heights, shapes and sizes ?
In the sentence "people come in all kinds of heights, shapes and sizes" : does "size" have the same meaning as "height" or what ?
And what about "shapes" : does this relate to being fat or thin ?
Re: heights, shapes and sizes ?
Height is specifically how tall they are.

So someone can be 1.65m tall, round and fat.
