A “super boob job” is defined as an increase in four or more cup sizes in one cosmetic procedure. To put that in context, it’s like going from a B cup to at least an F cup overnight. Which is insane when you think about how much extra breast weight you’d be carrying on your chest. According to the latest stats, super augmentations have doubled in the UK since 2010. They now constitute 10 percent of all breast augmentations.
Further complicating the matter, plastic surgeons say that women want natural-looking super boob jobs — practically an oxymoron. To have Christina Hendricks-sized boobs that look like Victoria Beckham’s breasts is nearly impossible. “Women want bigger, more pert breasts, but they don’t necessarily want people to know they’ve had something done,” said cosmetic surgeon, Miles Berry. Sigh. More impossible beauty standard to live up to. [Daily Mail UK]

An employee, however, did not feel as comfortable about Eades nursing her baby and decided to take the law into her own hands. Watch Eades tell this lady what’s up. DAMN STRAIGHT.

“Boobies” isn’t a bad word, especially when it’s being used to promote a breast cancer awareness campaign. A judge in Pennsylvania seems to think so, too, which is why he reversed a Pennsylvania school district’s decision to ban the “I (Heart) Boobies” bracelets. In a 9-5 decision, the court ruled that the “bracelets here are not plainly lewd and because they comment on a social issue, they may not be categorically banned.”
