If you're dating a special lady who is "pear-shaped"...well no longer! She is now considered a "Matisse". By renaming female body types, women's advocates hope to banish negative stereotypes associated with using fruit.
The new system uses the names of famous artists who idolized women.
I'm all for it, but a drawback to such names is they don't actually describe in visual terms what women's bodies look like. Such simplicity seems necessary for adoption by the mass population.
Like if a man buys lingerie, the sales rep might ask "Is your wife a Matisse?" and he'll be like, "Huh?" and then she'll be forced to explain, "It means pear-shaped."
On the other hand, using the old masters successfully conveys a sense of appreciation.
Here is their new system:
Pear-shaped = "Matisse"
Apple-shaped - "Ruben"
Full Bust/Bottom - "Rembrandt"
Slim = "Da Vinci"
Athletic = "Raphael"read more
