Is the term perfect breasts valid?
Like our bodies, breasts come in all shapes and sizes and what constitutes the perfect breast is an individual choice. For any breast to be perfect, it must first have the capacity to perform the function that nature intended. In other words, it must be able to produce milk.

What each of us thinks of as perfect is totally subjective as we all have a different taste, but generally we look to what is aesthetically pleasing among the wide variety of sizes and shapes making a single answer unobtainable. We don't know if the ideal breasts are related to what's know as 'the divine proportion' of 1 to 1.618 as facial features have been related too, maybe someone needs to work on this.
The human growth element
As most of us suckled at the breast, it was a source of life, it gave us nourishment for which we are subconsciously grateful. We have a natural affection and even a sense of awe at the ability of the breasts to produce milk. These devices of lactation and comfort are world wonders which we either take for granted, or we are so confused at all the opinionated bullshit that dictates our view.
Sociology; Power and politics
But nowadays breast feeding is secondary to using our breasts to attract attention, enhance appearance and self-confidence regardless of our walk in life. Breasts as part of the human body have become politicised and many dressing like Halle would be prosecuted or persecuted in some countries.

Socially we know breasts are attractive, you must have noticed how especially men like to look, and you know that showing a little cleavage gets attention. Men's attention is a combination of biology, the deep subconscious choosing of a mate with the capacity to nature babies.
Secondly, it's not just guys who love a nice rack so they can indulge in physical gratification, women do as well. Thirdly, being seen with a well built woman lifts their ego a treat and in those early years of dating and perhaps marriage, displaying the right amount of cleavage and perhaps a promise ensures all those chores are completed.
We all know from our TV and movies that nice breasts, are great assets for any star, so lets consider a few:
Christina Hendricks from the TV show Mad Men stuns audiences with her all natural 38-DDD boobs and a 5.8" stature keeping it all in proportion. This curvy role model has been praised as being an ideal shape for women and Christina has commented that the media are too focused on women's bodies and not their actual talents. But a 2010 study by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons attributed part of a 10% increase in the number of British women receiving breast augmentation surgery to her influence. The US Air core reportedly want to paint her in the nose of their planes as they have don with other famous models in the past.
Christina reportedly said that "I'm learning to celebrate what I was born with, even though it's sometimes been inconvenient. No doubt this is due to shopping and finding comfortable bras and then she has a heap of accusers insisting that they have to be fake and her slightly fuller figure is out of place in Hollywood. Christina's Advice to men.
All breasts are perfect, made as 'God' intended to suit our character and function.
The level of women's dissatisfaction with their breasts has given rise to breast enhancement to an entire industry.

- Breasts should not be too hard and not too soft.
