How to Determine Your Kibbe Body Type

Results

Romantics:

If you got mostly E answers, you’re a pure romantic (R). Your bone structure, flesh, and facial features are all soft, small, rounded, and are on the yin side of the spectrum.

If you got mostly D answers, you’re a theatrical romantic (TR). Your bone structure, flesh, and facial features aren’t as soft and rounded as a pure romantic’s, but you’re still on the yin side of the spectrum.

If most of your answers are a E or D, with a few A answers, then you are theatrical romantic (TR). Your bone structure, flesh, and facial features are mostly soft and rounded (yin), but you have a few yang features, probably in your bone structure or facial features.

Dramatics:

If you got mostly A answers, you’re a pure dramatic (D). Your bone structure, flesh, and facial features, are long, lean, sharp, and are on the yang side of the spectrum.

If you got mostly A answers, with a few E or D answers, then you are soft dramatic (SD). Your bone structure, and most of your flesh or facial features are yang dominant, but you have some softer yin in your flesh or facial features.

Classics:

If you got mostly C answers, then you’re a pure classic (C). Your bone structure, flesh, and facial features are neither sharp nor rounded, neither short nor long. You’re in the middle of the spectrum between yin and yang.

If most of your answers were C, with a few A or B answers, then you are dramatic classic (DC). Your flesh and facial features are probably C dominant, but you have some yang in your bone structure.

If you got mostly C answers, with a few D or E answers, then you are soft classic (SC). Your bone structure is probably C dominant, but you have a bit of yin in your flesh and facial features.

Naturals:

If you got mostly B answers, then you’re a pure natural (N). Your bone structure, flesh, and facial features are elongated, broad, and blunt. Your body is yang-dominant, but not as much as a dramatic’s.

If you got mostly B answers, with some A answers, then you are flamboyant natural (FN). Your flesh and facial features are probably broad and blunt, tending towards looking muscular, but your bone structure is long and lean.

If most of your answers were B, with some D or E answers, then you are soft natural (SN). Your flesh and facial features tend towards the yin side of the spectrum, but your bone structure is broad, blunt, and elongated.

Gamines:

If you got an even mixture of A/B answers and D/E answers, in a seemingly random order, you are a gamine (G). You can’t really pinpoint whether your overall bone structure, flesh, and facial features are yin or yang, since each feature is a different answer.

If you got a combination of A/B answers and D/E answers, with slightly more A or B answers, then you are a flamboyant gamine (FG). Your individual features are either yin or yang features, but in general you have a bit more angularity to your body.

If you got a combination of A/B answers and D/E answers, with slightly more D or E answers, then you are a soft gamine (SG). Your individual features fall on either side of the yin or yang spectrum, but in general you have a bit more softness or roundness to your body, probably in your flesh.

Confusion?

If you’re confused about your body type, then let me know what your answers were for each category: bone structure, flesh, and facial features. I may be able to help you out, but if not, try looking at my Overview of the Kibbe Body Types post and compare yourself to the types to see what matches.

I also do consultations, where I determine your body type for you.

Don’t be worried if you’re confused about your body type though. Most people need to take the test a few times in order to be objective about their features, and it can take some time to fully understand the Kibbe body types. It took me a few weeks of studying to understand the basics, and almost a year later, I’m still figuring out new things!

It’s also important to keep in mind that just one or two out-of-place answers won’t be enough to change your type.

If there is a lot of confusion about the body types, I will make another post about how to narrow things down, and what might be throwing you off, so do let me know if you can’t figure things out.

Can you change your body type?

In my opinion, yes!

If you’re below the age of around 25, your bone structure, flesh, facial features are still developing, so those can still change.

Even if you’re above the age of 25, your flesh can still change, as with enough exercise, you can develop enough muscle to change flesh types (in my opinion). For example, you can gain enough muscle on your hips to change from yang to yin.

Apart from that, surgery that can change your appearance can also change your Kibbe body type, if you do enough modifications. For example, Kim Kardashian used to have the appearance of a soft natural, but now she has the appearance of a theatrical romantic.

So what now?

Now that you know what your body type is, you can learn what clothes, makeup, and accessories look best on you! There are tons of resources on YouTube and Pinterest, and I’ll also be making blog posts about different looks for the body types, so stick around.

A good place to start learning about what will look best on you is my signature looks for the body types post, which will give you a rundown on the silhouettes, fabrics, colors, and patterns that will look good on you.

Now that you know your body type, you can also help me out by taking my body types poll. It only takes a minute, and it helps me to understand my audience and body type trends.

And if you found this post helpful, please leave a like, or share it with someone else who’d find it helpful too. Thank you, and I hope that I’ll be seeing you around!

  1. Please help! My sister has me stuck on Kibbe now, so I’m going insane.
    I feel too soft for an (FN), and the recommended lines make me look tent-ish and overwhelmed. I’m pretty sure I’m not yang enough in my flesh to be a (D).
    (SD) lines look good on me.
    Anyway, sorry, ranting. Any and all input is so welcome, each of the IDs are beautiful in their own ways!

