Yu and Shepard1 have reported a preference for heavy women with high waist-to-hip ratios (WHR) in a culturally isolated population in southeast Peru. Their findings are interesting because a preference for low WHR is widespread in westernized populations2,3,4,5. However, we disagree with their argument that cultural invariance is necessary for an adaptionist interpretation of WHR preference.
