I now am convinced this is the most comfortable shape for most women, especially women with some years behind them. Though it may seem counterintuitive for women where slim is in, larger ripper bodies and more comfortable for many.

The photo is poor as I am under the weather for now.

Good work.
Thanks for the advice. I will go for the more ergonomic shape on the next.

Feel better
