Do you like your body shape? Do you think any body type can be beautiful? I do.

ETA: What is your body type? What's your favorite body type? How can we work on making your body type your favorite body type?

Also- Wow....there are different types of pears, apples, ect. INTERESTING.

It's a classic "grass is always greener" issue - tempting to think someone else has it better, but more likely they think you're the one better off. It's better to make peace with it and emphasize your good parts. And if one is unhappy, spend more time watering the grass.

Edit - on me: My thighs and hips are what they are, and that's OK. I really am grateful for a small(er) waist! But that's me. Doesn't make a pear better than an apple. My mother's apple-shaped and she struggles with it - but I admire how slim her legs are.

I definitely think any body type can be/is beautiful, absolutely!!!

Do I like mine? I struggle with that.

I can't wait to get more of my weight off so I can see what my shape is. I look at those pics of those beautiful ladies and it makes me hopeful that it doesn't matter what shape I am, any of those looks will work!

I think that any shape can be beautiful but I admit scouring several different sites hoping that one would tell me that I'm an hourglass when in reality I'm a pear.

I really need to stop picking myself apart and complaining about every little thing.

I really like my body shape. Especially when it's clothed.


I think I'm a cello! Which I've always thought was a sensual instrument. Curvy...people play it between their legs. BUWAHAHA. AWESOME.


Maybe someday I will even learn how to shop for my body shape. I think I've been doing it all wrong. I might be doing myself a terrible disservice trying to wear swim skirts:

(But it's scary not covering up my legs- and this model isn't overweight!)

I think pears are dead sexy, but I really do like all the shapes. I think it all boils down to how to dress, which I'm clueless on.

I am a goblet shape (going by Trinny and Susannah's definitions). So that means broad shoulders, big boobs, no defined waist, a belly, slim hips and long slim legs.

I do like my legs but I've always envied women who were more pear shaped and could get away with cute little strappy dresses that hide a multitude of sins underneath.

I expect that no matter how much weight I lose, my basic shape isn't going to change much and I will always be top heavy and too big on top to carry off some of what I wish I could wear. On the other hand, I can rock a pair of skinny jeans and boots, and when I'm a bit slimmer, I can also look good in shorter skirts (although not too short since I'm over 50 now!)

WOW! That is really something! How does one figure this out??? I think it's hard to figure out what flatters your no matter what, but especially so after losing weight (at any point in the process) because you have this NEW body!

I like the fact they mentioned long or short waist vs short or long legs.

I'm 5/7, but I'm long waisted - my inseam is only 29; pants length wise I fit best in short sizes! Most tops are very short on me, which makes being an apple difficult to fit into clothes.

I think I am a chello/apple... I have a long torso, shorter legs, bigger hips and bum, smaller chest, broad shoulders and a big belly. I think I will like my figure a whole lot more when all the extra is gone. Presently, trying to find flattering clothes is a big challenge.

I think any shape it just fine, you just gotta learn how to dress for it (I'm still learning!)
