If celebrity habits are any indication of what the culture demands, certain internal fashion accessories are now being downsized. It seems as though the bastions of big boobs are having their implants reduced. That’s right—Heidi Montag now has smaller breasts, so the rest of the nation is soon to follow.
Bringing Small Boobs Back
It might not entirely be an appreciation for the small of boob or even a concern for what famous people do. Historically, every decade or so, we decide that we all want to go “natural.”
After the post-war, plastic artificiality of the 1950s and early 60s, people grew out their hair and avoided bathing in the late 60s and early 70s. Then, when everyone got sick of that, they jumped back in the shower and grabbed cans of Aqua Net in the 1980s. When Grunge happened, we started playing shirtless Hacky Sack in open fields. Then came the digital explosion, and we started playing our Hacky Sack in dot-com corporate offices. And so on, and so on.
The point is, we might have entered an ersatz au naturel phase again. Cosmetic surgery patients are requesting smaller implants so that they look more “natural.” And no, the irony is not lost on us.
We kinda love the trend toward the Brazilian B, as these smaller, natural looking breast implants have been dubbed. It takes a certain level of confidence to opt for subtlety over flash. Having breast enhancement that flatters the entire frame rather than drawing the eye directly to the boobs is undoubtedly more tasteful than just buying the biggest implants possible.
Of course, there will always be people who want milk jug-sized jugs, but for the time being, bigger isn’t necessarily better.
