"The upper part of the chest should be relatively short and wide, 

independent of the size of the shoulders, for this shows the vital 

organs which it contains are sufficiently developed. 

 

"The waist should taper a little farther than the middle of the trunk, 

and be marked, especially in the back and loins, by the approximation 

of the hips. 

 

"The waist should be narrower than the upper part of the trunk and its 

muscles, because the reverse indicates the expansion of the stomach, 

liver, and great intestine, resulting from their excessive use. 

 

"The back of woman should be more hollow than that of man; for 

otherwise the pelvis is not of sufficient depth for parturition. 

 

"Women should have more extended loins than men, at the expense of the 

superior and inferior parts, for this conformation is essential to 

gestation. 

 

"The abdomen should be larger in woman than in man, for the same 

reason. 

 

"Over all these parts the cellular tissue, and the plumpness connected 

with it, should obliterate all distinct projection of muscles. 

 

"The surface of the whole female form should be characterized by its 

softness, elasticity, smoothness, delicacy, and polish, and by the 

gradual and easy transition between the parts. 

 

"The moderate plumpness already described should bestow on the organs 

of woman great suppleness. Plumpness is essential to beauty, 

especially in mothers, because in them the abdomen necessarily 

expands, and would afterwards collapse and become wrinkled. 

 

"An excess of plumpness, however, is to be guarded against. Young 

women who are very fat are cold and prone to barrenness. 

 

"In no case should plumpness be so predominant as to destroy the 

distinctness of parts." 

 

A male and female formed on the above models would be well matched and 

have fine children.
