You didn't read what I wrote.

I said nothing about attractiveness,I mentioned it because of health,esp regarding waist to height ratio,which studies show is a much better indicator of health than Waist to hip ratio.

How to calculate your WHR:
1. measure your waist (at the narrowest point, for many women it is just above the belly button)
2. measure your hips (at the widest point).
3. WHR = w/h

And for fun, let's add in another factoid about yourself too.

No need to post measurements if you don't want to. It is up to you!

But here is my question, are your hips mostly hips or mostly butt. I find that people with more butt than hips actually look less curvy (from the front) because their butt tends to stick out more.)

Mine is .75, and I am more hippy.

Share away, or just take the poll and comment!
.77 WHR
Waist 31", hips 40"-so that's a 9 inch difference, not quite 10.
Dunno' how to assess contribution of my hips vs. my hindquarters-
but from the front, my hips are pretty evident (hourglass shape).
