My mother had her breasts ironed when she was a girl. The same thing had been done to her own mother, my grandmother, and to my great grandmother as well. It was a traditional practice, which was handed down through the generations. As soon as a girl started developing breasts, then the girl’s mother would start regularly ironing her breasts. It was done about once a week and maybe more often.
