In general:

Pear in most pics. More top heavy after she gained weight in her last years. Looked much more hourglassy and proportionate in her modeling years when she was skinny.

Pear. Like Beyonce, she thought buying body parts (boobs and in Kim;s case, her butt) would make her an hourglass shape, but God is such a perfect designer He made it so your body shape never changes no matter how much weight you gain or lose or implants you buy.

Hi Quinn, I voted because I agree with almost all your choices and I love the idea for the list, however for example in the picture you posted, and many other pictures I've seen of Halle Berry, her shoulders look quite wide, and she does have at least a medium sized bust. I wouldn't say she is an hourglass, because her waist doesn't "nip in", its straight, and she has a long torso, but I wouldn't call her a pear either.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Jul 10 18:33
well, in some pictures I can definitely see a pear shape:

http://www.swedishseoul.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/halle-berry-malibu-beach-bikini-1.jpg

and pears can have medium/big boobs too, it's just kinda rare unless they're overweight. She certainly isn't an hourglass either way!

PS Where did Anne's boobs go?!
Posted: 6 years ago at Jul 29 2:03
Actually, Beyonce just stuffs her bra/wears padding/wears bust-enhancing clothes, but she doesn't have implants, I don't think, because you can often see her in clothing that shows how small her chest is.

I agree with most of these, but come ON. Marilyn Monroe not an hourglass??? Even the women I think are hourglass (Halle Berry, Jane Russell, Christina Hendricks, Salma, Kate, Scarlett, Kim) I kinda see why you can think they're not, but come ON. Miss Monroe not a figure 8?

But thanks for putting Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, and Katy Perry on this list. Every time I hear them or someone else talk about how they're "curvy" or "hourglassy" it irks a part of my brain.
Posted: 6 years ago at Jul 29 2:07
Wait, didn't Kim prove her butt was real? lol...
and Tyra Banks has always been, I think, more of a ruler than a pear.
Posted: 6 years ago at Jul 30 3:53
I could be wrong but in almost all of her pics, Marilyn's boobs and shoulders look smaller in proportion to her hips, which were considerably wider, thus making a pear shape. actually while she was famous for being kinda 'boobilicious' her boobs weren't even all that big, just like Katy Perry's (although Katy wears padding, pushup bras, and gel pads to enhance her bust too). The others, I've studied them with little clothing on (as pervy as that might sound, I don't mean it to be XP ...) and their measurements, and where they seem to store fat and muscle more, top, bottom, or all over, and what styles look flatter or unflattering on them.

And I never heard of Kim proving that, but it definitely looks changed to me. And Tyra could be, but I know she is just not an hourglass.
Posted: 6 years ago at Aug 13 4:18
YOu should add Pippa Middleton. People seem to think she's an hourglass.
Posted: 6 years ago at Aug 13 16:23
done!
Posted: 6 years ago at Aug 14 4:20
Cool!

As on your other list, I don't agree with all of these, but since you have so many of the "rulers" who people (for some reason) insist are voloptuous, you have my vote.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Aug 31 21:10
oh "honey", still angry that I pointed out pics of your tits on the Net is trashy? Act your age. I hate to dignify your attention-craving self with a long response, but I've got time. I'd no intention of annoying anyone w/ the TRUTH, but obviously you have some insecurity issues. Of all my lists, you picked one w/ the subject you're most obsessed with (women's body shapes) & you replied 3 times? Yikes. Therapy plz.

Hendricks is in no way an hourglass, even WITH all her padding, pushup bras, girdles, corsets, & airbrushing. Her shoulders & REAL boob size are small in proportion to her hips (& I'm the one that actually studies fashion, the body & what fashion designers say about measurements; I think I'm going to know more than someone who sees big tits and thinks "OMG SO CURVY!"). You prolly haven't even seen her without all that on:

http://cdn.wwtdd.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/christina_hendricks_smoking_a_cigarette_6-450x675.jpg "Get it right girl!"

Also, Halle isn't curvy.
http://www.hogwild.net/images/Misc/halle.berry-bra.jpg spreading your legs out doesn't create a defined waist- THAT IS WHAT CURVY MEANS.
For someone so shallowly obsessed with big porn star breasts as you, I'd think you would die before saying someone with such "small" boobs like hers is curvy. And Jessica never has been curvy that much either, especially since she gained weight. She's top-heavy- broad shoulders, big boobs, small hips.

and maybe some, but not most, by far. and runway shots are best. I noticed, oddly enough, that you like touched-up photos.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Aug 31 21:15
You're so unhealthily obsessed with women's bodies and looking like a porn star it's creepy. I hope whatever it is that makes you so behave so hatefully & insecurely goes out of your life. And unlike YOU, I'm not trying to be catty when I say that. Which is kinda funny since I'm prolly young enough to be your daughter.

