How to Determine Your Kibbe Body Type

The Kibbe Body Types are a series of 13 body types, which are broken down into 5 families: romantics, classics, dramatics, naturals, and gamines. If you want to learn more about these types, check out my post An Overview of the Kibbe Body Types.

What I like about the Kibbe body types is that the clothing, makeup, and hair suggestions for each type aren’t trying to ‘correct’ things like in other body typing systems. Instead the suggestions are lines and silhouettes that coordinate with your body.

If you’re interested in this system, this post is a small test that will let you figure out your Kibbe body type. This test is largely based off of the one from Kibbe’s book Metamorphosis, but I have made a couple of changes for clarity’s sake.

To start, you need to be able to analyze your own body. If possible, take a picture of yourself in a swimsuit or underwear, and make sure that you’re standing straight, and that the camera is neither too high nor too low (around chest-level works well).

If you’re not comfortable taking a picture of yourself, then you can use a mirror for this test. I slightly prefer a mirror myself, since sometimes a camera’s lens can cause distortion, and it can be difficult to take a picture of oneself without anyone else helping.

Now that you’ve seen your body, it’s time to start the test.

Make sure you have a piece of paper where you can write down your answers to each question. Also, please make sure that you write down which section each answer is for! Even better is if you can write down which question each answer is for, but I understand if you’re not comfortable doing that.

For example, something like this will work well:
Bone Structure: 3B 1A
Flesh: 4D 1B
Facial Features: 2D 2E 2B

Instead of this:
1A 6B 6D 2E

That way, if you need help figuring out what your body type is, I can help you more easily. It will also help you figure things out if you’re confused between two or more body types.

Also, please choose the answer that best describes your body. Our bodies are more on a spectrum than in discreet shapes, so not every answer will fit perfectly, especially if you’re young and your body is still changing.


First we’ll start with the overall bone structure.

Overall Bone Structure.

1. How long is your vertical line?

Another way to ask is this, is how tall do you look? If you have a small head compared to your shoulders, you will look taller. If you have a large head compared to your shoulders, you will look shorter.

My vertical line is:

A) Long (I look taller than I actually am)
B) Moderately long (I look like I’m slightly taller than I actually am, but not by very much)
C) Moderate (I look to be my actual height)
D) Smallish (I look slightly shorter than my actual height)
E) Petite (I look shorter than I actually am)

2. What’s the shape of your shoulders?

Be careful about your posture when answering this question, as slouching can change the silhouette of your shoulders.

My shoulders are:

A) Sharp, narrow
B) Blunt, broad
C) Moderate, even
D) Sloped, tapered (can be a bit sharp, but still sloped)
E) Sloped, rounded

3. How long do your arms and legs look in comparison to your body?

This is in proportion to your body, specifically your torso. Even if you’re short, you can still have long legs or arms compared to your torso, and vice versa. If you’re not sure how to check this, just put your arms to the sides of your body, and see how far down your thigh your fingertips end.

Answer C will end at about the halfway length of your thighs, so if you have shorter arms, you’re answer E or D, if you have longer arms, you’re answer A or B.

Make sure to relax your arms while doing this, as stretching them out will make them seem longer than they are.

My arms and legs are:

A) Elongated, narrow
B) Elongated, broad
C) Moderate, even in proportion to my height and torso
D) Small, slightly short
E) Small, very short in proportion to my height and torso

4. What are the size and shape of your hands and feet in comparison to the rest of your body?

My hands and feet are:

A) Long, narrow
B) Large, broad
C) Moderate, neither very large nor very small
D) Small, narrow, delicate
E) Small, slightly wide


Next we have the flesh on your body. Please note, that body fat doesn’t effect this answer. This is about the overall look of your flesh, your skin and muscles.

As an example as to why: some people have very soft and puffy cheeks, even when underweight. Other people have very tight skin on their cheekbones, even when overweight.

If you’re still curious about this, here’s a video that explains why body fat doesn’t effect your Kibbe body type. It’s by Merriam Style, one of my favorite ‘Kibbe Body Types’ YouTubers, and she has wonderful content that analyzes all the different body types.

Flesh on the Body.

5. What’s the overall shape of your body?

This question takes into account both how your torso, waist, and hips look, and also the general look of your arms and legs. We’ll be getting into some specifics soon though, so if you’re confused by this question, try returning to it after doing the next few questions.

