Can You Enlarge
Your Breasts Just By Thinking Them Bigger?

Bodypower first published in 1983.)
According to clinical
research published in very reputable journals, women can use their

of the most startling and comprehensive research projects on this subject was
undertaken by Dr Richard D Willard of the Institute of Behavioural and Mind
Sciences in Indiana, who asked 22 female volunteers, ranging in age from 19 to
54, to use self-hypnosis and visual imagery in an attempt to enlarge their
breasts. At the start of the study, which was eventually described in full in
the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, five individual breast
measurements were taken for each woman - circumference, height, width and other
measurements were recorded by a doctor who was not involved in the experiments.
The volunteers then attended Dr Willard's clinic once a week for six weeks and
once every two weeks for an additional six weeks.
At the first session
the women were taught how to relax their muscles by using the same sort of
technique as the one I have already described in this book. Subsequently, they
were asked to do this and then to imagine that they had a wet, warm towel draped
over their breasts. They were asked to imagine that the towel was making their
breasts feel warm, or - if they found this difficult - to imagine that a heat
lamp was shining directly onto their breasts.
Once the women were
satisfied that their breasts were getting warmer, they were asked to develop an
awareness of a pulsation within their breast tissue. It was suggested to them
that they should become conscious of their heartbeats and feel each new beat
pushing blood into their breasts. They were told to practise this exercise every
day at home.
At the end of the 12-week experiment, 28 per cent of the
women had achieved the growth in breast size that they wanted, 85 per cent had
confirmed that a significant increase in their breast size had been achieved and
46 per cent had reported that they had had to buy bigger bras. The average
increase in breast circumference was 1.37 inches; in breast height, 0.67 inches;
and in breast width, 1.01 inches. Most women reported that by the end of the
experiment they could feel warm blood flowing into their breasts simply by
thinking about their breasts.
There were other advantages, too! Those
women who had - at the start of the experiment - complained of having breasts of
unequal size, reported that their breasts had become equal in size. All the
women reported that their breasts were now firmer. And some 63 per cent of the
women, who had complained of having pendulous breasts when the experiment had
started, reported that the fullness and the contours of their breasts had
returned. Incidentally, to make sure that the extra breast size hadn't just been
achieved by an increase in weight, the women were also weighed at the start of
the experiment. At the end of the 12-week period 42 per cent of the women had
actually had a weight loss of greater than 4 pounds, but had all nevertheless
noticed an improvement in their breast size.
When he studied the changes,
Dr Willard found that there was no correlation between the increase in size and
the size of the breasts at the start of the experiment. He did, however, find
that there was a correlation between the ease with which the women were able to
visualise blood flowing into their breasts and the increase in size which they
obtained. The only two women who subjectively felt that their breasts had not
increased in size (but who did, in fact, have a measurable increase in bosom
dimensions) had both had difficulty in feeling the effect of the warmth on their
In another, similar experiment Allan R. Staib and D. R. Logan of
the University of Houston encouraged three women under hypnosis to imagine
themselves going back in time to when they were ten or twelve-years-old. The
women were told to imagine that they could feel their breasts pushing outwards
and that they could then feel the skin getting tighter as the tissues grew. Then
they were asked to imagine themselves standing nude in front of the bathroom
mirror some two or three years after the completion of the experiment. They were
told to notice that in the intervening time their breasts had become
Staib and Logan managed to show that their volunteers also
enjoyed an appreciable improvement in breast size. Moreover, they also revealed
that even after three months the greater part of the gain remained.
not easy to explain these startling results, but it seems likely that the
results obtained by Staib and Logan were, like those obtained by Willard,
produced by an increase in the amount of blood flowing through the breasts.
Masters and Johnson had indicated in 1966 that the swelling of the female
breasts during sexual arousal is produced by an increase in the amount of blood
in the tissue.
Biofeedback practitioners have proved many times that the
general circulatory system can be controlled voluntarily and these specific
research projects provide analogous evidence. But the breast-enlarging
programmes do, in addition, show that the increase in circulation may be
followed by a consequent tissue growth. And that is most remarkable, for it
suggests that there may well be other, even more startling uses for this
particular type of self-hypnosis.
