Body Type Test (2020 Version)

Almost a year ago I made and published a post on how to figure out your Kibbe body type, and after receiving hundreds of comments on it with people asking for help on how to figure their body type, I’ve worked on improving the body type test.

This test works no matter what your gender or biological sex is. The questions about waist and hip shape have been modified a bit, and the bust question can be skipped.

WARNING: If you have gender dysphoria, body dysmorphia, or have struggled with eating disorders and you’re worried this test may be triggering for you, please don’t take it. Your boundaries and mental health are important, so don’t push yourself past your limits.

Instructions:

To start, make sure that you can properly analyze your body and bone structure when doing this test. This means you will either need a photograph of yourself or a mirror. Make sure that you’re wearing tight clothing or undergarments/swimsuit, so that you can see your underlying bone structure.

As a warning, glasses can distort the look of your face (especially cheekbones), so you may need to remove them when analyzing your face. High heels can distort the look of your bone structure.

If using a photograph of yourself, make sure the camera is at chest level, perpendicular to the ground, and placed far enough back for your entire body to be in frame. This will give the proper perspective of your body.

Make sure the camera is at chest height and a few feet away, so that you get an accurate picture of your proportions.

When recording your answers, make sure to keep things separated into the sections that are outlined in this test. It’ll make it easier for me to help you if you’re struggling with interpreting the results.

Remember to choose the answer that best describes your body.

I decided to omit the illustrations and pictures with this version of the test, as I’m worried that the illustrations I made could throw people off, since there are usually so many different examples for each answer.

If you’re looking for a test with pictures, try taking Aly Art’s version of the test on YouTube.

Bone Structure of the Body

Q1. How tall do you look?

(This isn’t about how tall you actually are. This is about how tall you look like you are, based on how large or small your head is in comparison to the rest of your body. If you’re having difficulty with this question, try taking a full-body picture of yourself and ask some friends if you look tall, moderate, or short in it.)

A) Quite tall
B) Slightly tall
C) Average height
D) Slightly short
E) Quite short or petite

Q2. What is the shape of your shoulders?

(Don’t compare your shoulders to your head, compare them to the rest of your body.)

A) Sharp and angular
B) Beveled and broad
C) Neither very sharp nor very rounded
D) Slender and rounded
E) Wide and rounded

Q3. How long do your arms look?

(This is about the bone structure of your arms, so ignore the shape of the flesh on your upper arms.)

A) Long and slender
B) Long and wide
C) Neither long nor short, evenly proportioned
D) Short and slender
E) Short and wide

Q4. How long do your legs look?

(This is about the bone structure of your legs, so ignore the shape of the flesh on your thighs.)

B) Long and wide
C) Neither long nor short, evenly proportioned
D) Short and slender
E) Short and wide

Q5. What best describes the shape of your hands?

A) Long and narrow
B) Long and broad
C) Not noticeably long or short, evenly proportioned

Q6. What best describes the shape of your feet?

A) Long and narrow
B) Long and wide
C) Not noticeably long or short, evenly proportioned
D) Small and narrow
E) Small and wide

Q7. What best describes the shape of your torso*?

(This question involves the flesh of the waist, but more importantly it involves the shape of the rib cage, which is why I decided to include it in the bone structure section.)

A) Long and narrow, slightly tapered
B) Long and wide (could be straight or thick depending on weight)
C) Balanced, neither noticeably long nor noticeably short (slightly defined if female)
D) Short and narrow (sharply defined if female)
E) Short and slightly wide (softly defined if female)

Q8. What best describes the shape of your hips*?

(This question involves the flesh of the hips, but more importantly it involves the shape of the hipbones, which is why I decided to include it in the bone structure section.)

A) Long, narrow, and slightly tapered
B) Long and wide (tapering into a V shape if male, or straight if female)
C) Balanced, evenly proportioned with the rest of your body
D) Short and soft (but slightly narrow)
E) Short, soft, and wide

Facial Bones

Q9. What best describes the shape of your jawline?

