The idea that a 0.7 WHR is preferred was challenged by Puhl and Boland (2001). Their study found that a model with a 0.86 WHR was rated as more attractive than a model with a 0.7 WHR. This study examined the stimuli used by Puhl and Boland for the extent to which the photographs used portray the actual true shape differential of the models.