And consider your immature, unclassy self blocked. I didn't block you before even though you were immature enough to block me for being honest about your slutty photos (which at any age is bad, but downright embarrassing for a person YOUR age) because I dont take Internet crap seriously and didnt think you deserved that from me.

There, now, I paid gave you the attention you wanted. That should satisfy you for a bit till you find another horny, desperate teenage guy to bend over for.

You were very critical (and rude) on my curvy list and I have just looked through some of your own lists and I whilst there are many I agree with there are more that I don't. For instance, I think it is very clear that Salma Hayek, Christina Hendricks, and Halle Berry are hourglasses and I question some of the women that you have labelled as hourglasses like Ashley Tisdale and Cate Blanchett. I do however agree that Jennifer Love Hewitt and Keira Knightly are pear shapes and with some other points that you raise on body types as well. There are other hourglass lists on here that would question your choices as well (have you seen Superamanda's?) but my point is that if you disagree that's fine but I don't think snarkiness is necessary nor calling me a 'silly boy' (when I am in fact a woman) just because my choices are not aligned with yours.

I would also add that curvy is defined by a woman's whr and thus many pears would also come under the curvy category.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Jan 5 17:42
I'm sorry if I was rude, sometimes I'm harsh but I never mean to be rude =) anyway, Christina is most definition a pear because she is bottom heavy, meaning she stores more fat in her hips, stomach and thighs (although she is rather flat in the butt which in unusual for pears) and her hips are wider than her bust/shoulders. Having large breasts has nothing to do with that, especially since they're more than likely fake (go google "Christina Hendricks Playboy" and you'll see). Salma is top heavy, meaning she stores more fat in her top and her shoulders are much wider than her hips, which are noticeably smaller in comparison and she has thin legs. Halle is very small on top with much wider hips in comparison, this she too is a pear. Cate may not be but in pics I've seen she looks it, but she's pretty modest so you cant always get a decent look.

And Superamanda is a very confused grown woman who has been brainwashed into thinking big boobs, huge hips and booties the size of a truck makes you curvy when they don't: waist definition does. If you want rude as hale, go tell HER she's wrong, that woman is psychotic as you can see o_O

And yes, many pears are curvy, I never said they weren't.

Well I think we'll have to agree to disagree regarding Hendricks, Salma, and Berry! I agree that it is more your shape and not your size that makes you an hourglass but Hendricks seems to have the Kelly Brook type of hourglass that is very big in the bust and hips but slimmer in the legs. She also has knee definition that pears do not have. I have seen the picks of her you are referring to but I'm on the fence as to whether this proves she's had an enhancement, given her age and smaller size at the time. Having a massive bust doesn't determine an hourglass figure but it is usual that hourglasses will have at least a medium sized bust.

Body typing seems to be a hot debate!
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 5 16:23
...question for you. then who is actually hourglass?
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 6 1:46
Already made a list. Why, does this bother you? It shouldn't.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 17 19:37
No, none are. that's why they're here. Jennifer could be a pear but my point is she isn't curvy like she always says.

You making things up because you don't like skinny women and prefer fat ones is sad.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 17 19:45
PS if I'm right and you're referring to Marilyn (though I'm still unsure of what you're referring to or why) then you DO know she was at best a size 4 right? and prolly a 0 in her youth, Rita also was no bigger than a 2, look how skinny and fat-free she is.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 20 12:55
Jennifer isn't a pear. She's a ruler shape with hourglass traits (which still makes her a ruler).
And yeah, most women in in "old timey" Hollywood were nowhere near as big as people try to say they were. If Marilyn Monroe, for instance, was a size 16 as misguided people like claiming, she wouldn't have photographed as well as she does, being as short (5'4" or 5'5" depending on the source) as she was.

Beauty standards change. Hippy, pear shapes with large busts and small waists like Kim K. are the new "hourglass." In spite of all the nit picking and snarking over the flaws in celebrity bodies,most of these women have had very successful careers and are considered to be very beautiful with lovely figures. But, come ON. America Ferrera? How did she wind up on a curvy, hourglass list? Jeez. I'd love to see all of you anonymous armchair critics post photos of YOURSELVES. Have one of you looked down Katy Perry or Beyonce's cleavage to detect their silicone padding? Do you spend hours with a magnifying glass studying pictures of female celebrity bodies? Cutting and pasting pics of women who don't know you from a housefly? Oh, well. Whatever turns you on.

what are you talking about? your post is saying like... 3 different things. and your tone changes from what sounds like agreement to offensive.

and ok, cutting apart a list that (apparently) is saying something you don't like and nitpicking someone who doesn't know you from a housefly? oh, well. whatever turns you on.
Posted: 4 years, 8 months ago at Dec 14 11:17
who is a true hourglass then?
Posted: 4 years, 1 month ago at Jul 13 0:48
Hi, I heard some times that Kenya Moore was an hourglass. Maybe you should also add her to your list. I suggest you to check some pics of her. In my opinion, she´s not one.
Posted: 4 years, 1 month ago at Jul 16 3:02
http://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/rhoa-kenya-moore-barbados-bikini-the-jasmine-brand.jpg definitely not hourglass. looks like a ruler who distributes fat like a pear, or a pear who is almost proportionate. if any of that made sense.

