In different eras, the understanding of the ideal figure was different. But at any time women sought beauty and the standards that fashion set. A few centuries ago, people tried to determine what the ideal parameters are and what should be considered when calculating them. At the moment there are many formulas and tables for calculating the parameters in accordance with the height and weight of a person, the values in them are somewhat different. Some systems are based only on height and weight, others take into account the body type of a person, and still others even age. Consider the most common system for determining the ideal parameters. What are the parameters of an ideal figure?

**Parameters for women of large (wide bone) build with medium height (165-167 cm):**

- Waist - 70-76 cm
- Hips - 95-106 cm
- Chest volume - 8-10 cm more ½ of the growth
- Breast volume - more than 8-10 cm of chest circumference
- Leg length - more by 2-4 cm ½ part of growth

**For women of slim thin boning with medium height:**

- Waist circumference - 60-64 cm
- Girth of the hips - 85-94 cm
- Chest volume - 84-86 cm
- Chest circumference - 4-6 cm more chest circumference
- Leg length - 6-9 cm more than ½ of the growth

**For women of average build with average height:**

- Waist circumference is calculated by the formula - height minus 10 cm
- Hip volume - 20-30 cm more than waist circumference
- Chest volume - 2-5 cm more ½ growth
- Chest circumference - 8-10 cm more chest circumference
- Leg length - 4-6 cm more ½ growth

The proportionality of the figure is also very important. It is determined by the formula proposed by modern scientists. It is necessary to measure the circumference of the thigh immediately below the gluteal fold. The result is multiplied by the sum of the volumes of the shoulder, lower leg and neck. With proper proportionality, the coefficient that you get as a result of the calculations should be in the range of 0.54-0.62.

**You can calculate the ideal parameters by the following formula:**

- Waist Girth - 2 Neck Girth
- Neck circumference - 2 wrist circumferences
- The normal ratio of hips and waist - 0.6-0.72

**Alternative Formula:**

In order to calculate the ideal parameters using this formula, multiply the size of your height in cm by the factor indicated below:

- For a waist 0,35-0,4
- For breast 0.5-0.55
- For hips 0,52-0,6
- For the circumference of the legs (in the area of the protruding part of the gastrocnemius muscle) 0,21-0,23
- For wrist grip 0.09-0.1
- For shoulder width 0.18-0.2
- For neck circumference 0.18-0.2

Previously, to determine the optimal weight, a formula was used, where it was necessary to subtract 100 from its height in cm. According to the experts who derived this formula, the resulting number should have been considered your ideal weight.

But later it was determined that this formula is not entirely correct and accurate. It is suitable only for people from 45 years, and even then not always. And if you use this formula, then slimness and thinness would be considered something abnormal, respectively, all tall people with asthenic physique would be considered unhealthy.

Now added to this formula supplement in accordance with age. So, for women 20-30 years of age, it’s necessary to take 12% off, and after 50 years add 5-7%. But again, the new formula with the amendments does not take into account the particular physique, therefore many experts believe that it is better not to use it and determine the parameters using special tables.
