She’s got a nice sexy body! One of the best ones i’ve seen. Perfect 10 out of 10 ratio. Beautiful hour glass shape.

but she looks like she’s afraid her bikini bottom is going to fall off! I guess she’s too skinny for her bikini?

I love her body she’s got a really nice waist hip ratio. It’s beautiful a small defined waist then a a curvy hip and nice legs and b❆❆b could be a lil more but then again not too much more, i’d say it’s perfect.

Really slender yet toned yet not too skinny i really this her body is just so great! damn! wow! Perfection

omg ya! i have the same exact body as her, but my legs are thinner, and my hips are a bit smaller but im like her basically, i have a love hate relationship with my hips too, like its hard finding jeans cuz my legs are thin but when i zip it up its hard, but other than that it could be a plus to have hips especialy when your stomach is flat

I have the same shape its not that we have big hips its that our rib cage is small so it gives that illusion. My hips measure out to be normal while on top when i measure for like bras they never have bands small enough and also im probly a D cup so thats also annoying with a small ribcage and big b~~~~.

Hazal

I have a body very similiar to her’s! Glad to see a pear shape who is confident in her body. Unfortunately I’m not 🙁 I always try to cover by butt and thighs with long cardigans and tunics. But most of the time I wear dresses which define my waist and are wider on my butt/thigh area.

I am a guy by the way. Don’t let the anti-curve crew in the media and on this site get to you. Long skinny legs, narrower hips, flatter butts basically take the “wow factor” away from the female body.

@Evie, can’t wait to go to Brazil in 2014 for the world cup. Not only will I be watching the soccer, but also the many gorgeous curvy women that Brazil is famous for.

mel
Member

She is not overweight at all, so stop trying to cover your butt/thighs. As long as you don’t wear like skintight latex pants (which is a look I see on far too many girls at the mall), it should all be fine! Be proud of your body 🙂 My sister has a similar shape and she looks great in clothes although she might be thinner (5’7″ and 125).

@CurvesRule, when did anyone say she was unhealthy? But you can’t assume that the girls who do say that are doing that out of jealousy.

curvesrule
Guest
curvesrule

Mel, no one pointed the finger directly at her, but that is the message that a girl like Hazal will get when she reads comments that assert that thinner/slimmer/straighter = healthy. Those kinds of comments are repeated regularly here. And obviously not all of them are jealous of the attention that curvy women get, it’s just a personal preference. But you can’t tell me that those jealous haters don’t exist.

I thought she looked like Audrina ,too! But I read the post so I knew it wasn’t her. I don’t know if she’s strictly dieting to stay this thin, her upper half is skinnny.

Rebecca
Guest

I a pear too, and my upper half can be quite thin without much work. It’s my lower body that takes work. It seems that a lot of times when pear shapes get their bottom half lean and fit, their top half get a bit too slim.

deanna
Member

Yes, I have a friend who’s pear shaped and she hated having bigger thighs (even though her thighs could hardly be called big anyway) so she dieted and exercised to extremes in an attempt to slim her thighs and they stayed the exact same size whilst her upper body got even tinier and bonier. Her body looked much more balanced before she did the extreme dieting and exercise.

Mia

me too! and by the way I’ve read that she used to be 20 pounds heavier in college,so who knows what lengths she goes to in order to maintain her current size…most people’s metabolism slows down with age.

Casey

She has a beautiful figure! I am surprised by the fact that sometimes it seems like pear is used as a negative adjective. She is a pear, but I think her body looks really good. I can see how her body is a little disproportioned, but at the same time, it’s not really a flaw…at least not in her case. It’s just an objective fact.

I think her stomach is her best feature. I think flat stomachs without being super ripped look really nice on women.

Kimberly
Guest
Kimberly

Yes! Agreed! Why do some people hate pears so much? It’s beyond ridiculous. I think she looks great.

Anne
Guest
Anne

i think people hate pears because theyre used to these images of photoshopped women with no hips, and most girls are apple shaped, and they feel angry that the pear is seen as a good thing, its like a flat chested woman being angry that a busty woman is getting attention and going “whats so special about big b❆❆bs it looks nasty”

Nina
Guest
Nina
LOL, judging by your defensive attitude you must be a pear. I am a vase and I don’t like her lower body. I prefer my shape to hers. I actually have a MORE defined waist than her but smaller thighs. Her thighs just look very sloppy to me but I love her upper body. She has a decent body but I wouldn’t call it great. Legs are a really important feature to me and I don’t like hers. Actually my mother is apple shaped and my father’s side is all pear shaped and my mother would always talk about how… Read more »

I’m a vase but I do like her body. Every body type has it’s drawbacks and with some pears, they carry more fat in their legs. But their top halves tend to be very pleasing to the eye. They tend to have better WHRs than any other body type. I wish I had her toned arms and waist. Good for her!

