Has Palin had breast implants?
It sure looks like it:
Palin last year on cover of Runner’s World, and Palin last Sunday at Belmont Stakes
As a less excited commenter at Wonkette points out, photos 1 and 2 of 60 in this series would tend to suggest that Palin has not had implants. At the same time, the evidence in the above photo strongly indicates to my mind that she has.
You may not be aware of this, but female athletes, especially those with larger breasts, wear sports bras that strap down the breasts. For many large-breasted women, running without such a bra can be an unpleasant business. The wiki page does not mention it, but among the effects of wearing such a bra is that women look considerably smaller-breasted than they do in any other sort of bra. Thus, without knowing what she is wearing, any picture of a female athlete is fairly uninformative for the purposes of breast-size assessment. So showing a picture of Ms. Palin in her running gear is pretty meaningless.LA replies:
Prior to this, I have never seen Palin, in any photo or TV appearance, in which she looks large breasted. She has always looked like a fairly small breasted woman, or average size at most. In the beauty context video, taken when she was 18, she looks average size, and was also probably enhanced for the purpose of the contest. There are no prior pictures of her in which she looks remotely as big busted as she does last Sunday at the Belmont, with these melons that have the typical look of silicone implants.Leonard replies:
Clothing can make a huge difference in how people look, including women’s breasts. You can hide a lot in a large shapeless jacket, as on the cover of Going Rogue. In fact Palin is usually photographed wearing a jacket of some sort, which is appropriate for a politician.Paul K. writes:
Seeing Palin on Fox News the other night, I thought she has put on weight—her face looks fuller—and that would account for some extra size in the bust. In the series of photos you linked, she doesn’t look as busty in any of them as she does in the pictures taken at Belmont. She may have been wearing a type of slightly padded Victoria’s Secret bra which makes the breasts look larger but which is also more comfortable. (I learned about this from my wife.) Another possibility: she’s pregnant again? [LA replies: No. Remember how no one noticed her last preganancy until something like the seventh month?]Jim C. writes:
With respect to the image of Palin wearing a jogging outfit: I’d surmise that her lovelies are being constrained by a tight sports bra. In the other image Palin appears to be wearing a supportive push-up bra, which has the opposite function from the sports braLA replies:
A push-up bra can make the breasts seem larger. They can’t make small to average size breasts turn into what we see in this photo.
