Women with Balanced body type can range from petite to tall, with small to medium bone structure, and a defined waist. They characteristically are either long-waisted with short-to-average legs, or short-waisted with long legs. Buttocks appear somewhat flat due to blending into thighs. Initial weight gain occurs in upper thighs, lower abdomen and waist, and hips.
Men with Balanced body type can range from average to very tall, often with wide hips. They are characterized by either a long torso with short legs, or short torso with long legs. Shoulders may be even with, to moderately broader than, hips. A natural abdominal layer may hide muscular definition in the torso even with exercise.
