Science often confirms what we already know, but occasionally, it surprises us with new findings that challenge conventional beliefs. A recent scientific study has raised eyebrows by suggesting that a 43-year-old model may possess the ‘ideal figure.’ In this article, we delve into the study’s revelations and explore the evolving standards of beauty.
Traditionally, the fashion industry has favored extremely slim body types, epitomized by iconic models like Kate Moss. Marilyn Monroe’s voluptuous figure, once admired, has been replaced by the preference for an hourglass shape. However, a groundbreaking study from Texas University has questioned this longstanding notion. The study indicates that a ‘fuller’ and ‘curvier’ body type is preferred among women. The ideal body mass index (BMI) is identified as 18.85, with specific measurements for bust size, waist, and hips. Interestingly, these specifications closely align with those of British model Kelly Brook, whose appearance challenges today’s beauty standards.
