Ever wondered why certain clothes don't look as good on you as on another girl with similar stats?

How to find your type:

Aly Art has many videos with very good tips on how each type can dress and style themself to look their best.

Happy to see a thread on this since I've recently gotten into this topic. Thanks anon!

I find it pretty difficult to find information/celebrity comparisons on these but here is another graphic I found. Not sure how accurate it is though.

Why do we care what a man thinks of catagories our bodies and style? There might be some truth to what he’s saying but I don’t think its possible to catagorize the billions of women on the planet into just a few caragories of beauty.

No. 92687

It has less to do with categorizing beauty (iirc it's explicitly said that it's not a scale of attractiveness) and more with trying to help women how to dress or do make up for their bodies.

Personally, it has helped me a lot to dress more flattering for my body shape.
Of course most women won't fit 100% into one specific category. You can be a combination of two similar types or posses attributes from multiple different types and still benefit from the styling tips.

I see it differently: so many young girls and women follow every single modern trend, no matter whether they like it or whether it suits them.
According to this theory you don't need to do that, instead find the things that really suit you personally.

I'm a Dramatic Classic, I will never look cute, I could never wear j-fashion. When I was younger I always thought that I need to were the same things as my friends - even though I looked awful in them.
If something really fits you, then you'll also feel more comfortable and confident.
It's not likes he's telling everybody that they have to wear certain things, rather what cuts or patterns to avoid because they're unflattering for your type.

No. 92691

But what about wearing things because you like them, even if they “don’t suit you”? Fashion is so subjective, life is too short to not wear what you enjoy, even if some random man tells you it’s scientifically unflattering on you for x, y and z reason.

Its cool that it has helped some anons though

No. 92695

I don't have a sense of style, there never was a type of fashion that I really liked and I never had an idea of what to wear. I just want to look good and that's also why I copied others in the past.

No. 92697

You are totally right! Wear what you want to wear because life is too short. If this is your motto - go for it!

But this thread is for women and girls who want to understand forms and lines. People who didn't find their styles yet and are insecure about what is flattering and what is not.

>I was a so-called "fashion victim" and I bought every month new clothes in order to be ~trendy like the stacies in my school and later uni. I never stood out, I didn't feel good in my own skin. At one point I decided to clean up my wardrobe and believe it or not - I threw away clothes in the value of 2000€ which I hoarded in the last 3 years (it was mainly from H&M, Primark, Forever21). I decided to invest in high quality clothes and look for my own indivual style and so I found Kibbe. I get complimented how it fits my personality. I don't look like the typical girls around me without trying too hard if you know what I mean.

I find all this super interesting but I'm finding it hard to pin down which type I personally am. I've never really thought about what shape my shoulders are or how they're sloped or whatever and tbh my face is just a shapeless blob of flesh.

Diane Kruger is my absolute favourite DC because she styles herself classy, edgy and sexy.

I would recommend a mix out of different materials.
For example: classy cotton pants and a see-through lace blouse with a sexy/edgy bustier underneath.
Velvet, leather and lace are really interesting materials for you which can spice up any outfit.

You can also bring edgyness to your outfit through breaking some rules for example holes in your jeans as long as you stay with an overall classic vibe.

No. 92748

Ok your main essence is E which soft/romantic with an an undercurrent of C which is balanced/classic. D adds more softness to your type.

Balanced, with a Yin influence - Soft Classic

You are not Theatrical Romatic because you have no A answers which indicates a slight yang influence. You are soft and balanced overall.

No. 92749

My guess is Soft Classic as well, since most of your answers are Es (very high yin) but there is still some yang influence, so you're probably not a full romantic and a SC instead.

Anon FN is like a jackpot since a lot of models ate this type too. You can wear anything that you see on runways and often in shops you find everything for FN. There are softer and harsh faces for this type, so your face is ok and should fit into this range.

May I ask you which style do you prefer?

No. 92762

Kek I mean nearly all models ARE FN and not ATE

No. 92763

You could be either Romantic or Soft Classic.
>But to qualify for SC, your bone structure should be primarily balanced between the extremes of Yin and Yang while your body type and facial features should be more Yin-influenced.
If this is not the case, you are Romantic indeed.

No. 92764

I guess I'm a soft natural? Most of my answers are C, D or B in order of frequency and only 1 A and 1 E answer. Most of the examples given in the video of soft naturals are extremely busty women though, the only SN example close to me is Margot Robbie. My face is fairly yin, bonestructure yan, but yeah very small bust, store all my fat below my belly button (ass, thighs, lower belly), I still end up with an hourglass silhouette because of wide hips+broad shoulders and small waist.

No. 92765

I’m confused cause I was dominant D/E and there wasn’t really a type listed that was for that result. Is this some subtype or one of the others?

No. 92766

E is clearly soft/romantic. D is elusive but overall it adds softness to your appereance. Sometimes you will find yourself between two types if you have many D answers, for example too romantic to be SN but too natural to be TR. In your case I would definetely put you into the Romantic category.

No. 92767

I feel like I'm a mix between Romantic and Classic but there's no category for that.

>1 A

>3 B
>7 C
>2 D
>3 E

On a lot of things I was between two letters, so I think I could have a lot more E's/more romantic, although my body shape does not fit that.


No. 92768

also I'm 5ft10 and I read soft classics are usually about 5ft5?

No. 92770

For me you sound like a Soft Dramatic. Your dramatic essence comes from your height while your softness shows in your body type and face.

Normally you have 1 -3 letters from A to E. But you have 5 letters, which makes it harder. Some you can ignore but it can also be possible that you are a mixture of more than one type.

No. 92772

How tall are you anon? Can you give me your answers?

Shakira has a fleshy/curvy body type and mainly soft facial features. But her bone structure isn't as delicate and round as a Romantic. It is more angular. She reminds me of Scarlett Johannson, so I would guess Shakira is also a Soft Natural

No. 92773

Ofcourse, thanks for your help anon.
I am 177cm, I don't think I have delicate bone structure either. I'm defenitely a pear though because my hips are very wide and shoulders are narrow. My bust is kind of big too but I don't seem to have a narrow waist (but it might look that way in contrast to my hips and bust)

No. 92787

Classic is described as moderately tall - 5'5 to 5'7. But you have to keep in mind that nowadays girls are always getting taller and taller, 5'10 is no longer as super tall and abnormal as it used to be, meaning even if that description doesn't fit 100%, you could still be that type.
I immediately knew I was DC, because everything fit perfectly, only difference is that I'm actually 5'10.
(Maybe the same thing can be said about things like breast size, since now even young teens seem to always get bustier, because of hormones in meat etc…?)

No. 92788

That's true. Some deviations ate possible. For example Kibbe said Audrey Hepburn is a Flamboyant Gamine although she is 5'7 tall. Some argue that she a Dramatic Classic though. But her whole appearance and essence is gaminish. She would look dull with a classic styling.

No. 92797

damn that makes it all more complicated. i'm a different anon and i still think i'm probably a SD but the questions that threw me off the most are vertical line and hands/feet.

for vertical line, i'm 5'11 but people are usually shocked by this and i've been told a few times that they thought i would be short. my torso is long but i look more like a scaled up medium height girl rather than a lanky model. BUT maybe this effect is because my shoulders are really narrow and my "flesh" is soft rather than long and sinewy even when i get buff. it's hard to say how tall/long your bone structure looks aside from any other factors.

and for hands and feet mine are long and narrow but also small for my height in terms of actual size. but they're still much bigger than a petite girl's.

No. 92807

ok thanks, I was thinking not SD since the description I saw said boldly yang with slight yin undercurrent. I have a very feminine and round face, very similar to the romantic on thread pic, but my features themselves are all very proportionate. ugh more confusion haha

No. 92808

You could also be a Soft Natural since we don't have a picture of your body we can only guess. I can't see from the answers if your bones are angular or your face is mainly soft. The more information, the better. You can compare both types SN and SD and see for yourself which fits you better.
The reason I don't think you are a SC is because you are not completely balanced with a soft undercurrent.

Here is the description for SN:
are “Soft Yang with a Yin undercurrent”. They are also halfway between “contrast” and “blended”. Like SDs they are basically angular in bone structure, although this is softened by a fleshy body type and full facial features.

No. 92814

Excuse my incurable autism but i think i figured out why the test/category system as it is doesn't work for males.
because the system is for women, it assumes a default with high yin, and yang features have more "weight."
What I mean by this is, it's expected that even high yang types like D or FN will have one or two yin features, because they're women. It takes more than a couple yin features to bump from D to SD.
On the other side of the spectrum, in order to be R you need to be all yin, even having one or two yang features takes you out of the pure R category and into another category like TR. In other words, you need all yin to qualify for R, but you don't need 100% yang to qualify for D or FN. That means that if men were to take this, a huge spectrum of men would wind up as D or FN, regardless of if they're 100% yang or if they have one or two yin features.
A system for men would need to be the opposite, assume a decent amount of yang and give yin more weight, because even a very feminine man likely has a couple yang features, but in order for a man to look 100% masculine he must be all yang.

This also explains why in the gencrit thread an anon wondered why a troon looked feminine as a guy but manly as a girl. If a man has one or two apparent yin features, like big round eyes or a slender build, he looks like a feminine man because feminine features have more weight for men. But if you put that same man in a dress and try to see him as a woman, you see a "woman" with mostly masculine features and only a few feminine ones.

No. 92815

I agree 100% with you. Aly Art explains this in this video where different types are styled as a Romantic which is extremly high yin. Beautiful models become more harsh-looking, their yang features become more apparent. So if a man is styled as a woman, his manliness will become more apparent

I think Classics can get away with more styles than any other type because they are so balanced.

You would never look like a tranny if you would wear girly clothes. Maybe strange but that's it. And being a specific type doesn't put you in a inescapable form. You can still wear girly clothes but in a way a Dramatic Classic would. This applies to everyone btw. You can wear what you want but add softness/edgyness/classiness.

Here is Diane Kruger in girly dresses but with some edge and classiness.

The dress fits Diane perfect but it looks bad on Jennifer. You see jennifer has curves and she needs more drama in her clothes. This dress is too girly and classic and therefore she doesn't look like herself.

I would love to do some requests but it's sometimes hard to find the same dress on different types. But I try my best!

Jennifer Hudson is a SD and Selma Hayek is a TR. TR is smaller, more delicate, sharper bones in the face and body and has shorter arms and legs. SD has longer arms and legs, muscular, the waist is moderate, facial bones are sharp.

This outfit is edgy. It looks better on Jennifer, because Selma needs something softer. Her whole styling is harsh with the severe high ponytail and it makes her older whereas Jennifer looks fresh and cute

awesome thanks so much! this makes me feel more certain that i am indeed an SD and not a TR.

kibbe typing actually makes me feel more comfortable and less insecure because as an SD i used to be frustrated because a lot of "girly" clothes looked silly and awkward on me, like i was a big woman into dddlg or something lmao, but a lot very masculine clothes made me look chubby and too covered up. now i know exactly where to choose yang things and where to put yin things and why. also my favorite go-to lbd that i bought years ago happens to be the quintessential SD dres: puffy square shoulders, draping and gathering, cinched waist but long vertical line, and lace details to soften the black. i feel clocked.

now i feel like i can do some "riskier" looks without worrying that i'm going to feel embarrassed as soon as i leave the house.

So, I think I'm Soft Classic? My only "A" is my big nose. I feel so jealous of the gamines! I would love to dress in a more butch/dapper style but it would look so silly on my shape. My style tends to be very feminine (florals, graphic prints, waist-emphasizing), but I think those tall, lean ladies look so badass in suits and more masculine styles. OH well.

those are my numbers, not really sure which i am. i'm 5'9 with long legs, pear shaped body if that helps.

i think that i have some understanding of how this works simply because i used to try to wear lolita and look horrible, but switched to gyaru and look great now.

i definitely think there are types of styles/clothes that will never ever look good on some people, and trying to find my way around that has helped me alot!

