Nobel Prize-winning scientist says he never endorsed bra promising bigger boobs

A Chinese company that claims its bra uses graphene to make your boobs bigger has been rumbled by a Nobel Prize winning scientist.

Jinan Shengquan Group says that it uses graphene — a material recently discovered by British experts — in its underwear.

Graphene is 100 times stronger than steel and its super conductive properties have been hailed by scientists — with experts saying the material could revolutionize electronics and construction.

But the Chinese manufacturers claimed it could heighten frisky feelings and maximize the female bust, South China Morning Post reported.

Adverts splashed across Chinese newspapers stated that the graphene in its underwear retains heat, eliminates odor and kills bacteria, too.

It offers no scientific evidence to support this, but in its promotional material, Jinan Shengquan Group quoted Sir Andre Geim, who won a Nobel Prize for his work on graphene in 2010, describing the line of bras and knickers as a “miracle.”

Geim has since spoken out, claiming that he never made the endorsement.

He said: “It’s absolutely shameful for them to use my name in their marketing campaign without my permission and, more importantly, attributing such false statements to me.

Chinese restaurant claims boost from offering ‘bra size’ discounts

“I was curious to see ‘graphene underwear’ and inquired what graphene could do to improve [the product].

“I was told that because the material is ‘very black’ it retains heat better.

“I pointed out that this contradicted basic science because dark surfaces emit heat better, not retain it.”

Geim said the company sent him a pair of socks and boxers to try out by way of apology.

“I never put them on because their textile felt low quality and uncomfortable.”

Graphene lingerie might be out the window, but it’s very important to make sure you’re wearing the right size to save yourself from a boob blunder.

The movement of your breasts when walking could reveal if you are wearing the right size bra and there could be serious consequences if you’re getting it wrong.
