10 Myths About Breasts That Are Actually Completely False 0 37

It’s safe to say that the world is obsessed with breasts. From finding a way to make them perkier to going under the knife to make them larger, boobs are often the topic of conversations, punch lines for jokes, and the subject of rumors. Over time, facts about breasts have been plagued with myths, and it’s time to set some clarity to those wives tales that have become embedded in culture.

Only Women Get Breast Cancer

Gaining Weight Will Give You Large Breasts


Sophisticated Pair

This is sort of true. Breasts are made of fat, so when you gain weight, it’s assumed that breasts will get bigger. One has to take into consideration that everyone has a unique body type that distributes fat differently. While a woman may see her breast size increase, it may not be proportionate to other areas that have also gained weight.

Sleeping In Your Bra Causes Cancer/Makes Your Breasts Perky


Wise Geek

The only thing sleeping in your bra may do it cause discomfort. It will not cause you to get cancer and won’t make your boobs perkier. As soon as you take your bra off, your breasts will go right back to where they’re supposed to be.

Doing Push Ups Will Lift Breasts


Giphy

While push ups strengthen the muscles behind the breasts, they don’t necessarily do much for boobs themselves. When women see a difference in their breasts because of exercising, it’s because the chest muscles are being affected.

Breasts Should Be The Same Size


Giphy

For most women, one breast is larger than the other. Many find it hardly noticeable, about one fifth of a cup size, and nearly five percent have a more dramatic difference.

Breasts Stop Growing After Puberty


Giphy

Breasts will change throughout a woman’s lifetime. Puberty starts the process, but it certainly doesn’t end their. Weight fluctuations, pregnancy and childbirth, and other mitigating factors will cause changes.

Breastfeeding Makes Breasts Sag


Giphy

It isn’t necessarily breastfeeding that makes breasts sag, but the weight gain during pregnancy. During pregnancy, breasts get bigger, but the post-pregnancy weight loss makes boobs look deflated. It’s important to talk to your doctor about how much weight gain is healthy during your pregnancy.

Kylie Jenner’s Beauty Secrets Increases Breast Size


Instagram

When Kylie Jenner posted on Instagram that the Pure Leef product was her beauty secret to a bigger butt and her breast size increasing, many fans took it at face value. However, those Kardashian/Jenner girls are known to promote products for profit, whether or not they truly work. There also aren’t any studies to verify Kylie’s claims and the product isn’t even FDA approved.

Men Only Like Large Breasts

As much as people want to generalize what men are attracted to, we can’t lump them all into the same box. There are breast men, butt men, legs men, eyes men…the list goes on and on. If you don’t have large breasts, don’t worry. The man who falls in love with you will also love your small boobs.

The Pencil Test Determines Saggy Breasts


Murr Brewster

Many moons ago there was a theory going around that they way to determine whether or not your breasts were sagging was to use a pencil. The breasts were to be lifted and the pencil place under the breast. When the boobs were released and if the pencil was held there, then the woman needed to wear a bra because her boobs were sagging. Women everywhere with breasts that doctors wouldn’t consider to be anywhere near sagging thought that they’re boobs were doomed.

20 Vintage Photos Of Las Vegas Before It Became Sin City 0 81

 When you think of Las Vegas, you probably think of chiming slot machines, strippers, and the strip flanked by huge brightly lit casino hotels. But it wasn’t always that way. Once upon a time, Las Vegas, Nevada was just this dusty little town that had a few low-profile casinos. Take a look back at vintage Las Vegas for some serious nostalgia.

Las Vegas, 1906

Daily MailThe San Pedro, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake Railroad was officially completed in 1905, and what was left behind was a cute little desert town far smaller than what you’d find today.

Fremont Street, 1921

Lake-Eglington/UNLV Special CollectionsFremont Street, which would later become the most happening part of Las Vegas, was little more than a small town main street in 1921.

Gambling Casino, 1935

Daily MailBecause of the construction of the Hoover Dam in the early 1930s, there was a huge influx of people living and working in Las Vegas. Gambling was legalized in 1931 and casinos started popping up soon after.

Fremont Street, 1944

Ed Clark/UNLV Special CollectionsOnce casinos became such a big attraction, Fremont Street was the main drag that drew in gamblers.

Golden Nugget, 1950s

Neat StuffAfter World War II, there was a huge boom for Las Vegas gambling. So many new casinos and hotels popped up between 1946 and 1955, though still barely anything compared to what you see now.

Vegas Vic

Neat StuffThe neon cowboy for the Pioneer Club, named Vegas Vic, was a staple of Fremont street. People who had never even been to Vegas could recognize him.

Las Vegas Casino, 1950s

Neat StuffThe interiors of casinos looked a lot different back then compared to now. For one thing, they were a lot brighter inside.

Showgirls

All That Is InterestingLas Vegas showgirls were a huge attraction, and even the smallest casinos had shows.

Frank Sinatra, 1955

Daily MailIn the 1950s, Las Vegas was frequented by a laundry list of big-name celebrities, and Frank Sinatra was a king among famous men.

Miss Atomic Bomb, 1957

shootingparrots.co.ukVegas also drew people in with atomic bomb testing. They detonated their first atomic bomb in the desert outside of town, with a huge crowd watching in 1951. They went on to detonate over 100 bombs at the Nevada Test Site.

Fremont Street

retrolandusa/FlickrOver the years, Fremont street became more brightly lit. Neon signs filled the sky, many of which had moving parts like the famous cowboy sign.

Las Vegas From Above, 1964

Daily MailLas Vegas began to change. While Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas was the place to be, Las Vegas Boulevard, known as the Las Vegas Strip, became the new happening area to build huge casinos.

The Lights Of Las Vegas, 1966

Keystone-france/Gamma-Keystone/Getty ImagesAfter a while, the lights on Fremont Street began to have a retro feel. It was seen as the old-fashioned part of Vegas.

Tanya The Elephant, 1966

Daily MailVegas was not opposed to publicity stunts. When Tanya, an elephant that performed at the Dunes Hotel and Casino, played at the blackjack table, people loved it.

Woman Playing Craps, 1963.

Keystone-france/Gamma-Keystone/GettyThe late ’60s brought a lot of racial tension in Las Vegas. Segregation was a national issue at the time.

Sahara, 1960s

retrolandusa/FlickrWhen city officials were slow to desegregate, the crime bosses that ran Las Vegas casinos put the pressure on. After all, they wanted to make more money by allowing everyone into their casinos, regardless of color.

Dunes Hotel

AlamyWhen the 1970s came along, there was a huge boom in the Las Vegas population. More and more people were flocking to the casinos.

Entering Las Vegas, 1970s

Keystone-france/Gamma-Keystone/Getty ImagesSince the Las Vegas strip became the mecca for gambling, they built this “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign in 1959. What’s funny is that the Las Vegas Strip isn’t actually in Las Vegas. It’s just outside the city limits.

Caesar’s Palace, 1971

retrolandusa/FlickrAs time went on, hotels and casinos got bigger and more lavish. Caeser’s Palace was the first completely themed hotel on the Strip.

Fremont Street, 1979

Gary Thompson/Las Vegas Review-JournalPeople have mixed feelings about Las Vegas now. Gamblers love a night of losing money, but, as you can see from this graffiti, others think it’s a town of moral decay. What do you think?
