    I think you can use 'tipo' to say like, 'tener buen tipo' - 'have a good figure'
    for 'flatter', I think 'favorecer' would work - 'ese vestido te favorece' - that dress flatters you/is flattering for you.

    Figure is simply 'figura' or 'silueta' depending on your preference and the context.

    Sí, es correcto...

    tipo is pretty generic and used in lots of ways. It can mean bloke, or type of person or figure.

    tipo extraño = strange person

    cuidar el tipo = to look after ones figure

    tipo fantástico = great body
