  • It's been proven scientifically already. Anyone who thinks this isn't true should take some psychology classes or go talk to a psychology professor. There was a study where men and women were given a chart and told to put which body type was their ideal for themselves, what they thought they were, and what they think the opposite gender likes.

    Well, fun fact here: Women (on average) put that they thought they were larger than they really were, thought that men liked an ideal body size less than what men really wanted (based on the men's results), and wanted their ideal body size to be EVEN SMALLER than what they thought men's ideals was.

    Now men, they were sorta closer to their own body type, figured the ideal body type women wanted was more muscular/larger in that way, and wanted their ideal body type for themselves to be around what they thought the woman's ideal was.

    I think I'm forgetting some aspects. I'll have to ask a psych professor I know what the study was so I can cite it, but I do know this was a study done over and over again and results were mostly the same. It showed a few things like our society has a ridiculous idea on body types for both men and women and that women have even more ridiculous ideas of what their body type should be. It was... interesting.

    • For your information, I have taken plenty of psychology classes. I wan't claiming this to be totally false. I believe the premise of this is true, that men tend to want fuller body types (for evolution and breeding purposes) than women do. However, I was saying that the ideal "size" is something I disagree with because it still comes down to preference. Some have an evolutionary base and follow the pattern above, others don't.

    • Perhaps, but ideal doesn't necessarily mean absolutely ideal for all, but in average. It would have been better if that site was more clear on whether it was speaking in absolutism or on averages.

  • Not really. Every guy has his own preference in women, and not only that certain women look better at different sizes depending on how their weight is distributed throughout their body. For example this picture is of size 8, 12, and 14 women link and in that case I would definitely say the middle girl (size 12) is the most attractive. But I would not always pick a size 12 over an 8 or whatever. It really depends on the girl's over all look.

  • I disagree.

    I don't think it is quite so cut and dry. I think men like all different types of women. Some, their ideal is much thinner than all three girls. For some it could be the same size of the national average or bigger.

    Same for women, women of all shapes and sizes prefer their body various ways. I'm about a size 8 dress size, probably a 6, and would prefer to be a bit smaller actually. Some women prefer to be a bit bigger.

    I know why women gravitate towards this type of thing, because it gives you a final answer and something to work towards, etc. It sounds much better than just "different strokes for different folks" It makes you quesion how YOU prefer yourself once you realize there is no one ideal.

    • Thanks for best answer :)

    • Many psychology studies have actually shown this to be very true in terms of what men ideally like vs what women want their body to be and ya... so... disagree as much as you want. Scientifically speaking? On average women want a smaller body type than what men ideally want and in the end both are still smaller than the average of the country and it's really not that important to begin with. Oh well.

  • Disagree, everyone is different and no matter what, we are always going to have different opinions and preferences.

    • Yup.

  • every guy likes different types. for me personally, I have a pretty big range in what I consider a beautiful body. all those bodies look very fine to me.

    • plus that pic is weird. the size "12" looks bigger and less in shape than the size 16

  • Although I like the size 8, I think guys ideal is more curvy with bigger boobs say size 10 38D.

    • seriously? most guys I know don't I'm going to be honest that sounds kinda large to me. I'm not saying it can't be sexy- if guys like that that's cool and if women are that size and still healthy that's awesome because almost every healthy body type can be attractive. but personally I see ideal as more like mila kunis, 38D is huge and size 10 isn't tiny either

  • Basically if I like the girl, and think her face is pretty, then I don't mind too much about the body..

  • disagree

    everyone has diff prefrence I personally like the size 8 and size 16. size 12 looks kinda wierd

    • syet I'm 12 whahah! im a nerd and a weird lol!

    • i didn't mean you I meant her in the picture

    • ohh :))

  • MY personal preference is the "national average" in your picture. In fact, I wouldn't even mind a bit bigger.
