Holy Neck-Boob, Batman!

Did you know that back then, they used glass globes as breast implants and perfectly spherical boobs were ideal. Like two little globes on your chest. Fucking weird.
Noooo, not quite. The first breast augmentation was in 1895, performed by Vincenz Czerny to even out the chest of a woman who had had a tumor removed. Yes, glass balls were sometimes used as implants, but it was long after the Renaissance.
