Young women are subjected to descriptions of the “perfect” female body and are subsequently distorting their own body images, due to media’s increasing use of slim female models and images of nearly unachievable body measurement. Complaints about body fat have become normal discourse among females. According to Alexandra Brewis, “This pattern of body image distortion is considerably more common in women than in men, to the point that it is considered an as usual female phenomenon.
The ideal measurements are also cultural defined. A giant ass is hot in Africa, while most women in the Western world choose to go for some sizes smaller. We have to limit the region where the comparison theory works. If we use western culture, women’s perfect height is between 5”6’ and 5”10’.
These are the perfect body measurements
Height: 5”8’ (173 cm)
Most sources specify ideal female measurements as 36-24-36. Evolutionary psychologist Devendra Singh, of the University of Texas-Austin, surveyed men in many different societies and arrived at this ratio.
According to an article Current Anthropology, December, 2008 entitled "Waist-to-Hip Ratio across Cultures: Trade-Offs between Androgen- and Estrogen-Dependent Traits"
