    Let's Talk about Breasts

    Like the Rest of the Body, the Breasts get Fat too

    When you are younger, the breasts are made of milk glands, fat and collagen, which are responsible for holding them firmly. But as you age, these connective tissues shrink and get replaced by fat. Although you can keep changing the size of your bra to prevent sagging, you can’t really help it.

    There are Women with Three Breasts

    Perhaps finding a woman with three breasts was limited to the movie “Total Recall” or so we thought. There do exist women with three meat bags on their chest, though it is closer in connection to a medical condition (not so much of fun, eh?) called supernumerary breasts or polymastia. According to the medical condition, a third breast can appear anywhere on the front part of a woman’s body.

    You can Stroll without a Bra

    But, not in your geographical area unless you live in Hawaii, Ohio, Texas, New York and Maine. The freedom to no bra does not in these areas, however, allow public nuisance. What may hurt to know more is the fact that women if seen topless in Dubai are put in jail for a minimum of 6 months. If you must strip at the beach, the best bet would be to read the respective country’s “bra laws”.
