seems like she’s a pear like Alicia Keys, her body stores the most weight in her hips. To me she looks to be at a healthy weight and in good shape for her body type. Haven’t seen her for a while, i wonder if she’s doing this to get back in the media cos of some career plans, i remember she had few nice tunes.

I am confused when people say that pear shapes such as Ashanti store weight in their hips. I see it all in her thighs rather than hips.

annabanana
Guest

i think that is what they mean 🙂 or their “hips” could mean the largest part of their body, which is around the butt and tops of the thighs. it’s not actually the hips but sometimes i think people use the word that way.

Deborah G.
Guest
Deborah G.

Ok I see. I have high hips so maybe that’s why I see it as strange. I guess anything around the hip bones are hips 🙂

charlotte
Guest
charlotte

well some people refer to hips as the part just below the butt (where butt meets thighs) others mean the hipbone area when saying hips 🙂

JN1976
Guest
JN1976

Butt and upper thighs, hips are bones and she’s actually got some lean curves and hip bone protrusion without contrition so yeh, sorry to b sticky abt semantics (terms) but yes, while she is a pear she’s carrying all at boot and upper thigh…tho we really dint get to see much lower to hard to know for sure
Nice curves;) I remember her having such a pretty face (prob still does when not wincing for bright sun or razzi’s

hot hot hot!

kateuk

Would have been nice to see some full-length pics. Photos taken from mid-thigh up can be quite deceiving, making the person appear bigger than they truly are, especially if they are short-waisted/long leg combo. One really good example is THAT unflattering photo of Marilyn Monroe in the white bathing suit, the one people use to argue she was ‘plus size’, when in all the other photos in the same shoot she looks far slimmer!

Uxi
Guest
Uxi

I don’t think this is the case, for she’s a pear and they are showing the thinnest part of her…

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

I think it depends if the person is short or long waisted. For pear shapes with a long waist, it will be more flattering than a pear shape with a short waist. I think her waist is about average though.

Juju

YES. That ONE photo of Marilyn is always cherry-picked to convince all the size 14s of today that she was just like all of them ………….. when her waist was never bigger than 24″ at her absolute heaviest.

lc
Guest
lc

They have one of her most iconic dresses up somewhere in a museum or something, and it’s measurements are the equivalent of a modern day size 2. She was tiny. Curvy maybe, but thin for sure. Sizes were labelled differently back then, what was then called a 12-14 is today more like a 2-4, or something like that, I’ve heard.

annabanana
Guest

wasn’t she also below average height? so she looks curvier than her size would indicate. but yeah, that whole “marilyn was plus size” thing is ridiculous… yes, she was curvy, and yes, women shouldn’t feel bad about being curvy themselves if that’s their body type, so in that way she can be a positive example i guess, but turning it into an attempt to normalize being overweight is really counter-productive.

lc
Guest
lc

Yes, she was short. Curvy maybe, but one thing she was *not* was big/heavy/overweight in that sense. She was tiny. So yes, using her in that way in incorrect and counter-productive.

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

She wasn’t ‘short’. She was 5ft5. Her weight apparently fluctuated between 120lb and 140lb. The pic I’m talking about was probably her at her heaviest weight when she was probably no bigger than a modern day US size 8, but some people make out like she was a modern day size 12-14, which is rubbish.

P.S. I, too, tried to post a the pic, but it has not been published.

Faith
Guest
Faith

I know right? Its because she was a vintage 12 to 14 people don’t take into consideration vintage sizes are tiny. Her weight even went down to 115lbs at times. At 140lbs I think she had just miscarried and in the famous white swim suit everyone posts to prove she was bigger she was actually pregnant and an up shot is never flattering. I am embarassed by my own Marilyn Monroe knowledge.

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

Yeah, vintage sizes are so different to modern sizes. In the UK, the smallest size used to be an 8 or 10. Now you’ve got sizes 4 and 6, but the measurements are still the same!

disqus_e5owUDo2KZ
Guest

She was 5’5½”. Pretty short.

kateuk

Short compared to a fashion model, yeah. But in the real world, that’s average height.

