Picture the scene. It’s Friday night and after going for ‘just the one’ after work, you eventually tumble through the door in the early hours and you’re so, so tired worse for wear. Too tired to take off your make up, or brush your teeth, and as for removing your clothes, well forget about it.
Boobies, puppies, the girls, breasts, titties…Boobs are pretty amazing things. But though you might think you know everything there is to know about your lady lumps, there are actually some pretty surprising boob facts that will likely make you see your bumpy bits in a whole new light.
Contouring has long been the secret weapon of drag queens and if they can make themselves look like they’ve got boobs without having actual boobs, imagine what it can do for your baps! This tutorial by beauty blogger Natalie Boucher will tell you everything you need to know.
The reason for our lady lump fatigue, it seems, has nothing to do with how we look and everything to do with the sexual, abusive or ‘creepy’ feedback women receive via social media.

Researchers at the University of Sheffield say they have identified the molecular switch that causes women’s breasts to stop producing milk when they stop breastfeeding. It is hoped that the new research could provide vital insights into the development of breast cancer.

That’s according to a study by British researchers which surveyed 1,315 people and asked them to look at different breasts and pick the proportions which they deemed to be most appealing. And while results were analysed according to age, sex and nationality, the winning size was the ’45:55’ ratio – with 45 per cent of breast tissue falling above the nipple line, and 55 below it. This size is considered to be a ‘natural shape’ similar to the ancient Venus de Milo statue, and is a world away from large, cosmetically enhanced breasts.
