What affects the body shape?
Indeed, the look of a person’s waist depends on the type of figure they have. Depending on if you have an ’hourglass’ or ’pear’ body type, you may be able to maintain your shape even when you gain weight. ’Ruler’ and ’apple’ body types who gain extra weight tend to get shapely in their upper body parts.
