As many share their Kibbe test results on TikTok, here is everything you need to know about the test and how you can take the Kibbe body type test yourself.
What result could I get from the Kibbe body type test?
Overall, there are 13 style types based on physical characteristics but these are grouped into five different style families which are Dramatics, Naturals, Classics, Romantics and Gamines.
According to Kibbe's theory, the result is determined by the balance of your yang and yin features. Those with more yin are said to have a softer curvier appearance while people who have more yang tend to be sharper and angular.
How do I take the Kibbe test?
Those wanting to take the Kibbe test will need to take a full-length photo of themselves in swimwear or underwear at chest height - it cannot be a selfie so perhaps get a friend to take it for you or take the snap using a self-timer.
Then get a pen and paper to record your answers.
A face photo is also required, where you have a natural expression (though a few can be smiley), and these also should not be selfies in order to get a clear picture.
What are the questions like on the Kibbe test?
The 15 questions are multiple-choice and should be answered based on the photos you have just taken for an accurate result, here are a couple of example questions to expect:
1. How long is your vertical line?
b) Moderately long
2. What is the shape of your shoulders?
a) Narrow, Sharp
b) Blunt, Broad
d) Sloped, tapered
e) Sloped, rounded
When noting down your answers, they should read like this: "1A, 2D...," for example.
What will the results show?
Each lettered answer reflects a particular style family so whichever lettered answer you select the most is your Kibbe style type, according to The Concept Wardrobe, and those are:
Mostly As are dramatic,
Mostly B's are natural,
Mostly C's are classic,
Mostly D's or E's are romantic,
A mixture of A/B's and D/E's are gamine.