Anne
Guest
Anne

yes i am a pear, and im not being defense im just telling you how i feel, im not saying pears are the best shape in the world, thats just opinions

snoops
Guest
snoops

most girls are apple? No way! Pear definately (at least the ones I see).

Anyway I think the reason “pear” is sometimes used negatively (not on this site though you will find) is coz so many of us can relate to the shape – we want smaller thighs and a more easy-to-tone bottom half and to fit in jeans better.

leonore

Very well said and the comment about the b❆❆bs was ridiculous.And yeah, i have small b❆❆bs and am ok with it.

What? Just because I’m small-chested and not a pear-shape doesn’t mean I get angry at busty, pear-shaped women!! Most girls are not apple shaped, most girls are rectangles! I’m a lollipop/vase, and I have no issue with pears being seen as a good thing! And just because I don’t like it as much as the lollipop, ruler, or hourglass, doesn’t mean I’m spiteful because it’s getting more attention than my own body shape.

Quite a few bodies featured on here are ruler or apple shaped.

*besides not shop haha. Just kind of gets to me….I don’t have thicker thighs, thin legs run inmy family, guess I’m not feminine! O noz!

Mia
Guest

i’m confused, who said that having thin legs is not feminine? 99% of fashion models, super models and sexpot actresses have thin legs….If anything, most people see thin legs as extremely feminine. Just because people are admiring a pear shape doesn’t mean they are putting down other shapes…not everything is black and white.

mel
Member

Well now they are … according to some posters here, thin legs aren’t feminine?

mel

No, a lot of guys like Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, or Cameron Diaz’s legs, and they all have thin legs. Scarlett Johansson is often seen as very feminine and she does not have thick legs.

@Clare – You always here about wanting long sexy legs on women from the fashion industry and those who follow it religiously.

Clare
Guest
Clare

i was just saying how long thin legs can be womanly to, just coming from a girl with a curvy shape and a lil’ meat on her thighs. I’ve even been told i have sexy legs b4, so i think lean legs and legs with a little bit of a softer look can be sexy. However not really overly toned like chicken legs and overly large thighs. Maria looks just fine though!

mel
Member

I agree with you Clare. Think about it – none of the pinups had runway thin legs, but they certainly did not have chunky thighs either. Long, definitely, and thin – to a certain extent. I’ve also heard guys (who were certainly not part of the fashion industry) say they like long, slim, sexy legs.

Clare
Guest
Clare

Mel, exactly. I do not have looooong very thin legs, but they are toned, soft, and look great with a pair of heels on. Sure they could use some toning but not too much. I would say my legs are womanly, but theres no doubt that a man might like some one with longer toner legs better, but not too tone where it appears bony. Theres a balance with every figure and you just gotta find it! This also doesnt mean that

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Perfection is subjective. I know men and women who prefer long legs however with a good amount of meat on them. I also know men and women who like long, thin legs. I know men and women who don’t care about the length but want good shape and muscle. So really there is no one ideal. People need to realise this. There may be an ideal for the fashion industry, but there are also different ideals for commercial modelling or swimsuit modelling, or for dancers or for individuals. Just be proud… Read more »

Solaxia EVERYONE KNOWS BEAUTY IS SUBJECTIVE
Please, for the love of God, stop saying it under everyone’s post. In all these comments, people are saying what they like, what they’ve heard other women like, what they’ve heard other men like, what the fashion industry likes etc etc and are discussing it. They are clearly stating variations rather than saying “this is the perfect type of leg”
Not once did anyone say that there was one type of beautiful/feminine/perfect leg universally. Your repetition is pissing me off to no end.

She’s super tiny… Like one of the smallest pears I’ve seen. Makes me wonder what she has to do to maintain that body. Ive heard about her weight loss too.

Ok

You can tell by the arms…they’re so so small.

