Body Type

(En español: Tipo de cuerpo)

Say: bah-dee type

Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and that's why we have different body types. Body types are just different kinds of bodies. Some people have short waists, others have small shoulders; maybe you're short, or maybe you're skinny. Whatever your body type is, take good care of your amazing body!
