What is your Height?
What is your Weight?
In comparison to other women, your body generally ...

Don't compare yourself to men, as they tend to run warmer than women anyway.
Just think about you and your friends and how you react to weather changes.
Check out the details in each question if you're unsure how to answer.

You can select multiple answers if you are unsure (Max: 2)
has trouble warming up in the cold and needs warm or hot temperatures to feel normal
Additional info
This is what you'd answer if you almost always have cold hands and feet and need to be in a room that practically feels like a sauna to others just to feel normal. These are the people who generally have aversions to air conditioners or would have their hat scarf and gloves in the late fall when most people are still only in jackets.
can adapt to any temperature easily with the right clothes
Additional info
This is what the majority of people would answer. Feeling cold in extreme winter and hot in extreme summer is normal.
often feels hot or has trouble cooling down in the heat and needs cool weather or breeze to feel good
Additional info
This is what you'd select if you tend to run hot and can't live without air conditioner in the summer and are probably one of the first people to get rid of the hat, scarf, gloves and jacket in the spring when others may still choose to cover up.
Make a circle around your dominant wrist with your other hand's thumb and middle finger. Without squeezing hard or forcing anything, the middle finger and thumb…
You can select multiple answers if you are unsure (Max: 2)
overlap for sure - I can cover at least half the nail of my middle finger with my thumb
touch easily - I can make my middle finger and thumb touch without squeezing my wrist
barely touch or leave a gap
Bend your dominant arm to squeeze your muscle to make your bicep flex. Your arm should now be at a 90 degree angle. How many fingers can you easily (without squishing) put between your elbow crease or crook and the initial bulge of your bicep (where the tendon stops)?

With your arm bent, put your fingers on the inner part of your elbow and feel for that cable-like tendon. It’s what attaches your upper arm muscle to the bone of your forearm. This tendon is what we’re trying to measure.

Now flex your arm like a body builder, squeezing your muscle hard. Keep your fingers on that cable-like tendon and start moving your fingers just a little bit up the arm. Feel for where that tendon stops and the bicep muscle starts. It’s usually just a few centimeters away from the elbow’s bend.

So making sure that you’re flexing hard while your arm is up at a 90 degree angle (like the corner of a box), see how many fingers (if any at all) can fit easily in that space along the tendon between the elbow’s bend and the beginning of your bicep muscle.

If you have an extra layer of fat in the arm, feel through the soft tissue to where the hard muscle is underneath (Yes! We all have bicep muscles!)

Don’t squish as many fingers in as possible but measure what fits easily.

Your left and right arm should be similar, so if one side is hard to figure out, try the other.

This doesn’t measure how strong you are or how much you work out. It just measures the length of that cable-like tendon.

You can select multiple answers if you are unsure (Max: 2)
None, or possibly just 1
1, maybe 2 could fit
2 for sure
Definitely 3, potentially more
Your body tends to look like which shape in the mirror?

Think about how you look right now, not how you did in the past or how you'd like to be one day. The shape of the body can change with time because of hormones, lifestyle, pregnancy, age, or any number of factors, so it's important to look at how you are now. Remember, you're beautiful no matter what shape you are!

You can select multiple answers if you are unsure (Max: 3)
Apple - tend to maintain slender legs but not slender arms. Extra weight would mostly accumulate on the belly, chest, back and arms, making the lower body look much leaner than the upper body.
Additional info
Women can be apple-shaped, whether they are underweight or overweight, young or old. In fact, many women once had an hourglass shape and with age and possibly children, the waistline grew to a new body shape. What the apple shape tends to have is a thick waist line and mass on the chest, back and arms but leaner legs than the upper body, making shorts, skirts and babydoll dresses look quite flattering.
Full Hourglass - tend to gain in the upper and lower body but still maintain a visibly smaller waistline than the much wider hips and shoulders
Additional info
The hourglass figure involves having a much narrower waistline that the broad shoulders and wide hips. Many of the images seen online about hourglass figures aren't very hourglass at all as the waistline doesn't come in.
Pear - almost all extra weight is put only around the hips and thighs with just a bit on the belly, making the upper body, shoulders and arms look much leaner than the lower body with curvy hips and saddle bags
Additional info
The pear shape is best recognized by the significantly narrower upper body and the much larger, wider hips. The arms and chest are much leaner than the glutes and thighs.
Even - tend to be on the lighter side, buying small or medium size clothing, maintaining a slender or athletic figure with weight evenly distributed or just a little extra in the belly.
Additional info
Women who have an even shaped body have the shoulders, waist and hips nearly aligned, but tend to be on the leaner or athletic side with hip and collar bones often visible.
Full-figured - tend to be on the heavier side with extra weight gained evenly in the upper, middle and lower body, making large size clothing feel like a good fit.
Additional info
The full-figured woman tends to gain weight evenly all over her body (on the arms, legs and midsection). She often struggles to lose weight, as her body naturally likes to maintain her large shape.
Think back to when you were about 7 or 8, were you...

Think back to those days when you were in school and compare the shape and size of your body to the other children of the same age.
Many people who are much bigger now than they were before, perceive their childhood shape as very lean and thin.
Similarly, many people who are currently lean perceive their childhood weight as well above normal.
But don’t compare your childhood weight to now. Compare your childhood shape to other children of the same age.

You can select multiple answers if you are unsure (Max: 2)
lightweight, skinny or lanky as a child? (weighing less than most kids your age)
very much in the normal range?
rather solid, average or even chubby as a child? (weighing more than most kids your age)
Compare the thickness of your legs to other women. Would you say your legs are...

Take a moment to look at your legs in the mirror.
Are they able to get thick and muscular or do they tend to stay lean and slender?
Don't compare your legs to your upper body but focus only on the thighs and calves.
Don't compare your legs to men, but focus on women who naturally have some fat on their thighs.
Select how your legs are now, not the way the once were or how you think they should be.

You can select multiple answers if you are unsure (Max: 2)
rather thick - lots of muscle or fat mass
quite average - can gain strong muscles but I don't have to focus too much on the legs to keep them lean
rather thin - lean legs that don't really gain much muscle
Which best describes the length of your legs?

Take a look at the picture and notice how leg length is very much related to overall height, but also the ratio between the bottom half and the top half.

You can select multiple answers if you are unsure (Max: 2)
Short - Generally under 5'3 (160cm) in height with an inseam of 30" (77cm) or less
Additional info
Women who are short in height could fall into this category, but not always. Short legs means the legs are born pretty short, not just that they look short and stubby because of fat mass.
Medium-Short - Average height between 5'2 (157cm) and 5'5 (165cm), and average leg length, or legs that look particularly short for your body (especially in the femur).
Additional info
Women who are average height could fall into this category if the legs tend to look short or have a short femur (thigh bone).
Medium-Long - You are between 5'3 (160cm) and 5'8 (173cm) in height and your legs look long for your body. If you have a long leg to torso ratio, then your legs are not short.
Additional info
Women who are medium-tall in height could fall into this category if the legs tend to look long or have a generally long femur (thigh bone). Usually, though not always, this could be paired with a short torso, making the legs look particularly long for the body.
Long - Generally over 5'6 (168cm) in height with an inseam of 32" (87cm) or more.
Additional info
Women who are generally tall in height could fall into this category if the legs tend to look quite elongated
