You are a body shape 1 if your waist is less defined and blends into your hips. You typically gain weight first around your middle. Your hips may extend only slightly, and your bottom is fairly flat instead of round. You may have previously worn a straight type of pant or believe you have more of a boyish figure. Your fullness is carried right under your waist and you may have a tummy. Your waist could be larger than your hips.
