I have read and heard countless times that guys prefer women with curves and more meat on their bones but I’m starting to wonder about that.
And, like everything else, I will answer it honestly without sugar-coating.The good news for women out there is that the supposed ideal weight you’re aiming for might be significantly lower than what a man would consider ideal.There was a study I read in college about body weight and attractiveness in women.They had hundreds of men look at pictures of women’s bodies and rate them according to which they found the most attractive.Then, hundreds of women looked at these same pictures and rated how they than what the women believed to be the ideal weight that men want.So it’s really important to realize that whatever a particular man prefers, he probably wants you to have a little more meat on your bones than you think he ideally wants.
(This study and others can be found in The Evolution of Desire by David M Buss) Now I am not saying go cancel your gym membership and eat a tub of ice cream on the couch.
Weight means your entire body weight – muscle, organs, fat, water, etc. Fit means that you have a low body fat percentage (for women, having a body fat percentage in the lower 20s is good).
To start things off, I can tell you that one of the things that guys will talk about is who we think is a hot chick.
I can also tell you that men have a wide range of what they consider to be an ideal weight and their “type” of woman.
Some guys like skinny girls with no boobs and some guys don’t mind a little “thickness” as long as the girl is curvy with a big set protruding the front of her.
However, women are constantly dieting and exercising to make their bodies look ideal for men (and to be healthy too, of course).
