If we are all honest with ourselves, we secretly have a celebrity we identify with. As part of our Guide to plus size body shapes, we have put together a short list of our favourite celebrities and their body shapes. We watch our curvy icons on the big screens and we like to think that they remind us a bit of ourselves, or perhaps they represent someone we would love to be. If you have ever watched Friends, you have probably said at one point ‘oh i did such a Monica today’ or if one of your friends does something funny you might murmur ‘that is so Ross’.
But no matter how much we might love a curvy icon, are we really identifying with the right celebrities? We may well marvel over how amazing Adele looks on the red carpet, we may envy Queen Latifah’s cool new dress, and we are dying to copy Christina Aguilera’s style, but would it actually suit us? Well, we’ve identified a few of our favorite celebrities’ body shapes so that next time you identify with a curvy star, it will be one that you REALLY can identify with.
Which Curvy Celebrity are you? Stars and their body shapes…
Beth Ditto is a classic apple with a round centre and no defined waist.
Velvet D’Amour’s bottom half is larger than her upper half which makes her a curvy pear shape.
Hour glass shape
Tara Lynn’s lower and upper half are equally proportioned, and she has a defined waist which makes her an hourglass.
Amber Riley’s upper body is larger than her lower body which makes her a cone shape.
Adele has a linear figure with no defined curves, her shoulders and hips are in proportion, this makes her a rectangle.
