By Nick Allen, PA

The ideal female form for a long life and healthy heart is the hour-glass shape exemplified by actresses Jennifer Lopez and Sophia Loren.

A curvaceous, pear shape means a woman is more likely to have stores of adiponectin, a protein hormone which has anti-inflammatory effects and is associated with reduced risk of heart attacks.

Danish scientists found the ideal measurements for a woman are at least size 14 with hips of 40 inches or more.
