Writer: ShaKera Ferguson | When you’re looking for fashion ideas and tips, you always encounter articles or questions about your body type. You all know what I am talking about, right? The little picture chart asking if you are a banana, pear or an apple?

An apple figure is someone who in fuller in the tummy with a normal to moderate size chest. Other characteristics of an apple figure is rounded shoulders and normally a flatter bottom.ShaKera Ferguson "Fruit Salad Anyone" On the Plus SideMy body is categorized with all of the above but there are some major components missing. Ladies, I belong in the bowl all to myself. I will not be labeled, classified, or characterized based on these body chart figures. I will create my own lane that is meant for me and ladies like myself. We are not just apples, pears, or bananas we are so much more.

I would like to introduce you to the “Fruit Salad” figure. The Fruit Salad Figure is the ladies that do not belong to just one category but has a combination of different body characteristics. Yes, I have a fuller tummy, rounded shoulders but guess what? I also have some “Melons” (Large Breast) to throw in the bowl along with some “strawberries” (A hump as I call my bottom). So now we have a fruit salad. I know that some do not like to be referred to as a fruit or food but it is all in context. So naturally when you have a combination of fruits all together, we would call it a fruit salad.ShaKera Ferguson "Fruit Salad Anyone" On the Plus SideCreating any fruit salad could be a task as you have to cut up all the fruits, mix together, and then added the finishing touches. A fruit salad figure is no different. There may be some frustrations or challenges when shopping for a fruit salad figure although the greatest reward is knowing that you are fashionable and maybe even trendy in the end. One frustration that may occur is the sizing of clothes, Ladies do not worry about the size on tag focus on the fit. Now take the must have pieces and mix them together. Don’t worry about getting your hands messy. Fashion is fun and subjective. Now that you have mixed everything up add a little sugar for an additional kick. Accessories can allows add that pop of color, class, or fun to any look.

ShaKera Ferguson "Fruit Salad Anyone" On the Plus SideSo are you with me ladies? Are you ready to defy the odds and create your own box or categories? Are you ready to reinvent the wheel and create categorizes that do not exist? Society has us thinking that we are only categorized by what they deem acceptable. It is truly ok to not belong.
