Sex and relationships, Women feel sexiest at 28

Although they may feel most sexy at 28, a woman’s confidence doesn't peak until she is 32 - with supportive friends and family acting as the biggest boost to their self-belief.

The findings come from a new study which focused on British women’s attitudes towards being female, a major newspaper reported.

Researchers found that most women are happy with the shape of their bum and boobs and the size of their hips and waist.

In fact, three quarters of British women said they would not change their body shape if they were given the opportunity.

The body part women are most proud of is their eyes, with 23 percent feeling that they are their best physical attribute.

Twenty percent opted for their breast, with brains coming in third (13 per cent).

When asked which part of themselves they would change if they had to, 41 percent of women said they’d like to have longer, slimmer legs.

And the aspects of womanhood which they enjoyed the most were getting dressed up, wearing heels and doing their hair and make-up.

The study of 2,000 women found the typical woman considers herself to have four good friends by 32.

A fifth of those surveyed wished they could be more confident around men while the biggest reason for broken confidence was being dumped by a partner.

And it seems self-confidence is harder to build than body confidence, as half wish they could stop worrying so much about their lives.

When asked which females they found inspiring, most British women chose Pippa’s older sister Kate Middleton; the Duchess of Cambridge (19 percent).

Kate, 30, was closely followed by historic nurse Florence Nightingale (17 percent) and Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe (15 per cent).
