In June, marriage counseling platform "Onet" carried out an online survey to find out what kind of female figure bachelors like in Japan. They were also asked to select a female celebrity with the best figure according to their taste. Onet has now released the results.

The survey was conducted after a recent article of a very popular women's magazine, which claimed that somewhat chubby women are more popular with men than women with a slim body these days. They even defined such a body figure as "puniko" (lit. "squishy girl") with exact numbers for how much you should weigh depending on your height. A bit too much weight and you are already "chubby" instead of "puniko". Said magazine has even begun scouting "puniko" girls for their fashion and beauty pictorials.

A total of 665 bachelors participated in the Onet survey and were categorized according to their age: 20~24 years old (166 men), 25~29 years old (167 men), 30~34 years old (166 men), and 35~39 years old (166 men). The results definitely show that an increasing number of men prefer women who are "slightly chubby" (more than 10% of all bachelors). However, most men still favor a "normal" figure, followed by "somewhat slender". Their preferences also change depending on whether they are on the lookout for a girlfriend or a possible marriage partner and depending on their own figure.

Let's take a look at the ranking of the female celebrities instead of going further into the detail. It also gives you a nice idea about what kind of female figure those bachelors prefer.

If any of those people are "chubby," I must be considered a whale in Japan.

Nobody said they are. The chubby talk was just the reason why Onet conducted the survey.

@HPriest Oh. I assumed that you meant, based on the polls, chubbier women were preferred.

@rikatan the celebrity ranking was just a part of the survey. They first asked what figure they prefer. Later they let them pick a celebrity. Also, I just said that the number is increasing, not that it's the most preferred figure. ^^ Chubbier girls are at around 10%, "normal" girls are at 40%, I think (too lazy to check the pdf again now)

I absolutely agree with the results because I know that Fukada Kyoko has an amazing body that most men want a girl to have.  And if I will soon get a chance to have a Japanese girlfriend, i'm instantly choosing Fukada right away because she's the prettiest Japanese female model around without a single doubt.  I'd absolutely love to date her right away if she asks me pretty quickly in either her sexy Japanese or slowly in English
