I get that. That's why I stopped short when I was about to elaborate on the whr ratio.

Real women aren't even curvy... Most women well in America have the original shape of a banana but may look less like a banana as they gain weight. Pears are next but far behind.

Is the bolded above a typo? I realize its your estimate but gosh, I don't know ANYONE who has a 10" difference between their waist and hips. If I did, I would *most certainly* call them curvy.

She is not obese like Melissa McCarthy. But Hendricks is fat. But it seems the world is dominated by men and women who like or envy enormous breasts.

She is attractive in a general sense (redhead!), but me - I prefer a Zoe Saldana shape.

Yeah you don't know the dimension of the average female obviously. The average woman has a ten inch difference waist to hip ratio. Ideal though is 12 inch or more... 36-24-36 is most ideal hourglass shape supposedly...

A 10" difference between waist and hips is the ideal, and has always been quite common. As a poster above mentioned, it hasn't been unusual in the past for women to have a greater than 10" difference between waist and hip circumference. I bet a number of C-D women have that, as do many of the women who cross your path daily. Maybe you're just not paying attention....? Or you don't notice them if they don't have major boobs?

Really? Hmm I find it to be semi-common. I do at most weights, but I don't look very curvy unless I am wearing a proper fitting bra. I definitely look more curvy when I am hovering around an 11 inch gap. It is also trickier to look curvy if you have a short torso. I find people with longer torsos tend to look curvier. Use short-torsoed people don't have much space for a waist, so things like bra fit are way more important.

I think lots of men secretly (or not so secretly) like a bit more padding, as long as it lands in the right place.

I think it's likely that he just doesn't know much about the shape of the female body.

My ideal woman has an athletic physique (eg http://i.imgur.com/dRlSCn4.jpg ) . That said, the more photos I look at of Christina, the more I'm convinced that she's fat, period, and at times obese.

True hourglass shapes are among the most UNcommon, yet all of you happen to find these measurements very common. I find that quite interesting. And I am female, btw - not that it really matters.
