As per biological indicators men prefer curvy women over skinny ones only because they are more fertile. Healthy women can reproduce healthy kids and hence, men are always on hunt for women who can run their family well, producing healthy children.
In most of the general cases, men prefer women who have normal BMI that is Body Mass Index. The BMI is calculated to know if a person is overweight, underweight, obese or normal. It is a measurement of body fat as per height and weight of a person. Women with normal BMI is preferred the most by men. The women with BMI 25 is considered overweight and are not liked by men on the other hand, BMI 18 is considered underweight. Women close to BMI 19 are considered most fertile.
An important factor that measures the level of woman’s attractive is waist-to-hip ratio. Waist-to-hip ratio is calculated by dividing the circumference of woman’s waist by circumference of her hip. However, the preferred ratio is different in different countries. Like in Western countries, women with waist-to-hip ratio of 0.7 are considered most attractive. In Asian countries the ratio is 0.6 while in Latin American and African countries the ratio of 0.8 is found most appealing. This shows that hourglass figure is most liked by men.
Men cannot deny their liking for good breasts and bums in women. As per a study, it was revealed women with breasts and bums have higher-levels of mid-cycle estradiol and progesterone. The higher these hormones, the easier it is for a woman to conceive. Hence, the men always have fascination for large breasts and bums which is generally not found in skinny women.
Overall, we can say that it’s not fat or skinny but rather men like healthy women. The women who take care of herself well and maintain herself are always liked by men. Women with control over their weight that certainly not mean getting skinny are attractive for men.
Lastly, girls should try to be healthy and should have healthy eating habits which will not let them gain extra fat. However, it’s more of your good nature and love that matter for guys. If a guy is in love with you it doesn’t matter for him whether you are fat or skinny.
