I have some super skinny friends who are considered really hot and always get hit on and then there are celebs who are super skinny, like Olivia Wilde and Megan Fox she supposedly has a 23 inch waist! Oh boy… touchy subject.
I knew that sooner or later this question would come up and I would have to answer it. And, like everything else, I will answer it honestly without sugar-coating. To start things off, I can tell you that one of the things that guys will talk about is who we think is a hot chick.
However, women are constantly dieting and exercising to make their bodies look ideal for men and to be healthy too, of course. There was a study I read in college about body weight and attractiveness in women.
Then, hundreds of women looked at these same pictures and rated how they believed men would rate the picture. What they found was that men prefer a woman that is pounds heavier than what the women believed to be the ideal weight that men want. This study and others can be found in The Evolution of Desire by David M Buss Now I am not saying go cancel your gym membership and eat a tub of ice cream on the couch. Weight means your entire body weight — muscle, organs, fat, water, etc.
Being fit is sexy. Fit means that you have a low body fat percentage for women, having a body fat percentage in the lower 20s is good. Believe me, you have to work to put on a lot of muscle. You would need to have the intention to put on muscle to put on enough muscle to appear abnormally muscle-y.
In other words, a woman who is the same size as another woman but has a higher amount of muscle than the other woman will actually weigh more than the less muscular woman. For most men, runway models are way too skinny to be considered an ideal body type. This is an added note: In terms of Megan Fox and her supposed 23 inch waist: Waist size is meaningless unless you take all of the other measurements into consideration height, hips, shoulders, etc.
