Move over Kim Kardashian, Liz Hurley is the new queen of the behinds (at least according to new research)
- Tiny waists and wide hips in demand, but most attractive are those in proportion
- New study at university in Turkey found that the perfect waist-to-hip ratio is 0.7
- Liz Hurley and Emma Thompson closer to perfection than Kardashian and Adele
Kim Kardashian managed to ‘break the internet’ with her famous derriere.
But women who hoped the reality star had brought big bottoms back into fashion may want to think again.
While tiny waists and wide hips are in demand, it appears the most attractive women are more in proportion.
Researchers found that actresses Liz Hurley (right) and Emma Thompson were closer to perfection than Kim Kardashian (left) and Adele
A study from Ege University in Turkey has found the perfect waist-to-hip ratio is 0.7, the traditional measurements of American beauty queens.
That suggests Kylie Minogue, famous for a music video showing her pert bottom in gold hotpants, may have the ideal behind.
The results also put actresses Liz Hurley and Emma Thompson closer to perfection than Kardashian and Adele.
Researchers created digital images of bottoms using images of 100 women and 100 men, then asked people to judge which buttocks were most attractive in each sex.
The results show 0.7 is the perfect ratio for women and 0.85 in men.
Around one in five women already have the perfect hip-to-waist ratio.
But while 0.7 is best from the side, 0.75 looks better from the back, the study says.