Seems like they ARE kind of putting down other shapes, I have never read “here’s an example of a lovely rectangle shaped body!” or pretty much anything but pear. I get that many women are more pear shaped… But come on. We could all use a little love, haha.

i’m a pear and I like Cam’s body, thick ruler stomach and all, it shows power and strength. i’m also jealous of apple’s cuz they can wear mini skirts. In theory i’m jealous of larger chests, but that’s because my clothes fit funny and not a feeling of lacking femininity

Guest
sara

i agree with you. i’m kinda irritated by that actually…there are MUCH more negative comments on basically every other body shape except from hourglass and pear that i don’t get it when they say ‘pear is the most bashed onbody shape bla bla’…
i agree, we could def all use a little love ahha

Rebecca
Guest
Rebecca

I think that might be because rectangles get so much love from the fashion industry, (Have you looked a runway model recently? lol), and people like to see something different once in awhile.

mel
Member

I actually don’t think rectangles are the most common shape on the runway – most models, believe it or not, are very skinny hourglasses. The fashion industry favors the waifish shape, but you also have to have that proportion of broader hips/shoulders and smaller waist. Most of the models I see on the runway are just very flatchested, skinny hourglasses.

Anne

I see hourglasses, not rulers.

I am very involved in high fashion, so I have watched hundreds of runway shows and have seen tons of models … most of them have a defined waist with broader hips and shoulders. They are very slim overall, but still hourglassy. I know measurements aren’t 100% accurate either, but if you look at any model’s showcard it will give you measurements of 34-24-34, 33-23-33, or something very close to that, which shows that the hourglass figure is still very prized in the fashion industry.

Ashes
Guest
Ashes

I agree with you. I can’t think of that many runway models with very defined waists.

louise
Guest

ashes- monika jagaciak, edita vilkeviciute, maryna linchuk, georgina stojiljkovic, yulia kharlapanova, natasha poly, just to name a few

most models definitely aren’t rulers. when they go down the runway in tight clothes or swimwear i agree that they are very skinny flat hourglasses- tiny waists, broad shoulders usually balanced out by their hips. the desired measurements for high fashion modelling are 34-24-34 which are a stretched out thin hourglass on 5’10.

Nina
Guest
Nina

@Louise Natasha Poly DOES NOT have a defined waist

Monika and Georgina are slim pears imo.

Kimberly
Guest
Kimberly

Agreed. Most are rulers. One of the major characteristics of an hourglass is large breasts and a round butt and most models do not have that.

Casey
Guest
Casey

I think most runway models are skinny vases, not skinny rectangles, but because of their low weight, they might as well be called rectangles.

However, I’ve seen a lot of runway models with some waist definition. I don’t think true rectangles have waist definition…or at least, I’ve never thought of them in that way.

Kate1st
Guest
Kate1st

Stretched out thin hourglass = vase shape.

So technically they are neither ruler nor hourglass, but more in between.

mel
Member
I’m saying that their BASIC SHAPE is an hourglass, but that they are so extremely thin that they lose some of those traits – it’s impossible to be like 100 pounds and still have large breasts/butt. But that doesn’t mean because they are skinny they can’t be hourglasses! When you lose weight, you do not lose your basic body shape, although you may lose characteristics of it (i.e. in T&A). Many of them DO have large breasts for their frame (a B cup on a 110 pound, 5’10” figure is actually proportionally large). And while they may appear to be… Read more »

We could debate this all day but Versus stated yesterday that most models are rulers. Some may have really defined waists, but most do not. Models who are true hourglasses are worshiped for their combination of curves and thinness. Look at Candice. She is considered an hourglass/pear combo and she’s absolutely worshiped for her rare body type. Most models do not have her body type.

Nkeon
Member

Mel, some of the pics you’ve posted show some hourglasses but I think most of them show models that have had their busts highlighted and waists emphasised. Most body shapes at a very slim size will show some kind of waist definition. I think a lot of models are actually columns, which is an hourglass/ruler combo that leans more towards the ruler side. Moreover, model stats, i.e. their measurements, are often fallacies. You can tell the ones that are truely hourglasses or pears, such as Lara Stone and Candice Swanpoel.

