We have come to a crossroads in the world of boobies as it appears the mantra of “Go big or go home” of yesteryear has given way to “a cup-full a day keeps the erectile dysfunction doctor away.” “Smaller” implants are in and we beg the question, “What is wrong with being natural?”
Spurred on by nearly constant reminders about what is “sexy,” the style in which women are requesting breast implants has changed.
Pamela Anderson’s large-chested buxom look throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s is beginning to erode.
An “athletic” look is in style now as the cup size of implants have shrunk significantly, and so has the celebrity body women are asking surgeons to emulate.
U.K. based Transform Cosmetic Surgery released a decade’s worth of information concerning what women have considered the ideal cup sizes, including the most popular celebrity cleavage emulation requests.
In 2006, “Baywatch” alum Pamela Anderson, was the most commonly sourced celeb, and women were going big with F-cups.
The F-bomb trend continued through 2007 and 2008 when Victoria Beckham and Page 3 model Jodie Marsh were being referenced respectively by patients.
But, in 2009, reality TV star Heidi Montag was the type that women were asking for.
DD’s in place of F’s.
It didn’t seem like such a big deal at the time, but the trend was imminent.
At the start of the 2010’s women were still seeking the curvaceous look similar to glamour model, Katie Price, but then minds started to shift as a different kind of woman began to dominate the spotlight.
In 2011 it was Kelly Brook with DD’s…
…and in 2012 (prepare to be surprised) in the year the world was supposed to end, women most desired the breast and body type of Kim Kardashian.
In 2013 breast consumers shifted their focus from ample cleavage to side boob as Beyonce became the most desired look at a curvy D.
In 2014, with the help of Pussy Cat Dolls’ front-woman Nicole Scherzinger, voluptuous boobies were on their way out in order to make room for an “athletic” toned look.
“We are seeing a trend towards women options for the high fashion, toned model look,” Steven Taylor, the Marketing Director of Transform told Daily Mail. “A toned, athletic look is currently favored over a more sexualized and glamorous look.”
2015 saw the admiration and emulation of the Taylor Swift look (she is apparently a D-cup as well), but the C-up made its triumphant mark on the annuls of boobie history when the most requested look of the year (being 2016) has been Kendall Jenner.
She is the same height as Taylor Swift and recently made her debut as a Victoria’s Secret model and really, who could blame her?
“It is fascinating to see how women’s views of the perfect body shape have developed in a decade,” added Taylor, “and how the celebrities they have referenced most during consultations with our surgeons have changed.”
