The type of boober who converted otherwise innocent boys into breasts fetishists – I’m commenting on myself here people! – here are some photos of vintage pinup Sylvia McFarland and her world-renowned and unique 43DDDs! Yup, say that number again – 43 – then add 3 Ds to the end! Amazing!

TLA Raw, one of my two or three preferred go-to places for adult content currently is having a sale of Taschen’s 2006 publication The Big Book of Breasts, a near-400 page monster of a coffee table book. I mean it’s massive, about a foot squared, and hardcovered so it’s heavy like Roberta Pedon’s all-naturals (the book weighs nearly 8 lbs!). I don’t actually own a copy myself but I’ve frequently skimmed it while visiting a friend of mine who happens to be a burlesque performer so she uses it for inspiration and a sense of legacy (and yes, she has a very large bosom!). However at nearly 50% off the cover price, and cheaper than Amazon’s used copies, I’m considering picking up my own edition. It’s a really remarkable book, with mostly black-and-white and a handful (ahem) of color photographs of some truly remarkable shapes and hourglass figures that are largely responsible for the modern American obsession with baps, bosoms, breasts, juggs, tits, melons, you name ’em!
Here are some page-scans and even a promotional video from Dian Hanson, Taschen’s “sexy book” editor!
Includes the talents of Virginia Bell, Uschi Digard, Candye Kane, Sylvia McFarland, Roberta Pedon, Candy Samples, Tempest Storm, June Wilkinson and even Norma Stitz! Read an excerpt from the editor’s forward and understand how the editor traces the American fascination with boobs post-WWII through Russ Meyer and eventually into the silicon-obsessed 90s, which Hanson is particularly critical of. Order your copy. And watch the editor’s promotional video, including how they produced that delightful cover:
