Over 35% women nationwide think curvy Kimberley Walsh has the best celeb body and UK women envy Beyonce’s bum most of all!

A survey of 2232 women across the UK by lingerie store Boux Avenue found that Skinny-Minnie Kate Middleton only rated 25% as most-wanted body with women in the West of England most likely to vote for Kate.

Ex-Towie star Lauren Goodger, famously proud of her curves, says: “If you think ‘skinny’ is sexy, I’d say think again! Sexiness comes in all shapes and sizes and that’s what this survey shows. We need to be body confident and looking good in the right lingerie really helps that."

Boux Avenue have been working with Curve Project London’s Safi Karina who’s been modeling their range of lingerie for women of all shapes and sizes.

Safi says: ”I want to show women who previously thought ‘skinny’ was the only way to get a foot over the fashion threshold that it’s not the only way to look great”
