According to it I am:

Four Body Shapes - #1. Hourglass

If you have an Hourglass body shape, your bust and hips are about the same circumference, and your waist is narrow, 6-9 inches smaller than your bust & hips.
Your legs are tapered, with smaller ankles and muscular calves.
You have strong bones, a lot of muscle mass, and great flexibility throughout your entire body.

Hourglass shape problem areas:
Your triceps (backs of the upper arms), inner & outer thighs, the saddlebag area (below the hips, outside of the upper thigh), and the lower abdomen.
You tend to put on weight evenly throughout your entire body (sometimes a little more on the lower half), but less at the waist.

Losing fat and toning up:
More than the other types, you need to lose inches vs. pounds, which can’t be done without exercising. The loss of inches doesn’t show on the scale, so forget about it and use a measuring tape instead.
The right workout for your Hourglass body will make you look toned and at least 10-15 pounds slimmer.

Looking at another site

I would be an:

Endomorphs: Endomorphs tend to have bigger bones that the other body types. These men and women usually have round faces with larger thighs and hips. Endomorphs have arms and legs that tend to be short and tapering, giving them a stocky appearance. Most endomorphs have comparatively small hands and feet and a high waist. Additionally, endomorphs have higher levels of body fat than the other body types, but they can also build muscle and lean mass easily. Weight loss is most difficult for the endomorph body type.

If you are an Hourglass'
If you are have an hourglass figure, then you should be focusing on both cardio and resistance exercises. Cardio will assist in keeping your weight in check, while resistance exercises will help to maintain balance between your upper and lower body. Vary your repetitions and keep your resistance weights light so as not to build too much muscle mass. Here are some great exercises that you may want to try:

* slow jogging
* stationary biking (with light resistance)
* jumping jacks
* swimming
* bicep curls, shoulder presses, and squats
