The 7 Different Body Shapes Of The Modern ManWritten by Gareth Healey in Men's Style on May 23rd, 2014
We’ve done a bit of research into body shapes of the modern British man. Talking to hundreds of men across the country, we asked them to tell us about their figures and from that we discovered 7 very different body shapes.
The 7 Different Body Shapes Of The Modern Man
1) The Pear A little bit larger around the middle.
Celebrity examples: Michael McIntyre & Ricky Gervais
2) The Nacho Broad shoulders and slim waistline.
Celebrity examples: Tom Daley
Celebrity examples: Andrew Flintoff
Celebrity examples: Robbie Williams
Celebrity examples: Eamonn Holmes
Celebrity examples: Bradley Wiggins
Celebrity examples: Robbie Coltrane & James Corden
The most common was the Pear, with almost half (49%) of those asked describing themselves as this shape – a little larger around the middle, while 15% said they were straight up and down like a Cucumber and only 4.3% describing themselves as a String Bean or a Snowman.
Surprisingly, men felt similar about their bodies with almost three quarters of those asked admitting they hated their body and almost half saying they needed to lose weight. Our research also found that men felt at their physical best at aged 28 with almost half saying at that age they had the perfect shape for their age and felt most comfortable in their bodies.
