To women with pear-shaped bodies: Feel bad about yourselves! Your body is weird and unnatural! So weird and unnatural that you need extra padding to balance out your disgusting figure!

i have a very pear shaped body. my hip bones are naturally larger than the rest of my bone structure. and i have a smaller chance of ever getting breast cancer. :) so to all you girls out there under weight, go eat a damn burger. you look like a stick of celery. :) and better educate yourselves before making crude remarks to those more endowed than yourself.

"Anonymous:" how is making rude comments about women who aren't as "endowed" as you ANY better than them making comments about your body shape?

Also, I don't know how you come to the conclusion that you have less risk of breast cancer. Women with small breasts are as likely as women with larger breasts to develop breast cancer. Further, if you get your wide hips from your mother, I'd suggest looking into the link between your mother's hip width and your breast cancer risk. "better educate yourself before making crude remarks to those [different from] yourself"

this is quite frankly offensive, and actually in studies shown, men have actually been proven to like curvier girls compared to anorexic little girls>? you have no right to tell people their body shape is un-natural. No matter how little/much a pear shaped women eats, her hip/waist ratio will stay the same. Every woman is unique, just because some people don't have the 'model' shape does not mean that skinny girls are more attractive. to be honest your face probably looks like a bum. And if not, clearly your personality sucks. so good luck in life.

"Anonymous" I believe your comment is slanderous to people with a naturally slim body, I am also pear-shaped and have large hips, but I would never slate off another's body. Just because someone is slim doesn't mean they are necessarily happy, and comments such as "you look like a stick of celery" could really damage a persons body confidence. And as far as the breast cancer "fact" you stated, you couldn't be more wrong!!

Hey, anorexic isnt a body type, its a FUCKING MENTAL ILLNESS SO STOP USING IT AS A PN ADJECTIVE. And stop fucking body shaming thin or heavy girls, yo.

Just because someone has a pear-shaped body doesn't make them fat. There are plenty of girls that are skinny with this body type. Also, just because someone is skinny, it doesn't mean they are an anorexic. Grow up. The whole lot of you.
