In case other forms of augmentation isn't a viable option, now women can order Bloussant, "an all-natural herbal tablet, which, when taken daily will increase ... bust size by up to two cup sizes." The site also has the commercial for the product in Windows Media and QuickTime formats.

I looked at the ingredients list (on which one of the ingredients was spelled incorrectly). The ingredients do have the ability to induce mild breast swelling, but not too much...probably comparable to a little less than birth control pills (in addition to fennel's estrogenic effects, dong quai and cohosh are both menstruation inducers). Cohosh can be toxic (blue more than black, but still), and dong quai can cause spontaneous miscarriage. All these herbs are available in bulk at the health food store, but aren't marketed as a replacement to breast implants, given the small effect.

There's a "Benny Hill" sketch in here somewhere.

The animation of the growth process was totally ripped from Weird Science.
Now there's a great movie.

Alternatively, there's pregnancy.

Or in reverse; alternatively, there's birth control pills.

alternatively, there's learning to love yourself the way you are. :-)

Lactation is always fun for incredible feats of breast size-changing.

What's really humorous is when your child refuses to nurse on one side for a whole day, leaving one breast engorged and much, much larger than its floppy companion on the other side of your chest.

Heh heh!

The pain of engorgement isn't funny, though. But that's what hand-expressing and pumps are for.

Breasts are made to feed babies, not to sit pert and perfect on your chest for the purpose of pleasing males. I wish people in this culture would just get a clue already. *sigh*.

Actually, beth, breasts are mainly for the purpose of attracting males. As you can see by looking at most other mammals, there's no physical reason why an animal needs protruding, visible breasts in order to deliver milk to its offspring; all those parts can just as easily sit inside your body cavity. And flat-chested women are just as able to nurse their children as better-endowed women.

So I say: Hurray for boobies!

I have to admire the sheer gall of the company plugging this stuff, as it seems to be an FDA investigation waiting to happen. The name isn't very good, though. We already have Nads, so why not Nips?

I'd think "Nips" would be a more appropriate name for these little numbers.
