Korean boobies getting bigger!

by Robert Koehler on December 7, 2004

bigger boobsThe Kukmin Ilbo reported that according to an investigation done by Korean bra manufacturer Vivien of its bra sales over the last five years, boobies are a’ growin’ all across this wonderful nation. Crunching the numbers, Vivien discovered that A cups decreased from 64 percent in 1997 to 58 percent in 2003, while B cups increased from 27 percent to 30 percent. Sales of Cs and Ds also showed marked increases, going from 7 percent and 1 percent in 1997 to 9 percent and 2.5 percent in 2003.

Meanwhile, bosom circumference has actually been on the decline — 70cm bosoms went from 3 percent to 5 percent, 75cm bosoms increased from 37 percent to 42 percent, 80cm bosoms stayed at 36 percent, while 85cm and 90cm bosoms decreased from 19 percent and 3 percent to 14 percent and 1.5 percent. What this means, according to the Kukmin, is that you’re getting slimmer women with bigger boobs.

Increasing boobie size was explained as the product of Westernized diets — yes, the very same Westernized diets that are eating away at chopstick skills and hence threatening the future of Korea’s biotech industry — as well as exercise and plastic surgery.

Now, all this might sound somewhat puzzling to those who saw actress Kim Min-joeng during this year’s Blue Dragon Awards, so in the interest of journalistic balance, I bring you actress Kim Hye-su from her latest public appearence, or even better, Kim’s photo gallery at Naver.com. There is also this ETN TV piece on the “Award Ceremony Battle of the [exposed] Busts,” with a video that’s instructive mostly in that shows just how little you have to show in Korea for it to be considered “shocking.”

Perhaps it’s time for the Marmot to get off his translating @$$ and go out and do some field work.

I gather Mrs. Marmot wouldn’t be so keen on the whole field work idea.

For me, this roBust news compensates for having all my illusions about Korean men shattered in that previous “Lost” post!

Definitely good news. According to one theory, eating lots of cheese helps you get bigger boobs.

Yes wooj, but not in the function per se (I wrote it :-) , but in the wp-comment-review file. Annoying, but I couldn’t yet identify where the problem came from… (And it does happen even with the original file, sans my visual check script…).

Supersize me
This is certainly good news.

I hate to rain on the mammory parade, but as I recall from an article something like 60% of women wear the wrong bra size (In the US that is). Perhaps it not growth, just hopes of it.

I don’t really care. Frankly, I’m a legs man.

Hopefully Korean girls will lose their flat asses and also develop nice round American-style butts to go with them bigger boobs.

Hmm.. while they were measuring they should also measure waist size, hip size, and also average weight.

American diet, indeed.