Thank you for the response anon! I actually have fairly shit bdd so it's hard for me to give an answer on whether my face is soft or harsh etc because I just don't know, I could just about answer the q's in the video. I'm 5'5, and I have very muscular legs but the rest of me is meh, I'm overweight now which helps nothing. I have a broad chest but not huge boobs, gain weight in my stomach easily and have long thighs in proportion to the rest of me. (Yes I hate myself) Facially I look like if the sceneybopper singer Lights had a baby with a 90s Kate Winslet.

As I see some of you are confused, I am posting this chart, I scored 40, a soft gamine, while trying to figure out my other results I'd be a TR or SC.
You can convert your scores as:
A, 0 points
B, 1 point
C, 2 points
D, 5 points
E, 4 points

No. 92882

>>92858 you sound like a SN to me because of your soft face (Kate Winslet has a soft face), muscular build, broad shoulders and moderate waist (you said you gain easy weight in your stomach area).
>>92864 This method seems okay but for >>92858 it isn't working since the diagram puts her onto the SC category and her result is too diverse and her description of her build doesn't fit SC at all. But since anon said that she has bdd I am a bit insecure.

>>92848 you have a lot of contrast overall and I would say you are a Gamin although Kibbe says Gamines are smaller than you. Bridget Bardot and Audrey Hepburn are 5'7 but they look smaller, petite. The diagram puts you between G, C and SG. You are high contrast, so no C but SG and G seems alright.

If you were DC then you would have fewer D and E answers. You are too soft to be a DC overall. I would like to know your bone and body structure. The diagram puts you into FG and SN category btw but I feel like you are a bit too balanced for FG.

>>92855 Anon here!

I am 5'5 ft. My body type is quite skinny and athletic looking but not muscular. I tend to not gain weight. I think my limbs are on the longer side. I consider myself not "soft" looking at all but I do have average sized breast and hips and my waist is quite small. I think my shoulder are quite prominent part of my body. Overall I think I have quite balanced body?

My face is very yang I think? I have small face, medium sized eyes and full lips but sharp and big nose and chin and high cheekbones.

Hope this helps!

No. 92891

Ok thx these answers are more detailed!
All body types can be underweight, normal or overweight but that don't change their bone structure.
Your bones are yang with wide shoulders, long limbs, athletic build overall but not too muscular. But you still have some curves although you are skinny. You are definitely a Natural, probably a SN. Being SN doesn't mean you are disproportionate but your features are a bit more angular than a Classic. Your E and D answers come from your curves and face (full lips, small head).

No. 92894

Your answers indicate that you are a Natural leaning towards Soft. I think it is your hips which make you a soft type. The description says you can have irregular facial contours and an angular bone structure which makes you possibly believe that you don't have much yin in you.

No. 92917

No. 92920

I tried to identify my type, watched multiple videos and yet I have no idea which one am I. I feel like my physical perception it's really distorted, making this really difficult… also drastic changes in weight and ED's just makes it harder.

The woman in the video that OP linked says that your type is the same even if you put on weight, but I don't see how??

No. 92923


Your bone structure never changes due weight. But I get that it is hard to find out if you gained weight. Your shoulders are a good indicator for your structure since you never put on weight there. Some women have wide, broad, angular, round or sharp shoulders. Then look at your limbs which don't change their length after gaining or losing weight.
Also the size of your feet and hand don't change too much and your height stays the same.
Some women can lose a lot of weight but they still have muscles or curves. If they gain weight, they get really lush but with a defined waist line. This is the case for soft types usually. There are also women who gain a lot of weight but they remain straight in figure and gain weight in the waist area. If they lose weight, they look figure-wise like the typical model. This is the case for dryer/dramatic types.

those answers match soft gamine, but if that seems really incorrect, check out the descriptions for TR and SN.
i find that in order to hone in on your type you have to do the test, AND, read yin/yang descriptions, AND a few videos comparing different types against each other. since we have slightly different perceptions of what is big/small/sharp/long etc, it can be confusing to use the test alone.

also, when you say face and body, there's a few more subcategories to consider
facial bone structure
body bone structure
body "flesh" and curves
facial features

for example, i'm soft dramatic, my facial bone structure is mostly A, body bone structure A, facial features (eyes lips) D, and body flesh D.
if you can differentiate which is which i can give you a better guess

I think she is a TR because she is very soft (lots of E and D answers) and she lacks some Yang (answer A) to be a SG but she has several B answers which are soft Yang. She is a little bit too dry for R type and too soft for SG type. Definitely leaning towards TR type. But since your results aren't conclusive you can experiment with the three types R, TR and SG and see which fits you best.

I looked this up:
>If your answers are dominant column E and/or column D, with several answers in column A as a secondary force:
>Soft Yin with a slight Yang undercurrent - Theatrical Romantic
Note: To qualify for this theme, your body type (flesh) and your facial features should be Yin-dominant while your bone structure should be slightly Yang-influenced.

>If your answers have nearly an equal mixture of opposite extremes from columns A and E, yet you also have several extra answers in column D:

I'm confused about what I could be, since although soft classic seems to match my results I don't really identify with it (or any of these types, thanks to body image issues).

I'm a 5'8 with what I would probably call a broad build - hips and shoulders are larger than average and equally wide, ribcage is broader than average (yay eternally wide-set boobs), and there's a 10" difference between my waist and hips. Weight gain goes to hips, boobs, and waist, but not arms or legs, and even at very low weights I'm still broader than average and similarly proportioned. My hands and feet are kinda long.

I have a diamond face, largish deep-set eyes, and I'm often mistaken for being a teenager despite being 26. My lips are average, my cheeks are kinda chubby, and my nose is slightly aquiline.

I've felt burly and unfeminine my entire life so I'm hoping this will help me feel less like an impostor whenever I try to wear anything that isn't jeans and a tee.

Sorry if I typed too much!

I suspect SN although your answers are dominant C. Your description fits perfectly with the SN type because you are rather broad but soft and a soft face.

The diagram says SG which is BS since you need a high contrast and mostly A,D and E answers.

This topic seemed interesting because I've always struggled with feeling that something was always "off" with the outfits I wore. Its quite frustrating and I really hoped that this test would help to shed some light, but I'm still very much confused lol. I guess it is worth mentioning that my view of my face and body can be quite distorted and at times inconsistent. Even with the visual aids, I found it a bit challenging to pick out traits that were similar to my own. I was wondering if any anons could provide me with some insight as to where I might stand. I just want to wear nice clothes without looking so "wrong".

>Height: 174 cm/5'8"-5'9"ish~

>Dress Size Range: US 2~4 or UK 6~8
>"Classic" Body Type: Banana
>"Classic" Face Shape: Diamond???

My figure is usually described as being boyish (straight up and down, slightly toned, building muscle seems to require a little less effort??). I am slightly taller than average (if we take the North American average of 5'4" as a reference point) with a bone frame that leans toward the smaller end, but I'm not at all lanky. For the body portion of the test, there was an equal distribution between A and C responses. In short, I'm horizontally "boyish" (narrow and even "banana" proportions) but quite proportional when you look at the "vertical" ratios (ex: leg:torso).

My face is…weird? My results for that section (#10-15; #16 was for hair texture) came back as: 2 A's, 2 D's and 2 E's (so there is some blending???). I feel like my face shape reads as more androgynous (high and prominent zygomatic bone, slightly longer than wide face, slightly larger chin, thin lips) but a number of my features (large and roundish eyes, small mouth, rounded nose, tapered jaw) sort of "softens" things up and makes it more boyish rather than the all out "you could fucking cut diamonds with those cheekbones and that jawline" look that some may associate with androgyny.

If it helps, for anyone here who does cosplay, I tend to suit young male characters best. Generally speaking, I am too masculine for cute young female characters, not sexy enough (lack the proportions and features) for more mature and sexy female characters, and not "sharp" nor masculine enough for older male characters. I don't know if this point helps very much at all tbh.

I had to repost this to make corrections to the English and I apologize for such a long winded post.

Probably a SC because you are balanced with Yin influence. You lack a high contrast to be a SG. Your clothing choice should be soft, girly but still classy. Of course some styles that fit SG perfect is also suitable for you as a SC as long as it's not too girly. Classics are very versatile, be happy :)

No. 92997

You have a lot of C responses (which implies a more solid balance between "Yin" and "Yang") and many D's and E's (considered to be "Yin" qualities). If we were to go straight by these numbers, I would agree with >>92996 and say you are "Soft Classic" (balanced with a notable "Yin" influence). Classics seem to be like the "Oval Face" shape of Kibbe's categories, in that because they are so balanced, they are more versatile than those whose type lean' toward either extreme. If you your answers had presented more contrast between "Yin" and "Yang" - for example, if you have a super "Yin" face, body composition, and weight distribution (a lot of D's and E's) to contrast against a more "Yang" bone structure - you may have potentially fallen under "Soft Gamine" but it is impossible to say.

No. 93000

Ok you figured out a lot by yourself already which is good.
The diagram puts you in between FG and SN. You are not FG because you don't have much contrast between Yin and Yang. Your dominant main essence is Yang (A), you're still balanced with a yin undercurrent. This description fits for SN, and SD. I feel like you could have too much drama to be a SN. I can't decide between these two. Maybe an anon can help?

I would also say SN. But you are definitely no Gamine of any sort because you have no extremes of yin and yang.
Remember that Gamines are not always small and petite. Bridget Batdot is 5'7 and curvy but she has a sharp bone structure. Romantics are also small and delicate but they are overall rounded. TR and SG are very near by and get often confused. SN can also be smallish like Emma Stone. At the first sight you could get her confused with a Gamine because she is cute, girly and rather small in size. But if you look closer you see that she has wider shoulders, her body is more yang but still soft at the same time. If you would put her in Gamine clothing and styling, she would look separate from herself. Emma looks best with natural soft hair, makeup and styling like a typical SN.

According to this I am SN (exact 31 score), for some reason I relate more to FN though. I don't feel like I have that much Yin in me, the only Yin answers I gave were pretty irrelevant like my tiny hands and feet or rounded eyes. I'm not that soft and fleshy and it seems like most SN's are pretty busty, while I'm not, I just have a dramatically large ribcage and a laughably short waist. My body is pretty close to Farrah who was typed as a Flamboyant Natural, plus for some retarded reason people have compared me to Taylor Swift before, so I definitely have some yang and drama in me. Most of my answers were either C or B. I'm so confused!

If you already found a style you love and which fit your personality, I see no reason to change it. Kibbe is for people who are looking for a style, who ate indecisive and confused with fashion in general.
I really like your style, it has a goth/rock chick vibe to it! If you want to experiment with SC and really want to incorporate it to your style, I would look for softer materials like velvet to combine with your leather jacket. Also softer, more girly cuts for your shirts and dresses in general. Try to incorporate different colours which go well with black and would soften your look like jewel colours. No hard contrasts! I would leave your hair it is since it looks like a signature style and it looks somehow soft yet edgy.

Anon the time has come! Ethereal and ingenue fairy doll princesses humblebraggers have arrived kek
This is Kibbe theory and there is no ethereal or ingenue bs and will never be. It's for snowflakes and cows who feel so special and above everyone else. You can't take the test without paying money nor read a coherent text. For all the people who want to know what I am talking about:

You can have a special pretty face and be still a Dramatic, Classic or Natural or whatever. No category is more attractive than others, it is not about beauty! It's about lines and forms. Every type can be styled to look like they are out of this world. Models are nearly all FN or D and they are practically made to make dramatic over the top looks to look good. They are still people and without the proper styling they look just plain like other people.

