Hi. Evening primrose oil has many wonderful benefits for women-- including pms help, hair and skin benefits. SOME women report a modest increase in bust size. This is from taking epo orally. Rubbing it on your chest won't do anything except soften your skin.

I had benign lumps in my breasts and the doctor suggested I take two Evening of Primrose oil tablets each day. One-two months later they were gone! I continue to take them (when I think of it) to ensure they don't return. If there is any truth to the "breast size increase" thing, I'll have to double my dose! I can't say I noticed any difference.

The only way to increase your bust size is to either "gain weight" or get an augmentation. I had mine augmented when I was 38 after breast-feeding 4 children. My breasts had no fatty tissue left, and looked like poached eggs, [I didn't even fit in a "push up" bra] before that, I had size c-d breasts. At this point, I wasn't even wearing an A cup. These things to know, augmemtation is not guaranteed, mine lasted 5 years, and one breast "broke" and had to be repaired, [at a substantial cost], now, because of scar tissue, although my breasts look fine when I am dressed or wearing a bra, without them, I have one breast higher than the other, and will probably have to have that one fixed too. It has only been 4 months since my "re-surgery." Breast augmentation is expensive and comes with risks. I personally wouldn't recommend it, unless you really had some "ugly" breasts. I felt like I had lost my breast, [they were originally pretty full]. Good luck to you, in your decision, and make sure that you get more than one doctors opinion, and check their records!!!!!
