Apparently I'm a skittle. I have a big bust, a small waist and big hips with fat legs. It's a nightmare shopping for pants. They're normally at least 4 inches too big on the waist to fit my big legs! Hate it, hate it, hate it!.

I wish I knew of a site where you could type in your numbers and find out. I think I'm a pear or hourglass- my measurements:

bust-43
waist-34
hips-44

anyone know? I've always considered myself a pear...

Default body types

Hi NessaSonic,

You are an pear and an hourglass, and most likely a mesomorph.

There are various classifications on body typing.

First, there is the standard endomorph (rounder and soft, mass in the abdominal area), ectomorph (delicate and lean, kind of like a ruler shape), and mesomorph (athletic and hourglass). This classification is mainly used for purposes dealing with muscle building. see: Body Type Information - Ectomorph, Mesomorph, Endomorph, also Body Type | Ectomorph, Mesomorph, Endomorph, and http://liftforlife.com/content/bodyb...orph-endomorph

Second, there is the more disease/medical classification, depending upon hip-to-waist ratio. This one only deals with apple (over a .8 ratio) or pear type (under .8). see: The Most Accurate Waist to Hip Ratio Calculator

Third, there is the more general shaping classification of your body, the cone(aka triangle, or apple)/ruler/spoon(aka pear)/hourglass. This typing could also be seen as an updated version of the first group. see: Body Shape Calculator | Ruler, Hourglass, Spoon, Cone Shape, or Four Body Shapes: Hourglass, Ruler, Spoon, Cone



Hope this helps.

I think I am a Pear. Starting weight 171 7/16/10.
7/30/10 weight 166.

Small shoulders, short waisted, hippie. 5'2 so probably should weight 110-130 range. At my age (68) I will take 140 and be happy.

I think underneath this I'm an hour glass... I say that because I'm fairly proportional just my hips are a little larger, add to that a long stomach, I'm thankful it doesn't stick out.

But my weight is weird. At 5'3" and 250lbs even my doctor doesn't know how I am about a women's 18in pants and 14 in shirts. he just blames it on ethnicity.
