And will be considered unattractive by most. Overweight/obese is just the dealbreaking / breaking point for the majority of men when it comes to women. As I have said above, the majority of buttaface women I know are happy with themselves and their love lives. The overweight/obese women I know with prett faces ALL have difficulty attracting guys and getting dates, plus a lot of them WISH they could do something about their bodies and many of them ARE doing something to improve themselves, their lives, their health, etc. Instead of just standing pat.
I've known plenty of very thin, very fit women who had trouble getting dates and I know plenty of overweight and obese women who had no trouble. The difference between the two sets had more to do with confidence then body size.

This may be true to you, but for most of the WORLD, there is a standard of beauty when it comes to women and being overweight/obese does NOT fit that standard.
And I think I proved with my link to countries that find obese women as the most attractive women that the standard of beauty varies widely around the world. There is no one size fits all when it comes to standards of beauty. Pun intended.

I challenge you to come with a couple of names of overweight/obese women that MEN generally would find attractive. Adele? No way. Christina Hendricks? Maybe. Kim Kardashian? Well, she's no where near being overweight/obese but accoding to most women who post about her here on CD, she is "Fat", but she and her NATURAL (i.e., non siliconed) body is universally recognized as being a sex symbol.
Men's views on beauty vary widely. Some men find Adele very attractive. Some don't. Some find Kate Moss attractive. Some don't.

You want a list? Here's one to start:

I totally reject your list because:

1. You had to go all the way back to 2008 on your google search to find a list.
2. Your list was created by some woman named Tiffany H. Not a man, and probably fat herself.
3. Never heard of any of those women on your list except for a couple.
4. None of those women are universally considered to be attractive by MEN.

While I have run into Queen Latifah in several occasions, I can say that she IS beautiful. Flawless skin, and she just radiates beauty. But still, I wouldnt "tap" that.

Whitney Thompson who is #2 on that list is not bad. But you must admit, she got HOTTER after dropping some of her poundage:

My wife will never drop to the weight of a Karen Carpenter look-a-like.

It's not any of your business but she does her walking 2 miles a day along with some light weight work.

What she wont do is shove diet suppositories up her @ss, vomit, exercise to the point of obsession nor will she be manipulated by a highly transparent money making scheme called social coercion in an attempt to live up to an impossible ideal set in motion by charlatans and hucksters.

Your lack of command of civility and decorum is only surpassed by your inability to understand the world as it pertains to everyday reality.

Prior to any further posting I ask you to educate yourself on proper etiquette and the rules pertaining to kindness.

Actually, I just did a quick google search with "hot female overweight celebrities" and this was the first thing that popped up. Ten seconds seemed like the right amount of time for me to waste finding a list.

Who cares if it was created by a woman and not a man and who cares if she was fat? Many men would find many of the women on the list very very attractive.

That's ok, they are still famous and that's what you asked for.

That's because beauty is subjective and it would be very difficult to find any woman who all men find universally attractive.

Well, I doubt she'd interested in you "tapping that".

Trust me, it's better to just ignore those posters. They have a very warped and narrow view of beauty and treat women like they're only on this earth to look pretty.

I agree. Seems that men are increasingly attracted to more boyish 'figures' rather than what was represented by women like Anna Nichole or the Kardashians. I get all the hype about being fit and gym fanaticism. But I still wonder if some really would prefer a young boy?

Y'all know she weighs the same in both those pics, right? They were taken, at most, a week apart.

This is utter ignorance, I would take the body of a gymnast, track athlete, runner, natural slim/athletic over some hog that has cellulite in her late teens or 20s. If looking good was as easy as doing nothing, eating garbage and then putting tight clothes on you so you look like a sausage then everyone would be a supermodel.

Size 18/20 isn't hot, it never has been and never will be. Cellulite isn't hot, hasn't been and never will be. Don't slam people who workout from afar because you are too lazy to workout and/or eat right.

a beautiful body is one that is not fat or curvy, of course there are some exception but for any man especially to say they prefer overweight women to an athletic build is lying or weird.
I'm a male former rugby player and I think you're full of crap. I'd rather take a well-proportioned 18/20 over some ripped women. If I wanted to feel a bunch of muscle and bone when I was in bed, I'd hook up with Adrian Peterson.
