Can anyone help me work this out on a cloudy Sunday? I think it would help me with buying clothes. I'm tending towards hour glass but not sure.
I have straight quite delicate shoulders, tend towards big bust 34dd at the mo but have been f. No matter how slim I am I always have boobs, bum and slight tummy. But my waist isn't particularly small. There is a lot of definition between my bum and lower back though.
When I was younger and slimmer I got a lot of compliments about my lovely shape. Now though, I could do with losing a few pounds, so have slight love handles and flabby belly. Any ideas what shape this is? Don't want to post a pic but will pm one if requested!

Easiest way to work out is to take measurements of shoulders, boobs, natural waist and hips.

An hourglass shape is actually very uncommon and requires particular ratios. Boob and hips must be practically equal with waist at least 25% smaller than both boobs and hips.

I very much doubt I would be that, so a rectangle maybe?
