Default The Pear Ratio

OK...this might be silly..but I've always been curious. I adore very pear shaped women and have always thought that it is fun to find out what someone's Hips measure versus their waist. Then I thought last night...hmmm
that makes a Pear Ratio
So here goes:
My Hips are about a 40
My Waist is about a 38
So my pear Ratio (hips/waist) is 1.05

LOL..sorry if this seems lame...just curious to see what everyone else measures if they want to try. If not..that's cool too

I'm a big bellied supersized pear. I'm not sure what my current measurements are. I am sure that have increased, though, because I'm much fatter now. I've gained 15 pounds in the past month. I love being a gaining FAT SSBBW! I'll have to have my feeder take my new measurements. I out grew that little 60" tape measue long ago. I'm going to stuff my fat belly with a whole large pizza and chocolates and then have him spoon feed me at least a pint of ice cream before I allow him the pleasure of taking my measurements! He's going to be happy! He's also going to weigh me on the new bariatric scales I purchased!

Let me see... 28 waist, 42 inch hips...

I think that's about -0.7, but my maths is bad.

I have a 40 inch bust though, so I'm not a pear.

Usually, the hip to waist ratio is calculated W/H; waist divided by hips.
So a 38" waist divided by 40" hips = a ratio of .95
It's an inverse ratio, the smaller the number, the more pear-shaped you are.
lemmink, your math is good, actually a .67 ratio. I'm liking those numbers!

I once saw a personal ad for a guy looking for a waist/hip ratio of point-something or other or bigger. Or smaller, however it works. He actually put the number in the paper! Like...come with me, my little .68 dove...

It was years ago, but last time I checked my waist and hips, the numbers were the same. -_- Maybe it's different now.

Wrong.

Do your math.

The less disparity between the numerator and the denominator, the less difference there will be. Therefore, the result will be a large decimal. For example:

W/H

29/41 = .71
30/41 = .73
40/41 = .98
41/41 = 1


If you're looking for an impressive pear shape, you're looking for the decimal to be small.

So, I gotta ask, how would the lovely lady in this clip be regarded, a pear or super pear?

I have watched a lot of shows on the Discovery channels about the science behind attraction and all the trappings therein, and this is actually something they talked about. Apparently, the ideal ratio is .7 if you divide waist into hip. This holds true all across the board- from Kate Moss to Marilyn Monroe to the Venus de Milo (who has a 40" hip measurement btw)- they are all right at .7 or very near to it, and research has shown that to be the most pleasing ratio to the eye.

Mine is .81 (43/53) If only I were more hip-y

What is ideal??
I think the ideal is difference for everyone. Another example of people who try to make us believe you need to have a .7 ratio, or else you don't fit this world.
P.s. Ava: You look gorgeous with your less hip and more waist; beauty

55/77, which makes my ratio .7 - pretty cool!

Guess I'm the next Venus De Milo? LOL

If you do hips/waist instead, my ratio is 1.4. You really can't correlate hip size to this ratio, guys - I think 77 inch hips are plenty large, and 22 inches of difference DEFINITELY makes me a pear. And yet, I don't meet the 1.5 you're looking for? Hmmm...

Who is looking for numbers, right BBM? You are quite amazing at 1.4 though, lol, but numbers are not relevent. It's the lady herself that counts

HEy, even if by some guys standards you don't meet their vision of the perfect pear, you still fit the best description of a BBW, or possible SSBB, you do seem border line and I've alwayshad trouble how tell between the two unless its blantantly obvious.
To say the least, if Discovery says its a .7 ratio, then its gotta be true, I mean, its frickin Discovery, how often are they wrong?

Hee hee hee, borderline? I'm 450 pounds. That's not borderline in anybody's book, as far as I know. I'm definitely an SSBBW. Let me put it this way - when you can't buy clothes in brick & mortar stores anymore (including Catherine's, Lane Bryant, etc.) chances are good you're an SSBBW.

That's only my opinion.

Awww, thanks GPL. Yeah, me thinks I'm defending my measurements a LITTLE too vehemently. Time to get out of this thread, I think. Thanks for the reality check.
