Study: Hourglass Figures Not Ideal

Friday, December 5, 2008

As if anyone needed confirmation from the media, major news outlets are reporting that the hourglass figure that so many women - from preteens to seniors - have tried to get is not necessarily desirable to men, nor is it necessarily beneficial health-wise.
Of course the study has set off a firestorm of debate, but that's to be expected.
The furor started with a scientific quip that went something like this: “Mounting evidence suggests there is no better cue than the relative contours of her waist and hips,” with a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.7 (that works out to measurements of 36-25-36) being the reproductive ideal, and “even a slight increase in waist size relative to hip size [likely to] signal reproductive problems.”
I think the hate mail is just now starting to subside.
By the way, there's also a new study that says French need the biggest condoms. Oui, Oui!

I'm in GA and MOST men here prefer hourglass shapes, with more attention on the bottom of the hourglass. As long as her booty and hips is bigger than her gut, it's a go...for them LOL

Lol I think this study was done and promoted by poor women that don't have an hour glass. Since when do men not like an hour glass figure? I've noticed some like rulers, but that's just grose. I myself happen to have severe curves at 10in of difference between waist, bust, hips so i'm not worried about it. ha ha
