New Study: “Women want ultra-slim boyish figures, while men lust after curvacious full hips and an ample bust”

article-2601389-1CFCF8E600000578-127_638x500 - New Study: "Women want ultra-slim boyish figures, while men lust after curvacious full hips and an ample bust"

At high request, here’s a story on a new study that came to the conclusion that women consider ‘thin’ as their body ideal ad men, as cliche as it may be, ‘want curves’ – from Daily Mail:

These four body images, comprised of celebrities’ best features, reveal the staggering differences in how men and women perceive the perfect body. A new survey has gathered the preferences of both genders, creating ‘body beautiful’ composites using the physical attributes of the world’s most beautiful people.

It appears that women covet a ultra-slim boyish figure, while men lust after curvacious full hips and an ample bust. While women opted for the boyish hips of youthful Noah actress Emma Watson, 23, men plumped for the fuller curves of 34-year-old model Kelly Brook.

The biggest difference is in our choice of favourite face. Women aspire to the supermodel features of model Cara Delevingne, 21, with men more attracted to the softer features of actress Megan Fox, 27. Ladies admire the pert and perky breasts of Jennifer Aniston, 45, while men appreciate the fuller bust of US TV star Kim Kardashian, 33.

When it comes to hair, long luscious locks are a winner for everyone – but while women are enthralled by the Duchess of Cambridge, 32, their halves would love to run their fingers through 29-year-old Scarlett Johnsson’s mane. Women are less concerned than men about age when picking celebrities with admirable bodies. Gwyneth Paltrow, a 41-year-old mother of two, has the best toned tummy, according to other women. And 50-year-old Elle Macpherson – still known as The Body – came top of the female poll for perfect pins.

What do you think of the results of this study? Are such generalizations of beauty ideals beneficial?

SUCH a waste. DM clearly made all this stuff up– I doubt they actually did a survey and had people name their choices.
It’s also kind of lame how they include the ages of each person, AND saying Megan Fox has soft facial features? Are they blind?

On top of that… I see hardly any difference between the two composites.

The only thing that looks like a 12-yr old boys body is a 12-yr old boys body, and liking a woman that has slim hips doesn’t make you gay (and im sure a lot of gay people would be offended that pedophilia is still confounded with homosexuality).

A woman looks like a woman whether she can fill up a C or D cup, or if she’s a AA. Neither figures are boyish by any means, just different ranges of features. The 1st woman is essentially the same proportions except less exaggerated at the bust and hips.

THANK you! I was wondering if I was the only one sat here thinking ‘Um…aren’t they pretty much the same, except one seems to have a *slightly* wider pair of hips, with the same waist size and a considerably bigger bust?’ There’s nothing ‘boyish’ to me about the first woman’s figure- I’m pretty syre no man would kick a woman with a body like that, not to mention Cara Delvigne’s face out of bed; I personally don’t find her striking, but she’s not exactly UNattractive either!

That may well be the case- however, my point was that, at least in my experience, men like various body types. There’s a reason one guy’s ideal woman is Beyonce, while another’s is Adriana Lima; Beyonce has the waist-to-hip ratio of the ‘woman’ on the right, while Adriana’s probably closer to the one on the left, but many men would still find Adriana extremely attractive. Also, as I stated previously, both ideals are extremely unattainable (without surgery)- Adriana has an undefined waist, but is slim with amazing legs, while Beyonce’s got a curvier waist/hips but people often comment that her… Read more »

This is possibility the most ridiculous comment I’ve ever read. I can’t believe that in this day and age women are still being told that they are unfeminine, sexless beings just because they have fewer curves and small breasts. Some of the world’s most beautiful women are completely flat-chested, let’s imagine Keira Knightley or Olivia Palermo, for a start, and I’m pretty sure their husband and fiancé would be saddened to read your comment; not to mention, the line of men who would want to sleep with either of these gorgeous girls is probably incalculably long!

