Boob Job: The Alternative to Surgery


I was recently in San Francisco at Nordstrom trying on a bra and when I gave it back to the sales woman telling her it was too big, she said “O honey, don’t worry, you’ll grow into it!” Being in my 20s I told her I thought it unlikely that my cup-size was going to increase anytime soon, shocked the woman told me she estimated my age at 16! While I’m all about working with what you got, given that my petite cup-size passes for that of a 16 year old, I can’t help but be intrigued by Rodial’s new product called Boob Job. However unbelievable it may seem, the cream promises to increase your cup-size by 8.4% within 56 days!

Though, I have to say that I’m not exactly sure what an 8.4% cup-size increase looks like and part of me thinks that, with all the fluctuations in size that goes on during my menstruation cycle, the 8.4% stat might just be something that more or less occurs naturally…

For their part, Rodial says that Boob Job works with our natural fat cells and that as the fat cells move around the body after eating, Boob Job “blocks” the fat into the area where the product has been applied. Besides the increase in cup size, Rodial also promises an instant lifting and firming effect. For now, I can say one thing for sure – the cream feels smooth and has a wonderfully fresh smell, but check back in 56 days and I’ll let you know if Boob Job delivers on the rest!

In the meantime if you’re curious and want to try it out for yourself, State-side the cream is only available online, but beginning in June you’ll be able to get it at Henri Bendel and at Fred Segal…Let me know if you notice any changes if you try it too!!
