In case you didn’t know, or didn’t hear about it yet from your buddies on Facebook, today is National Cleavage Day! According to the good folks at Wikipedia (who know about all these obscure little “days” here and there) NCD started in South Africa in 2002, by bra manufacturer Wonderbra, in conjunction with Cosmopolitan magazine and 5FM, a Johannesburg Top 40 radio station…..
And, well, you know how these things, um, blossom…..
Wonderbra recently took a rather unscientific poll to determine who would make the manufacturer’s “Celebrity Cleavage Hall of Fame.” George Mathis, a reporter for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, noted his post on National Cleavage Day that Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame was not on the list– due to the fact that Mad Men has not reached enough residents of the U.K., where the poll was taken.
The Brits, however, have their own buxom babe–someone by the name of Holly Willoughby, who’s a model, TV presenter, and mother of two. In this pic, Willoughby bears something of a resemblance to Brigitte Bardot, who also made the list.
Oddly enough, if you are a bra cup size larger than a DD in the United States, you will more than likely have to purchase a bra made by a British manufacturer. We don’t seem to make large cup size bras in the U.S.A., even though many women, like myself, have been amply endowed by good old Mother Nature (and not a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon.)
