What do Audrey Hepburn, Kate Moss, Marilyn Monroe, Twiggy, Sophie Loren, and Elle Macpherson have in common? Well, besides being legendary beauties, their waist to hip ratio is .7. According to Dr. Devendra Singh a psychologist at the University of Texas, who has spent the last twenty-five years studying the correlation between body shape, health, and perceptions of beauty, all of these women’s waists are noticeably narrower than their hips. Scientifically this is known as the waist to hip ratio, which according to Dr. Singh is what makes men find certain women attractive. This is because fundamentally, the hourglass curves of a woman signify fertility and men are biologically programmed to be drawn to those lucky enough to be blessed with said curves.

So, are you feeling optimistic enough to work out your ratio? To do so, simply divide your waist measurement by your hip measurement to get your very own ratio. However, if you require a little help to shave off some vital inches (and don’t we all!) here is our pick of the top toning treatments, designed to promote inch loss and detoxification:

Decleor Silhouette Aroma Wrap at Titanic Spa

This complete detoxifying experience includes an exfoliation and body wrap. The treatment disperses energy-sapping toxins while a marine algae mask rich in minerals breaks down fatty deposits, drains away toxins and eliminates water retention.
