Men prefer not so leggy women

Men's love affair with leggy women is a myth, claim scientists.

The latest research has shown that while they may think they prefer women with longer legs, in reality they prefer them to be in proportion to their bodies.

Shown computer generated images of bikini-clad women with varying leg to body lengths, they consistently preferred the more average physiques of those with limbs identical in length to their torsos.
The findings back up research earlier this year that showed men preferred the shape of ordinary women, equivalent to dress size 14, than fashion models and Playboy centrefolds.

However they contradict a study three years ago that claimed the most attractive leg shape for a woman was 1.4 times the length of her upper body.

In the latest survey by the University of California, researchers asked groups of men and women in America and England to judge the attractiveness of a series of computer generated images of the same woman but with slightly varying leg-body-ratios (LBR).

They found that the closer the ratio was to 1:1 the more attractive the women were thought to be. If the legs were too short, or too long then attractiveness fell.

The results, published in the journal Body Image, seem to back up previous research that contrary to popular opinion men prefer average physiques to so-called supermodels and Playboy models.

In June, a University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, asked 100 male students to judge the attractiveness of 201 line drawings of female torsos with different hip, waist and shoulder measurements.

They discovered that men preferred the average body size of women aged 25 to 44 to so-called "super attractive models".

The equivalent to a size 14 dress, or 36-28-38 and 5ft 4in tall, the average size of women in both Australia and Britain.

Three years ago a study by University College London came to a different conclusion. While a leg body ration of 1:1 was deemed the ideal for men, for women it was said to be 1.4: 1, like the supermodel Naomi Campbell.

I'm definitely a "southern hemisphere" kinda guy too!

The thing about great legs is that they almost always make a great ASS of themselves!
