    slight hourglass, erring on the side of inverted triangle. In my experience these women seem the most confident and at ease with themselves.

    Supposedly pear or hourglass from a mainstream medical perspective for lowered risk of metabolic syndrome and better cardiovascular health. I don’t have anything scientific to back that claim so I’d be interested to know if it’s true myself. It was what we were taught in school but I’m sure not everything we were taught was correct. I know plenty of women who seem healthy with all the different body shapes.

    Yeah, but it follows the same logic as high PUFA being healthy. And in fact, lower body fat stores are naturally higher in PUFA.

    True, that’s why I’m somewhat skeptical. I’d like it to be true though since I’m hourglass-slightly pear....

    good points, it's not a science but i hear that curvy women have higher estrogen so that's a pear shape, pear is often mistaken for hourglass and they both accumulate fat in the lower body so i don't know the hormonal difference between them and hourglass shape is rare, pear also have smaller feet and have a more pretty face, i do not know if estrogen or progesterone is what makes the face attractive (feminine facial features).
    i also saw that females who have prominent cheekbones seem more balanced and have a good fat distribution.
    maybe @Hans can add something here.

    Higher estradiol:testosterone was associated with increased facial attractiveness among women.
