Abstract

The purpose of this research is to clarify the relationship between the female body type and posture and the aesthetic impression it creates. The criterion of judgment of the beauty of the female body was based on the degree of body mass (BMI), the degree of bust, waist and hips, but also evaluated the impression added by posture. We divided the BMI into 5 levels, body types into 3 levels, and posture into 6 types, making sample images created using a 3D body scanner. In the research part 1, we used 40 samples that emphasized the body line, and in part 2 we evaluated using 19 samples assuming loose clothing. Questionnaires were conducted with adult women using the SD method with 19 adjective pairs. As a result of computing the total of the scores and the principal component analysis, the first principal component axis showed 'beauty, attractiveness' and the second principal component axis shows 'plumpness, slimness'. Regardless of the sharpness of the body line, the weak upright type had the lowest score for positive impression. The balanced upright type was considered to be beautiful. The impression of the form of women showed that the elements of posture are related to beauty.
