Bust out the measuring tape!
A New Zealand anthropologist has determined the perfect female waist-to-hip ratio for getting instant sexual attraction from men, the Daily Mail reports. Researcher Barnaby Dixson has concluded that having a .7 waist-to-hip ratio, or a waist measurement that is 70 percent of the hip circumference, will help ladies lure the fellas, according to the paper.
Exhibits A, B, and C: Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, Marilyn Monroe, and model Alessandra Ambrosio, who all reportedly boast the desirable body.
“It is likely that perfect 0.7 ratio sends a biological signal to men that that woman is most fertile and most likely to produce a healthy offspring, no matter what size that woman is,” Dixson explained on Australian TV, echoing a similar report that found that men are hardwired to find curvy female figures attractive.
“It is all about the distribution of fat, which is directly linked to fertility.”
Greaaaat. Guess it’s back to the stomach crunches for us.
