It did occur to me when recently creating a female Alt that there seemed to be quite a contrast between the body shape ranges for Female Characters vs Male Characters.
Is it fair to say that the women's shape is more constrained?
If you max out a Male character on heavy on the body triangle, they look fat. Maybe not huge but notably overweight.
Do the same on a female character and I would say it looks like a more healthy realistic body shape for a woman. It does not look particularly overweight to me.
Muscle is similar. Men can become quite distinctly built with muscle. Women look toned but still petit. I realise that it is generally not a fashionable look for an overly muscular woman. I did think that the body shape range would rule out trying to create someone like Xena Warrior princess.
I accept I may be overreacting. I am not bitter or upset, it is just an observation. I wonder if it reflects a cultural bias on how women are expected to be shaped vs men.
