The ideal female body. Does it really exist? According to science, it does. If that’s not surprising, just wait and what that perfect body really looks like. It’s nothing the fashion industry could need, that’s for sure.
This is the ideal woman’s body according to science
Researchers at the University of Texas say that the perfect woman’s body measures 1.68 meters (5’6”) tall. The measurements of the bust / waist / hip are 99-63-91 cm (39-25-36 in.).
In case you don’t have the ability to automatically imagine female body types based on measurements alone, it looks similar to the images shown in the article.
This woman is Kelly Brook. She is a 34-year-old model and actress from England.
Most people refer to her as being “overweight”. That’s what talent scouts said when Brook first tried to enter the world of modeling.
But, according to scientists, Brook’s all-natural body is perfect in terms of attractiveness. It would be the ideal female body.
Why is attractiveness important?
And what makes attractiveness so important, you might ask Well, it represents the most important trait that a human being can have, scientifically speaking – fertility.
After all, the primary function of the individuals of any species is to support future generations – a full figure communicates one’s ability to do just that, not only through pregnancy but also breastfeeding.
Men are attracted to women whose facial and body characteristics – like those of Kelly Brook – are associated with youth and good health.
This attraction transcends culture. Studies have shown that even when two men come from different backgrounds, they are likely to be attracted to the same woman with younger, healthier features.
Why are all the models skinny?
So why are all the models so thin?
Because they are trying to sell clothes, and that doesn’t convey the issue of fertility, according to Jennifer Lee, former collaborator for the fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, head of Chanel.
Models are hired for the way they accentuate the lines and structure of the clothing they wear. That’s why we see very few women in the industry who look like Kelly Brook.
But while thin supermodels could make a dress look good on the runway, scientifically – as the study involving Kelly Brook has shown – most men prefer a woman several times larger.
Being too thin is an indicator of poor health and can lead to a variety of problems. Being too big isn’t good either; finding a healthy balance is the key.
