Beautiful definition and size
There are several opinions about the notion of beauty, and the size of how a woman can be said to be beautiful.
Beauty is something relative. In fact we also agree that all women are physically beautiful. And only the beauty of the heart will truly distinguish one from another, reported by IDN Times (18/11/2017).
According to The Truth About Beauty , beauty is anything that is sexually attractive to men.
According to a survey conducted by Sindo News, from January 25, 2017 to February 9, 2017, through interviews in several major cities in Indonesia. The beautiful measure is; friendly and smiling, smart, white and clean skin, dimples, tall body, slim, long hair, exotic skin (dark color), long eyelashes, bright and shining eyes.

The fashion show is a self-confidence competition, because if it is called a beauty contest, those who feel they are not beautiful will not register to take part in the competition.
“It’s a self-confidence competition, of course, because if you have a beauty contest who doesn’t feel pretty, you don’t want to register for the competition,” said Wardah Syakira, PMI who once held a fashion show competition , Friday (29/03/2019).
