And when it comes to men dealing with issues, those who marry chubby women are good with it while the men who commit to women who are thin have a hard time dealing with issues.

The study suggests…

The research that they conducted also revealed that women who are thin are more unfriendly, unlike the chubby women. Skinny girls are also less expressive on emotions. That is where you get the stereotypical Skinny Girls! Chubby women make their partners happier. And the happier you increase your lifespan. That is what the study suggests.

Chubby women are more attractive

The study conducted by the ABC News included 40 male volunteers who didn’t undergo stress task and the ones who were stressed rated chubby women to be more attractive.


Stress impacts the perception and so stress shifts the classic stereotype and it may be vice versa and men considering thinner women to be more attractive if they are with chubby women. The more stressed we are the more our perception towards things change.

Tovee’s explanation

As Tovee explained to ABC News, “If you live in an environment where food is scarce, being heavier means that you have fat stored up as a buffer and that you must be a higher social status to afford the food in the first place. Both of these are attractive qualities in a partner in those circumstances.”

Stressed and unstressed

The study also concluded that men who were stresses gave a higher rating to a wide range of types of women than the unstressed men. ABC News explains, “This may have implications about how we choose the people to date and marry. For example, do men in high-stress jobs look for overweight mates, or are their standards lower?”

Scott M. Bea explained…

A clinical psychologist, Scott M. Bea explained the whole thing, he said, “In this case, mate selection criteria may become more liberal as a way of preserving the species. We have some proverbs that reflect this idea such as, ‘Any port in a storm.’ This is probably not just true of physical attractiveness or mate selection. For instance, if one is homeless, we might accept lodging that others would view as inferior.”
