“I remember crying in the bathtub. I took a washcloth, made it hot, put it over my chest and prayed, ‘Please don’t let them grow any bigger. They’re embarrassing me.’ All my friends were super skinny, and that just wasn’t my body type. But I watched my mom, who was always comfortable with herself, and she helped me with my outlook.”
– Kim Kardashian talks to Shape about being uncomfortable with her developing body when she was age 10. Now, of course, her assets are her biggest money makers. [E! Online]

As a sometimes-proud member of the itty bitty titty committee, it’s really difficult for me to imagine needing a K cup bra, let alone a KK cup. I’m in the minority, however, as the average size of women’s breasts has increased over the years, as a result of weight gain, cosmetic surgery, and other unknown factors. With an increase in bust size comes demand for correct support. British retail chain Debenhams is answering the call with the help of luxury brand Panache, which makes the Harmony Bra. Debenhams makes a great profit from its range of bra sizes available in D cup and above, so it makes sense that the shop would decide to carry the KK cup Harmony Bra at its Oxford Street location in London. This bra, which has been nicknamed “wind socks” for its 20-inch cups, is available in black, white, and nude for £25 (about $38), which sounds like a steal since bras this size were previously only available through special order. Unfortunately, women in the U.S. who need this size will either have to travel to London or wait till they cross the pond, because all the KK bras are sold out online.

Remember how a little while back I wrote about breast expansion videos? Apparently, some men have this thing where they really dig watching videos in which the woman’s boobs get really big. Go figure! Men are wacky. Well, it turns out there’s another parallel thing called butt expansion videos. I mean, do I really need to explain what they are? After the jump, watch the term “booty poppin’” get redefined. It may put your eye out. Keep reading »
NB: These are not just any nipples from the store. They are beauty nipples. Accessorize your breasts accordingly. [The Daily What] Keep reading »
Shocking, I know, but I had to break the news some time: Our fabulous funbags are actually biologically designed to feed hungry babies, not just to look tasty in a Body by Victoria C-cup. Alas, some Neanderthals can’t handle such a bombshell about breasts — namely, folks in corporate America who’ll do everything from tweet (and delete!) to kick a nursing mother out of a restaurant at the slightest hint of a snacking infant.
After the jump, two recent breastfeeding incidents that make us think we could all use a Biology 101 refresher course. Keep reading »
