Everywhere we turn there are magazines that tell us that we should be tailoring our exercising and meal planning to the type of body we have, but how are we supposed to make a plan for our bodies when we don’t even have a clue what body shape we’re classified as having?
Keep reading to help you determine your body type:
With an hourglass shaped figure, the circumference of your bust and your hips are roughly the same, and Women’s Magazine tells us that the difference in circumference between the bust and the waist and between the hips and the waist is usually at least a nine inch difference. Women with an hourglass shape tend to have fat deposits distributed in both their upper and lower body. Many girls are blessed naturally with an hourglass figure.

Pear or Spoon
If your body is classified as pear or spoon shaped, the circumference of your hips is noticeably larger than the circumference of your bust, and chances are that you’ve got a pleasantly plump posterior. Women with this body shape typically have more fat deposits in their thighs and buttocks.
For you, there isn’t much of a difference in the circumference of your bust, waist, and hips. You probably have a difference in circumference between your hips and waist and bust and waist of less than nine inches. Your body fat is deposited mostly in your abdominal area as well as your buttocks.
If your shoulders are more broad than your hips, you probably classify as having an inverted triangular shape. Your hips most likely measure at least nine inches less in circumference than your bust measures, and your fat deposits are mainly distributed to your abdomen and chest.
All of these body shapes are beautiful and should be taken care of and maintained along with your health. Now that you know what body type you have, you can come up with exercise and meal plans to help keep your body in shape.
