The lack of firm breasts and good bums lowers self esteem to most women.An investigation by Saturday PUNCH shows that many women in Lagos have become addicted to using push-up bras and bum enhancers.
A number of women admitted to the magazine interviewer that they can not step out of their houses with no bum enhancers or push up bras.
“The truth is that I don’t like how I (my breasts) look without the push-up bras. I’m addicted to them to the extent that I don’t feel okay wearing the normal ones again. Even when I’m wearing a camisole under a jacket, I don’t feel alright without a push-up bra…..ladies is this true?? A female banker, who identified herself as Kemi, said
“It makes me feel more confident and when I feel confident, I tend to work better. I actually tried a few times to stop and go back to using normal bras, but it’s been difficult because I don’t like the way I look in them. It’s like I always get positive attention when I wear push-up bras.”
Ms. Titi Babatunde, who sells women’s underwear at Oshodi Market, Lagos, says she sold at least 24 bum enhancers a week.
