The 3 Morphotypes
Have you often told yourself that you gain more weight or, on the contrary, lose weight faster than the person next door? Don't panic, it's completely normal, we all have different metabolisms.
If you are an ectomorph, you tend to have thin, light bones. You are thin and your metabolism is very fast, so you often have trouble gaining weight.
You have well-defined muscles, often athletic and strong. Your body fluctuates, you lose and gain weight, but you also gain muscle.
It is characterized by a rather round body.
They have, on the contrary, a slow metabolism. As for muscles, you lose some and regain them easily. However, you gain weight quickly and often have difficulty losing it again. Morphologies are a tool to help us find the clothes that make us look at our best.
But be careful, it's not an absolute truth! If you like skinny jeans or balloon sleeves, you don't have to hold back! There is no truth about what fits or doesn't fit us. It's up to you to choose what you prefer so you feel your best in your clothes.
And above all, remember: the main thing is that you feel comfortable in what you wear.
And if possible, it also helps to wear eco-friendly and ethical clothes that have less impact on the environment, so that we feel even more comfortable in our clothes.