LOL this is such a joke. And in all honesty, the biggest difference is breast size. Men like big breasts, wow!! Craziness!
In conclusion men want ridiculous, barbie measurements whereas women want a body that could actually exist in nature although, a slightly less busty one.
I bet if both of those “women” were real, they would weigh close to the same. The ideals are very similar in terms of body composition

Carolina
Guest

What? I think you got it all wrong, Barbie measurements are more simmilar to the body of the left and the body on the right (without the b~~~~) is actually more attainable than the other. I am from Venezuela and all I see is curvy women everywhere, it is VERY rare when I get to see bodies like the one on the left (women’s choice)

This study is stupid bc men react with their p—-es not their brains. If a woman with super tight clothes on, and her breasts toppling over her shirt walks by, a man is going to say “I want that” bc he SEE’s sex. If that same woman walked by in baggy sweats and a baggy t-shirt, it would do nothing for him. Men are visual. So if a slim girl with let’s say an A cup or B cup walked by in a tight tank top with no bra on, and let’s say it’s cold outside (ahem), a guy will… Read more »

Oh come on, let’s say it: 99% of men prefer big breast. They do not find sexy an AA cup and never will. Just like most women prefer fit guys. It’s normal.

Guest
AlyssaMoh

they might like bigger breasts, but if they had a choice between DD and FFs, they would go for the DDs, not the biggest ones possible.
I think a man likes breasts with nice shape vs size.
Given a lovely shaped B or C, they would chose that over a less shapely D or DD.

annabanana
Guest

this is very true – my good friend who is a TOTAL b❆❆b guy doesn’t like breasts that are so big that they lose their shape – he prefers more like full C’s and D’s which tend to be perkier than ginormous saggy breasts.

but, particulars aside, what alisha said is still true- b❆❆bs are b~~~~. a woman is a woman. sex is sex. no matter the details. there is a man out there (and usually many men) for every body type and woman.

there is a grain of truth to this, but it’s still a stupid experiment. i never understood the compilation method, really makes no sense to me at all. this is all about averages and we all know what the averages are. people’s individual tastes vary SO much more than this, and are far more interesting imo.

Perhaps I wouldn’t fall into the category of what men (supposedly) want in a woman. For me it’s more appropriate to choose this kind of material I’d want for a Colorado horse ranch. Yet another study was done before this which seems to be more fitting than something so ephemeral and subject to change with age. They listed women with the most beautiful eyes in the world on Zimbio if memory serves. Ashwara Rye, Charlize Theron, Kristen Kreuk, even some unidentified women from the Muslim world were photoed. Old fashioned as it must sound these women all had something in… Read more »

If I were a swimmer who wanted to make it to the Olympics I would like to have slimmer hips and long legs – I would be better able to make ideal times and be more efficient with my movements.

It depends what you want as a person. Not every girl dreams of having DDs, a lot of girls are tall and slim and love it, while a lot of other girls are bootylicious and dig that about themselves.

Well of course this is obvious. Men are going to choose a blend of the main women they see in the media. Women are going to do the same. Men and women are fed different images of ‘perfection’, swallow it whole, and believe it. The media really does a fabulous job at creating insecurity within people. Especially with the ideals being different. Lets face it though, they really do look quite similar. So what then mens one has a few extra curves (really?! Never thought they’d have that in p—!) The female one has slighly slimmer curves (fashion magazines, anyone!?).… Read more »

I agree 100% with you. It’s an image with what we have been brought up with since we were little, so that’s why it’s so real for us.
Also I agree both the ideals in the survey are almost the same. Both the women are thin and have good legs, only the men’s ideal has much more emphasis on curves. She looks like the model you would find in men’s magazins.

Lol well I don’t like either picture, neither are my exact ideal and I think they’re both extremely scary. This is dumb and a waste of time.

yes. i think with time you realize that they are just men on the street, and they cannot hurt you by looking, so try to enjoy the attention from the people you actually want it from (your crush or boyfriend) and just laugh off everyone else. you are not defined by your body, or what other people think of it!

My gosh I’m so sorry you had to experience that while you were in Italy! Unfortunately, as I am Italian myself, I must say that this is something extremely annoying and mortifying that most women have to go through here.

Samantha

Ooops, I accidentally liked this when I was wanting to hit reply. I agree that the behaviour of some/ many men can be really dehumanizing and chauvinistic. However, I really don’t think it’s in their nature to act that way. I put it down mainly to societal conditioning. It’s wrong that it happens, but society/ the media really do condition men and women to think of women as objects to be judged based on their physical characteristics. There are nice men out there that don’t do this though!

