Why Men Find Women With Hourglass Curves More Attractive, According to Scientists

8 months ago

Science has just unveiled one of life’s juiciest secrets: men can’t resist curvy women! From ancient instincts to modern desires, the allure of curvier women has stood the test of time. It’s a celebration of fertility, health, and sensuality, leaving men in awe of the timeless elegance and undeniable allure of curvier women. So, ladies, shake what your mama gave you and embrace those curves.

They look more fertile

Studies have shown that men may subconsciously prefer to settle down with a woman with a curvier figure and wider hips because of evolution. Evolution has connected a curvier body shape with wider hips and a smaller waist with fertility and the ability to bear children. Men may prefer a larger woman over a pretty face and breasts because of this.

Men can find women with a curvaceous hourglass figure both attractive and more intelligent. Women, such as Salma Hayek, who have a larger difference between their hips and waist measurements are actually storing healthy omega-3 fatty acids around their hips and thighs. These healthy fats are an essential ingredient for brain development and linked with larger brain capacity and health.

A curvier hourglass figure has several important health advantages because of their narrow waists and wide hips. Women with narrower waists have a lower chance of suffering from metabolic diseases, and the larger hips indicate fertility and brain health.

Research suggests that men find women with a fuller figure to be more attractive. For instance, one psychology study found that men prefer women with a curvy backside, and they suggest it’s due to evolutionary preferences. In another study, men also preferred women with larger hip to waist ratio, meaning that they find thinner waists and larger hips most attractive.

They are more fashionable


The hourglass figure is popular in the fashion industry (think of the Kardashians or Rihanna) as well as being a classically attractive body shape, remembered today with Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Sophia Loren. Aside from the scientific studies, women with curvier figures can also be appreciated for their style and the fit of their clothes.

Other studies about men’s preferences for women reveal the professions that make men the happiest in their marriage. In fact, there is one profession in particular that leads to a greatly satisfied husband and marriage.
