Ultra Slim Physiques – China
In China, a more petite frame is often associated with femininity and attractiveness. Women with larger figures are considered unattractive and less likely to find husbands because of the societal pressure surrounding women’s bodies. These beauty standards have resulted in social media challenges where women show off their disturbingly small frames to be “perfect.”
The challenge showed women wrapping their arms behind their backs and reaching their belly buttons. Other challenges encouraged women to show how many coins would fit into the dip of their clavicle bone, while others had women compare their waists to sheets of paper.
