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.

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.

As an example, when I was first learning about the Kibbe body types, I was a soft gamine. But almost all of my A and E answers turned into C and D answers, so now I’m a soft classic.

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.

  1. Hi Rebekah,

    I’m confused about my Kibbe type. My results seem to be all over the place. Here are my results:

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

    Thanks!

  2. Hello, i got
    Bone structure: 3A 1D
    Fleshy: 3C 1D/C (breasts) 1A
    Face: 6E 1D

    I’m pretty confused as to what my type is. I am a Latin woman, I have many strokes rounded the face and some on the body, and although I am tall (5’7) and have elongated limbs I seem to be smaller in photos. My breasts are medium-sized almost small, my hips slightly prominent and my waist slightly marked (type C I believe).
    I have doubts between theatrical romantic (but I think that the bodies with many curves compared to mine), Soft Gamine (but women are very short) and Soft Classic (but women’s faceshave many angular and thin features when compared to me). Maybe I’m not one of those. Can you help me?

    I’m tall (5’6’’) and a little bit under my ideal weight. When I’m overweight, I get fat on my stomach and hips, making my light hourglass shape a little more round.

  6. Hello goddess! You are so wonderful for helping and responding to everyone! I will certainly be mentioning you in my YT video about this! Would you mind helping me with my results? I got:

    BONE STRUCTURE: 1B, 2B, 3C, 4C, 5B, 6B, 7C, 8E
    FACIAL STRUCTURE: 9C, 10C, 11C
    FLESH: 12B, 13E, 14E
    FACE: 15C, 16E, 17C

    I’m either a soft classic or dramatic classic, right? I was leaning towards soft classic because I when I gain weight I tend to look quite rounded and soft.

    Would love to hear your thoughts (and I loveeee your pinterest boards!)

  7. Hi Rebekah! I’m having a hard time figuring out my results and was wondering if you could help:

    Flesh: 5C 6A 7C 8D 9D
    Facial Features: 10C 11E 12D 13A 14D 15D

    I got an even amount of Cs and Ds, with a couple As and 1 E. If it helps, I’m of East Asian descent, so maybe that’s throwing it bit?