Lily Cole is FN and no Ethereal Ingenue bs. She looks hideous with clothes this website recommends for this ~ethereal fairy queen type kek but she looks great with FN styling.

I don't think I look more attractive than anyone dafuq, I think I look too ugly and weird to be a SN. If I'd wear SN, I'd look like a literal frumpy autist because my face looks weird and I don't feel like I'm actually yin enough to be a SN. I'm not fleshy and busty like other SN's, I don't have that feminine sexiness.

No. 93256

But why did you ask if you were ethereal? Ethereals are apparently from out of this world. Attractiveness is in the eye of the beholder and as I said before:there are pretty and not so pretty examples in every category. SNs are a irregular type, which means that weight is not evenly distributed. They can be underweight, normal and overweight. You probably don't weight much and therefore you might feel you have less curves than other SNs. And sexiness is a feeling and not exclusive to a type. Every type can be sexy when styled right.
I have a tip: ask a friend or your family to take the test for you. You stand there, say nothing to them. Other people are far more objective!

No. 93257

>tfw take the test and realize I already dress in the recommended style for my type

No. 93258

No… sadly I don't weigh very little and I still don't have the curves of a SN. Like I said >>93221 my shape is fairly balanced with a small bust and more yang arms and legs. I feel more like a FN in that regard but I'm not tall enough, the only softness I have is in my face, not really my body (small hands and feet aren't exactly gamechanging yin. I asked about Ethereals because my face isn't sexy or natural, it looks 'dreamy and autistic' according to other people, not like a normal human. In SN clothes I look even more autistic because it's so lazy, it makes me look like a small sick child or something.
I don't know anyone who would want to take the test for me sadly, but thank you for suggesting.

Warning if you do any form of exercise and gain muscle the kibbe test will automatically type you as a natural so you need to make corrections for that.

No. 93322

No. Natural are broader in bone structure and have broader shoulders plus muscles. Dramatics are slim in bone structure but they have broad shoulders and gain no muscles because they are are often ectomorph. For example Romantics are often endomorph and they gain fat plus muscles but muscle gain don't make them broader but more defined.

Fat and muscles never change your bone structure!

No. 93329

Btw most women are SN, SD. Pure types like N, G, C, R and D are rare and the rarest type is D, followed by FN. This thread proves this distribution.

And don't ask me about trans women who will change this distribution for sure. But I don't think you can use this technique for a man's body since all men are a lot more broader than any woman here

did that happen for you? because it's not true in my experience. i used to bodybuild and even at my most buff it was still obvious i had very narrow shoulders, at a skeletal level, even though i had delts. even the muscle texture looked different from yang muscle type. it was never long and sinewy and dry, looked more like a buff version of the "soft flesh" aly art talks about. so i still would've gotten the same type.

here's an example, the two women in the middle have a similar amount of muscle, but the one on the left clearly has wider shoulders. differences in body length, hand size, shape of hips, facial composition etc are also going to be unaffected.

the only way it could effect your type is if you get so super shredded that curves you normally have disappear, so then you would just think of how you look at a more typical bodyfat.

No. 93333

i tried plugging in a few men and it doesn't work. they all end up D or FN, even the "feminine" ones. I explained why here >>92814

the test would have to be inverted and remade for it to work for men.

instead of high estrogen yin on the left and neutral yang on the right, it would have to be high testosterone yang features on the left and more neutral features for yin. Does that make sense?
Yin and yang translate completely differently for the sexes because of hormones among other things. Yin features for men does not mean big boobs and an hourglass figure and yang for women does not mean a tree trunk neck and a caveman brow. There's some overlap of course but the test would need to be designed with men and testosterone features in mind, just like kibbe is based around women and estrogen heavy features.

I've never disagreed with the results of a test so much. Apparantly I should be a 'Dramatic', but I look nothing, absolutely nothing like any of the examples I have seen of this Kibbe body type. I think the language used makes this harder to parse for certain body types, I'm very short with very narrow bone structure, I'm compelled to pick 'A' answers because those are the ones that address the leanness of my body. I think I am more of a Gamine.

File: 1535765038439.jpg (44.21 KB, 500x500, kibbe1.jpg)

Since it's hard for some people to figure out which type they are and the Kibbe score diagram >>92864 is sometimes off, I decided to google some other methods to determine your body type more precisely.

You look at your results and devide them into Yin, Yang and balanced.

A and B are Yang
C is balanced
D and E are Yin

We take >>93839 as an example:
A = 3
B = 2
C = 4
D = 6
E = 1

Yang=5 (A+B)
Balanced=4 (C)
Yin=7 (D+E)

Now we arrange them from the highest to the lowest points:

This means Yin, which has the highest number (7 points), is the dominant influence. Yang is in the second place (5 points), followed by Balance (4 points)

So because Yin is her main influence, we can clearly say she is somewhere on the right side of this diagram.
Now we look at Yang. Between Yin (7 points) and Yang (5 points) is only a difference of 2 points, which puts her slightly next to the center. If the points were equally large for example, then she would be exactly on the center of this diagram.
Now we look at her Balance (4 points) which determines her energy. She has a moderate to high energy which puts her between G and TR. Since we found out that her main essence is Yin, we can be sure she is a TR.

Hey! So, I took the David Kibbe body type test and I still find it difficult to understand. I first thought I was SD bc I’m 5’7-5’8 at most and I look very tall but I do have some curves. I also have wide shoulders and I do feel that my sketelon is on the wide side, so I thought I was Soft Natural, but they are supposed to shorter (be part of their Yin side) so I thought since A n B answers I might Be FN, even though I have hips and all. I 70kg and not as thin as the models shown, so maybe I confuse softness with excess weight? I don’t know lol

No. 95357

Most likely not all of them are accurate, but it should be something like that. I'm very short, and despite being a bit underweight (4'11 and 85-90lbs) I don't really look that skinny, I'm more on the "skinnyfat" side.

I'm tallish (173cm but usually mistaken for shorter) with broad shoulders, wide hips (~0.72 WHR regardless of weight), long legs, long hands (19.5cm), big feet (US 11), a small but soft waist, average boobs (usually a D cup regardless of weight), and a rounded diamond face with a round nose, slightly full lips, soft cheeks, and roundish almond eyes. I gain weight pretty evenly, I always look slightly soft no matter how much weight I lose, and when I eat healthily my BMI sits around 22.5 (it's currently down to 19 due to an illness, and I look super weird). My hair is soft and slightly wavy (2a), and although the strands themselves are fine, I have a lot of them, so it looks fairly thick.

so theatrical romantic? most of mine were e/d but only got 2 A (1 a if 4. doesn't count). my bone structure is yang and my body type, face and flesh is yin. or am I just whatever D is (she never really explained just D?)

No. 117870

I've read/watched so much stuff on Kibbe typing and I still don't know what I am because I have such a warped sense of self, eugh.

I don't think inverted triangles are inherently naturals. Broad shoulders and narrow hips are both yang, so they could also be the yang element needed for dramatic classic/flamboyant gamine.

Check out Aly Art and Merriam Style's videos for ideas. I've attached a video explaining coats for each body type to help get you started.

It's equally useful for anyone. Merriam Style has videos on Kibbe typing for plus-size women if you're interested in learning more.

Merriam Style has some videos using regular people as examples instead of celebrities.

You could be a soft natural, or some kind of gamine.

You sound like you could be a flamboyant natural, but if you aren't sure then you could try some different types of outfit and see what you think suits you the most.

You could also be theatrical romantic, or soft gamine.

Lots of D answers implies theatrical romantic. One or two A/B answers in a sea of D/E can probably be ignored, since there aren't really any people who fit each type perfectly.

Thank you for your input anon. I guess I’m theatrical romantic but I’ve read somewhere they’re supposed to be really short. I’m kinda tall (170 cm). They’re also supposed to have a very feminine face https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/seasonalcolor/kibbe-s-theatrical-romantic-t1988.html

I'm 21 and I agree that none of this is wearable. I think what helps the most for me is just avoiding frilly or trendy stuff, going for more 'minimalist' pieces, and using Pinterest for inspiration. I don't look up Dramatic Classic though because it tends to be a waste of time.

I’m fairly certain I’m a Dramatic. I was uneasy about taking the advice because I’ve always tried to soften/conceal features I don’t like. Like my sharp jawline or my prominent nose.

I decided to get a super sleek/angular pixie cut. I’ve tried to focus on dressing myself with a vertical line in mind too, but it is a little more challenging for me. Random people approach me and compliment me most times I go out. Both men and women. Which I have never experienced before. At first I thought maybe I looked gay or something, but my friends told me it’s because I’m pulling off something most women don’t feel like they can get away with.

Yes I would love to look like Scarlet Johansson and style myself with long loose curls, feminine dresses, etc. But I’m not that kind of beauty. Doing something that suits me has made me feel way less insecure.

No. 118126

I’ve started limiting my color scheme in my overall wardrobe so I can swing more monochromatic outfits. If I want to bring in interesting color or something I’ll do that primarily with accessories and shoes. I also follow the geometric pattern only rule.

The right t-shirt + jeans has become my go-to though honestly. It might be sort of boring but it looks good.

No. 118138

IMO vertical line is more important than height. If you're 5'7 with a large head, you'll look shorter than a 5'7 person with a small head. Instead of using the actual heights, see the chart as a list of vertical lines going from longest to shortest.

So I think I've determined that I'm a Soft Classic. Do any anons know of any idols (or any well-known Asians in general) who have this body type? Not to be all 'muh representation' but I have a hard time visualizing how things will look on me when watching Kibbe videos because Aly Art tends to use white models who won't really look like me even if we have the same Kibbe type. I think it'd be a bit easier for me to understand my type more if I saw how it looked on another Asian woman. If anyone has any ideas or examples I would really appreciate it!

No. 118200

Hi anon I'm Asian too and was wondering the same thing! I found this blog post which has a small list of Asian celebrities.
I personally also tested as soft classic but unfortunately there arent many there listed.. and even among those there arent many pictures of them in "realistic modern fashion" I could find. Eg Maggie Chung was popular in the 90s and 00s.. so I can only find her in very old fashioned or over the top clothing. Sometimes I think I might just be a soft gamine or smth just bc I cant relate to any soft classics lol

You could be either Soft Classic or Theatrical Romantic. Your main essence is yin with D and E being most of your answers. Then C which is balanced and very few yang answers (A and B).

I took the quiz and it kind of makes sense, but I don't think I've "got it" all the way. I'm pretty sure it guessed correctly though.

I got soft gamine, and I kind of fit the bill facially and height wise, but I have a body shape that's kinda tricky to dress. My bmi is 19 and I look okay just in my underwear, but in heels I look chunky, boyish and wide on top with really tiny feet and in a lot of clothing cinched at the waist I end up looking kinda tubby, skinny jeans make me look like a tired mom who's given up. My body shape is more or less banana with b cups and straight hips but my widest part is my thighs which makes wearing flats look weird.
Any ideas on how to dress? When I wear things that aren't teenager clothes or loose and casual, and when I want to look grown up, I always look like a tubby auntie instead.

Soft Gamine is basically a small hourglass with soft curves and sharper bones and a lolita vibe. Your description of yourself doesn't fit Soft Gamine at all. I would like to see your answers, your height and how tall you appear (you can be tall but appear small due to proportions), and bone structure. Just based on your description you could be a Soft Natural who are broad and with a feminine/soft face (see Scarlett Johansson).

