Tuesday Titillation

The Triple Boost Bra is the latest ladies' undergarment to hit the British market.  It claims to boost any woman's bust size by three cup sizes.  All the renewed interest in bigger bust lines and hour glass figures is being blamed on Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks.

The pictures in the article (see link above) show a pretty dramatic difference in the model and it actually looks "natural."  However, the model warns:

"If you go on a date with someone and they really like your boobs, they’re going to get a bit of a disappointment. I think I’d rather they knew the truth in the first place. Don’t advertise in the window what you don’t stock in the shop, as they say."
Just one more disappointment after she takes off her make-up, contact lenses, her dentures, her hair extensions, and her Spanx.

As the article says, "It's definitely better than chicken fillets."

Have you ever seen 'The Crying Game'? Now there the main character gets a dreadful shock...

Ermmmmm..... Isn't that technically a penis? I thought you were a girl!


wv: pinhea - not quite pinhead but not Orwellian either (see comment on your latest comment on WR)

crock: Chicken filets were the original meat apparel, long before Lady Gaga.

rabbit: Yes, "The Crying Game" exactly proves my point.

I confess I'd never heard of Spanx before, but I did click your link. Rather sexy, that, I will admit.

On a separate but related note, I've noticed as a bartender a major increase in the number of people, female and male alike, ordering the Old Fashioned this past year. I attribute this to Mad Men as well. In fact, people often tell me that that's why they're ordering it -- because they watch Mad Men -- and if you're feeling really bored, you can check out this clip here in which I make, among other things, an Old Fashioned live on location, at the jazz lounge where I work.

shoes: but it never happens

ray: Great video clip. Looks like a great place to work. Now, bartender, how about a Manhattan, extra dry with a twist of lime...
