Because women know that men like to look at curvy shapes, so they choose 
clothing to emphasize that.

Men choose clothing to show off an athletic build, or wealth, or since 
women aren't all that visually focused, we just don't care what we look 
like. Somehow women seem to find a three day scruffy beard, uncombed 
hair and a band T-shirt from 25 years ago looks good enough.

It certainly won't, since women I personally know have had AT LEAST 20 
years to choose clothes with pockets.

I constantly hear complaining but none of you women ever DO anything 
about it. It clearly isn't very important.