The overall shape of my body is:

A) Long, lean, dry
B) Broad, tending toward muscular
C) Moderate, even
D) Shapely, a delicate hourglass
E) Very soft, lushly curved, a ripe hourglass

6. What’s the shape of your bust line, or upper torso?

This question refers to the shape of the bust, and also includes some descriptions for gaining weight, since some body types gain flesh here easily. The actual cup size of your bra doesn’t matter here, since the bust line is relative to the shape of your body.

The overall shape of my bust line is:

A) Flat, taut (I never seem to add flesh here, even when overweight)
B) Wide, broad (I add a little flesh here when overweight, but not very much)
C) Moderate, in even proportion to my waist and hips
D) Shapely, curved, more prominent then my waistline (I tend to add flesh here when overweight)
E) Very prominent (whether I’m thin or heavy, I’m always busty)

7. What’s the shape of your waistline?

Again, this question is in proportion to the bust and hips.

The overall shape of my waistline is:

A) Elongated, but boyishly tapered (even when overweight)
B) Elongated, but broad
C) Moderate, slightly defined
D) Very small in proportion to my bust and hips
E) Softly defined, but tends to be slightly wide

8. What’s the overall shape of your hips?

Like the last two questions, this question is in proportion to the rest of your body.

The overall shape of my hips is:

A) Tapered, straight, narrow (but I do thicken here when overweight)
B) Straight, slightly tapered, and slightly wide (weight collects on the hips)
C) Moderate, in even proportion to my bust and waist
D) Shapely and rounded, more pronounced then my waistline
E) Extremely soft and rounded (whatever my weight is)

9. What best describes the flesh on your upper arms and thighs?

One good way to test this is to feel the flesh on your upper arms and thighs. I work out almost every day and I’m very thin, but my flesh is still squishy and soft, therefore I have answer D flesh.

The flesh on my upper arms and thighs are:

A) Long, slender, sinewy
B) Elongated, tending towards muscular
C) Moderate
D) Soft, slightly short
E) Very soft, slightly wide and fleshy


Now we have the facial features. Make sure that you aren’t wearing heavy makeup that would interfere with seeing the shape of facial features, such as contouring, or overly lined lips.

Facial Features.

10. What’s the shape of your jawline?

My jawline is:

A) Sharp, either very pointed or very square
B) Broad, blunt, slightly wide
C) Moderate, neither wide, sharp, nor rounded
D) Delicate, tapered, or slightly narrow
E) Rounded or softly wide

11. What’s the shape of your nose?

In the picture below, it may be a bit difficult to see the difference between the B option and the E option. That’s because the difference is in the bridge of the nose. B noses that broad and wide bridges, E noses have smaller and rounder bridges.

My nose is:

A) Sharp or prominent
B) Broad or blunt, on the large side
C) Moderate (not very large or small, not very rounded or sharp)
D) Delicate, tapered, narrow
E) Rounded or softly wide

12. What’s the shape of your cheekbones?

Ignore the flesh of your cheeks and look just at the shape of your cheekbones for this question. You may need to feel the bones to get your answer, especially if you have very full flesh.

My cheekbones are:

A) High and prominent
B) Wide
C) Moderate
D) Delicate, narrow, and slightly rounded
E) Rounded

13. What’s the shape of your eyes?

My eyes are:

A) Narrow, straight, closely spaced
B) Narrow, straight, widely spaced
C) Evenly spaced, moderately sized
D) Rounded or upturned, slightly close together
E) Very round and very large

14. What’s the shape of your lips?

My lips are:

A) Straight, narrow (possibly described as thin lips)
B) Straight, strong, broad (but not full)
C) Moderate, even (not very straight, but not very full)
D) Slightly full and rounded
E) Very full and very rounded

15. What best describes the flesh on your cheekbones?

Remember, this isn’t the bone itself, but the skin and muscle that covers it.

My cheeks are:

A) Flat and taut (and tend to stay tight when overweight)
B) Fairly tight or muscular, but I tend to get a bit puffy when I put on weight
C) Moderate, slightly soft
D) Soft and fleshy (gets very full with excess weight)
E) Very round and fleshy (stays round and fleshy even when thin or underweight)

Normally there is also a question about hair texture and curliness, but since hair can be manipulated so easily with curlers, straight irons, extensions, etc. I prefer to disregard this question.

Now let’s move on to the results, on the next page!

  1. Mine is confusing as well.
    Bone structure: 2C, 1B, 1D
    Flesh: 3C, 1B, 1E
    facial: 3A, 2D 1E
    face seems to be soft dramatic but body a classic? help!

    1. This definitely is a tricky set of results. Since your highest answer is in Cs, I think you’re in the classic family.

      Given that your face has more soft dramatic leaning, I think you might be a dramatic classic, though it’s difficult to tell without pictures.

