Well, hell. I`m not any of these sizes. I`m an American 10. Guess I`m not average OR wanted by either sex.

Oh well. I won`t tell the guys I date I`m supposed to be a different size.

Perhaps this would be true if all women were correctly proportioned, like these (except perhaps for the no-neck thing...), but the fact of the matter is that today`s lifestyle and diet means most women end up with all their weight on their stomach, which results in tragically unnecessary amounts of floppiness. Gross. Most people out there who actually are a size 16 look like someone has stuck an extra tummy on them that was made of play-doh by a four-year-old.

I think the size 12 lady looks bigger than the size 16. Also she has no neck. Bad camera angle for her. The whole thing just doesn`t make sense. Some pleasant floppiness, though!

I know who these girls are and no one in that picture is a size 16. This is very misleading. Caroline is only a size 12, not a 16. And Anna is the same size. They say 12/14 so clients don`t think they`re too small for plus size work, but neither one is bigger than a 12. And the average woman is not a size 16, she is a 12. Where did this horribly misleading pic come from... Glamour???

Aramil.. this is not the mean, this is the average, which may not necessarily be the mean. The average is generally a measure of the middle of a dataset. So GENERALLY half of all yankee women are size 16 or larger.

Aussieguy29, there is a difference between mean, median, and mode. Pictured here is the mean, which is what you have when you add all the weights (or desired weights) together and divide by the number of women. You are thinking of median, which is what you get when you line up all the weights in order, then pick the one right in the middle.

"I bet you that a 350 lb. lineman in football is in much better shape and much healthier than you are."

He may be as in shape, but not more. I`m a gymnast. & of course, muscle isn`t the same as disgusting fat, so he may have 200 pounds of muscle on him, while someone else will have 200 pounds of fat, which is neither healthy nor attractive. I`ll disregard your ignorance in jumping to the conclusion that I`m bulimic because I have a disdain for fatties.

yeah, well the AVERAGE may be a size 16 but that means that HALF of all women are size 16 or larger. So the three women picture here only represent the lower half of all women. So this is slightly misleading.

leesah, get your finger out of your throat and listen up: You can have some fat and still be healthy. Weight isn`t the only factor in determining health. I bet you that a 350 lb. lineman in football is in much better shape and much healthier than you are. Blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and other factors are much better indicators of health.

This is coming from a skinny guy, so it is not biased. It is fact.

Anna got the worst angle. Doesn`t do her justice at all, seeing as I think both size 8 and size 16 look hot.

Also, I would easily take any of them, but preferably if they were younger... hell, I`m guessing the age difference is quite huge between them and I...

Pff. Dress size counts for nothing. I know girls who are a size 10 but they have a little bum, no boobs and are shaped like a barrel. Then there are size 10 girls who have boobs, bum and a small waist. One category is hotter and it has nothing to do with their weight

To translate that into American that is:

And I agree that those women aren`t really representatives as most size 16`s do not have a tummy as flat as that and they look pretty airbrushed. But still the point is made.

All 3 of those ladies are gorgeous, but unrepresentative of their size. Most size 16 women are not nearly as gorgeous as the one in the picture, same with other two. Beauty isn`t all about size.

I think this depends a lot more with personal preferences than anything else. For example, a lot of people would find a 2 too thin (that would be a UK 4 I think) but I think its fine. While a 14 (UK 16) is on the chub side for me, might be perfect for someone else. Some like curves, some like thin.

I`ll side with you on this one Fancy. I find that women who are around size 12 or 14 look the best. Amazing curves and not so thin they look sick.

Note: Marilyn Monroe and Betty Page were viewed as the two most beautiful golden age pin up models. Any guy who sees them and doesnt admit them to be unGODly gorgeous is just gay or retarded. Marilyn Monroe was a size 12. Betty Page was a size 14.

It`s amazing how these sorts of pics get the most comments/arguments. Yes, 12 here looks `fatter` than the 16. 16 is probably about 6` and is pretty obviously NOT fat. 8...has no boobs. She loses that part of the battle. I want to know what the actual measurements of these women are. And who shot this. The photography is pretty awful, especially in the case of 12.

Ok, I don`t mind a woman with a little heft and all three of these women are attractive, but anyone who says the woman in the middle is not the most attractive is lying.

The biggest woman is actually second most attractive because the lady on the left is just kinda strange looking.

"healthy weight (none of that, "my genes make me 300lb" crap) who cares what dress size you have."

If you`re a healthy weight, you`re going to have a smaller dress size. The only exception being you`re like 6`5". Accepting overweight people is only accepting unhealthy lifestyles. I get hate all the time because I openly express my disgust for overweight people, but people need to drop the moral crap and realize that being nice to fatties isn`t gonna make them any less likely to have a heart attack.

I don`t know if this is supposed to surprise me, but I don`t think it does.

Men are biologically programmed to like heavier, healthy looking women (12+), women are bombarded with media preaching the whole skinny thing, and we are definitely a heavier country than either sex would like to be.

That said, I`m totally with the others, as long as you are a healthy weight (none of that, "my genes make me 300lb" crap) who cares what dress size you have.

