That's possible and would complicate any study of marriage chances and breast size.
I don't really mind breast size all that much, as long as their chest is bigger than mine is all I ask. I go more for the eyes.
Concise you are. People mate assortatively, on personality and physical characteristics, such that a man with a big chest is more likely to have a wife with large breasts. Which parts a man favors is more a matter of fantasizing, as in mate selection, judgments of parts are mainly used to rule people out.
Thinman was referring to waist-hip ratio (WHR), which interacts with breast size, weight, and other factors to determine body attractiveness, as this paper describes.
It's easy enough to demonstrate the importance of appearance in general (you are your appearance), but the importance of this subject in particular relates to fit issues and even social issues. What if women with A-cup breasts (the prime seekers of breast implants, by the way) are being selected against and, for example, they are less prone to obesity and quieter and more sensitive than other women?
