I have a user icon I'm trying to export to SVG. The arc of the body narrows when exporting to SVG but appears fine when in Illustrator. Any thoughts on why this is happening?

Illustrator v24.0

Rounding errors I suppose. In your SVG export dialogue, did you set Decimal Places to 0 or 1? Add a higher value for decimal places, default should be 3. For such a tiny drawing (32x32px) I'd recommend even more (like 6).
