    Very hard to tell from a pic but I'd hazard a guess at 14-18%

    I think you're wrong to focus on BF% to be honest as you don't seem to have a lot of lean mass so in ratio your BF may seem high. This can be dangerous in some people as they then think they need to lose weight but in your case I think if you can build up your lean mass and keep the same fat level you have now, you'll see some great changes in your shape. Hope that makes sense.

    You can't tell BF by pics AT ALL...
    Even the various electrical/calliper methods can be highly unreliable as they're dependent upon so many factors...

    20-22% but cant really tell accurately from pics and I agree with Kitty with regards to what you use as a measure but you have a nice shape to work with. Id LOVE to have a waist!!!!!!

    Very hard to tell from a pic but I'd hazard a guess at 14-18%

     
    if she was a guy looking that level of leanness,,,,.females are much higher, i'd say 20-24 ....normal female functionning is about 17% and i dont think she's under functional levels! looks a great fit/ toned level of bodyfat to sculpt into a figure goddess with a bit of hard training and extra muscle!

      Oh crap is this the female section
     Thanks Liz. I live and learn. Can i ask what BF% levels you get down to when you compete?
