Choosing your size, especially in women’s workwear, can be daunting. Did you know that women generally fit into one of 8 major body shape categories. Those shapes are labelled –

  • Straight

  • Pear

  • Spoon

  • Hourglass

  • Top Hourglass

  • Inverted Triangle

  • Oval

  • Diamond

Many people think that shopping by size is the only way but we’re here to tell you that it’s a bit more complicated than that! When Kym designed our hi vis women’s workwear range, she gained insightful knowledge on understanding different body types and what flatters some, may be unflattering to others.

“Whether you’re a fruit, timer or gemstone, there’s a general rule of thumb you should follow when it comes to wearing the most complimentary shirts, dresses, skirts, pants and jeans for your body. I’ve always believed that loving what we wear exudes confidence, and confidence is empowering!”

– Kym O’Leary
