Win a prize, cop a feel! Claw vending machines in Japan have been known to offer bizarre-o prizes like live crabs or turtles, cigarettes, underwear, power drills and packages of American $2 notes—so, by comparison, these busty stress relief balls seem vaguely normal. Or not. [Inventorspot] Keep reading »
In strange boob news you can use, two new stories emerge on the breast front: a surgically implanted bra and an effort to regrow breast tissue. Israeli researchers are working on Cup&Up, a bra that’s inserted into the body. The Minimally Invasive Mastopexy is supposedly less intrusive than a typical breast augmentation. Adi Cohen, the man behind the “internal bra,” explains: “What we’ve done is build a silicone bra, insert it into the body and attach it to the ribs and to the fascia.” So far, though, they’ve only tested the Cup&Up on … pigs. Meanwhile, in Australia, researchers are working on ways to regrow human breast tissue, which could help cancer survivors. Let the cyborg breast revolution begin. [Gizmodo, Newser] Keep reading »
I was sitting around the other day, and I was thinking, you know what I really need? And then I thought, what I really need is USB-powered breast warmers. And then, voilà! There they were. That’s serendipity for you. Japanese manufacturer Thanko has created the USB Bust Beauty Pad for those who suffer from chilly breasts, and it can be yours for a mere $20. Plug the device into the USB port of your computer, stick the pad in your bra, and your breasts will be toasty in no time. Um, do some women’s breasts actually get cold? I’ve never heard of this phenomenon. But to each her own breast-warmer. [The Awl] Keep reading »
In an always appreciated roundup of information I actually need, the folks over at Asylum put together a list of bizarro breast enlargement techniques that don’t require several thousand dollars and a surgeon. The approach given the most credibility is, surprisingly, tit-no-therapy. I mean hypnotherapy. Because I’m not nine years old. Some people really do seem to take it seriously. The Body Contouring Programme, which sells hypnosis books and CDs for brightening the headlights, cites a list of publications that have given the thumbs up to hypnosis for bigger boobs, including two references by Deepak Chopra. The most recent of Deepak’s articles, though, was written in 1993. In fact the most recent publication referenced on the website was from 1993. Have breast enlargement hypnotherapy techniques sat stagnant that long? Are boob whisperers on the endangered species list? The Body Contouring Programme says its current in-office sessions cost $1500—is it wrong that I’m this curious? [Asylum] Keep reading »
I’ve always thought it was really sweet that Jessica Simpson and Dolly Parton are friends. When Jessica flubbed the words to “9 to 5″ performing for President Bush a few years back, Dolly said to the press, “Jessica is so talented that I’m sure that someday they will be paying tribute to her.” When folks poked fun at Jessica’s weight, Dolly told Larry King, “People always treat her bad. They always talk bad about her. I just recorded a song with her a few months ago. And I’ve never been around a person any sweeter in my life.” These two have a ton in common—the big blond hair, the country roots, and, of course, their massive chests. Well, last night on Twitter, they finally acknowledged the latter commonality. Dolly Tweeted, “Ahhh chiropractor … Hurts so good : – ) you lug these around and see if your back don’t hurt!” To which Jessica responded, “Amen sister : – ).”
Here’s hoping they start a group called the Big Tittie Committee and invite Pamela Anderson to join them in discussing the woes of being top-heavy. [Huffington Post]

Tila Tequila wants to give back to the world. That’s why she is donating a plaster cast of her boobs to a charity auction. The Keep a Breast Foundation, the recipient of the proceeds of her boobies, certainly isn’t batting a nipple at her auction item. Get out your checkbooks, folks, because the likeness of Tila’s girls is already going for over $45,000 and there are still seven more days of bidding. I wonder how much they’ll go for? [New York Post]
Tila isn’t the first celeb to auction off racy items. After the jump, some more naughty celebrity auction items. Ooh la la!

My older brother is getting married to a girl I legitimately like. I’m happy for them. Really, I am. Keep that in mind as I make the following statement: Their wedding and all the surrounding events make me want to hurl. It’s not so much the constant “So what about you? Is there a boyfriend?” questioning I’ve come to expect from family, our friends and people I’ve not seen since I was maybe two feet tall. It’s the dresses. Cocktail dresses for the busty and hippy are a difficult thing to come by. Usually, it’s a shapeless mess of a tent dress or a slutty problem of a form-fitting one.
You, however, can learn from my years of double-D drama. Use these tips to find a happy medium that you’re not quite literally busting out of. Keep reading »
I am a busty lady, and what might suck most about it is never finding a supportive sports bra—I’ve always had to wear two to make sure the Boobsey Twins stay in place when I’m on a run or working out. While there are solutions out there for C, D, and larger cupped ladies, I find a lot of these bras are either made for women who also have larger bodies or they’re simply so freakin’ ugly that I just can’t bring myself to wear what looks like some t-shirt flotation device. My latest discovery is this Adidas “Simia” sports bra with underwire (underwire—thank you!). It also has all the makings of a sturdy workout garment—molded cups, wide straps and a hooked back closure. How about that. [$40, ShopAdidas.com] Keep reading »
