3 = Amazon. Where #2 does volleyball, #3 does wrestling or gridiron
4 = Curvy. It's just #2 with padding.

Male
1 = Teenager. Or potentially little asian guy or little old man with the right looks.
2 = Healthy athletic male, my standard preference
3 = Duke Nukem, FPS action hero build.
4 = Depends on race for me. If they're white, they normally look fat to me. If they're darker skinned I think Samoan/Sumo (muscle with padding).
Completely agree there.

2s all round!

Well, I prefer to play my own gender, so for females I'll give examples of what I prefer to play as, and for males I'll give what I think looks best:

Females: Body types 2 & 4, depending. Body type 2 is more non-combat-oriented to me, so that's what my Sorc/Operative/Smuggler use, and 4 for my BH and both Warriors. I know body type 3 was intended to be the 'more muscular' version, but the bone structure on that just feels WAY too wrong. (I wish it didn't feel so awkward, as I'd love to use it!) Body type 1 is pre-teen, anorexic, or super model (though anorexia usually fits that category as well). If I ever got an idea to play a 'kid' character, I'd choose 1, but it's doubtful I'd do that. I'm really glad to have all the choices, though!

Males: Body type 2 in general, with 3 sometimes. Body type 1 is, again, teenager/kid. Body type 4 is morbidly obese or some cartoon artist's ridiculous imagination of what 'upper body strength' means. (I think a general 'fat' guy would work far better than the body shape they chose, but, hey, it's obviously popular to some due to how often I see it.) However, I'm not comfortable gender-bending even in virtual environments, so my preferences make little difference here.

Well I have a level 45 assassin with body type 3, and after a 4 month break i've come back and realised how ugly he looks.. I really enjoy the assassin playstyle and wish to continue playing, but I'm finding it very difficult to play when I look this bad. When you run you just look so clumpy and if the screen could shake, it would.
To this end, I have now created a body type 2 shadow and currently training it up, though I'm finding it rather difficult aswell since I've gotten to the stage I've got 6 or 7 50s and tons of alts and getting pretty tired of leveling :P

Anyways, body type 2 to be safe :>

Only Body Type 2 for males - everything else is far too weird for my liking. 3 is the closest to be normal, but it still seems comically 'big' - like a cartoon Villain or something.

I really wish they had a size slider instead of these 4 presets.
