Are we really a "rare breed"?

Lately I have become very conscious of the fact that my shoulders are about an inch broader than my hips. And the more I look around, the more women I see who are the same way! Practically 20% of the population, I'd say. So why do the pears steal all our thunder?

Also, I'd like to clarify ANY woman with more shoulder than hip considered an inverted triangle? I have a fairly small bust and a small waist, but my torso is so long that you totally forget I have a waist by the time your eyes hit my shoulders!
