It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the body ideal most sold by society is of a slimmer woman rather than a plus-sized woman, even with all the efforts to promote plus-sized women, the image remains stubbornly slim, just now curves in the “right places” have been added.

So, it’s the same story, just a different angle on it.

The question is, why when it comes to women are we obsessed with slim? Is it just because men prefer slimmer women on average? If so, why?

Well, as ever, the answer is complex, and to understand it, we have to look at the law of attraction.

Sexual attraction is all about babies

There’s simply no escaping it, the law of attraction is fuelled by the desire to procreate. No matter whether a person wants kids or not, the story is the same.