I unintentionally finally figured out my type! I ordered a whole bunch of clothes, with a few 'risk' pieces that I wouldn't normally go for and didn't think would look good on me, but wanted to try anyway and damn turns out that exactly those pieces look fantastic on me. So I basically did a reverse search and after narrowing it down to a few types that fit my height, I figured out what type would wear those clothes and now it makes totally sense!

I got Soft Gamine, then Gamine once and a bunch of times the answers didn't result in anything (there was no category for my score).
My body shape is a rectangle with a tiny bit of waist definition, I'm 163cm tall. Like the lady on the far right in pic related, but with slightly thicker thighs than hers (my widest point) and sort of more "compact" since I'm guessing I'm shorter. I'm a size XS for tops and S for trousers, and most tops seem to be a bit long on me or would look better if cut slightly shorter.

Kek that comes up if I google edgy cute outfits. I don't find the clothes terrible but on the right girl they look fabulous I think

Here we have it. C stands for balance which makes up the most of your answers. Gamines have no or very few C answers since their type consists of opposites like a lot of A and D/E answers. In your case: C, then E, A, B/D. Overall you have a little more yin than yang in you which means that your type is approximately in the middle of this scale >>93847 leaning more towards yin. I think you are a Theatrical Romantic which makes a lot of sense since Soft Gamines have a lot of in common with TR.

I assumed I was a dramatic classic, but after taking the test I'm not so sure. I got:

>A: 1

>B: 3

I'm wondering if I messed up by thinking about different features in too isolated of a way, instead of comparing them to each other, but I really struggle to think about my body in an objective way.

I'm 5'8" but I look a little bit shorter, and although I have broad shoulders and ribs I also have wide hips, so I guess it could balance out? I'm a bit pear shaped (my top half is a dress size smaller than my bottom half) but I look pretty balanced overall. I have wide, fleshy cheekbones (think Kirsten Dunst but with a narrower jaw), average lips, an average nose, and slightly upturned, roundish eyes. Something about the way I look makes me look like a teenager despite being in my late twenties, but I think it's just how rounded my face is. The A score was for my hands and feet so I don't know how relevant it is in the grand scheme of things.

Oh I think you mean tapatalk, right? I noticed that too. Sometimes it's hard to look in the mirror and decide which type you are without any help. Aly has a cute face but Gamine hair brings out her harsh features which weren't apparent when she had long tousled hair. Unfortunately a lot of women with cute faces get their hair cut short because hair stylists think that they all will look like Mia Farrow or Audrey Tautou who are Gamines in fact. Then they end up looking like Scarlett Johansson.

Since I've discovered the Kibbe system I've been looking at other people and how their style matches their type. Ever since I feel like that as long as the outfit is well styled and accesorized most people seem to look just fine without taking how blunt or sharp their shoulders or w/e are in consideration.

I've been thinking and (this might be a bad comparison and only make sense in my head) but I feel like it's similiar to how in the early days of modern make-up people would accentuate blue eyes with blue mascara or eyeliner, now a make-up artist would do that with some warm reddish color to off-set the blue. I've been thinking that Kibbe's mindset in how it wants perfect ~~harmony~~ instead of contrast might be a little outdated. It is only a theory after all and nothing set in stone.

I could be wrong of course but what do you think?

Of course the system isn't perfect and outdated to some degree. It's the same with face shapes. Oval is ideal and all the other face shapes are flawed and need to achieve harmony.

I agree you're Soft Dramatic.

Kibbe is from the 80s so the outfits in the book are truely outdated. The outfit ideas you find on Pinterest are by random people with different tastes which you probably find ugly/conservative/whatever.

So I suggest that you start your own Pinterest collection. Look for celebrities who are the same type as you. Here's the list >>92698

Kek. Don't get me wrong, criticism is always good. But the author has no leg to stand on with her new invented TyPeS.
She ONLY takes very good looking women as examples who must be Ingenue or Ethereal in her opinion when in reality she's just distracted by their beauty. If those beautiful women get older (or styled ugly), it's apparent that they are not Ingenue or Ethereal but any other generic type and they are just styled properly and are very pretty. Good looking people tend to look better than others, so here's that. Plus she only shows them in gowns on the red carpet. Sure they look fabulous and elven-like but so do Romantics, Gamines, Naturals, Classics and Dramatics when styled properly. She never shows street style examples because literally everyone would look ridiculous and try hard with uwu-Ethereal-Ingenue clothes which are actually intended to wear at a special occasions. That's a special snow flake syndrome right here.

Reminded that personal style =/= body type.

You can embody any personal style and look good if you wear the right lines. Style guides like the Ethereals are just that - guides that help you create a mental frame of different style profiles if you're confused and can't conceptualize aesthetics. If you want a controlled lab test that will reveal your personal style like blood type you won't find what you're looking for. Your input if what matters.

I don't think that's the way to go about that? Just because xyz celeb is xyz type doesn't mean they dress after it.

Imo stop looking at ugly old fashioned examples so much and just look at a garment and go down a mental checklist of your types "requirements". Surely it isn't that hard to tell if a garment is "intricate" or not, "loose fitting" or not, "symmetrical" or not, etc.

So I took a quiz to figure out my type and I got classic. However I definitely feel like my features depart from that greatly and that I might be either a gamine (or one of the subtypes) or a soft natural–wich are on two different ends.

I've been told that I look similar to Audrey Tatou when it comes to facial features (and commonly classified as a flamboyant gamine). Have all of the exaggerated facial features that fall into the celebrity examples I have seen. Still I feel like I lack the boyish/stick frame that most gamines would fall into, and have more broad shoulders and bigger and and feet like a natural type might. However my face doesn't really look similar to most natural types (except maybe Selena Gomez). Honestly think I'm doing something wrong here.

Even if you are the curviest /sexiest woman on earth (not saying Kim is the sexiest but this is how media portraits her), you can look broad and manly in the wrong lines (except you wanted to achieve this on purpose for whatever reason).

Elyssas guides are somewhat helpful with Kibbe, but she always goes on on about how much of a Soft Gamine she is - but I just don't see her as one since there is nothing Soft Gamine about her. I think she mistyped herself. What do you think, anons?

No. 121711

I think it's quite funny that Ellysas, Ally and Merriam typed themselves as Soft Gamines but no-one really fits the type. They act like experts but can't get their own type right.
Ally could be a Gamine but she looks like an old Lady with Gamine clothes. She looks fabulous in a shirt, jeans and a natural styling. Merriam is delusional because she can't get Kibbe facts straight and takes money from people to type them. She has a typical natural face which is nowhere near Gamine. Even if her body was Gamine, she would be probably a Flamboyant Gamine. She is nowhere near soft. And Elyssas is delusional about her type too. She's so cute and petite kek. She lacks sharpness in her skeleton plus she looks bad in Gamine clothes/styling. She looks like a grown woman who wants to be a teenager again. They all look horrible and I wouldn't take any fashion advice from them, although they have good and informative videos from time to time.

No. 121775

Agree, Merriam looks so pretty with long hair and more natural type styling. Soft gamine looks odd on her. She looks more like a dramatic classic to me.

The kibbe system itself makes a lot of sense, problem is that the test isn’t specific or clear enough.

No. 121800

Gamine is a just a mixture of opposites. Yin (feminine D and E) and yang (masculine A and B) characteristics. It really has nothing to do with looking young or feminine. No body type is cuter or prettier than any other, they’re just a collection of lines for you to work with.

Aly Art often says that gamines look like “teenage girls” or “little girls”. Disagree. You can be any type and look youthful (Miranda Kerr is flamboyant natural and she looks very young imo).

No. 121801

Aly is kinda full of shit half the time tbh.

However the "vibe" of a gamine is defined as animated and boyish, so it's definitely a youthful type. Not cuter or prettier than other types as you said, but the proportions (large head compared to body, making you look petite regardless of height) make the silhouette read young. Miranda Kerr has a very youthful face but if you saw her body with the face blurred you wouldn't have any doubts that she's a grown woman. A gamine can often be mistaken for a much younger person due to the proportions. Unless your face and body are extremely different types, I'd probably just dress for my body type rather than muddy the waters with my face.

I do agree the opposites thing is the most important part of the type, though.

That is a typical gamine line

If I hold my hands over Aly's face, I see a gamine body. In combination with her face it doesn't look this way anymore but like a grandma. She also hides her real features on her videos for example showing only the front of her face. I had to see through 8 videos until she showed her profile finally. She also creates a rounder outline for her thin lips to fit the Soft Gamine type better. She does have many yang features and I don't know why she sees herself as a soft type. She could be a Flamboyant Gamine. This type needs drama and Aly looks really great with wild long tousled hair and clothes a la Gwen Stefani who is a Flamboyant Gamine too. FG are very diverse and don't need to look necessarily young/cute/boyish.

I don't know which video it was but Classics tend to be more flexible than any other type since they are balanced. You can borrow certain elements from other types and it would look fabulous.

There's no fucking way Ellysas and Merriam are SG. This makes me so paranoid that I'm mistyping myself too if I have any kind of latent body dysmorphia since I do like the idea of the kawaii uwu SG.

Aly, I can see why she sees herself as gamine, but not SG. All types are going to look like "grandmas" eventually anyway but I think she's riding the gamine thing too hard. She looks ridiculous in all the bold eyeglasses in her videos recently. I agree she looks more herself in longer, "natural" hair and I think her features are too moderate/average to be gamine.

Some women struggle to grow up and live in a bubble where they are still young and cute. Yes, you are probably young and cute but not like a teenager anymore. More like a young woman with curves and edges and lots of character.
Quite honestly I don't mind if they all want to be Soft Gamines because reasonable women will look even better next to them. They can have all the pink frilly uwu kawaii dresses on this world but they will look like huge babies or like trannies.

Some tips about determining your type until I get around to posting some exercises DK posted on FB:
-height is a factor. If you're over 5'7", you must be a D or N, but if you are short you can be any type.
-clothing has no type. Anyone can wear anything if it's styled correctly
-R is always soft and fleshy unless underweight. They have very small bones. Think Marilyn Monroe
-TR is R with added narrowness/sharpness. They will never ever have wide shoulders and may or may not be curvy. Think Vivien Leigh.
-SG has both more sharpness and more roundness than TR. It is slightly broader than TR. Bette Davis is the iconic SG.
-SN is the widest boned of the yin types. She may have a stereotypically gamine personality and can express that, but she should still stick to SN lines.
-all of those types above are petite with some natural curves and softness. no exceptions.
-a cohesive outfit always looks better than a boring one, regardless of whether it fits your "type". Because of this, it's easy to trick yourself into believing you are something you're not.

I used to delude myself into thinking I was a kawaii uwu SG too, lol. I look so much nicer now that I've embraced my actual type and coloring. I used to look like a gawky teenager but now I literally turn heads walking down the street.

This is true. For an example of how SC can dress casually, I love Grace Kelly. Kibbe calls her the quintessential classic and she looks gorgeous in casual clothes.

I might be off base here but I got curious and checked the test with your results. 5'10 is quite tall for a Classic and the logic of C answers that "x if proportional to the rest of my body" means that it's appropriately big for 5'10. By your description I imagine you as tall but with more waist definition. Might be worth a shot to check out Soft Dramatic even if it goes against the answers.

It really depends whether height matters or not for Kibbe types. Different people claim different things.

I was saying to dress for the body type not face (if your face and body are really different types) earlier but now… I have to reconsider. Maybe the "vibe" has to come from the face (colors, prints, detailing, etc) and the actual silhouette cuts have to come from the body shape?


No. 121963

I took a test and got soft gamine. I'm pretty confident with that answer, since one of the upthread images has Winona Ryder in that category and I've been told I look like her.