I think people are predisposed to call black women curvy/hourglass shaped regardless of how many actually look, just because that's the stereotype, like how all white girls are apparently small, skinny, flat chested, ruler shaped with a flat butt. Oh, and all Latinas look like Sophia Loren or Sofia Vergara.
Posted: 4 years, 1 month ago at Jul 17 21:00
Sorry, most of the women you call pear-shaped are actually hourglasses; the rule you and your friend adhere to-"their shoulders must be smaller than their hips"- to qualify as pear just proves that they aren't pears (since their shoulder are the same size, or wider than their hips). The only real pears I see in this list is Beyonce & Jennifer Lopz; I agree that they both push their boobs up to get an hourglass effect.

I noticed that too. It has to do with the type of image each group has been promoting. The majority of women in white media has been skinny since several decades ago and that helped to shape the stereotype about them being rulers.

Blacks and latinas have always been promoting curves, at least that´s what we have seen on the mainstream media.

None of these, however, reflects the reality since media doesn´t promote your average women but rather an ideal of how women (and men) should look like according to a certain culture´s standards.

From reading these posts, it's obvious none of you really understand what an hourglass shape is. Pear-shaped women have a hip measurement that is bigger than their shoulders, period and a small waist. Hourglass women are proportional: that is their shoulders and hips are the same measurement and their waists are nine to ten inches smaller than their hips. An hourglass usually has medium to large bust and a shapely behind. Marilyn Monroe is a classic hourglass. You can be a heavy or thin hourglass. It's your frame, and it doesn't really change. It's a shape, not a weight.
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Dec 6 9:37
Pathetic and petty.
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Jun 17 4:44
Marilyn Monroe is definitely an hourglass shaped. I am an hourglass shape myself and hourglass women have arms and thighs that is hard to tone. Or no matter how hard you tone, it still keeps its feminine shape, still looking soft no matter what! Unlike pears who have baby arms from the beginning and even rulers. I am 36-26-36 and 5'5 in height.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Aug 28 23:08
I sense some major jealousy.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Dec 8 1:26
I respectfully disagree here. We know Kim K's boobs are bought, but what I think constitutes an hourglass body isn't breasts (though important) but actually the shoulder line. In the picture you choose of JLo it doesn't show but her shoulder line is really strong. That's what makes JLo much more of an hourglass and Kim a pear, in my book.

I would like to provide you with constructive criticism, the way you reply to some comments can easily be seen as obnoxious. I would like to emphasize that discussions are used to share ideas, thus being open-minded is important. I think you could benefit from sharing your ideas while being open-minded and considering other people's ideas without offending people.

I would like to bring up that body shape includes silhouette, features, proportions, and weight distribution. In the assessment of a body shape (shape), there are several additional factors to consider such as clothing, weight gain, weight loss, exercise levels and age since they can somewhat alter a person's shape. Some people's bodies fall within two types of shapes. As a result, at times they might appear like a certain shape, but if other factors such as weight gain and age occur then their shape can fluctuate towards a different shape than their previously perceived shape.

With that being said, I do not think that you can use one or two picture(s) to accurately categorize or unsort a person of having a certain shape especially if their bodies closely fall in between two shapes. Although you might have good intentions, I partly agree with some of the comments above. I think your list would greatly benefit from further elaboration, since I think one or two picture(s) can be ambiguous to effectively support some of your claims.

On a lighter note, I would like to share some of the websites/blogs below that I found enjoyable and insightful in determining a woman's body shape.

There are two women, that are definitely an hourglass and therefor, here NOT listet:
Rachel Khoo [Link removed - login to see]
or Nigella Lawson [Link removed - login to see]
[Link removed - login to see]
Hourglasses have more of an an endomorph bone and body structure, So the wrist is not very fragile, the arms are often a bit chubby and you don`t see the bones under the neck (all of that`s often the case in pear shapes), they have often medium till broad shoulders, and the waist is as a contrast to shoulders and hips VERY small (and stays small also when they gain weight), the bum is more medium, the inner tighs are full, the lower legs are muscular and the ankles are small. Mostly the tummy is a bit chubby and stays so also when losing weight, mostly unter the abdomen.
