Jamie Reidy logically explains why a man cannot be criticized for incorrectly assessing a woman’s weight.
This is clearly the result of improvements in brassiere technology. I blame Victoria’s Secret. Thanks to cartoon cleavage on every gal, guys have no clue how large a woman’s breasts truly are, which throws off weight estimates. What’s she, like, a 38-DD? That must be an extra, y’know, fifteen pounds, easy.
And then there are high heels to factor into the equation! For example, Kim Kardashian is 5′ 2.5″, but how would a guy know that when she always sports mad heels on her feet? (No comment on whether men actually know KK has feet.) So, if we can’t correctly judge a woman’s height, of course we will then overestimate her weight.
But the study shows that men see ourselves as lighter than we really are. So, why is that?
Simple. We think we still look like we did in high school. Which may explain why we still think like we did in high school…
Any reasons I missed for the discrepancy between the sexes and their weight views?
