Shop for your body shape


Well, if you’re browsing through Styling Up’s online store, you actually don’t really need to know what’s your body shape, because it only shows you (after registration) what fits and flatters your body shape.

However, if you’re shopping in retail stores, you really should know what’s your body shape. And we mean your real body shape, and not the one you expect it to be. First of all, you should know that no women is fully satisfied with their body, there’s always something we’d like to change… but all you have to do is embrace it and work with what you have. Remember: fashion is architecture, and you just have to find the right clothes for your body type, no matter what size you wear.

Once you know your body type, at least it will save you the time of trying 10 pieces and none fitting properly at retail stores. So, here are the 6 body shapes we’re working with at Styling Up. Hope you can find this information useful. With time, we’ll post more detailed info and tips on finding perfect clothes for every body shape.

Your hips and bust are perfectly balanced, but your waist is not very defined. You tend to gain weight first in your torso and then your arms and upper thighs. One of your best assets are your lower legs, that are beautifully shaped.

Startup wants to provide free personal styling service

Styling Up is a portuguese startup that wants to help women find the garments that flatter their bodies, by providing a free personal styling service.

The most important aspect of how we dress is related to our body type, our style and our age. Most women often find hard to find clothes that are flattering to their bodies. Most of the times, women will have to go to several retail shops to find those pieces, and it can be a really frustrating experience. Especially if your body doesn’t fit the “standards”.

Styling Up wants to help women find the clothes that best fit their bodies, no matter what size they dress, by providing a 24/7 free personal stylist. To test its market value, the startup brought together two REAL WOMEN, that often struggle to find clothes for their bodies, one STYLIST to help find clothes for their bodies, and went shopping. The results were filmed with a smartphone and put together on video. Both women were really pleased with the overall result and loved the experience of shopping with a personal stylist. Watch the video.

Meanwhile, the startup prepares to launch its full online service to all women out there, and it will be available soon. For free.
