Quote  |  Reply

which would you rather be and why? an apple, or a pear?

personally i'd rather be an apple (having most of the bodyfat in the tummy) because i happen to think it looks kinda cute.

what about you?

Pear... because extra weight in the hips and thighs is very feminine and I think clothing shopping would be easier/more forgiving.

But this is all hypothesis.. how good I looked would depend on how I took care of whatever shape I had.

I've worked hard to go from a bit of a pear to an hourglass. I'm not going back. Cool

That being said, though, I was always happy to be a pear over an apple because I've cultivated major abs, baby. :) I've aways loved my flat, defined stomach. I think it's easier to be curvy as a pear than as an apple, too. And I suppose most important of all, the health risks are supposedly fewer for pears based on recent studies.

I think, though, that with the proper eating habits and exercise, a figure-appropriate wardrobe, and most important, confidence, a person can rock whatever body they have.

HOURGLASS ;]

 

LOL.

 

J/K IF I HAD TO CHOOSE IT REALLY WOULD BE HOURGLASS OR PEAR.

A mix.  Like not overly apple but notoverly pear.

Look at my apple tummy in my gallery, that is not cute girl. LOL! It looks disgusting. 

Pear, because apple is worse for your health.

Of course, if you aren't overweight, it doesn't really matter because you'll be healthy either way.

I happen to be a MAJOR apple (my WHR is almost 1, no matter what my weight is). It's nice having long slender legs, but I still wish I were a pear for health reasons.
Is it sad that when I read the title of this post I thought "hmm, well both are good, but pears have slightly more calories...." :p

I have a pear shape, and I quite like it. I'd just like to have a smaller pear!!
Lol! @t "hmm, well both are good, but pears have slightly more calories...." :p" -Jeff

I laughed so hard, thank you.

i wish i has a pear shape, but i think i might be a apple :[

i noticed that people with pear shape have a pretty flat tummy, but hold there weight in there hips/thighs, witch i think looks feminine and curvy.

Banana!!!

 

 

 

JK :P

 

Pear 100% Smile

How can you tell if you're an apple or a pear? My tummy sticks out quite a bit, but my hip measurements are definitely bigger than my waist measurements, so I'm not sure which I am. If I could choose I'd want to be a pear because I'd love to have those curves!

I am indeed an hourglass. Whee! A pear no more. Laughing (But hey, being a small pear wasn't bad, either. There's nothing wrong with that.)

It says there that hourglass shapes may live the longest. Huh. I wonder if that is really true.

Huh! Surprised

Whad'ya know? I didn't know that, either. But, yeah, I guess there does have to be a "straight" shape.

Huh. So all this time I thought I was an apple, but it turns out I'm just a thick banana with a huge rack. (I don't gain weight in the arms or shoulders, especially, and my waist is more than 75% of my chest, even with said rack).

Thanks for the enlightenment! :)

per my measurements..i'm a banana/straight...I guess thats code for overall just big? :D

 

 

We're all just a giant yummy fruit salad! Laughing

Although I hate my gut, I'd rather it than a huge ass and thighs. If weights not an issue, than I still wouldn't want to be pear because I don't want wide hips. I'm curious to see how I look once the belly and love handles are gone and waist goes in, maybe I won't be so stick shape.

I am acutally not a fan of apple or pear shaped to my body.
With my chest, I am acutally more of a hourglass figure: )

Im the banana shape...lol...whoda thunk it...lol
