Bella Petite strives to promote petite women with positive, beautiful, and desirable imagery.  Our mission is focused on petite women in business, beauty, and the fashion world.  We are breaking down the negative stereotypes the current fashion magazines and entertainment industry have consistently portrayed over the last fifty years.

Petite women with long legs are the most sexually attractive to men, scientists claim.

Females such as Scarlett Johansson, Raquel Welch, and Marilyn Monroe with short slender bodies, large busts, and slim limbs have the ideal body shape, according to research.

Dr. William Brown, of Brunel University, which carried out the study, said: ‘We found that shorter, slimmer females with long slender limbs and larger breasts are more attractive.’

Small is beautiful: The study reveals that men find women like Scarlett Johansson, Marilyn Monroe, and Rachel Weisz, with long legs, small frames, and bigger busts, more attractive because they have low ‘body masculinity’

Body symmetry is important to what men and women find aesthetically pleasing in each other, the research suggests.

Previous studies had demonstrated that those with facial features that are symmetrical – so the left and right sides of the face match – are more attractive to the opposite sex.

But the relationship between body symmetry and attractiveness has been less clear. In the Brunel research, both men and women reported that symmetric bodies were more attractive than asymmetric ones.

The scientists claim, however, that we do not notice symmetry in the body directly, but instead look for much more obvious signs of attractiveness such as height, leg length, and shoulder definition.

This means women with low ‘body masculinity’ – who are short with long legs and a larger bust – are highly desirable to men.  ARTICLE INFORMATION AND CREDIT: MailOnline

  1. OMG! I have dated several women over the years that were much shorter than myself; more than 6″ shorter.

    I am always uncomfortable with people much shorter than myself as it makes me feel like a carnival act; I hate feeling like a freak.

    I married a woman that is 4″ shorter than I am; we BOTH feel this difference is a perfect fit.

    If a woman is 5’0″ and with a guy 6’0″ tall, nothing feels normal; as my 6’4″ tall friend put it.

    As a basketball player in high school, every cheerleader seemed to like me. I dated a few, but were all too short for me to be comfortable with.

    None of the cheerleaders were taller than 5’6″ tall. Too bad, I liked a couple of them, but just felt odd to be with them.

    Recently, I saw a study that showed research that focused on marriage longevity. It focused on marriages that lasted more than twenty-five years. Of the nearly 1000 couples followed and interviewed, 87% were made up of a man being 4.1″ taller than the woman, and less than 1% were made up of a man that was 8″ taller or more. That IS A REAL SCIENTIFIC STUDY and was PEER REVIEWED.

    In addition, the second part of the study researched divorced couples; it found 79% of marriages that ended within five years of marriage were made up of a man that was more than 6″ taller AND 67% of those cases involved aggressive behavior, such as domestic violence by the man, 90% had mental cruelty by the man, and 81% had claims of male infidelities.

    Conclusion found the “Ideal differential is +4.1”

    You can say what you want but marriage and divorce records are easy enough to research and the stats do show a pattern.

    I love my wife and am glad I did not settle for someone that was not closer to my size.

    Best wishes,

  2. Some of the women you’ve mentioned above have had breast augmentation. I’d be curious to know if this adds or detracts to their overall desirability.

  3. My wife and i are tall im 6’2 and she is 6’6 and big boned.she works with a friend that is 4’9 and 80lbs.she says she has always been attracted to tall people.my wife and i have fun with her co worker and she just loves it
