>Anyway, a quick scope through our past will show that the fuller figure lady was favoured as a sign of good health and child bearing ability and is still a body type prefered even today.

That's more the exception than the rule in western society today. If you're a slim woman, you can catch a wealthy man.

There must be some unconscious algorithm that converts dress size into husband's salary amount. Poor men get the leftover fat wives. Very brutal, but that's nature.
