It seems that our standard of what a perfect body looks like depends on the country we are from. The British online pharmacy Superdrug Online Doctors asked designers from 18 countries to take a photo of a woman and photoshop it to their culture’s beauty standard. The project “Perceptions of Perfection” had shocking results.
The woman’s waist was made smaller and her breasts larger, this seemed to be the most focused area for all of the countries. China and Italy had the most drastic and unrecognizable change.
The designers consisted of 14 women and 4 men. Superdrug’s press release stated, “the goal of this project is to better understand potentially unrealistic standards of beauty and to see how such pressures vary around the world."
Take a look at what the perfect body looks like from 18 countries.