I also like and already wear a lot of the reccomended clothing, like skater skirts and small dresses.

No. 121966

I'm tall, but I don't have a lot of things the average tall woman has (I mean that I have a different body type than the average model): my legs aren't very long, just average for my height, I have big feet and hands, but they also don't look as long and spindly as many other tall women's.
I probably have wider hips (around as wide as my shoulders), my waist is my thinnest point, my chest is medium, but on the other hand I'm also naturally a bit on the more muscular side and my facial features are a bit too strong. I wouldn't really see myself as soft…?

No. 121967

I'm SC. Coloring is something he talks about in the book and in person with people who consult with him. If you wear colors that aren't nice on you, you won't look as good. For example I used to wear a lot of bright pastels, but they washed me out and made me look tired.

You only need to look at bone structure and flesh for determining type.

her hair sucks in both pics and I think she looks way better in soft colors tbh.

No. 121985

She looks younger and happier in the after pic but Kibbe's taste is sooooo 80s kek.

Apparently SG, G and FG look good in unnatural and vivid hair colours. So theoretically she should look good with this light blonde colour. I'm indecisive if it fits her or not. Her mousy brown hair she had a little while ago was way worse imo.

Yes DC

TR I agrew

Probably FG. You have very little balanced features and lots of contrast.

Yes you're leaning more towards DC according to your answers. Your height isn't a problem if people guess your height right. It's more about proportions. Also DC is the tallest among all Classic types.

No. 121987


Thank you link anon. I honestly will just tell someone else to do the test on me because maybe you guys are right and i'm not being objective.

I'll give you some examples:
>My eyes are VERY round, droopy, small, and slightly widely spaced. No option fits this, not even vaguely. All wide set options are for narrow eyes, all round eye options are for big/upturned/close set eyes.

>Because of my fat distribution my flesh feels very different in my upper and lower body, so all flesh questions have either no answer or are all over the place.

>The waistline question jumps from "slightly defined" to "very small" with no in-between, normal, defined waistline. Like ???.

There were other things too but i can't remember right now.

>My eyes are VERY round, droopy, small, and slightly widely spaced. No option fits this, not even vaguely. All wide set options are for narrow eyes, all round eye options are for big/upturned/close set eyes.
Yeah I see your problem here. I would opt for answer D in this case.

>Because of my fat distribution my flesh feels very different in my upper and lower body, so all flesh questions have either no answer or are all over the place.

There is just one question of your overall body shape and the other questions are more specific. I would leave this question out and at the end of the test I would estimate the significance of this particular answer. You can post your answers here and we'll take a look.

>The waistline question jumps from "slightly defined" to "very small" with no in-between, normal, defined waistline. Like ???.

I have nothing to contribute but a compliment, I found out about Kibbe and the seasonal color analysis through LC and both have helped my style a lot. I was never big on fashion to begin with but now I at least know how to make solid choices.

The only testing insecurity I have is that I'm a 5'6 gamine – many say it's impossible to be a gamine above 5'5. I know myself and my clothing fit well enough to override that rule, though

This might be a dumb question, but can one be a gamine type without having a large head?
I’m not tall (rather short actually) but my head isn’t big which means I have a medium/slightly longer vertical line. My test answers come back for gamine/flamboyant gamine.

Is it okay to compromise on one key element for your kibbe type if you stick to the other key elements?

No. 123784

yes. for example, if you are a soft gamine and say you don't like waist emphasis, you don't need to wear it as long as you stick to enough SG key elements like a high/contrasting neckline, fitted cuffs, small details and so on. You don't need to wear 100% of the recommendations all the time to look good, I'd say.

Soft dramatics look tall and they have long limbs. You look softer plus your limbs are shorter.

I don't post my face anywhere else on the internet; people would be damned to try to find me and dox me elsewhere. I don't post my face on threads where I've given any personal information. It's usually on /soc/ or cosplay threads where I drop a pic with a one sentence caption, and leave.

>a friend or sister or something

I'm an only child and social isolate. Even if I wasn't, I don't think someone would watch a half hour of Kibbe body types on YouTube to determine mine for me. I'm on a thread dedicated to it, it's less of a pain.

>Any help you're getting online is from enthusiasts who don't necessarily know more than you do

I have this dress and it's probably my #1 clothing item that looks best on me. Thoughts on what kibbe type this dress could "belong" to?

No. 124268


Imo this dress has some contrasting elements. Some are from the Gamine family, the others are from yang types like Dramatic or Natural

Gamine family elements
>cuffed at the wrists
>high neckline
>waist definition
>heavy print on contrasting flowing fabric

>long unbroken silhouette
>no color blocks
>loose tailoring

Which part of the dress do you think flatters you? Its long lines and relaxed fabric or that it frames you with the waist emphasis, buttons and cuffs? If it's the first I would say Soft Natural, if it's the second I would say Soft Gamine.

I think Dramatic Classics can have some A answers in their skeleton, as long as Cs are still in the majority.

You're a gamine if you have extremes of yin and yang, with few or no C answers. If your skeleton and flesh are all mixed and C answers are not in the majority, you can't be a classic.

I'd recommend trying on clothing recommendations, since DC and FG lines are pretty different.

It's definitely the long lines and relaxed fabric. The neckline I wear buttoned down because I feel it looks "constricted" otherwise.

No, you stay forever in one category - no matter your weight or muscle mass, if you're an adult. But if you're teeanger you can be at first a Gamine and after puberty a Classic for example.

No. 124326

You're most likely a Dramatic Classic since they appear a little bit taller than C or SC. Although you're small (5'3), you still have a tall vertical line. If your face looks like Grace Kelly, who is a pure Classic, then this will also push you into the DC/C category.

No. 124349

Thanks, everyone! I'm definitely a soft natural, which wasn't something I had even considered before. I was stuck on the fact that (probably since I'm a light-skinned Mexican) I get a lot of comparisons to Selma Hayek and Sofia Vergara, so I thought I could only be in the TR or SD category.

Good question. Aly has made a video about Kim and how plastic surgery impacts your type. Kim is naturally a Soft Natural but wanted to look glamorous like a Romantic/Theatrical Romantic and that's why she got surgery. She looks great in Soft Natural styling and clothes but since she botched herself, nothing really looks right on her anymore.

Yes some women have the same problem. According to Kibbe the body is more important. Mia wears a wrong line though and therefore she looks quite strange here >>124422
She looks good here >>124365 because she's posing in a certain way that we assume she has a romantic body type. I would love to see that outfit without photoshop and posing honestly.

No. 124538

Outside of the Kibbe system there are some universal rules like if you have wide shoulder, don't emphasize them but make em appear softer with falling silhouettes like oversized pullovers. He just categorized bodies and applied certain rules which already existed. I think his system is legit but he has no taste indeed. He's stuck in the 80s and it's horrible to look at his styling tips for women.

No. 124539

If I only look at Merriams body and not her face, then I feel like I look at a Dramatic Classic. She looks very balanced but has a bit of yang in her. Her shoulders aren't too wide or soft, her hips and waistline seem also moderate. Gamines consists of high contrast which she doesn't have in her body.

Now her face is mostly yang. There is no softness except for the eyes which are big but this doesn't qualify her for the Gamine category. Her face is Dramatic imo.

If I look at the two pictures on the right, then imo she looks better with the blazer which gives her more yang and sharpness. She looks like a grandmother with soft clothes.

Imo she's probably a Dramatic Classic although her face isn't so balanced. I can't imagine her wearing clothes a la Cate Blanchett or Tilda Swinton. Maybe she should try pure Dramatic lines though because she looks kind of boring and frumpy.

No. 124580

Soft natural for sure! (B-Dominance in skeleton and facial bones, with yin flesh). But since I can’t see your body, maybe try the type’s clothing recommendations and see which look best on you. If you’re a soft natural, flamboyant gamine will look quite separate from you.

Judging from your answers, I’m pretty sure you’re neither DC nor FG, as you have no sharpness, but bluntness in your body.

No. 124582

I took the test twice. First time leaned more towaards flamboyant gamine due to having primarily e's and b's as a close second.

These were the results for the second time:

Vertical line: e
Shoulders: b
arms & legs: b
hand & feet c
overall body shape: b
bustline: b
Waist: b
Flesh on upper body: e
Jawline flesh: e
Nose flesh: b
Cheekbones: e
shape of eyes: c
lips: d
flesh cheekbones: e
Hair: b

I can't believe I got soft natural this time around. A part of me feels it doesn't fully fit as my hips are on the slimmer side and my shoulders could possibly be a bit too broad to fit. The description of soft natural does sound like it could fit me to some extent though since I do have a yang type skeleton, yin face and have quite a bit of flesh on me despite being 101 lbs at 5ft 1.

On Reddit truerateme you must rate people from 1 to 10. It's simply superficial and about attentiveness.
This here is Kibbe. All types are beautiful and no one is rating anyone here, just saying what bodyshape they have like apple, hourglass and so on except in this case we have 13 body types. Some women need help in order to know which line fit them the best.

Everyone here who thinks we are rating people's attractiveness is either a man or just dumb.

No. 124617

Quick and condensed shaming is all your post deserved since you obviously made no attempt to understand what this thread is about and just opened a quick reply to be annoying. The entire point of the Kibbe system is to NOT judge, rate or compare which bodies are better than others since all of them have unique features and beauty. It's about being the best version of yourself and also helps train your practical perception of aesthetics like understanding visual weight, harmony and interaction of elements - skills useful and applicable to other creative areas of life.

I think that anon is definitely one of the yin leaning types, but i don't know a lot about the differences between those types.

No. 124871

SD has mostly A answers and few D/E answers. This anon >>124831 is right with her tipping. She >>124805 is definitely a TR because she has mostly D/E answers and few A answers.

If your answers are evenly split between yin (D/E) and yang (A/B), then you have a high contrast which means you're most likely a gamine. Can't be sure 100% without your answers.

Kibbe himself said you can't be over tall and a TR. The tallest official TR is 5'7", and Kibbe said he thinks she isn't actually even that tall.

No. 124876

My ansers were 9C, 2B, 2A, 3D and no E's.
So, classic obviously, altough I feel between DC and pure C.
I was thinking I could be N before, but don't think I am "heavy" enough. I have wider shoulders than hips, but my chest is proportional to my hips, and even if I feel insecure about having big shoulders people often say they don't notice them straight obviously when looking at me.
Tbh, Kibbe for me is better when I think of the 5 basic types, the inbetween ones difficult it all, specially when you first hear of it.
So my tip is to first analyze what you're not according to the descriptions of the main types.

No. 124881

So you probably have like 3C and 3D and 3E (6D/E) - 7A which isn't really qualifying a a Gamine indeed. SD is the right choice for sure.

Height is relative for Kibbe. There are for examples Gamines who are 5'7 (Audrey Hepburn, Bridget Bardot, both are Kibbe confirmed) and taller 5'10 (Zendaya) although Kibbe states that Gamines can't be 5'6 and taller. Women are getting taller and taller plus it's more about the vertical line. We should ask anon >>124805 how tall she appears. Do people think she's smaller or taller than her actual height?

No. 124882

> Women are getting taller
meaning women are getting more yang dominant

Height in kibbe is relative to some extent, but that doesn't mean that someone who's significantly taller or shorter than X type (Like Zendaya) can still be that type.

No. 124884

Yeah, Zendaya is more of an exception. I have the feeling that a lot of farmers here want to be Gamine so badly although they are pretty tall. Tall Romantics and Gamines are very rare and the likelihood to be a one of these exceptions isn't really given. There's a very small possibility though that anon is a tall TR instead of SD.

