(Newser) – Women need not be supermodels or Playboy bunnies to attract men’s attention. In fact, guys tend to find so-called average women the most attractive, scientists tell the Telegraph. They polled 100 male students on line drawings of women’s torsos with varying measurements, and found that the men preferred those of average women—say 36-28-38 and 5-foot-4—over centerfolds.

“The orthodoxy says that you will be attractive with a certain waist-hip ratio no matter how the rest of your body varies," said the lead researcher. "Our study shows this is not the case.”
