Ideal Female Body Measurements

The answer to this question is a point of contention and social debate.

This is why we can't give you this number right away without qualifying certain "issues".

So, before we just spell out the numbers (bottom of this page), let us first take a look at a couple of things that are vital when considering ideal female body measurements:

  1. Waist-to-hip ratio
  2. Vital Stats or Measurements

The waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) is something you have heard about plenty of times. But, what is it really? Well, it's a woman's waist measurement divided by the hip measurement.

ideal female body measurements,

Here's an example:

Jane has a waist measurement of 28 inches and a hip measurement of 40 inches.

28 divided by 40 = 0.7

Thus, Jane's waist to hip ratio is 0.7 (this is the way it's expressed: 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, etc.)

Now, here is the problem, and this is why we mentioned that we needed to qualify certain statements before we mention what the ideal female body measurements are.

Namely, there are significant cultural differences in terms of preferences for what the ideal female body measurements should be.

Research has discovered that the waist-to-hip ratio of any woman of any build is strongly related to how attractive a woman is perceived to be. This perception of attractiveness is prevalent in all cultures.

Women with a 0.7 waist-to-hip (waist circumference measurement that's 70% of the hip circumference measurement) are often perceived to be more attractive by men from North America and European cultures.

Famous beauty icons (past and present) such as Angelina Jolie, Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren all have (or had -in their primes) waist-to-hip ratios of around 0.7.

However, preferences vary from culture to culture. For instance, men in Asia perceive women with waist-to-hip ratios of 0.6 to be the most attractive, while in South America and Africa women with ratios of 0.8 or 0.9 are believed to be the most desirable and most attractive.

Vital Stats/Measurements

The waist-to-hip number alone doesn't say much without knowing the vital stats measurement of a woman.

Thus, a woman's "dimensions" are expressed in terms of the circumference around three main points - widest point of the chest, narrowest point of the waist and widest point of the hips.

Here's an example:

A 36-29-38 (inch) vital stats measurement means a 36" bust, 29" waist and 38" hips.

This measure is called a woman's vital statistics.

A woman's bust measurement is her breast size, as reflected by her bra cup size.

Let's illustrate this with an example of 2 different women:

Woman A with a bra size of 36A has a rib cage of 35 to 36 inches in total circumference and her bust measures 37 inches.

Woman B with a bra size 34C has a rib cage of 33 to 34 inches in circumference, but the same bust measure (as Woman A) of 37 inches.

Thus, the woman with a 34C breast size - Woman B - will look bustier because of the difference in bust-to-hip ratios (narrower shoulders and more prominent breasts) even though both women have the same BWH ratio.

Another element that influences ideal female body measurements is height. Height affects the appearance of a woman's figure.

For instance, a woman who has vital stats of 36-24-36 and is 5 ft 2 inches tall (1.57 m) will look different from a woman who has the same 36-24-36 vital stats but stands 5 ft 8 inches (1.73 m) in height.

Because the taller woman's body figure has a greater distance between measuring points, she will appear (and be perceived) as thinner and less curvy than her shorter counterpart with the exact same vital stats measurements.

Thus, even though both of them have the same BWH (bust-to-waist-to-hip) ratio and the same weight, the taller woman is thinner because of her height.

Ideal Female Body Measurements - The Generally Accepted Standard

The ideal female body measurements (according to most modelling agencies and health, fitness and fashion experts) are:

34-24-34 inches (86-60-86 cm)

with a height of at least 5 ft 7 inches (1.70 m).

ideal female body measurements,


There you go! Whether or not you agree with this is a whole other issue. For some this may be too thin. For others it may sound just about right!

In any case, we believe that this "ideal" female body measurement is not realistic nor representative of what women actually look like and puts unwanted pressure on women to try to be "ideal" when in fact each and every woman can be beautiful and sexy in her own way!

I'm 5'3" and I'm 36-29-40. Not sure this is a good thing... Considering I've lost some weight in a year (I'm 18 and I've been trying to lose weight) I …

I want to know if my body measurements are ideal 
I'm 42, height 5'3" Asian 32"-27"-36 with a weight of 118 lbs. How much do I have to lose?

