Could it be that we can thank the hit series “Mad Men” if some British women are a bit more…robust in the chest area?
British newspaper The Telegraph reports that new statistics set to be released by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) are expected to show that the number of women having breast augmentations increased more than 10 percent in 2010 after stalling in 2009.
The paper says a BAAPS source suggested that the increase could be tied to the ample charms of buxom actress Christina Hendricks, who stars as secretary Joan Harris on the AMC show.
The paper quotes the source as saying, "You could argue that. Christina Hendricks is gorgeous, and the hourglass figure is definitely back in fashion. Let's just say that heroin chic isn't the big thing at the moment."
