You are an "apple" or "ruler" shape, with a fairly balanced ribcage and hip. Men can wear this style with ease as well, sometimes upside-down if it's more comfortable. People with average-to-longer torso lengths should fit this cut.
You have a torso shorter than 9" in height. If you have a dramatic "pear" shape or your hip measurement (iliac crest) is 10+ inches larger than your natural waist, you may be more comfortable in the long cut under bust instead.
