reconstructive surgery

Madame Coco had "aesthetic enhancement surgery" recently. I love the shape and wire curls on the dress form, but have had to push and pull and move wire parts around to get her to have a real human shape. I never was happy with how the tanks looked on her, maybe because I've been staring at my own figure for 36 years, and that's what seems normal to me. It finally hit me that I could 'enhance' the way she was shaped the same way that people do, except without cosmetic surgery. I grabbed my strapless corset bra from my wedding ensemble, and inserted some gel-filled liners into the cups, and Voila! She is now a 36 C. All of the clothes look so much better on her, but in some of the pics, she actually does look a little too bosomy. Madame Coco makes me so happy, and I love that I don't have to pay someone to model anything. She's always ready and willing to work. I LOVE how the Contessa wide belt came out, and it makes Madame Coco look so elegant and autumnal.

I am going to do a series of these for fall/winter. Caio girls!
