What’s considered as the “perfect body” for women has been changing for years now. First, being curvy was the socially accepted body, then it was “the skinnier the better” look. Today, you could say it’s a mix of both.
Regardless, many women feel the pressure of having that body that makes everyone, especially men, in love with them. It’s hard to be confident in your own skin when you have society judging you left-right-center. But what do men consider as the perfect female body?
A study was done that asked men from across the world to reveal what they believed to be the perfect female body shape. Their responses revealed something that many of us already suspected, and it’s not the most positive outcome.
Professor John Speakman led the study asking men from 10 countries to rank a series of body shapes from most to least attractive.
What the study revealed is that majority of the men actually preferred the more “youthful” body shapes, the most popular female body shape was a BMI of 19.
A BMI of 19 is actually on the borderline of being underweight. There was a correlation between a higher BMI and seeing the woman as less attractive.
Speakman noted, “Fitness in evolutionary terms comprises two things: survival and the ability to reproduce.”
