Skinny apples exist!

Here are some illustrative celebrity examples. Angelina Jolie, Drew Barrymore, and Catherine Zeta-Jones all have:

  • Broad shoulders. Shoulders are the widest part of the body.
  • Long thin arms and legs
  • Not much difference between hip and waist measurements


If you look at pictures of each of them when pregnant, or in periods of weight gain, the inherent apple shape is more obvious.

To help you see it, draw imaginary plumb lines from the shoulders to the hips, and you’ll see that all of their shoulders are wider than the hips.

Because They’re So Slim, Does It Matter if They’re Apples?

Apple-teenies have more latitude with wearing belts and tighter clothing; it’s true that fashion isn’t as much of a challenge for them.

However, and I have heard firsthand accounts of this from apples sisters, when an apple-teenie is merely bloated, or gains five pounds, she can be equally subject to Pregnancy Assumptions.

And if she does ever gain weight (again, even a small amount, to become averaged size), she’ll find that her closet of clothes look COMPLETELY different on her, and she will need apple fashion tips more than ever before!
