Skin, skin and more skin. Whether it’s on the red carpet or just walking down the street, women are popping out all over. So, before you leave the house look into your mirror and ask yourself – how much is too much, especially if you are forty and beyond.
If your clothes are too revealing, you are most likely sending out the dreaded “desperate vibe”. But, on the other hand, if you’re too buttoned up and drab you just fade into the woodwork and don’t get noticed at all.
So how do you know what’s right for you? How about this. Wear an outfit that reveals 40 percent of your skin and you will get just the right amount of attention.
To arrive at this 40 percent benchmark Leeds University psychologist Colin Hendrie sent four female researchers to one of their city’s biggest nightclubs. They documented on video what the women were wearing and how many times they were approached by the men.
Seventy hours of recordings later it was revealed that women who showed off 40 percent of their skin were asked to dance twice as much as women who were covered up or too exposed.
I have always said, ‘bling and cleavage is not the way to attract the man of your dreams’. Now research is confirming it.
