Why would I listen to some research from The UNiversity of UTAH about what's attractive? Now if it was USC...

She added, "And from a woman's perspective, men's preferences are not the only thing that matters."

It's a good article. It had already been bookmarked
Although the findings sound suspect and contrary to usual male aesthetic preferences, maybe future research will confirm them. For example, maybe personality traits associated with the hourglass body type aren't ideal for long-term relationships. Obviously, no article would spin it like that, with say, curvy women being less rational or more likely to cheat, though such associations might exist. Anyway, that, to a degree, masculinized physical traits probably help a woman outside the home might have nothing to do with female waist-hip-ratio population distribution. It could be simply that WHR is inherited from both parents, with the male WHR working against ideal WHR in female offspring. Are women with the ideal WHR more likely to be in long-term relationships? That would be good for researchers to study.
