Pears? Pyramids? Apples?

In a recent article in MORE magazine, Madame Poupie Cadolle compares our breasts to pears, pyramids, and apples. She oughta know. She is the great-great-granddaughter of Herminie Cadolle, who in 1889 invented the first bra. Women from all over the world fly to Paris so Madame Poupie, one of the last corsetieres, can measure and have a bra made to fit you with perfect engineering, seams, and darts all sewn for you and your pyramids. Or apples. Or pears.
It takes about two months to get an appointment, and depending on the euro, could cost approximately $800 for three fittings and one custom made-for-you bra pieced together by a staff of six seamstresses.

Would I do it? To have that kind of experience, knowledge, and history from someone; and feel like you have the best boobs ever afterwards? You bet I would.
