Women put pressure on themselves in countless ways – but few perceptions influence their relationships and confidence like the way they view their bodies. Ironically, what women consider to be their ideal shape is significantly smaller than what men consider to be the ideal shape. Use this scale to evaluate your body shape in a healthy way.
When asked what their ideal body shape would be, most women respond types 1, 2, or 3. However, men prefer body shapes in the 5, 6 or 7 area. Women also often view their body types as a higher number than their partners perceive them.
Print this scale out to discuss your shape with your partner. An open dialogue about your body can boost confidence and reinvigorate your sex life.
