The V-taper is one of the most desirable illusions that bodybuilders want to present while on stage.
Having the V-taper illusion will consist of the waist appearing very narrow and the shoulders appearing as wide as possible. The entire upper body will have a ‘V’ shape to it. A convincing V-taper appearance will make the physique look more athletic, this look will also make the chest and thighs appear to be more muscular. The V-taper look is very hard to achieve, in order to get it bodybuilders work to make sure their waistline stays small, but also that it still looks muscular on the bodybuilding stage.
