A research conducted in 40 countries surveyed 583 plastic surgeons and 450 members of the public by showing them photographs of a 27 year old volunteer model.

The image was then altered to create a range of different body profiles.

More than 35 percent of the participants felt that a 0.7 waist to hip ratio “to be their ideal” body type.

"It is likely that the perfect 0.7 ratio sends a biological signal to men that a woman is most fertile and most likely to produce a healthy offspring, no matter what size that woman is," read New Zealand anthropologist Dr. Barnaby Dixson's report on a similar research.

Basically if you have/want the perfect butt, you should strive to have a 0.7 waist to hip ratio – which is Beyonce like in other words.

Beyonce’s has a 26 inch waist and a 40 inch hips thus making her waist to hip ratio to stand at an “ideal” 0.65.

Away from the waist to hip ratio being used as a measure for the perfect butt, it can also serves as a better measure of health than body mass index (BMI).

Studies have found that having a slim waist compared to your hips is a better indicator of health than overall weight and height as measured by BMI.

Women have over the years tried every thing from wearing waist trainers to more extreme measures such as getting plastic surgery done just in order to get the perfect body.

Despite all measures taken by women to try have the perfect body though, also comes the rise of the appreciation of the female body just as it is which is all that matters at the end of it all - self-love.
