10. The shoulders of high-fashion models
Broad shoulders are common among high-fashion models. Whereas it may be pointed out that the reason high-fashion models tend to have broad shoulders is that clothes hang better from broad shoulders, clothing designed to fit normal shoulders will hang well from normal shoulders.
Additionally, high-fashion models with shoulder width closer to that of normal women do not necessarily look more feminine than the high-fashion models shown on this page, but they actually tend to better approximate the looks of boys in their early teens than the women shown on this page, partly because of reduced shoulder width; see the physique page for examples.
