    Bet you a fair few of the stick girls are desperate to have more shape to them....

    I find it quite difficult to look at my body and automatically know which shape I was....

    Measure you shoulders chest (around the brodest part, waist, and hips (again the brodest part). Also vertically between just under your bra line to your waist... then waist to horizonatal line of the hips..

    You can then create a linear drawing... by ploting them on paper - worthwhile doing at least once to get a rought take on what your shape looks like....

    So scale it all down to ratios... and you can do something like this... (if it works).... then it is way more easy to see your shape....

    Ok the commas are added to make this work... I'd say this body shape was near pear....

    That would fit the pattern.

    Honestly, we can't be everything. If we're one (e.g., stick-like), we're not the other (e.g. hourglassy). Not sure why we always focus on the "other."

    LOL It's so true, so how do we get to be contended with our own body shape?

    You mentioned other women said how good you looked, but you STILL crave a different shape.

    I have naturally curly hair, which I straighten every time I wash it, others perm theirs.....

    BONKERS!

    YOU HAVE CURLY HAIR?????? *envy*

    ... Actually, I like my straight hair... I just wish it had a tad more body to it.

    Well it's straight these days, but naturally fluffy bouncy curly hair (when it's scrunch dried), which when long is really full... right now it's a blond shlder length bob.... but hell it changes colour with the seasons.

    Ah you can't be everything....

    Haha@the to the bolded. Athletic racehorse sounds like it could be a real compliment, although a strange way of putting it.

    I modeled for awhile when I was younger, and was always told I had more the hour glass shape, but I can't relate to that picture at all. I'm not sure about the descriptions either. I don't have an athletic body type, although I've always had a tight, fairly muscular stomach, and thighs. Eh. I'm about to break out a tape measure.

    Try measuring and drawing... it really is much easier to see what shape you are than looking in the mirror...
