I know it's a cliche, but beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

Everyone has their own individual dea of what makes a beautiful woman but there are also cultures around the world that have a standard of beauty.

On thelist.com, American journalist Pam Wright shared the observations from her travels around the world of what certain cultures found attractive in the women of their society.

1. The Long-necked Women of Myanmar

We've all seen images of the Karen women in parts of Myanmar and Thailand who wear heavy, brass rings around their neck.

The group of people known as the "long-neck" or "giraffe" tribe is really a sub-group of the Padaung.

The seemingly odd practice makes a woman more attractive to a possible mate because it is a sign of beauty and wealth.

Although it may appear to many Westerners that it must be torture for a woman to undergo the lengthening of her neck, this is really just a myth.

In fact, the brass rings create a visual illusion, making the woman's neck simply appear longer.

"The weight of the rings pushes down the collar bone, as well as the upper ribs, to such an angle that the collar bone actually appears to be a part of the neck," notes the website.

Kayan long neck women begin wearing the rings by the age of four or five, with more rings added as they become accustomed to the weight.

These rings can weigh up to 25 pounds.

2. Women on Iran like to Show off Their Nose Jobs

Nose jobs aren't that uncommon in the United States, but Iran has become the rhinoplasty capital of the world.2

Women are so proud of going under the knife that they will continue to wear their bandages long after they're needed, in order to show off their beauty.

Still others will purchase surgical tape to wear even if they haven't undergone the procedure.

Because women's bodies and hair are covered by a hijab and it makes little sense to spend money on clothes, they are keen to spend their money to enhance what people can see.

"They have become more fashion conscious because they are deprived of it," author of Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi, told ABC News.

"Every woman likes to be happy, likes to be secure, likes to look good, to feel good, and Iranians are no different." Well said.
