i think im a cornet or a goblet, i defenitly dont have wide hips or thighs, although i would like to have theme, i would like to be a cello or or a hourglass, those kind of bodytypes are i very beautifeul.
My suggestion to anyone reading the post by “fart” is to just laugh at the pitiful soul. Idiots will be idiots, and some people enjoy stirring up trouble online because they’re too cowardly to do it in the real world.
These so-called “hideous” women are normal-looking people who are brave enough to stand in front of the camera without the usual props (photoshop, pancake makeup, nice clothing, posing, etc). They’re all wearing the same clothing (which isn’t exactly flattering for any body type) in order to outline the various shapes that women typically possess.

How hard was it to find the ugliest women in the world?
What the hell are idiots like this doing on a body shapes site? Judging by your name, you’re obviously a guy, so I’m doubting you fit into any of the 12 female body shapes described above – go troll somewhere else.

Joseph, if that is so, stick to the plastic ones you are used to and get out of here.

i’m a skittle but agree that hourglass and ceææp are the most beautiful so I hope to choose the right clothes to look like them :o)
its very difficult for me (a seventeen year old) to identify my figure type with these models. Because honestly they carry much more weight than i do :S and are alot older. Can you help me? Im very tall, have a smaller top have than bottom, medium/large thighs, long legs, medium brests, large hips and a defined waist.
i am somewhere between a skittle and a cornet. small boyish top small chested ok waist but wide narrow hips that expand to wide thighs. i’ve been pretty good about hiding the parts i don’t like but friends think i am hiding my bdy in my clothes.
I think I’m a pear, just by the looks of it. My waist is narrow, and I can tell that I’m beginning to grow curves, but they are not extremely noticable. My bum is, wow, extremely large, and I have monstrous calves that won’t slim down no matter what I try😦
i don’t really know what i am… everyone tells me i am an hourglass, but i’m very self conscience… i guess i am though. i do fit the description; i have a large chest and short waist… but that you for the help. Now i think i can finally believe my friends and family.
I agree with monica. I’m 17 too so I feel that these models don’t really apply to me. I think I’m an hourglass (31-23-31)? but I’m averse to V-necks because they make my breasts look too far apart =/ I wish I was a Vase because they’re taller! and I’m only 5’1″
Oops. Another dummy who believes that the photoshopped pics are the real ones. Wake up! BTW they’re wearing that type of clothing to give a better idea of true body shapes without masking anything. To show what different body types look like when wearing the same thing. And I’m pretty sure they even have some makeup on, just not enough to look like the plastic, doctored-up images you’re obviously used to seeing.
tankgod there are more than 3 shapes, but I still can’t place myself in any of them, though I must admitt these women are mostly middle aged or older.
I have the most confusing body shape i have to admit. see if you can figure it out:
I’m short, infact Im 157cm tall. 48 kj, so thats average wight, so my shape should be pretty obvious…not.
I’m pretty pettit, so that means I’ve got narrow shoulders, narrow hips and a tiny waist and rib-cage.
Slightly short legs, a long middle and long slender arms. I’m roughly a C cup and they stick out wider than my chest.
Though my hips are pretty narrow, narrower than my shoulders(i have to wear belts) I don’t have large thighs, but I have a decent bottom which sticks out like anything and strong calves which wont slim down no matter how much exercise I do. No matter how much a eat, my stomach never gets bigger, its always been flat. I think it all goes to my bum.
So i’m a short spoon????
Yeah, same problem here! I really thought I was a pear and then this woman’s tummy is sooo tiny haha. Then I’m like… cello? Emm i think not. Problem is all these woman are different weights so it’s hard to tell what’s the shape and what’s the extra fat
i have a huge butt, and small waist, and broad shoulders, so i dont know either. i´m more like the “chicken”, the hiphop-model form.😀 lol. just joking. but then again not beacuse of the really broad shoulders. my shoulders are like (dunnow how to measure them) 37, my bust a small 34D, waist 26, hips 38 and butt 40. all mix
I can’t identify my type of body shape. I’ll explain:
– my hips are a bit bigger than my shoulders.
