    Height to Waist to Shoulder Width ratios?

    Just wondering what would be an ideal ratio of the waist:height:shoulder width to have a nice v-taper look?

    I'm 5'5 with 31inch waist, shoulder width is yet to be measured.
    What's the waist size of other short teens like me?

    Never mind shoulder isn't in there but I think it should be 1.4 times waist to look the most aesthetic

    59" shoulders huh? Keep dreaming and learn to measure right.

    To answer your question, the golden ratio 1.618 is ideal for maximum aesthetics. At your height that would be 50" shoulders.
