Lenina "Linse Kessler" Christiansen (born March 31, 1966) is a Danish television personality, actress and businesswoman. Linse Kessler is known for her ownership of "Scandinavia's Largest Silicone Breasts" and for being the older sister of Danish professional boxer Mikkel Kessler. Kessler is currently the star of her own reality series, Familien fra Bryggen.


Kessler gained popularity in Denmark through her acquisition of breast implants. Beginning in 1991, Kessler began getting breast augmentation surgeries. Her first set of implants augmentated each of her breasts to 340 cc of silicone. Kessler gradually continued to make her breasts bigger throughout the 1990s, from 340 cc to 420 cc, then 800 cc, then 1,200 cc and finally 1,600 cc.[2] In 1999, Kessler was featured in Extrem, a Danish TV documentary series, in which she is followed and called "Denmark's Largest Breasts".

In 2004, Kessler made her acting debut in a Danish mainstream crime film, Pusher II: With Blood on My Hands. In the film, Kessler plays a minor role as Jeanette, a gangster's ex-wife and prostitute, who is targeted for murder. In 2005, Kessler reprised her role as Jeanette in Pusher 3, in which her character is now a pimp involved in sex trafficking. In 2009, Kessler played another minor role as a seductive mistress in Nedenunder, a short film directed by Anne-Grethe Bjarup Riis.

In 2008, Kessler announced that she would be having breast reduction surgery, to remove 400 cc of silicone from her implants. According to Kessler, she wanted to make her implants smaller because of her retirement from modeling.[3]

In 2013, she appeared in the single "Lidt for blond" credited to Ronni Garner featuring Linse Kessler. The single charted in the Tracklisten, the official Danish Singles Chart making it to number 17 in its first week of release.[4]
