what different cultures consider attractive

Hey.

In a current project of mine, a female main(ish) character is going to be, uh, "voluptuous." Essentially, big breasts, wide hips, a little tub on the tummy. I'm looking for a number of cultures that would typically find this unattractive. Or, in another sense, cultures that find small, dainty stick-thin girls attractive. (Um, other than the U.S., please.)

So, if anyone could suggest some countries that fall into either of those categories (considering they're essentially the same), that would be WONDERFUL.

Thanks.

Note: information from any time period is welcome, as long as it's noted or implied. This is a non-real world story, therefore I have a little leeway.
