So the other day I was watching a documentary called The Greeks: Crucible of Civilization,and it is clear to see that they had a real eye to what they believed was the perfect body measurements for women. You can see this from statues and artwork.
Now, I want to go on record and state that the perfect body measurements for females are going to differ. There is no right or wrong answer, just opinions. Different cultures like different things.
In the fashion industry, 36x26x36 is considered to be the perfect measurements for women. It is said having these measurements results in a woman looking best in any clothing situation. It is ridiculous to obsess over these numbers, so I say take them with a pinch of salt and don’t try to force your body to fit this standard. A much better method is about to be laid out for you and a solution provided which is personal to YOU, since you are UNIQUE.Okay, now that we have the political stuff out of the way, I am going to lay out a guide for you to work out how to achieve the perfect female measurements using ancient Greek knowledge.
Calculating Perfect Body Measurements For Women
Waist To Height Ratio:
Starting with your height, you are going to work out approximately 38% of this. For example, a woman of 5″8′ is 68″. 68 multiplied by 0.382058824 (38%) is 25.98. So for a woman of exactly 68″, her waist should be 25.98.
Note: Taken at most narrow point below ribs.
Shoulders To Waist Ratio:
Take your ideal waist and multiply this by 1.618. So in our example 25.98 x 1.618= 42.03. This is what your shoulders should be for a great visual effect.
Note: Taken at widest point in shoulders.
Hips To Waist Ratio:
Take your waist and multiply by 1.42. So 25.84 x 1.42= 36.89. This is what the hip circumference for a 5″8′ woman should be to complete her perfect body measurements.
Note: Taken at widest point where butt sticks out.