    BODY BONES
    1A. (Very tall. People sometimes guess I’m even taller, and never think I’m significantly shorter than I am.)
    2B. (Broad: ‘Sharper than blunt’ so to speak, but not an A answer either.)
    3A.
    4A. (My palms may lean a tiny bit toward B)

    BODY FLESH
    5B. (Not dry, really, but broad shouldered with narrow hips. (See Waistline)
    6E. (I get shoulder pain if my bust isn’t supported properly.)
    7E. (I’m fleshy for sure, but I do go in visibly and softly at the middle.)
    8B.
    9D.

    FACE BONES
    10B. (But the flesh over it is soft, so it can appear more yin than it is.)
    11C.
    12A. (Too high and prominent for a B answer, but not as sharp as many Dramatics have.)

    FACE FLESH
    13D.
    14A.
    15B. (I’d say it’s soft yang, but as soon as I gain weight they go D/E quickly!)

    Blessings!

    1. Hey Rebekah!

      I’m so confused with my results, could you help me out a bit?

      Bone structure:
      1- C
      2-D
      3-D
      4-D

      I’m actually very short, 150 cm. Everyone can say objectively that I’m short and small in stature, however most are usually a bit surprised to hear that I’m THAT short. Everyone estimates me as a couple of inches taller but undeniably short nevertheless. So I don’t know if I should put E in the first one.

      Flesh on the body:
      1-C
      2-B
      3-C
      4-A
      5-D

      Facial features:
      1-C
      2-E
      3-B
      4-A
      5-C
      6-E

      I gain weight first and mostly in my abdomen, waist is still slightly defined, but I get chubbier around the lower abdomen. It is followed by face, a double chin and chubbier cheeks. Then thighs and bustline. Hips-never. When I work out, my torso takes an upper triangular shape without the excess fat in the middle. But I never get a super slim waist. Slightly defined but never too prominent.

      Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks a ton<3

  8. Rebekah,

    Like

    1. Thanks for commenting! Based on your results, I’d say that you’re a soft natural.

      The difference between gamines and other body types is that gamines tend to have a mixture across all the categories, whereas soft naturals tend to have mostly Bs in their bone structure, with some D or E answers in their flesh or facial features. I hope that makes sense, but if not I’m happy to go into more detail to clarify things!

  9. Hello there, I love your website 🙂 It is probably far too late to get a reply but here goes!! I find the Kibbe system both very interesting and extremely confusing, mostly because of the height restrictions. My answers are:
    1. A
    2. B
    3. B
    4. B
    5. D
    6. D
    7. E
    8. D

    10. E
    11. B
    12. B
    13. A
    14. D
    15. D

    As you can see B is the most popular answer but only by 1, and I seem a completely even split between yang and yin features overall. I am struggling to fit my answers to your blog post! Also, I am 5′ 8″ (172cm), and I keep reading that can only make me either a Dramatic type or a pure Natural – but I don’t feel like either of those options fit! I really don’t have angular, straight lines and my only A answers are how tall I look and my eyes. Which leaves pure Natural – but how can I be, having so much yin? Can I be a tall Soft Natural?

    Facebone: E-C-C

    My limbs are a definet D length, my head is on the bigger side but I have board but slopped shoulders. I do get muscular very easily I gain weight evenly everywhere. On pictures Im way shorter than in reality. On blind dates I got the WTF looks and alwasy got the “you are way taller than I thought” comment. My shape is more of an inverted triangle. My waist is the first to dissappear as my hips are high but narrow but when I gain more weight I got a bit of a waist again. 😃 my face is very symetrical and there is no sharpnes on it anywhere. Ovals and rouds everywhere. Personality whise I would dress dramatic but its really not working with me. 😂 I know as a fact, that flirry skirts are my thing. The formhugging normal minis are not the best. Please tell me what do you think.

    Would this make me either a DC or SN??

    I’m 5’7”, pretty flat chested, have a waist, and have always held most of my weight on my thighs & hips (which is increasing even more now). I have only ever worn casual clothes and always feel uncomfortable in more formal or fitted clothing (I’ve even missed some special events as I wouldn’t dress up!) So i certainly don’t feel ‘classic’. I’m comfortable in jeans and t shirts, or wide leg pants, baggy tops etc. My personal style is definitely toward bohemian. I feel as though nothing of this matches……

  19. Hi Rebekah, thanks for giving some visual aids in the quiz (it’s helpful to have it in black and white as I find that less distracting). I’ve been trying to figure my type out for months now but I seem to always come to the same conclusion that my face and my body really don’t match. I’m 5’6 so the height restrictions don’t help much apart from potentially excluding gamine. The best approximate match in celebrities that I have found is maybe Lucy Liu. I’d be really grateful for your opinion! x

    My results:
    Bone structure: 1C 2B 3C 4C (but possibly E as my hands and feet are moderate but wide)

I’d say that you’re a Dramatic Classic, but it’s also possible that you’re more of a Soft Dramatic.
