Because of our work extolling the great value of women's fat, we are often asked why then do men find super-skinny models so attractive? The ultra-thin fashion models whose photos adorn these magazines and who flaunt the latest Parisian designs on runways are quite different from the women who are attractive enough to men that they are willing to pay to look at them, like Playmates.

What makes Playmates quite different from other young women is that they are much more curvaceous.
The typical Playmate's bust, waist, and hip measurements are 35-23-34.
Using the difference between bust and waist, and waist and hips in relation to height, a typical Playmate is 54% more curvy than an average university undergraduate.

The reasons men find these curvy figures so appealing can be found in our earlier blog. Their average BMI is only 17.1 and almost half have BMI's below 17 (compared with just 6% of Playmates).
