Results from our waist to hip ratio calculator above will indicate your body shape, with the results having slightly differing meanings for men and women.
For men, if you result is less than 1 and for women if your result is less than 0.85, this signifies a healthy body shape.
If you see results above 1 and 0.85 you are an “apple” shape (you carry more weight around your waist than round your hips).
If you are “pear” shaped you carry excess weight around your hips and lower body. You are also less likely to suffer from heart disease and cardiovascular problems due to less stress on the heart.
