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

I have broad shoulders, large breasts for my age, wide hips, and a tummy. My thighs are huge, and my calves are wide. :iconblushuplz: I don't know what I have!
Sepheratta Featured By Owner Edited Mar 31, 2015   Traditional Artist
I have broad shoulders, and a small waist. I also have very small breasts. I have rather large hips in comparison to my waist but my shoulders are still wider than my hips noticeably. I also have large calves and thighs but thin arms. XD Literally my calves are the same thickness as my thighs.

bodies are confusing lol
Mortquitamort Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hourglass and Cello size worths it... hehehehe
Eisenmade Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hm, I still can't figure out what body shape I am... :-? (Confused) 

I would say I'm a vase, with broad shoulders and smaller breasts, or a cornet with bigger breasts and a more defined waist. 
Also my hips are wider than my breasts, but my shoulders are wider than my hips. But the widest part of my body are my thighs, because my thigh bones stick out a little further.

The most confusing part about my body is, that it makes things appear smaller than they are. According to measurement, my legs and upper body are the same length, but my legs look shorter. Also I have really broad shoulders, which make my average breasts look small. 

Can someone figure it out? I have no idea... Thanks. Dance!

This is so cool! Thanks for doing it :la:

I have a small correction though, about the hourglass figure: you say "Big breasts, (same size as hips)", that's not right, the shoulders are the same "size" as hips, one can totally be a hourglass with average/small boobs, just like the pear shape can totally have average/big boobs even tough they'll look small in comparison to the hips (and it's not common).

I'm a hourglass and I like the pear shape, and all the other shapes <3

So I can't seem to fit myself into one. I usually dubbed my self a pear 🍐 but I do not have a flat stomache, never have even when I was smaller. It's always been a problem. I would wear clothing for pears but they never seemed to fit right cause my stomache just got in the way. I just figured for lack of a better word, I'm fatter then I should be to take the test, but wondering if you've come across this, big tummy, bug bum (love the assest! 😜, big thighs big calves, short legs.

I am a mix of apple and brick :/ But mostly apple... I'd like to have pear or hourglass, too lazy though
The-Dorito-Butler Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
I'm pretty much a mix between Pear and Hourglass, as I have features of both.

I don't know how to describe my body but I guess I'm sort of a chubby hourglass? XD

I don't really fit into any of these haha, thanks for making this, it's helpful!
Journie Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
haha extreme column here. Taller than average and trying to keep from going underweight. I've noticed more and more lately all that anti-skinnygirl stuff like, "Skinny is ugly." "Men don't like sticks." "Little more booty to last the night." or however it goes. Some of us are just naturally tall and super thin. Anyway, glad to be represented.

Between skittle and column for me.

I like the cornet and column most, although if someone had a lollipop build with small breasts I would like that too.

I'm shaped like a lollipop

Either cornet or column but I'm starting to get fat Cx 
corneillecoco Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I'm either an hourglass or a cello.  I have a very short waist and long legs. I'm about a 37-30-40.  My top is slightly smaller than my hips but I don't see anything in the above that would match that that would give enough definition of waist.  Vase, column, and goblet do not define the waist area enough.   Before I had kids, I was a very strong and unwavering 34-27-37. 
moonlitinuyasha1985 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014
I'm definitely column.

wonderful leg and body reference
Viivizka Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2014
What am i? I have broad shoulders, bigger than average belly, little bigger hips than boobs and that's why almost no waist and thick legs. I would say that i'm more like cello, but i have big legs :D
EnderCookies Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  Student General Artist
Maybe goblet
Maththedwarf Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2014
Great work! I always talk to my friends how I dislike the one-and-only-way comics portrait heroines. So if you got an X gene you got the "super body gene" too? Camon!
Well, congrats! I liked it a lot and will use for reference when I'll sketch =)
BiggestROTGFanEva Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014
I think I'm vase, and now I can draw realistic bodies for my characters! :3
Black-Sun-Frau Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
My shape is: Big chest, wide hips slightly wider than upper thighs, and thighs that narrow to the knee, and thinner shorter lower legs. What would that be? 
anniebee25 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
I think I'm in one of those 9-10%...  :)

I have small-average breasts
Small and short waist
Large hips
Long legs
Curvy but not large legs.

My legs mean I'm not a bell or a skittle.

My breasts mean I'm not a hourglass or a cello.

I think I most resemble your picture of the hourglass or cello, if she had a breast reduction :))  I'm not quite sure what the difference is.
EliKynith Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014
As a guy, I will tell you that I tend to have a more visceral reaction to those that tend towards the hourglass, vase, and cello. I am, admittedly, a "boob man" but appreciate lots of curve from the waist, hips, and thighs. The trump is the specific combination of red hair, light eyes, and pale skin - I have no idea why.

I should also mention that my wife is more of a short, wide column with small breasts (dark hair, medium skin, and brown eyes), reinforcing point #3 that your shape doesn't define your womanhood, nor whether or not you are attractive. Anyone who will base whether or not to pursue a relationship based purely on looks isn't worth dating. I feel I should also mention that every guy has different things they like - every one of my friends likes something different - but no looks are as important as how you get along.

Love this! Just wish the hourglass was an hourglass icon rather than Marilyn Monroe. Thanks for the description with the picture :3

Adam-Walker Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2014   Writer
The ones I use:

Hourglass: No! Never used it and never will

Brick: No idea

Skittle: See hourglass

Lollipop: Definitely not!

Cornet: No waist? Really? No!

Pear: No!

Cello: No!

Column: If that is the average design yes!

Bell: Definitely not!

Apple: Yeah, probably. No not really.

Vase: No! Never!
