10 Things Men Find Most Physically Attractive In Women

by | Love

Aug 23, 2023

What do men really like about a woman’s body that pulls them close? We asked these questions, too, until we figured out what men like in women physically completely. It goes beyond her boobs and her arse; it goes beyond the smiles and all of that. Here are the ten physical features that guys like in women.

1. A Good Looking Butt

Bear in mind that I did not say “big” butt. While some men are lovers of big butts, not all seem to like this physical feature in women. A vast majority of men are more interested in how the butt looks. 

A good-looking butt does not necessarily have to be big. It just has to project backward and slope down in a very aesthetically pleasing way.

Guys think arses like this are very sexy to look at. Let’s accept it: they are. In the coming weeks to months, we will be showing women the best clothes to wear and how to wear these clothes so that their arses look a lot better.

2. Good Looking Boobs

Guys are suckers for boobs as well. I have not met a guy who did not like to look at or touch boobs. We have an article up about why guys like big boobs. You may have to check it out. 

Boobs look great and can be very arousing. When they are not arousing, they are quite fascinating. 

Henry told us: “Sometimes I am very fascinated by boobs. I want to know how it hangs there. If it feels heavy to carry. I guess it is this love of mine for boobs that makes it so easy to be attracted to a woman with good-looking breasts.” 

You can sure make your breasts look a lot better by improving your dress sense. As we promised earlier, we will be putting up an article on how to kill with your outfits sooner or later. 

3. A Thin Frame

For some guys, a thin frame is what does it. You have to note, however, that this is not the standard. Whilst some will go for a woman who has a thin build, quite a lot feel more attracted to a woman who has a thicker build.

When asked why the men in our survey thought thin women were more likable, they had no concrete reasons. That is to say, they themselves do not even know why they like this physical feature in women. 

This goes to show that this preference is more a gut feeling and not the standard.

4. A Bigger Build

Up to 25 percent of the men we asked about the physical features they like in women in our small survey agreed that they liked women who had a much bigger build. While some loved women who were just thick, others thought women who weighed much were better. 

With this category of men, the preference seemed to stem from sexual desire. These men thought the women to be very sexually desirable. This raises a very important question: Are thick women sexier than their thinner counterparts? 

It is possible that they are. We hope to explore this in detail soon.

5. Clear Skin

A lot of the men on our survey stressed this much. They all loved women who had clear skins. That is to say, skin that had little to no scars. 

Lamuel said: “I dislike scars. And I do not like to see rough parts of a skin. I love it more than anything when a woman’s skin is as smooth as a child.”

While this can be considered some form of ‘expecting too much,’ it is true that we ought to take care of our skin. We have to strive to get the best skin care products for ourselves.

You don’t have to be a sucker for skincare. You just have to be willing to take care of your skin. Do not step out into the sun without your sunscreen. Do not itch your skin too vigorously. If you have allergies, be sure to talk to your doctor about them.

6. Straight Legs

Weirdly, guys like it when women have straight legs. This means there should not be a ‘bow’ or a slant. It is just a preference, anyway. You don’t have to feel bad about it if you do not have ‘straight’ legs.

7. Tatooless Skin

With men who had no tattoos, there was a unanimous vote that it was physically preferred if a woman had no tattoos. And with men who had tattoos, no matter how little, 40 percent agreed that tattoos did not look so great on women, especially when these tattoos covered a large area. 

Lanre said: “A tattoo of a rose is fine as long as it is small. But a large tattoo about something that feels too masculine is such a huge no for me. I cannot explain. Not to judge or anything.”

Note: You have to note that these things guys like about women do not spell judgment but instead show preference. That one prefers something over the other does not mean the other thing is worth less.

8. Dimples

Most men deeply love it when a woman has dimples. I believe this has to do with two things: the rarity of dimples and the fact that dimples can go a long way to beautify someone’s smile. 

Kakim tells us: “I like it so much. I cannot even explain why. I have liked dimples since I was a child, and I may never stop liking dimples. 

9. Well Kept Hair

Whether long or short, men love it much when a woman’s hair is well-kept. 

As long as you can keep your hair well and rock all the styles you make with extraordinary confidence, just about any guy is going to think your hair to be something one has to admire.

When we put up an article about how you can dress to kill, we will surely tell you about rocking your hair.

10. Bright Smiles

This is one of the big things guys like physically in a woman—her smile. 

If a guy has ever told you that you look very beautiful when you smile, there is a very big chance he meant it.


You look good. You can look better.
