I think 30-40% is unrealistic: something like 20-30% of females in that age group are overweight or obese, leaving 70-80% in an attractive weight bracket; are we really going to call half of those 'pretty'?

It may just be my media-biased high standards, but I don't think I'd call half of all thin young women that.
