The bra market is expanding, literally. Up to 40 per cent of Australian women now buy bras with a cup size of DD or higher, new figures from lingerie suppliers show. In the 1950s, the most common bra-cup size was a B - three sizes less than a DD. Modern breasts are getting so large that some bra companies have introduced cup sizes as high as K, The Sunday Telegraph reports.Note the reference to "experts." Where do you go to school to become an "expert" on breasts? Perhaps I could get a scholarship, some work-study credits or something in the Obama administration's vocational retraining program.
Experts blame the cleavage boost on obesity, contraceptive pills and artificial hormones. Myer lingerie buyer Kerryn Sawyer said sales of DD-plus bras have grown from about 20 per cent of sales to 28 per cent in just five years.
I'm not going to name the blogger who sent me that story with the plea, "Not sure I could do this justice, but I bet you could." However, since this one's sure to get me at least another week in the doghouse - my beloved wife reads the blog -- dude, you better hit the tip jar.
BTW, I'm obligated to point out that this is a legitimate political news story because it's linked at Memeorandum, with further Insightful News Commentary at the Moderate Voice and PoliGazette. It has not yet, however, been linked by Professor Glenn Reynolds. Maybe once he realizes that you can't spell "Dodd" without "DD" . . .
