Research is underway into a new type of grow-your-own breast implants! The method is to insert a biodegradable ‘scaffold’ into the breast, around which the body then produces tissue. The scaffold then dissolves away, leaving normal breast tissue behind!

Davinia Taylor has large breasts – I’d guess a D- or DD-cup. Are they natural? I have no reason to doubt it. As an aside, she looks well rough on the cover of the current issue of Maxim! Jeri Ryan has great breasts – and the only implants in her are Borg!

One-time real-life Lara, Nell McAndrew says that her implants make her feel sexier, in an interview with FHM. Are there any busty celebrities who aren’t made of plastic?!

Bioform bra update: Having worn it a while now, I’m finding that the plastic undercups are digging into my ribcage. I’ll try adjusting the straps and see if that helps – it’s certainly the right back size, I’m definitely not a 36.

Feeling perky? Is it really just the nipple that men are interested in, or is it the whole deal? All I know is that when Adam and Ash see a pair of erect nipples, they turn to each other and ask “is it cold in here?”…

Do those suffering from small breast inferiority complex still perpetuate the myth that minimal bods screen out stupid men? The theory is: “Hey, listen, do you really want to be dating a guy who makes Hooters his regular hangout? I sure don’t. Give me a leg man any day.” But it’s a Boob Fact that that ALL guys will speak to a woman with big breasts (well, almost all). Having big breasts allows you to sort through the guys and pick out only the ones who interest you. You can just watch and evaluate, and ignore the uninteresting ones. It’s quite pleasant, even if you decide not to pick out anyone at all – like window-shopping. As to the cure for A-cup paranoia: Attitude. You can convey the message: “Look, God handed me these two little nectarines. They’re all I’ve got, so you’ll have to try to make the best of them.” Or: “Welcome to Nectarineland, you lucky man. If you play your cards right, I’ll let you remove my fire-engine red bra and lick honey from my nectarines while I squeal and shudder with delight.” We’re back to attitude. You should think in these terms: A man gets one chance to audition for your breasts. If they don’t like him, he’s history!

Oh, how our cups runneth over, says Guardian journalist Shane Watson. Society is breast-obsessed? surely not! I do have to disagree with her on one count though – she says that the bioform bra acts like a wonderbra in that it pushes the breasts together to improve cleavage. You owe this entry to my friend Mark, who saw the article in the paper and kept the page for me – isn’t that sweet of him?!

Well, my bioform bra arrived today! I quite like the shape it gives. It’s a bit strange having rigid plastic under my armpits, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it! The new-style boning means that looking head-on, my boobs have a nice shape – they don’t spill out at the sides, which has a slimming effect on my sillhouette from the front. It’s a bit pointy (from the side and looking down from my own point of view), but that’s no major issue. I haven’t exactly tried running around in it yet, but will report when I have!

I just ordered my bioform bra in a 34E from – I hope it’s worth the thirty quid! I still really want this Triumph Flaunt bra – I think it’s so pretty, but I should really limit myself to one lingerie purchase per month or I’ll get carried away!

I’m interested to see some before/after pics of Kelly Brook and Nell McAndrew, to go with the Jordan ones. I’ve been informed that Jenny McCarthy’s breasts are definitely not natural, but she had the operation when she was very young, so before/after shots are going to be unlikely.

With all the pressure on women to have pert, perky breasts (no matter what nature had in mind), Dr Grant Stevens has come up with the concept of a laser bra, consisting of laser-treated skin that becomes more taut and acts as an inbuilt bra, holding the breasts up and eliminating the need to wear a brassiere. However, with a price tag starting at $7,000 it’s a bit of an extreme option!

posted by Charlotte # 3:08 PM

I’ve actually managed to find some before and after pictures of twice-implanted page 3 model Jordan. It seems she’s stopped getting nekkid since having the surgery – she must be earning enough with her kit on, now that she has big boobs!

Yes, I forgot to mention the program shown on channel 4 on Tuesday evening – I think it was Better By Design. The episode, first broadcast three years ago, shows the invention of the bioform bra by design team Richard Seymour and Dick Powell. I saw the original broadcast, but I’m still sorry I missed the re-run. Claire Brialey shares her views on breasts, bras and the new bioform in The Girlie Show (you need to scroll down a fair way).

Why all the attention about Jemma Forrest’s breasts? Maybe it’s because she lied to her bank manager to get a loan and added two bags of soya bean oil to her chest and upgraded from 34A bras to a size 34D. That’s why my unprocessed peaches will be a valuable find for FHM – a genuine commodity in a market of manufactured melons.

