I’ll never understand the logic behind a society that both accepts the unnecessary sexualization of female bodies for advertisements and shames public breastfeeding. Seriously, it doesn’t make sense.

Their breast support kit, cleverly titled Cup&Up, promises to "reshape, support and lift breast soft tissue in a much more minimally invasive manner than today's cosmetic breast surgery". The problem with today's traditional breast surgeries, according to MIM CEO Adi Cohen, is they don't take ... Read More
