Tall and skinny is model ideal. Todays ideal body is Victoria Secret Angels type, yes. But, too tall (5 ft 10 in+) and slim (110 lbs) woman. isn't it literally "anorexic" which is more unhealthy than being obese? I am 5 ft 4 in and 115 lbs, personally I think short and curvy (even chubby) woman are more attractive and more feminine. Tall and lanky woman are far from my ideal, just opposite sex version of slender man. Why guys have strong preference to the "media ideals"?
Skinny because it looks hot, though she also needs to have other assets, just being skinny doesn't mean she's gonna be hot. Tall isn't as desirable as you think, most guys prefer average or short girls, since most guys don't like girls taller than them.
Obese is worse than anorexic, but just because you're slightly below the recommended BMI doesn't mean you're anorexic. In order to be anorexic you gotta be waaay lower. VS models aren't that low, they tend to be around the minimum limit.
Curvy (NOT fat) is my preference though, but I will take a skinny girl over a chubby one any day.
Most guys I know, and friends with like thick, medium sized girls, with big asses. Guys nowadays don't really like that too skinny girls look. Every time when I'm with my guy friends or my boyfriend and we're watching a movie with a really skinny girl, they'll say that she needs to get some meat on her bones. Or it's unhealthy, and unattractive to be that skinny. I always get upset because I'm really skinny, and it's hard for me to gain weight. So yeah I know that guys are not really into that skinny girls, like the girls you see in VS is not real it's all airbrushed, most girls who are really skinny don't look that healthy and look rather unhealthy and too bony. Plus don't compare yourself to Victoria secret models it's all airbrush, plastic surgery, unhealthy required diets, makeup, Photoshop, fake tans, and they have the best lighting, and camera crew.
I don't like skinny but slim. Yeah I do like tall and slim. Doesn't mean I only like tall girls, but have to be slim. Guys don't find thin attractive but slim.
You're wrong about tall being unattractive, otherwise models wouldn't be 5-8"+. You are looking it from female perspective. As girls like tall guys more masculine they automatically assume reverse must be true as well. Guys wouldn't find tall girls attarctive. Majority of guys would have no problem with height if girls wouldn't make it an issue.
There's just something about a tall slim woman that men find appealing- fragility is a feminine trait. Don't like that? Well tough shit. Fat hasn't been considered sexy since the age of medicine and it won't be again in your life time or mine.
In real life, most guys don't like tall girls that much. Guys like girls to be shorter than them. You shouldn't think that models are the ideal women, they aren't. They're meant to best show off the clothes they're wearing.
Hey people like what they like. I am still trying to figure out why straight girls go for the feminine guys who look like they're still 15 instead of the manly bearded big ones with so much testosterone all their hair fell off.
But hey, whatever floats people's boat. I'm closer to the first than the latter anyway so I am not complaining.
It is also the simple truth that we want whatever is attractive to our relative success. Some hundred years ago a more busty woman would have been the prize and a skinny one a poor catch. Higher risks at childbirth etc. Similarly a thousand years ago any big guy was probably very appealing just because of his size.
I think it has to do with proportions and how the weight is distributed. Tall girls tend to have long legs and a small waist, which gives them better proportions compared to shorter girls. A tall girl will always look skinnier. I'm not saying that short girls don't/can't have those proportions but it's not as common. Plus, not all guys like tall girls. Unless they're like super tall themselves. I know most guys prefer a girl who's shorter than they are
women need to stop knocking each other down. im 5'9 and 113lb and i was born with a tiny figure. my family is all the same. you are as beautiful as you think you are, you dont need to tear down skinny tall girls to be more attractive... just embrace who you are. skinny tall girls aren't out there bashing you, just live your life, love yourself and stop comparing. genetics are genetics
if you don t like them doesn't mean others shouldn't. and you re skinny too based on your info nor chubby or smthng. I like the slender figure, it looks elegant, fragile and yes feminine to me. but I also like curvy. not everyone is built the same way and not everyone has the same preferences and that s a good thing.
As you pointed out, these are media ideals. Men are taught from a young age to like these things. It doesn't mean that they actually do. They just believe they're supposed to like them. A guy recently ask here on GAG how to change his preference so that he likes skinny girls. His family told him to grow up and get over "big girls." A lot of what men like is what they are pressured to like.
