The perfect legs: what are their features?
Have you ever seen a woman in a mini skirt or hot pants think, “Wow! She has the perfect legs!”
Well, a plastic surgeon that spent months studying images of attractive legs thinks he may be able to reveal the secret behind perfect legs, according to The Daily Mail.
The surgeon spent 12 years studying more than 550 images of fashion models, athletes and celebrities and famous Roman and Greek statues and even Barbie dolls.
He found that the main aspect of the ‘perfect leg’ was straight bones structuring a ‘line’ from the top of the thigh way down to the ankle.
He says that the most attractive legs have curves only at the knee and the calf, and this makes a leg look a elegant and strong as possible. "As soon as the column departs from the straight axis, it deviates from our perception of beauty," he says, and goes further to add that it is women that need more some leg curves to maintain their sexiness.
A concave curve above the ankle is most attractive, he says. And the best legs do not have symmetrical curves on the inside and outside of the legs.
So why all the fuss about legs? According to the news source, the surgeon says that "over the last 50 years, with the changes in women's fashion, legs have become an important element of seduction.
The first common denominator of all attractive legs is their straightness. Attractive legs are straight and in continuity with the thighs.
The straightness of the leg models who advertise leg stockings and lingerie is noticeable. Those who are not feeling self-conscious about their legs may want to speak to a plastic surgeon about their options.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), liposuction can help remove unwanted fat from the thighs, while a lower body lift can also treat sagging skin and fat in the thighs, buttocks and hips.
