How Men And Women Differ When Drawing Up The 'Perfect Body'

In case you needed more fodder for a “depressingly unrealistic body expectations” Pinterest board, lingerie shop Bluebella.com polled 500 men and 500 women to create mashup images illustrating how the sexes differ when it comes to their “perfect body.”

And so began a game of commodifying different celebrities’ body parts to be photoshopped into the super-celebrity body.

Meanwhile, women were progressively throwing out a lifeline to the over-40 crowd. “Who would have thought mother of two in her 40s in Gwyneth Paltrow would come top of the female poll for the best toned tummy?” Bendell asked. “And it is great that in her sixth decade Elle Macpherson is still seen as a style icon by so many women.”

I didn't realize that Emma Watson was known for her hips... This survey really is inadequate however when it leaves out things like chins, shoulders, hands, calves and backsides.

I have yet to meet a woman who considers that super skinny female example to be ideal.

Well, they needed something everyone has seen.

This survey really is inadequate however when it leaves out things like chins, shoulders, hands, calves and backsides.

I assume it wasn't meant to be anything more than a very general survey, not a forensic reconstruction. Ask 100 men to compose the ideal female body and the overwhelming majority will not mention chins, shoulders, or hands, maybe calves.

And speaking only for myself, none of those celebrity parts would make the cut for my Perfect Woman. Both of those graphics illustrate the sum of the parts is less than the whole.

Where did they poll this alleged 500 of each sex body of peers ?
San Fransisco ? An LA hipster mall ?

There are people that actually believe 1,000 carefully picked representatives actually represent 360 million people ?
Seriously ?

As best I can tell, women like gay men and men like anything female that moves.

Although I have always considered myself to be an Adonis, the only comparable body part that I share with the 2 male examples shown are my feet. Very puzzling.

That's what you get for not being famous enough to be in a body part database. Ya better get to work on that, show 'em who's boss.

And those people wouldn't last more than a couple days stranded in the Andes. The rest of us know to keep our emergency rations close by, that is, on our person even when in the shower.

Many women like confident (bordering on narcissistic) men, then are unhappy when Mr. Right turns out to be a self-involved jerk. Sad...

Well, they just might want you to share.

It's my opinion that using the word "perfect" can only lead to letdown.

In almost every case.

Fair point.

The word is thrown around a lot, to the point where most people fail to realize it's really more a fantasy than reality. Keeping that in mind, then one can accept reality while entertaining a known fantasy.

Look for 95% and fill in the rest. And be ready for somebody to see you as their 95%.
