I thought I was a pear and while my hips are larger now than my breasts, even after children, I'm still an hourglass.

I'm okay with that tho ;)

I can't decide. Maybe a skittle. Maybe and hourglass.

Hmmm... I think I'd keep my body. It's gotten me through a lot, and I don't feel like there is one particular thing that makes me feel crazy.

I'm a hourglass all the way. :)
A bit thicker around the middle now due to stress but I'm hoping that will change.
Right now I'm at 128-105-126 cm, I used to have 30 cm difference between my waist and boobs/hips and that's what I'm aiming back to.

Maybe I'm mix of pear and hourglass, hips about 10" more than my waist and breast quite "generous", haha

I was an hour glass before my baby (now 3) was born. I would never gain stomach weight just chest, hips, and butt. trying to get back there. but my real body shape issue is a deeply arched back.

Honestly Id rather be the ideal hour glass and I think that looks best when your thin, Im an apple shape and I dont like it some days but Its very easy to hide my stomach (mines big LOL) with a wrap top or even a over coat or over shirt of some sort. I wear dark colors on top and light at the bottom. I think it looks great :) Ive always tried to find ways to change my body shape but I dont want to any more because this is who I am!!!

PS my legs look fantastic and im going to show them off this summer (hopefully with a smaller tummy too hehe)

Brittany, I'm TOTALLY in your boat! Modified hourglass all the way... I'm Cuban, and many of my Latina, Italian, and African-American friends are as well!

Heritage has a lot to do with it, but it's up to us to make the best of it!

I am what is called an "athletic Hourglass".

This type has the traditional and required equal measurements for hips and chest, but the core is thicker and becomes "defined/cut" than traditional hourglasses. My core is thicker a 9 inch difference instead of 12 inches, but I get a 6-pack in a size 8. It's like having the core of Venus Williams connected to the hourglass frame. Makes for a very powerful and VERY strong physique. I guess that's why I excelled at contact sports and do extremely well lifting weights and traditional body building.

Would I change? I don't think so. It's a pain shopping for clothes bc the majority of brands and retailers fit for Pears as they are about 60-70% of the female population.

i always thought i was a pear with off shoulders.. emoticon now i know i am a cello. It is good to finally put that to rest. I am content with my body shape.... but if i were to swap, i would take the pear. I'd be happier with narrower shoulders...

I can never seem to match myself to these things! I'm skinny from the waist up (even a little too skinny on my back, my ribs show when I stretch) but everything below the navel is kind of out of proportion. Big hips, belly and thighs! Luckily my waist is small so I look curvy instead of like a brick.

I'm either a Skittle or Cello but I think Skittle because of my long torso. I don't mind my shape except that I keep my weight in my thighs and legs! :P

Let's celebrate all different body types here!

I love these two articles on different body shapes! They remind me that there's more than just 'figure 8' or 'string bean' types out there! And *every* body shape is beautiful in it's own way!

ens-body-types--you.html

So I'm curious -

What's your body type?
AND
If you wanted to switch body shapes, which type would you choose? Or, which other type do you admire?

I'll go first. I'm a Cornet! I don't mind this.
AND If I could switch body types, I would love to be a pear! I find that when I get dressed up, I try to accentuate my proportions (for example, show off waist and hips) so that I have more "pear-like" qualities.
