Now, another important aspect of knowing about your body is the vertical body shape, i.e. the balance of your torso vs your legs. In other words, do you have short torso? Or long torso?
In general, if you have short torso, it implies your legs are relatively long. Of course the concept of long legs here is relative because we are talking about it in the context of petite fashion. After all, petite women are under 5’4”, so our definition of long legs here is certainly different than someone who is 5’7”.
Having a short torso typically means that you also have a short waist. That means the distance from your shoulders to your natural waist is shorter than those with average waist. In other words, your waistline sits higher on the body.
