Flash 40 pc of skin to attract a man

Researchers at Leeds University have carried out the study and found that women should wear an outfit which reveals 40 per cent of her skin — this provides just the right amount of attention.

For their study, the researchers sent four female colleagues to one of the city’s biggest nightclubs. There, they stood on a balcony overlooking the dancefloor, and noted what the female clubbers were wearing and how many times they were approached by men.

All their observations were taped on dictaphones hidden in handbags. Seventy hours of recordings revealed that a man was much more likely to ask a woman to dance than vice versa, ‘The Daily Mail’ reported.

Specifically, women who showed off around 40 per cent of their skin were approached by
twice as many men as those who were more covered up, the study revealed. “Any more than 40 per cent and the signal changes from ‘allure’ to one indicating general availability and future infidelity. Show some leg, show some arm, but not any more than that,” lead researcher Colin Hendrie said.

However, some suitors fared better than others. Hendrie said: “The male couldn’t be too thin and he couldn’t be too fat. Most particularly, he couldn’t be too tall and he couldn’t be too short. He must be more than a head taller than the female.”
