People with thick thighs and curvy hips may live longer than those with bigger bellies, according to a study published in the British Medical Journal this week.

The studies suggested that fat stored around the mid-section is associated with a much higher risk of early mortality from any cause, while people who have full-figured thighs and hips have a lesser risk of early death. The findings remained consistent despite overall body fat.

All of the studies reportedly found that a 3.94-inch increment increase in waist circumference “was associated with an 11% higher risk of all-cause mortality.”

Hip and thigh circumference, meanwhile, was deemed to be less of a risk factor in the cause of early death.
