    La valorisation de la minceur est plus ou moins forte selon les pays, et peut s'imposer davantage à l'un ou l'autre sexe. On peut distinguer quatre groupes de pays : ceux majoritairement européens telle la France, où la pression de la minceur est plus forte sur les femmes que sur les hommes. Des pays comme l'Uruguay où la minceur est davantage un idéal pour les hommes, une corpulence plus élevée étant préférée pour les femmes. Des pays où la minceur est peu valorisée pour les deux sexes comme l'Irlande. Enfin, la Corée du Sud, où la pression de la minceur est très forte sur les hommes comme sur les femmes. Si en Corée du Sud la corpulence réelle et les idéaux sont proches, les situations sont très contrastées selon le sexe dans la plupart des pays.
