The creators of the Mark Eden breast augmentation device promised women a luxurious bust in just a few weeks of exercise. A company that was based in San Francisco, gave hope to ladies who dreamed of a beautiful bust without much effort. Jack and Eileen Feather, successful entrepreneur spouses from California, actively promoted the unusual device. American women's magazines of the 60s and 70s were full of ads for miracle devices.Vintage miracle device for breast augmentation, the effect of which was believed by hundreds of thousands of womenIncluded with the Mark Eden device was an instruction manual with sets of exercises for breast augmentation. A small plastic device with a spring has never been shown in advertising. Women's magazines only published laudatory articles with photos of busty beauties who allegedly experienced the effect of a miracle device.

The product description in the first manual was so laudatory that later the developers decided to slow down a little so that they would not be considered scammers.
