Tuesday Tata-bits

More about the girls...


To go along with my Moving Comfort Bra Giveaway - here are some fun facts...
  • The average breast weighs 1.1 lbs and contains 4-5% of the body's fat.
  • The average breast size in America is currently a 36C, although 15 years ago it was a 34B. 
  • In 2008, there were more than 300,000 breast enhancement surgeries performed in the U.S.
  • During the same year, there were nearly 18,000 breast reductions performed ... on men.

  • In the early days of surgical breast augmentation, surgeons used implants made from a number of peculiar ingredients--including ox cartilage, glass balls, polyester and ground rubber--with disastrous results.
  • Did you know that there is a size 38KKK bra? (It's worn by the woman with the world's largest implants.)
  • It's legal for women to walk around showing off their breasts in Hawaii, Texas, Ohio, New York and Maine--though they can still be picked up on public nuisance laws.
  • Smokers will have saggier boobs than non-smokers, because the chemicals in cigarettes break down the body's elastin.
  • Sleeping on your chest can change the shape of your breasts over time, stretching the skin and leading to sagging.  So to preserve what you've got, sleep on your side with breasts supported by a pillow.

  5. That cartoon is hilarious. I tend to attribute all my excess weight to breast weight. That's not necessarily accurate, but it makes me feel better. 38KKK? That's insane.