Kimberly
Guest
Kimberly

Yeah, after looking at the pics posted, I still stand by what I said. Most models are rulers. And I completely agree with Nkeon on this one. There will always be exceptions to the rule, like Candice, but most are ruler. And I didn’t say ALL, I said most.

acually i think most of the runway girls are apples, like gisele bunchen, or goblets, cuz they have no hips and a straight down waist, im not saying all are some could be hourglass too, or even small pears

deanna
Member
From what I’ve seen on the site, all types of body shapes are presented and receive both negative and positive comments but pears do tend to receive the most comments and I think that’s why it seems they’re featured more? The site is to discuss and if a pear shape creates the most debates etc then, for popularity purposes, pears may be featured more? If it seems to you that people are favouring a couple of body types over others though then there’s no real point in complaining about it because people are going to like what they like, regardless.… Read more »

And to those of you rulers out there, I’ve always heard my friends/family/random people say that they prefer rulers over pears. In fact, this site is unique in that pears get so much appreciation, which is great, because I’ve been on many other sites that don’t provide as positive comments. I guess if you… Read more »

I have nothing against rulers, but they usually do nothing for me. I tend to like hourglasses and pears the most because of the curves, especially the whr. I’ve also heard and read that a really good whr is universally preferred over other body shape characteristics. Obviously, not every person is going to prefer that, but it’s been studied time and time again. It sounds as though you are very interested or involved with runway fashion so your are more likely to converse with people who prefer that body type over others. You will defend your preferences while others while… Read more »

That’s entirely valid, Kimberly. It has been proven that WHR is a good thing, but for some reason I find girls like Erin Heatherton, Miranda Kerr, Behati Prinsloo really feminine/attractive. And it is probably true that high fashion has influenced me a bit. I know that even if people (guys, girls, etc.) prefer curves, I would always prefer to remain less curvy (even though my body type is technically “curvy” and I would be very curvy if I gained weight) as long as my body type would allow it because design is my passion and I would always want to… Read more »

I now see where you are coming from Mel. Your comments have always suggested an intimate knowledge of the fashion industry. Forgive my ignorance, but why can’t a curvy person wear couture well?

mel
Member

I’m not saying curvy women can’t wear couture well, because they can! I’m just saying for real high fashion, runway couture (not the “couture” you see on red carpets), it takes someone relatively tall and curveless because curves tend to “distract” from the way garments fall and make them fit a different way than a tall, skinny body would. Think of a tall, skinny woman as a clotheshanger – she really allows the attention to be fully on the clothes.

I appreciate different kinds of bodies! I think Kelly Brook has a good body, although it’s not my #1 choice. But I do think some models are too thin. Just because I’m in high fashion doesn’t mean I’m oblivious – there are some times where I’m like “wow, how can she even walk the runway?” But I also tend to be a bit defensive just because fashion is truly my passion and I almost feel personally insulted when people call my favorite models anorexic! Haha unreasonable yes, but I can’t help it.

My stomach never gets that flat.ever. Even at my very thinnest it didnt look completely flat like this. Sigh. But my legs are much skinnier. Oh well, I guess it’s just about accepting your flaws and appreciating your good points …

I think her b❆❆bs are way too big to be a pear.she looks to me more like a small hourglass or a skittle.I say she’s a skittle because her breasts are of medium size and yet she has more weight in her thighs

You can still have a defined waist without having bigger thighs or hips, it’s all about your specific proportions.

Usually I don’t like this body shape, but she looks really good! Her upper half is completely flawless – perfect waist, perfect abs, perfect shoulders, perfect sized chest – and she looks amazing in that bikini. Her lower half is fine, too – not perfect, but she can get away with it because her body as a whole looks so good!

I think her Natural Pear Shape is Perfectly Fine! I think its Very Classicaly Beautiful and Elegant. I don’t see any flaws at all, She’s Elegantly Lean, Perfectly Porportioned, Flawlessly Toned!
All that Matters that Her Figure KICK A– Fantastic!!!

I don’t think most people really hate pear shapes…especially not on here.

I really don’t think most women are apples… I’ve read so much conflicting info on this,though. I’d like solid statistics or something but have yet to find it.

Z

It seems most women are more like…modified pears,perhaps. Nowhere near as flat of a belly as this but still most of the weight is in the hips/thighs/butt..

Very interesting body. She has very little muscle tone- at least judging from her arms, it looks like she is naturally slim, until you get to her thighs.
I can sorta relate (except I work out). Lean upper body, fat on the butt/thighs.
Oh, and I thought it was Audrina at first!

Agree with everything you said, Nina.

So you could be an hourglass if there’s a 10 inch difference between your bust and waist, but not hips?

