CORRELATES OF PHYSICAL BEAUTY IN MEN AND WOMEN
Abstract:Front-view drawings of male and female figures were rated for attractiveness by subjects of both sexes. The subject sexes did not differ in terms of the physique parameters judged relatively attractive. For female stimuli, attractiveness correlated negatively with waist width and hip width, and directly with figure slenderness. For male stimuli, attractiveness correlated positively with shoulder width and upper body taper.
