    I've always considered myself to have a apple body shape. However, I went shopping yesterday and had to have my measurements done for some clothes I ordered.
    So,the lady who measured me was saying how I have a very boyish figure! I laughed it off and then a few other ladies came over and said the same thing. They were so annoying
    I hate being an apple shape but boyish is even worse! So, I was wondering if there's a site where I can find out what body shape I am? I'm really curious as to what shape I am now.

    Okay, just look at bust, waist and hips.

    29-23-32. If you google measurements similar to yours you get an idea of what other people's body shapes are with the same measurements.

    This woman is apparently 30-23-32:

    Unless you're carrying a lot of fat on your stomach I wouldn't think you'd be apple shaped from your measurements.

    Are you quite short?

    Your waist to hip ratio is about 0.72 which is quite feminine, but your actual measurement are tiny.

    So what is my body shape? I've always considered myself to have a apple body shape. Is there any site that will tell me what shape I am?

    I thought apples tended to have biggish boobs and tummies?
    Your waist and chest measurements are both tiny.
    Boyish isn't so bad, google celebrities with boyish figures to see.

    Oh yes, I am very short - 5Ft 2In. I'm sorry but could you explain what the waist to hip ratio means - or where I can find out more info on it?
    I mean, I can see I have curves. They're quite big in fact but according to others I have a 12 year old boys figure

    This but it's not very good :p:

    There's no exact thing to say what you are, but I'd say cello shaped? You go in at the waist, your hips are slightly larger than your bust.



    :yep:

    Were they big matronly looking women?
    If so I wouldn't take their opinions too seriously.
    By the sound of it you are just slim with small breasts thats all.
    It is a models figure
    Waist to hip ratio is your waist measurement divided by your waist, and supposedly close to 0.7 is ideal. The lower the number, the more "curvy" your waist/hip area is.

    I think it's quite nice really. A LOT better than apple, that's for sure But whatever. And I'm not saying your hips are too big or whatever

    You're definately not apple or boyish... you're a pear, or if you want to be specific probably a vase.
