West Coast - I have a New York vibe with all the black {I wear} but California casualness. Glam - I like sparkle and jewelry and usually wear jewelry to accent my outfit. Casual - I like wearing pants a lot and not really dresses or skirts."

Her style-icons: "Anna Kendrick, Reese Witherspoon & Gigi Hadid"

Her favorite places to shop: "Gilt.com & small local boutiques"

Her go-to outfit: "Black jeans/pants with a black tank & sweater/cardigan"

Her favorite part of her body: "Legs"

The part of her body that makes it the hardest to find clothes that fit: "I have a short torso and most blouses are flowy and made for tall people so {the} shirt ends up swallowing me. {It} makes me look like a trashbag so I usually have to tuck it into a skirt or tailor it. I usually resign myself to compromising and knowing that I will need to alter/style the shirt to make it work some way."
