It's not just about looking good for Women
Now for the first time, scientists have tested this assumption and found that these 'ornaments' are in fact linked to natural selection. Females are selecting mates with longer, more aerodynamic tails, rather than on the basis of attractive, but meaningless ornaments.

Ah, it's proof of what we've always suspected: women are just after a good long piece of tail.
Aha! Size DOES Matter!
We men knew this all along, despite protestations of women. But we do appreciate you women being polite about it. Especially those of us with 'modest' endowments, who try to make up for it in other ways.

Peacocks tails are not more aerodynamic at their current sizes so there's still some room left for ornamentation.

With peacocks it's to prove that they don't NEED to be aerodynamic in order to run away from predators. Rather like well endowed men.

All right. But these Just So stories can get a little so so.
Where does ability in getting away from predators end and symbol of 'ability in getting away from predators' begin? Computers have better demarcations between refs and their derefs.
