  • While American women are willing to shell out thousands for a larger rack, women in North Korea are hiding theirs.

    A North Korea newspaper reports that women in their country have typically hidden or decided to shrink their breast as to avoid discrimination. North Korean women who have larger breasts are subject to being viewed as sluts or showing off.

    International reporters explain that women with smaller breasts are equated with purity and chastity in North Korea’s patriarchal culture. The country is known to take pride in resisting influences from the Western culture.

    In one report, a woman with large breasts from Hoeryong said she eats chives because they are rumored to make her breasts smaller. She was shocked to hear that women in South Korea were willing to go under the knife for boobs like hers.

    Despite their conservative beliefs, plastic surgery is slowly trickling in such as among groups of upper class women in Pyongyang.

    Geoffrey Cain, a senior correspondent for GlobalPost said that the country is typically behind in years when it comes to cosmetic trends. However, he believes that as the country’s economy becomes wealthier, the trend of larger breasts, whether natural or cosmetically-enhanced will grow.

    But in South Korea, bigger breasts are extremely popular making it the most cosmetically enhanced country in the world.  Cain says women in China, Indonesia and Vietnam are all jumping on the big boobs bandwagon.
