Others have been able to get help on this, so I though I might ask, too[:I]
I have always assumed I am a short torso, long leg body type--but thought I might ask the professionals for clarification. This way, when asked what my sign is, I can confidently say ST/LL or Combo/with ST tendancy or whatever.
Anyway, I have tried to follow measuring instructions, and get between 1 and 1.5 inches as rib-hip. And my ankle-knee and knee to hip joint are around 16-16.5" each. I try to be consistent, but have measured several times and keep getting slightly different numbers.
I tend to gain weight in my upper body-hip pads, back, bust, upper arms and tummy. Lower legs and arms are usually pretty thin looking even when I am 30 pounds overweight. And I definitely have the short torso issue of not much room for organs, and not being able to get my waist cinched in even with lots of ab/torso work.
According to my understanding of T's info, I believe I am a ST/LL, but I recently saw a full length picture in which I *appear* to be more evenly proportioned than I thought I was, so now I am wondering. If that makes any sense.
Can someone help?