No. 124889

ot but I honestly don't see the appeal in gamine, they look so kid-ish it almost looks wrong. If I could choose my kibbe type it'd be a romantic for being very feminine or a classic for being perfectly in proportion or maybe one of the tallest types just for the sake of being tall.

No. 124891

Soft Gamine here, i think the wannabe gamine-ism is so funny, because i always wanted to be a dramatic or classic, if i could i would look just like kaya scodelario.

No. 124899

Kibbe has said elsewhere that he thinks all celebrities exagerate their height. So in his opinion if a celeb says she's 5'7 she's probably about 5'5.
If you don't identify with SD you could check out FN (since a lot of people confuse bluntness with softness, I've heard of FNs thinking they're more yin than they are) or FG again (since a lot of people have a really inaccurate idea of FG and just go super twee)

No. 124901

I don't get the obsession with gamine as if gamine is the only type that can age good. The Romantic types also have features that age good but yet no one wants to be a romantic and rather would have childish/lolita features than womanly features. I'm assuming this is the influence of anime and porn?

Technically, being shorter will make you gain weight worse, 5kgs show different on a small frame than on a tall one.

Most "trending" weeb style suit gamines more, so yeah, probably anime influence.

No. 124914

I … think so? I was at like 110 lbs in high school and I seem to have the type of body type that never gains weight in the torso and never loses it in the limbs. even at that weight my thighs still touched and my arms were still chubby… does that count as flesh then?

I put my vertical line as B, nobody has ever accused me of looking shorter than I am lol.

No. 124955

I'm pretty sure flesh isn't about where or how much you do(n't) gain weight, but how tight ('taut') the skin's around the bones. Check the thread's image, the skin of the women on the left (yin) is very full, not at all tight, the bones don't show up underneath the skin. The more it progresses to the right (yang) the more tight the skin sits around the bones; cheekbones, jawline, nose, muscles around the mouth become more pronounced, you can visibly see them sit underneath the skin.

If I'm wrong, by all means correct me, but this is how I understand what kibbe means by flesh

I'm 1.69m in height, 61 kilos in weight. my hips and thighs are giant, my upper arms fleshy, my lower legs stick thin. I used to be underweight (it was my normal) and my lower legs looked always weirdly skinny. I also have a short torso and long legs and arms. Arms so long that buying clothing is usually very annoying because while I'm mostly European medium-size, the arms on that size always run small.

Not necessarily, TRs can get their sharpness from anywhere in the skeleton. Many have long arms and legs. Pure romantics can’t have long arms and legs, because it’s a yang characteristic and their skeleton is all yin.

Yes. The thing is no one is a pure type because we are all individuals and some deviations are normal.

Of course. A large head is a yin characteristic, anyway (because it creates a short vertical line). Salma Hayek is a TR and her head is large.

Fuck, I hate how mismatched I look, and I can't even find my type, I always get classic, but I'm taller than classic type (5'8). If I pick clothes to match my face type I look weird because of my body, and when I dress very "classy" I look so, so awkward.

No. 125502

5'8 isn't too tall for a classic. Keep in mind that women get taller and taller. Also you're probably a soft classic if you're having a cute soft face. Look at Leighton Meester or Jessica Alba. Both have cute faces but they are soft classics. You need to go for balanced cuts with a soft touch. Maybe add some gamine or romantic elements in your classic style

No. 125546

I have this issue although I'm not as tall (5'6").
What that anon says sounds about right. I find myself having to balance mature styles with cute elements, but if I go too far one way I look either too old or too young lmao.

For example I like wearing cuter shoes like oxfords instead of heels. Or I buy dress pants and skirts with button embellishments. Or just something like a peter pan collar on a blouse, or one small bow on some flats.

I'm a dramatic classic.
I like edgier type of clothing and look very well in gamine-esque type clothing as long as it is clean cut. The more makeup I put on, the shittier I look. Too much jewelry or big pieces definitely look wierd on me. I look more put together with hair that is cleaned up or somewhat elegant styles or simple pretty styles.
Pretty much, imo, as long as it looks clean cut (less is more or simplified is more most of the time) I'm good.
In the end, I'm just a subtype of classic so as long as I don't stray from that I'm pretty okay.
Before I took the test I thought I'd be a flamboyant gamine for sure if not a soft gamine. It has made me realize I look more…"refined" or like a little lady or some kind of adult child compared to gamine. I dress how I want though.

If anybody cares and wants, I can post a collage of some outfits that work and don't work for me.

For sure.
I mainly wanted to know my Kibbe thing so I can experiment more. It's fun figuring why certain things work or not. I hope everyone just has fun and doesn't take this stuff toooo seriously or becomes frustrated.
Obviously, I don't take it serious where I'm matching all the office clothing under dramatic classic on pinterest. That's just not for me.
I like dressing up and am always experimenting and open to suggestions. Even though my makeup is better on the simple side, I still play with that too.
These are just some clearer photos of this spring/summer where you can see most of the outfits. I desaturated and spoilered the collage just to help keep it on the down low. I'll kind of run through them with my opinion (left-right, top-bottom):

1. It's hard to see, but it's a collared dress in a sheer material. The collar is sharp with some very small studs. The top part looks great on me and helps make my face look nice. If the fabric was heavier and more fitted, it would work better. No loud shoes or socks. Overall a pass.
2. The stripes of the top clash with me and the velvet and mesh material is too soft for me. The neckline is the saving grace. If the outfit gets louder, it won't work. Only extremely simple accessories work and clean, simple makeup.
3. I can pass in this type of gamine dress, but the print doesn't particularly do much for me. The collar is round and would look better if sharp (but round Peter Pan collars are my weakness). Again, I can't let this get louder as the print is already enough as are the rounded sleeves. Would be better tailored.
4-5. Simple and sweet with more solid material that hugs my body without being overly sensual really works. Like this, I can add makeup or accessories that don't surpass my essence, but can be a little more bold.
6. The skirt's line is too long for me. It is too loud. The simple cut works. The top is fitted, the collar is higher, the material is solid. This top always works for me dressed up or down. The heaviness of the fabric in this outfit supports my bone structure.
7. Too yin for my yang. The heaviness of the fabrics and simplicity saves me.
8. It is simple and clean. I like to wear a bra that has bows that peak out through the straps of this top. That is already too much if not enough on top. The material is heavy and supports my bone structure. The shoes are patent leather, pretty loud.
9. I'm wearing a collared shirt under the sweater. I think it is a gamine/classic look. I pass well with this look. The skirt print is pretty animated. I can't let this get louder. For example, no printed stockings would work for me with this or flamboyant jewelry. It would have to be very subtle.
10-12. Doesn't work for me. 10 is too flowy, unconstructed, loud, and long. Its so bad jfc. 11 I can get away with by trying to give the illusion of tailoring with folds and tucks, but its too much. I still wear this outfit though because I enjoy it. 12 suddenly makes my yang show in a not so flattering way so I'm very careful with this dress and what I add on. I like it, but it isn't my best look either.
13. I can pass with the neckline, the simplicity, and yang-supporting heaviness of the fabric, but it is too unconstructed for me to positively stand out.
14. I can get away with the same as I can with 11, but moreso because it is much more toned down and simple. Very casual and decent. My makeup can be clean and bolder.
15. Doesn't quite work. The thigh high socks with that skirt seem too much. Shorter socks would be better next time. Also, that shirt is actually not fitted and kind of kills the look too.

So yeah, no trenchcoat in my closet. Just nice, plain coats. I don't own a pencil skirt either.

Can anybody help with more dramatic classic hair by the way-like very long styles? I've just been looking at Demi Moore (she seems like an older, more yangy me).

sorry for reviving a dead post put omg, I'm a dramatic classic and "cute & romantic" was my worst fashion phase. I never understood why I looked so… weird. this comparison sums it up perfectly.

the test only confirmed what I knew about myself and my own wardrobe. thankfully, I learned very early to ask "would I like this on me" instead of "do I like this" and/or "do I like person x's look".

the fact that the test pretty much confirmed what I learned by carefully observing how fashion works for different people shows that it's pretty useful for people who don't have the right eye or don't want to invest a lot of time into figuring out aesthetics.

I tried two different tests, on the first (from OP's linked video) I got mostly Ds but she doesn't say what Ds mean? I also got 4 natural and 4 for romantic. but honestly some of them were just guesses even when I used pics of myself.

I got
A - 2
B - 4
C - 1
D - 5
E - 4

I got 5 Ds and 4 Es so….. theatrical romantic? or could I be flamboyant natural because I got 4 Bs and 2 As? but I could be a soft natural with my mostly Bs with several Ds (5!) and 4 Es.

the second test I got completely different results though

A - 1

Not sure if it's confirmed, but D is basically a "sharper" yin. Kind of like B is a "soft" yang. Nonetheless, it's not really its own category. D answers are usually Theatrical Romantic elements.

You also sound like a Soft Natural to me, if your description is accurate! TRs won't have many B answers (since they have a Dramatic undercurrent, not a Natural), and on both tests you had quite a few.
If you are unsure, maybe try this: put your hair into a romantic hairstyle or try on romantic jewelry like on the images on the left (make sure everything is small, rounded and neat)
Soft natural hair and jewelry like on the right (more tousled, chunkier but still soft and slightly rounded).
Romantic lines will bring out your blunt angles if you're SN, and it'll be a bit too delicate for you. SN lines on a R are slightly overpowering.

Thanks anon! I was having trouble deciding on soft classic, theatrical romantic and soft gamine but I felt like soft gamine was always a bit too twee with too many random details and TR didn't match my overall appearance (I don't give off a "sexy" vibe at all and am not very voluptuous), too much detail and frills made me look like a fruitcake even on my own wedding, so SC is a possibility.

I also wear glasses and have shoulder-length hair, and one issue I have is that they always make me look kind of busy and frumpy. My hair is also naturally unruly and frizzes up easily which looks bad. That means I'm probably SC, no ?

Also one more question - are there any easy hairdos I could do for a SC? It feels like a death sentence because I'm naturally clumsy and frumpy and really don't know how to groom myself or pick jewellery so it makes sense that I never look good…

No problem! If tousled and slightly messy hair looks really frumpy on you then you're probably a classic. Naturals can pull off that kind of hair and it won't even look messy on them.

I think Kate Middleton often wears great SC hairstyles, they're simple and neat. As for jewelry - make sure it's not too fussy, Classics look their best when their accessories are understated and not super chunky or delicate.

In my opinion you look balanced but with a little bit more Yang. For example your hands are answer B and your waist and breasts are answer A which give you the Yang undercurrent. Your arms, legs and your whole body seem pretty balanced though. Naturals have more muscle mass than you have. Olivia Palermo's body reminds me of yours.

Kibbe has nothing to do with how beautiful you are. Every type is beautiful in fact in its own way.
And Madonna is definetely a Romantic because her features are very rounded, small and soft. You can see this especially when she was younger. Nowadays she's too muscular, too thin and she butched her face with plastic surgery. Her face looks harsh indeed and it doesn't suit her at all.

No. 126836

That's how a lot of celebrities are sadly. There's no in-between anymore, if you're thin you have to be super thin if you're curvy you have to be super curvy if you're muscular you have to be super muscular and so on. Everyone just wants the extreme look and nothing is flattering anymore

As for kibbe it does unnecessarily overcomplicate things and doesn't really help with finding flattering outfits because there's such a diverse range of body types and even if a few people are the same "type" not a lot of things will look good on them

Kibbe taught me to embrace my features instead of working against them. When I was younger, I tried to hide my yang influence behind cute feminine clothing, not realizing that the contrast highlighted my harsher features. I thought that wearing minimalist, classic clothes would make me look manly and old, but it's the exact opposite. It suits me.

Madonna changed her appearance to reflect the opposite of her natural type which makes her look kinda off.

