What does a "perfect body" look like? It depends who you ask -- and where they are.

UK online pharmacy Superdrug Online Doctors recently created a project called "Perceptions Of Perfection" to illustrate a powerful message about the various perceptions of beauty in different countries. 

Using a photo of a model wearing a bra, underwear and pink wedges, the site asked graphic designers from 18 different countries to retouch the image according to each country's idea of the ideal female figure. 

"Widely held perceptions of beauty and perfection can have a deep and lasting cultural impact on both women and men," the site states. 

"The goal of this project is to better understand potentially unrealistic standards of beauty and to see how such pressures vary around the world." 

The results are incredibly eye-opening as the designers not only made changes to the model's figure, but also to her hair, eye-shape, waist-size, breasts and even the woman's shoes. 

As a result of the vast differences in body size, the site took the study one step further and estimated what the "perfect" woman would weigh. 

According to the site, China and Italy’s submissions were the thinnest, and Spain’s was the heaviest.
