I think we should all congratulate Alicia Richman of Granbury, Texas on her extraordinary mammary glands. The 28-year-old mother is the new Guinness World Record holder for the “Most Breast Milk Donated.” Since giving birth to her son Drake last March, she has donated about 86 gallons of excess breast milk to the Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas, which helps premies and sick babies.
“I’m so thankful that I’m able to help not only my own baby, Drake, but all of the little babies who need it and are sick … It really feels amazing and I’m so thankful that I’m able to do it,” said Richman, who wants to raise awareness about milk bank donation.
That’s wonderful and I’m happy for the sick babies who are getting fed, but I’m still trying to process the thought of 87 gallons of milk coming out of this woman. That doesn’t include what she fed to her son. That is A LOT of milk. [Huffington Post]
As a small-boobed lady, I admit that I can sometimes be a bit ignorant about the difficulties and particularities of being a big-titted woman. I hardly ever wear bras even, because they are just not necessary. But for women who possess rather large boobies, finding fashion can be near impossible. Enter Saint Bustier, an online clothing retailer referred to us by the inimitable writer Caitlin Moran. Saint Bustier provides a vast array of impeccably tailored, classy clothing for women with larger breasts. Sure, some of it is on the incredibly pricey side, but finding a garment that really suits the girls is well worth the investment, we think.
Most of the time, I’m like, “What’s a Joanna Krupa?” And then somebody is like, “Oh, she’s on ‘The Real Housewives of Miami’,” and then I’m like, “Ah, that’s the one hour of crap TV that I refuse to watch.” Sorry, but Miami is the worst. But then, Joanna Krupa does something so deliciously fame-whore-y you can’t help but pay attention: On Thursday night, she wore a totally see-through top while out to dinner with her fiance Romain Zago. The NSFW pic is after the jump! [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

“[W]hat does it say about our culture that it’s plausibly a ‘nightmare’ for a physically attractive 30-year-old woman to be seen topless at a private home with her husband? I wouldn’t dream of criticizing any Duchess Middleton reaction to this. In a similar position I might well be very upset at the invasion of privacy. What I couldn’t help but imagine is how awesome it would’ve been had Middleton called a press conference on a nude beach, arrived topless with a thousand women, and told the assembled press, “The photographer who invaded my privacy had no right to capture those images, but I face that nightmare on a daily basis. And no one gives a damn until one of them photographs me topless? Grow up. I am unashamed of my body. In fact, I rather love it, as all these woman love their bodies. That makes some immature people uncomfortable. And it is their problem, not mine. If you’re sitting at home obsessing over photos of me topless, or giggling and pointing on the streets, it’s you who should feel embarrassment and shame, not me. I refuse to do it anymore.” Ours is a society where that People cover makes sense, and that speech would never happen. We’re doing it wrong.”
– The Atlantic writer Conor Friedersdorf in a fantastic piece about how we all need to learn how to deal with boobs. That’s basically the thesis: Boobs — deal with ‘em. I strongly encourage you to read the whole piece, which addresses the dual stories of Kate Middleton’s nude photos and also the teenaged girl, Amanda Todd, who committed suicide last week after a man photographed her breasts and showed them to her friends. Neither of these things should be a big deal, he argues, yet they are persistent cultural taboos. Friedersdorf hits the nail right on the head: the very same society that tells breastfeeding mamas they should go feed their infant in a dirty bathroom stall is the same society that makes teen girls think their naked boobs are something they should be ashamed about. The simple fact of the matter is that breasts should not be taboo. Be modest, if that suits you. Don’t be modest, if that suits you better. But breasts are not sinful or shameful or bad.

“Acting is secondary—I don’t feel like it’s going to stick around because it’s not something I want to do forever. My art has always been my top priority and I have far more experience in that field than I do in film. It’s hard to explain without sounding like a dick. I’m not that person. I’m really grateful for such enjoyable work, I just don’t feel as though I have any clout as an actor. I haven’t earned it, and I don’t intend to.”

If your only contact with the female sex — say, perhaps, by court order — is through alcoholic beverages that have been poured over their naked cleavage prior to bottling, than I suppose this German liquor company’s publicity stunt is very exciting indeed.
But that, and only that, is the only reason you might not be a major loser for drinking G-Spirits. Keep reading »
Another fall, another round of intense fashion weeks. Whether we’re talking Melbourne or Milan, one thing remains a constant — there are a lot of damn boobs on the runway. And sometimes they fall out of their shirts or stand at attention under sheer underthings. Here, we’ve captured the latest round of boobs on display during the spring/summer 2013 fashion week season. Don’t say we never did nothin’ for ya.
If there’s a lesson to be learned from Jami Lynn Toler, the Arizona woman accused of faking cancer to raise money for breast implants, it’s that some things are just not worth doing for fake boobs. The 27-year-old told her grandmother, her boss and dozens of other friends and family members that she needed money to get a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery. She even went so far as to set up fake fundraisers and an online donation page. Toler raised $8,300, which she used to pay for her new pair of boobs. No, there was no cancer involved. It was a lie. For her crime, she was sentenced to a year in jail, three years probation and she will have to pay the victims back. Hmmm. Accepting you natural boobs or facing incarceration? I choose natural boobs! [NY Daily News]
Toler’s not the only woman who has done something incredibly stupid just to get implants. Click on to see what other dumb things women have done for bigger breasts. Ladies, so not worth it!
This week, high fashion mag Jalouse released its latest issue — with boob-tastic Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton striking a pose. Kate, who manages to channel Anna Nicole Smith (in a good way!), typically ends up with most of her clothes off, so it’s nice to see her explore her haute couture side. What do you think of her Jalouse look? If it’s not really your thing, then check out Kate’s other covers above!
Who here likes boobs? That’s right, everybody likes boobs. Your probably touching yours right now, if you have ‘em (pervert). In the spirit of our collective boob-preciation, we’ve decided to showcase the absolute best boobs at last night’s Emmy Awards. Remember, you don’t have to be ginormously big or practically flat-chested in order to cast a nice boob spell. It’s all about how you carry ‘em. Thanks for the mammaries! (Sorry.)
