As a girl who has spent the majority of my life looking five years younger than I actually am with the metabolism of a teenage boy, the only curve I've ever seen on my body is the occasional padded bra I've picked up for a night out. This isn't to say I dislike my figure (as women, we learn to love our bodies!), but I’ve noticed most men tend to prefer women with curves.
It's not only in the dating world that men are falling for curvier women, but tabloids and magazines are making a shift too! Last year Sports Illustrated included plus-size model (size 12), Robyn Lawley, in their swimsuit edition, and this year plus-size model (size 16), Ashley Graham is one of the featured models as well. As refreshing as it is seeing a change in model figures, what is it about these curvy women that people can't get enough of?
Obviously this isn’t a new theory, as guys always fell for the girls with boobs when we were teens, but I started to do a little research of my own to figure out why it is that men love curves. Here’s what I learned:
1.) They Have Bigger Boobs
Once again, it comes back to cup size. I’m not sure what it is with guys and boobs, but there’s a magical connection there I will never be able to understand. When a girl loses weight, her boobs are generally the first thing to go - so a girl with a little more meat on her bones typically has larger tatas.
2.) They Have A Bigger Butt
Just like boobs, curvy women tend to have a bigger tush. I guess it's true, men love "big butts, and they cannot lie"
3.) They Eat
Why would you want to sit with a girl at dinner who pushes salad around her plate the whole meal without taking a bite? A curvy girl is way more likely to indulge in a pizza and beer night with her man.
4.) Fewer Bruises
… A little more cushion for the pushin’
5.) They Appear More Feminine
A hollow, skinny face can sometimes appear gaunt-like or masculine. A rounder, softer face is often seen as more feminine to men.
6.) They Look Younger
Since fat can smooth out wrinkles on your skin, a woman with a little more weight on her figure will look younger!
7.) They Are Softer
Curvy girls have softer bodies, so of course they are better cuddle buddies.
8.) They Appear More Confident And Fun
A woman who isn’t constantly stepping on the scale, stressing about her diet, or what size she is wearing is typically more confident and easy-going.
9.) It’s Classic
Kate Moss and Twiggy were just a phase. Marilyn Monroe has always been the epitome of sexy.
10.) It’s A Sign of Fertility
Whether they realize it or not, men are subconsciously attracted to women with larger breasts and child-bearing hips for starting that next chapter of life.
