Ever heard of the Marshalls? If you're a plastic surgeon, you should go look them up.
According to The Huffington Post
, the Marshalls are the most cosmetically enhanced family in Britain. Mom Chantal and 4 of her daughters, aged 20 - 31, all have boob jobs. Between them, they have spent £50,000
on breast augmentation, according to UK newspaper The Sun
. At today's exchange rate, that's $77,335.
Now, that amount of boob jobs in a family is a little creepy to me. Chantal's breasts, 4th from the right in the photo above, look completely unnatural. But Chantal loves them. So much that she's pushing for 14-year-old daughter Britney to get one when she's 18, despite the fact that Britney's not sure if she wants one.
Britney seems like a normal 14-year-old girl. The Daily Mail
reports that she wants to travel the world, work in business, and be the first in her family to go to college. She says she would consider breast augmentation in the future. But right now, she "just wants to focus on [her] schoolwork."
Most mothers would be delighted, but not Chantal. She even told The Sun
, "At the moment she doesn't really have what I would say are boobs - but I'd like her to follow in her sister's footsteps."
Britney and her total lack of boobage is pictured below:
Yeah. She has plenty of cleavage for a 14-YEAR-OLD girl.
I try not to make comments about other people's parenting, but this is a little insane. A 14-year-old has enough body image issues as is, and her mom and older sisters telling her she should get bigger breasts certainly doesn't help. Props to Britney for standing up to her crazy giant-boobed family.
As for the father? Chantal and he separated 12 years ago, and his opinion is not mentioned in the articles about the Marshall women. The boys, however, aren't big on the idea. Chantal has 4 sons, aged 15 - 24, and some have encouraged Britney to keep her breasts au naturel.
Good to see at least some people in this family are normal.What do you think? Am I being too harsh?
