Bust size

Watching a news item about faulty breast implants, I wondered “what has happened to feminism”?
The young and attractive woman having trouble with a particular faulty breast implant was asked why she had had them inserted in the first place. Her reply was astonishing in this year of 2013: she had not felt like a woman. She felt that breast implants (presumably an increase in size) would make her more confident and more womanly.
Have we learned nothing in the fight of the past years that this young and attractive woman and presumably others, felt that their bust size defined them as women?
Where have we gone wrong?
What have we learned?
