Versus, would you say she’s an inverted triangle/cornet?

Wow, that’s a great body. Better than Gwnyeth’s IMO ๐Ÿ™‚

Haha this is what I was thinking “yeap you can be 40 and look better than Partlow at the previous post” ๐Ÿ™‚

Lovisa

yeah, she has more curves than gwynnie ๐Ÿ™‚

I think so too – Gwyneth is not so shapely.

kell
Guest

Gwyneth Can’t help that she’s not shapely, but yes I think Padma looks better. She looks awesome! what a tiny waist she has. and at 40?!

Halle
Guest
Halle

I don’t think that just because Gwyneth is not as shapely as Padma that her body is any less nice. They just have different body types, and are both incredibly fit. And, like kell said, Gwyneth can’t really help that she’s not as shapely.

Emmy

Yes, but we were just kidding about how gorgeous these 40 year old women are. Don’t take the comparison so seriously.
People who take light matters seriously, sound ridiculous.

mel

I like Gwynnie’s better ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks younger imo.

Evey

padma looks sexier/hotter. hot damn!

mel

Maybe, but I value athleticism a lot, and Gwynnie looks like she could do some serious ballet, tennis, pilates, and long-distance running ๐Ÿ™‚

She’s 40 and gave birth a year ago? All I can say is OH MY GOD! I want to look like that too, post-birth and at 40 years old!

ginger

Jealous!! I’m 19 and I believe I’m heavier than her!! ๐Ÿ™ Versus I’m curious, I don’t know which are the types of bodies there are for women.. Every day I find out about a new one.. (cornet, column, inverted triangle…??) it depends on so many factors… I’d like to know which shape I am because long ago some one told me I was an hourglass.. but know I’m not sure… these are my measurements (metric system): breasts: 93 cm waist: 71cm hips: 101’5cm thigh: 59cm I’m 167cm tall and weight around 67kilos I’m very fit as I train really hard..… Read more »

Hey girl, 23-24% body fat is really good, especially for the weight….shows you have a good amount of muscle on ya : )

ginger
Guest

You think? i mean, my trainer told me that for a woman I’m in a pretty good range.. But for some one who works out every day and is supposed to have a fast metabolism, I have a lot of fat on my body. I’m a mesomorph, which means I gain both muscle and fat.. Yet, even tho I work out and eat really healthy.. I don’t drop weight.. And I don’t understand why..

paulette
Member
paulette

Do you do mainly cardio or weights too? If you do plenty of cardio and SMALL weights (as in, more repetitions and less weight) it may help you lose the “fat” (I am quoting you, cause I agree with Kate you are totally HEALTHY range) Also, from my experience…I am older than you, and when I reach 20, my metabolism was a bit out of control (it also happened to many of my friends). Somehow, when I was older (like 25) it settled. I think sometimes at certain specific ages metabolisms go a bit crazy for a while, but donร‚ยดt… Read more »

Your body fat percentage does sound really healthy. Just make sure you calculate it based on body measurements or skinfold testing and not just those height/weight calulators. I have some muslce so a height/weight based calulation is a whole 2% higher than skinfold testing for me. I’m assuming you did use a correct method, but just checking.

You sound like a skittle to me too. Celebrity examples are Halle Berry and Megan fox (at a higher weight).

You sound very pretty and healthy to me ๐Ÿ˜€

Ginger
Guest
Ginger

Yeah, I run, swim, and do tonification exercises but with little weight and more repetititons.. And, I truly believe in what you say. I knoe many cases in which a friend was always changing when she was in her early 20’s and then when she was 25 – 26 she settled down and even dropped weight for no reason.. I hope it happens to me.. Because I really hate being so “big”.. I feel like a man!! ๐Ÿ™

giulia
Guest

you can eat healthy but also a bit too much of high glycemic foods or too many calories(lord knows i do)

but it can be many things!like water retention, thyroid, hormonal issues, if you use birthcontrol, other medication..

also try to measure inches, are your clothes getting wider? better indicator than weight!

