Today, The Smoking Jacket investigates which woman in the world has the biggest boobs. Recently, Sheyla Hershey made headlines when she experienced complications while undergoing her umpteenth boob job on her 38-KKK breasts. While she was touting herself as having the biggest breasts in the world, does she really? In fact, Guinness awarded the world record holder title to Maxi Mounds, whose bra size is 61-MMM. But yet another contender claims a 153-XXX cup. I think the world of super-sized boobs is more than I can handle. [The Smoking Jacket] Keep reading »
We know Mel Gibson likes beavers. But the star has a terribly sexist attitude towards other ladyparts — breasts, to be exact.
A week ago we were all shocked and appalled by an audiotape in which Mel allegedly screamed at his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, “You look like a f**king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers it would be your fault.” (And yes, that’s not if she “is” raped, but if she “gets” raped.)
That wasn’t the last of Mel’s Reign Of Boob Terror. In the sixth alleged Mel/Oksana audiotape, released earlier this week, he is screaming at Oksana about her breasts yet again. Keep reading »
If there’s one thing I like more than a boobs story, it’s a deadly boobs story. Brazilian model Sheyla Hershey, 30, of Houston, Texas, is in possession of the world’s biggest breasts, measuring in at a whopping 38KKK. Last year she told the Houston station KRIV, “I want to look better each day, every day. Everybody’s got a dream inside, you know? And it’s good when you can make your dream come true.” 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.

When Emma Tamburlini was 11 years old, her father, the late Pop artist Larry Rivers, began videotaping her and her sister every six months, naked or topless, and talking about their budding breasts. He edited the footage into a 45-minute film about his daughters called “Growing.” Rivers planned to show “Growing” as part of an exhibition, but his wife, Clarice, who appears in the film with his other teenage daughter, Gwynne, stopped him. At 16 years old, Emma became anorexic. “It wrecked a lot of my life actually,” she says of her father’s filming.
Today, Emma Tamburlini is 43 years old and attempting to stop New York University from including “Growing” in an archive of her father’s artwork. NYU purchased all of Larry Rivers’ work from the Larry Rivers Foundation, which has refused in the past to destroy the tapes at Emma’s request. After buying the archive from the Larry Rivers Foundation for an undisclosed price, NYU has only pledged to keep “Growing” private throughout the daughters’ lifetimes but is still discussing how the matter should be handled. Emma Tamburlini and her mother believe the films should be returned to the family. Keep reading »
Uh oh, mommy-blogger kerfluffle! The deputy editor of the UK’s Mother and Baby magazine, Kathryn Blundell, has ruffled some feathers after describing breastfeeding as “creepy.” In a recent article in Mother and Baby, Blundell wrote that she bottle-fed her baby because “seeing your teeny, tiny innocent baby latching on to where your lover has been feels, well, a little creepy.”
You know, I actually agree with her. Keep reading »
Bored at work? A little horny? Head right on over to Playboy‘s website for a gratuitous boob photo spread on the “Evolution of the Boob”! Playboy dipped into their old photos to show us breasts from the past six decades because, apparently, “boob shape” is as cyclical as fashion. Now, I looked at those mammaries long and hard and I daresay there’s no difference between ’50s boobs or ’80s boobs or ’90s boobs. The only way breasts have “evolved” — if you could even call it that — would be in terms of “pre-breast implants” and “post breast-implants.” But hey, if Playboy‘s foxy Miss November pin-up 1958 reminds men that bleached blond hair, fake nails and giant silicone tatas were not always considered “attractive,” fine with me!

For the last five months, I’ve been walking around with one-and-a-half breasts. The reason: My breast reconstruction, a two-part surgical process that began with expanders and will end with the implants I’ll get tomorrow, didn’t exactly go according to plan following the prophylactic mastectomy I had two days before Christmas.
Due to this post-op snafu — and the fact that I, a breast cancer gene (BRCA1) carrier, had to make an impossible choice of removing my breasts without ever having had breast cancer — I’ve spent most of 2010 being uber-focused on my partially deflated girls. Read more … Keep reading »
