Heart body type women present a soft, round, heart-shaped appearance with firm, shapely, rounded or prominent buttocks. They can range from petite-to-average in height, with small-to-medium bone structure and a defined waist. Shoulders are narrower than, or relatively even with, hips. A layer of softness covers muscle, resulting in little definition. Weight gain begins in lower abdomen, upper thighs, inner knees, waist, middle back, and upper hips.
Heart body type men can range from average-to-tall in height, and medium or large bone structure, with a heart-shaped or full face. Torso can be proportionate or thick, and has a soft layer that prevents muscular definition. Weight gain begins in the abdomen, back, and as soft rolls or thickening at the waist.
