My mom's boobs are about that size, but she doesn't keep them up under her neck like so. I think this woman must either be wearing a push-up bra or similar device, or has a very large stomach that is pushing them up.

Judging by the size of her arms, I'd wager she is probably very overweight.

To my untrained eyes, the separation between her breasts doesn't look natural. Has anybody good at spotting manipulations examined this pic yet?

I vote fake. There is actually an inflation fetish, but I am at work and do not want to look up any sites. I read about it in Savage Love.

I'm just thinking that perhaps this might have come from one of those websites as it reminds me a bit of those pics.

If that's real, she's got to have the guiness world record. Or she has a serious illness in her breasts.

I can't imagine a woman's breasts being that big besides either an illness or stupidity from installing the implants.

I dunno about illness, but there are definitely disorders that can make em pretty huge. Combine that with a mild case of obesity and it certainly is possible. However, something does look a little wrong about this picture - why are they pushed up to her face? Why does she look like a balloon? Of course, it could be some disorded I don't know about.

There are definately women that naturally have that large of breasts. There are some that are regulars here on snopes. To me that looks like she is a big girl in a small bra.

The more I look at it, the more I get the impression it's a composite of two pictures, with the breasts and arms from one model and the head and forearm of another. For one thing, her forearm is weirdly shaped and appears suspiciously long to me.

Her left breast, in the foreground, appears to be very differently shaped, in comparison with her right breast and with breasts I have encountered elsewhere. There also seems to be a bit of a lack of pixelation, a blurring or smoothing effect where her breast overlaps her face. Compare it to the crispness of the line between her breasts. There's also a very small area of blurring or smoothing along the line of her cleavage just above the bathing suit and a similar softness of line quality along the edge of the suit as it follows her left breast. A bit of an odd wrinkle. I can't say it's photoshopped but it sure is suspicious.

ETA - In none of the photos on the topheavy site can I find a woman whose flesh curves up over her collarbones like that.

To spot the manipulation, look a the contour of the right side of her body. Pay specific attention to the underside of her right breast and the forearm that is "exposed". Not only is the curvature of her torso unnatural, so is the abrupt end to the pattern on her blouse. The forearm and the background are free of any detail.

While the average photoshop artist would expect us to assume that the forearm and background contours would be obscured by absense of light, a better artist would have taken more care to manipulate the viewer's assumptions.

This is another example of how knowledge of desktop publishing is no substitute for education in visual arts, illustration and design.

I have no opinion on the photo manipulation, but I doubt that's the woman's usual posture. She's sitting slumped in the seat and has her shoulders hunched, her breasts pushed upwards by her arms, and her chin pressed down into her neck.

If she was sitting up straight and not pushing her breasts up I doubt she would look as unusual as that.

Just a thought, but if her body is that big then why is her face not matching the fatness?

I know because I was 300 pounds five years ago and my face had double chin and the cheeks were fatter. 250 now and the chin and cheeks are smaller than before.

If you look under her ears, you can see there is a lot of fat on the lower face and probably a chin or two buried somewhere in her cleavage.

How much TMI is needed before going forward with explaining how this can't be real? Being a big boobed, 300 pound, chunky love monkey myself, I have that "Gosh darned annoying boobs!" market cornered.

Let's assume her breasts are real. (C'mon! Let's go there!) As Mythophobia said, there's gravity going on. Even with space age technology anti-gravity bras, your boobs do not start floating into your neck. I will say, if she's wearing a space age technology anti- gravity bra, her breasts will be squished together. Us obese, big bosumed ladies, not even with help from a crow bar, will lift and separate. Dammit.

Now, again, if you want to believe those are her real girls on her chest - the only way they would be that high up into her neck is if she were lying down in that outfit. (Out of the outfit, well, no "lift", but definate "separate".) Not even if she had the seat leaned back would she be that hard off.

If those were her real breasts that far up into her neck, she'd be choking herself from the weight. That's a reason if something falls to the floor, I have to bend at the knee and pick it up - because if I just lean over to grab something, I literally can't breath. I start choking and have to stand up. And I don't even have the chest this picture is claiming.

Last detail driving me nuts about this picture: For someone who has larger arms that I do, and heaven knows bigger gabonzos, she sure has a small tummy. I would have a hard enough time fitting behind the wheel without it pushing into me (even with the seat moved furthest back), yet it's not touching her stomach at all. If you take in the factor that maybe she has her seat reclined a little...no, that still doesn't explain the small tummy in relation to the rest of her body.

--------------------
I would prefer not to.

I feel like if those were augmented boobs they would be more spherical even without a bra, and if they were natural they would not be sticking out like missiles even with a bra.

I'll say Photoshopped also...look at how rapidly her arms shrink once they get past the objects that obstruct them namely the mirror and the windshield frame. It's not natural...

I dunno - my beloved bride sits right at about 300 lbs, and has small forearms like this woman.

My vote: a heavy, VERY well endowed young lady, posing her ass off.

er...

CHEST off. She is wearing a bra that is MUCH too tight, and it squishing it all up and out, then hunching like a mad fool for the tittilation (somebody HAD to say it) of male viewers.

When I look at the pic I'm wondering where the rest of her left breast is. The right one is huge, but there isn't nearly the same mass for the left.

IMO this is because there was more'visual mass' for the Photoshopper to work with on the right breast because of the angle- he just enlarged the pic and had no way of adding the equal volume to the left breast without manipulating the arm and her clothing which he probably didn't know how to do.
