There is no such thing as ‘fake’ boobs. Implants are not natural, but they are very real. They’re just not biodegradable. When it comes to breasts, some prefer natural and homegrown; others want the best modern science has to offer. Whatever your preference, here are eight tips on how to spot the difference.

When it comes to breasts, some prefer natural and homegrown; others want the best modern science has to offer. Whatever your preference, here’s how to spot the difference.
To complete this How-To you will need:
Time to ogle
Step 1: Check the side view
It’s difficult to tell the shape of a breast when it’s holstered and hoisted in a bra. But in its natural state, the profile of a real one will slope down so it’s fuller at the bottom than the top. If an unfettered breast maintains its full, perky roundness, there’s probably an implant holding it aloft.
Tip: If cleavage is rounded or looks inflated on top, it’s either being given a major push from below, or it’s fake.
Step 2: Consider proportions
Mother Nature rarely bestows big breasts on skinny, small-boned girls. So if a size zero girl is sporting double D’s, they’re probably store-bought.
Step 3: Check the spacing
The average distance between a woman’s nipples and her chin is approximately 10 inches, depending on her height. If the space is considerably less than that, it may indicate implants.
Step 4: Watch them in action
When a woman moves, her breasts move with her. If she’s walking fast, they bounce. When she lies down, they flop to the side. If she bends over, they become more conical. Fake ones stay still and maintain their round shape.
Tip: Some high-quality implants today are designed with intentional sag to make them look more like the real thing.
Step 5: Judge their symmetry
God-given breasts are never exactly the same size; implants tend to look like a matched set.
Step 6: Find telltale marks
Breast implant surgery leaves telltale signs, like tiny scar lines under the breasts, by the armpits, or around the nipples.
Tip: Signs of a bad boob job: there’s too much space in between the breasts, one is noticeably higher than the other, or the nipples point in different directions.
Step 7: Investigate their softness
Real breasts are soft. Fake ones look hard—and feel hard. Just be careful how you find that out.
Step 8: Don’t stare
Whether the breasts you encounter are real or fake, try not to stare at them. Or, before you know it, you’ll be talkin’ to the hand.
