Men Prefer Larger Breasts on Women than They Prefer on Themselves

Posted on May 19, 2011 Breast Augmentation, Plastic Surgery

According to a study published in the journal Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in February, men are more likely to think large-breasted women are attractive. The study was focused on attempting to determine the standards men and women had for attractiveness of the female body. To determine the difference, “high-quality” pictures were shown to 34,000 men and women. These pictures were varied according to a number of key parameters, such as weight, hip width, waist width, bust size, and leg length. They found a number of parameters for which there was significant differences. In general, women though they were more attractive with wider hips, narrower waist, and longer legs. On the other hand, 40% of men preferred a woman with a large breast size, whereas only 25% of women thought a large breast size was ideal. This does not mean that women seek breast augmentation to increase their attractiveness to men. Some women do, especially those whose profession depends on attractiveness, such as actresses, dancers, and waitresses. But the number of women getting breast augmentation is far less than one quarter. A significant minority of women may feel that their breasts are too small to be attractive to themselves and seek breast implants to improve their self-attractiveness. Breast augmentation is a procedure you should undertake only for yourself. If you would like to learn more about your breast augmentation options, please contact Dr. David A. Bottger to schedule a consultation at his Philadelphia office.
