NEW INFOGRAPHIC: 1,968 Online Shoppers Reveal Their Ideal Body Size - And That Of The Opposite Sex


We found that the current size of men lines up with what they believe to be ideal, whereas a majority of women are a size 16, but wish they were a size 8. It’s not all bad news though: We polled genders about ideals for the opposite sex and the results were heart-warming. Men think that a curvy, medium height woman is ideal (tall and thin garnered 0% of the vote), while women found guys of a medium height and an average build to be most attractive.

 we made some interesting discoveries: Men don’t actually believe that models have the ideal body shape, while women don’t seem to like overly muscular men.
The survey also found that 57% of online buyers are somewhat satisfied with what they see in the mirror, with small percentages being totally satisfied or totally unsatisfied with their physical appearance. Not surprisingly, 33% of these shoppers are also hoping to lose more than 20 pounds to be at their ideal weight, lining up with the weight loss necessary to bring the average size 16 woman down to a size 8. So while women have loftier goals in terms of the perfect body size, they also know how much it would take to get there.
