We live in a world that constantly judges, and we cannot escape the fact that no one can judge women harsher than women themselves.
For years I too believed in the stigma of breast implants, that the women who have them are shallow or have low self esteem,
unnecessary surgery in the name of beauty to look like D,E,F,G, or in Japanese porn culture known as bomber cups.
But my opinion changed over the years, and many women that I met with implants are pleasant women, who just want to look balanced,
self-gratification, married women who no longer nurse their children, or women who survived breast cancer.
Some of these women you can’t even tell they have implants, because in the society’s mind, women who have implants tend to show
their cleavage. Some just wanted a B-cup, or small C, tired of being a pear or the reverse triangle. Having implants is just like
color contacts or dying your hair, except it is more permanent like tattoo, and require extra care, just like everything else.
There are people who furnished lavishly but never receive guests, just like there are people who love to beautify themselves
for their own content. Yes you would like to teach your daughters or sons to love themselves no matter what body shape that have bestowed upon them,
but do not teach them by belittling women or men that made choices to enhance their body. Chances are, they might think of having this surgery in the future,
and knowing how strongly you felt about it, would leave you out of the loop.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On her body image and men: “You always want what you don’t have. My whole life I’ve been obsessed with breasts. I love them. I don’t like fake things, but I wouldn’t mind buying myself a pair before I die. When I hear men says, ‘I don’t want droopy breasts, I think, I’m sorry, you’re not really a man. A man likes a woman as she is. You know when you meet a real man from the way he talks about a woman. You just go, ‘Wow, you’re a man’.”
On regrets: “I can give two sh*ts about what somebody thought I looked like. At the moment I conceived wearing an outfit, I had a thousand reasons. And now that it’s done, and I’m getting feedback that it’s not positive, I’m going to regret it? I take responsibility for my actions, whether the outcome is positive or negative.”
On her clothing choices affecting her personality: “I like looking strong. I don’t need someone to open the door for me. I can open a jar! For some reason, dressing very delicately brings out a fragility that compels people to help you and, I don’t like it.” —
