"Beauty cannot be judged objectively, for what one person finds beautiful or admirable may not appeal to another," says the Oxford Dictionary. And now, a new experiment conducted by a UK medical website called Superdrug Online Doctor backs this idea up.

Tweaks were made to the hair color, waistline, skin tone and boobs size, among others. Photos from China and Italy ended up with a small waist, thin arms and legs, while the final output from our very own showed that we prefer voluptuous women.
