You are still a small hourglass IMO

Eurasian: You could still be a pear, but I think you are probably a hourglass

I found an even better site to figure out your shape: www.myshape.com

You need to put in a lot of different measurements (not only bust, waist and hips) to figure out which shape you are closest to and there are seven shapes you can be.

You also need to sign up to the site, choose your style, what colours suit you and so on, but if you're really dying to know what shape you are, I guess it is worth it.

On that site I came out as a shape S (pretty much an hourglass).

My bust is 34DD, I have a waist of 27/28 and my hip is 39. Am I pear shape, hourglass or just petite?

Thanks!
I think you're pear shaped,hourglass depends more on the difference between rib cage- waist- hips,boobs aren't that important(despite the Hollywood idea big boobs doesn't make you curvy-Angelina Jolie often described as "Hourglass"is in fact a lollipop),try turning with you back in front of a mirror,if you look like hourglass than that's your shape,if you look peared shaped than that's it.You could be a pear with a full bust,at least what your measurements show me,you have big breasts,a small back and full hips.You don't necessarily have to fit that pattern to be pear shaped,for example a good friend of mine is clearly pear shaped but has great lookin ankles(despite what T&S say).
I've gained a couple of pounds and my measurements are 91-71()-92 so I don't have a difference of at least 10'(25 cm) between my waist and my hips but I still have an hourglass figure since all the weight went to my belly and not my waist.So measurements don't always reflect your shape.

Thanks a lot! That was very helpful. I think I am pear shaped as well. I guess thats why I had a hard time accepting that I am hourglass- because my measurement says I am hourglass, but when I look in the mirror, I feel like I am more of a pear shaped. But then I felt maybe I wasnt becuase of my double D breasts and it was known that pear shaped are smaller up there. But even though I am a DD my busts does not look that big, in fact, some have thought I was a C. But thanks again, it was very helpful! :-D

I used that site a while ago , I'm an S... I think.

I always get confused about where to measure my hips though. I know it's the widest part but some measure just above the abdomen which isn't the widest part on my body.

38-27-40

Yeah I'm not in proportion haha !
