One German model from Hamburg’s claim to fame is sure to turn a few heads: she's got the world’s largest chest. Just how large exactly? Well, her breasts actually account for half her body weight.
It’s safe to say that it can be a bit difficult for most people to maintain eye contact with this German model, known as Beshine. According to Beshine, real name Marya Hills, she’s got the world’s largest breasts. As per her official website, they weigh a total of 33 kilograms, or 5 stone! She is popular on Twitter and has about 141,000 followers. This accounts for almost half of her body weight, leading to several health problems.
It's not all fun and games
As one would come to expect with a weight like this, her breasts are a source of chronic back pain as well as many other problems. Leaning forward is almost guaranteed to end in disaster for her. Shaving her legs is also completely out of the question for her. It goes without saying that she must spend a fortune on buying custom bras as well. Another complication is therefore shoulder grooves, since the bra straps dig in to the shoulders, and do not fully support the breasts. Bras with wider straps can help.
Besides back pain, overly large breasts can also affect the neck and the fingers, causing numbness. Besides this pain, rashes can also form, since large breasts trap heat and moisture underneath them. In addition, large breasts make it difficult for women to exercise, and do other physical tasks. This lack of physical activity also has long term effects on the health.
Many women in this case thus opt for breast reduction surgery. In 2018 in the UK there were about 2,300 breast reduction surgeries, a figure which increased over the preceding two years.
