Sorry to burst your bubble, you're a pear not an hourglass...
Don't you love it when people tell you things about your own body. Your legs could do with toning up, wow your boobs look massive, are you sure you want to wear that? I've heard a million of them but being told I don't know my own body shape, well that was new!
It's true I'm quite a hippy girl, I have a big bum and my thighs are not in proportion with the rest of my body but I also have large breasts, broad shoulders and a narrow waist. Mix that all together and you guessed it, I'm an hourglass.
I've been this shape since my early teens and whether I lose weight or gain my overall shape never changes. I can't say I've always loved my body or even that I like it at the moment - recent events have put me on a fast food binge with a complete exercise phobia - but I do know my shape.
If I was ever in doubt of my body shape, wedding dress shopping confirmed it 100%. Every shop assistant I met told me my figure was an hourglass and my dress measurements gave me a waist more than 10 inches smaller than my hips and bust!
So, thank you anonymous commenter but I'm afraid your mistaken, I am an hourglass and very proud of it!
