Could a T-shirt make men sexier?Posted on: June 25, 2013 12:23:04
Some fashion-conscious men can spend a considerable amount of time making sure they look their absolute best before heading out the door on a first date.
From trimming their facial hair to preening their eyebrows and making sure their face looks as silky smooth as possible, preparing for a night out with a prospective new partner can take more than an hour for some guys - and this is before choosing an outfit.
The increasing acceptance of metrosexual males, who take as much pride in their appearance as women, means it is no longer anything to be ashamed of if you want to take that little bit more time to ensure you look your best.
However, some fashion-conscious blokes could be surprised to know that all this could be unnecessary and girls actually find them more attractive when they sport a simple white T-shirt.
Research carried out by scientists at Nottingham Trent University has suggested that sporting the no-frills garment with a large black letter T printed on the front can make a man up to 12 per cent more attractive.
Those conducted the study said the T-shirt created an illusion that made the shoulders appear broader and slimmed the waste - thus producing a more V-shaped body - which is a sign of masculinity.
The findings could be good news for males who are not particularly in shape, as chubbier participants gained the best results from the garment, compared with their more muscly counterparts.
It was found that a waist-to-chest ratio (WTR) of between 0.7 and 0.8, where the shoulders are about 20 per cent broader than the hips, is seen as the ideal.
Commenting on the findings, Dr Andrew Dunn - a psychologist from Nottingham Trent University - said: "The wider barred ‘T’ seems to emphasise the upper chest when upright, which accentuates men’s ‘optimum’ shape. The opposite happens when inverted.
"WCR is one of just a number of body measures that humans use to judge attractiveness and health."
