Everyone looking for the perfect body measurements and if we’re talking about body measurements than hourglass shape is the best figure measurements. In this article, we will help you to know your figure measurements.
The Hourglass Shape of Figure is considered the ideal body type by many women. For women with this body type, the bust and hip are approximately the same sizes, and the waist is narrow. This gives you a set of sexy, killer curves.
Here are some proportions for perfect female body measurements for hourglass shape/figure
The 3 Key Proportions for The Perfect Female Body
For a woman’s body, the dimensions are expressed in terms of the circumference of three inflection points:
- Bust/ Shoulders
The human eye tends to track these three points as a curve and perceives the curve as the visual shape of the body.
That being said, I have laid out a benchmark for each of the waist, bust, and hip measurements.
Getting closer to these measurements will not only have your body being recognized as “sexy” by society’s standards but will also be defined as “fitness” level by the American Council on Exercise5.
Note: All measurements are in inches
1) Waist Measurement=Height x 0.375
Wrap the tape at the narrowest point around the hips
2) Bust Measurement=Waist Measurement x 1.5
Wrap the tape at the widest part around the chest
3) Hip Measurement: Same as Bust Measurement
Wrap the tape at the widest part around the buttocks.
For a woman that is 5 ft 4 in, this would imply the measurements of 36-24-36, i.e. 36″ bust, 24″ waist and 36″ hips.
