I reckon for the most part, every beauty contestant could point out a part of her body that she doesn't like-- thighs a little heavy, bust that she augments with "cutlets" for the contests, arms a little too skinny, whatever.
I do believe in this country, most manufacturers aim for a 10" difference between waist and hips in clothing. So if your waist waist was 26 your hips would be 36, to fit into whatever size of clothes that is. Waist 28, hips 38, etc.
When I first started out on Spark I had more than a 10 inch difference between my waist and hips, and I was hoping to just get that difference down to where the waist didn't gap so bad, in pants that fit my hips. And I've managed to do that-- strength training really helps. But a lot of our body shape has more to do with genetics than most of us would want to know. Bust size, for example. Even if you lose a lot of weight, if you were large busted to begin with, you will still probably be large busted after losing all the weight. If you have wide hips due to bone structure, you can lose the fat but the bones remain the same.
