    I would say …we used 3 persons with different body measurements. Or body types. – michael.hor257k Sep 26 '16 at 17:50
  • What kind of differences are you referring to? There are literally thousands of things that can be differently shaped. Height, width, general body types, shape of the face, ... <extend to infinity> – Helmar Sep 26 '16 at 17:50
  • @Helmar, height, width and weight – BetterEnglish Sep 26 '16 at 18:06

It depends on exactly what you're trying to say. Are these stick figures with different stick bodies? Are they cartoon characters with literal shapes for bodies? Are they real people?

If they're real people, you could say: we used 3 people with different weights and heights.

More generally, you could say you used people with different body shapes:

Human body shape is a complex phenomenon with sophisticated detail and function. The general shape or figure of a person is defined mainly by the molding of skeletal structures, as well as the distribution of muscles and fat.



1. b: "the form and structure of an organism or any of its parts"

In this simulation, we used 3 persons with different morphologies, Ectomorph, Mesomorph and Endomorph respectively.
