The female body shape is comprised of various factors namely her skeletal structure, and quantity and distribution of Fat and Muscle tissue. Depending on the different cultures, different body types are preferred and seen as ideal. But one thing that remains the same across all cultures, is that sexual attraction, reproduction and fertility, are directly linked to a body shape.
The general female body comes in a range of different shapes. Basically the typical body is narrower in the waist area then at the bust or hips area. There are four basic different shapes, banana, apple, pear, and hourglass. These different shapes are measured at the three different points called inflection points. The circumference ratio is measured at the bust, waist and hips.
The Bust is measured across the widest part of a woman’s breast, the waist is measured at the abdomen, and the hips are measured at the hips and buttocks area.
The Female Body Shape is classified into 4 different general shapes. Regardless of fat percentage, weight or width, there are quite wide ranges of actual sizes within each shape.
Apple (triangle downward)
Apple shaped women have broader shoulder and have generally narrower hips. Apple shaped women can have slim legs/thighs, while the abdomen and chest look out of proportion compared with the rest of the body. With this body type fat is usually distributed around the abdomen, chest and face.
Banana or Straight (rectangular)
The waist measurement is less than 9 inches smaller than the hips or breast circumference. Body fat is distributed very evenly all over the body. That means areas like abdomen, buttocks, chest, and face receive the same quantity giving the body shape this straight ruler shape.
The hip measurement is greater than the bust measurement The distribution of fat tissue, with the majority of fat deposit in the buttocks, hips and thighs first. The women of this body type tend to have a larger rear, thick and very robust thighs, and generally a relatively small breasts.
Hourglass Shape (triangles opposing facing in)
The hips and the bust area are of equal size with a narrow waist. Body fat is equally distributed around both the upper and lower body. This body type generally builds fat on the arms, chest, hips and buttocks, before other parts, such as the waist and abdomen.
Studies in North American have shown that women in the US in 2005 that 46%percent women had the banana(rectangular) shape, approximately 20% had the pear shape, under 14% had the apple shape, and about 8% had the hourglass shape.
A woman’s sex hormone levels will affect the fat distribution on her body. According to Dr. Devendra Singh, “Body shape is determined by the nature of body fat distribution that, in turn, is significantly correlated with women’s sex hormone profile, risk for disease, and reproductive capability. Concentrations of estrogen will influence where body fat is stored. For Bigger Butt Products visit our store.
