From tall and slim to petite and curvy – and everything in between – women across the globe come in all shapes and sizes.
But now a new debate has been sparked about the 'ideal female shape' on Q&A site Quora.
One user asked members to comment on what the perfect body type is – based on which country users were from and what they personally preferred.
According to the responses, here are the ideal types for each country…
American Ryan reveals: 'In my country, I think the standard image of beauty is probably the same as in many other places; tall, curvy, blonde and blue eyes (though light brown eyes are also really popular), and either fair skin or tanned.'
Perhaps the most unusual description comes from Nat in China, who says: 'The skinnier the better. A4 challenge is a "thing", iPhone 6 challenge is also a "thing".'
The A4 challenge is when women aspire to have a torso the width of an A4 sheet of paper and the iPhone6 challenge sees them seeking legs that are as slim as an iPhone 6.
An Egyptian user named Ahmed notes that historically 'curvy, large breasted women' are deemed to be the most attractive in his country.
Stanislav, who describes himself as a 'problem solving maniac', believes that the best female body type for most males in his home country is 'tall, tight body, slim and big boobs.'
Nadège swoops in for Switzerland and she advises that 'rather thin women, middle-tall, more with brown hair than blonde, fair eyes usually' are deemed the most attractive in her country.

Mona Tauqir, who describes herself as a 'human resource practitioner and psychology enthusiast', says the ideal woman in her neck of the woods has a 'shapely waist and hips' but is 'petite' and has a busty F-cup.
Alec insists that 'petite, not too skinny, large (but not ridiculous) breasts and shapely curves' are the ideal in the UK. He also says that a height of about 5ft 7in is the ideal in Great Britain.
An anonymous user from Bangladesh says that women must be at least 5ft 2in tall and have dense and black hair, big black eyes and 'non-thin eyebrows'. He also says he rates a sharp nose and a 'moderately curvy physique.'
The user also shed some light on what type of personality he thinks men from his country deem attractive, revealing: 'modest and courtly personality and lifestyle is ideal'.
Another anonymous user said the French ideal is a 'mix of fashion model standard beauty with a girl-next-door kind of vibe', adding that they can 'even be tomboy'.
The user concluded: 'Big boobs are overrated, small t**s for the win.'