Chiara
Guest
Chiara

I totally see your point. The thing is that here in Italy this IS really a problem, and it’s not just about older men being pigs… even younger one often use not-so-nice words to refer (compliment?!?!) to girls. Honestly I became so afraid of rape lately that I can barely go around by myself after 8 pm 🙁
When I was in Norway I noticed how different that was… a girl could just walk around at 2 am and still fell safe…

It sounds like there really needs to be some changes made as a society there! Women should never have to feel threatened, but I guess it does happen unfortunately. It’s sad, because it is really hard to make these changes as a whole!

I had the same problem in Southern Italy last year when I went on vacation there. I was harressed all the time, and followed by men in their car late in the evening. I was on vacation alone and I stayed in a hotel. Even in the hotel men how worked in the hotel trying to hit om me, sometimes even following to my room. All the attention wasn’t pleasant of flattering, it was really intimidating. Mostly in Southern European countries men are like this, but I my experience in Italy was the worst.

Wanting curves is one thing, wanting barbie proportions is another. Very few women look like that picture on the right without surgery. It doesn’t look that much different except for the huge b~~~~. And being less curvy doesn’t mean that you look like a boy. I’m so sick of hearing that argument. It’s rude and redundant.

james

nothing too surprising its a struggle to not say anything banal about the only change i’d make is having beyonces legs, I prefer a bit more thigh on a woman

to me generalizations is actually the real deal, “beauty ideal” posits that only one thing is attractive, generalization would mean the opposite as that takes an aggregate, that more men like rosies legs not that rosies legs fits the predefined standard best.

I understand what you are saying, however this is based purely on evolutionary theories. I personally don’t agree with this theory, as there are so many flaws. I don’t think we can draw such conclusions between men and women, and completely exclude the media and societal influence, and the role that these play in shaping gender roles and ideals for males and females.

Nope, I don’t agree with evolutionary theories in regards to the way that males and females act in relationships or with sex. I believe the media and society has a far greater influence in regards to how women and men view sex and relationships.

Yes, women giving birth is a fact. However, there is no evidence to show that there are certain attributes that are more suitable for reproduction, including youth.

If we were in control of what is shown then why are they the billion dollar industry, while we sit here and debate ‘the perfect figure’. There is also the other side of the story, that the media shapes our ideals (which are unrealistic), in order to create cognitive dissonance and… Read more »

True, but there doesn’t have to be one set of exact measurements and body fat level to be considered
‘curvy’. For instance, anywhere from Candice Swanpoel to Kim Kardashian could be considered ‘curvy’, yet be different sizes with varying body fat levels. I think once those curves become more like jagged angles or jelly rolls, then it’s no longer curvy.

The number of women who actually look like the girl on the right is so few, that I’d imagine if a man were to go out deliberately and exclusively seeking her body type they’d be rather unlikely to find someone who is sexually, emotionally, intellectually compatible with themselves. All of these factors are part of what makes a woman ‘ideal’ for the man she’s with, that it seems archaic and ridiculous that we’re still putting these ‘ideal’ body types out there for women to see and feel ashamed by.

This study leaves me with many questions. 1. Which face of Megan Fox? Pre surgery, transformers post surgery or what she has now because that face has changed quite a bit 2. So are these people in a room going over 50 or so pictures of stomachs and they are supposed to pick a stomach? Are they ever shown the complete composite picture?

Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying let’s stoop to conquer but really there is such a hidden male issue with size, yet men so easily thrust their biases of women’s breast size all over the place… I had a discussion with some Men recently where, in a nutshell (heehee pun not intended but I’m keeping it), men thought it completely insane and unfair that a woman’s interest in being intimate with a man relates to size of his member yet thought it reasonable for men to base such interest on the female boobage. What was most interesting was their… Read more »

i don’t take such things seriously, but i do think such polls are fun and while many look at the bad side of things, like this putting pressure or smth on people, i also see the bright side, many women look at this and realize another old thing, that many of us forget so often – people are different and will always have different likes&dislikes, and such things only prove this “expectations” don’t matter, cos when you get your nose out of the media and look out into the real world you’ll see tons of happy couples with women looking… Read more »

I really dislike both the female preference of the male or felame body. I do like the male preference of the female body but it’s so unrealistic that kind of a body even exists naturaly. And ofc I dont like the male preference of the male body either, too unrealistic again. I think this poll is either a fake or they interviewed only 12-18 year olds.

