They can be the absolute centre of a woman’s self-esteem (or lack thereof).
They’re caressed, joked about, loved, hated, admired, envied, adored. They can be the main reason for extreme feelings of absolute comfort. It only takes finding one pea-sized lump to cause absolute dread.
To kick of its science season, on Sunday, April 6 at 8:30pm, will commence its upcoming series, “The Tales of the Unexpected” with “The Secret Life of Breasts”
Breasts are getting bigger and lingerie shops who sell out in size D cups (and bigger) will attest to this.