The big-breasted know that strapless bras heed the laws of gravity. So Lauren Wedekind designed her own assortment of fab straps (sparkling satin, flirty fringe) that can be attached to many strapless bras and started her own company “I thought if bra straps were going to hang out, they might as well be pretty,” says Wedekind, who models her creations on the site. The breasts and I couldn’t agree more – we admire anyone who invents new ways of accessorising boobs!

Do your breasts get in the way? At least read the first few posts – busty women who wish to educate the world in the problems this entails. Really, no designer in the world cares about you if you’re bigger than a C-cup (Ds can sometimes get away with it, but beyond that you’re pretty much lost!)

posted by Charlotte # 3:56 PM

So perhaps the curvy look really is back! Cleavage wars continue to rage between the various bra manufacturers. From the adjustable cleavage wonderbra to the revolutionary new bioform bra (which you’ll remember uses a shaping cup instead of the age-old concept of the underwire). Well if you ask me, it’s about time there were some real innovations in the bra industry – the design has remained fundamentally unchanged for at least 50 years (one could argue, in fact, since its invention in the early 20th century). Cleavage-enhancing bras and liquid padding have been big winners for Victoria’s Secret, an $800 million business which they hope will grow to $1.3 billion with the addition of new styles.

Fashion’s getting curvy? I think not. Everyone tries to suggest that bigger models should be used, rather than the waif-thin girls that are the norm in the fashion industry. Why not have something of a compromise, and have an actually curvy model? Someone with a bit of a stomach perhaps – maybe even somewhat busty (yes, I admit that Gisele Bundchen is somewhat busty, but those are her only curves).

posted by Charlotte # 2:25 PM

The ’90s may go down as the decade of the grunge-inspired waif, but 2000 marks the return of the woman. “I really wanted a curvy, voluptuous woman, but a modern version of Marilyn (Monroe),” Gucci designer Tom Ford said. “We have a very accentuated chest. The bra is actually the accessory of the season. Every look has got a bra – and those bras, they’re not sort of subtle.” So it looks like we’ll be seeing more and more well-formed women, as buxom models reach a critical, curvy mass in popular magazines. Think of them as Kate Mosses who don’t break when you squeeze them.

Good news for the big-breasted! Charnos are about to release a revolutionary new Bioform Bra, which is now available for pre-order at The new bra replaces the traditional underwire with a flexible undercup, offering improved support and shaping. I can’t wait to try mine out – the breasts are looking forward to it too, and we’ll be sure to report back on the Breast Chronicles once we’ve experimented with the new technology.

Do you think a Breastee would draw even more attention to my double-D decolletage? It’s a brooch that – instead of being pinned onto clothing – tucks into your cleavage. It’s held in place by a stem that slides between the breasts. But it won’t stay put if you don’t boast a C cup or better. This bauble is the perfect gift from a guy to his cleavage queen, because it gives him a legitimate excuse to constantly stare at her breasts! Creator Maybelline Williams is working on a more egalitarian version for the cleavage-challenged: the bottom of the stem would have a clip that attaches to the front of a bra. “Some women will need to wear a body enhancer such as a Wonderbra to create a little cleavage,”‘ she says. Those with nothing to get off their chests will just have to wear a necklace!

Maybe we didn’t invent the terms fun bags, hooters or jugs, but we constantly compare breasts, always wondering if ours are bigger, smaller, rounder, firmer, higher or tighter than the next pair. The author of Breast Envy says, “Breasts are one of the first things people notice. Not just men, but women too. Be honest with yourself, when you check out a fellow lady, you peruse her face, her hair, and almost always her breasts for a quick comparison. I know I do. It’s natural in this competitive tittie world.” We expect men to fall prey to this obsession, but women are just as guilty. I know I am – I can recall undressing in Miss Selfridges’ (communal) changing room to try on a bikini – a quick glance around the room determined that I was the most impressively-endowed girl there!

posted by Charlotte # 8:04 PM

I resent fashion articles which give the impression that big breasts are a figure flaw. eHow to Downplay Large Breasts suggests that well-endowed women consider minimizer bras, wear simple, loose and uncomplicated tops in dark colors, and avoid fitted sweaters and any top with spandex. It also suggests tucking shirts and sweaters at the waist will only enhance your bustline. Forget that, get your fashion advice from Kelly Brook (ooh, so jealous of her in that photo! But at least I have some other pictures of her looking rough to console myself 😉 ). Big boobs look great in a V-necked top which allows onlookers to glimpse the gentle slope of cleavage. As for those clingy fabrics, they fit around the chest and aren’t baggy around the waist.

I’ve always loved C+P designs – I have three or four of their T-shirts now (at least one has already featured on the boobcam). Gotta love the “dangerous curves” (see the ‘party’ section) and “100% Natural” (‘relaxed’) designs!

