    I had too much time on my hands the other day and decided to measure my waist to hip ratio.
    Waist: 24 inches
    Hips: 43 inches
    Ratio: 0.56

    Idk what this means :/ I know my hips are extremely wide compared to my waist for some reason. I weigh 51kg, so I'm not fat. Can someone explain?

    Are you a girl? That is not uncommon in females, wide hips are a sign of fertile genes for reproduction and giving birth to healthy offspring.

    Yeah I'm a girl, but they seem unusually wide compared to my waist :/ I don't think I've ever known a girl of a healthy weight with 43inch hips

    Just means you got wide hips, considering that your not overweight it is mostly down to genetics. It shouldn't be a problem depending on your height.

    Your luckier than other women since wide hips are seen as an attractive trait in women. I'm a guy with a good shoulder to waist ratio (male equivalent) and I consider myself lucky since most guys have narrower shoulders.

    Judging by the guidance picture posted your just curvy (which is a good thing) .
    Be happy with yourself.

    Forgot to mention your ethnicity will also play a factor, e.g. latins are more curvaceous than caucasians (in general).

    You have good proportions, with a nice round big ass. 0.60 would be ideal imo.

    Lmao I really wasn't seeking validation, because my numbers seemed really odd, comparing it to the average or even what's considered "ideal". I was confused and curious. If anything, I dislike how disproportionate they are. Get a ****ing grip

    So your waist is super slim and feminine, and your hips are really round and juicy...is that basically what you wanted to tell us? Lucky you. Unlucky for us to have another dumb "help me, I'm too sexy to be normal" thread.

    If you wanted research/data on what society apparently considers "ideal" :

    "He discovered that all winners of the "Miss America contests" from 1920 until the 1980`s had a WHR between 0.72 and 0.69. He also found that playboy's models WHR was between 0.71 and 0.68. For decades the ideal waist-to-hip ratio was consistently 0.7, despite the changing body weight of these models".

    However, I personally think that as long as you're healthy (not at risk of coronary heart disease or diabetes because of the ratio), then you shouldn't really worry about it. Don't think of yourself as weird, everyone's 'ideal' is subjective, be at inner-peace with your body!

    Was just about to say this haha. Psychology revision coming back to haunt me. I'm very thin so have a pretty poor ratio (can't remember exactly) but I still think I look good (not trying to be *that* person but I'm happy with how I look) so waist:hip ratio doesn't matter much as it's down to personal preference.
