“There’s a Divinity That Shapes Our Ends"

I and women all over the world are constantly worried about our appearance. Men are drawn into this worry. They are usually the ones who have to come up with a fast and non life threatening answer to the dreaded question, "Does this make my butt look big?". But soon the marvels of scientific study may make this time honored question passe. A study may soon begin in Scotland in which designs, colors, patterns and fabric types will be tested to see which affects the apparent size of a woman's butt.

Dr Macintyre, a lecturer in the School of Textiles and Design at the university, is an expert on medical textiles. Her PhD thesis involved an investigation into the use of pressure garments for treating scar tissue.

She believes that her latest research project could have important implications for designers and retailers. Female volunteers wearing hundreds of types of clothing will have their bottoms photographed for the research.

Participants will then be asked to look at the pictures to assess how big or small each model's backside appears. London Times

Take heart brave men, science may very well render that most dreaded question obsolete. Of course it all depends in the end if Dr. Macintyre's study receives a grant.

This is another issue I am not sure I understand but as you said I am drawn into.

I also think that the girl on Elmers' pic looked very proud beacause her appearance. ;-)

If the girl in the pic asked me if her outfit made her butt look big I would say no....the motorcycle does.
