Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day. No, this isn’t a joke. Inflatable breasts really have appeared on several east London rooftops.
Five boobs of various sizes and skin tones popped up yesterday for Mother’s Day, as part of awareness-raising by women’s tech company Elvie. The start-up launched a wearable breast pump in September and its #FreeTheFeed campaign aims to make more British women feel comfortable breastfeeding in public.
The boobs can be found bobbing over Shoreditch Grind, Village Underground, Columbia Road, Ely’s Yard and Bethnal Green Road until the end of today, when they’ll sadly be deflated and Shoreditch will return to having its regular number of massive tits. Wahey!
