What does armpit reveal about women?

The human body itself has always been something mysterious, attracting scientists to explore it more. Recently, scientists have revealed more things about women’s armpit.

There are thousands of weird studies carried out every year, aiming to discover more things about the human body. However, this one might be among the strangest study: when women smell most attractive. Armpit has always been the thing that we try to avoid, as much as possible, because we think that it is confused to have a wet or smell arm.

This study is carried out on 57 men, asking them to smell the armpits of 28 women. The goal is to find out how attractive a man finds a woman’s body odour. Before all of these 20 women go dousing themselves in deodorant, researchers revealed that smelly armpits actually can act as a cue to fertility. According to the study, the way a man finds a woman attractive is linked directly to her level of reproductive hormones. And most of the participant men have the same idea about which woman smells most attractive.

Swiss researchers from the University of Bern always found that a woman’s level of oestradiol has a direct relationship with her attractiveness while the level of progesterone has an inverse relationship with her attractiveness.  Researchers collected all odours at peak fertility to control for menstrual cycle effects on body odour attractiveness. And according to them, this is when women are most attractive.

From an evolutionary point of view, the attractiveness of women is one of necessary cues to ideal qualities that men seek for in their mates. Among which, a high level of oestradiol is an ideal feature that most men want to see in their mates. This is because this hormone is directly related to the reproductive potential of women.

Besides, it can be seen from the study that those most attractive odours came from women who were most fertile at that moment, even though all the samples came from women who have the fertile ability.

More than just the natural feature, armpit now can tell you about the attractiveness of a woman.
