We all know that the fashion industry prefers skinny models to fuller figured ones, but do you ever wonder how the rest of the population feels about body size? Well, one new survey conducted for the German magazine Revue suggests that both men and women overwhelmingly prefer fuller figures to the waif look. The poll found that 77% of women and 86% of men find curvaceous bodies more appealing than skinnier versions. When asked to compare photographs of a well-known German actress with a fleshier figure to that of Kate Moss, the pollsters found that only 14% of men and 23% of women sided with the skinny supermodel.

Do you agree with this study? Is a fuller figure better than the waif look?
