I was looking on the internet for a cheap alternative for breast enlargement. I found a web site selling a product, swearing it was true. www.perfectwoman.com. It is said to make your breasts grow up to one cup size and all this and that. Please let me know if this is both an affective and safe unternative. This stuff is a little pricey.

None of these things are for real. And they all swear they are: they have to to sell their products and make their cash.

Have a look at this thread: http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/1/t/007704.html

Didn't the title of that cream even make you just a little bit angry, perhaps enough that you can see why focusing on things like this -- and letting people who want to make money prey on people's insecurities -- or considering giving people like that money is the last thing you'd want to do?

If they have a doctor who is talking about how it is supposed to be like going through puberty again or pregnancy and how its supposed to be good for PMS symtoms.... how can they sell it if it doesn't work. It sounds so convincing

Marketing.

Really, do you think that all diet pills, penis enlargement products, and other such things work? If that was the case, I think there would be FAR more women with very large breasts (and men with 9" penises) and extremely slender bodies.

These products sell because people want bigger breasts, for example, without the pain and cost of surgery. None of their statements have been evaluated to have any truth in them through any experiments and their claims have not been evaluated by the FDA. Any "doctor" who claims these products work is either not an actual doctor with an M.D. or extremely corrupt.

A lot of claims sound very convincing. However, if it sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is.
