Be Yourself (But Be Yourself More With A Boob Job!)

Love your body! Lose ten pounds by summer! Embrace your curls! How to get the perfect blowout! Mixed messages in women's mags are as chronic as our UTIs, but rarely do they appear on the exact same page. Until now! In the latest installment of Allure's "Mood News" roundup, readers are treated to some very curious emotional enlightenment. Such as: Did you know that ever since the 1970s, people's need "for social approval" has stayed fairly low? Because as divorce and crime rates go up, conformity to social norms dip and it becomes "more important to just be yourself"? But then... this! "Getting breast surgery tends to improve women's mental health, two studies suggest." (Sigh. Sometimes women's magazine editors make it so damn easy.) Anyway, after the jump, see how the two stories literally stack up.
