According to a new study published this week in PLOS ONE, men that are stressed fine heavier women attractive.
The study followed 81 males, between the ages of 18 to 24, who were split into two groups. One group was put in a room and asked to sit quietly. While the other half was given a role of a job applicant in front of a hiring committee.
Both groups were then shown images of women with different body mass indexed and asked if they found them attractive. They were presented a sale of 1 (very unattractive) to 9 (very attractive) and asked to pick the largest woman they found attractive and the smallest woman they found attractive.
The result of the study was that the men who took on a new project and were stressed out tended to pick woman with higher BMI. While on the other hand, the group of males who were the control group picked the more skinnier women.
