How do you measure up?
When it comes to boobs, is there really a best boob size? Which ones really are the best? It’s kind of hard to say since everyone has different tastes.
Traditionally, we are all taught through the media that the bigger, the better. But before you run off to make an appointment at the plastic surgeon’s office, you may want to know what this study had to say.
To put an end to the controversy over breast size, this study polled 1,000 Europeans and 1,000 Americans to find out what the ideal breast size was according to both men and women.
After finding out their preferences, the answers were then compared to the actual breast sizes of the women living in those countries. Researchers wanted to find out if all of the money spent on push-up bras and breast implants was actually necessary.
According to the study, nearly 54 percent of men and more than 60 percent of women preferred breasts that were of an average size. It was determined that 35 percent of men and 31 percent of women thought that larger breasts were better, while 11 percent of men and 9 percent of women thought that a smaller breast size was more ideal.
Did you read those stats, ladies? There is hope for all of the small-chested women out there!
More women seemed to prefer an average breast size over a larger one because of back problems, bra expenses, and challenges that are associated with having large breasts.
Getting even more specific, researchers asked men and women to divulge which cup size they thought was best. According to the study, over half of the women polled thought that a C cup was ideal while 26 percent thought that a B cup was best and 2 percent of women thought that an A cup was better.
Men also agreed that a C cup was ideal; however, more men than women said that they like D and DD cups. Throughout Europe, in countries such as Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, U.K, and Austria, people agreed that a C cup was perfect.
When looking at statistics from the International Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, countries like Germany, France, and Italy had the highest number of breast augmentations in 2015, followed by the U.S. All of these countries said that they preferred women with C cup breasts. In places like Poland and Hungry, a B cup was preferred.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that preference and reality always measure up as most European countries preferred a C cup while the average size was a B cup.
In many of the countries surveyed, it turned out that people considered the best boob size to be larger than what average woman actually had. However, there were countries like Poland and Romania who preferred breast sizes that were one cup smaller than the average.
Overall, when asked, most women across the board were satisfied with their breast size.
