It’s funny how us gals are so into looking and feeling skinny. We stop at nothing to get down to a size 2 and are the first to say our curves are well, too curvy. But what’s even funnier is how men love a woman for the same curves we can’t stand. While we might think our butt is too big or are bodies are too soft, men think the opposite. And while we might not be able to understand why men prefer our bodies one way, and ladies prefer them another, we can try our best get a grasp. As much as us women do certain things mainly for ourselves instead of men, it is nice to know that the things we cannot really change are being complemented by men. So while you might think that all these curves will not land you a date, you'd be surprised at just how many benefits you hold. Many celebs these days are embracing these curves, and there's no reason why you shouldn't too. Here are a few interesting things that men find most attractive on curvier ladies.
13 Younger Looking
Women who have more cushion can tend to appear younger - and not just men can agree on that. It seems to ring true that super skinny women can appear older because they don’t have plump skin that helps hide wrinkles. The women with more flesh can hide their age better and don’t appear to have as many fine lines. Who wouldn't want that? There's nothing more satisfying than hitting a night on the town and being asked to show some I.D because you look too young. If having a rounder face with a little more skin does this to you, sign me up! Women have been trying forever to find ways to make them stay looking younger and fresh, and lucky for you, you get to save your money because you have that done for you naturally! So instead of standing in the mirror and pulling back that extra skin, embrace it girl because women pay lots of money to look as young as you!
12 More Womanly
A curvaceous babe is a sexy one to a man because she looks just like that: a babe. A woman. In a man’s eye, women are supposed to have curves because they should look more feminine than a man. They should have larger hips, bigger butts, and fuller upper bodies because if they don’t, they look more like a little kid than a sexy woman. And honestly, who wants a woman who is still shopping in the kids section? The same way a woman doesn't want to be with a man who still shops in the kids section because he is either too short or too skinny (cough cough Samantha Jones), the same goes for women. A woman who is able to show off her beautiful curves in a fitted elegant dress is more appealing to any man. It shows confidence, and you look put together. A woman in a form fitting dress showing off her curves is way more attractive to men.
11 Classic Look
Men have been into curvy women for a long time now, and it still says the same today because they enjoy that classic look. A curvy woman with a body that is noticeable and not too thin or frail is sexy and has been for decades now, making it a thing men continue to get heated over time and time again. Marilyn Monroe was one of the sexiest women of her time, and she wasn't a size 2. If you look at celebrities now, it is the curvier types like Kim Kardashian and Adele who are making headlines for their shape. Being model thin is a thing of the past, and no man wants to be with a woman like that. A curvy woman is classic and timeless, whereas stick thin is only a phase. When a man is with his woman, he want's people to be thinking how classic and beautiful she looks, and not have people thinking the opposite. While women might believe the opposite, think again.
10 Clothes Hug All The Right Places
While us ladies might like our clothes to be a little loose on us - “Yay I lost a pound!” - men prefer clothes to fit on our shape, showing off our curves the best way possible. A man likes to see a woman in a fitted dress that emphasizes what she has underneath. I know I know, we try so hard to buy the bigger size of something because we feel more comfortable in it, but ladies here's a little secret: don't! You'll be surprised at how amazing you'll feel once you start buying clothes that actually fit. That bigger size just makes you look bigger, and honestly who wants that? You need to be able to embrace your curves and the only way you can do this is by not being afraid of clothes that show it all off! The second you start wearing clothes that hug you in all the right places, that confidence that you gain, everyone else will feel it too.
9 Healthier Appeal
Women who have more meat on their bones tend to look healthier in a man’s eye. She doesn’t look like she’s constantly trying the new fad diet but instead looks well-nourished and happy. And who wants to try the new fad diet anyway? Eating right shouldn't not have to be about trying what's hot right now, it should be a lifestyle. A diet is temporary, but eating right and embracing the curves you have because of it is for life! Many female athletes, like the Williams sisters, embrace their curvier bodies. Sure, they are constantly active and must live a very healthy lifestyle, but they still aren't stick thing. And that's ok. Serena Williams loves her body and she encourages curvier women to do so too! A curvier woman has curves that are noticeable and isn’t afraid to flaunt them, making her not only healthy on the outside but on the inside, too. Strong is the new sexy.
8 Not Afraid To Eat (Or Drink)
A woman who has curves and isn't a stick figure clearly isn’t afraid of eating, and men love that. They don’t usually like going out with a girl who only eats a salad or doesn’t eat anything at all. They want a sexy woman who isn’t afraid to get dirty eating a monster burger while downing a craft beer (or three). And who are we kidding? Sometimes we are craving grub and want to sink our chompers into a nice juicy burger. Not every woman likes to eat a salad. And honestly who genuinely enjoys them? It takes longer to make them than to eat them, and the most delicious salads aren't all that healthy anyway. So live it up and eat whatever it is your body is craving. Now we aren't saying you should be eating Mcdonalds everyday just because it's what you want, but there are healthy ways that allow you to indulge.
