The Scotsman tells us that
a team of researchers from Edinburgh's Heriot-Watt University are launching what is believed to be the world's first scientific study to answer the often asked question of how clothing can affect the appearance of the female rear.Yeah right. A bunch of scientists staring at female posteriors all day and getting funded to do so. We should be so lucky. Ig Nobel, anyone?
The team, from the university's School of Textiles and Design, based in Galashiels, believe the study could have major implications for retailers.
four models had been chosen to provide as representative as possible a sample of female rears.There are only four?
