Rather than spindly-legged, skinny blondes, men prefer size 14 brunettes, a poll in the U.K. said last year.
“Far from men finding blondes the most sexually attractive, the study found that more than 60 per cent said they preferred raven-haired beauties over their blonde counterparts.”
As for size, “the largest majority - 38.8 per cent of guys - looked for an ‘average’ dress size of 12 to 14 in their perfect woman, with only 10 per cent looking for a size 6 to 8.
“Women with a 'curvy' dress size of 14 to 18 came in as the second most popular size - proof indeed that while magazines fill their pages with skinny models, UK males actually prefer a more rounded build.”
So why are most models of high fashion and actresses of screen exposure on the skinny side? Do women think themselves more attractive when miniskirted legs look like flesh tone toothpicks?
Why are hipless, flat-chested women considered the measure of beauty?
Short answer: Fashion designers.
Longer answer: Homosexual male fashion designers who see hipless and flat-chested persons (boys or very young men) as objects for sex. But, someone might say, the designers make clothes for women. Yes, I would say, but the imagining for the designs just might begin with a sexual object in mind, and the designer then fits the design to his imagination.
I have no facts to buttress my opinion, but then, the question of why models are skinny is not an inquiry that can be measured.