(Keep in mind the points at the corners of your jawline as well as the shape of your chin.)

A) Sharp and angular
B) Blunt and wide
C) Neither very sharp nor very rounded
D) Rounded and slender
E) Rounded and softly wide

Q10. What best describes the shape of your nose?

(It’s important to look at your nose in both profile and front view, as sometimes aquiline noses can appear slightly rounded at the tip when viewed from the front, even though they’re sharp in profile.)

A) Long and sharp
B) Wide and beveled
C) Neither sharp nor rounded, not very small or wide
D) Narrow and small
E) Rounded, perhaps softly wide

Q11. What best describes the shape of your cheekbones?

(Ignore what the shape of your cheeks are, and look at only the actual bone structure. The shape of the cheeks will be addressed later. If you’re having difficulty seeing the shape, you may need to feel the shape with your fingers.)

A) Prominent and sharp
B) Wide and beveled
C) Neither very sharp or very rounded
D) Narrow and rounded
E) Rounded and wide

Flesh of the Body

Q12. How would you describe your bust, in proportion to the rest of your body?

(This question can be skipped.)

A) Flat and taut
B) Widely spaced, not very prominent
C) Balanced, not noticeably small or large
D) Fairly large and soft
E) Quite prominent

Q13. How would you describe the flesh on your upper arms?

(If you carry a lot of weight on your arms, you may think the only answers that describe your arms are B or E, but look at the shape of the flesh – is it rounded or straight? And remember to consider your flesh in proportion to the rest of your body.)

A) Taut and straight
B) Wide and straight
C) Balanced, not very taut nor very soft
D) Soft and slender
E) Soft and wide

Q14. How would you describe the flesh on your thighs?

C) Balanced, not very taut or very soft
D) Soft and slender
E) Soft and wide

A) Straight, and narrow or close-set
B) Straight, and long or wide-set
C) Not very rounded or straight, not noticeable large or small
D) Slightly rounded or upturned
E) Large and rounded

Q16. What best describes the shape of your lips?

A) Thin and angular
B) Thin and straight
C) Not very full or thin, not very rounded or angular
D Full and slightly angular
E) Full and rounded

Q17. What best describes the flesh on your cheeks?

(Ignore your cheekbones and focus just on the flesh of your face. Smiling can help you determine if your cheeks tend towards angularity or softness.)

A) Taut and flat
B) Wide and muscular
C) Not very soft or tight
D) Soft but slender
E) Soft and wide, creates a rounded shape

Now that you have all of your answers written down, it’s time to move on to the results.

    1. Thanks for asking, Audrey! I’d say that because of that, they’re answer E. When trying to decide between two answers, I always prioritize the overall shape, so since they’re very sloped and rounded, they’re answer E shoulders.

  19. Hi Rebekah! I’m having a little trouble figuring out my body type. I have taken multiple tests and keep getting Theatrical Romantic, but it seems like my face is not quite as angular as the examples and I don’t think my waist is super defined. I don’t have broad shoulders but they are ‘coat hanger’ looking. I have a very short torso and I have extremely petite hands and feet and skinny arms/legs. Although my thighs and rear are very prominent (I’m part African haha). Looking at my body profile-view I look like I should be an hourglass, but frontal view I’m pretty sure I’d be considered rectangle. Profile I’m extremely curvy, but as far as I can tell on my own, not as much from the front.
    Also, I’m 5′ 4.5″ and 130lb, 34A bust

  20. Hi! (I may have already submitted, but couldn’t find my comment anywhere. Sorry if this is a repeat.)

    I think my bone structure tends to lean more broad but everything over that tends to be pretty soft/fleshy. That sounds like some kind of gamine, but I don’t think I’m that because I don’t look particularly “pixie-ish” or petite for my height (I’m 5’4”.)
    I tend to get comments that my arms/fingers look graceful/delicate even though they’re actually on the fleshier side, and usually people think I’m 1-2 inches taller than I am from pictures (idk if that’s enough to be significant.)
    Can you help me out a bit?

