Beauty is one of those social norms that shouldn’t even exist, yet here we are. Every ten years a new idea gains popularity, and everyone rushes to adopt it as the finest.
Blonde hair and fair skin were in style in the 1950s, which were Marilyn Monroe’s era of dominance. Body type was essentially irrelevant. If you met the major requirements, you’d have to jump through a lot of hoops. People in the 1960s were smitten by slender ladies with adolescent bodies.
Sporty, curvaceous women with toned arms were all the rage in the 1980s. Women with transparent skin and extreme leanness were desired in the 1990s.
Since 2000, the ideal woman has been one with huge breasts, a large butt, an iron-flat stomach, a small waistline, thigh gaps, and immaculate skin, all supported by scientists (of all people). Think of Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Lopez, etc. It somehow doesn’t matter how they got their flawless bodies.
Despite the current trend for large bottoms and boobs, fashion houses and modeling agencies continue to demand tall, extremely thin ladies with distinct facial features. Consider Kaia Gerber, Kim Noorda, and Olga Sherer. To obtain this incredibly tiny body size, so many women have subjected themselves to some of the worst forms of torture, but thankfully, significant arguments are being made for a reconsideration of these standards.
Large breasts, a thin waist, and large hips
Though the ideas are comparable, science has a more precise notion of what the ideal beauty in a woman should resemble.
Researchers from the University of Texas claim that the ideal female figure is one that conforms to the ideals of the twenty-first century. The perfect lady is 1.68 meters tall, with a 99 centimeter breast, 63 cm waist, and 91 cm hips. Additionally, she is 5’5″ tall, with measurements for her bust, waist, and hips of 38.9, 24.8, and 35.8 inches, respectively.
Do you currently have somebody in mind who meets these criteria? Consider Kelly Brooks instead.
English model, actress, and media personality Kelly Ann Parsons is also known as Kelly Brooks in the professional world.Kelly has gradually caused enormous waves in the fashion and modeling industries and fits the scientists’ description of her flawlessly. The 40-year-old, who is revered as a global style icon and has been modeling since she was 16 years old, was named FHM’s sexiest woman alive in 2005.
Kelly’s modeling career wasn’t always without its bumps. Sometimes she was turned down by agencies because they thought she was “too plump”. Kelly simply didn’t suit their constant demand for the thinnest women in the market.Today, Kelly is the epitome of perfection, according to science, and she is still pursuing a lucrative profession supported by advertising campaigns for significant corporations.
What’s so special about the 99-63-91 spec?
Males are overwhelmingly more drawn to curvier females, according to numerous recent and old research. This is due to the unconscious association between youthful curviness and fertility in the male psyche. The ability to reproduce strongly influences attractiveness, thus the most attractive women are those who appear most prepared for motherhood. The phrase “childbearing hips” originates from this.
These supposedly fruitful and young traits are present in the 99-63-91 body with a height of 1.68m. However, in actuality, a woman’s level of fertility would be influenced by a number of factors, and only a small portion would depend on body type.
Although it has been discovered that obesity contributes to infertility, miscarriages, and pregnancy complications in women, anyone could cope with infertility issues regardless of her size.
The scientists might have a point somewhere, although beauty will always be highly relative and dependent on a person’s standards.
The truth you should know about the preferred body type in modeling
Models are only chosen based on the outfits they would exhibit, claims Jennifer Lee, a fashion expert who collaborated with the late Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s top designer.
The modeling and fashion industry is not exactly interested in any beauty standards. Skinny ladies are mostly chosen because they are less likely to distract an audience’s attention from the clothes. Ms. Lee explains that if curvy women are employed to showcase clothes and market accessories, people would end up fawning over their bodies rather than the items.
In conclusion, beauty is abundant in everyone, and we should all strive to be people who do not conform to unrealistic and human-defined beauty standards. Imagine what the world would look like if we all had one body type, one skin color, one hair color, or even the same facial features. It would be a very boring, drab place with no tasteful diversity. This means that everybody type matters, and women can hold their heads high and love themselves to bits because we are all perfect in our own way.
