A part of what constitutes a physically attractive woman is no doubt her body. And what usually defines a sexy woman are her curves.
But, unfortunately, there are many women who are walking around with insecurities about the right curves. Am I curvy enough? Are my curves in the right place? And the list continues.
Adding to a woman's curve-conscious dilemma is the apparent love affair men have for proportionately curved women, and the fact that society celebrates that perfect shape.
Designers who specialise in body enhancers have been catering more and more to the curve-challenged woman.
A flat derriere, for example, can be lifted immediately and narrow hips can now easily be widened with padded underwear adding more curves and voluptuousness.
Like miracle growers, these underwear come with silicone and foam pads. They can be bought as built-in pads or removables. These removables can be inserted in pocket panties made specifically for them.
So with the various shape enhancers available for resculpting the bod, are men being reeled in by deception? Do they really care if what they are seeing is authentic or tweeked?
What is a man's take on these items? Flair did some canvassing.
What the men had to say ...
I prefer women who work with what they have. They can wear clothes that suit their shape.
I don't have a problem with it just because it probably makes them happy. But it can also be misleading for a guy. For me, if that happens I would have to assess how big the gap is between the original and the addition.
You mad! I would not want that. It would almost be like I am tricked into buying fake goods.
I don't mind it. It makes them look extra sexy.
Instead of adding things to your body, why not wear something to complement it? It would almost be like me putting something in my pants to make my penis appear larger.
I don't think I would like it. First impression for me is what counts. I am judging her based on her body, so if I find out that she does not have that nice sexy bottom, that is a turn off.
It can be misleading for someone who likes a nice plump shape. But I don't really see anything wrong, especially if she can make up with her personality. It is really about what they want to do to enhance their beauty.
