Considering the American preoccupation with breast size, it's not at all unusual for people, both men and women, to wonder -- what's the perfect breast size? Is there such a thing?
Even though our fascination with breasts is mostly a product of our culture (read Why do men like big breasts? for a discussion), it's also a product of evolution. Read on to learn more.
Yes and no. Of course, both men and women have different likes and dislikes when it comes to breast size. That is of course a matter of taste. No group of people will agree on a perfect breast size.
This has a great deal to do with the way people are raised and what they are taught, during childhood, is attractive.

Surveys have discovered that there is a way to gauge the attractiveness of a woman's physical proportions, and define the semi-mythical perfect breast size.
Here's how it works: you're trying to determine your WHR, or waist to hip ratio. Measure your waist and hips. Now divide your waist measurement by your hips measurement. The magic number here is .70 -- and if your bust measurement matches your waist measurement or is a little under, congratulations -- you're biologically perfect. If your bust is over or under your waist measurement, then you, like 99% of the rest of the world, aren't perfect.
On average, men like a C cup breast size. Maybe this is why the reported average breast size has increased in recent years from 34B to 36C…
