The Breast Chronicles
Reshaping breasts on the net.
Ever wonder how Kate Groombridge gets her Godgiven 34B breasts to look so, well, D-elightful? She relies on the physical and psychological support of a padded bra
. Yes, gentlemen, that wondrous wonder effect is achieved through padding. The truth is out. The foam has been exposed!
Apparently, Playboy used to hold to a rule that Playmates were not allowed to have undergone plastic surgery, facial, boobage or otherwise. It seems they've tossed out they own rules after a couple of very popular playmates were found to have gone under the knife. Thanks to that lovely chap CyberPlainsDrifter for his input on this matter. It's odd that SO much of the feedback I've had (and read in articles etc.) suggests that men loathe implants, but the fact remains that most (of the more well-endowed) playmates - especially the more popular ones and playmates of the year - are surgically enhanced. It's a mystery to me why, considering all I've heard, though!
In support of National Cleavage Day, The Sun
tabloid is holding its third annual Best Cleavage
competion and encouraging well-endowed women everywhere to share their gifts
with the world-at-large.
I still love Shirley of Hollywood lingerie, even if they don't cater for large busts on a slim body with their bras, and use implanted models for other garments. This lace two-piece set
and this cami-top and thong
are now on my wishlist!
Rarr - let's start a campaign to reaffirm the value of natural
big breasts! I wonder if I can get an online petition somewhere or some similar whatnot....
You know, it really gets to me how the only bodies considered beautiful are those with big, unnaturally perky breasts. I mean, all these implants are devaluing my own natural assets. And as a result I probably won't be wanted for Playboy etc. - the next girl with her skinny body and soaring-skywards tupperware tits will get the centrefold (and all the fame, fortune and glamour that goes with it) instead. It's quite distressing.
Playboy playmate Karen McDougal supports breast cancer awareness
. She has implants herself, but doesn't think that is relevant.
A new photographic collection by Kava, a 22-year-old female artist, tries to present the breast visually in much the same way as I try to do textually on this site. "I'm giving a personality to the breast," she says. "It's not about the woman anymore, or the idealized beauty of the breast. I'm just trying to show them honestly". Breasts In Show
A California artist is collecting brassieres to use in constructing a giant Bra Ball, "a politically designed project, to convey how America is body and breast obsessed". Unfortunately she's hit problems over who had the original idea: Cross-Your-Heart Doublecross
(towards the bottom of the page).
Big Breasts: a bum deal?
The short answer of course is "yes", but the long answer is "they don't have to be"...
Bigger, rounder, firmer, fuller, higher: March 30th is National Cleavage Day. Last year well-endowed British women celebrated by playing up their natural assets in support of the first annual Double-D-Day
. Some said it was the breast day of the year! But, in these oh-so politically correct times, one buxum babe
was carpeted for wearing a low-cut top showing of her 32D curves after some of her presumably less well endowed female colleagues complained.
Looks like the lad mags' favourite 32Es are going stateside. According to the Hollywood Reporter
: "British celebrity and television personality Kelly Brook is crossing the pond with the WB Network comedy pilot The (Mis)adventures of Fiona Plum
, from Studios USA. Brook will play the lead, Fiona Plum, a young, spoiled British witch banished by her father to Seattle to work as a nanny for a typical American family until she learns proper behavior and humility. In addition, he limits her powers to three spells a day. Fiona Plum
, executive produced by Jonathan Prince and Jill Murray, is one of the two coming-of-age-witch comedy pilots the WB has ordered in hopes to find a companion for Sabrina, the Teenage Witch
. The other pilot is a Sabrina
spinoff, Witchright Hall
apparently you're only perfect if you conform to narrow physical requirements. Comes with a guarantee too - but what I want to know is this: If these herbal, so-called 'natural' methods are so effective then how come so many thousands of women still go under the knife every year?
One of the best breast-related articles I've come across recently is Stop Using Breast Cancer As A Weapon
by Carrie Burrows. It's concise and easy to read, and I agree wholeheartedly with the point. Breast cancer is almost marketed, simply because it is to to with breasts - and therefore womanhood in the eyes of our man-oriented society. It's seen as a very dark disease, which strips us of our femininity. Just read the article.
Men and women have different perspectives on the Academy Awards. Women watch for the glitz, the glamour, the gowns, the jewels, the entertainment, the winners and losers, the drama. Men watch for just two reasons: Cleavage
. Over the past several years, cleavage has become an all-out -- at least in some cases -- celebrity competition. Minnie Driver's dark plunging necklines and J. Lo's barely there poison green number are destined to become more famous than their movie roles! Anyway. Perhaps the time has come to make Best Cleavage a standard Oscar category. It would be great television: Full-contact decolletage. Excited winners. Rambling speeches. And the envelope, please.
Rar, your favourite breast owner really has
got into FHM - admittedly not in pictorial form, but hey it's a start! Charlotte's first appearance in FHM
(be patient, it's a pretty big image). And what with the modelling, perhaps I'll be seen again... Obviously you'll be the first to know ;-)
Must get hold of a copy of this month's FHM
- it's got a great big article entirely devoted to breasts. Of course it will be from the chauvanist male perspective, but still...
Celebrate National Cleavage Day with Gossard
. Gossard (in association with the Sun newspaper, if I remember correctly) introduced National Cleavage Day in March 2000 to celebrate the growth in the British bra cup from 34B to 36C and encourage women to be proud of their assets. Fill in their online survey
to be entered into a free prize draw to win Gossard lingerie.
"Why do almost all Playboy models have fake boobies? They're not nearly as nice as real ones - if I wanted to suck on plastic I'd get myself a dummy [pacifier to Americans]" --Chris
Remember last year's Oscar's 2000. There were boobs everywhere. The cameras zoomed in on a whole lotta' cleavage. Heather Graham
revealed, "I'm quite flat-chested. Of course, on screen I wear a push-up bra with jello things in them which we call in the industry 'chicken cutlets'." With these not-so-secret weapons
she seemed like a shoe-in for Best Cleavage of the evening until Winona Ryder
took the stage in a skin-tight black getup that pushed her breasts up in the most scientifically effective manner. Cate Blanchett, Uma Thurman and Angelina Jolie, had the nerve to appear in high-cut dresses causing them to be immediately disqualified from the Best Cleavage competition. Soon, it was Cleavage City again, as Vanessa Williams
strolled out. Vanessa's breasts were at that moment in pregnancy where everything is just so round and beautiful that they knocked Winona Ryder out of the competition (talk about Golden Globes!). Salma Hayek
appeared onstage wearing a low-cut, white satiny outfit, and Faith Hill
went for full-on cleavage glamour in a golden, glitzy number.
Say bye-bye to the Baywatch Babes. And now that "Baywatch"
is jiggling off into the sunset, cosmetic surgeons
reveal that the TV show revolutionized the industry. "We were blessed with Baywatch," plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Grossman said. "It is the most vivid form of advertising. It's like an hourlong plastic-surgery commercial." When the show was at its height, prospective patients would bring in pictures of Pamela Anderson and ask to be lifted, sculpted and lipo-sucked to perfection, Grossman recalled. "Baywatch may have slipped out of the public eye in recent years. Now people are looking at Britney and others stars," the doctor said. "But Baywatch and Pam Anderson brought our business to a whole new level."
