shoulders - shoulder width for females

The shoulder width is evaluated on the basis of a comparison of distances between acromion dx. and sin. and the maximum hip width. The maximum hip width stands for the distance between the two remotest points in the hip area in one plane. In females, this trait is also divided into three categories: 1. narrow shoulders (a difference up to 5 %), 2. moderately wide shoulders (a difference 5 % – 10 %), 3. wide shoulders (difference above 10 %).
