Hey,

So I don't have one to start the thread off with sigh "heavy sigh", but I recently had to admit that I am not a pear and am in fact an hourglass trust me I googled various calculators and even fudged the numbers slightly to prove I wasn't, but to no avail. I am not a pear just a very hippy/curvy hourglass.

So, there's always these huge threads for pears and apples, but what about us hourglass girls? Sure there is some, but it never gets as many responses as the other shapes.

So if you buxom and proud show it off! Oh and especially if you don't have the small waist hourglasses are famous for I want to see you!

PS: if you started off as an hour glass and went to another shape you welcome as well!

Editing to add some success since its a success thread:

Bust went from 110 cm to 96 cms
waist went from 96 cm to 78 cm
hips went from 110 to 103 cm (not much of a change I'm a hippy girl legs themselves slimmed out)

    Thanks for the sarcasm lol, but yes lol it was a bit of a shock since my family mostly lean towards the pear shape or athletic! and I only really starting getting boobs as I gained weight so naturally assumed I would lose them as I lost weight! I accepted my shape now though so just curious as to see what I might be looking forward to after all the jiggly bits and problem areas are gone!

    I've gone from body-pillow shape, to ironing-board shape, to somebody-shrink-wrapped-a-dozen-wire-coat-hangers-in-the-vague -shape-of-a-human shape, haha!

    In all seriousness, I've never had any curves at all. I've either been all bulgy and puffy at my heaviest, or very bony and angular (hence the coat hangers). I've got some great muscle tone now, but I'm still built like a yardstick. A RIPPED yardstick, mind you, but still... :tongue:

    If I could pick any shape for myself, it would definitely be hourglass.

    Quite honestly I never understood why the hourglass shape was so popular! Yes, yes, yes I am one and I'm not unhappy far from it lol its just I always found it curious as to why so many women wanted to have that particular shape! I suppose at the end of the day we all just need to work with what we have!