Many thanks to S&S; Industries , a leading manufacturer of wire, metal, and plastic products. In the late 1970s, its president (a former brassiere model who happens to wear a 34D herself) made innovations in underwire a priority. The result was a lighter, plastic-coated wire that provided support, but was flexible enough to be tied in a knot. It’s now the industry standard — a Godsend to the double-D woman, and also – surprisingly – to her A-cup sister.

She may have “Itty Bitty Titties”, but the author of this poem is blissfully flat-chested. Hey, even I’ll admit that I’ve watched in envy as those small-boned, small-breasted waifs in tank tops jogged braless across the campus without knocking themselves out. And she has no problem getting bras. She can still wear a teen “training” bra, an odd assemblage of stretchy “growing” cups and elastic straps, size AA. A training bra… what are you little people training yours to do? And you call us big girls dumb… 😉

Growing up with large breasts was never a problem for the reasons I usually read about. People didn’t make fun of me because of my breasts; I’ve never really had a great problem with unsolicited attention… so why is it that I took such a long time to get used to their size? We’re back onto society again – I felt that my breasts were too big to be acceptable. Being unable to buy bras in Top Shop and Miss Selfridge made me feel abnormal!

I really think I’ve run out of pro (natural) big breast articles, which is a shame.

Obsessed with Breasts is a breast cancer awareness campaign which I have mentioned before on the Breast Chronicles. It was extremely controversial, and ended up being pulled by some of its promoters. The reason? Breasts are objectified. They are used to sell everything. Magazines on subjects such as computers, cars, video games and photography liberally splash the naked or semi-clad female torso about their covers. Advertisers need to retain the breast as a sexual object in order to continue to use it to effectively sell products. That’s why they’re opposed to the use of images of the female breast being used to promote breast health. Sad but true.

posted by Charlotte # 12:21 AM

Breasts: Society is obsessed with them, and Women are objectified. Life is tough when it’s impossible to escape from Western culture’s infatuation with the ‘perfect breast’. Mammary obsession has resulted in a state of affairs where breasts are objectified to the point that women objectify themselves, where breast-feeding in public (it’s only the breasts’ primary function after all) can lead to arrest for indecent exposure, and where women can feel inadequate if their breasts fail to conform to the ‘ideal’.

I’m thinking of changing the byline for the Breast Chronicles, so it indicates more what the site is about. After all, I came up with ‘the life and times of a pair of 34DD breasts’ before I’d thought properly about what I wanted to achieve with this site – it was barely an idea at that point, and I hadn’t considered any of the practicalities. The ones I’m considering are as follows:

» The only site offering breasts for their own sake

» The ultimate breast resource on the web

The site also has an option to shop by body type, which details the most practical and flattering clothes & sports bras for tall, short, busty, hippy, boyish, curvy, pregnant and plus-size women.

Breast Implants. You know by now that I’m opposed to them (with exceptions already outlined). This page describes the reasons for and cultural effect of breast implants. There are two main types of breast augmentation surgery – inserting the implant on top of the chest muscle or underneath it. Placing the plastic bag underneath the muscle gives a more natural impression. The procedures are described (with examples) in Over and Under Options.

On the Breast Chronicles, I’ve repeatedly looked into the mystery of the sexual attraction of breasts – and here’s some more! Female Breasts and Sexual Attraction. And there are even loads of pictures of scantily-clad women! Cultural differences in breast perception also hold quite an interest for me… However, the culture that is rarely mentioned is British. American attitudes are often compared to European, but Britain isn’t like the rest of Europe. But we’re not as puritanical as America. We fall somewhere in between I think. Just a thought.

I love it when I find articles by people on what it’s like to have big boobs. It’s great to be able to empathise.

While going in search of new breast-related articles, I came accross Hissy Fit wherein I found an article on bras: Breast Dressed.

The Breasts and I would like to announce that we just received an e-mail from FHM to tell me that I’ve made it as an entrant into the jug-o-meter 2 competition. We’d like to thank everyone who wrote in on our behalf. And don’t worry, it doesn’t mean that the Breast Chronicles is going to close down! (it does mean that you might get the chance to see my baps!)

If you don’t think you know enough about breasts already, take a look at Breasts and Cleavage… well, the most interesting thing I found was ‘self massage’ =)

Okay, there are another two articles – by guest writers – to come to the Zine. I’ll get them up tonight with any luck.

I’m not entirely sure of the appropriateness of including this article on the Breast Chronicles, but I’ve always promised to publish anything breast-related, so here’s Chandler’s Memories of Cleavage.
