Your not-that-chiseled-chested husband or boyfriend is going to love this trend. Apparently the “dad bod” is a new thing. There’s mom jeans and now there’s Dad Bod!
The term is defined in New York Time‘s The Cut blog as “physique characterized by undefined muscles beneath a light layer of flab, usually topped off with a beer belly.”
It’s that guy who goes to the gym regularly but still loves to drink beer and eat pizza on the weekend.
When I think of a pop culture representation of the dad bod I think of Adam Sandler or the character Carrie Bradshaw‘s love interest in Sex and the City Aden.
There’s research behind it too. Last year, a survey found that 72% of British women prefer a man with a little love handle over a man with rock hard body.
Who could imagine!
