Is 'Mad Men' star increasing boob jobs in England?

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."

    British women have the largest breasts in Europe. The reason breast augmentation is on the up is probably because of women with a smaller cup size and feeling insecure around all the DDs.

    Also to the person commenting on the dental hygiene of Brits. British teeth are fine, we just don't obsess over them. Wearing braces or retainers beyond the age of 22 is too far.

    I don't really like "Mad Men", but if it's encouraging bigger cans I may have to start watching it.

    @ Britt: a black superman may come sooner than you think. Remakes are popular in Hollywood just now and Will Smith & Jay-Z have formed a new production company. Will has already redone Karate Kid and is about to begin work on the musical Annie.
    Just give those guys a little time.
    FYI: And remember the Rock in Walking Tall? This movie was based in the real (white) sheriff from McNary County Tennessee by the name of Buford Pusser. Rock made changes to the script to maintain respect for the legend and made a great film.

    They should do something to boost dental work in England. My ex-wife is from England and yes, they have some jacked-up grills.

      I hear that when the Brits get socialized healthcare, they will be able to get all that dental work done for free. Oh, wait ....

      Because Superman is white. Same reason white guys don't play lawn jockeys and butlers.

    Post hoc ergo propter hoc. Just because an increase in breast implants follows the popularity of a show with a busty lady doesn't mean that the actress inspired people to get breast enlargements. Unless the patients were polled and confirmed that was why they got surgery, I'm not sure how this conclusion was reached. Perhaps I'm taking this blog post too seriously but I'm kind of offended by logical fallacies.

      Well i do not see how you find it offensive. They have every reason to believe that the show caused it. Just because you're offended isnt going to change their minds. Everyone has the right to believe what they want so just let them believe what they want.