I noticed something very interesting lately: mostly Naturals tend to go under the knife to achieve a Romantic body type. Of course other types do it too but if I look at botched plastic surgeries, the amount of women who are SN,N,FN is overwhelming like Kim Kardashian, Mia Khalifa, Iggy Azalea, Katy Price, Kylie Jenner… There's also this Youtuber I forgot about and damn she looks busted with her 24 years. She made her breast, ass and face to look more curvy like Beyonce who is a Romantic. She looked so cute before ps and ugly mismatched styling

I bet that's because naturals are most average. And not average like perfectly balanced average like classics are. just average.. Every other type has something that makes them stand out (romantics are sexy, gamines look childlike etc), naturals are pretty much defined by the lack of something that stands out.

No offence I'm a natural myself but it's unfortunate.

but supposedly a lot of super models are naturals, so that should count for something, right?

Naturals can pull off gorgeous boho styles though, which can look really pretty, especially if you go with a forest elf kind of vibe.

I'm a soft classic and it's really annoying because nobody cares about soft classics and all the tips that exist are so vague. Like, the only thing people can agree on is that Marion Cotillard is one, the rest of the recommendations are always the same as soft gamine and too twee.

I think she's an Ingenue Theatrical Romantic bc her natural face and body don't qualify for Gamine at all. Gamines can wear short hair very well, especially with a lot of contrast. Ariana looks best with long and natural/soft looking hair colors (balayage etcetera. She also has close set eyes which a lot TRs have. With all that plastic surgery she's pushing herself more into the SG category for sure. But she's still looking best with TR clothes and she's loosing her chic and looks like a nun with high collars which is typically a Gamine's best friend. It makes Ariana just dull, she needs her sexy TR clothes with a youthful touch to look good.

No. 127611

>Looks good with long hair
Uhhh, her hair looks dead, especially the highlights in the photo you posted. I think she'd look really nice shoulder length and her naturally curly hair. She could pull off the feathery baby bangs well with shoulder length hair, it didn't look too well when she tried a few years ago.

No. 127614

So I am a soft natural, and I want to start buying clothes by my type; however when I look up for inspo on Pinterest or Google, all of the recommendations are so ugly and dated

Also I don't know if this is relevant at all but I am pear shaped.

No. 127786

Yes business Japanese fashion is a great inspo indeed for SN and SC because the trend at the moment is soft, relaxed, flowy with waist emphasis. Asymmentrical styles with no frills/details look better on SN and symmetrical styles look better on SC but that's just a side note bc it's pretty hard to find something that's suitable for your type and fits your personality and style.

I believe it's because these women have a preference for turbo-sexual looks that clash with Natural body types. Naturals have their own charm but it comes alive in relaxed lines that are most commonly used in casual and more modest styles.

Meanwhile these girls want the Fashion Nova look of skintight skimpy outfits, tons of makeup and intricate hair. Naturals look awkward in those styles because of their blunt bones and might even sometimes look like men in drag due to their wider shoulders. So they opt for fillers and surgery to try and achieve a body that compliments the styling they want.

Vogue knows what they're doing imo and they always style Kim very nicely. She looks really beautiful in their photos and you can't even see her corrections. But we know Kim will never choose to dress this way. She likes chic, glam and slickness.

Kibbe's taste is shit indeed, like he's stuck in the 80's. But keep in mind that it's all about the lines. His theory is legit and I have to say it helped me a lot. You can have any style you want but you have to consider that certain cuts and lines don't flatter you. For example you can be a Dramatic Classic but you could dress in a cute way and it would look great if the lines fit you. You can a Romantic and dress in a cool, edgy way but you have to consider the right lines again.

I'm 5' 3" and really slim, I don't gain weight easily and people often think I'm younger than I actually am, I always have trouble finding clothes that suit me, everything is too big or baggy, I need to look for really petite clothes and shopping is hard, especially because I have an hourglass figure and my thighs and butt area are thicker than the rest of my body, so I'm kind of disproportionate on that regard. My arms, hands and ankles are kinda long and frail, I'm a chestlet and my shoulders are sharp and broad, my eyes are small and almond-shaped, my facial features are pretty androgynous except for my lips and nose, this is the main reason I look like shit on heavy makeup because my facial features are way too sharp, my head is smaller compared to my shoulders and my bone structure is sharp.

You look kinda like me but with small shoulders (i'm this anon >>132836), very soft adn slim, i think you're a Romantic.

No. 132938

slimness has nothing to do with kibbe

What's your height? Do you have a better, front facing picture?

No. 132953

I'd say one of the classic types. Maybe soft, if your face isn't super dramatic or mature looking, because the dress is kinda soft and it looks good on you.

She looks too tall and not fleshy enough to be a romantic, and she would have a more exaggerated hourglass shape from this angle and in this pose.

what's my type? i have no pictures but my measurements are 32-27-38. my waist is very pronounced but i have high hips and long legs (i'm 5'8), my body is quite soft but i have quite a long face and sharp angles (high cheekbones, sharp nose - but have quite big lips). i think i'm in the middle of them all but haven't been able to figure it out

I've gotten pretty even numbers in a lot of categories, so I'm having a hard time figuring out where I fall. Maybe flamboyant gamine?

yes it does. slimness is a huge part of your body's yin or yang structure. slim doesn't mean skinny in this context.
that's basically correct width instead of wide is a better word to use.

No. 133020

I think you're a dramatic. That's really tall and you probably have a really sharp bone structure.
Maybe SD? It doesn't sound like FN. You tall women have it easy though, just look at the celebs and descriptions for FN, SD, and D and pick what seems most accurate.

My guess is that she's a Soft Dramatic. She's similar to Rachel Weisz. Both look unkempt in Natural styling, Dramatic Classic styles look to boring and severe like a secretary on them. They need drama with a soft touch to shine.

I'm the anon here >>133271, I was about to say Lolita but then I noticed the whole style was more Soft Gamine/Ingenue leaning than anything and a Romantic would look ddlg-like in that style without a really specific tailoring, my bet on Cult Party might not be the best but honestly Jfashion is way too Gamine-inspired to give it a Romatic turn on a succesful way imo, maybe something like this? (I know it's too busy-looking but it's what I found)

No. 133296

Hate to say it, but that looks like a carnival's clown costume. With most j-fashion in general you're going to really stand out. If you wanna dress like that, why would you even bother with kibbe? No one's gonna notice that the clothing you're wearing fits your body type really well when all they're going to see is a weird girl dressed in a weird outfit.

No. 133311

No. There's a girl at my uni who comes in in a complete lolita outfit + parasol everyday. I used to hang with two fully decked out goths back in HS. Some people do wear costume-y/j-fashion or otherwise highly alternative fashion on the daily, so I see no reason to assume this wasn't the case if it's not specifically mentioned otherwise. Especially considering the weebish userbase of this website anyway.

Is it possible to have a different face type from your body? I have a soft natural body but my face is leaning mostly towards a more romantic face because i have very fleshy/chubby cheeks, smaller and more delicate features so picking out clothes is kinda hard for me.

No. 133325

face doesn't really matter. if your body is SN, you're SN. we're all women after all so it's not uncommon for any type to have "delicate" features. There are plenty Dramatics and Flamboyant Naturals with delicate and soft face, it's all about the body's structure.

No. 133334

Somewhere upthread it says that you should dress more for your face, if your face doesn't match your body. I figure this is true, as a SD with a purely A/C face, I can get away with a lot more dramatic styling options like angular jewellery and geometric patterns, short androgynous hair, more dramatic leaning colour schemes and minimalistic clothes (as long as they fit my curves)

I think you can make lolita coords that fit the recs for romantics without too much effort (pic related). Larme would be really easy to make work too, since it's basically normie fashion. You shouldn't worry too much though anon. Wear clothes in the styles you like. If you feel they really really don't flatter you, just change the way you put your outfits together.

Kibbe says you should dress for your body, there are other systems that use basically the same category names that say you should dress for your face.

Brands like Atelier Pierrot, Mary Magdalene and Victorian Maiden all make a lot of lolita clothes that will flatter a romantic type just fine.

I've been into Kibbe type (active on this thread, too) for a few years and I have to say the Truth is Beauty system makes more sense to me. Ethereal and Ingenue being said as "special snowflake" classifications doesn't make much sense to me because it seems like this is more of your issue with your fear of women using this against other women to humblebrag. I don't understand with Kibbe, that face type is taken in account with body types, and that Gamine somehow is appropriate yet Ingenue doesn't exist. Gamine refers to a boyish and impish quality, so why would it describe all women with youthful characteristics? There are some women who look youthful but girly at the same time, instead of boyish. I guess the argument could be made that teenage girls look Gamine, but many of them fit into the Ingenue category as well. How is that adult females who used to be girlish at a point in our lives, the classification doesn't exist yet somehow the classification of boyishness can exist throughout our lives?
Ethereal to me is just someone who's face looks like its drifting off and creates a "fairy" look.

EGA is just another subset of lolita, no one even calls it EGA anymore because its irrelevant

Someone please could be so kind to explain why Alyart defines Gamines as being "equal from shoulders to hips" (a rectangle shape) and "equally proportioned everywhere"? isn't that literally classic? why there would be two types basically representing the same proportions? I thought Gamines were a random mix of ying and yang and that is why they usually look somewhat strange (like Tina Turner and her super legs with non-existent torso), but every time Alyart shows her rectangle-like body as a "sample" of Gamine I cannot help but see a boring shape with nothing going on, neither Yin nor Yang, what's up? Not even mentioning her pinterest board for FG/SG literally consists mostly of classic models wearing the typical korean-like classic clothes that you get in the instagram feed: many classical suits and simple sets, a lot of physical balance, there is nothing proportionally "abnormal". Gamines are allegedly a very strange body type in the population, yet all of this clothing seems like the type any normie could wear. Aly, "*~Colorful and quirky~*" classical clothes are still classical clothes, it's all about the lines and those lines are proportionated aka classic.
Even Kibbe gave up on this long time ago, just stick to your lines and you will be ok.

The only valid Ingenues are babies, they're very small, rounded and cute, they're the most femenine human form and that's why "ingenue" clothes, like frills and soft fabrics fit them so much: they literaly have no shape, they're just a blob.

No. 137770

I mean "femenine" in the sense of roundness/softness, women are generally the softest human form of course but babies are totally and absolutely rounded with no yang at all (sharpness/height/width, even Romantics have more yang compared to them since they're adults). Ingenue it's a meme and no adult can pull it off without looking laughable at best and very questionable at worst, babies/kids are the extreme opposite of yang features, being the ones "ingenue" clothes are actually designed for, not some weird womanchild who wants to be an uwu little loli.

lmao tall skinny women are treated like lepers by society unless they’re in the 99+ percentile of facial attractiveness. It’s true that there are other tall skinny women who can become a model if they have a “unique” face, but that’s only if their legs are much longer than their torso (leglets are a no go), and they still can’t get dates (unless they make enough money to get a golddigger bf who will take all their money and give it to a short plastic bimbo Stacy).

No. 143977

I don't see why not, almost nobody fits into one type 100%. It does affect the clothes in that you want to wear stuff that flatters a larger chest, but the general vibe, colours and materials would still be the same.
Stuff like the axes femme blouses in >>143584, >>143585 and >>143586 might be hard, though. Especially the last two seem like they'd look like shit on a large chest, so keep an eye out for garments giving the matronly 'boob curtain' effect.

So, the quiz says I'd be a romantic. Except I have tiny tits, huge pointy nose, small lips. This would be a dealbreaker, right? So what does that mean?

