3 body types

Who else takes a whole day to think about what they’re wearing the next day? Choosing the best fabric for your body type can be a struggle, especially when you have certain body peculiarities like high level of perspiration or sensitivity. Read on for helpful tips on how to choose the best fabric for your body type.

Generally, there are three body types;

Ectomorph: Lean and long, with difficulty building muscle.

Mesomorph: Muscular and well-built, with a high metabolism and responsive muscle cells.

Endomorph: Big, high body fat, often pear-shaped, with a high tendency to store body fat.

However, people have different body quirks. For example, one would expect someone with high body fat to be susceptible to perspiration, and by so doing, be unable to wear tight and thick clothes. But not all endomorphs sweat a lot.

How then can you choose the best fabric for your body type?

1. Ectomorphs

Pretty much anything works for you, but you also need a personal study of your body to know what works best. Since anyone can have sensitive skin, experiment with several fabric types to choose what you’re most comfortable in. Cotton fabrics are always perfect for any weather, and they can be loose or fitting, depending on your choice.

2. Mesomorphs

Your high metabolism and responsive body cells mean your body burns carbs fast and your skin would need all the room to breathe. Preferably, go for cotton and linen fabrics. Your skin may or may not be sensitive to synthetic fiber, but either way, try as much as possible to mix up your wardrobe with functional wears that suit your style.

3. Endomorphs

High body fat means you’re vulnerable to heat. Always try to wear breathable fabrics like cotton. Go easy on tight fitting clothes so as not to cause skin irritation on your sensitive skin, but don’t be afraid to slay! Just be sure the weather is right for that beautiful synthetic fiber (poly cotton, rayon, taffeta, etc.) dress you’ve been eyeing for a while.
