THE BODY TYPE : GOBLET
Catherine Zeta Jones is a Goblet, wich is a very top heavy shape similar to the Cornet and Lollipop in many ways, but there are some differences. They have broad shoulders and a wide back, big boobs, not much of a waist, narrow hips, often a bit of a tummy and long legs (Some have a lot of tummy). Even though they have female curves, there is a big tendency for clothes making them look a bit boxy, square and masculine.
It’s just a case of accentuating the positive which is those lovely long legs and good bust line.
The most important guidelines.
- Anything square, chunky, to covering, or loose will make your figure look disproportionate and create an extreme version of the figure.
- Make sure to accentuate the space under your breast with a belt or something tightly fit, so your breast don't look saggy.
- Empire-line cuts, panelled skirts in a heavy fabric, or folded material will help cover the tummy for those who have it.
- Short skirts and high heels show those lovely long legs.
- Fluted skirts and ballon-sleeves helps you create curves in the areas that have less.
- Belts and pattern will help you break up and separate the different body elements for the curves to show through.
- Don’t be afraid to invest in some good shape-wear to smooth any lumps and further enhance your shape.
- Also make sure to have a great bras to keep those boobs up and away from your waist.
Remember, some of the world’s most attractive women are Goblets, so make the most of what you've got because you've got a lot of good stuff.
Other Goblets: Elisabeth Moss from Mad Men and Rene Zellweger.

Hi! This site is great, but I still can't decide if I am a goblet or lollipop...or something else entirely! My measurements are 38-28-39. I have very broad shoulders(ex swimmer) but a small back, my bra size is 30GG. I have a short waist and fairly long slim but muscular legs. I also don't have a flat butt, it's round-ish. I know all my details, but I don't seem to belong in any category :( Do you have any advice for me? Thanks in advance!

Sounds like V-shaped and mesomorph body type (muscular) - also a bit of apple and retangle.

Could be also cornet (instead of the breasts)

Hi, Elisabeth. If you look at Angelina Jolie's Lollipop figure, you can see that she actually have kind of wide shoulders. What makes her a Lollipop is that her shoulders and back is still not enough to be as broad as a Goblet body type is. Another difference is that a Goblet has a heavier chest than a Lollipop, so that would also count a lot.

Thank you so much, Sun! It has taken me a long while to get back here as I didn't know you replied, so my apologies. I think I am mostly a Goblet after reading your comment. Although, one with a slightly perkier bum than most! When I'm dressing I'm best suited to those styles. It is just difficult sometimes to find clothing that suits! Everything is always geared towards those a bigger bottom half.

Up to these days, I still believe that Catherine Zeta Jones is a goddess. People during her peak were so lucky because that were able to see it real time her greatness in acting and how she is being considered as an icon of her generation. It was a good thing that we get the chance to talk about her beauty. We cannot deny the fact that aside from her beautiful face, it is her figure that makes her a stand out. I am not surprised that a lot of guys admire her so much during her time! She was indeed a goddess for everyone's eyes!

Hi again Elisabeth :-) Yes, that is a problem many top heavy body types struggle with, as most clothes are made for either straight or pear shaped bodies as 60% of the worlds female population is somewhat Pear shaped and most models very straight. So, if you find a brand or a style that works for your shape, that could help a lot.

My measurements are 37-29-41 but my shoulders are 43 inches

Hi, Amber. That does sound like a Goblet figure. If you need more help a photo will give more information. You can send me some photo's on email@example.com if you'd like :-)

Hi. My measurements are 36-26-37 and my shoulders are 40. I ears 36D bra I have quite muscylar legs, medium torso, longer legs and long arms. I usually tend to gain very easily muscles. What is my body typr and what types of jeans fit me and t-shitts fit me??

Hi, Kate! It sounds like you could either be a Cornet with a bigger bra size than the stereotype, or a Goblet could fit perfectly too. I would also Check out the Cello, and see If your muskulatur legs could be curvy legs that might balance your top half? Do you have a large but and thighs? If your bottom half is straight, it sounds more like you're a Goblet or a Cornet. It's hard to say what t-shirt and jeans fit you before we're sure about the body type. So, go to the Overview of all the body types, look at the body types that I've mentioned. Once you find your type, look at the "Best Looks" posts for, for example Goblet body type (you can find the "Best looks" posts on the body types overview. Let me know if you can't find it) and there you will find examples of the best kind of pants and tops for your body type. That said, I think all women look good in skinny jeans (you just need to find the right waist length. High-waisted, natural, or dropped waist?). A T-shirt with a open neckline that's not too wide, but rather breaks up your shoulders and chest area at then same time, would be beneficial. As for sleeves, stay away from 3/4 length sleeves (anything below your albow should be full length), and normal t-Shirt sleeves or broad straps are better for your shoulders and your chest.

First, thanks for all the work you’ve put into this. I think I might be a goblet but it’s hard to tell! I’m 5’8” and measure 37-29-39. My chest is fairly large as I wear a 34D or DD but I think most people would be surprised by that size. My chest isn’t THAT obvious. I have a somewhat large rib cage and broad chest. My shoulders and hips are about the same. I think I’m somewhat top heavy but not too obvious. My hips aren’t super narrow and my legs aren’t super thin but they’re not pronounced either. Also, I’m fairly tall but I don’t have long legs. I would say my torso is long and I look better in high wasted pants, but my legs aren’t noticeably short either. My stomach is mostly flat but if I could choose to lose weight anywhere it would be there. Weight goes to my tummy and not my hips. My butt isn’t totally flat but it’s not pronounced either. I don’t gain weight in my butt but it will fill out more if I’m exercising more. You’ve probably noticed I’m qualifying everything I’m saying! That’s in part because my body image is constantly changing and it’s hard to know whether my perceptions are accurate! I identify with vases except my hips aren’t as pronounced and with goblets except my legs look more proportional in higher waisted pants and with bricks except my boobs are too big. What do you think?

Hi, Hil! Thank you so much for your kind words.

I am confused about my type. I have 38 D in bust. 31 in waist and 40 in hips and 40 in shoulders. I have a little waist but since I don't exercise, it is really not pronounced. My lower thighs are pretty big. I am not tall but medium-short height( I think). I gain weight a lot in breast, hips and thighs, a little is stored in the tummy. I need help.

Hi, Nattu! I think it actually sounds a lot like you might be a Cello body type. Second to that it is also possible that you're a Goblet, Brick, or Skittle. Your description fits best with Cello though.

Hi, thank you so much for this info. It's so informative. I was wondering if I'm actually Goblet. Thank you!

Hi, Lolo! I'm so glad you found this post helpful!

I wear a 37C, my waist is 35, and my hips are 36. My legs are long and strong, arms are long and my waist is very short, scoliosis makes it shorter. 5'3", my shoulders are about 39". Only my belly is too big. I can't wear defined waists but wish I could. What am I?
23/1/2023 07:30:46 am
I'm not sure if I'm a goblet with curvy (but not heavy) legs or an hourglass with wide shoulders. I thought I was a goblet because of my broad shoulders and big boobs, but now I'm not sure. I'm 5'6" and not plus-size (though most of my clothes are size M-L). My legs are more average-length than long, and while they're definitely slimmer than those of my pear and skittle-shaped friends, they're also not quite as long/slim as goblets/cornets/lollipops appear to be in these posts. Shapely would be a good word for them--they have some curves, but they're not so big that I have to dress around them. I do have a waist (my bust is 42" and my waist is 31"), but I feel that difference is more apparent from the side than the front, at least when wearing clothes. I frequently struggle with tops and dresses making me look "boxy" from the front, but the sideview is generally much better.
