This article says that the “best” woman’s figure is not “hourglass”, but with a more “column” shape, i.e., equal size waist/hips.
Here’s the catch: They elide over the most important point slightly, i.e., “best” is defined as “make the most money” or “compete in the business world”.
So what they end up saying, in a round-about way, is: women who have more male hormones which result in more male-ish shapes do better in a male-optimized competition business society.
Put another way, the “best” woman shape is a Man’s shape!
