The UK did a study of some sort to find out what the ideal body types of women are when it comes to a woman's eyes and a man's eyes. It's really no surprise.. Women want to be smaller than what men want. It's all about comparison.
Keeping in mind that they're sizes are one bigger than ours [an 8 is actually a 6..], this is apparently the answer they came up with:
I will agree with the women's ideal on this, I think. As long as she's got some sort of shape when you look at her sideways, the flat tummy is totally desired.
Why does the size 12 look bigger than the 16 to me, though? Hmmm...
Let's take a love, elizabethany poll. We don't do it based on gender because that's annoying... We'll just take the overall average of desired size for a woman.
Use these as an example:
Jennifer Love Hewitt/Kim Kardashian
Miley Cyrus/Mel B
Kara DioGuardi/&/Bikini Girl
Kourtney Kardashian/Heidi Montag
I'm keeping my vote a secret until, and I bet you have no idea, but feel free to guess!
