Do guys prefer skinny or curvy girls?

Two major thoughts seem to predominate, and depending on circle of friends and location, many girls will choose one of the following because "that's what makes the more attractive to guys" -- (1) girls that are extremely skinny with slender limbs and minimal body fat, or (2) curvy girls with soft features and "full figure". Which do most guys prefer? and why? (assuming within recommended health BMI, and no plastic surgery)

    That really depends on the guys preference. Some like to have a little meat on their woman, the classic curvy woman, volupturous figure. Some guys like the societies version of the super skinny never eats anything waif. Personally, I think that the more curvy women would be a better choice (we're not talking FAT here, just healthy normal women) because it feels great to touch, the women are more comfortable with their selves and they actually eat something sometimes. The super skinny is just unnatural and it takes too much work to be so superficial. They are not happy with their selves and it shows up in many ways which men are never eager to discover.

    Society dictates the super skinny as a role model for women and a lot of girls emmulate that ideal, but end up with disorders and health issues, but hey, the guys are attracted to them aren't they? what about the intelligence factor? I think that if you are intelligent, sexy, fun, and eat food without purging it, you are most likely going to receive the most quality men who are attracted to you.

    I am not a guy, but I have been a student of male behavior and this is just the tip of the giant topic regarding men and their behavior.

    If you are interested in reading more of my theory, I would be happy to share it with you. Just let me know and I'll give you a few ideas and opinions to think about (or just read).

    women, no matter what you look like, it's irrelevant what the guys oogle at, it's what they are really attracted to and what is most important overall.

    You go out with skinny girls but you go in with curvy girls.

    Skinny girls are great to wear designer clothes and hang on your arm when you go out in case you are somewhat famous and somebody takes your picture. But when you go in and want to make love to a beautiful woman, you want a curvy girl with soft flesh, natural breasts and all around softness and womanness if that is a word.

    It is the same for guys. I am a woman and the worst lover I ever had was the most good looking one: young, muscular, beautiful, athletic gymnast. It was like making love to a wood board. The six pack...hard and uncomfortable. Give me back the love handle and the softness of the flesh any day...

    I, myself, have a dilemma. I can can be thin and everything I wear look so great on me and everybody is complimenting me on my figure but when I make love, I feel like a bag of bones or...I can be fatter, no clothes fits anymore, nothing fit in the store but my husband is in heaven when we're in our bed,

    I wouldn't say minimal body fat is ideal, but I'd say that a little higher BMI than that is ideal. It really depends on the girl, I think. But outside of the healthy BMI, their attractiveness really tapers off. I would say that about in the middle of the healthy BMI range is ideal. Good night!

    A lot of guys I know prefer curves on a woman. As one put it, no one likes a bone but a dog. It's all individual preferences really, so it's impossible to say what guys like as a whole.

    Curvy over skinny ANYTIME! I like women who have feminine features, and curves are definitely feminine.
