I saw your post today; and our Brazilian Women thread continues on.

One question: is the English spoken by Tay good, or does it have a different accent?
I could understand her just fine.

The Truth Behind Why (It Seems) All Brazilian Women Are Sexy

Toned, lithe and unfathomably hot. With all eyes on Rio, we find out what makes Brazilians the world’s most watchable nation…

BY CLEMMY MANZO
05/08/2016


There’s only one thing that rivals Brazil’s obsession with the beautiful game, and that’s its quest for a beautiful body.

The country breeds Victoria’s Secret models like we churn out tax avoiders.

And sure, Gisele, Adriana, Alessandra (need we go on?) scooped the genetic lottery, but they’re the blueprint for a nation chasing the ultimate in body perfection.

Echoes of their honed, toned, Amazonian curves glide along the Ipanema shoreline, as commonplace as drunken hen parties in Blackpool.

“For us, it’s always bikini season,” says Cristiana Arcangeli, the Brazilian entrepreneur behind Beauty’In collagen drinks and sweets, and to Brazil what Karren Brady is to England (smart, rich, gorgeous).

“We embrace our bodies in a way other women don’t. Brazilian women aren’t ashamed to look sexy. Vanity is not a bad thing here.

"There’s no shame in admitting you want to look good and being prepared to work hard to achieve it.”
So while we might not be ready to embrace their barely there swimwear preferences, their health and fitness secrets are another matter. Come on, ladies, spill the black beans...

While #strongnotskinny may have been the hashtag of many since 2014, it’s a mantra that’s long driven Brazilian body culture.


Strong Not Skinny

“Women here have never had the desire to be skinny,” says Arcangeli. Skinny just isn’t sexy and it’s sex appeal that defi nes attractiveness.

“Brazil still has a culture of machismo and Brazilian women want to look good for their men, not other women.”

So the curves are there to stay – and the motivation is to make them as toned as possible.

Cue a healthy gym habit. Memberships are cheap (good gyms are around Ł20 a month) and public areas like beaches are often fitted with free-to-use equipment, too.

In a country where the boom-boom (bum) is queen, there are entire sections devoted to butt toning.

Kickback machines, which work the glutes, are one of the most popular pieces of kit and women feel perfectly at home in the weights room.

“Brazilian women aim to be healthy and strong rather than just skinny,” says Ruth Ferguson, who lived in Brazil for a couple of years designing bikinis.

“It’s common to tell a girl she’s looking strong. In the UK, we might take this as an insult, but in Brazil it’s a genuine compliment.”
But those bodies aren’t built on squats alone– or empanadas for that matter. And when it comes to the Brazilian diet, it’s not just what they eat that’s significant, but how they eat.


The Brazilian Diet

Meal times are an event in Brazil. Wolfing down a sarnie while one-handedly tackling an Excel spreadsheet? It just isn’t done.

The lunch hour is a basic human right and often the main meal of the day. “Because we actually make the time to eat, there’s less of a demand for convenience food, so we eat very naturally. We don’t have much that’s processed,” explains Arcangeli.

While we might arrive home late from work to a bottle of Pinot and a rogue bag of Mini Cheddars, it’s a little different in Brazil, where even the middle classes often have maids.

“There’s no doubt eating healthily is easier when you have someone to prepare food for you,” admits Arcangeli.

“I’ll come back from the gym and my cook has an egg white omelette and a salad waiting for me.”

Outside the home, Brazil’s food industry is both cause and effect of a body-aware culture. The climate means fruit and vegetables are plentiful and cheap.

Acai – a superfood indigenous to the Amazon basin– was a staple in your average Brazilian juice bar long before we were hunting it down in Whole Foods.

And the weigh-before-you-pay salad bars are handy for fostering self-restraint.

In Rio, like other beach cities around the world (think Sydney and LA), healthy eating choices and cutting-edge fitness trends are born from the demands of a population that spends much of its downtime getting semi-naked in public.

They might be bred of vanity, but their upshot is health.

“Brazilian women don’t have restrictive diets but they’re very aware about making healthy choices,” says Paula Davidson, nutritionist to Rio’s elite.

“Most of my female clients base their diets on lean proteins, such as eggs, queijo minas [a soft, very light white cheese], yoghurt, meat, chicken, fish and seafood.”


And to drink...

And while they may love a party, Brasileiras don’t binge drink. Yes, they invented caipirinhas, but in Brazil, women get tipsy not trolleyed. “It’s just not common for girls to get out-of-control drunk,” says 29-year-old Fernanda Serson from Săo Paulo.

“It’s considered very unattractive... apart from during Carnival, when anything goes!”

A tip straight from the bars of Rio: ask for your caipirinha with sweetener or without sugar and replace the cachaça with vodka or sake. It will shave off valuable calories from the 350 you’d usually down (if only it could save you the hangover).

Besides, Brazilians don’t need to drink for confidence – they’re brought up on it. It’s inate in both genders.

“I think that is what sets us apart,” says celebrity personal trainer Leandro Carvalho. “My dad still wears his Speedos now even though he’s in his seventies! You just grow up in an environment where displaying your body is always the norm, so you’re very comfortable with it from an early age.”

Nip & Tuck Culture

And this is where we meet the shining paradox upon which our obsession with Brazilian beauty rests. This may be the country of body confidence, but it’s also the home of lipo and butt implants.

Brazil has the second highest rate of cosmetic surgery in the world (after the US), with an estimated 1.5 million cosmetic procedures yearly. A staggering 38% of them performed on women aged 19 to 35.

Its cosmetics industry is the third largest in the world (soon to overtake Japan in second place). Weekly manis, pedis and waxes are standard and extreme procedures such as chemical peels are on par with a trip to the dentist.

So why does a culture that seems so comfortable with flashing more than a little skin feel the need to go to such lengths to perfect it?

Alexander Edmonds, author of Pretty Modern: Beauty, Sex And Plastic Surgery In Brazil explains it:

“Because there is no taboo around the desire to look good, cosmetic surgery has become normalised.”
It’s come to be seen as a routine, self-esteem-boosting part of life.

Even Brazil’s most powerful woman, President Dilma Rousse, had an extreme makeover (including eyelid surgery) before winning the 2010 elections.

“In the US or UK, a politician’s cosmetic surgery might be seen as evidence of vanity or a sign of untrustworthiness,” says Edmonds. “But in Brazil, she’s just making the best of herself.”

In fact, cosmetic procedures are seen as a right, deserved by all. Some clinics over discounted, even free, surgery – largely thanks to surgeon Ivo Pitanguy, ‘the pope of plastic surgery’.

His Rio ward now performs 1,800 ops a year for people with low incomes, including cosmetic procedures like butt lifts.

Of course, knowing about their love of surgery doesn’t make the cult of Brazilian beauty any less alluring.

Any woman who has the body and the confidence to wear the sorts of bikinis that creep into places we’ve repeatedly banned our boyfriends from will always be a source of fascination.

But while we can still afford our gym membership, we’ll be taking the long road to a Brazilian body, thanks very much. Roll on the squats.

Ah, that explains Larissa Lima from 90-Day Fiance' and all the cosmetic surgery she had done. I believe Coltie paid over $1000 for her Botox injections, then Erickie shelled out big bucks for her boob and butt jobs. Then Larissa got deported back to Brazil, so neither one of those guys got to enjoy that very long.

Yes, Comrade Ray; and from my personal observations in Brazil, I see that Brazilian women seek to enhance the beauty that Nature has given them...