I got soft classic on a test I took and thought the picture they put for it seemed nice so looked up how I should style myself and I hate it. Why is every single celeb with that body type an old lady? I don't want to dress like that! Fuck kibbe, I wish I was a gamine.

That's how I felt too.
But I don't think the ideas of a dude in the 1980s should be followed religiously. You need to wear things that fit your personality and environment. The tips about a balanced classic look with some softer elements is something to keep in mind though.

Height is always a big problem since you have to get clothes tailored, the taller you are, the easier it is to exemplify your bodyline.

No. 144075

Pretty little thing is a pretty good place to start for an updated aesthetic. They have stuff that shows off your waist and some off shoulder stuff too. It's more of an insta baddie style overall so you may have to dig a little.

Something I’ve noticed
A lot of short cows are soft gamine or flamboyant gamine and try to style themselves theatrical romantic and look ridiculous.
A lot of tall cows are flamboyant natural and try to style themselves soft gamine, they wind up looking equally ridiculous.

No. 144124

Also, the test is not an accurate way to find your type. Most people have confirmation bias and type themselves more yin than they are.
The height limits are strict. If you are over 5’5” you are not theatrical romantic, romantic, or soft gamine. Honestly 5’4” is really the limit for those types.
If your over 5’6” you can’t be soft natural or soft classic
If your over 5’7” you are either soft dramatic, dramatic, or flamboyant natural. That’s it. Even if you think you look shorter, height=yang and needs to be accommodated.
There are no exceptions to the height limits.
I score romantic on the test but am theatrical romantic. Almost everyone scores more yin than they are. And a lot of the celebrity examples are bs, for instance Kim k gets typed theatrical romantic but is an obvious soft natural.

No. 144148

How do you know whether you're D, DC, or FG ? I'm thin, 5'5", with a narrow-ish ribcage but balanced torso, but really long and skinny arms and legs. I'm definitely one of these types but it's really hard to tell whether I'm yang-dominant or balance-dominant or mix-dominant.

No. 144280

i tried the kibbe thing the other day and it was confusing, and gave me very unrelatable examples, both for styling and examples of body types…
how am i supposed to relate to really skinny and/or fit white celebs with straight hair? is microanalyzing my body really that useful to dress as a commoner?
and all the examples of clothes were old lady clothes, or shit everyone stopped wearing in 2010. not to mention i'd look like shit in those because they accentuate parts of my body that aren't exactly flattering.
i feel like this is for a few people and definitely not for all. shoutout to everyone this theory has actually helped, though.

I recounted and saw 5 D's which is theatrical romantic, but that looks like a complete opposite of my body since I don't have defined curves at any weight. The last option for a lot of opposite yin and yang's is gamine but they tend to have larger heads so idk. Any help?

No. 144284

Thanks for the help anon, my face is oval,I have big eyes, thick eyebrows, a straight nose and very thin lips. So mostly yang features but with big eyes and no sharp cheekbones so overall it's pretty soft I'd say.

FG was my first choice but people IRL think I am 5cm/2" taller than I really am, and a cropped leg doesn't really suit me imo (makes it wider at the calf) , I prefer elongating my legs.

No. 144285

>but people IRL think I am 5cm/2" taller than I really am
>and a cropped leg doesn't really suit me imo (makes it wider at the calf)

IMO it doesn't really matter. The overall impression is more important. I'm Gamine and don't fit into descriptions 100%; for example, I can't wear cropped pants as well because I have cankles (unfortunate genetics).
I don't insist on you being an FG of course. Alternatively you can be Dramatic classic, I think. I guess it's easier to figure out by thinking on what type of clothes, prints, accessories etc. suit you the best instead of focusing solely on body type.

Just found out about Kibbe and am a little confused what my body type. Per Aly Art's test (answers: body - DBDEDBCDD face - EEEECDB) I fall into soft natural, but the recommended outfits online seem to make me look like a grandma. I guess my other potential body type would be some gamine since my head is pretty large, but small patterns seem pretty horrid on me. 5'5", measurements are 35-25-37 with 29.5-ish inseam.

No. 144298

what does the skin and hair of the women in the examples have to do with anything though? It's about the shape of their bodies and the clothes they wear on it.

You need to look past the styles or trends you see in the example pictures and just take the requirements of what your garments "should" be for your type and apply it to your clothes.

Let's say you're a FN and you now think you can only wear boho. But that's not true. Instead of staring at boho FN moodboards you can simply take FN requirements for clothing (long vertical line, unconstructed, relaxed, oversized details etc.) and apply it to any piece of clothing. Does this piece of clothing create a long vertical line, is it relaxed and unconstruced?

See I don't get questions like this >>143584 for example. An SG blouse should have (among other things) small, feminine details and a high neckline. Surely you can look at this blouse and see that it has small, feminine details and a high neckline, therefore well-suited for a soft gamine. (And similiarly not for FN)

Stop staring at shitty pinterest boards. You're not limited to whatever style some random user who might or might now understand kibbe well has pinned to their board.

Remember that kibbe is not about the styles you see on example pictures, it's about the lines of the clothes.

A yin blouse like this should look "seperate" on a broad, yangleaning FN frame. It's a very delicate, feminine blouse with small feminine details (like the buttons, the frills and the tiny bow). FN benefits from less delicate, unconstructed pieces and details should be larger. So if you want to go strictly by Kibbe rules, then the answer's no.

How can I style this tunic in a way that suits a SG. I bought it because of it’s very animated and feminine detail, however, I’ve been having trouble styling it since the hem reaches my crotch area, so it’s too short to be worn as a dress (so it has to be worn with trousers) but too long to be worn as a shirt and it gives me no waist emphasis, as a result, I look rather fat if I tuck it in or leave it untucked. What ways can I style this to make this tunic work? Should I have it altered so that it’s shorter?

Yes I'm FN aswell! Imo FN is easy for casual looks (I wouldn't even know where to start with a businesslook). For example a casual loose summer dress, especially in cotton or other slightly heavier fabrics is great. Or mom jeans with a relaxed open blouse, or in the winter with a chunky sweater and a long coat and a long scarf. A lot of what's in fashion right now fits natural types really well. Just avoid those really frilly dresses and tops with tiny prints. I think pic related is pretty good too: chunky, textured sweater with a big turtle neck. The pants aren't tight. sharp or very tailored but more relaxed aswell. Fabrics are natural. No sharp lines in the sneakers. The belt could technically be bigger for FN standards I guess. I'm no expert though!

No. 148020

Samefag, but I noticed that a lot of example pictures for FN are terribly ugly, outdated and aimed at older woman I guess. I really try to look at a piece of clothing and think: does this dress or top or whatever meet the recommendations for FN in terms of shape/fabric/silhouette/lines/details? It's so easy to get stuck in those example pics and think that's all you can wear.

Part two of Tiffany's series on kibbe, the four youtubers and her got typed by cozyrebekah and discuss how they feel about their results and the system as a whole. Ash Tanya and Daily Larisa (the Black and mixed race yters) really liked it, vs. Tiffany and the other two yters who thought it was like a fun buzzfeed quiz but wouldn't change how they dress. The system being developed by a man was a criticism from them.

Should I dye my hair and eyebrows a similar colour oto my skin?

I want to lessen the contrast between my skin and hair.I'm either a +1 or +2 in terms of contrast, as my skin is olive, with my hair and eyes being very,very dark brown to the point of looking borderline black. Aly talked about women with ying, rounded faces being able to pull off having hair that is a similar colour as the skin in vid related, but I was wondering whether or not a SG would have the roundness to pull it off, since my eyes are moderately sized, lips are slightly small to average and my nose is a bit wide, and is sorta like the next pic, but aside from that, my face is pretty round and fleshy

Skinnyfat is when you have EXCESS fat despite normal BMI, NOT when you're skinny and don't have much muscles underneath for God's sake

No. 150399

How do you think that works, brainiac? Skinny fat people have a higher fat percentage than they do muscle mass, which is usually caused by eating little and doing no exercise. So while they are skinny, they are 'fat' because their muscles aren't being used. Yeah, you're right in that they have relatively normal BMIs, but this is skewed by their lack of muscle. If they had excess fat on top of an average amount of muscle, they would just be plain fat or job, hence why when most fatties lose weight through diet and exercise, they look more firm than an already skinny person would do.

Some of the recommendations, imo, are for women over a certain age, often with children- kibbe said himself that young women are meant to experiment and have fun. You see stuff about FN and D having to wear long lines– but a 20 yo model will look great in a miniskirt, no doubts about it.
Once you get really into the system, it's easy to think you're meant to follow it religiously, but … it's just a theory among hundreds. There's lots of ways to look great, especially if your body is fit. Plus the personalities associated to literal body types are a bit retarded, but he had to give it a special twist.

If you're short and not curvy, you could still be a SC or SN very easily and it's not impossible for petite women to be any type. There are max heights but no minimum heights for any type (allegedly).

Kek at the kitty looking up at you all curious

That's what I thought too, my test came out as TR but then I found out it's a meme in the Kibbe community that everyone gets TR at first because that's what everyone wants to be. And also that being 5'9 means you're automatically some kind of dramatic

Took all my strength not to bend down and pet her lol

Trying to figure out my type but I'm just getting more confused, would be really grateful for another opinion?

No. 152370

i'd say soft classic, just because you don't look short enough to be a romantic
t. don't know shit about kibbe

The height thing is mostly irrelevant imo. It's more about your proportions, how tall you look out of context, when nobody is standing near you and no object that indicates relative scale is around you. I do think you look tall but soft so SD does make sense. At first the contrast between the dark tights nude upper body and the lighting threw me off.

Can someone type Jennie Kim?
I am Caucasian and more haggard/exaggerated than her in the face obviously, but we have markedly similar colouring and facial proportions/face shape, and I definitely look better in the kind of hairstyles she tends towards, so I'm curious!

No. 156518

She is probably a flamboyant gamine

I'd say she's a soft gamine

No. 156544

It'd be better to type yourself than base your type on someone else's. Even minor differences can change your type. I agree she's a type of gamine though.

That's for all women who are taller than 5'9: You are limited to Dramatic, Soft Dramatic, or Flamboyant Natural. Always.

It doesn't matter how uwu cute you are, you are tall which means your body is yang dominant. There are no tall Gamines. It doesn't matter if people are taller in country.

Still, you can dress how you want. I love seeing Koreaboos, Weebs and other giraffes who look like giant retarded uwu babies kek

What is Megan? Is it just me or does she look a bit weird in this dress. Why is that?

No. 160459

I don't know what type she is, but I'd say she looks weird cuz pink ruffles and girly aesthetic clash against her sexy mature look

No. 160465

I've seen her typed as dramatic classic a lot.

i did this test https://13perfectshapes.wordpress.com/13ps-kibbe-quiz-female-version/ and got a score of 77, which is one point above dramatic classic but not enough for gamine, is there something in the middle of these or should i just round down to dramatic classic and look at that?

No. 161539

I'm a tr who notoriously gets mistaken for sg at first because I have a babyface, it's a shitty combination because when I dress in a typical tr manner it looks out of place but when I go for sg I look like a ddlg degenerate cosplaying a child
the only thing Ik flatters me is clothes that fit well around my waist but idk what else i can do
wish i could wear fg, sd or even d lines honestly

I did this test and I got 140 so it's between theatrical romantic and romantic. No idea what that means. People tell me I have childish face and I'm not sure if neoteny even fits into that type? So I don't know if I did this test right kek
also ,I have zero fashion sense and I feel like I don't look good in anything

No. 161570

Took this test and got a score of 87. One point below gamine and 11 points above dramatic classic. I took another test before and I got TR. I'm not really sure if I'm near gamine because I don't have a babyface. In fact, I'd say I have an old face. I always get mistaken for looking older than my age.
