Is there a website with images of body types?

Its often difficult to get a true sense of one's own physique. Is there a website where one could enter a height and a weight in order to see an image of the body type described?

This may not be quite what you had in mind, but your question reminded me of the Photographic Height/Weight Chart at Sadly, it's not complete and I'm not sure if it's still being updated.

MyVirtualModel is available, but currently only for women (although it says that teens and men are "coming soon!").

Land's End has a virtual model for men and women.

choose "women" and click the "my virtual model" located bottom right.

The Land's End model messed up my fitting. I put in my height and weight, but the jeans I chose with it were much too large. I had to return them for the next size down.

I don't know anything about using it for educational purposes, but that's just a warning to anyone buying clothes with it.
