    FDG - thick neck = not a huge amount you can do, but I suspect you ought not to wear polo necks, and perhaps wear V necks or other neck lines that draw the eye away from the neck.

    Cafe you may be a bell or a pear shape - there is loads you can do to balance it... working for measurments not real dimentions, so it might be a bit out... try the gok consultation

    Haphaz... looks like you ight be hour glass, or near enough... it depends on where you put weight on if you pur weight on, if it's even you are hour glass, if it's all on your booty then you're a non pronounce pear shape.. so hour galss moving to pear shaped. Keep in mind I'm just usuing your measurments alone. so 3d you might be physicall veyr different.

    Fluff is that weight of you till shoulder height or does the weight include shoulders up. Or perhaps the 4 foor refers to soulders up?

    Meta -- by those standards pears ought not to wear, Red, Yellow, or green either cos then they would look like telly tubbies... harsh!!!

    There was something on body shape on This Morning today - they gave two women a rack of clothes to dress from and then a sytlist redressed them from the same rail, both girls choose the wrong things and the re-styled outfits looked amazing, I'll see if they post pre/post pictures and put them up here if they do...

    I don't really feel like I fit into any of those, or I fit most of them. I have a shape which seems "normal" to me. Not super curvy, not super straight, not super short or tall (5'7). It seems ok to me, the only thing I wish is that fat would go somewhere other than my stomach. My ideal body would probably be about 10 pounds lighter but I'm not going to bother trying for it (though I kinda want to eat a bit healthier lately).

    Maybe a non-tall column, a bigger-hipped cornet, a slightly chubbier lollipop, a skinnier skittle or a smaller-boobed vase. lol.

    I have no idea how to dress my body since it doesn't seem particularly "shaped' to me. I go for tshirts and jeans so it's easy. I've noticed that those tight, stretchy shirts look unappealing on me (though also most people over 100 pounds). Emphasizing abdominal fat = eww.

    edit: maybe skittle or pear is the most appropriate although I'm not that large (I think), and I don't feel my thighs are huge although I have "soccer legs" (= large thighs and calves, big knees, etc)...

    It'll be okay if you wear green and purple stripes.

    "So youre a Perfect Pear! The most popular and natural body shape amongst women in the UK, and girl do you have it all going on! From your curvaceous, beautiful hips and thighs, to your perfectly proportioned shoulders and waist, youre the envy of every girl and the dream of every man."

    I'm not that crazy about his suggestions for clothing, but I've already figured out how to dress myself reasonably well (except jeans...those are impossible without some kind of alteration).

    Presumably the Gap is doing curved jeans these days... if its helpful

    I wasn't mad about some of my suggested gear either but if you see them dress people they really do work on the shape... esp if they get the colouring right.

    I went shopping last night and had the VS girls do it for me. I'm 32-22-32.5, 5ft 6.5 and 129 pounds. LOL. I guess I'm still an hourglass though.
    You're still really small, I bet you fit size 00.
