Happiness is a Flat Belly, Unless You're German, Then it's a Small Bum

LONDON, December 31, 2010 - A great body means different things to different nations. A study of what
people love, hate and wish to change about their about their bodies in 2011
found that there are distinct differences across Europe.

Spanish women love their legs but want bigger boobs. Spanish men like
their shoulders but want to be taller. In Germany women are happy with their
waists but long for a smaller bum whilst German men like their thighs but

flat tummy.