– but my back is way small than my hips
– i have big boobs, wide hips, big bottom and a very tiny back and waist.
CAn you help me?
I think I am a goblet, I have the broad shoulders so that they can carry my breast which are large. My butt isn’t big,kind of flat like the typical white woman but I am a black female.i got those legs that are okay but they aren’t long because I am only 4″11″. what must I do to loose this body shape and become the shape I have always been, a hour glass.
ahhh this whole figure thing is driving me INSANE.
i really want to know what i am
my measurements are 33.5, 23.5,32.5
so my top half is smaller than my bottom half, im slim, long but somehow curvy legs,but my hips arnt huge at all, my waist.. what can i say some days it looks small some days not
im not that tall, 165cm, and breast size 32 b-c
Good blogging now a days most of fat male and female are losing their waits at a fast pace. I have observed there on free online dating sites that there are specially created category for fatty singles. If you are single and also looking for a free online dating services sites than you can try it and can ask from the other fat ppls how they loss their pounds of weight in weeks, so join free online dating site.
That’s way too vague and not at all accurate. You’re not taking into account the fact that a smaller-framed/shorter woman may have a lesser ratio because of sheer size. You’re also not considering the fact that women in the hourglass/pear categories will accumulate weight on their thighs/butt first. The hourglass will gain more evenly, but her estrogen-dominated frame still favors the most weight gain in the lower half. So an hourglass may measure higher in the hips if she’s carrying even a bit of extra weight. True pears will have several inches’ difference between upper and lower, while the hourglass’s measurements won’t be different by more than a few inches.
The 12 body types are more specific breakdowns of the 4 true body shapes: Pear types = bell, pear, skittle. Hourglass types = vase, hourglass, cello. Ruler types = cornet, brick, column. Apple types = lollipop, apple, goblet.
I’m a little confused on what my body type is. I think I’m a cello though. I have broad shoulders but I do have hips and some type of butt. I’ve been told that I am very proportionate. Can anyone help me out? Does it sound like I’m a cello?
I do believe I am a vase because the smallest part of my waist is very close to my bust and so it appears that my hips begin high up on my waist.
I have the problem of jeans/pants falling down, or not resting comfortably on my hips. I’ve been told to wear higher waisted pants.
Am I completely off? I’m desperatly searching for an explination for my fashion dilemmas.
well a year ago I found a test that explained more in detail the characteristics of the body types, unfortunately they removed it, so I only know the celllo characteristics
Cellos are like the bastard child of a pear and a hourglass
Broad shoulders, big boobs, small and short waist cellos have broad shoulders and arms can be kind of big ( pears have slender arms and long waists) cellos have big thighs and bum But slim calves (pears have heavy calves too, and hourglass tend to have shapely well proportioned legs) I hope that is of some help for some cellos out there
@Courtney : Lol, I look like a 10 yr old up top too!! arghhh..people are always thinking im under 18!..It’s alittle embarresing yet very flattering at the same time i suppose..:/
I’m a 25 yrs old female and i KNOW im DEFFINATLY a pear shape,(a funy looking one not to mention) lol anyways i’m learning to love my small chest…atleast guy’s dot stare at my boob’s …actualy they still do i think they’re wondering where they are!… hehe lol
i have no idea what body type i am. i have b sized boobs, a wider (not too wide)
ribcage, a small mid-section, love handles (that i thought was hips but its just side fat that makes me curvy) then i dont have hips but i have a bubble butt (because i am a dancer), i have very long,in-shape legs. i thought i was an hourglass
but i dont have hips, i have love handles. help me
I’m not sure if I’m an hourglass or an apple. My shoulders are same length as my hips, maybe a bit narrower. Large breast, wide hips and rouned curvy bottom. My back is very small and I’ve got a small waist too. Despite my breast measuring is not equal to the measuring of my hips, I agree more with the description of the hourglass.
i am a brazilian girl.with those thick skin on me.my bodytype isnt mentioned here.i m around 5.5″…a bi thick legs.and muscular body..i have broad shoulders..muscular arms..toned ..athletic look..what kind of clothes would suit my body?

