Women with figure in an hourglass shape give birth less

Women with figure in an hourglass shape like the famous Kim Kardashian are no longer fertile. Scientists have refuted the very popular stereotype.

Has long been dominated by the view that men are more attracted to women with large hips, slender waist and full Breasts for the reason that the figure into an hourglass shape indicates a high fertility, i.e. the ability of women to bear and give birth to many children. Supposedly male preferences are purely evolutionary in origin. However, scientists have proven that forms in the style of Kim Kardashian are not an indicator of female fertility. Actually, the men attracted to these women for the reason that this figure is an indicator of youth.

The idea of the connection type of figure with fertility originated in the epoch of Marilyn Monroe (never had children). Even then, it was argued that this type of shape is the most “prolific”. Appeared numerous assumptions of evolutionary scientists about what this figure refers to the capacity of women to bear men’s children and that’s why men find her so attractive. But anthropologists from the University of California, Santa Barbara decided to check the validity of this statement. They conducted a meta-analysis of dozens of existing studies over the last few years. The authors searched for the connection between body shape, attractiveness, fertility, and body mass index.

It turned out that children’s conception in women with figure in an hourglass shape occur much less frequently than in women with less severe forms. Most likely, this is due to the fact that this kind of figure is most pronounced in adolescence, that is, before 20 years, and then the fat on the sides somewhat “softens”. And the peak of fertility of women after 25. It is known that adolescents are significantly less likely to have children than women over the age of 25 years. The study also showed that higher body mass index often speaks to the higher number of conceptions in the period from 25 to 29. The researchers took into account all other factors that affect conception, including age, race, level of education and bad habits. (READ MORE)
