Every woman wants an ideal body, but this is something that most women view differently. However, scientists have finally found how the woman body should look like.
According to the fashion industry, the skinny type of body is ideal, but let’s face it – they idealize this type of body because of their creations, which look perfect on a skinny model. It’s all about profits. Science, however, has a completely opposite opinion. According to scientists from the University of Texas, the ideal woman body is 1.68 tall with 99-63-91 bust\hip\weight measurements. You can see what that looks like in the picture below:
Not quite what everyone thought, right? The woman on the picture is Kelly Brook, a well-known 34-year old model from England. People refer to Brook as “plump”, but scientists say that she has the ideal body in terms of attractiveness. This shape also signifies the most important human trait – fertility.
Our primary function is to create new generations, and a full figure like Brook’s signifies a woman’s efficiency at doing that. Men are attracted to facial and body characteristics like Brook’s and associate them with good health and youth. The attraction transcends culture – according to a study, men coming from different cultural backgrounds will likely be attracted to the same woman with youthful and healthy characteristics.
Why are the skinny models considered ideal?
“Because the fashion industry is trying to sell clothes,” says Jennifer Lee, a designer who previously worked with the famous Karl Lagerfeld. Fashion models are hired on their ability to highlight the lines and structure of the clothing they wear, which is why there aren’t many models like Kelly Brook, unless the clothing is specifically designed for that type of figure.
And, although skinny models rule the runway, science has shown that most men are attracted to larger women. Being skinny is also associated with diseases and conditions, although being too large can be a problem as well. Striking a balance is the key for good health.
