If you've recently been out shopping for jeans, dresses, or anything else, you've probably noticed that sizing has tremendously changed — thank the stars! These days, fashion has been made wise to the fact that we don't like being measured by numbers alone and that shopping by fit tends to yield better results. From more technical terms like ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph to more accessible words like pear, diamond, and round, knowing what body type you are can help you know exactly what to wear. While body types usually come from your line of genetics, there are a lot of traits associated with each variety. Sometimes, your cravings and your diet can also indicate the body type your brilliant mind has been lucky enough to have.

Body types according to science

The University of Houston released a new kind of body type study in the 1940s. Rather than relying on terms like "apple" or "pear" to describe each body type, researchers took it to another level. After an extensive study, they published their findings, concluding that the human body falls into three basic categories — ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph. Given the name Somatotypes, here's what each one of them means. The ectomorph body type is long and lean with little fat or muscle. Mesomorphs are solid and built for rowdy sports, and endomorphs have lots of body fat and are prone to easily gaining weight. As we're sure you can see, this theory leaves a lot of room for interpretation and covers many body types under one umbrella. What's the easiest way to tell your body type? Look in a mirror and realize how fabulous you are without labeling yourself with a type.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
