Researchers say Thai women have some of the smallest breasts in the world

A cross section of men from across the globe will never leave Thailand because they are in love with a Thai woman — but it’s probably not because of her breast size. A recent study said they have some of the smallest breasts in the world.

Oh no, you didn’t.

Thai women ranked 101st, out of 108 countries in the study. This means that they have some of the smallest breasts in the world, according to research published in The Journal of Female Health Sciences.

The research measured the natural breast size of about 340,000 women, between the ages of 28 and 30-years-old, from around the world. It revealed that there is considerable variation in the breast tissue volume of women, depending on their country of birth.

For Thailand, the researchers found that the average cup size is even smaller than a standard ‘A’ cup, based on the measurements of 11,849 Thai women.

“The smallest average breast volumes [belong to] women born in Africa and Asia, particularly in the East Asian countries. The cup size ‘A,’ or even smaller, was found to be the average cup size in many of the countries in these regions,” the research said.

Globally, Caucasian women born in the U.S. have the largest breasts in the world, with an average size that is larger than an ‘F,’ while the Philippines, the country that dominates world beauty pageants, was surprisingly ranked at 108 and so, according to the research, Filipinas have the the smallest breasts in the world (of the countries included in the study).

To add insult to injury, the researchers felt it necessary to mention that most of the women in Asian countries have “flat” breast shapes.

Yeah, we get it.

** We are not certain about some of the findings of this study. And that’s not just because we consider ourselves curvy.
