“I’m very happy with myself. For me, my story behind it was making young people actually think before they do something. For me it was waiting. It’s the message I actually had to say. When people found out about it, one person asked me and I just couldn’t lie. I didn’t feel the reason to lie. I’m proud of myself that I waited. That’s 10 years I was like ‘I hate this top. It does not fit. I hate this top.’ … When I initially thought about that, I was 17 years old. That’s a ridiculous age to make a decision to do something different to your body.”
– Kelly Rowland‘s message to young people is to wait until they’re older to alter their bodies. The funny thing is, none of her fans knew she was waiting 10 years to get breast implants until she actually had the surgery. Why can’t celebrities just say, “I really disliked this part of my body and had the funds to change it, so after years of frustration, I did something about my insecurity,” and leave the whole message to young people excuse out of it? But at least Kelly has the courage to admit she has breast implants, unlike some other celebs who altered their bodies at a young age and pretend otherwise. [TheYBF] Keep reading »

I was 10 years old and all I wanted was boobies. I wanted them so badly I would buy balloons, fill them up with water and then stick them in my shirt. I wasn’t even developed enough to be wearing a bra, and sure enough I owned a “training bra” so my miraculous boobies, that my mom told me I would eventually grow, would have a place to go. Regardless of how badly I wanted breasts, I never ever stuffed my bra with toilet paper. I was smart enough, even at the age of 10, to know that stuffing my bra with paper towels not only looks fake, but it feels fake, and is humiliating if and when it falls out of your shirt. How do you possibly explain the tissues that are sticking out from your shirt? I figured you don’t. Not that anyone was touching my breasts at 10, but bumping into a boy in gym class with paper towel boobies was not something any boy would ever let me live down and definitely not a risk worth taking. But the girl I saw while I was out the other night, didn’t see anything wrong with stuffing her bra with paper towels.

Five years ago, British mum Deborah Higley had a boob job, increasing her bust from a 32A to a D. Her teen daughters, flat-chested themselves, shared a bedroom and would chat before sleep at night about how they, too, wanted breast implants. This year Deborah arranged for her 19- and 21-year-old daughters, Harriet and Rose, to increase their cup sizes as well — and their father covered the bill for all of this. For reasons completely unknown to me, the Higley ladies and their new bosoms posed together for the U.K.’s Daily Mirror newspaper. Keep reading »
