What Men Want And What Women Want – following an article we ran back in December 2012 there has been a new survey published showing what men and women see as the ideal body and face and how their views differ.
Much as before the men are looking for bigger breasts for their ideal woman than the women themselves believe to be ideal. One of the biggest changes from the previous Debenham’s survey and the previous study conducted at Newcastle University is that whereas women were looking at a Kelly Brook style curvy body as the ideal shape now it seems that their ideal shape would have Jennifer Aniston’s breasts and Emma Watson’s hips.
As far as facial features go again there is a difference between the sexes with women preferring the look of model Cara Delevingne and men going for the more obviously sexy look of Transformers hottie Megan Fox.
When it comes to legs it is no surprise that men and women are more in agreement as long and slender is just about everyone’s ideal when it comes to legs. The choice of person differs though with women thinking that their ideal set of pins is similar to Elle ‘The Body” Macpherson whilst the ideal set of legs for men brings them to think of model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
What should be clear from this survey conducted by lingerie company Bluebella is that if women are eating celery sticks in the hope that it will attract a man they are doing it all wrong as men see a much curvier woman as their ideal whereas women are looking at more of a catwalk queen look as what they see as perfection.
As far as the ideal male goes women see the face of Jamie Dornan (good news for the producers of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie) topped by the hair of Harry Styles whereas men are imagining the face of David Beckham and the hair of Brad Pitt as their ideal male look.
When it comes to male body shape again there is a male/female disconnect as men favour a stronger body type with the torso of Ryan Gosling and the biceps of Wolverine star Hugh Jackman with women preferring the body of model David Gandy and the biceps of Brad Pitt.
Legs again see more of a consensus between the male and female versions of the ideal, with both sexes picking footballers; women preferring the David Beckham look and men going for Frank Lampard.
Bluebella founder Emily Bendell said of the survey results that ‘beauty really is in the eye of the beholder – it should give us all more body confidence!’
