What Measurements are Considered Attractive?
CassieVoiles Posts: 26 Member
I’m wondering what y’all consider attractive as far as measurements. I’m at 35, 30, 35. I would like a goal if possible, so what’s the ideal?
What measurements would make you happy? Different fits for different people.13
Who cares what others think. What matters is what you think about your current weight and shape. Are you happy with the way you currently look? Like the way your clothes fit? If yes then screw what others think. Living up to others' ideals is a recipe for misery. Once upon a time super tiny waists were "ideal", and look how bad that turned out.
Also just wanted to say I love your outfit in these pictures7
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! There is no “ideal”.9
Since there's only so much you can do about your measurements once you've lost an appropriate amount of weight and done a lot of squats if you want a bigger gluteus maximus, I'm not sure there's a point to having a "goal" that there's no clear-cut strategy to reach.6
Why not set your goals based on what you want, rather than the opinions of a few random people on the internet?11

This can't be emphasized enough.
OP, you look like a beautiful young woman. If you go searching for what everyone else wants, there are folks out there who will be happy to oblige you, and you don't want that.
On the physical side of things, I would suggest you figure out what you need for calories to either maintain or have a slight deficit, and get involved in a solid fitness routine. There are loads of folks here who can guide you, give great advice on all manner of programs.
Go from there and be kind to yourself. Seriously, screw what others want. Take care of yourself. You may wind up happier than you think you will.8
I find confidence and a positive sense of self attractive no matter what the measurements are.15
1.7 is the ideal aesthetic ratio, so a difference in multiplier from waist to hip/chest is 1.7.7
The most attractive person in the world to me is what you would typically call unattractive. He is older, overweight, and has bad knees. I have the biggest cerebral crush on him. He is witty, smart, funny, and just so cool. Is he my physical type? No. But dang I dig him on every other level. He's married, so he's off limits but I still crush on him like crazy.4
Apparently older and chubbier is in since husband said I was turning heads the other day and not wearing anything revealing. Learn to love yourself how you are now because you can't ever be a certain number, look or size forever no matter what you do. Age with confidence.2
You're asking a wide variety of people that question. You'll get a wide variety of answers. The first 2 look to be the most sensible you'll get. Do you. Do healthy. Do strong.3

Say we all answered that Barbie's proportions, which have been estimated to be 39 inches (chest), 18 inches (waist) and 33 inches (hips), were ideal.
What would you do with that information? Hopefully, you'd discard it.5

^^^ This... One persons dream is another person's " Meh...not my cup of tea..."3
Here’s the thing.
Eat to live. Eat less to lose weight.
Exercise to be strong and healthy. Figure out what you want your body to DO and develop a routine around that.
Attractiveness is poise and joy. Pick an activity that gives you joy.
Ideal beauty is your soul, not your measurements.
There are no weight loss foods.
There are no diet exercises.
There is no ideal measurement that will build your attractiveness.3
My model gorgeous boyfriend seems to think my measurements are ideal. I am obese and pear-shaped and he is crazy for that. Or any weight/measurements really I am since he values other qualities than my waist measurements.
Again: Don't ask random internet people what you should consider attractive.6
Confidence and being comfortable in your own skin are attractive.
My targets are all sport related. I can effectively work towards a faster 5k time, the size of my thighs is much more difficult to control.
Happiness is about achievable goals, I don't set myself up to fail.4
