Gentlemen prefer curves

I've reached this conclusion after many years of thinking the exact opposite. I've actually noticed that this fascination is shared by men and women to the same extent. My eye gets much more interested by the voluptuous curves of a woman's body. There is a certain poetry about those generous proportions, that I find irresistible. 
And from what I understand we experience these years almost a fashion statement when it comes to big butts.
We all know lots of celebrities who plump up their butts with implants. As a normal woman, who has been dieting all her life, I truly hope I shall reach the day when it will be mighty fashionable to be..normal.

Wow, I don't know where you find your photos, but they are eye-catching. :)

And I agree! I think many men do prefer curves. Woman have such body issues, though. Curves or not, it's probably more about body confidence that is attractive. :)

not many men but almost all men prefer curves :) Usually everything you ladies think you do for men (getting skinny, putting too much make up, obsessing with fashion) is what puts men off :) Do the opposite :)

Curves were sexy for thousands of years. It wasn't until the 60's when the model Twiggy got popular that the "ideal" woman was a size 2. My husband tends to want to ravage me more when I put on my "holiday weight," as I call it ;) He likes me more curvaceous.

Try as I may (and I do!), I just can't put on any weight. But whatever it is, I'm just happy to be healthy, whatever my size. :)

But there is a contradiction: people want to enhance their breasts and butts. Then using silicon. However, fashion is be very thin. Almost anorexic. Thus we see the models around the world.

Boobs and butt! That's what I have and will always have no matter how skinny or big I become. I agree with you, there's something about curves that draws our eyes close. When I look at skinny models, I look at the clothes, I do not see them. But when I look at someone, for example, like a Salma Hayek - I see her womanliness - the waist the hip ratio, lol. One day, my dear, normal will be the norm:) xoxo Hugs!

I think you're right. Women were intended to have curves. I'm fairly angular, so not the curviest, but as a teen I looked up to women like Drew Barrymore and Alicia Silverstone who (at that time) weren't stick figures, but embraced their curves. Of course, they're much skinnier these days. Sad sigh. And I do believe women's eyes are drawn to curves, as well. Men tend to be somewhat "blockier" in shape, no matter how well shaped they are. There's something to be said for softness.

Isn't it sad that we have been sucked into the delusion that the size zero figure is either desirable or attainable for the vast majority of women. Hooray for curves. Hooray for the Rubenesque...

Big D said...

I've never understood the "Size Zero" thing. There isn't a bloke I know who thinks skinny women who daren't eat are sexy.
That's a nasty trick women pulled on each other and somebody needs to tell y'all to knock it off.
Give me a girl with an hourglass figure who doesn't fear a bacon sandwich and I shall be happy.

Petronela, I wish we could all love our own bodies... mine is curvy but a large curvy, I am always critiquing it when I should be more grateful.

We are all normal, I don't think there is one type of beauty:)

Alida said...

I am sure you are right Petronela! Skinny and boney bodies look awful!

Lost in Space said...

I'm a lot happier when I have curves. I've been skinny once a few years ago and I hated my body at that time.

Linda R said...

I have to agree. I do believe that men perfect a shapely woman. At least thats what my man says..

Hugs~

I do find it strange that it has changed so much since I was younger, big butts were a bad thing, then Jennifer Lopez came around and then Kim Kardasian, and now they are a good thing! I always have and do still think a curves are sexy!
Hugs to you,
Janet :)

My husband certainly likes my curves. Always has.

Dixie said...

Wow, this is news to me!! I'm a lucky lard-ass!!

Kelly said...

I prefer women that remotely stable, have a good sense of humor and not afraid of words that might seem offensive to the overly sensitive. If she has red hair or she's a brunette with a nice rack, that's a plus, too. :)

In truth, it's what's inside that counts.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I have to agree with you. I live in a house of men- 4 sons and the hubs. They are all attracted to women with curves. Years ago, my husband said that the super skinny look is pushed by women's magazines...because women are bitches who pick on each other. Check out a Playboy...made for men...no super skinny chicks there.
