I find research on wide hips interesting — not because it has any useful value in my life, but because it seems to be published on such a regular basis. While reading the study though, a couple of other things emerge. Actually, the researchers found that women with a hip size of 33 to 34 centimeters were less likely to have had a one-night stand than those with hips measuring 31 to 32 centimeters. The researchers also never told us the actual measurements of the women they analyzed, only that their hips varied from 28 to 46 centimeters with an average hip width of Findings : Men were shown a photograph of a naked woman who had been digitally altered to change her breast size and waist-to-hip ratio. Findings : When men were asked to rank the attractiveness of 10 photographs of rear-facing nude women, they found that men had a stronger preference for lower waist-to-hip ratios.
After a study suggested women with broad hips have more sexual partners and one-night stands, we look at other alleged clues. A controversial study claims women with wider hips have more sexual partners and more one-night stands. Leeds Uni boffins say the broad-of-beam are more suited to childbirth and therefore keener to romp. Southampton University found pensioners with bigger craniums were better at memory tests.

For more than 50 years, anthropologists thought that the human pelvis was shaped by an evolutionary tug-of-war between the competing demands of bipedalism and childbirth.

Why, wondered David Bainbridge, a Cambridge-trained veterinary surgeon and zoologist, are humans the only species with curvy women?
