My Body Type Clothing Adventures for Rectangle Body Type Women

Do you have my body type?  Are you a rectangle body type also known as ruler, banana, H frame, column, tube, lean, straight, or boyish figure?  Do you have trouble figuring out what to wear or how to wear clothes so you look more feminine and curvy?

I always struggled with finding clothes that didn't make my shape look boring and curveless but now that I'm older and wiser I see that a lot of that stemmed from my own body hang ups and perceived flaws that had more to do with my negative body image.

Since I've been working out right for my body type, my body image, self esteem, and body confidence has increased big time and I've realized that the rectangle body type has MANY advantages to the other body types including:

  • faster metabolism and easier fat burning without having to work so hard at it
  • easy to maintain lean long toned legs and arms without much effort or time
  • you can fit into practically any style of clothing including less expensive clothes at stores that cater to young women (you just have to style it right)
  • you can eat practically anything you want in moderation without gaining weight 
  • ability to look shapeless if you don't feel like dealing with unwanted attention

These are just a few of the many advantages of having a column body shape and there are many others that I will be sharing in my clothing adventure blog posts below.  I hope you enjoy this fun area of the site. 

I added this page for women who are tired of feeling self conscious about their boyish body type so that they can see that being a banana can be as sexy as you want it to be.  It's all about confidence that comes from getting your best body ever.

Rectangle Body Type Tip:  Got issues dressing your rectangle body type?  Feeling bummed out about your straight banana body?  Don't worry, all the other body types struggle to find what to wear and how to wear it too.  They also struggle with poor self esteem and negative body image (most women do). 

The best way to feel good about your body is to work out right for your body type so you get healthy, fit and happy.  Once you get your best female figure and the body confidence that comes with it, finding clothes that make you feel beautiful or sexy or hot or stylish is easy!

*Disclaimer:  I am in no way shape or form a chic fashionista stylist.  These blog posts are just a fun way to share my positive self esteem and positive body image tips.  My motto when it comes to personal style is wear what you love because "what other people think of you is none of your business!" besides some of the best men out there really like a confident banana and generally they prefer you wear a smile.
