Expressing Women`s Six Shapes

Butternut squash is the shape of one in five women, which signifies that their bust and hip sizes are the same but the waist is smaller by around 10 inches.

Examples of this shape are Kelly Brook and 'Mad Men' star Christina Hendricks, says a new poll.


Experts also found one in four British women are carrot-shaped, 23 per cent are pears and 18 per cent are apples.

Big-hipped aubergines and busty broccolis scored less than six per cent each.

The survey, for the Vitality Show - from March 22 to 25 at London's Earls Court - studied 3,000 volunteers, the Sun reported.

Singers Jennifer Hudson and Kerry Katona are a typical apple shape. The waist is equal to or larger than the hips and bust and there is only 2-4 inches difference between all three.

Lindsay Lohan and TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson are broccolis wherein the bust is the widest part and hips and waist are about the same size.

Hollywood A-listers Cameron Diaz and Nicole Kidman fall under the carrot category with bust and hips wider than the waist but only by about 6-8 inches.

Pear shaped women have a waist that is at least 10 inches smaller than their hips but the bust isn't as large as the bum.

Famous pears are Jennifer Lopez or 'Sex and the City' star Kristin Davis.

Clare Richards from Steps and Adele are aubergine-shaped as their bust is the smallest measurement and hips the largest. The waist size lies between the two.
