Bombshells with brains – Study reports that curvy women are more clever.
In dressing right for your figure we all know the basic body type shapes of apple, rectangle, pear, and hourglass, but now a scientific study in the Journal Evolution and Human Behaviour states that research has proven that “women with large hips and small waists are more intelligent than those with either “apple-shaped” or linear bodies,” as reported in The Times of London.
The paper also suggests that study results indicate that these women give birth to more intelligent children – possibly a result of higher levels of omega3 fatty acids on the hips. The researchers also believe that this may be a new explanation as for why many men find curvy women more alluring.
Now, baby got back and whole lot of lady lumps, but this seems rather biased for all those who find lanky models pretty hot and what about those French women who can shake their very lean booty in a pair of skinny jeans? We also believe that body types come in and out vogue based on the fashion trends of the time– 50′s bombshell, 60′s waif, glamazon supermodels, and a whole lot of women who have learned to be smart enough to make the most of what they’ve got!
Granted we believe that we are the ultimate in gorgeous genius as well as our progeny, but that’s part of the mantra that we tell ourselves to motivate us for the day ahead— you should see us before the glam wand hits! Maybe curvier women are smarter simply because they have to be pretty clever to find the right pair of jeans to cover their butt and fit that tiny waist… just thinking out loud until the next study comes out.