      One way that might help, is to try out the clothing styles of some of the different types, and see if any of them suit you really well. I would try out a dramatic classic outfit and a soft dramatic outfit, and then go with what you feel looks best on you.

      For some outfit inspiration, here’s my dramatic classic Pinterest board:

  2. I feel like a couple of the questions were a tie for me, but overall, I got 6As, 5Bs 2Cs, 1D and 1E.
    Most As are concentrated on my bone structure and my facial features, yet I tend to be slightly more fleshy. Given my results, I think I belong to the dramatics, yet I am not fleshy enough in order to be a SD, and FN seems to be a bit shorter and not as elongated as I am.
    I am very confused. Any thoughts?

    1. Based on your answers, you don’t sound like a soft dramatic to me, but you could be a flamboyant natural.

      Flamboyant naturals are actually pretty tall and elongated, since their bone structure has both the length of dramatics, and the width of naturals, making them both tall and broad.

      Here are some FN celebrities and their heights:
      Julia Roberts – 5’8″
      Jennifer Lawrence – 5’8″
      Cameron Diaz – 5’7″
      Michelle Obama – 5’9″

      But since most of your answers for A were in your bone structure and facial features, you could also be a pure dramatic.

      The best way to figure out which one you are is to simply try out a few dramatic outfits and a few flamboyant natural outfits, and see which lines you prefer.

      For some inspiration, I have a board for every Kibbe body type on my Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.ca/cozyrebekah/

    1. Ah, yes that’s an interesting set of results. You’re definitely on the yin (soft) side of the spectrum. I’m thinking either soft natural or theatrical romantic, however I wouldn’t be able to tell without seeing a picture of you.

  3. I did the test and a lot of my answers are kind of ‘borderline’ and some questiosn straight up unanswerable.

    But this is what I got:

    Bones: 3C, 1A. The A is actually also A C because I didn’t know whether it was C or A for my legs and arms
    Flesh: 5C OR 3C and 2D (again, in between for my bust and hips)
    Face: 1A, 1E, 4C.

    Overwhelmingy C, even though there are some doubters. I could be a soft classic as I am still young (18) and also very skinny, underweight, yet still relatively curvy (hence the 2 D’s in flesh)

    1. You do sound like a member of the classic family, I’m thinking pure classic.

      It’s a common occurrence for classics to have difficulty typing themselves, since everything is so moderate that answers which lean slightly more towards the yin or yang spectrum (but are still within the realm of being C answers) can be easily misconstrued.

      Either way, you’ll look great in soft classic and pure classic lines, since they’re in the same family of body types.

      Hope this helps! 🙂

    1. Thanks for commenting about your results! I think the reason why neither soft dramatic nor theatrical romantic fit is because your results are that of a gamine.

      You have an almost equal balance between yang and yin answers, but only a couple of Cs, so I think you’d be a pure gamine. 🙂

  6. Rebekah, I’ve read a lot online and I have to say — you’ve written one of the BEST posts on Kibbe! Especially appreciate the part where you say to separate the results in 3 sections, and the accurate supporting visuals. Super helpful!

    I carefully took the test as you instructed…

    Overall bone structure: 4C
    Flesh on body: 3E 2D
    Facial: 2B 2D 2E

    Total: 2B 4C 4D 5E

    I’m a little confused and surprised with the results!
    Every single facial feature I have is purely yin (could never pass off as a man even with the right makeup), so I was expecting Romantic… however I was not expecting my bone structure to be Classic.
    I know that when I’m fit & toned, my body resembles Salma Hayek (only from the neck down) — but if I put on weight, my body resembles Marilyn Monroe, super soft arms, curves, and all. I’m 5 feet 3.

    Would love to hear what you think!

    1. I think that you might be right on the cusp of Romantic and Theatrical Romantic, so I would just go with whichever one you prefer.

      Even though you have a lot of Classic answers, it still isn’t enough to throw off your yin balance, so you’d look good in both the lines of either member of the Romantic family.

      I hope this helps!

      1. Thank you for being so helpful! That makes total sense. I have a lot of Classic type dresses in my wardrobe, and I look good in them — just never as stunning as when I’m going full TR/R!

        Unfortunately, I also like the cyberpunk/urban street aesthetic, which is generally a yang heavy style. Do you think a TR/R could ever rock such a look?

      2. For sure! You could try doing a blend between the two looks, by going with TR/R lines, but using cyberpunk/urban street materials and details.

        Or you could do cyberpunk/urban street lines and use more TR/R materials and details.

