Many of you have asked me to share with you some celebrities who have similar body shapes to yours (so you can get some style inspiration). Now in Hollywood ‘very thin’ is common due to the pressures put on celebrities so there is less variety in body shapes. But here are some celebrities who may have body shapes that relate to yours.

Thank you for the examples.It is really helpful to see. I would have thought that some of the ladies would have been different that what you have labeled them and after looking and comparing them I can see it better.
Another great post!
Could you please explain hos these shapes compare to the “myshape” shapes? “Myshape” tells me I’m a M shape. It looks like something between the H and the X so I can´t really figure what shape I should focus on.
Tank you. /Laura
Livet – an M from My Shape looks like an X as there is a defined waist and shoulders and hips are similar in width, plus it curves gently.
Ooh, excellent tutorial. Thanks!
The photos are so helpful! Is the difference between I and H limited to the absence of a defined waist?
Kellygirl – The I is very slim, and usually has a longer torso. The H tends to have a shorter waist, look more boxy and is not a slim.
That’s fascinating. I didn’t know there were that many. I’ll have to think about which one I am. . . you are so good at what you do!
Its funny, I can see my pre-baby shape in Anne Hathaway’s H-shape. I’m still that shape, just with a curvier behind (which I like) than I used to, and a bit of a baby pooch (don’t like, but don’t think its going away!).
Thanks for the post!
Imogen, can you have a belly and be a A shape — is a A a pear shape???
I am soooooo confused!!!
Thank you Imogen, you’re fab!
I’m still pretty sure I’m an 8 shape.
I’m quite short waisted, and my spine dips right in at the small of the back, and curves out again (my mother always called me ‘sway backed’) – is this more likely to belong to an 8 or an X?
Maria – thanks!
CB – at least you’re seeing yourself, a bit of a pooch and some extra bottom won’t change your shape too much.
Lady Jicky – A Shape is a Pear. You can have a stomach with any shape! But if your stomach is wider than your hips/shoulders you’re probably an O shape.
Jamtart – a sway back is often an X, there is a ‘feel’ difference between an 8 and an X – if you feel the back of your hips, sliding your hand down from your waist to your bottom, does it slide smoothly or do you have a ‘shelf’ hip? Is the widest part down low on your thighs, or high up on your buttocks? X is low, 8 is high (look at the shapes of the letter/number as a visual).
I definitely don’t have a shelf – and I definitely feel a slope down from my waist to thighs – so I’m an X after all!
Thank you do much for answering my interminable questions, Imogen ♡
Well it sounds like I am a pear.
Aha! Going through the archives on this blog, I finally realized that I am an H, why empire waists look good on me, and that I shouldn't wear belts at my waist. If I had known this years ago I would have saved a lot of money not buying clothes like that!
I think I finally figured me out! 36″ shoulders, 35″ bust, 26.5″ waist, 40″ hips (more in the butt and saddlebags- NO shelf) but with visibly wide shoulders from front view- I’m definitely an X with V tendencies.
Interesting! Cameron Diaz used to be an “I” shape this summer, but now appears to be “V.”
Seems like the only short-legged “I” shape is Keira Knightly. Thanks, Imogen!