7 Fuller Upper Body
Most men are pretty much obsessed with boobs, and the bigger they are, the better. Especially when they are naturally voluptuous. Women that have more curves usually hold some bigger breasts - and all natural might we add - having them catch any man’s eye they walk by. Again, this goes back to my point about looking younger. There are so many women out there who pay a lot of money to get a natural looking bigger upper body, and lucky for you, you get to save your money because you have them naturally. Also, women who try to sport the bigger upper body look and don't have the beautiful curves you have just look unnatural. I think I would rather take the natural look over anything, wouldn't you agree? And the benefits of wearing a low cut top...you actually fill the top up rather than looking like you're sinking in it. And trust me, that will definitely get a lot of attention!
6 Bigger Back Side
A lot of men are obsessed with the booty, too. And while us ladies like a tight, small butt to stuff into extra skinny jeans, men like a larger, thicker rear that doesn’t have to fit into a size zero. A larger butt is more attractive to a man, especially compared to the flat, no butts out there that don’t have any cushion for the pushin’. Also, if you look at all these Instagram workout models or search what it is women try to achieve at the gym (besides a 6-pack), it is a bigger behind! Lucky for you, you don't need to spend hours and hours working out at the gym to achieve this goal because you've already got it! Not only will men be checking out your backside, but women too, wondering how many hours you spent working on it or if it's even real!
5 Softer Body
Sure, we love soft things. Like a soft cashmere sweater or super soft skin. But when it comes to our bodies, we don’t think so. However, men feel differently and actually like a body that is softer to the touch. They like to snuggle up to a woman who is fleshier because it’s more comfortable and nicer to hold, instead of just coming into contact with skin and bones. Sure, we women are all about toning up and getting cut, but think about the benefits of softer skin. Your man doesn't have to worry about hurting you when he wants to snuggle up to you in bed, and honestly, no man wants to feel like he is going to hurt his woman with the littlest squeeze. And let's face it, every woman, skinny or not has a soft spot on her body. You're a woman, you're supposed to be soft to the touch. Imagine what it feels like grabbing on to a body builder. Sexy on a man, but a big no-no for a woman!
4 More Fertile (Or So It Looks)
Men are drawn to curvier women because they look more fertile than the skinnier girls. And while they might not be looking to have a kid anytime soon, chances are the time will come and they will want to settle down with the right woman who can bear plenty of children. When that time comes, he knows his curvy gal is the one who will do just that. Your curves are a sign of fertility. What do you think hips were made for? Obviously to support your baby while trying to multitask. Your curves are ready for the greatest gift of all. Have you ever seen a pregnant skinny woman? They look like they are going to fall over. Lucky for you, you'll be able to look healthy and natural because your curves support you during this time of your life. Who wants to feel like they'll tip over during pregnancy anyway?
3 Can Handle More
When a woman is too thin, she might appear too weak and therefore not able to handle things in the bedroom - or at least that’s what many men tend to think. They want to be gentle with a skinny girl because they’re almost afraid of breaking her, but a thicker woman? Now, that’s a woman that can handle getting tossed around on the bed a few times. You wouldn't want your man to be in his head the whole time while you two are together, wondering if he pulls a certain move, you'll break. A man enjoys a strong woman both inside and outside of the bedroom, and your curves prove just that. Intimacy is supposed to be natural, seamless, and if he isn't afraid of hurting you, the better your time in the bedroom will be! Really, I don't see anything wrong with that.
2 More To Hold Onto
Men like something to hold, especially during the act. He doesn’t want to feel a woman’s ribs or bones sticking out of her skin. He wants to grab onto a thick behind, or a fleshy thigh and enjoy what he’s holding - not to be nervous he’s about to break it off. When a man is showing signs of affection, whether it be in the bedroom or simply holding on to you while you're reading the morning paper, he wants to be able to feel something. A man doesn't want to wrap their arms around someone and feel like they're hugging a board. It's nice to be able to take in your woman and feel like you're truly holding on to something. A bony woman will not feel the same way as a curvier woman does, and most men prefer the curves.
1 Attractive Silhouette
Guys love a woman with a sexy silhouette - and the curvier the better. The more curves a woman has, the better her silhouette is and the more womanly she looks. Whether she’s dressed up for a night out or lounging around in sexy lingerie, men love a woman with a strong, sexy silhouette. Imagine what a man is thinking when you're wearing an attractive little number that hugs you in all the right places. Even when he lends you some sweatpants and you're not swimming in them, but rather look the sexiest you've ever looked. Every woman wants her man looking at her from a distant and thinking, damn how attractive is my woman. Having curves does just that because your body is fuller and more womanly. This goes back to the above point about how your figure makes you look like a babe. So don't deny your curves. Show them off. Not only will it make you feel more confident or sexier, but you'll see how much your man truly loves it!
