The Secret of Admiring Stares on Curvy Women

The Secret of Admiring Stares on Curvy Women

Slim women seem to be everywhere in the media. From models adorning glossy covers to pop-stars to the lead characters in films, this appears to be the default size-setting. In fact, it’s often stretching the imagination to describe many of the waif-like figures as slim at all; they are thin. From their gaunt expressions to their angular elbows and shoulders, they have reached a point where it’s only natural to get the impression they’ve spent so long obsessing about calories they’ve forgotten how to enjoy life.

There may be any number of euphemisms to describe females who embrace their fuller physiques: voluptuous, curvaceous, buxom, and a lot more. Let’s settle on curvy. It’s short, to-the-point and highly descriptive. Here are some of the reasons why it’s curvy women who deserve to be catching everyone’s attention, rather than the images of unhealthy-looking individuals we are far more used to having thrust in our face.

It’s in our genes

Men have certainly got used to slender women being ‘the norm’ after so much exposure to this version of femininity, but when it comes to enjoying the female form guys actually prefer the complete opposite. Genetics have programmed males to be attracted to curvy women. Surveys have confirmed men are drawn to females whose waist is 60% of the size of their hips. It’s that classic hourglass figure that will provoke an instant response and send pulses racing, rather than a woman whose shape seems not that dissimilar to a teenage boy.

It’s all down to millennia of evolution and the survival of the species. Just as females are subconsciously more interested in guys they perceive as fit, healthy and virile, males like women with larger hips who they will regard as having better potential for bearing children. Obviously, these sentiments have become far more complicated over the centuries since men graduated from wearing animal skins and carrying around clubs, but perhaps a sense of appraising potential mates on the basis of how healthy they appear to linger in our DNA.


The attributes men will drool over can be summarized in two areas of anatomy: boobs and backside. There is absolutely nothing in creation capable of hypnotizing males into dumb silence than the sight of a magnificent, ripe cleavage; a large gravity-defying chest, unsullied by silicone, rippling as a curvy woman strolls into a bar or any other venue. The rear view will similarly set pulses racing.

These attributes define sexiness more than any other aspect of the female form. If a woman possesses an abundance in either or both areas, then she will undoubtedly have grown used to being appraised on a regular basis, from immature whistles to subtly appreciative glances. Where the latter is concerned, the urge to examine the stunning subject might well have to be done surreptitiously if the person happens to be with their decidedly thinner partner at the time.

It’s one thing for a voluptuous woman to own a killer hourglass figure, but in many instances, she will decide to set temperatures rising even higher by highlighting the fact. A plunging cleavage will be accentuated with a low-cut top. Perhaps a discreet tattoo on one breast will ensure male eyes are captured even more readily.


Wherever you happen to comes across these curvy women - in clubs, in social groups, you’ll notice they often have larger-than-life personalities that compliment their fuller bodies. So these buxom ladies will have wonderful, charming, humorous passionate characters to go with their fabulous hourglass figures. Talk about a win-win scenario for their admirers!

      Why did you only find white women to show "curvy"?

    I think we spend too long talking about skinny vs curvy vs fat vs everything and dedicating our lives to weight numbers. It's beyond stupid. Some people have bones structures they cannot fight. Going to the gym to move and eat as good as we can is indispensable but for HEALTH.

    No matter if you take protein or exercise all your free time. You can try to look better and achieve it but structures are out of control due genetic. Is posible you'll never be in your perfect weight or gain some curves.

    Just do your best and accept it! Stop wasting your life talking about it. People is so obssesed with weight these days.

    What you say about men preferring curvy women is true, however you're talking about overweight women, which men don't tend to prefer. There's a difference between curvy and overweight - overweight women just like to call themselves curvy because it makes a negative sound like a positive - but it's still a negative.

    When we say skinny vs curvy, this is what we mean:

    The skinny girl has no shape vs. a girl of healthy weight with an hourglass figure. Not a fat girl. Definitely not an "SSBBW".

    So... curvy means fat. You are playing a part in the ongoing cultural absurdity that says they're different.

    ... They're not different. That woman pictured above is fat. And fat isn't attractive. Sorry.

    Sounds like an excuse for eating too much. The girl in the pic is obese plain and simple. You talk about millenia of evolution, but that lady wouldn't be outrunning any predators now would she?
    there's a middle ground between fat and anorexic, that's why fitness is defined by what you can do, not the size of your boobs or butt.
    • You're 15, what do you know about obese... god damn girl... hahahaha

      I dislike it when they use black women too, because black women are the only race that looks good in different sizes.

    Some comments on this.

    1. Just because a woman isn't thin does not mean she is curvy. Some are not curvy but fat. The woman in the picture, for example, looks more fat than curvy to me.

    2. You lost me after reading this paragraph. Attraction is an animal instinct, not a debate. And it's a matter of personal preference, not popular consensus. I don't want to be told what kind of appearance I "should be" attracted to. That's arrogant and presumptuous. I know what I like in a woman's appearance and no verbal argument is going to convince me to make believe otherwise... especially just for the purpose of being politically correct.

    I like thin women.
  • Salmon4056
    Interesting. Im not thick but I but have an hourglass figure still. A hourglass that's slim
    • Salmon4056

      The woman in the first pic is curvy a little but also fat looking. I see women like Kenya Moore, Tolu Toolz, south black African Lisa Visagie, these nigerian women like Daniella Okeke, Evia Simon, and these Ghanaian celebs like Peace Hyde and especially Princess Shyngle as the definition of what's curvy.

    I'm model skinny... whoops...
    I just want to say, that all the curvier girls, always say thing to me like
    "omg you're so skinny" like as in it's a bad thing... and they'll call me anorexic even though I eat like a horse... and it's a little unfair. If I called a fat girl fat, so many people would get mad at me. But when everyone calls me skinny like it's a gross medical condition, everybody agrees. And I'm sorry that like everyone's gonna be mad at me, but like... sorrynotsorry
    • They're jealous. Plain and simple. All woman WISH they were thin, but most of them are not and deny it. It's basic psychology.
