    Do men really find big and curvaceous attractive?

    i think that most men are taught as boys growing up, fantasizing about their teacher or some woman on a commercial or magazine, therefore they have this image planted in their head of the ideal woman. i am happy to say that i was the "fat girl " growing up and there is nothing wrong with us.Iam happy and content with who I am. I alo know that every man has his preference. Just because a woman is thin, doesn't mean that she is smart,and healthy.

    Based on what many different men have told me...yes, they do seem to prefer curvaceous women. As my husband likes to say, other women and gay men (sorry guys, just quoting here!) perpetuate the stick-figure image of women, and most of the males I know who fantasize about that particular image are virgins. Obviously everyone has their own tastes, this is just based on the people I have talked to...nearly all of whom say they'd rather snuggle up to something that feels like a woman instead of a 2x4 smile.

    Much depends on how "curvy" the woman is. I prefer big and curvaceous women but only if the woman's body is defined. For example, a tummy that hangs down as blatant flab is not attractive. There still needs to be symmetry and form. This is becoming the norm today and fashion runways are promoting the curvy look.

    There is a difference between "big" (fat) and curvaceous.  Many big fat women have a delusion that they are curvy.  No, they are blobby.

    Now, there is a very small subset of men with a fat fetish called "chubby chasers".  So they find the fatties attractive, but most men do not.  That is not to say they like anorexic.

    You want to see what curvy is, check out Kim Kardasian.

    There are some men who are totally into big women. But generally men will be attracted to a women with a healthy looking figure, not neccessarily someone who is over-weight. Everyone has different tastes though.

    Yes Men love big curvy women like that girl that had her commercial pulled a few weeks a go she is hot! Like CoCo ice teas girl shes hot Monique the comedian is Hot,Men love women with curves.But being big and curvy is totally different from being fat and obese.You can be big and sexy like Buffy the Body but just being a walking blob does not make you big and sexy.

    Let me put it like this...  Small waist + big booty = what I prefer.  I DO however find slender women attractive because a slender woman can have nice curves.  Bottom line is you must have a lil something something in the back. 
    The better the personality the more willing I would be to lower those standards.

    It definitely depends on how you define 'big and curvaceous.' Yes men evolutionarily love a great hip to waist ratio (.7).  Imagine the hourglass shape.  Do men like overweight women? Maybe. But I'd say most men are attracted to women with "healthy genes."

    I know they are better in bed sexually as long as they are happy with their weight. Low self esteem is the biggest of all turn offs.

    Hey, we're all different.  Sure, cultural stereotyping affects us all (male or female), but as poet e.e. cummings wrote, "each has his tastes."

    The cool thing is, no matter who you are or what you look like, there's probably someone out there for whom you are ideal.

    You can not possible sum up what all men find attractive. If you did a poll from one of the globe to the other I am sure you will find taste varies.
    We just need to be happy with who we are and if there is room for improvement, then make those improvement.
    You can not please all the people all the time.
