I swear since conception my boobs became immediately painful, very sore and huge, well huger, (just another bonus to being preggers) so tonight when I leapt up, my boobs bounced a little and I nearly crumbled in pain, the question popped into my head "I wonder how much my boobs weigh now?"
So yes I googled it and here's what I found, from a programme Trinny and Susannah did, a method of weighing your boobs!!!!
Dr Tyrer’s water method:
• The equipment needed is a kitchen balance, a baking tray and a bowl large enough to fit a breast in.
• Weigh the baking tray, record the weight.
• Put the bowl onto the baking tray and then put the combination onto the kitchen balance.• Fill the bowl with water up to the brim.
• Now carefully place the breast into the bowl until the rim of the bowl contacts the chest area, so that the breast is now totally immersed.
• The displaced water is captured in the baking tray (the bowl can now be removed from the baking tray) and the weight of the baking tray with the displaced water is now noted.
• Once the original weight of the baking tray is removed we now have the weight of water which has been displaced by the breast.
• 1 litre of water weighs 1kg so an individuals weight can now be represented directly as a volume.
• Repeat the procedure for the other breast.
• Now you have the volume and weight for the total breast tissue of an individual.
HEY LADIES......... come back, put down your baking tray and bowl and finish reading my post ;)
No seriously I know you will all be curious so one word of advice seeing as its winter, make the water warm!
HAVE FUN, I WILL.