What`s with all the negative comments? They all look healthy. Sizes are really irrelevant, people`s frames, fat distribution and muscle mass totally overrule it. I`m on the smaller side (32-20-34 and 5`3)but my friend looks just as healthy at the same height and she`s a size 8 (US). I also think that a lot less people would be overweight if support was available instead of a "EFF OFF, CAKE EATER OINK OINK!" attitude

NO, that`s not what we`re supposed to conclude. I think it`s just about the fact that women are more turned on by the sheer act of sex, as opposed to the visual experience of it. I don`t know why you`re so keen to deny that, it`s not as if there`s anything intrinsically wrong with that. I doubt that anyone here is trying to deny that men and women experience sex, sexuality and attraction differently, I`m just suggesting that visuality has a lot to do with it.

Angilion, I should have said *most* men are more into the visual. And I do think that`s completely true. I am strictly referring to sexual attraction/pleasure here.
From Scientific American; "The researchers found that although nude exercise genitally aroused all the onlookers the least and intercourse excited them the most, the type of actor was more important for the men than for the women. Heterosexual women’s level of arousal increased along with the intensity of the sexual activity largely irrespective of who or what was engaged in it."

"Is it just me or is the size eight at a better angle with better skin complexion?

Maybe I`m just trying to reconcile the fact that I only find the size eight remotely good looking and I don`t want to seem shallow...."

It isn`t just you. I think it`s more a case of better lighting and photography than better complexion, but the result is the same.

Also, she`s in the middle of three and appears slightly in front of the other two. Those things also favour her in a photo like this.

Regarding the sexed difference in supposedly ideal sizes...I wonder what result they`d get if they asked only people who are sexually attracted to women. I`d bet that the difference would be significantly less than for men and women in general.

If they just picked people at random, then they are effectively asking different questions to most of the men and most of the women. `Attractive` would be `sexually attractive` for most of the men and `aesthetically attractive` for most of the women.

"I`m one of those tiny, petite type girls. It`s something I used to be proud of but now I`m kind of worried about what kind of men are into smaller women.

Men with some sort of complex who need a woman to be smaller so they can feel like a "protector"? Idk, it`s worrisome."

In reality, you`d have to judge it on an individual basis. Different men are different. If you`re with a man, you`re with him. You`re not with some vague idea of a whole load of men, an idea which can`t be accurate anyway because there`s too much variation from man to man. Maybe he isn`t into smaller women. Maybe he`s into you. Isn`t that kind of the point in a personal relationship?

There`s plenty to worry about in relationships without adding more. The key question regarding any particular man is how he acts towards you. You can get people being over-protective with any combination of sizes.

I get this all the time, being almost 6` and a size two. I`ve ALWAYS been naturally thin (only very slender more recently due to my job) and I get a lot of crap from bigger girls. I will never forget a thread on another forum I frequent; It was a thread with a bunch of heavy girls b*tching about their weight and how they can lose it. I gave them my work-out/diet routine and you might as well thought I had killed a puppy in front of them with their attitude.

"Men are notoriously way more about the visual than any other senses."

Be wary of stuff "everyone knows" is true. It`s usually wrong. A good example from not too long ago would be that women were notoriously bad at maths. You go back 50 years and that was common knowledge. It wasn`t true, but it was common knowledge.

Besides, "the visual" is about a lot more than simply shape. Body language is visual, and that really matters. You phrase it that way yourself:

"I think all of these girls look attractive because they look confident and comfortable."

Exactly. That`s generally true. Men, women, straight, bi, gay...it`s still generally true.

Those sizes are off. The girl in the middle is likely a 4. The girl on the left is probably about a 8/10, maybe larger at her height. As for "ideal" sizes, the national average is 16, but certainly nowhere near ideal. It is extremely unhealthy.

@LemonTarte: I`m a 6ft4 guy. Frankly, I don`t care what height girls are, it`s what they show, it`s their confidence, their confidence in their beauty. I got a kick out of a 5ft2 girl, date a 5ft6 girl, fiancéed a 5ft7 girl, and wouldn`t have minded a 5ft10 girl. At the same time, many womens of many heights and sizes don`t impress me.

I don`t think it is possible to judge by pants size. A woman who is 6 ft tall and wears an 8 can be downright skinny. If a woman is 5 ft tall and wears a size 8, then they are closer to `Mom` jeans.

God, I hope they are airbrushed. I am a Uk6 and about 5`11" , I once went up to a size 10 ( looked fat too) but my skin has never looked that flawless, and i am reasonably fit and exercised. What worries me is people who are too tubby to touch their toes- how do they look after their feet?

I`m one of those tiny, petite type girls. It`s something I used to be proud of but now I`m kind of worried about what kind of men are into smaller women.

Men with some sort of complex who need a woman to be smaller so they can feel like a "protector"? Idk, it`s worrisome.

lol airbush. Those aren`t their actual sizes by FAR. Would Caroline still be as mildly alright looking if she let her boobs sag back to how they normally are and stand forward where her arm isn`t concealing her tummy fat and her thighs went back to their natural flappy-loose-skinness?

