Women with Skin body type presnet a soft, gentle appearance with a full face which is oval or round. They characteristically have a square, flat upper back with a relatively straight torso, and shoulders relatively even with hips. Height may range from petite to tall. Even at ideal weight, puffiness in hands and feet obscures tendons. Weight gain begins in lower abdomen, upper hips, waist, middle back, face, and upper thighs.
Men with Skin body type have medium-to-large bone structure and a round or oval face. They characteristically have a square, flat upper back. They have a thick, straight torso, typically with slender legs, and shoulders relatively even with hips. A soft layer of fat under skin covers muscle, minimizing muscular definition. Excess weight is often a problem later in life, and weight is predominantly carried in torso in the front. Hair loss pattern is frontal with rising forehead, or minimal receding at upper sides.
