While on vacation in Hawaii, I was finally able to answer a question that has plagued me since I was a teenager.
"Do boobs float?"
I always wanted to know this after reading a provocative novel wherein one male character was captivated by the boyancy of the female character's chest when they went swimming. The idea made sense but, seeing as how I have been flat practically all my life, I never had the opportunity to find out. I didn't really feel comfortable asking some stranger with "the proper instruments." And I couldn't really STARE at women on the beach or in a pool to find out (hmmm, maybe with better sunglasses?).
And there was no way in hell I was going to ask my mom. Or flatter my "blessed" sister by asking her.
Since having a baby, parts of my body kinda "shifted" -- I guess you could say. For those of you looking for one more excuse to NOT have a baby, I am delighted to report that having a baby doesn't permanently increase the size of your bust in any way, BUT it sure does leave you with a bunch of extra skin your body has no use for. Hot, I know.
And this is the reason that I could finally answer that troubling anatomical question. After spending a week in the waters of Waikiki Beach, I am happy to say that, YES, BOOBS DO FLOAT! And it's super hot (even if you have boobs that usually look like a chef accidently stapled two thick pancakes to your chest).
