I actually am pretty lucky in that way I don't gain on my hips...

I gain on my bust first then thighs and butt. My hips stay very bony....


I already figured a way to add 2 inches so I guess it's as good as I can get.

I see women with this build often.

My body resembles coco austin but it isn't an exact snap shot image. No one looks exactly alike. My shoulders and hips almost align-my hips are only a tiny bit wider than my shoulders. I have a big butt and decent size hips but my hips are not very wide like a classic pear such as Kim k, Alicia keys, or Jennifer Hewitt. I don't have slender arms and my hips are not significantly wider than my waist or protrude significantly. I'm muscular in build. My hips are wide but not extremely so, and I have more butt than I do hips. I'm not a classic pear. Google cocoa Austin's body and you will see that she is not a classic pear in the fashion of Alicia keys or j Hewitt who have the classic pear look to the tea.



if you are so convinced that you are an hour glass why did you start this thread? All your doing is arguing with people when it is you who presented your measurements which clearly did not meet the definition of an hour glass woman. If you want validation that you are an hour glass than you should have made the announcement in the beginning of the thread. Otherwise what exactly is your goal? Almost everyone has confirmed you are a triangle even with the pics and the continued clarification from you. If you believe otherwise STILL then do be it.

an hourglass is someone with a ten difference at least an inverted triangle is not... I fit the first definition and if you look like coco you're probably pear imo. Why are you upset that I'm not Inverted Triangle? I am just telling you the truth of what I look like and I'm pretty done here like I said I found some ways to look proportional.

Actually if you google cocoa austin she is referred to as an hour glass. In fact I just typed it in google search and she was classified as an hour glass. And I'm not upset that you are a triangle, but clearly you are. Learn to love your body. I hope you come to terms with it.

people call iggy and hourglass sometimes. It's just in reference to the wide hips. Accept that you are actually a pear and move on.

I have no problem being a pear. I look nothing like iggy at all so I can't comment on her being called an hour glass or whether she is a pear. I'm assuming you know her measurements and that's why you assumed she is a pear? If she is referred to as an hourglass than maybe she is.

Shape labeling is based on measurement so if she met the proper measurement for an hour glass then it does not matter if she looks like a pear to YOU.

I'm a variation of a pear with hour glass qualities as I already said earlier. I've been told I was an hourglass by people that know irl but my measurements are that of a pear. But I don't look like a classic pear so I'm often referred to as hourglass. But I am not a true hour glass based on my measurements and you aren't either.

But if trolling this forum asking a question that only really requires a google search on your part, is your forte, than congrats. You've asked a no brainer, had it answered and can't seem to accept the answers that were provided. Like I said if you want to be validated for being an hour glass then the announcement should have been made early on. All you've done is posted a rebuttal to everyone and claimed that you are in fact the very shape that you originally had no clue about in the first place. You knew what an hour was but started this thread and apparently it wasn't created for any reason than confirmation that your not a triangle. And Baiting much? Loves it though, do you girlie, if you believe you are an hour than that's all that matters.

I don't look a thing like that person. My boobs shoulders and hips are much bigger than that compared to my waist. And my waist is much smaller than hers.

Guidelines actually say I should be an hourglass since both my hips and boobs are 10 inches bigger than my waist. If you'd look back my waist to hips ratio is very defined. An hourglass is not a pear. Which it seems many of you try to connect it to being when it certainly isn't. Just because my hips aren't my main feature doesn't mean I'm not an hourglass. An hourglass is someone who's hips and shoulders/bust are significantly bigger than the waistline. Not just the hips. Not just the shoulders. But in combination.
The underlined is what I was getting at earlier. That is what determines the hourglass.

You seem to be arguing here that you are an hourglass. Contrary to your OP. It's getting confusing. Could you clarify?

I'm not even arguing with you on if I'm hourglass because honest truth my shape is too dang confusing.


Guess what? We all have opinions... Let it go. I don't think coco is hourglass. I was just saying that I don't fit the requirements for an inverted triangle. I don't get why this is a problem to you. You aren't stuck with my body shape.

I didn't mean to insult anyone. Honest truth you describe me. Just on the other end. I'm a combo of hourglass and inverted triangle. You seem to not understand an there can be such a combo.

oh and I'm not trolling I have tried to make this quick and short but you seem to be trying to make this more than it really is. If you can't do simple math, that's not my problem. I am just saying I don't think coco is an hourglass. And I don't think I'm an inverted triangle because I have wide hips. I didn't say I was an hourglass just not inverted triangle because my whr is .69. I'm neither fully. That's how I perceive myself to be.

I'm not saying I'm an hourglass. I'm just not an inverted triangle due to the difference in waist to hip difference. I'm not arguing I was just sharing my opinion and reality.


Could you guys just let this thread die. There's really no point we all have our idea of what shape is what.

I'm done.

Why ask for our opinions then? If we all have them and you clearly see things your way, why even post this? I have no grudge with you so there is nothing to let go. I was just trying to understand the motivation for this thread and letting you know how you were coming across. As far as iggy goes her and coco have completely different bodies. Iggy certainly looks like a pear to me. She has slender arms and narrow shoulders, and her hips are much wider than her shoulders, she is very hippy. Coco has thicker arms and broader shoulders and her hips are wide too but her shoulders and hips are more aligned and proportioned. Two different bodies completely. I'm not sure what there measurements are so I can't say what they are but i can say that yes to me iggy does look like a pear not an hour. Cocoa looks like an hour more than a pear but without the boobs she would be a variation of a pear with hour glass qualities=me.

And in your case yes you probably are a combo of both. But most would consider combinations to just be shape variations. So for instance I'm a pear variation since my measurements are not true hour glass and seem to go along with pear but I look more hour glass more than I do the traditional or classic pear look. Your an inverted triangle variation with measurements that are more along the lines of a triangle but you look more hourglass as opposed to the traditional triangle look.

But neither one of us are hour glass in the sense that we have those hourglass measurements.

AMEN! After reading a few posts and responses I began to wonder about the real reason for the OP's post cause it couldn't have had anything to do with the original question!
