Abstract: The present study investigated the relative contribution of four characteristics to attractiveness of the female body: waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), breasts, buttocks and thighs. Using a program for computer animation (DAZ 3D) 81 female figures were generated. Figures were created as combinations of 4 characteristics  3 equidistant sizes (small, medium and large). Participants (N=260) of both genders rated the figures on 5-step attractiveness scale. Multiple regression analyses have shown that WHR and breast size are significant partial predictors of attractiveness for both male and female participants: the smaller the WHR and the larger the breasts, the higher the attractiveness ratings.
