16. Please describe your body.

I am tall, sturdily built but fairly thin (140 lbs before pregnancy, currently 160). I wear the same de minimis makeup every day: lipstick, undereye concealer, blush (I tend towards paleness, so this is key) and brown mascara. I have very short blond hair cut crazy-fashion; I highlight this myself. My hair when longer was actually lovely, but I’m bad at “doing” hair and would rather eliminate bad hair days from my life entirely, something you can achieve with an excellent short haircut. I will be wearing this look when – if – I reach 80.

Most of my features are short and stocky! I have a larger than average breast size and wide hips, I have a defined waist, but my stomach isn't flat. I have somewhat broad shoulders, thicker arms, and strong, sturdy legs. Small shoe size, (I can actually wear kids shoes), but wide feet, a boys 3 is usually a perfect fit. Small hands, but thick fingers.

I am about 5 foot 2 with brown hair and brown eyes…I am slightly plump and curvy but I am currently working on toning my figure and possibly building some muscle.

I have two bodies, one in my mind and one in reality. The one in my mind is full of flaws; my thighs are too big, cellulite rich and veiny, my ass is too round, my stomach always bloated and overall I'm usually not pleased. Although I have done my best with it through exercise and tattooing to keep things colourful. My reality body is pretty normal, on the small side and relatively in shape, of course with meaningful and colour tattoos that really make it an exciting landscape bearing the story of my life in ink.

I would say I'm a very averagely tall-seeming white girl. My figure is completely vintage. I look like the kind of woman who could accomplish any task except for running long distances, and who wants to do that anyway? I can give you at least three children, and my body lets you know that I have always indulged myself in life’s pleasures.

5'7", 135lbs. Long torso and legs. Strong arms.

5-foot-5, generously proportioned in the chest area, hourglass shape, oval face, brown eyes, full lips, toffee-colored skin.

Cranky and achy the majority of the time because of my chronic illnesses. Size 12 or 14, depending on the brand. I have a large head and broad shoulders, but tiny hands, ears, and toes.

Tall-ish, pale, freckled, generally slim but also quite soft, I think!

I'd be called slim though a bit top-heavy. No hips or butt. Five foot 6 inches.

Average height and weight, blonde, blue eyes. Still, I’m not LA standard at all.

Naked I look like a Renaissance painting - pale with a nice little stomach pouch.

Tall, big boned, large breasted, but lean and long as well. When I gain weight, I am told I'm lucky, because I gain it in my breasts and it lands proportionally elsewhere. It looks ok to others, but I feel awful and I start to wear sack-like dresses.

Constantly evolving curves & muscles on a tall sturdy frame

I am short and skinny.

A little on the short side (5'5"), although not technically petite I can and do wear petite items sometimes. Average weight, on the curvy side (large bust for my frame). Moderately tattooed. And although I sometimes don't like the state of my stomach in the mirror, I gave birth to two babies! So there. Bless you, high waisted bikini trend.

Short, lean, strong.


I have nice wrists.

I'm a tall, lean brunette. After having a baby, I've surprisingly lost some of my curves.

I'm 5'4', relatively slender, with some curves in the right places. Just in the last year I've been noticing signs of aging - not in a bad way, but they're a reminder that I need to take care of my body.

Short, sturdy, energetic.

I am an American size two. I’m short and when I gain weight it all goes to my midsection—I guess I’m apple shaped. I have thin arms and legs. I have broad shoulders and no hips and a flat ass, which meant that for the longest time I had to buy my pants and jeans from the junior section.

I am of average height, pretty slim, though I carry some weight in my hips and thighs which I like. I have really big feet and hands, and my skin is fair which leads to a constant sunburn in the summer.

I’m tall 5’9” and thin (130 lbs), although I have a round butt and calves. Very flat chested. Very pale in the winter- freckly/ tanned in the summer.

How I perceive my body changes depending on my mood, sometimes I'm surprised to see it in the mirror, it looks so small and pale to be the vessel for all my wild feelings.

Twenty pounds too heavy. Most people would say I look good. But I am not quite thin enough to look good in my clothes, so I want to lose a little. I go up and down. I'm 43 now, so some of it is perimenopause hormonal bullshit. I have a few things I don't fit into right now which pisses me off.

However, my body is awesome. I'm a strong, swam around Governor's Island and under the Brooklyn Bridge, birthed 2 children vaginally (one at home), breastfed for 4 years total.

I’m petite. My breasts are small but proportionate. My legs are on the slim side, and I carry weight in my stomach and upper arms.

I am thin with a somewhat athletic build. My mother is a nutritionist and my father was an athlete. I feel lucky to have been given good genes and healthy habits.

I just helped a friend make a Match profile and this was one of the questions. They gave options, though, like Slender, Athletic and Toned, Curvy, etc. She didn't trust her own judgment or mine (as a female friend with similar anxieties as hers she figured I'd be too complimentary), so she texted an ex she's friends with and asked him what her body type was, typing in the options for him. He said Slender. We have similar bodies, so I'll say slender too. I like running and yoga, but I also eat a lot of snacks.
