And apparently researchers from New York University found 'moderately sized breasts' with greater volume in the top half earned top scores compared to other breasts.
To gather the data, participants looked at images of 25 women's breasts. Not bad work if you can get it, right?
The women in the photos, who had an average age of 47, had sought aesthetic or reconstructive breast surgery between 2009 and 2019.
A survey group of 1,021 participants (52% were women) were presented two-dimensional photographs and three-dimensional imaging of the breast samples and asked to assess overall "breast attractiveness".
“In surveying a large and diverse population, moderately sized, projected breasts with upper pole fullness were found to be associated with increased ‘attractiveness’ scores,” the researchers wrote.
Upper pole fullness apparently refers to the volume of the breasts above the nipples.
Most of the breasts scored 2.5 out of 5, but the top five pairs had an average score of 3.1.
Researchers said these breasts had "more contour, upper pole fullness and perk".
The distance between the nipples was also narrower, the breasts were positioned closer together, and the distance from the nipple to the fold under the breast was shorter.
The top two images based on attractiveness were not of symmetrical breasts, however.
Researchers did note that the use of photos may have hindered participants’ ability to “fully appreciate” certain aspects of breasts.
They also said that the limited patient group does not fully represent the wide range of breast shapes and sizes.
