No chin shape is sexier than another

In case you were worrying about this, the shape of your chin may not be a big factor in how attractive you are to other people. That’s the conclusion of a new study published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Previous studies on attractive facial features had suggested that a broad chin is the most becoming shape for males, and a narrow chin is the most attractive one for women. But new research theorized that if one particular chin shape for men and one for women was indeed considered the most universally attractive, then chin shape should not differ as much as it does around the world.

The researchers examined 180 male and female chin bones from all over and found a wide variation in shape. They concluded that if humans do have a preference for chin shape, that preference may differ from culture to culture, or the preference is not strong enough to significantly affect the choice of a mate.
