We bring you a list of the top women's physiques, as per the findings of a survey by UK fitness training company Lifestyle 247 Bootcamps.

Thin is no longer in -- the latest research conducted to determine what people consider a desirable physique has some surprising results.

UK fitness training company Lifestyle 247 Bootcamps has released the results of a recent poll and established that an athletic body is what almost everyone wants.

Seventy two per cent of women respondents said they'd prefer an athletic figure to a waifish or skinny one, while 81 per cent of the men polled would like to date a woman with an athletic body. What's more, 35 per cent of the women said they feel 'repulsed' when they see skinny celebrities.

As for the most sought-after physiques in stardom, here they are!

1. Jessica Ennis

The UK's Olympic heptathlete champion beat out competition from several entertainers.

The Daily Mail quoted Yasmin Mohammed, founder of Lifestyle 247 Bootcamps as saying, "'We have noticed our female clients are more focused on toning and sculpting their bodies as opposed to just losing weight and many commented on how desirable Jessica Ennis' body was during the Olympics -- the most enviable body part being her abs!"