There`s a reason they`re all in poses that stretch the skin. They`re hiding their sagging fat. & I wont even deny it, it absolutely disgusts me.

These pictures are EXTREMELY flattering. I almost refuse to believe that Caroline is a sixteen. I know girls who are sixteens, and they are a LOT bigger than her. Not a little, a lot. And I`m a natural eight, and I may be being critical of myself, but Tilly definitely looks a lot thinner than me everywhere. I think those would be more accurately represented at a six, a ten-twelve, and a 12-14.

I must say I definitely prefer the 8, but probably the fact that I`m scrawny (5`10", 125lbs) helps me in being attracted to people closer to my own weight.

That being said, I have no problems with 16s, but you have to stop and think: 16 is the average. There`s no way to know how the data is skewed, or how they took the average (mean, median, mode, weighted mean, etc), but it`s safe to assume that a large portion of the population is larger than 16 and many much larger.

Also, obesity rates are dramatically higher in the US than in other countries, meaning what`s normal/average in the US does not resemble the normal/average of the rest of the world, or even the western/modern/industrialized world.

Hell, I can`t even get the size 20`s to look at me but this is the ideal. In otherwords, what someone would pick if the could choose.

That being said Tillie wins hands down imho. Not because of her size, but she wins in many areas the other two fall flat in.

Most women who are size 16 don`t have a body like that, they have quite a belly.
I get kinda annoyed at these things, this probably came from a woman`s mag. They`re like oh look how beautiful this size 16 woman is, well that woman is super lucky since she has amazing skin and no stomach and her fat goes to the right places. Not many woman who are bigger look like that naked.

If the average is 16, it means men prefer something below the average. This means there are few 12s and 8s and there are 20s or 24s which the picture doesn`t show (and i believe you don`t want to see)

I dont want to gain weight cause id actually feel to fat then >.> even though guys like that more o.o kinda sad what the media has done :/ it has made me fear gaining weight lol Its funny that the media wants girls really skinny, when guys want girls a little "chunky" XD

"Actually, a lot of women when they work out worry/start losing weight they will lose their breasts. Thats why a lot of trainers will tell you to minimally focus on chest exercises. I`m not saying if you lose 10lbs you`ll go from a DD to an A, but you will see them decrease slightly as your body shrinks."

I use to lift weights, and while that is usually the norm, as a lost weight my breasts maintained the same size, and I never gain breast by gaining weight, its usually at random... but as a lady with larger breasts, I frankly don`t like them.

They get in the way, they`re annoying, can`t wear nice blouses without wearing an undershirt so your boobs aren`t popping out, and some how, if you have large breasts men assume you`re easy.

Sarah, when I was younger I weighed about 20lbs more than I do today. Not much younger, mind you, I was about 15ish.

Then I had to lose a lot of weight. My fabulous C-36 went down to a smallish B-32. Not too sad, as I could never wear the stuff I do now, but still, I like to look back and see my big boobs. A lot of women who lose body mass often see a slight shrink in their breast size as well (not only just the band-size).

Iroj, that`s a matter of bra size, not actual size. It`s a matter of proportion. They don`t change that much unless you`re talking about a girl who weighs 250 pounds.
At my weight I`m a 38E. If I lost a lot of weight, the 38 would turn into 36, but that`s because my CHEST would shrink. But my tits would stay the same size and I`d end up being a 36F.
Basically, 36F = 38E = 40DD = 42D. The tits stay the same size, but the proportions grow much bigger.

@sjay: That pic looks more accurate than the one posted here, assuming they`re all tall girls.
There`s a giant difference between a size 12 whose 5`1 and a size 12 that`s 6`1. Any woman whose 6`1 would be goddamn anorexic at an American size 8.

In general, I personally find women who are size 12 or 14 often more attractive.

However, the woman`s shape is actually much more important. There is good research that shows that hip/waist ratio is actually a better predictor for what people find attractive. The closer a woman is to a 0.6 ratio, the more attractive they are viewed, regardless of size.

What about sizes 10 and 14? I`m a 12 (14 in some trousers), and I would love to be a size 10. Most size 8`s are too skinny.

This is of course, in British standards.

"The size 16 girl actually looks better than the size 12 girl. How is that possible?"

Because the size 12 model does not have an attractive face. The size 16 model does, and believe it or not, a woman`s face makes her more attractive regardless of her body size.

And the boobies, too.

The point is that, though both men`s and women`s ideals are smaller than real life women (the size 16 who is SMOKING HOT, BTW), women are even less realistic and more harsh on themselves than men, who, in fact, like a woman who isn`t too skinny, with a little meat on her bones.

My theory, as a man, is because a man wants a woman to have breasts, which means she has to have a little weight. Women don`t, they just hold themselves to an impossible standard.

*shrug* All three of them are attractive. the sad point that is underlying this, is to get the national average of 16, you have to consider the ratio of girls that are size 12, and girls that are over size 16 (including all those lovelies you see at Walmart.)

There is definately a difference between being voluptous and fat.
