The last time we saw Serena Williams, she was getting beat like Kunta Kinte at the U.S. Open against some nameless chick we don’t care about. Serena made excuses at the press conference, something about not being 100% because of injury, I don’t quite remember because I was trying to stare at her chest. Anyways, on to the point of this post:
A report on MSNBC suggests women don’t have adequate support for their bouncing breasts. The bigger a womans breasts are, the more pain and discomfort she’s likely to experience while participating in physical activity. As we all know Serena undoubtedly has the juiciest jumblies in all of womens sports, so the excruciating pain she must be going through while simultaneously playing world class tennis is commendable.
Considering the fact that Barry Bonds probably has bigger boobies than most female athletes these days, Serena is carrying around a beautiful, but taxing burden.
Check out some of the startling facts revealed in the study:
- The bouncing, in some cases with breasts weighing 20 pounds or more, can prove painful and damaging to the limited natural support system.
-During walking exercise, the women’s breasts moved relatively the same amount in all directions. But when participants sped up to a jog or run, their breasts moved proportionally more in some directions than others: More than 50 percent of the total movement was in the up-down direction, 22 percent side-to-side and 27 percent in-and-out.
WOW! Tell us more MSNBC.. I’m drooling right now… but thats only because I’m thristy for more knowledge!!!!
In A-cup women, wearing a sports bra reduced overall breast movement by 53 percent, compared with a 55-percent reduction for G-cup women.
A pair of D-cup breasts weighs about 15 to 23 pounds.
But breasts have little natural support, Scurr says, although ligaments and the skin are thought to do most or all of the work. Breasts are made up of fat, milk ducts and connective tissues, such as collagen, ligaments and blood vessels. The momentum created by intense bouncing can stretch the breast’s connective tissues, causing sagging and pain for many women.
Now don’t misunderstand this report, Sportaphile isn’t suggesting Serena make a mistake and gets a reduction or anything. If it came down to her career or her chocolatey mounds of goodness, the breast must be preserved at all costs. She has a budding career in fashion anyways, who needs tennis?
