In my long life, I have found that very fit women with a dream figure have attitude "problems" while more "average" shaped women are real and down to earth. Even though it boosts my ego to be with a dream woman, average women are much better companions and not as selfish.

Im pretty sure this isn't a thread about judging women. Its more about what type of body men find more attractive/sexy.

OP, while am am not, nor will I ever be a attracted to an overweight woman's body, I can say that I don't think the 5' 10" chick you posted is "disgusting" as you said. I think for a big girl, she's actually proportioned pretty well.

Yeah, thats true, but I am just not attracted to big gals that much for some reason. On aging, I notice chubbier gals tend to wrinkle less. I wonder why that is . Maybe getting down to that fatally attractive skinny chic look is not too beneficial in the future.

Who, in your mind would have a more attractive body shape.

For me, its 1 all the way. Skinny and fit looks amazing on women.

Hefty, um...., not so much.
That's not sufficient information. What's needed is the proportion. Loads of data over a number of decades still prove true: Actual measurements vary over cultures and time, but adult men are most often attracted to women with body proportions of 1:0.78:1.

5'10" and 165 lb is a disgusting failed turnoff in my opinion :

How old are they? If the heavier woman is only 16, that could be a problem. If she's 40 with a couple of kids, it's pretty nice.

Actually, in either case, good health is mostly a matter of performance: strong heart, dense bones, strong muscles. A "skinny" person can be quite unhealthy.

Girl #1 has been photoshopped...look at the footboard to the left of her and you can see that it's warped. Her arm on the right side of the photo also has an odd curve, and you can tell they shaded her body to contour it...have you ever seen a woman whose belly was that much darker than the rest of her body?

She's also at least 10 years younger than the larger model and standing in a pose designed to maximize her bust and minimize her hips.

If you put girl #2 in a more flattering bathing suit and the same pose as the other model and gave her a photoshop tan and contouring, she would look a lot more appealing. The truth is that we're not used to looking at bodies that aren't photoshopped anymore.

The quote in the picture with girl #2 makes the inclusion of that photo in this thread especially ironic.


Anyhow...the reason women always post in threads that say men only? Because our brains don't shut off when we look at photos like that and we can spot things like an obvious photoshop job.

I tried looking for a non Photoshopped image, but could not successfully find one. Hence, I just posted these 2. I can take pictures of such women at my gym, but that would land me in prison for 10 years (for invasion of privacy). Are you willing to bail me out or take the blame .

The #1 image you showed, if it is of a real 5-7 woman, that woman is much less than 125 pounds and probably has breast augmentation (except we know it's been 'Shopped)

And I suspect the #2 image is of a woman less than 165 pounds.

The truth is, even relatively lightweight, very shapely women will have a more bulges than you see in a 'Shopped image.

Depending the pose, everyone has bulges that magazines don't let you see. They may not 'Shop fitness models, but if they're not 'Shopping they will be sure to pose them so that nothing bulges.
