Women adorn themselves with wonderful jewellery and the latest clothes but what they forget that is most beautiful about their bodies is their body type. Indian women have a knack of just pulling off every fashion item with panache but what most of them fail to understand is their body type. We all are in different shapes and sizes and the most important factor in dressing well lies in understanding the right type of clothing for your body.

Before going shopping or browsing those online shopping sites for hours let us understand where we really belong and what can best accentuate our body assets.
