I’ve never bought into the lie, popular with some elements of the media, that everything will be better when you’re thin.
But, as a single woman trying everything I can to increase my chances of finding The One, I was interested to see how much of an issue size is for single men.
Thin me received more than double the attention – 36 messages, 211 likes and 210 visits.
The team showed photographs of bikini-clad Miss USA winners from the years 1999 to 2013 to 78 undergraduate women and asked participants to rate the winners according to how muscular, thin and attractive they were.
A size 18 woman, posting some of her least flattering, double chin-featuring pics, received 18 messages in five days.
That’s 18 more than the bodyshaming community might have you expect.
The profile names had to be slightly different because the site won’t allow two the same.
I have no idea why I came up with them btw – it’s not even like A Night To Remember was stuck in my head.
