Apple Body Shape

There are two types of apple.

  • The apple is rounded but not necessarily over weight
  • She carries most of her weight in her mid section, giving her a less defined waist and slimmer arms and legs
  • Her rib cage and back are reasonably broad
  • She has a wide waist-line due to being over weight or from child birth

Apple 1

  • Her waist measures 2” or more than her bust or hips
  • She has a flat bottom and slim legs
  • Her hips are usually wide and full like her waist
  • She may also carry weight on her chest, giving her broad shoulders and a substantial bust
  • Her waist is undefined

Apple 2

  • Her bust, waist and hips are very close in measurements.
  • She has little waist definition.
  • She may have a large bust.
  • She has narrow hips (similar to the strawberry, but her midsection is fuller).
  • She has slim limbs.
