Carol Ann Doda is a former topless stripper in San Francisco, California who was active in the 1960s through 1980s, one of the first of the era. In 1964 Doda made international news, first by dancing topless at the city's Condor Club, then by enhancing her bust from size 34 to 44 through silicone injections. Her breasts became known as Doda's "twin 44s" and "the new Twin Peaks of San Francisco." Doda attended the San Francisco Art Institute and worked as waitress and lounge entertainer at the Condor Club. On June 19, 1964, when Doda was 26 years old, the Condor's publicist, "Big" Davy Rosenberg gave Doda a topless swimsuit designed by Rudi Gernreich. She performed topless that night, the first noted entertainer of the era to do so. The act was an instant success. Two months after she started her semi-nude performances, the rest of San Francisco's Broadway was topless, followed soon after by entertainers across America.
