Check out this gallery of vintage French quack breast-enlargement devices powered by the water power from your sink! I don’t have enough French to evaluate all of the advertising claims in these vintage advertisements; I see a lot of “massosein” and a little bit of “développé” and “embellis” and quite a bit of “affirmis” but I don’t have the linguistic nuance to tell just how wildly over-the-top the false claims were for this doohickey. Knowing how similarly-useless devices were marketed in English, I’m assuming these ads are screamingly fraudulent by today’s standards, but that’s just a guess:

I’m also not sure just how old these ads might be, although I suspect someone familiar with the way French postal addresses have changed over time could probably peg it for us in the comments within a few decades.
