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.
