You guys should read some of the earlier posts. To recap, we had to define "curvy" and "thin" because a Mans definition of curvy is quite different than a womans.

To a man, curvy = sexy (i.e., Kim Kardashian, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Vida Guerra, Marilyn Monroe, Salma Hayak). These are the type of women men picture when asked to name a "curvy" woman.

Women use the term "curvy" instead of saying "FAT" or "overweight" (i.e., Rosie O'Donnell, Queen Latifah, Kirstie Alley, Cameron Manheimm) these are women men would say are "fat", and women would say are "curvy". Women are trying to be politically correct or less offensive when speaking of a fat/overweight woman or when they describe themselves thus they prefer to use "curvy" which is incorrect according to men.

Thin (according to men) would be Angelina Jolie, Katharine Heigle, Charleze Theron, The Girls Next Door (Hugh Hefner's girlfriends) these are all "thin" women.

To once again answer the OP question of what men prefer, with all other things being equal, based on just physical appearances, most men would ALWAYS go for "Curvy" over thin.

I think the old Hollywood stars were more beautiful and glamorous (young Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe). Not to insult anyone,but I can't understand why so many guys like the looks of Pamela Anderson. She just looks trashy too me.

I'm willing to bet that 98% of those insufferable losers would fire off in about 8 seconds if they came home and found her naked in their bed. Idiots.

Ain't that the truth....

Voluptous NO (this defines fat to me), sexy curvy YES! It's all about the weight being properly proportional through out the body that makes a woman look attractive. As far as the word "pretty" that u used, that is defined in a woman's face NOT BODY SHAPE ........ hellllllllllllllo

Depends on the time you are living in. In the middle ages most of the paintings of attractive women are voluptous. Now days the media makes people think thin is pretty. But boney women are very ugly. Overweight not very healty though. So like Budda says the middle road in life is the happiest. www.eyesdesire.com

How the F**K is Salma Heyek "curvy, but Angie Jolie NOT curvy?!

Thin, IMO, is like Twiggy, Ally McBeal, etc.... Curvy is Angie Jolie, Salma, Cathrine Zeta, etc...


I am a woman, but my opinion is that I think curves (like those listed above, along with Marylin and Bettie Page, etc... are sexier IMO than thin waif like women. To be fair though, I have seen one or two (dunno know their names) models that are thin that are sexy as well.

Hun, the waist measurements SHOULD be smaller than the hip measurements. (ie, the hips should be greater than the waist)

A "traditional" hourglass, should be 10" smaller in the waist than in the hips and bust. (ex, 36-26-36)