  7. It was a good test, but I have questions
    My result is theatrical romantic, but I don’t really have thin waist and I’m still a teenager, I’m also a bit overweight. Can a teenager have such feminine body type? I’m really curious about this.
    Thank you for the test 🙂

    Like

    1. I think that a teenager can definitely have a theatrical romantic body, even without a thin waist.

      The waistline is only one answer, so as long as the overall vibe of your body is theatrical romantic, then you’re a theatrical romantic.

      As a teenager, I do have to say that your body type can still change though. The body really only stops developing at around age 25, so there’s a possibility of your body type changing.

      Around a year ago I was a soft gamine, but then my bone structure changed and I’m currently a soft classic. If my bones were slightly shorter, I would also be a theatrical romantic.

      I hope this helps answer your question!

I have a very large bust and full butt, but my torso is very straight and my waist barely nips in, giving me a boyish frame. I seem to be predominantly Classic, but I have 6 yang answers and 5 yin. Am I a straight up and down Classic? A straight up and down Gamine? Or does my slight preference for yang influence things at all?

    1. Hmm, it’d be difficult to tell what you are without seeing some photographs. Even though you have a lot of classic answers, your description of yourself sounds more like a gamine.

      As a small test to figure out if you’re in the gamine or classic family, see which looks better on you: busy, animated outfits, or minimal outfits with solid colors.

      If busy and animated looks suit you, you’re a gamine.

      If minimal and simple looks suit you, you’re a classic.

    1. I’m glad you found my pictures helpful! Your results are an interesting set, but I think you might be a theatrical romantic, but still very close to being a soft classic.

      Since it’s rare for someone to have a body that falls 100% into one body type, there are occasionally situations like yours, where you have one body type (in your case TR) that’s just a couple of answers away from being a different body type (SC, in your case).

      Because you have overall more D answers (along with an A and a few B) than C answers, I think you’re theatrical romantic. But the results are very close, so you could still wear soft classic lines if you wanted to.

      Hope this helps! 😀

I’m still learning how to type men, as well as how the test translates to male physiques, so once I get a better understanding I will be doing a male version of the test, as well as sharing suggestions for men’s fashion that coordinates with the Kibbe lines.

I am narrow and small in the shoulders but not sloping and i have a very long neck and am 5’7inches am short waisted (so legs look long (yang?) and and i have long fingers (yang?) and arms (yang?) Crikey it is hard to work out! I feel i fit inbetweeny somewhere but don’t relate in dress to TR (too girly) my personality is happy and friendly sigh….. How did you all eventually work out your style? What tips can you throw my way!

    1. Thanks for commenting Christine! Your results are really interesting, since they seem to fall in line with the soft classic body type, even though you relate to the soft gamine body type.

      As for getting your personality and the lines to form a balance, that takes practice and time. Finding your own personal style that both complements your body and projects your personality requires a bit of experimentation. One tip that I can offer you is that a simple pattern, such as stripes or dots, looks fun and playful on members of the classic family. I’d also recommend looking at my soft classic Pinterest board: https://www.pinterest.ca/cozyrebekah/soft-classic-kibbe-body-types-inspiration/ for ideas of what silhouettes look good.

      I’m also currently researching how to do style consultations (which will have suggestions based on ideal lines, lifestyle, and desired aesthetics) based on the Kibbe body types, so stay tuned for news about that. 🙂

    1. Thanks for commenting Nicole! Your results seem to be right on the cusp between classic and soft classic, but I would say you’re a soft classic. The lines for both body types are really similar though, so you can get away with wearing classic outfits or soft classic outfits depending on your mood.

  20. My results are( I guess):

    On various forums they gave me different responses, some say Soft Natural, some say Romantic, some other Soft Gamine.

  21. So, I tried to do this but I’m still honestly pretty confused on my result. It’s overall 5Cs and Bs and 3As and Ds but I included a general breakdown below.

    If I have to give an overview – I have broad shoulders. I’m tall (177cm which I think is about 5’9?). My arms are long and slim but my legs are long and bulky. My hands are large but also really thin.

    My jaw is squarish and doesn’t really seem to fit any of the options given? It’s not rounded, it’s just a square. My eyes are large and almond shaped. Thin to average lips (not super thin but definitely not full).

    That’s all I could think of, really, maybe I’m missing something or am mistaken somewhat? But yeah, my results confuse me.