Yeah… The full breasts, flat stomach and full hips are harder to attain than straight up and down

with the whole “men like curvy bodies” thing, its like some attempt to convince females they dont need to be unnaturally skinny (for them of course) to impress a male. but the “curvy body” ideals men seem to have according to these studies are so damn unnatainable and you’ll find much, much more naturally tiny girls out there than girls with a body like the males want.

Im wondering abt ass…because I often find men and women on the same page abt an attractive woman’s toosh (men appear to like it a bit bigger than women). I also think whether a man prefs a lean or a curvy bod a great booty makes the bod desirable regardless…

I have this friend who has very, very flat breasts, she’s pretty slender, has long legs and ‘normal’ hips, and she has a lot of guys around her because she is beautiful (she’s got a gorgeous face first of all). So please, don’t waste your time making these stupid ‘studies’, men like pretty women, and it’s not the big breasts that make a woman pretty.

or beauty is subjective. some prefer slender while some prefer curves

Reb

Yes of course, but I gave the example about my not curvy friend because it seems like they want to convince people that all men always prefer curvier women, and that they don’t consider thin women with small curves attractive. This is SO wrong and inaccurate, in real life I know a lot of not curvy girls who are considered very attractive by men.

not sure i sometimes get lucky doesn’t mean women have stopped liking taller men

normal hips? so I assume you think wide hips are not normal on woman? When a woman has wide hips it means she has a lot of estrogen, so if anything it IS normal when a woman has wide hips. Geeze some of you people are brainwashed to how a woman should look

Megan Fox before the surgery was an ideal type. Though now she is not. I guess that’s too bad for her.

It’s definitely the mainstream view of beauty, because not everybody is a slave to the “model” image. I, for one, consider average height curvy girls – like Kelly Brook, Hilary Duff or Kim Kardashian (only without that huge ass) – to be the most perfect.

I personally know men who like curvy girls best and those who prefer tall lanky girls with small breasts to any other type. Tastes are different, and it all depends on a person (and howmuch this person is brainwashed).

I’d prefer to be the curvy one. I am curvy but wish I was more toned and b❆❆bs were an e instead of a d cup.

A supple slim is nice enough, but toned is ugly for women. The slightest bit of muscle on women immediately hardens them, so, you can imagine what a lot would do.

The ‘study’ is half right. Every woman in the world aspires to look like the one on the left, tall, with long legs, a medium sized bust and hips that are just right, not too small, not too big, very lean and fit physique. These are attributes that have always been considered ideal. And every woman wants a beautiful face and natural hair. No woman I know wants a artificial looking face and fake hair. That’s the half that’s true. The half that’s false, is that of this study that is false, is that men would prefer either one of… Read more »

Actually she’s right, every woman does want to look like a super model, whether she admits it or not. And why not? They’re perfect.

This is beyond stupid. I think a lot of women would love to have the curves portrayed in the picture instead of no hips Nancy on the left, the PROBLEM with reality is if you have a bigger bust/hips, chances are you have a higher body fat percentage. And because we’re not cartoon characters, it doesn’t all go right to T&A. Very few women, if any, without enhancement, can have those things and a flat, toned, tight body. And no, though most men of course love jiggle in the areas outlined, most, while building their perfect woman, wouldn’t lust after… Read more »

i actually think guys never even notice a woman’s stomach if she has b❆❆bs and butt, unless it is quite big. a little softness they couldn’t care less about – i’ve actually been complimented on my stomach by every single guy i’ve been with – it is not a washboard, nor is it fat, i am a slim healthy weight and i do have ab muscles but guys love the small layer of fat covering them because its soft!

Rest assured guys do not look for the perfect ‘ideal’ unless they have an obsession or something. So its never going to matter in respect.
