40 pounds of string*

One of the reasons I like reading odd-topic non-fiction (mummies, the cadaver trade, aliens, and civil war re-enacters) is because it highlights how madcap and diverse humans are, especially in how they make their living and generally live their lives.

Right now I am midway through Stacked: A 32DDD Reports from the Front. I should note that the author is herself an un-augmented 32DDD, but her book visits, among other things, the world of outsized breast augmentation.

An undisputed queen of this demographic is Maxi Mounds, currently the record holder for largest augmented breasts in the Guiness Book of World Records. After reading general facts about her life (she lives with her partner Mini Mounds, wears specialized bras, and can neither sleep on her stomach or give full frontal hugs) I was compelled to look for MM on the web. As one might expect with an exotic dancer and a world record holder, there is much to be found on the WWW about Maxi Mounds, including a video clip of her weighing her breasts (20 pounds apiece) on a Miami talk show.

One can only imagine the look on the technican's face when Maxi shows up for her annual mammogram.

*surgical polypropelene string - 40 pounds total - is what's used to make Maxi's mounds, well, maxi.

Can you get a mammogram with augmented breasts?

She has beautiful eyes.

Generally, no, I would think one cant get a mammogram with augmentation, since that kind of "squishing" might pop the saline bags...but super-duper augementation like Maxi's is done with what essentially amounts to surgical polypropalene string all wound up and stuffed into each breast - this results not only in a more "natural" feel to the enhanced breast (as if breasts the size of beach balls are at all natural) but an added bonus of increasing size post-op, as the string absorbs fluids and swells.

Come on, even from my point of view, its all in the eyes...probably not that necklace though.

...Its all comical...whats this, the looney toons site?

Definitely got my attention though as a narrow minded dude...if I was the sea floor, most would comapare me to the bligh reef.

I'm out like that necklace.
