“Beauty has no size, no skin tone, no hair color, no eye color, no facial features, no muscle definition… for we are all uniquely beautiful and the standards are unreal.” – Anonymous
Beauty is one of those societal standards that shouldn’t even be a standard, and yet, here we are. Every decade, a new concept takes over and everyone starts scampering to fit in with whatever’s considered the best. In the 1950s, during Marilyn Monroe’s reign years, blonde hair and light skin were in vogue. It almost didn’t matter what your body type was. You’d scale through a lot of hoops if you fit into the major criteria. In the ‘60s, people adored willowy women with an adolescent physique. The ‘80s were crazy about athletic, curvy women with toned arms. The ‘90s wanted their women extremely thin with translucent skin. 
From 2000 to date and backed up by scientists (of all people), the perfectly beautiful women must have large breasts, a large butt, an iron-flat stomach, a thin waistline, thigh gaps, and flawless skin. Think Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and it somehow doesn’t matter how this perfect body was achieved.
Despite the latest craze with big butts and boobs, fashion companies and modeling agencies have retained the 90s standards, still insisting on extremely skinny, tall women with well-defined facial features. Think Olga Sherer, Kim Noorda, and Kaia Gerber. So many women have put themselves through some of the worst kinds of pain to achieve this ultra-thin body size, but thankfully, strong statements are being made for a review of these standards. 
Large breasts, a thin waist, and large hips
Although the concepts are similar, science has a more specific idea of what the ideally beautiful women should look like.
According to researchers from the University of Texas, the truly beautiful female body is geared toward the 2000s standards. The ideal woman is 1.68 meters tall, with a bust, waist, and hip size of 99, 63, and 91 in cm respectively. That’s also 5’5 ft. tall, with a bust, waist, and hip size of 38.9, 24.8, and 35.8 in inches respectively.
Are you thinking of someone who has these statistics right now? Well, think Kelly Brooks.
