Women worldwide are habituated to worrying all the time about their weight. One of the biggest contributors to this fear of body weight are insurance companies who would start using the calculation of body mass index in relation to health just so that they could create ways and means to prevent payouts and expenses of insurance on clients. This gave way to the trend of people slowly using this measurement more and more as a means to check health resulting in people resorting to vigorous and unhealthy rigid diets just to shed pounds but starved themselves instead.

2Men like plump women more when they experience hunger

The idea of the perfect body shape depends on many factors including hunger. Studies have shown that the modern man takes a liking to plump women and finds them attractive when he is feeling hungry. In ancient times, a figure with wide hips, large breasts and a big belly was associated with fertility and sensuality. Women were not treated well medically, so those with such a figure had better chances of delivering a baby successfully and feeding them. This is why they were more sought after by men and found more attractive.

4It’s society that determines what an ideal will be

It is usually culture and society that influences the body shape of a woman. In ancient Greece, sculptors influenced this aspect of females where feminine statues were never too thin and had voluptuous or attractive shapes. Breasts were never large because sculptors were more concerned with body perfection than sensuality.
