Body shape has a lot to do with the way you look, but for some people, it’s a more important aspect of their personality than how their shape appears.
For others, it can also be a factor in how their body looks.
For some people with the “flat” or “flat face” this is the most important thing about their body shape, says Dr. Linda Linnin, a lecturer in clinical nutrition and exercise science at the University of Oxford.
For them, it has to do much more than a shape or shape alone.
“In the case of flat faces, they are usually quite thin and their shoulders and chest are usually relatively short and not quite rounded,” she says.
“For pear shaped bodies, the main difference is the curvature of the neck, which can make the body look wider.
It’s not the shape of the body but the curvatures of the nose and mouth that really make a difference.”
Some people have been known to have flat faces for decades, says Linnen, and “it’s a trait that has been widely shared throughout society.”
For others it can be a matter of personality, says Prof. Martin Smith, professor of dietetics at the Department of Nutrition at the Royal Veterinary College in London.
“People with flat faces are often shy and reserved, so they don’t often speak up and talk about their feelings,” he says.
“For them, the most useful trait is their lack of outward display of emotions.
They might not say, ‘I’m feeling lonely’ or ‘I don’t like the weather,’ but they are very reserved.”
Linnin says pear shaped people tend to have a more open personality, while “flat faces” tend to be reserved and self-confident.
“There is something about having this expression of personality that is very, very natural,” she adds.
“Some of the traits that people who have flat and pear shaped faces share are openness, openness to others, a kind of feeling of humour and a kind, humour-free personality.
This gives a kinder and gentler personality.”
The most common problem with pear shaped and flat faces is the “deeper jaw,” says Lindon, which is the protrusion of the jaw at the top of the skull, and can make it difficult for people to get their heads through their eyes.
“It’s quite difficult to have this deep jaw and this chin, so people with these features can be quite shy and quiet.”
Another common problem is that pear shaped or flat faces have a tendency to appear thinner than flat faces.
This is because pear shapes tend to form a more rounded jaw and thinner chin.
“But these are just differences in proportions.
A pear shaped face is not as rounded as a flat face,” Linnan says.
This also means pear shaped shapes are often “too broad,” meaning the face is too large for the mouth to reach out to.
“If you’re a pear shape, this can cause a very wide mouth, which may be awkward for some mouth shapes,” she explains.
Some pear shaped women can also have “girly” features, which makes them appear more feminine.
Linnins is interested in these types of features and has found that some women have them.
“They can be very attractive,” she observes.
However, there are other characteristics that make pear shaped men and women different, says Smith.
“There are things in their bodies that can make them seem like a more masculine or a more feminine body, but also things that make them appear like a less masculine or less feminine body,” he explains.
One of the most obvious differences is that a pear-shaped man has a longer torso than a flat man.
This could be a result of the shape and the amount of hair on the body, or a result, Smith says, of the way the person’s facial muscles work.
Another characteristic that some people have is the way their skin looks.
“Some people find that their skin is more soft, or more like a pear than a plain white skin, and so they can have more skin exposed to the sun,” says Smith, adding that the more exposed skin on a person’s body, the more susceptible they are to sun damage.
“So if they have darker skin, they can develop skin cancer.”
But if you have pear shaped features, you don’t necessarily have to be more masculine to look attractive, Linnine says.
Linsins says “pear-shaped” and “pearl-shaped bodies” are also attractive.
“It’s not that the shape is necessarily feminine,” she points out.
“A pear shaped person has more rounded eyes, a bigger nose, a thinner face, and a broader chin.”
This also makes the face appear more rounded, so a pear and a plain skinned person could be very similar, says Sivani Sridhar, professor and chair of the department of
