eyes front, mister!

Here’s a shocker: the majority of men spend the majority of their time staring at a woman’s tits rather than her face. Raise your hand if this is a news flash for you.

Researchers found that virtually half – 47 per cent – of men first glance at a woman’s chest. A third of the so-called ‘first fixations’ are on the waist and hips, while fewer than 20 per cent look at the face.

Not only are breasts often the first thing men look at, they also glance at them for longer than any other body part, the experts discovered.

It’s thought that the reason might be evolutionary, as women with larger chests and slim waists – such as opera singer Katherine Jenkins – have higher levels of the female hormone oestrogen, indicating greater fertility.

I was one of those lucky (read: extremely unfortunate) girls who started to bloom at a very young age and it took a long time to stop blooming in the chest area. One of the downfalls of living my life as a 42-DDD cup is that I very rarely have an eye-to-eye conversation with a man. While I feel slightly better knowing that it really might not be completely their fault — that nature plays a huge part of it — it would still be nice to be seen by men as more than just a great pair of tits every now and then.