Ideal for what? 
These would be excellent for bearing and nourishing an infant. Big hips to ease the stress (both mother and child) of childbirth, and big breasts to feed …

I'm okay... 
I'm 31-24.5-34.5 and I'm 5'6". I guess I would be really attractive if I wasn't so flat-chested...

I'm 5feet 8inches tall and 36-28-40.

For a 5'1" 
It's really cool to know the ideal body for women. I am 5'1" Asian woman with a B-W-H of 32-25-35. Well, I'm kinda content with my figure but I want to …

Does it matter? 
I'm 18 and 45-38-45 38DDD (yes I meant to put 3 D's) at 5'7" and guess what I don't care if I'm not "ideal measurements". I'm happy with how I am and I …

Apparently I have the "perfect" measurements.. 
I'm 5'7, black-caribbean with B-W-H of 34-24-34; they say it's the ideal but I disagree. I wish I had a larger bust and hips, I consider 36-25-38 (basically …

Should I try to improve my size? 
I'm 5"7 & I'm 38"-26"-37".

Cultural/Social Ideal 
Alright ladies: calm down now. This is 'ideal' and it clearly says, "In any case, we believe that this "ideal" female body measurement is not realistic …

Question on measurements 
What should be the measurements for a girl that's 148cm tall?

My measurements 
I'm 16, 41-30-41, and 5'2". So that's like .73, and I wear a 36D. I workout and play lots of sports, but I want to loose some weight. But guys tend …

Wow I'm Tiny... 
I'm 26-22-26 and im 5'6"; I am only 17 years old though so that might come into effect here. I just wish my breasts were a bit bigger...

Well it's OK I guess 
I'm 5'7" and have an OK figure I guess. It's 34-32-38 but it seems a little straight. My sister tells me I don't have a figure but boys check me out. …

Idk. Guesss I'm too Big 
I'm mixed and 5'2" at 170 pounds; 36-25-45 are my measurements. Guys always check me out because they love my big butt and hips. I just wish I could be …

I Agree 
My measurements are 36-35-45. I'm mixed with black white and Indian. I wish I could be that small. Im 5'2" and I am very curvy. I always attract guys everywhere …

Slightly Confused 
I am always sized as a 32D or 34C but my rib cage is 29 inches in circumference. What type of measuring system is this using? I'm 37-27-37.

I'm 5'9 with measurements of 36-25-32 and I'm clinically underweight with a BMI of 17.0 at 115 lbs. People have to remember to take their own body shapes …

Holy CRAP! 
I am 5'6. That waistline is going to be hard to get too!

People stop bitching. 
Take your own body shape into account instead of griping. I'm at 5'5", 37-27-40, and I don't think there's anything wrong with it. So I'm a little pear-shaped, …

This is way off! 
I'm 6' tall and measure 42 (actual bust but upper rib cage is 34-30-44) and my hips are very unlikely to get to a 34 because bones don't shrink! Also, …

I take issue with the idea that 5 foot 7 is the "ideal" height. It's possible that in the modeling industry, that is the case, but the modeling industry …

Do I have good measurements? 
Well I've got the bottom two pretty close. I'm 30-23-35. My waist ranges from 22 to 24 and my chest is just really small. Idk., are those good measurements? …

Doesn't sound right to me! 
24 inch waist? That sounds unreachable. My auntie was put in hospital when her waist was 25 inches as she was malnourished, then again she was quite tall …

Body shape 
I think everybody's shape is unique on its own. Wether you have a banana shape, apple shape, pear shape or even an hour glass shape, so far as you look …

Darn! Off by one. I'm a .07-ish, 34-25-34.

Scottish Female's Reply 
It is confusing when your b-w-h (bust-waist-hips) ratio is 36.3-32-36.5, and you're 5ft 4inches. It's confusing when it comes to getting a real dress …

Women are Perfect for Men 
The article states that in South America women with a bigger waist-to-hip-ratio are considered ideal, when in fact it is the opposite. According to the …

Americans are using "unrealistic" in place of lazy with a lack of control. The .07 should be modified with skeletal structure, of course. I am 34c-23-34, …
