Turns out brains, not bust size, matter more to men!
This is one thing that most ladies will definitely frown at.
A leading scientist has claimed that men value intelligence over bust size when they are searching for a future wife.
Evolutionary biologist Professor David Bainbridge said brains suggest a woman is likely to be a responsible mother.
The Cambridge academic also said it indicated that the woman was brought up by intelligent parents and had been well looked after in childhood.
Other supposed attractive female features such as long legs don’t matter to men either, according to Professor Bainbridge.
He said men only prize symmetrical features because it suggests a potential partner is young, healthy and has stable genes.
As a result he said that men are not even interested in the size of a woman’s breasts – because they are rarely symmetrical.
And with legs, the most important factor is that they are straight because unevenness suggests a developmental illness, such as rickets.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Professor Bainbridge told the Hay literary festival in Hay-on-Wye: ‘Breast size doesn’t matter. Large breasts are more likely to be asymmetric and men are more attracted to symmetry.
‘And they look older more quickly, and men value youth. And men are not looking for long legs. Straight legs are a sign of genetic health, so that is something that is more attractive, but surveys have shown most men prefer regular length.’
He added: ‘The main thing that men are looking for is intelligence. Surveys have shown time and time again that this is the first thing that men look for. It shows that she will be able to look after his children and that her parents were probably intelligent, suggesting that she was brought up well.’
