Why Do Men Like BBW?

Finding Beauty in all Women

Why do men like BBW? When it comes to dating, many will say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone likes or enjoys the same flavor of ice cream, which is why Baskin Robbins has 31 flavors. The same rings true when it comes to choosing your mate. One size does not fit all, but that doesn’t mean that one size should be considered more desirable. This fact is proven by the many men who find themselves attracted to women that do not fit the current standards of beauty. This would include women that are considered bbw.


What is a bbw?

A bbw or big, beautiful woman, is a term coined for women that are considered thick women with a cute face. The women that call themselves bbw’s exude a higher level of confidence than most women do. They embrace their large and curvy bodies which make the men want them and the women want to be like them. Size does not make a women beautiful, instead it’s rated on how she presents herself. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes just like ice cream comes in all colors and flavors. Just like a beautifully decorated cake, if you don’t like what’s in the inside, it can ruin the whole dessert.

The label bbw has been thrown around and misconstrued for quite some time. Although this term has gained popularity over the last couple of decades, this reference has been around for over thirty years. Generally women who are plus size are bbws although everyone seems to have a different definition.

Why do men like bbw?

New rat studies show that rats have a preference for sexuality based on what happened to them during their first sexual encounter. This may explain why men have a specific type. For whatever underlying reason, their are plenty of fat admirers in the world, meaning men that love plus-size, “overweight” (hate that word!) women.

Men are attracted to women with extra meat and curves for many different reasons. Some men will say it’s their personalities while others find that a bigger woman has a mature body. Guys will even tell you that the reason they prefer bigger ladies is because they see the additional weight as a sign of fertility.

Fat admirers love to see the jiggling of flesh and the softness of a round belly.

My great grandfather apparently married a BBW because it was the fashion in the late 1800s. Maybe it will come around in fashion again, although I hope with Women’s lib and body positivity, that women won’t come in fashions in the future.

Fat admirers and bbws

Having a particular type or preference when it comes to choice in women, has nothing to do with how the public rates the standards of beauty.  Some men are not strong enough to go against the trend and are “closet fat admirers”, marrying a fashionable body typed woman but longing for what really turns them on, a BBW. This is a point that fat admirers are very vocal about. In fact, most are obsessed with the thought of being with a plus size woman.  Some people call it a “fetish” but since half of all women by definition are plus sized it can’t be a fetish since that by definiton means an unusual sexual obsession and 50% is not unusual.


Despite what the media and society defines as beauty, a half of all women have curves and cushion. Just because a woman is not a size 2 does not make her less appealing to all men. It also does not mean that she is not health conscious or that she is lazy. It simply means she is built differently and has more beauty to offer. Contrary to popular belief, size is mostly genetically determined.

Men have types of all kinds

Instead of asking why do men like bbw, appreciate the fact that there are men that understand beauty comes in all forms. Men also see the bonuses of plumper chicks who do not diet. This means that these women have enough confidence and self-esteem that they do not conform to the pressure of society do be something that they are not.

The majority of fat admirers will admit this is one of the biggest pluses of being submissive to their idea of attractive. Confidence to most fat admirers equals sexy. In their eyes, a healthy and beautiful woman is seen as one that has meat on her bones and curves that lasts for days. It symbolizes that these females enjoy the finer things in life instead of wasting time on the viewpoint of society.


Most men are not looking for a reaction by dating plus size women. These men want a woman that will acknowledge them and not be self hating. This is not to say that all skinny women are self hating, since most skinny women are skinny by genetics as well.

I recommend reading Big Big Love to help you understand the world of “fat admiration” and to help you feel good about yourself if you are a BBW in this thin obsessed world.
