The researchers found that what is considered the “perfect” physique in the beauty industry depends on the height and dimensions of body parts. The vital statistics of a “super-attractive” female physique are recorded as being the following:
Body mass index 20.85
Bust girth to height 49.3%
Waist-chest ratio 1.4
Leg-to-body ratio 1.4
Calf girth to height 19.5%
Thigh girth to height 29.7
Compared to the average woman, this female physique is taller and has longer, slimmer legs (particularly at the calf and thigh). The waist is a third of the circumference of their hips but 3/4 of their bust. Researchers selected supermodel Naomi Campbell as being the closest to these measurements.
For men, actor Christian Bale came closest to the “perfect” physique.
Body mass index 26.5
Waist-chest ratio 0.6
Leg-to-body ratio 1
The length of the upper body should be the same as the lower body (the legs). The chest of the this physique is just under a quarter bigger than the waist and little more so than the hips.
Again, this study was conducted for the purpose of pinpointing what is considered “perfect” in the beauty industry – not in real life! It’s an interesting study, to say the least, but definitely not something most of us can aspire to. “Perfection” is something that is totally subjective!
