Abstract

Evolutionary psychological theories have been used to explain judgments of attractiveness of a range of human morphological traits, typically in isolation of other traits. The aim of this section is not to provide a comprehensive account of all such application of evolutionary psychological theories but rather to provide several key examples, beginning with what is perhaps the most widely cited of such theories: the waist-to-hip ratio hypothesis of women’s body attractiveness.
