This, of course, led us to wonder how much our breasts weigh. This, of course, led to hysterical laughing after envisioning ourselves laying on the floor trying to get each breast on the digital scale and then trying to read the number.
As it happens, we’re not the only ones to wonder about breast weight. (Thank goodness!). And some people actually think weighing your breasts is a more accurate way to find a suitable bra, as opposed to traditional measuring methods. And there actually IS a way to do it! Who knew?
If you’re interested, celebrity stylists Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine suggest following these steps to weigh your breasts:
Equipment needed: Kitchen scales, baking tray and a bowl.
- Weigh baking tray and record weight. Fill bowl with lukewarm water to brim and place on tray. Place one breast into the bowl until totally immersed.
- Water will be displaced into baking tray.
- Weigh tray and displaced water. Subtract weight of tray. You will be left with weight of displaced water.
- One litre of water weighs 1kg. To convert to weight of breast, multiply figure by 0.9.
- A breast that displaced one litre of water, weighs around 0.9kg and is on average the size of a 36C.
Seems kind of complicated, but we asked, didn’t we? J Would you consider going through the trouble to weigh your breasts, or are you going to stick to old-fashioned measuring tape?
