British women are the most shapely in the world as they have bigger boobs and their backs are more slender, a new survey has found.
The best-selling UK bra cup size is a curvy DD while the most common underbra size - the measurement around a woman's ribcage - is 34 inches, a global study has revealed.

In Germany and Italy that is combined with a 38-inch underbra size, in France it's B and 36 inches and in Japan and China B and 34 inches, the Triumph international 'Bra Usage and Attitude Study' found.
"We might be getting fatter as a nation, but women's cleavages are expanding too. That's a challenge for bra manufacturers - but good news for British men," the Sun quoted nutritionist Lowri Turner as saying.
The study also found the average British woman's chest and hips are now 4cm bigger than in the 1950s.
The average woman is almost 2ins (5cm) taller at an average of 5ft 5ins and her weight has risen from 62kg to 65kg.
