Body Shape Calculator

Just plug in your measurements and it suggests cuts to look for.

Not bad. They should ask more questions about the bust though. Someone with my measurement could look really different on the top based on shoulder width/bra size.

Half of the recommendations for dresses wouldn't work for me because I am too busty!

It won't work on my iPad

But I think I've used that one before and it told me I was undefined. Other similar site put me as a pear or hourglass, depending on how strictly they define hourglass.

That site is bogus. I plugged in my wife's measurements and it said "body type unavailable" - 34-22-36. Plus, it doesnt ask for cup size which seems odd. A 34A is very very different from a 34D.

LOL, that is really funny. I tried similar measurements....and it appears that is unsure what to do if the waist bust or waist hip gap is too large.

I'm a spoon. Styles suggested include an "A" line skirt or dress. I just bought a New Year's Eve dress (that I couldn't wear that night, because the event I attended was outside, and temps were in the mid 40s! ) that features an "A" line skirt. Who needs a website?

Bust size is band size + cup size together. So if I remember correctly A cup is one inch so her bust size would be 35.

Using that your wife is an hourglass shape.

I found it to be a little weird that it didn't use bra size. Someone with my measurements could easily have anywhere from ~32J bra size to about ~40B. And would obviously looks wildly different. One might end up more spoon looking, and another might look more "hourglass" since they had wider shoulders.

Beyond that it assumes your waist is in the middle. It told me I was an hourglass. Yeah... right.

On me, my waist is right above my hips. And my legs are sorta short. I'm 5'5" and I wear petite pants.... shouldn't... but they fit perfectly. I am long waisted. If I wear regular pants, the waistband ends up under my boobs.

I am the opposite. I have short/high waist and longer legs. I am also around 5'5 but I need 31 seam for flats and 33 if i need a taller shoe.

Low rise pants usually hit me at my natural waist. But my waist is about 4 inches below my bust (and a around 1.5-2 inches above my belly button.

They need more questions about torso shape and dimensions for it to work well. I find these surveys and event he body scanners don't seem to account for torso length.
