To evaluate their preferences after experiencing stressful situations, a study was conducted where stress was induced on study participants. They were later shown pictures of women with different body types -big made , curvy and underweight.

Men rated the heavier women as more attractive. 

Explaining the possible reason behind such a preference, Dr Viren Swami, who carried out the research at London's University of Westminster, said: "Increased stress in men is associated with a preference for heavier women. These physical features may communicate strength, control and independence during times of threat."
