Move over big boobs, there is a new sheriff in town. Though according to this study published in the journal Evolution of Human Behavior we just didn’t know the sheriff was here the entire time. According to the study, titled “Men’s preferences for women’s breast size and shape in four cultures” we have been living under the false pretense that in ranking the preference of men, the large breasts win out.
While studying this seemingly unnecessary topic (best job ever?) the 267 men surveyed across 4 nations were asked to rank a series of photos of women’s chests varying in size.
The results were that preference in size fluctuated wildly. In fact judging only by size, large breast came in second behind medium sized breasts. However the preference for firmness and shape stayed consistently at the top.
The evolutionary belief behind this preference is that there is a psychological link between breast firmness and overall fertility and health.
It makes if you think about it from the eyes of a cave man. While communication and health studies were not yet truly developed, the eyes don’t lie and shirts were not popular (what a time to be alive!)
