Rising obesity levels are to blame for a surge in the number of women in categories which indicate they are overweight.

One in five women are Ovals (20%) - rotund right across their upper body.

One in six are Diamonds (17%), the second most popular category - large around the hips but slightly thinner than Ovals around the bust, mimicking the shape of singer Adele.

The third most popular size is the Bell, like the American actress Lena Dunham - 12% have this dome-like shape which is wide around the waist and hips but trimmer around the bust.

In fourth place was the Cello - 11% of women are shaped like the instrument with slightly wider hips but a perfectly proportioned bust - similar to Jennifer Lopez.

The classic Hourglass figure of Hollywood stars such as Halle Berry and Scarlett Johansson, which goes out and in in all the right places, was in fifth place - 10% of women are lucky enough to have this shape.

In sixth place was the Spoon - similar to the Hourglass but with wider hips - a figure similar to Kate Winslet and 8% of women.

The Ruler came in seventh - straight from top to bottom like Gwyneth Paltrow and 7% of women.

Eighth place was the Column - like the Ruler but with more definition around the hips - a shape 6% of women have including the supermodel Cara Delevingne.

The Skittle was in ninth place - similar in shape to a bowling pin - 5% of women have this figure including the Duchess of Cambridge.

Bust-sizes have shot up so much in the last 20 years that a special new category had to be created for the shapeliest women with the biggest busts.

The Top Hourglass is for women with the classic Marilyn Monroe in-and-out-figure but with huge and sometimes surgically enhanced boobs.

Just 4% of women fall into this category including Nigella Lawson, whose bust is natural, and Kim Kardashian, whose 36DD boobs have benefited from surgery.

The research was carried out by Forza Supplements, Britain's leading health and wellbeing brand, which looked at the bodies of 2,000 women.

Forza Supplements managing director Lee Smith said: "These figures represent the shape of modern Britain.

"We are the fattest nation in Western Europe and obesity levels are rising all the time.

"One in four Britons are now clinically obese, according to the United Nations, so it should come as no surprise that Oval is the most popular shape of British women.

"A staggering 57% of women in the UK are overweight which explains why other bigger body shapes such as the Diamond and the Bell are popular, too.

"This the biggest health challenge we face as a nation and no Government in the last generation has been able to halt the rise.

"It is time we all woke up to the problem and started to make major changes in public policy to encourage our children to eat more healthily."

Forza Supplements has developed weight loss and wellbeing plans for a number of British stars including Britain's Got Talent winner Richard Hadfield, formerly of the male singing group Collabro.

Its Shake It Slim supplement is one the UK's best-selling meal replacement drinks.
