hourglass figure

A formula for the perfect hourglass shape has been found by researchers.

According to the study, bust size and ratios of the thigh-height and hip-waist ratio are the crucial dimensions but the curviness and symmetry of the figure are also important.

“The human curve has come to represent the healthiest and most fertile form, highlighting the most suitable breeding partner and has evolved to be universally attractive to males for that reason,” said Dr. David Holmes, a senior psychology lecturer at the University of Manchester.

“The perfect curve also impacts on other females creating mixed responses of both respect and jealousy.”

The research also shows that 72 percent of men are attracted to curvier women while 63 percent of women would prefer to look like curvier celebreties such as Kate Winslet than slimmer stars.

Below is the formula for calculating your curves:

Hip-waist ratio
Divide the circumference of your waist by that of your hips. Look up the value nearest to yours on the list below and use the corresponding score in the final formula.
0.7 – 5
0.65 or 0.75 – 4
0.6 or 0.8 – 3
0.55 or 0.95 – 2
Less than 0.5 or more than 1.00 – 1

Thigh-height ratio
Measure your thigh at its largest point and divide this by your height. Look up the value nearest to yours on the list below and use the corresponding score in the final formula.
0.28 to 0.3 – 5
0.27 or 0.31 – 4
0.32 to 0.35 – 3
0.36 to 0.38 – 2
More than 0.38 or less than 0.27 – 1

Bust band difference
Measure the circumference directly below your bust then subtract this from the loosely measured girth at the widest point of the bust. Look up the value nearest to yours on the list below and use the corresponding score in the final formula.
5 or 6 (DD-E) – 5
4 or 7 (D or F) – 4
3 or 9 (C or G) – 3
2 or 11 (B or H) – 2
Less than 1 or more than 12 – 1

Prototypical Symmetry
Estimate the nearest description to your prototypical symmetry below and use the corresponding score in the final formula.
No face or body asymmetries or distinctions – 5
Minor facial distinctions – 4
Minor body and face distinctions – 3
Notable body and face distinctions – 2
Very individual character and appearance – 1

Individual curve
Estimate the nearest description to the line of your own body curve below and use the corresponding score in the final formula.
You have smooth unbroken curves rounded at every point on your body without a straight line in sight – 5
Your trunk bust and thighs curve into each other smoothly – 4
Your waist/hips or bust/waist lack concave curves – 3
Your waist/hips and bust/waist lack any concave curves – 2
You are mostly straight lines and bulges – 1

To calculate your perfect curve score
Add the scores for your bust size and thigh-height ratio to those for your hip-waist ratio, then multiply the sum by the score for body curve line and finally add the score for body symmetry. (BBD+THR+HWR) xBCL)+BS

Your perfect curve score
You are perfectly curved: 70-80
You share your scores with many attractive celebrities: 50-69
You will be noticed at events for your appearance: 40-49
You have a balance of shape and individuality: 30-39
You may wish to alter your appearance with modern clothing: 20-29
Try using enhancing clothing and reflect on your lifestyle if you want to change your appearance: 10-19
You are a true individual: 4-9

The research was conducted for the launch of Asda’s new ‘Tummy Tamer’ dress and skirt, designed to hide and sculpt excess flab and help women cheat their way to an hourglass shape.
