An e-mail from a friend I surveyed on this topic:
"yes they are all hot. I have never been a fan of rail thin women and like some meat on those bones. And I have dated women heavier than these too. But yes all of these women are HOT HOT HOT"

DH first says "they're all pretty"

Then he says, "hmmm...interesting"


Pretty noncommittal, doesn't want to get himself in trouble. LOL. Today is our 15th anniversary. He has learned well over the years!

To me a 5'6"-5'9" woman with about 125lbs +/- 10, would be perfect bedroom material. And I would be equally turned off by a 30 lb underweight as I would a 30 lb overweight. BUT, given the choice between the two extremes, I'd take the 30 lb overweight.

So my vote is the ladies in the linked pictures are upper limit as far a sexual attractiveness is concerned.

BUT ALSO, I be very much happier to wake up with any of those pulchritudinous, callipygian lasses and hear her ask, "how about we ride along PCH on our Gold Wings and find lunch and maybe a movie tonight after our yoga session and then I'll pin you to the bed and ......." [ insert your fantasy]. Versus, waking up with a 5'7" 120lb bimbo who said, "hand me my cigarettes will ya hun, I got a bad cough this morning, and turn on the television for me, Jerry Springer is on. Darn is this my last 3 boxes of chocolates, these will all be gone by the time Oprah comes on and I'll need some to get me thru my four favorite reality shows tonight, but don't worry we can have sex next week."


Just saying.

Sorry, folks, but using my own tall and well proportioned build as the datum ,
...the alleged Miss Size 16 is probably closer to a size 20.
...the alleged Miss Size 12 is much closer to a size 18 (my own size).

I used to sew all my clothes, so I know womens' sizes.

This thread is a real eye-opener, guys. Good stuff.

I have always found slim, athletically built women attractive. I guess that's from my long association with competitive swimming. The women in the OP's picture are nice looking, just not my preferred shape.

I LOL'd at his response, as that would be mine to DW's inquiry.

They all look fine to me. I mean fine as in acceptable and also FINE!

I was thinking about this same thing today while waiting on my Taco Bell order. They have an ad campaign for some of their healthy tacos (don't laugh!). A woman claims to have lost 50 pounds eating said healthy tacos. They showed a pic of her in a bathing suit on a boat as the "before" pic, and then her current slimmed up pic where she is 50 pounds lighter. She looked decent in the "before" pics and since all her clothes were on in the after pics, you couldn't really tell how nice her body looks.

I wonder where the ladies of classic beauty would fall on the size chart? I mean the naked roman sculptures and the paintings from the renaissance of women lying naked on couches?

I hope for his sake he can rattle off "No honey, of course not" and keep a straight face.

"Really? You mean I look fat even without the dress?"

Freebird, how tall are you? At 5'2 and a size 4/6, I was amazed at how large the sizes listed were in the article - especially the pic of the three women (off the rack sizing, not pattern sizes - I sew too - and pattern wise, I am a 8/10/12) I see clothes in the "women's" section, and those ladies pictured seem to be a bit small for them!

I am 5'7", 175 lbs, and built solid from years of playing sports. Not muscular, just well toned except for a few problem areas.
My size at weight 135 in high school was size 14/16. My size now is 18.
I am not overweight, just curvy.

For a petite woman, yes, the sizes would seem big.

For larger gals like me, the sizes in the pic were too low for WOMENS sizes, not misses. Once the size goes above 16, it's a whole new world.
Remember womens' sizes have a lot more to do with bust measurements, shoulder breadth and arm length than misses' sizes under 16.

Curvy girls can certainly be pretty and attractive.

But if I'm honest, I have to admit that many women become unattractive when they gain weight, like one of my ex girlfriends who became (very) obese. As far as I know she's been single for many years now. I feel very sorry for her because she can't stand being alone and is one of the nicest people I know.

I saw this image called "Junk Food America" today and it made me think about this thread and come back here:

Jeff Foxworthy has a great line. His wife asks "Do I look fat?" He pauses and replies "Do I look stupid?".

I just read that the AVERAGE woman's size was now a size 16. Yes, I said SIXTEEN.
Used to be a 14, so what happened to that I have no idea.

So, how would everyone feel about seeing more average sized women--which is now a size 16 in America--appearing in advertisements? Would these Rubenesque women get some reaction from you? They are the average woman after all.

When I read “I've fallen into one of her rolls” my mind started to think I was going find something different.

To me it’s more about what’s in the inside of someone not what they look like. But what they look like plays in the beginning of if people get to know each other.

I always dated girls that looked to with in 30 pounds of my own weight.

Why is it that guys want all their women to be trim even when they themselves aren't. Seems like the guys are the ones making the judgements here and probably because it's always the way the man wants his woman. Wonder what he thinks of himself. Take me for example: 73 years old, 6' 3", 228 lbs and not all in the right places. I've got the normal tummy and a 40" waist. No excess flab but what right do I have to demand that my "woman" be 5' 3" and 110lbs with a set of 36's like she was. She's now 71 and no way can be like that. We love each other like we are and just remember the good old days. Sizes are wierd. Take my grandson: he's 21 years old, 6' 5", 265 lbs not all in the right places and he loves big women. I mean chunky ones. I never understood that but he says that's just way he is. Can't stand skinny women. To each his own.
Carry on!

Appearing in ads? Sure. Appearing in ads wearing bikinis and other revealing clothes? Not so much.

Then again, I don't much care for all of the starved women that look like they are 14 because they have dieted or barfed up every last ounce of bodyfat.
