Let's talk about the female body type. As with anything related to women, different women are attractive to different men. I know that as the decades have gone by the image that has been pictured on TV, magazines as well as the media and Hollywood of what the ideal woman should look like as far as the physical appearance goes has changed. Some people think that men are conditioned by the media and Hollywood to like a certain type of woman and maybe that is the case with some men. I personally could careless what Hollywood the media or any magazine thinks the ideal woman is or should be since I am not a big fan of any of them. I like different types of women but I am not ready to describe what I consider ideal although I know what I like so I would like to hear from the gentlemen. What is your ideal woman body type? , and please this is just for informative and entertainment purposes so I don't mean to offend anyone. I know there is more that physical beauty to make a woman ideal to a man but for this particular thread I'm focusing on the physical part. Input from the ladies is always more that welcome.

For me, its "athletic". That doesn't mean model skinny, just a woman who stays in shape. So if we're talking sizes, I'm not looking for a size 0-2. I think a 4-6 is ideal.

Yes, I consider this to be ideal as well, and it's not hard to maintain if we constantly sacrifice and work out. Few of us have the natural metabolism as a grown female to keep this small size. I am fairly lucky at 43 to still be a 6, but I am always saying no to things I want. So it's trade off~

Tall and thin. Fat women are a complete turn off because it indicates sloth. An athletic, tall (5'8 or more) woman with good posture is best. And a tall woman will almost never be able to wear a size 4, that is for shorter, petite women. Steffi Graf in her playing days had the perfect womans body.

good replies so far. I am a little disappointed at the number of replies but oh well. I do have my preferences but I love women and like a wide range of body types.

Yeah, I'm not an expert on sizes and yes, I have typically dated shorter women (5'2"-5'6"). I just want a woman who is at a "good" weight for her height. For example, I'm 6'0" and 185lbs. I think thats a good height/weight proportion for a guy. I work out and nobody would ever say I was overweight or underweight. Plus, taller people can get away with having a little extra weight (excluding health issues), as it doesn't show as much.

I think being overweight or under weight is indication of current or future health issues & most of the males are naturally wired to sense this & reject a female based on their size. No offense to anyone. I dont really buy into this 'accept me as I am' publicity because we all need to strive for better health at any age. When you start living a healthy lifestyle it shows through your skin, hair, body shape. No doubt about it. Also, there are some cultural influences for sure, but mostly I think its the natural instinct.

I prefer petite women with a nice hint of an athlete's body. I don't like overly muscular women but I like someone in decent shape. I also like "girly girls" who take care of themselves.
