Perceptions of Perfection is an interesting study into what different countries find attractive.
The study located designers from 18 nations spanning five continents and asked them to modify a base picture so that it was close to a perfect body ... in that country.
The designers’ changes made some of these images almost unrecognisable compared with the original photo.

Photoshop her form. The idea is to Photoshop and retouch this woman to make her more attractive to the citizens of your country. We are looking to explore how perceptions of beauty change across the world. Multiple designers are involved. You can modify clothing, but her form must be visible. No nudity. All other changes, including those to her shape and form, are up to you.

China had the lightest (7.28 stones), which translates to an estimated BMI of 17. According to the NHS, “Adults with anorexia generally have a BMI below 17.5.”