P.S. Looks like all the pics finally popped lol

She’s obviously a pear and she looks to be at a healthy weight to me – strong and not thin or fat. Her shape is not my favourite, but she looks very voluptuous, yet fit!

Most people can have a waist, some of us just have to work harder. My waist is like Kate Uptons (and I have never cared about waists as long as it doesnt pout, but then i started to visit this site)but it’s time for a change now! I will go from Kate to Candice haha:p

My bum used to be tiny, but since I started taking three spin classes a week (and sometimes take the bike to work) it has become much bigger. Try that before surgery.

Deborah G.
Guest

Do you lift weights? I’ve always had a butt but lifting definitely helped lift and firm it. I personally wouldn’t get surgery! I’m sure your butt is fine!

Juju
Guest

Since I go to the gym my bum has become bigger (to my joy) but it’s still a bit flat I don’t know if you see what I mean, it’s not all round. Maybe I’m not working out the right muscle?

That’s nice!! Thank you
A kind comment always brightens up a day!

MissMarilyn
Guest
MissMarilyn

True that you can only do so much with what you’ve got but there are three different main muscles in the butt. I’m not like a booty expert but I’ve heard that working each one does a certain thing (ie one makes it rounder, one makes it more lifted, etc)… maybe look into that? I’m pretty happy with my butt currently so I haven’t researched it!

Juju
Guest
Juju

I will look it up thx! 🙂

CK

try googling David Kirsch, he’s a celebrity trainer and is best knows for “sculpting butts”, he has some exercises&tips on that even online, i think he even wrote smth about butt exercises.I don’t know if his stuff helps/works, i’m fine with my bum, i just remember hearing about him few years ago from Heidi Klum and i think Karolina Kurkova called him “master of ass” or smth, haha.

lc
Guest
lc

I don’t have much of a waist either but I seriously don’t care. What is the big deal?? You’re right, as long as it isn’t like a beer gut then it’s fine lol. I still don’t aspire to have a tiny waist, even after coming here so long. For me, it’s aaaalllll about the legs. Long and lean; and the WHR can look like whatever lol.

Emmelie
Guest
Emmelie

I’m not obsessed with waists (never wear crop tops), but I have some unnecessary padding that I would like to take away. I also think legs are more important, a nice shape and toned. I also like slim legs, but catwalk slim is a bit skinny for me. Naomi Campbell has perfect legs, and if I choose someone shorter it would be Sienna Miller.

Juju
Guest
Juju

Dunno I like as much legs as I like a waist on other people, but on me I always focuse more on my waist than on my legs. We all have a “problem” area….

Juju
Guest
Juju

I think even with exercice an apple can’t have a tiny waist à la Candice bc it’s about bone structure and you can’t change that. Candice has a tiiiny ribcage and larger hips. I guess you can get some waist below the ribcage but it will still be a slight waist, not a noticeable one. Anyway. I know it’s frivolous haha ^^

G
Guest
G

Depends on what you mean by tiny, if you’re 90 lbs your waist is going to be small now matter what your shape is. If kate upton was as skinny as candice her waist would look much better.

Emmelie
Guest
Emmelie

Anything is possible:) I’m gonna do some efforts and see if it gets smaller. And if it only gets a bit more defined I will be happy.

angela

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

Please don’t do that, Angela! Try lifting weights to build your glutes, plus add more protein to your diet. I think the cosmetic surgery options for adding volume to your bottom are not very good. Implants can easily rupture because, of course, you tend to sit on your bum. Fat grafting doesn’t tend to last, and injectable fillers can leave you disfigured. It’s just not worth it IMO.

Juju
Guest

I agree, surgery isn’t something to take lightly. :/ Anyway Angela knows better than us.

HB

For the record, I hear FAR more men criticizing the looks women than I hear women doing it. And it’s usually far meaner, because they’re insulting the women who don’t fit their narrow standards of beauty.

This is a site for body discussion. It’s not about “hate,” which is a word I think you should learn about before you throw it around so loosely.

