Decent exposure

Finally, an answer to one of the world's most pressing questions:

How much skin is too much skin?

One study says women should woo men by showing 40 percent of their skin. Here's a summary:

For the purposes of the study, each arm accounts for 10 per cent, each leg for 15 per cent and the torso for 50 per cent.

The head, hands and feet are not included in the calculation.

Suitable outfits might include a sleeveless dress that skims the thighs.

But showing off any more flesh than this could be counterproductive.

I still don't really understand the mathematical process, but I think it's fair to conclude you shouldn't party downtown wearing only a bra and underwear.

Conversely, it's also probably not a smart idea to hit the clubs with your entire body wrapped in gauze.

Ladies: How often do you follow the 40 percent rule?
