Do Men Stare at Your Breasts?

Researchers like to use the scientific method to test stereotypical behavior. The latest stereotype they want to prove? That men tend to stare at women's breasts. Did they prove it? Well, sort of.

In a new study, 47 percent of the men fixated first at a woman's chest upon seeing her. Another third of the male participants glanced first at the waist and the hips, while another 20 percent looked at a woman's face first.

Going about your daily research life, have you found that men look first at your chest before they look you in the face?

marcie23- I am also a DD and 6 feet tall, and yes, that's just where many people end up looking! Can't say that I blame them ;)

From a man's viewpoint: I know I "look" but I would never "stare." One is observing - and I'm just wired that way- while the other is just plain rude, tacky, etc. The whole point is not to do something that would make another person uncomfortable. But neither would I try to pretend they didn't exist! One thing I hate to see is when someone says something like she is "only an A-cup," when even "smaller" breasts are something a man appreciates. Don't put yourselves down, and if you think men aren't looking at your A's, well, its just because I'm being discreet!

Well, they do, which is weird. I wear a C cup but I don't think my boobs are that 'big.' And I rarely wore any outfit with plunging neckline. So I don't know what's the deal, I think men just have a habit of looking at your boobs, maybe it's hardwired to their brains or something.

Yes, it happens to me quite a bit. Once, in a club, I actually said to a man "They don't talk, I'm up here". Tacky guy.

Ugh, yes. I developed really early and am kind of disproportionately larger compared to the rest of mybody. I have been stared at since I was about 14. It's SO uncomfortable and I hate it. *shiver*

Nope, and that's just another benefit to having small breasts :-)

I have an A cup. It's usually the last thing guys notice.

At 5'8" with a well defined waist, I have 34 DD (and still growing) boobs. let me tell you. I've caught coworkers, creepers, cute guys, hots guys, women, creeper women, even gay guys. They just STARE. I make a point of staring right at them with a face that says "you thought you could get away with that?" and say when they finally regain eye contact "Excuse me. I saw that. Don't do it again" (Which is hard for a non confrontational 20 year old)

Nah, they're nothing special, and I make it a point not to draw attention to my chest. I check attractive women out too, I can't blame the guys.

i was a d in high school, i'm a double d now and 6 feet tall, so people generally land at my boobs, but for the most part they try to look up and look me in the eye :). autumns, don't hide, it's your body be proud of it!

Yeah, I'm a D cup. It's kind of a given that people will look, so I hide under hoodies.

Yes. I get the up and down scan, too. The irony is that get these from women, too. It's weird.

I agree with Tart and Soul. Some of these studies are way too obvious and don't really count as studies or findings. Any girl with bigger than average breasts will be looked at breast first by straight men. Men tend to notice the obvious first.
