Made My Day

(story submitted by Flat Girl, a Chestist)

Here's a happy tale, from what we presume is one of our younger readers.  But no matter your age, feeling good about being you is what we're all about.  Here's "Flat Girl" speaking her truth:

I'm finally going to say this. I'm flat-chested. Very. 32-A!

I've always been tormented for how puny I am. My sister used to call me a 'concentration camp kid'. I'm not anorexic. I'm just tiny. Women with big breasts always seem to get the men. Always. Not just in movies, in real life too!

Then one day, I was shopping for bras. I was embarrassed because I had to buy the smallest ones. But a woman working at the store came up to me and was so nice.  She told me not to be embarrassed, and helped me pick out some really cute ones. She told me she used to be just like me, afraid to change in the locker room. Then she pointed out how many beautiful women are flatchested too! She made me feel so good, now I show off my chest like they were double D's. It just really made my day :) {end story}

Coming to terms with who we are and who we're not (and putting aside the wonders of modern cosmetic surgery…) is a key to happy in our book.  Have you ever found yourself accepting – and maybe even learning to love – something about you which you hadn't been able to before?  What?  How?  Why?  Come on and share your story – maybe you can change someone else's for the better.

    So glad someone was able to make you feel better about yourself! I am super flat, but I’m okay with it. I had a hard time in the beginning of H.S., but then I realized it didn’t really matter and I could wear certain clothes other people couldn’t! Plus no one was going to use me for my boobs!

    When I was growing up I went from flat to DD between 9th and 10th grades. I HATED my breasts. I could not run or jump, my back hurt, and I felt so uncomfortable with the attention I got. Even then I knew it was not about me but about THEM.

    When I was 17 I convinced my parents to let me get a reduction. Best decision for me.

    I’ve had my nose, chin, and boobs done. I do not think plastic surgery is for everyone though I am so glad I have done it.

    There were “medical reasons” for my nose and chin. My boobs were all about cosmetics, and I really spent the time to make sure I was doing it because I wanted to have a different shape and proportion then I ever could if I didn’t do it. Never let anyone else’s opinion make these decisions for you.
