Ask A Woman Who Knows
(story submitted anonymously, by a 34 year-old Chestist)
My Message: When ever I see stories about young women even girls wanting or getting breast enlargements thinking it will somehow improve their life, I think, why do they never talk to the women who grew up with large breasts. Their response might suprise them.
I round up my height to 5'2' and currently wear a 32 DD. I've been wearing a bra since the 3rd grade. As a young girl I was automatically considered a slut, because apprently if you have large breasts it must be true. So I tried to hide it with large shirts. To this day I still feel uncomfortable wearing tight shirts. Not to mention it's not easy to find a reasonably priced bra that is a 32 DD. You can't just go into Target.
And chances are its not going to be "sexy" looking at least if your goal is to have them remain in your bra when you bend over to tie your shoe. Large breasts tend to prevent you from wearing certain clothes–button up shirts, no way; strapless, you'll do a lot of top pulling up; swim suits, find a specialty store and expect to pay about $200; sports bras, look forward to a vest type thing unless you don't mind bouncing everywhere; tight shirts that form what I call the guitar strings right between your chest. Oh and did i mention the back aches involved with large breasts?
If you think big breasts are the answer, check with a woman that came by them naturally, you may just find they would rather be flat chested. [end of story.]
One of the things we like most about this story is that, whether you agree or don't, whether you want big boobs, small boobs, no boobs and wonder why we're talking about boobs…it illustrates the idea at the heart of OOC…if you share your story, you can help change someone else's. And that's cool.
So here's the question…have you ever been talked into or out of something by asking someone who knew? What, why, who, how? #discuss. X
