I think we have all seen women who would be so much more attractive if they lost some weight. I have seen some women and have commented to myself that she has such a pretty face, if she was only thinner her body would then go with that face.

Same for men, but the question was about women.

I agree. Many including me are hotter at a decent weight range.

I don't think anyone looks better when they are overweight.

I'm guessing you mean physical beauty. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, always has been and always will be.

60 pounds is a lot. That could technically put some people in the obese category, right?
Adding ‘some’ or “little more weight” -- as in some celebrities who’d look good with more weight – we’re not talking 60 pounds more.

Take Delta Burke – SHE was beautiful heavy -- even at her heaviest.
When she did finally lose weight I don’t know how much she lost...she was still beautiful.

Actress Morgan Fairchild has gained weight as she’s aged. Nowhere near 60 pounds.
It’s just that – as with anyone – if you haven’t seen her in a while it’s a bit of a shock but other than that – she’s still gorgeous.

Yes sometimes, but it also depends on the body structure you see.

I think so. Now that I've finally admitted that I have issues and have gotten the help that I needed, I'm doing better.


Thankfully, I still have a waist, but the stretch marks on my love handles make me insecure. I hope they go away once I lose weight, but I doubt it.

Like others said - it all depends on where the weight goes. I'm actually trying to lose about 60 lbs myself. Over the last 10 years - I gained that much. However, most of my weight is in my belly area, I actually got questions if I was pregnant! Not so much at the weight I am now - but about 20 lbs ago.

Beauty is truly on the inside, but in terms of physical looks - some people I do look better with a few extra pounds. It all depends on their height/built. My friend and I are the same height - but she is a muscular built. If she weighed what I want to weigh - it would look horrible on her!

I agree that it depends on how much extra weight. Some of it can make women look more feminine, too much simply fat, which is seldom considered attractive, though.

Unfortunately gaining weight is natural as one gets older, happens to most people. From nature's perspective keeping a woman attractive is a lot of work - and not really worth the trouble anymore once women are 45+ years old as the goal of attraction is increasing the chances of reproduction, scientists say

Random lumps, bulges and rolls can make just about anything that was beautiful unattractive.
