Women aged 31 are at the peak of their beauty, according to a new study which breaks the age-old myth that teenagers are the most attractive.
Women in their late 20s and early 30s are considered more attractive than fresh-faced eighteen and nineteen year olds, researchers said.
The findings, from a survey of the opinions of over 2,000 men and women, found that beauty was as much rooted in personality as appearance, according to The Telegraph.
The average British woman is already married with children by her thirties. When asked when women are at their most attractive, more people picked 31 than any other age.
Beauty was defined as being confident by 70 per cent of respondents, having good looks by 67 per cent and being stylish by 47 per cent.