Lol yes, you are a troll. You’re a guy who comes on a website geared toward women, to discuss issues of body shape, health, beauty, to stir up the pot. Probably in real life women find you creepy and gross, so you turn to internet trolling for attention. Actually the only one hating on women here is you. If you look at human history it’s mostly been men ‘hating’ on women for the past 200,000 years, since men are generally more violent, brutish, impulsive, and prevented women from having equal rights for most of history.

the point of this website as others stated is to discuss the women’s bodies so i’m not sure what you’re expecting. for the most part, people on this site express their opinions respectfully. if you want to see “hating” go to askmen(dot)com message board or bodybuilding forum and you’ll see some of the meanest critiques of women’s bodies all coming from men. you’re probably a woman under the guise of a man. happy trolling!

“Quit lying” is a cop out. I was ready to discuss. I rarely say anything bad about people on this site, just my opinions. I think Ashanti looks super hot here. I’m also not a “fat ugly insecure broad.” Just a woman with an opinion. Is that so terrifying?

You’re acting like there’s something wrong with it, but this is a gorgeous curvy body pictured here. Maybe you should take some time away from the gossip sites and learn some respect.

TSAC

To be perfectly honest, I agree with you- although for this particular site, you might have to define “hating.” This is definitely not representative of all female commentors, but if you look at social media (such as youtube comments) most “haters” nitpicking at a woman’s looks are indeed female. Do you think most guys would be like- “oh, I think her ankles are shaped weirdly, it distracts me from her DDs?”

This is not to say that guys don’t hate though- they do their fair share. But a lot of the picking-apart of physical appearances are done by women.

Rita
Guest
Rita

yup.. i’m a female and I actually agree with Mark! females hate not cuz of jealousy.. i don’t know.. we are complicated creatures XD like for example.. if that was Kate Upton.. or Kim Kardashian.. people would tear her down and Ashanti is supppper curvy.. many females who come 2 this website probably prefer leaner / skinner version.. so Mark probably expected lots of hate comments (not hating Ashanti herself.. but her figure) I used to like super skinny bony bodies.. if I saw this post 2 years ago i would have thought EW! FAT! OMG! GO RUN AND LOSE… Read more »

Lol the jealousy thing is so lame though. I am not jealous of Ashanti, or Kate U., or any of them. I actually think my body looks a good site better, and I honestly would never ever want to look like either of them, ever. Not that they are ugly; no I am not saying that, I am just more than perfectly happy with my own body.

Did u not see my comment when I said if you’re not hating them Im not referring to you?

lc
Guest

Right. But I don’t see why you need to refer to anyone that way. I’m pretty sure no one on this page who does not like the way Ashanti looks is simply “jealous”. That is such a simplistic way of thinking.

Rita
Guest
Rita

well.. jealousy doesn’t only have 2 b jealousy of the body.. for example Ashanti has a figure MANY men (not all) would find sexy and hot

SOME skinny women would get jealous of THAT attention.. like they would think they diet so hard and men don’t notice them

SOME women live 2 impress others.. ESPECIALLY men

at least that’s how it looks 2 me in SOME cases ;P

lc
Guest

Well, that’s DEF. not the case here with me lol. Not for a second, no offense to people who do, but I don’t really give a rat’s a-s about what men think of me.

Saw these pictures on another website- she looks amazing! On another note, I don’t really understand the need for constant competition between women in regards to their body types. I saw several comments elsewhere saying things such as “This is what real women look like.” and “This is what men find sexy, not stick insects.” For starters, it irks me how a woman’s attractiveness is commonly measured according to the male ‘yardstick’- there’s more to life than what men find ‘hot’. Having said that, as a female I think Ashanti’s hot, I think Beyonce’s ‘hot’, but so are, for example… Read more »

I had a friend one time who said “oh, I thought you would be all fat underneath but you’re really tone) Sometimes I hate being shape like this bc there are super cute stuff that I’d love to where but I can’t.

Her body shape is just like mine. Our thighs are the biggest part of our body especially when we put on weight but we don’t have a wide hip bone or a big curve in the butt area. It looks to me like she basically achieved her body by eating a lot of healthy fats and working out because in the early 2000’s when she first came out she was not this thick. She looks good.
