A Boob Experiment

by Marlies Dekkers

“Please draw your own breasts and write one sentence explaining how you feel about them,” I asked 15 great women working for marlies|dekkers. The result was funny, sexy and at times, very moving

When New York Magazine did a poll asking 57 women, aged 17 to 72 how they see their own breasts, I immediately wondered what the result would look like if I did this poll among the women at our office.

These women who deal with breasts professionally on a daily basis.

So I asked them, and they went to work with a magic marker. I loved the results, and funnily enough, I recognised some of the women immediately by their drawings. I guess our breasts, and especially the way we see them, might influence our identity more than we think! Enjoy!

How do you see your own breasts? Try to make a drawing; you might gain a very interesting insight into yourself!

Don’t forget to shop great bra’s for those great boobs!

Who is Tasya van Ree? The mysterious girl in the big black hat has been fascinating art connoisseurs and fashion lovers alike since she burst onto the scene with her stunning black-and-white photographs of celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez and (one-time lover) Amber Heard. I asked the Hawaiian-born visual artist of Dutch-Japanese ancestry (41) about her art and soul. “Between both King and Queen is where I exist.”

Sara Mearns (31) is New York City Ballet’s boldest ballerina. A passionate, intense dancer, she started dancing at 3 and starred in Swan Lake when she was only 19. But instead of resting on her laurels, Sara has kept challenging herself with daring projects, from a collaboration with hip-hop dancers to a leading role in a Broadway show. I talked with the fierce Swan Queen about sacrifices, body confidence, and how to turn pain into gain. “I’m not the typical skinny, tall, long-neck kind of ballerina.”

The art of love!