i hope i helped
I’m pretty sure I’m a cello, but I definitely weigh less than the woman they show. 35-29-42 with either 34D or 32DD boobs, depending on the bra. They don’t look that big on my frame, but all the other descriptions of bottom-heavy shapes say “small boobs”. I think most women who are bottom heavy but not exactly tiny on top or in the middle are either cello- or skittle-shaped, and the two discerning factors are whether your waist is short (you can’t fit two palms flat between your boobs and the slimmest part of your waist – then you would be a cello, and otherwise a skittle) and whether your calves are thinner than the rest of your legs (cello) or undefined (skittle). Hope this helped!
To be honest i dont know what i am i cant compare myself to any of These because im 13 years old and havent fully developed yet though i am more developed than other girls in my year.
I am broad shoulderd and im a size 12-14 on top and a 14-16 on bottom, i have a large bust- 36 D a smaller waist than chest and hips , my hips and chest are roughly about the same width, i dont have a flat chest but its not huge my fat. collects around my hips which gives me a Masculine and untoned bum😦 please help i want to find out which one i will end up
As a Spoon Body type (sometimes called figure 8), your hips are larger than your bust and you have a defined waist. Your hips have a “shelf” appearance, you are prone to gaining weight in your tummy and have a tendency towards love-handles. While you may gain weight in your upper thighs and upper arms, your lower legs and arms are shapely and your best assets.
How to Dress a Spoon Body Shape
The key to dressing a Spoon body type is to draw attention to your upper body while deemphasizing your tummy and hips to create a more balanced appearance and create the illusion of an hourglass figure. Your legs are one of your best asset, so feel free to play with skirt lengths and show them off! To create the most curvaceous effect mix and match our suggested separates.
Hello empire waists
By: Diana on 26 February, 2012 at 10:03 pm
I have broad shoulders, small bust, small and defined waist, ample thighs and a nice butt. ( 32-25-37(at my largest)) and i’m still confused as to which section i fall under. Can someone please help me with this!
Please tell me why mens’ bodies do not get critiqued like this…everyone is different and most will not fit into one category…I’ve seen some pretty pear shaped men and how about those man boobs…it’s time for some payback ladies!!!
I dont know what i am :'[ im mix… mix with philipenes, they have the stick figure, and the other half of me is american.. my grandma had hourglass. in somedays i look like an hour glass, but then i look like a stick. ugh! >:[
I ran across this just bsing and googling things but i must say im beyond confused at these body shapes i always thought and hourglass was busty tiny waist and bootylicious which is what i consider myself though most people say im not a true hour glass because i have augmented parts but this chart shows a supposee hour glass figure but the lady is slight thicker in the mid section 0_o
Honestly By how the models look I would put me in the hourglass section but I have never considered myself that. I am a bigger girl and though I am working on my waist line through belly dance I just naturally have a slightly bigger waist. I am 49 38 46. (I am a 42 DDD). I carry my weight equally throughout my body though and I do have broader shoulders but they are square and I have beautiful collar bones. (I am a literal definition of a big boned women with a size 8.5 ring size when I am thin and size 10 to 10.5 in men’s shoes and despite the fact that I am still a bit chubby right now even when I lost weight I was still a 44 34 41). i have somewhat shapely ankles and wrists and shoulders and collar bones as I said before and slightly longer arms than I should have. My legs are a big chunky as well. Not like too bad but just a bit because as I said I carry my weight equally.
To those who are confused, I can see why! The 12 body shapes described here are actually offshoots of the 4 true body shapes, which are Pear, Hourglass, Ruler and Apple. They’re simply variations of each type that are the most commonly seen on women:
The PEARS are as follows: bell, pear, skittle.
The HOURGLASS types consist of: vase, hourglass, cello.
The RULERS: column, cornet, brick.
The APPLES: goblet, lollipop, apple.
There are certain typical characteristics that determine each type.
