“They’re real… and they’re spectacular”. Anyone of a certain age will remember that famous line from Teri Hatcher’s guest appearance on Seinfeld… after a full episode of Jerry, George, Elaine and Krammer debating whether her breasts could possibly be real… and how they could find out.
Its a tough topic to broach. How do you ask a woman if she’s had a boob job? We would never hesitate to ask whether someone has had there hair coloured or whether they’ve lost weight. Yet a boob job is so steeped in judgement that it is an awkward – bordering on impossible – topic to bring up.
So, what’s going on? Why are boob jobs stigmatized as the ultimate intrusion on God’s design for your body. We can wear makeup, starve ourselves to lose weight, spend obscene amounts of money on clothing, or get a nip or tuck virtually anywhere. Anything to improve our appearance is fair game. Except…. getting a boob job is a bridge simply too far.
My wife is half thinking about a minor boob job. She would like to a be a bit bigger. And she’s met a number of women who she thinks (i) have great boobs and (ii) may have purchased them. But she has no idea who to ask them whether they are, indeed, purchased. And then, where they got them done. Because, lets face it, there are some amazing boob jobs and there are some pretty hideous ones.
