Woohoo! We’re number 2!
Canadian women have the second biggest boobs in the world.
This is according to a study in which researchers analyzed which nations have the women with the largest and smallest breasts. According to the Telegraph, they looked at data from nearly 400,000 women born in 108 countries, comparing the mean volume and cup size in each nation, and found major differences depending on place of birth.
Who has the biggest breasts? Women of the United States of course. Filipino women were found to have the smallest.
The U.S. appears on the list twice, in first place and third with the caveat “non Caucasian.” Canada comes in second. Ireland, and Poland come in forth and fifth to make up the top five.
If you’re thinking, like I did, that America must have come in first because so many American women are getting implants, you’d be wrong. Women with breast implants were excluded from the study, along with pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Why do we need a study on this?
“Increasing knowledge of the breast size variation of women from different countries is needed as a guideline for example for the product development and targeting of marketing actions of clothing industry and cosmetic surgery providers,” researchers wrote in the study published in The Journal of Female Health Sciences.
“The study analysis revealed that there is a considerable variation in the breast tissue volume… of women depending on their country of birth.
“For example women born in the US have by far larger breasts than women in any other country, while women born in Africa and Asia, particularly in the East Asian countries, have the smallest breast volumes….
“The analysis of the results also showed that the correlation between a woman’s body weight and the size of her breasts is quite different from one country to another.
“A typical woman born in the US or Canada has a very large breast volume regardless of her body weight.”