    Bone Structure

    1B

    -or C, if 1-2 inches isn’t enough to count

    2B

    3C

    -might be misjudging where midway down my legs is

    4B

    Flesh
    5D

    -might be misjudging my “hourglass-ness”; I’m mainly putting this because there’s sort of a defined “shelf” between my waist/hips no matter what weight I am. My waist isn’t too thin, though.

    6C
    
7E

    
8E

    9E

    Face
    
10E
    
-possibly C. My side profile is a lot stronger, vs. the front which is all roundness.
 All the pictures are from the front, though.
    11E
    
-My nose is wide, pretty small and quite rounded.
 Doesn’t seem to match any of them too well.
    12C

    -It was really hard to tell if my cheekbones were broad or rounded, so I went with C.

    13B
    
-Eyes are a bit on the narrow side and quite widely-spaced (moreso than any of the photos provided in the previous version of this test), but not particularly “straight.” Still, I thought B fit best.

  24. So, I’m a bit confused, I’m not sure whether I’d be soft gamine or a romantic type. I’m about 5’3 – 5’4, I have a thicker figure, and what other body type tests would call an “hourglass” figure: Shoulders and hips are wide (hips are wider, though) and a cinched in waist. My torso and legs are long, usually people say my torso seems longer than my legs, but I took a picture of myself for the test and that doesn’t seem to be the case. My head is small compared to my shoulders, but my shoulders aren’t that broad if compared to my body. I’m pretty soft everywhere except my face, which is angular with pronounced cheekbones and a “pointy” button nose? if that makes sense? My eyes are big but not doe like, they have been described as cat like. I have some soft cheek, but overall my face would be oval or heart shaped, not round.

  37. Hey Rebekah, thanks for dedicating the time to respond to our questions! I’m having trouble deciphering whether I am a romantic, soft classic, or something completely different! I am 5’5″ with a fairly large bust with a short waist, but it looks proportional to my hips. Here’s my results:

    bone structure:
    1C
    2C
    3D
    4C
    5E
    6D
    7E
    8C

    Facial bones:
    9D
    10E
    11D

    Flesh of the body:
    12E
    13D
    14D

    Facial features:
    15E
    16E
    17E

    Total:
    4C’s
    6D’s
    7E’s

  39. Hi Rebekah! I feel very frustrated with this test at this point haha, I have done it 3 times and I always get results that leave me unsatisfied with what I see in the mirror. The mayority of my results have a tendency of mayority of C’s and B’s. That could make me a natural or a classic, the last result was “dramatic classic” which I saw they were more sharp in the shoulders than me, they look more lean and longer than me. I always got compared by other people and I still see myself like this, with two celebs and they are not this types I mentioned. One of them is P!nk ( the singer ), except she looks like she works out alot and I don’t. And Kelly Osbourne when she was vegan.
    My last results are:
    A= 2 points.
    B= 4 points.
    C= 5 points.
    D= 2 points.
    E= 3 points.
    How I see My body shape and facts:
    I’m 5.4″
    Look normal for my height, not long or petite either.
    My breasts are small 34a, a tiny bit of waist, a little bit of hips, and and average/ small butt. Not curvy like Beyoncé but not boxy either. But if you ask me if I see myself more in the ying or the yang, I say yang a little bit more.

  40. Hi Rebekah,

    I took the test and here are my results:

    Bone structure: ACDDCDCC
    Facial bones: DCD
    Body flesh: ADD
    Facial Features: BAA

    My bone structure is mostly moderate with slightly shorter upper arms and legs, more fleshy/wide at the bottom. I’m 170 cm but look taller (very long vertical line). My face though is very small and narrow, no prominent bones/jawline with taut flesh and widely spaced eyes – but not rounded at all. I’m still confused, maybe you can help me 🙂
