We all know that there is no such thing as an “ideal beauty,” right? And that we women shouldn’t define ourselves or our self-worth according to what men find sexy, right? It is with this disclaimer in place, then, that I tell you the preferred body type for men, according to this survey (link NSFW) in Fabulous Magazine, is a U.S. size ten (again, NSFW).
While the women stated a preference for a body around size 8 (US size 6), men were more interested in a slightly curvier size 12 (US size 10). Granted, both “ideal” bodies come in smaller than the average UK woman (who’s apparently a size 16 (US size 14)) — but at least this provides a little (more) proof that fashion magazines don’t always know what’s up.
The survey is interesting in several other areas, too. For instance, 77% of men said they wanted their partners to be more body confident, but…
7. Would you leave your partner if?
2% man said if his partner went up one dress size
9% men said if his partner went up 2 dress sizes
25% men said if they went up 3 dress sizes
64% men said if they went up 3+ dress sizes
Gee, I wonder why your partners aren’t body confident, there, large percentage of MEN. Also, 28% of men wanted their girlfriends to drop a dress size. At least that’s less than the 58% who wanted them to stay the same, right? This reminds me of the time a Japanese camera crew asked my husband about my weight. Did he want me to lose weight? Did he have some kind of fat fetish? And my husband gave the exact right answer: what she weighs doesn’t matter to me. Thank you, honey.
And thanks to Mychii for the link!