    Bone – 3A, 1B (1A, 2B, 3A, 4A)

    Flesh – 3C, 2D (5C, 6C/D, 7C, 8C, 9D)

    Face – 3B, 2C, 1D (10B, 11B, 12B, 13C, 14C, 15D)

  23. Hi, my results are

    Face – 3E, 2D, 1C (10E, 11C, 12D, 13E, 14D, 15E)

    It seems like I have a dramatic classic body type but also a romantic face type. I’m 5’5″ btw.. Could you please help me determine which type I am??

    1. Thanks for commenting Hana! Because your yin answers almost completely cancel out your yang answers, I think you might be pure classic, either that or a soft classic.

      The awesome thing about being in the classic family is that you can wear any other classic’s lines without looking too separate from them, so I suggest checking out my classic Pinterest board: https://www.pinterest.ca/cozyrebekah/classic-kibbe-body-types-inspiration/

      I’m also currently researching some methods of doing style consults based on the Kibbe body types, so stay tuned for news about that!

    1. Thank you for commenting Kata, you definitely have an interesting set of results.

      I think you might be a pure dramatic, since you have predominantly A answers, and the other answers seem to be scattered throughout the results (but aren’t mixed enough to be that of a flamboyant gamine).

  25. Hi Rebekah!
    I really enjoyed going through the quiz! (:
    I’m a little confused about my results. I think I’m in the classic family but I can’t narrow it down.
    Would you mind giving me a second opinion?
    I got:

    Bone structure: 1C 2C 3C 4C
    Flesh: 5C 6A 7C 8D 9D
    Facial features: 10E 11E 12D 13B 14D 15D

    Thank youuu!

  26. Hello,
    I think I am a flamboyant Gamine but I am not quite sure. I have taken the kibbe test many times and yours is the clearest on what each answer actually means. I have often mistaken myself soft gamine and soft natural because I tend to wear and feel better in clothes with softer lines and fabrics. This causes some confusion for me

    What do you think?
    Bone structure 2A. 1C, 1B
    Flesh 3A 1D 1B
    Facial Features 3D 1A 1E 1C

    Thank you for any help.

    1. Thanks for commenting Erin! Your results do seem to be that of a flamboyant gamine, however if you feel better in clothes with softer lines and fabrics, then you should wear the clothes that you feel comfortable with! Flamboyant gamines still look great wearing soft gamine and pure gamine lines, so if you want some style inspiration you can check out my soft gamine and gamine Pinterest boards (SG: https://www.pinterest.ca/cozyrebekah/soft-gamine-kibbe-body-types-inspiration/ and G: https://www.pinterest.ca/cozyrebekah/gamine-kibbe-body-types-inspiration/)

      1. No problem! I hope it helps. Remember, just because you have the results of one body type, doesn’t mean that you can’t wear the lines of another. It’s best to wear whatever you feel comfortable with. Soft natural lines could make you look quite cute or youthful, soft gamine lines can give you a slightly sharper look, and flamboyant gamine lines will look cohesive, so you can choose what you want to wear based on your mood or personality!

  27. Hello,
    Thank you for such a clear quiz. I am much more confident in my answers for yours than I have been in the past. Great illustrations.

    I am not sure of my results because of the mix of results. I have taken the test before and have had mixed results. I am often torn between soft gamine or soft natural because I feel good in the lines and flamboyant gamine because my body is mostly yang. What do you think?

    Bone structure: 3A, 1C,
    Flesh: 3A, 1B, 1D
    Facial Features: 3D, 1A, 1E, 1C

    Thank you for any help.

      I think the reason why you feel good in flamboyant gamine lines is because your results are that of a flamboyant gamine! For some style inspiration you can check out my flamboyant gamine Pinterest board: https://www.pinterest.ca/cozyrebekah/flamboyant-gamine-kibbe-body-types-inspiration/

  30. Hi Rebekah! I love what I’ve read so far, but the results have gotten progressively more confusing as I read through the descriptions, lol

    I got 7 A’s (8 if you include the hair type question, personally I like it), 5 C’s, 3 B’s. I really like most of what’s recommended for dramatics and dramatic classics…. but it stops hard at the hair and makeup. Flamboyant gamine type hair and makeup works much better for me, but the clothes do not, other than fitted silhouettes and color blocking.

    Any advice? Sadly I just don’t get any D or E answers no matter how I look at it, so FG seems like a stretch. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for commenting with your results! It’s hard to tell if you’re a dramatic or dramatic classic without seeing how your answers are distributed across your bone structure and flesh, but I’m leaning towards you being a dramatic classic based on how you feel about the fitted silhouettes and color blocking.

      My advice is that you should wear what you feel looks best on you, even if it doesn’t fit into the suggestions for your body type. 🙂