I feel you

kell
Guest

have you reevaluated your diet? are you eating healthy, but huge portions? if you’re eating protein bars, drop them, if you are drinking soda, drop it. For me, I have maintained my weight because of my every day foods I eat. I cook fresh food everday day, lots of veggies, and only drink water. I still treat myself to treats (ice cream, beer, wine, foods cooked with lots of butter ๐Ÿ™‚ ), I just don’t eat or them every day.

mel
Member

I have 12-13% body fat, and now you’ve got me thinking that’s really unhealthy!

Ivory
Member

We’re told we have to be at leat 15% body fat, but there are exceptions to every rule. If you’re healthy, eating enough (not hungry) and have a regular period and don’t show any of the symtomps related to having too little body fat, you probably are at a healthy weight for your body.

Ivory
Member

Though I had one friend who was 100 pounds at 5’9″ who had always been skinny (she got tons of excercise) but was found to be a risk for a heart attack. She has since than gained 30 pounds.

mel
Member

OK, thanks, I was getting a little worried! And I did the height/weight stats test (but it was pretty complex for that – it required neck measurements and everything) so maybe it isn’t accurate. I don’t think I’m in any danger of dying at least!

Bri
Guest
Bri

haha Mel, you sound like you have an awesome body, from reading comments on here. I don’t think you have anything to worry about. Plus I have always heard (growing up as an athlete) that it is fine and normal for athletic girls to have body fat anywhere from 12-14%.

mel
Member

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ And I am an athlete so I hope that’s normal!

Ginger
Guest
Ginger

@ Ivory: Thanks!! well I which I was like Halle!! She’s so fit and slim and she’s given birth to a baby!! It’s almost crazy!!
And yeah, I had a nutritionist measure my body fat % with ultrasound, and it’s pretty accurate.. It even tells if you have toned muscle mass or if it’s got fat in between.. It’s really good..

Ivory
Member

You’re welcome ๐Ÿ™‚
I hadn’t heard of that method before but it sounds pretty cool ๐Ÿ˜› (and accurate).
Halle is one of my body role models too.

Amazing body!

Ok first Gwyneth and now this…. damn you Versus!! hahahahaha just kidding, very inspiring this ladys, specially Padma (because I look more like her than like Gwyneth =P) that’s exactly the kind of body that I would like to have at her age.

Seriously, my dream body.

Brittany

She looks much better in a bikini than I thought she would…could she be considered a pear at all since her bottom half is bigger than her top half? And I dunno if she quite looks as good as Gwenyth (which I hate saying, because G is soooo annoying)…but Gwenyth has it going on in that bikini pic. She’s much more toned.

kate1st
Guest
kate1st

Gwynth is skinnier, but not sure that she’s is any more ‘toned’.

mel
Member

They could have an equal amount of muscle, but Padma has a small layer of fat over it (she’s not fat at all, it just gives her a little more “softness”) whereas Gwynnie doesn’t, so her muscles show more.

kell
Guest
kell

I saw the pictures of the different angles of Gwyneth on the beach, and she is too muscular in the stomach to me. I love the toned, but not muscular look Padma has going on!

anon

Also, she was filming top chef all stars not too long ago! Eating all this yummy food. I get that the judges only take bites, but with so many contestants and challenges I imagine those bites can add up no?! Anyway she looks fab!!!!

MiMi
Guest
MiMi

I use to think that too. BUT you also have to think about the portion size. All those fancy shmancy dishes are pretty tiny(well they are probably the portion us Americans should be eating lol)..there like a fat chicks snack size!
Plus im pretty sure she is not eating all those dishes and NOT exercising… By the look of her arms & abs she definitely hits the gym lol!

Padma pretty much proves that you can eat yummy foods & still be fit!

kell
Guest
kell

She said she gains 10 pounds when she films Top Chef. Her body looks completely different from 10 months ago when she was on Top Chef and her breasts were swollen and so was her belly.

anon
Guest
anon

the ten pounds makes sense because she definitely looks a little bigger on the show…i’ve been watching them on bravo and am quite addicted! I think they were filming around august and sept because they had a US open episode, but she looks great either way even with a few extra lbs…I wish my belly could get that flat, while or a little after eating all that goodness! Last week’s episode was a cookie challenge lol

This is probably the hottest body I’ve seen here.
Slim, just the right muscle tone and amazing proportions. Jealous of the latter…no exercise could ever create those proportions on my body grrr.

She has a long leg to height ratio.

Great body!

Eliza B

Feminine balance, proportion, curves, excellent fat to muscle ratio and tone. Long and lean, yet curvy and soft. Now this is a BODY. Gwenyth looks great but it’s more from taking care of herself and being in really good shape, rather than having a world class natural build.

Stephers

She’s 40 and she looks like this?! There is a God. She is BEAUTIFUL!

She must either have amazing genes or works extremely hard, either way I’m jealous!

She is toned well, her body is almost as nice as Cameron Diaz’s.

She actually looks better than me, I’m 16… #fml :’]

I’m jealous… I have now 16 years to exercise and stop eating junk food, so I’d look like that when im 40

Yayyy! I love posts like this. I hate it when people say how after 25 you are supposed to start looking all saggy and old…tell you what, I look better now at 31 than I did at 20. If you work out all your life and eat healthy, you can reach 30 looking better than a 20 year-old. And I meant work out and eat healthy, not going on crazy diets and spending 4 hours a day in the gym. Balance is the key! @Versus, I was always very curious about what body type I am, just donร‚ยดt seem to… Read more »

I’d guess a column? I think thats what nicole kidman and Gwthen Paltrow are? Tall and slim?
The facebook pictures look nothing like me either. That’s why I prefere this article: http://bodyshapestyle.com/2008/09/01/the-12-shapes-of-trinny-andsusannah/
It’s the same body types but with pictures of celebrities for examples.

mel

I used to have almost your exact measurements! 33-23-33, 5’5″ and 102. I’ve grown since then, though. You sound like you have a really small frame.

paulette
Member
paulette

Yeah, I have a small frame. I even steal my step-daughtherร‚ยดs t shirts, and she is 8 LOL. I am a latina but the opposite of Sofia Vergara. At least, if I am famous, you ll never have to hear me talking about my bโ†โ†bs hehe

mel

Haha oh Sofia and her bโ†โ†bs … if she ever had breast cancer I think the mastectomy would devastate her more than the disease itself ๐Ÿ˜‰

paulette

It is becoming a joke, really. I hate it cause I am from South America too, and I feel she somehow makes us latinas look sexy, with a cute accent, but with a serious lack of brain cells.

I hear ya. I dunno if it is because of where I am from, but having a booty is NECESSARY LOL. Also, you wont find many latins without a booty, so I guess I am used to seeing mine and my friends with one hehe

Cam

Lol yes I’m Latin as well(but live in the US) although it’s been hard wired in my brain to have a nice booty ๐Ÿ™‚

Hahha I am in the US too. It is really funny when I see now the “Brazilian booty” exercises…I am like…wait, iร‚ยดve been doing those since I was like 12! ahha

Ivory

Not all latinos have booty’s ๐Ÿ˜› My best friend is mexican and of spainish desent. (she’s part ukrainian on her dad’s side as well, but she looks exactly like her mom who is mexican of spainish descent). she’s built like an inverted triangle, beautiful with a large bust and slim legs, but not much of a booty. I’m of scottish/irsh/british descent and I have a much rounder and larger booty. I’ve always heard latino’s have nice buts, but I’ve havn’t seen it to be the case with people I know. I have seen it in regards to celebrities though. Basically… Read more »

wow she looks amazing for her age! and she seems to have lost a lot of her baby weight. so jealous!

Wow she looks amazing I will be defineltly adding her to my most favorite body list along with Cintia dicker,Kelly Brook,and Minka Kelly ๐Ÿ™‚

Eva

SHE had a baby?! WOW.

mel
Member

She looks absolutely gorgeous. I won’t wax as poetic about her body as I did about Gwynnie’s, because Gwyn just looks more athletic and that’s what I prefer, but I’ve gotta admit Padma has a fantastic bod – pretty much perfect.

paulette
Member
paulette

Agree with you again! I love them both but I prefer athletic bodies.
But regardless, I love this posts because they show a woman can be super hot and not necessarily 20, and even having a baby in their late 30ร‚ยดs!

mel
Member

Yes, my mom had me in her late 30s ๐Ÿ™‚ And it is possible to look great after children, just look at the VS models (Alessandra is approaching 30). And I think Halle Berry is one woman who is completely ageless. Jennifer Aniston too, but she sometimes look scarily young to me. Both are super hot though.
