I know some black and latino women especially embrace the more busty, womanly figure, but it seems the majority of white and asian women want to have skinny legs, skinny or slightly toned arms, and even narrow hips, with the only concession to curviness is perhaps boobs: but to have this figure and main a large bosom one needs enhancements, unless one is 'blessed' as they say. Of course a toned, slim and tucked tummy is still the ideal, and a slim waist. Narrow shoulders and a bony, weak looking upper body is also the order of the day.

I see not only models but women with this body type being held up as the ideal. Women who are talk and lanky, for instance, are often seen as sexy or beautiful. Decades ago they would've been considered unattractive. It seems the ideal shape in the 90s was more curvy/more womanly. A lot of the Miss Universe contestants look like skinny hairless birds in the swimsuit comp, although they are sexy, I think I prefer a bit more flesh on there, although if it's your natural body shape you can't help it.

I've just had to put up with what I was given.. and be grateful.. it's all still in working order.. one of my granddaughters has model proportions, and five inches taller than me... so she doesnt get it from her granny actuallly when I was a teenager in the 60s most girls were my height, 5 2 so it never bothered me much, but now the girls seem to be in general much taller.. so is it the fast food thats caused it....

The type you speak of is not a 12 yo girl with boobs . I think it more like a 12 yo boy with boobs .

I think you are ignoring the whole Kim Kardashian booty phenomenon. Jennifer Lopez started it. You mention a "womanly figure" including hips and backside ... in the 90s Pamela Anderson was a major sex symbol. She's all chest, no butt. Women can't do anything about the shape of their hips because that's our skeletal structure. Butts and thighs, though, are muscles to be shaped.

I don't think Asian women get particularly busty or have much in the way of bubble butts either. They seem to be very slender-framed for the most part. Also, you don't see a lot of muscular arms or strong, imposing posture among Asian women. I think it's considered unfeminine.

Interesting. I was thinking the opposite. Most men I know stare like dogs in public at really big boobs and really big booties on thick/curvy women but call them fat or out of proportion or just not attractive on message boards or when they are around other people particularly women who aren't as "blessed."

Guys who do like the boobs on a stick look are just one subset of guys out there, no more prevalent then boob men or butt men or men who like big women.