Erica

From what I know hourglasses tend to require at least a 10 inch difference between bust and waist and waist and hips. I have that and combined with shoulders the same width as my hips and a definite nipped in short waist, I believe that’s a typical hourglass shape.

But mostly it’s not about measurements – it’s how someone actually looks. Pears are generally easy to identify owing to their smaller upper half in comparison to their lower. Hourglasses are very easy to identify visually – it’s the hourglass variations like vase and cello that can be a little trickier!

mel

No, it would have to be between bust, waist, and hips. Otherwise you could be an inverted triangle. That is the technical evaluation, and by that I’m an hourglass (34-23/24-35/36). But you’ll see that I do not LOOK like an hourglass, mostly because I am skinny, meaning I do not have the typical full chest (only B cups) or full thighs of the hourglass. Hence, I look like a vase/lollipop. You can look different depending on your weight. If I filled out more, I would probably look like your typical hourglass.

I found your measurements interesting because I’m nearly identical, with a 33 chest measurment, tho c cups. I look fairly curvy however, because I’m only 5’3″ and carry most of my weight in my thighs (tho not much, I wear a zero in jeans).
This just shows how people with similar vital measurements can look so different. And why you have to go on appearance more than numbers 😛

My body sounds very similar to yours. My measurements are similar to mels (34-22.5-34.5) but i’m only 5’2 and a half (possibly 5’3 haha)and i’m pretty sure i carry most weight in my thighs and butt, but it’s hard to tell coz nothing looks disproportionate as you’ve also said about yourself. I asked about my body shape and I was told skittle although I thought I may have been an hourglass. I even thought pear at one stage but I think my thighs aren’t large enough…What’s your body type? curious to know so i can compare as we are similar… Read more »

I think I’m a skittle because despite having a small waist and flat tummy I still have somewhat curvy thighs. Also when I gain weight it goes to my thighs and butt, and when I lose it it comes from my waist and butt. I still have thighs even if I’m down to 107 pounds. I heard Halle Berry and Megan Fox (in her Transformer days) are skittles as well. Thats what helped me. But at the same time I find Scarlette Johnasson and Bar Reafli have somewhat similar legs to mine. So I’m not entirely sure? I kinda wonder… Read more »

On wikipedia under female body types, it says most women are rectangular shaped, followed then by pear, apple, and hourglass. Hmm.

Isn’t 32 a little old for a belly piercing???

Kimberly

Is there an age restriction?!

deanna
Member

Well I’ve never seen another 32 year old with a belly piercing so I’ve never thought of whether there’s an ‘age restriction’ before but now that I see it, I think there is..it looks a little silly on a grown woman. I don’t like the look of body piercings and generally associate them with teen rebellion so I guess that’s why I have this view.

Kimberly

I see it everywhere and it doesn’t bother me. There are other things that bother me a lot more than belly piercings but hey…everyone is different.

Mia
Guest

I agree that it looks a little childish, BUT, as a 32 (almost 33 year old) I can tell you that neither me nor my friends ever feels our real age. We still think of ourselves as being in our early 20s for some reason…I’ve talked to my mom about this, and she claims that even at 60 she feels like she’s in her 30s (and so do most of her girlfriends)…so she probably doesn’t even think about how the world perceives her belly button ring, she just knows she likes it. I hope that makes sense!

Well us greek ladies are truly blessed clearly 😛 I’ve been searching for a bikini top that does that double string thing at the back like hers for ages but can’t find it anywhere. Does anyone know?

Alex
Guest

Are you greek too? Greek girlies tend to have nice slim curves. Her body actually looks a lot like my moms. (I have total body envy of my mother it’s so sad haha.)

Have you tried Victoria’s Secret? I’m pretty sure I saw one in the catalogue that I wanted to order last year and the styles are usually pretty similar every year.

deanna
Member

Yes I am haha. Lots of Greek girls do but almost all of my female family members are pears and haven’t been able to maintain their lovely shape as they got older. Their metabolism slowed down but their love of food didn’t haha.
I will have a look at VS now, thank you very much! Building my bikini collection now that it’s summer 😀

Southern European girls are usually pear-shaped, that is a fact of life.

I have a bikini like that, but it’s a really old one from Roxy! Everything But Water and Canyon Beachwear have a good selection, so you might be able to find something there, but it’s a tad expensive. Victoria’s Secret is far more affordable!

She looks like she has very small, narrow shoulders to me…definitely less broad than her hips.
