Why Men Swoon for Curvy Women

Men have a good evolutionary reason for preferring women with narrow waists and wide, womanly hips, says the London Sunday Times. Women with a classic “hourglass” figure, a new study has found, tend to have smarter children. Using data from 16,000 women, University of Pittsburgh and University of California researchers found that moms with large hip-to-waist ratios were more intelligent themselves, and gave birth to children who scored higher on standardized tests, as seen in The Week.

Growing babies’ brains thrive on omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in the type of fat that tends to settle around a woman’s hips. Tummy fat, on the other hand, is high in omega-6 fats, which don’t seem to promote brain development. Women who are thin or stick-figured also tend not to have high levels of omega-3s. This may be one reason evolution programmed men to be attracted to curvy women. Previous studies have found another possible reason: Women with this body shape tend to be more fertile. May all of you always be blessed with good health.
