I'm an apple.

When I think of an apple, I think of a perfectly round fruit ... no real shape or form ... just round.

Well, according to, and their three-question-questionnaire, I am shaped like an apple.

A perfectly round apple. Just when I was thinkin' I wasn't lookin' that bad, and maybe I could eat those danishes I won from The Wixom Zoo, I gotta hear I'm shaped like a dumb apple.

Here were the three scientific questions asked to calculate my shape:

1. I splurge and eat a whole chocolate cake. It goes:
a. everywhere
b. abdomen (my choice)
c. hips and thighs
d. nowhere
e. on my curves
f. to building my muscles (huh?)

2. I love my:
a. tiny waist
b. sexy arms and legs (I had to pick one ... not sure about the arms though)
c. muscles everywhere
d. chest
e. overall-thinness (which the site misspelled as thiness ... what scientist created this? Obviously one who failed Spelling.)

3. Words that describe my body:
a. voluptuous
b. willowy
c. muscular
d. rubenesque (No clue what that means)
e. hourglass (picked this one out of process of elimination ... not sure that's what it is. A little chunky was not an option.)


Lovely limbs. You have thinner legs and arms, accompanied by fullness through the ribs and stomach.

Style icon: Catherine Zeta-Jones (If she's an apple, I'm happy to be one.)

Style tips: Look for clothing that accentuates your legs and arms. Loose-fitting waists, empire waists, short sleeves and knee-length skirts are best for you.

But, I have a relatively small waist, just a little tummy issue. I NEED to accentuate the waist and not the tummy.

Here's the six dresses I'm to wear:

One thing I don't understand is how none of these models look like an apple to me.

Too long for my (ahem) 5'3" (not 5'2 1/2" or 5'2 1/4") frame. Gotta have it at or above the knee. Bet you didn't consider that, did you, shabby apple?
So, if you're shaped like an apple, you should show no definition and your dress should jiggle all around your round figure?
This one I like ... definition to waist and length great for shorties.
This is for those of us that are Granny Smith apples.
I actually have a dress similar to this. Love it.
This one's very cute too.
If you'd like to also undergo this proven test of body shape you can head over there and take the test. The clothes are pretty cute. Some are kinda pricey, but they do have a sale going on.

Good ole pear here...dumb pears. I think I like the fruit of the spirit better ;)

It's too early for me to look like a piece of fruit. I think I'll pass on the test for today.

If those women are apples, they're missing a few bites. Look more like apple cores to me.

I took the test and blogged about it!!!LOL

Great post. Miss you guys!!

Pencil. That's code for flat-chested. Every dress recommended for me should "simulate fullness in the bust area" or "pull attention away from the chest".

Rachel said...

I'm going to have to go do this and blog it. I would have NEVER thought you were an apple! You're so petite!

Do they have a category for watermelon? Because I think that's what fruit I resemble the most. :)

Sara@I.Sass said...

Can I be Cottage cheese? Is that even on the list? I'm lumpy and bumpy. And saggy in places, where there really is nothing to sag.
Maybe I am a pear, but it's definatly moving. You know up. I naturally have small breast, but since I've gained weight they have gained um, ground. Bodies are just weird. I just REALLY want my glorified one NOW. because then I wouldn't have to worry about cottage cheese, and apples and pears, I'd just be glorified.

You are so funny-apple figures could not wear dresses with cinched in waists! I agree-apple cores are more like it.
Whoever wrote the quiz is a fruitcake!

BaronessBlack said...

Well whaddaya know! I'm a pear!
Their dresses are very pretty though, but none of their models look life the shapes they're supposed to be resembling! Hmmm!

Tammy said...

Yea, I took their not-so scientific survey and I'm proud to announce that I am no longer pear shaped as I thought. I am "athletic" *cough*

What, you don't want X?!

Ok fine, you can have L!

I'm off to see what fruit I am. Can't wait. Heh.
