TBH I think it looks better myself.
Girls have always loved my ass. Also, while a skinny torso looks better in magazines, there's something to be said for having a thick torso that conveys some type of power IRL.
I suppose it's not conventionally attractive in terms of what's in the magazines, but then again I've never found for e.g. Paris Hilton hot at all.
Not that it matters because the most important thing is the way you carry yourself, but you get my point anyway.
