I've never seen anything like that before! Thanks for posting it. I'm also an hourglass. I think. I like my legs the best. They're short, but they're muscular and have little fat. I dislike my stomach the most. Or maybe my back.

I am a skittle. lol~! I have a long slim upper body, and that is where I tend to lose weight the easiest. However, my legs aren't that bad. They tone up pretty easily........ it just takes more time for them to SLIM down. I have to remind myself that it takes time.

LOL, I'm trying to figure out what a Skittle has to do with a bowling pin, or a Cornet with an ice cream cone. Strange analogies.

Haha... it was written in England (or at least somewhere in the UK, I don't know if they all use those terms). A "skittle" is the pin they use in that 9-pin bowling-type-game, and I didn't know about the word "Cornet" for ice cream cone until the first time I saw that chart, but apparently that's a nickname for it.

im somewhere between an aple and an hourglass. when i stand naked i can see that I have a big bust, and bigger hips then my waist, but my legs are skinny, and usually the fist thing i lose weight at are my legs.

I love them.

I am without a doubt a pear shape, all my weight goes directly to my hips thighs and butt. It's also the last place I lose weight. I do like my tummy though so I guess you can only win so many battles.

I think I'm a combo of a Skittle and a Pear...just because my hip bones stick out like the girl in the Skittle pic and a lot of my weight is on my god awful thighs..lol.

Just found this questionaire about what size you are...apparently I am a pear..lol

I'm an hourglassy-pear. Or a pear with boobs!

I carry all my weight in my thighs/hips, but I have big boobs. My shoulders are not quite as wide as my hips, but they aren't narrow either. I don't carry weight in my stomach.

I wish my thighs/butt were smaller, but I don't mind my shape. It's very feminine

I think that's natural. I think after a point you overwhelm your body type. At least that's what happened to me. That's when I really felt fat, when I really started gaining in the abdomen and losing my natural shape.

Hourglass.. I'm short, and I have a medium build, and I'm naturally muscular all over, especially my legs and arms.. so when I gain it just.. ugh.. I am ridiculously curvy and even though I gain all over, its like either my butt/thighs or my bust will become noticeably bigger and my stomach will too, but not really at the waist.. so far, my waist hasn't really gone down by much in comparison, and last time I went down to 141, it took quite a while for my waist to lose.. it's like everything around my waist will go down.. weird. It sucks, its really tough finding something to wear b/c either I will look bigger than I am or too curvy..
I found this quiz
http://quiz.ivillage.com/cgi-bin/die...s/bodytype.cgi

It was actually extremely accurate with my result..

I am also an hourglass/apple combo, although I read somewhere that only 8% of women are true hourglasses, so maybe I'm not. My measurements(48-36-48) certainly point towards hourglass. However, I am pretty overweight and I have this lovely tire round the middle between my natural waist and my hips. My natural waist goes in quite a lot, and I can feel it when following my bone structure!
