The common perception about the appearance of cellulite is that women who are on the heavier side are more prone to developing cellulite. Although true, it does not mean that lean women do not need to be on their guard. While you can thank your genes, if your family members are not afflicted by it, your body type, or the shape of your body can also help to determine whether or not cellulite will appear on your frame.
The female body can be divided into four basic types. These are:
Gynaeoid Body: A woman who is a part of this classification has an attractive body, with curvy proportions, fat deposition at desired places of the body. These women tend to have small or medium shoulders, with a petite waist. Fat is deposited in the breasts and hips that curve outwards, because of estrogen. The primary job of estrogen is to give a woman?s body its exquisite womanly figure, and the gynaeoid body is a perfect example. In these body types, cellulite usually forms occur in the hips and thighs.
Lymphatic Body: A lymphatic body has a very slow metabolism, owing to which the overall appearance of the body is stocky. These women have fat all over their body and are most likely to develop cellulite, everywhere. Abdomen, hips and thighs are all vulnerable to cellulite development.
Thyroid Body: Women who flaunt the thyroid type of structure should thank their lucky stars. These women have a very low risk factor and hardly develop cellulite and in the small case they do, it is limited to the hips or the back side of the thighs. This body is characterized by lengthy arms and legs and a general slender figure. A fast metabolism makes certain that weight is not put on.
Android Body: A woman categorized with an android body will typically have a weighty upper body and a reasonably trim lower body. Wide shoulders and rib cage are commonly attributed signs of an android body, and cellulite appears generally around the stomach and hips, but hardly on the lower body.
