Many Filipinas are going gaga over one of the latest online product crazes — a soap from Thailand that purportedly can give them firmer and bigger breasts.
Several satisfied users have posted before and after photos and testimonials attesting to a much bigger bust with the use of the soap that gave them self-esteem.
For those who want to get a bigger bosom, they can use the Breast Enhancement Soap like any ordinary bath soap and massage their chest with the lather. Results are supposed to be noticeable after two months of usage.
A blogger, who identified herself as Caroline, swears by the efficacy of the wonder soap.
“I have been looking for ways to improve my breast size. I tried taking pills before but to no avail. That’s why I did not hesitate to try it when I learned about the breast enhancement soap from Thailand,” she said.
She claimed even after her first try she already noticed her breasts had gotten firmer. And later on, she claimed she had to change her bra size from 34B to 36B.
However, a cosmetic surgeon explained the more reliable gauge of increase in breast volume is the cup size because the numbers represent the circumference of the chest.
A couple who is selling the Breast Enhancement Soap online said they sell around 400 pieces of the soap at P450 each.
The soap purportedly contains extract from the plant prueraria mirifica.
Rich in phytoestrogens, postmenopausal women are said to have used it in Thailand for more than 100 years as a skin moisturizer, to improve regrowth of hair, to improve body flexibility and sexual performance and to firm up and enlarge the breasts.
However, there is no medical literature to confirm such claims of beneficial effects of the plant.
Many customers of Amazon.com who have tried breast enhancement products containing prueraria mirifica said they are satisfied with the results.
“I have been using this product for about six months and I love the results! My bust has increased by over an inch in those 6 months,” one user said.
Of course, there are also customers who said such products simply do not work.
So, despite the claims of amazing results customers who dream of a comely figure with fuller breasts and want to try the soap should very well be reminded of the Latin saying: caveat emptor (buyer beware).
Properly forewarned, disappointed users should not make mountains out of molehills.
