12 realistic woman body shape chart by NinaSquirrelly 12 realistic woman body shape chart by NinaSquirrelly
authors personal note:
:bulletyellow::bulletyellow:and I have a question for you.
which body shape do you have? and which onde do you like? C: :bulletyellow::bulletyellow:
I wanted to do this for so long and finally did it!!
I've been curious about body shapes since I was 13. so that makes it 5 years ^^;
it was the time when I discovered that I didn't look like anyone in my family from my mother's side. (unfortunately, I'm not familiar with my fathers relatives ^^;; )
and I discovered that I'm a Lollipop :iconcandiesplz:

I always felt that simply categorizing them either with apple hourglass or pear was not enough! XD but then I discovered Trinny and Susannah's body shape bible, that included 12 body shapes and taadaaah!~ I illustrated them ~


IMPORTANT NOTES: 1.all of the female bodies represented in this picture are supposedly showing how they would compare if they were SAME height

2.more than 90% of women fall into some category, if you find your self to be part of that 9-10% let me know please ^^

3. body shape does NOT define your level of womanliness! I hate when people say "real woman have curves" or "nobody likes fat chicks" or "ugly anorexic bitch".
you know what makes you a woman? A VAGINA! period.
(I did not just made a vagina joke XDD)
(And of course I mean physically and biologically, and not mentally. love and support for LGBT <3 )
4.I DID NOT made those shapes up along with the names. they were also examined and illustrated first by Trinny and Susannah.

5. most confusion comes about pear, skittle and bell. well usually they have a lot of fat stored on their lower bodies, but that doesn't mean they can't have slim legs C: maybe not skinny, but if they're thin, they will probably have no saddle bags or overly big appearance on thighs and legs. if your waist isn't long but your shoulders are narrow, than you might be bell. I illustrated bell to be heavier than other body shapes in order to show how much bigger bell's bottom can be compared to rest of the body.
hope I cleared that out a bit more xD;; and let me just say that Bell definitely is in my personal top 3 body shapes! beyonce is the famous bell shapes. 

6.height does not determine your leg length. what does determine your leg length is the comparison of your waist length to it. leg length is measured from ankles to your sexual organ, and upper body length is measure from your sexual organ to chin. so that means that someone who is 5'10 can have short legs too (because upper body is longer then her lower body) and someone who is 5'1 can have long legs (because her upper body is shorter)


so, which body shape are you? ;D

Hourglass, having short waist and upper body is a bummer now that you have "short" shirts hot in fashion. To me, most of them still hit my hip and not my waist. Even i have huge tits they don't shorten the shirts enough unless they are tight fit! But then they might be too small from shoulders. Long legs are pain too, with pants and shoes that are supposedly meant to come "above" knee. I have long calves so they end before my knees or at them. 

BUT i tend to draw my females into same shape as i am, now i have starter to come out from the comfort zone and started to drop the waist line and make back longer. 

But this was a really nice chart :D explaining a lot more  than normal ones, (Y) Nice work :)

I'm a cello (large hips and boobs, long waist, and short stumpy legs). Makes it difficult to find dresses that fit well, as short ones tend to be uncomfortably short, and long ones swamp me :P

Aww I'm a Skittle/ Pearish but with broader shoulders. Thank you so much for making this! I was searching on the internet for anatomy references and found this picture so I looked up your deviantart and logged in just so I could like it here :') I have my body issues and with magazines and everything I don't always feel that confident but your more realistic and accessible range of body types here make me feel happy because final there's something that looks a bit like me, and when you look at all the body shapes, they are all beautiful in their own way. Thank you :iconslowhugplz:

I find it interesting, I am a pear, but I have almost ridiculously long legs. Most people think I have an "athletic" body type because of that, but I'm such a pear asides from my legs
nasiapink Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm more of a cello body shape mixed with vase,and curvy....
sarah1989q Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2015
Honestly, I think I belong to none of these categories. Wide shoulders-fat arms, no breasts, big belly+back fat, wide hips-juicy bottom, slim (almost too slim) long legs
bzmayes Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Cello! Great illustrations!
KamisamaJun Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015
It depends on different draw (compared with yours) but normaly I am a pear but here I am a bell (xD idk what is better)
But I have large shoulder and long leg (but little breats, big thighs and big bottom)
Maddycake Featured By Owner Edited Jun 14, 2015  Student Filmographer
I have a mixture of the hourglass and cello body shape, but I'm pretty tall.
GoldenEyedDragon Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2015
I'm kind of a vase shape with a short waist, short legs, and just short all over. I hate being petite. I wish my shoulders were a bit more petite though.
RedLotusPony Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Probably hourglass, but with smaller breasts. I'm really happy with my body shape :)
Darkstar-The-Awesome Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2015
Probably column