PEAR: narrow shoulders/back/ribcage. Big hips/bum/legs. Slender arms. Small or medium breasts. Small waist. Pears often must wear 2 different sizes from top to bottom. Most or all weight gain on lower body. Bust measurements typically several inches smaller than hips measurement.
HOURGLASS: shoulders/bust measurement within a few inches of hips/bum measurement. Waist tapered. Breasts medium to full. Shoulders typically broad. Curvy thighs, bum. Weight gain is evenly distributed or slightly favors lower body.
APPLE: torso is full. Ribcage, breasts typically full. No/slight waist definition. Small bum. Narrow shoulders and hips compared to midsection. Weight gain typically occurs in the midriff, while arms and especially legs remain proportionally slim. The “goblet” is actually a different subtype known as the inverted triangle. Unlike the other apple types, goblets have broad shoulders and gain weight in the arms as well as the torso.
RULER: like the hourglass, upper and lower measurements are within a few inches, but there is little to no waist definition or curves. Shoulders are usually broad and well-defined. Weight gain is evenly distributed.
Typically, pears are shorter and heavier in the legs, with the exception of the bell. Skittles are less-pronounced pears and lean a bit towards the hourglass type. Bells are dramatically smaller on top, typically with sloped shoulders. Pears carry the most typical traits of the pear group. Typical pear measurements would be, as an example: 33-27-40.
Hourglass types tend to have higher waists and medium-length legs. They are usually squared in the shoulders and are prone to gaining weight in the belly and thighs, although their overall weight is generally evenly-distributed. Vases are somewhat stretched-out, slender hourglass types while cellos are the opposite. Typical measurements would be, for example: 37-27-38.
Apple types carry more weight in the midsection and are normally the most “chesty” of the bunch. Note that lollipops exhibit all traits of the apple but are longer-framed. Goblets are athletic-looking with larger upper bodies and thin lower bodies. Apples usually possess medium-length or long legs and arms.
Typical measurements would be, say: 40-32-36.
Ruler types normally are straight up and down. Bricks typically are more stocky and short in the legs, while cornets and columns are typically long-limbed and flat-chested. Columns are just taller versions of cornets. Typical measurements would be something like this, for example: 34-28-34.
Ok, that was a long post but I hope it helps break things down a bit! And remember, you can be a variation of a couple of types. Most importantly is that all body shapes have good qualities that should be admired!
I have no idea what I am. It’s too hard to tell because all the bodies look totally different.
I have big boobs, big back, small shoulders, no hips, a small bum and my legs are long but not all crazy Bambi long.
WHAT ON EARTH AM I?
The new EP Pure Wet is a masterclass in experimental baselines
and echoey, breathy vocals all underpinned by varying funk and
R&B-based rhythms. I know a lot more music now than before and have changed
my tastes. I would recommend having a Mimosa out on the patio overlooking
I wish the bloggers would monitor comments on a post like this cause any time a post is about the female body some virginal teenage boy type takes it upon himself to diss women. So some kid is unloved and probably sexually frustrated I don’t wanna have to hear about it! Can you delete “Fart” ‘s mean comment,, please?

[…] 12 female body types! Which are you? Which do you want … – Oct 19, 2007 · My god what a collection of hideous female specimens. I’m guessing it’s to make whoever identifies with one of the body types feel better about themselves…. […]
Only 8 percent of women world wide are truly hour glass figures. Everyone is either pear, apple etc so people please stop lying about being hour glass. I did the trinny and susannah online calculation and I have been classified as a bell.
My God, they all look the same. Obviously, this site is authored by man haters and obsessors… who find shapes where there are none. What kind of crack cocaine must these editors / authors have been on to author this trainwreck of an analysis? Are you kidding me? These women are nondescript and who can tell what shape they are with the lovely grey “I have given up totally on life” sweatsuits? What was the budget for this article? A hundred dollars, including the model rentals? Half of them have so much sun damage to their skin they are no doubt pre cancerous. Ugly, fat, and or old. I would not put my dick in any of them.
