What is the standard of beauty for women in your country and what do you prefer?

I am from India and women here are supposed to be tall (atleast 5"5), lightskinned (but not very white... Ik kinda racist) and slim (with big boobs and a nice butt) to be considered good looking. Also curly hair is looked down upon so permanent straightening is a big deal here. Light eyes and hair are considered exotic and amazingly beautiful and women with these traits are worshipped. A flat stomach or perfectly toned body aren't given much importance though (not as much as the West). Also having a pretty big nose (but straight) and big eyes are considered beautiful. Women are also supposed to have lonf flowing hair. Dimples were considered evil in the olden days cause it meant the woman is controlling but its becoming a beauty trend and even praised (this thing I heard from my grandma)
Eg. (I think both these women are beautiful BTW) the top picture is an ideal indian woman and the bottom one is considered from below average to ugly. What kind of look do you prefer on a woman?

  • In my country the beauty standard for women are being slim, tan, have straight hair, dark big eyelashes, full lips, having medium/big boobs and wearing fashionable Western clothing. For men the beauty standard are being tall, fit, tan, having a strong jawline and being fashionable. Both women and men wears skinny denim jeans a lot.

    I likes dark features best like black or dark brown hair, brown eyes and a tan or brownish skin. I also thinks being slim or fit looks good at people.

    Picture 1 & 2: Scandinavian ideals. Picture 3 & 4: What I finds beautiful.

  • Girl... you need to meet more Indians πŸ˜‚
    And Vanessa Hudgens is average to ugly? Seriously?πŸ˜‚
    Curly hair is looked down upon and women are supposed to have long flowing hair? From my personal preference - I do like long hair, but not necessarily straight. And from my personal experience - people tend to like girls with shorter hair more (am in college with one girl with short shoulder length hair and the whole class of 60 wants to get her πŸ˜†)

    So yeah.. maybe you should meet more people before making those assumptions

  • I'm from Bangladesh so the standards are pretty similar to that in your country, like hello neighbor! Anyway for women it would be:
    - Fair
    - Height ranging from 5'0" to 5'6", taller than that is way too tall.
    - Long and thick hair.
    - Big eyes and moderately thick eyebrows.
    - Slim nose with a nose bridge not too high.
    - soft thin lips.
    - no one here likes extremely fat or extremely thin but people generally don't mind the vast in-between. People definitely love curves.

    No one necessarily worships light eyes and hair though. In fact many people don't like light eyes and hair, and prefer that even fair girls have dark hair and dark eyes.

    • Yep you put it in words.

  • Indian here. Your observation is wrong. Most of the guys I know would go for the second girl. Also your views are completely North Indian. Go check in South India, how many brown chicks are making guys drool. These standards that you mentioned are mostly based on Bollywood, which is shit itself. Kareena ( woman from 1st pic ) is not even that desirable.

I said her standards are North Indian, how the hell did it translate to being jealous of North Indians? I speak fluent Kannada and I've been thriving in South. You on the other hand are like a frog in the well who wouldn't survive anywhere out of his comfort zone. Because of guys like u, Northies get a bad name in South. Go back to whatever Engineering college hole u came out of with your narrow minded views !

  • I am from Ireland and I find the girls are much harder on themselves than any guys - I think they are influenced by Insta girls and reality TV etc where in reality most of them are very divorced from reality - The standard beauty we see among them is like the top 5%

Body types of women ex. Kangana ranaut , bhumi padnekar , radhika apte and many more , yes Kareena Kapoor is beautiful but for not everyone as I like Alia Bhatt or Jacqueline more than her.

  • There's no one single standard of beauty for me in terms of what I find attractive in a woman. The wonderful thing is that there's just too much natural diversity when it comes to how women can be beautiful, whether that has to do with hair color, skin tone, body shape and size, breast size, etc. There are infinite amount of ways for women to be beautiful.

  • In America it's young, thin, with wide hips. Ie in that picture the bottom is better purly because of age. If you a man or woman and you don't work out at least once a week your bottom of the dating stack. Also women needs to have traits directly linked with being good mother's and men should have those directly linked to being able to provide and protect.

  • Get your facts straight. Most Indian girls don't workout in the gym so goodbye big boobs and asses. And talking about flat stomach, Most tinder girls don't have it because they are foodies. Curly hair (not too much ) is not looked down upon. Dimples are sexy Take preity zinta as an example. As far as skin colour is concerned, it is not the guy's opinion more rather than his mom (a female ) which forces whiter skin. And by the way height is in question. Every girl gets lots of attention not matter what height she is. Don't try to reverse your height criterias on men. by the way nowadays women love white skinned guys so please don't bitch about skin colour. Indians are the most racist people on the planet which is proven long back

    I prefer someone who cares about her fitness.

    • Well it happened 3- 4 years ago. My friend is an event photographer. He was asked to cover a store launch and Kareena was the main guest. She arrived late ( 3hrs after the given time ) and was still not ready to attend the event. She took another 2 hrs to get ready. The event was supposed to start at 6 pm. by the time she was ready, it was way past 11 pm. This woman didn't even apologize to anyone for making them wait too long. But acted like a queen.

    • Thousands were waiting outside the store just to take a look at her. My friend was specifically asked to take her pictures, so he was trying to get closer. Again, she got irritated, because according to her, he wasn't getting her good angle. She kept asking him to take pictures from different angles while he was struggling with the pushy crowd. In the end, she got angry. She cursed & yelled at him that he wasn't good enough to be a photographer. Needless to say, my friend was asked to leave halfway through his work and wasn't even paid the full amount afterwards. My friend got a bad reputation after this event and couldn't get assignments for a while. Still he doesn't talk shit about her to maintain his professional integrity.

  • I think white skin that is tanned (natural or artificial) (or as light as possible if not white) and with long straight or wavvy hair, a small nose, and a fit body (not muscular but definitely a flat stomach) and among some subcultures a large booty is really desired.

  • Kareena Kapoor is a hoe. The second girl looks better. Well. Im Romanian. Here as long as you are not overweight you are considered beautiful. You have to have big boobs , small waist and huge butt to be considerate Attractive.

  • Vanessa's considered ugly? I love her!
    Anyway, I'm from Japan which is a conservative country, so people tend to not care much about the body, or at least they don't talk about the body much, although women are preferred to be thin - but that's only because it's the norm. You don't see many overweight Japanese women. Having big boobs is just considered a plus and people prefer small butts over big ones. Japanese people like women who're beautiful with long black or brown hair, with a cute face and girly. Of course, there are many Japanese men who prefer women with curves, but the standard beauty is what I just described. NamiΓ© Amuro (in the pics) is considered one of the ideals in Japan.

  • I feel like the current "trend" for how women should look is "skinny thick". Like, giant ass, giant chest but teeny tint waist and flat stomach. Unfortunately being "thicc"goes handin hand with a little extra body fat. Long hair is also traditionally pretty. Not too pale but not too dark. Hair that has perfect beachy waves. Big lips.

    Think, "insta model"
