When Boob Jobs Go Horribly Wrong…

by Natalie P.

Short not-so-shameful confession: I like lingerie.  I own more than one bustier, and some killer stuff from Northbound Leather (I’ll let your imagination ride THAT one…), so when I receive the latest La Senza e-flyer announcing a sale, I opened it. (Plus, I have a $50 gift certificate from a Christmas present that I have yet to use.) 

In addition to some great lingerie,  La Senza has traditionally carried larger sized bras and ones that don’t have under-wire that I find quite comfortable.   

tubular boobsAs I flipped through the various styles, I noticed this girl on the left in several of the ads.  It’s sad really, because SHE probably thinks she looks good. I think she looks like a freak of nature.  You don’t get boobs like that naturally.  Look how *high* they sit up on her chest… It’s like someone planted pontoons in there!


 Look at this other model on the right by comparison:more normal looking breasts 

While I suspect most of these models have had surgery, and missy on the right is probably no exception, at least they look natural/real.


Think I’m being too harsh, then look at this other picture of our blond pontoon girl:

I'm sorry, but those just look so WRONG.

I honestly can’t believe ANYONE could find the boob-job on the left attractive.  Worse yet, I feel angry that we have a fashion industry and a culture that pushes women to mutilate themselves in this way.

And then companies like La Senza go and condone that kind of desperation and stupidity by placing women with clearly horrible boob-jobs in their ads. Even if they are utterly motivated by corporate greed, she’d STILL be a bad idea. I’ll bet there are a whole bunch of women who would see that photo and go “ICK! I don’t want a bra that’s going to make my boobs look like THAT.”  I mean, I see her as a detriment to displaying their goods in the best possible light.

*sigh*…. Maybe it’s the Victoria’s Secret influence.  Since the big American chain bought them out, I just don’t feel the same way about La Senza.

    Yep! I concur, whole-heartedly. I must say that after I finished nursing my son, I was VERY happy to deflate back to my B-cup bras. It’s one thing to have this surgery if you are a cancer patient and want your boobs back, but for women who have healthy boobs and then decide bigger is better, to me, is just insane…especially if they are being coerced/encouraged by their significant others to do so. Ick.

    Yow, you are so right. And one of the brunettes is just as bad (see http://www.lasenza.com/eng/categorysearch/redirect.cfm?sectionID=b2c/style/productDetails.cfm&itemID=110001-040&var=d&itemCategoryLevel1=100&getC=151)

    There are clearly no chest muscles holding up those round mounds. It just looks bizarre

    That looks like over-enthusiastic photoshopping is exacerbating the situation, too, especially the weird cleavage highlights in the first one. Lingerie catalogs are really really bad for photoshop abuse. Especially crotches – can’t have any curve to the inner thigh!!

    What’s even sadder is that her boobs may be just fine – there’s some serious(ly bad) photo retouching going on around her chest area. Her boobs are different shapes in both photos and they look plastic, plastic, plastic.

    Hard to believe they took a girl who was already attractive enough to be a model and made her look awful in the name of beauty.

    …Ok, it isn’t hard to believe. But it is absurd.

    For even worse boob jobs, GIS Francine Dee and Catherine Bosley.

    it’s not a boobjob, it’s a terrible photoshop job by someone who has no clue about human anatomy. Saying that their heads look huge is an understatement.
