Abstract

Wanting the perfect body is not a new phenomena. Human beings have evolved to signal (through our body shape) and detect (with our senses) important social and biological information. Body part ratios such as waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) and chest-to-waist ratio (CWR) are linked to our health, social dominance and reproductive success. Not all of us have evolved a perfect body shape. Fortunately humans are very sneaky and we cheat by wearing clothes that fool others into believing we are more fashionable, healthy and just more hot than we really are.
