Body proportions are actually more important than body shape, they create the balance that our brain so much enjoys.
I’ve made this short video to help you figure out your body proportions so that you can use this information to find how how to dress so that you look taller or shorter, slimmer or curvier – depending on the effect you want to achieve.
