We should also take a step back and think of all the women who do not fit into the 'barely legal' category, but wish they were able to.
starship
I only said under 18 because i know that that's what most of the world use to describe underage girls. the age of consent here is actually 16 and I think that's about right tbh. And anyway it's usually the less borderline ages that the type of porn I was thinking of tries to emulate- like 13year olds or younger who've barely reached puberty. I know a lot of men like the whole dressing up in school uniform 'you've been a naughty girl' kind of thing, but trying to replicate child porn to the extent that it looks realistic is a whole different ball game as far as i'm concerned.
But then again you guys are right and there is a lot about porn I disagree with. Not the idea of porn, just the way a lot of it's executed and how there's so much stuff available to people that leaves them with completely distorted views on sex (whole 'nother thread, i know, i know...)

ahh.

today I went on a trampoline and whilst my friend was desperately clutching her boobs I was able to let my arms (and not my boobs) swing free. woo. 1-0 to small boobies

;)Love it!!



"the fact that people find stuff like that funny does seem to me like a sure sign of the coming apocalypse.

But anyways, what my point was, somewhere back there, was that if porno is that messed up and that far away from reality, I don't think we smallies should take it personally that small boobs get stuck in the barely legal category, when the whole thing is usually pretty offensive to women in general."


Good points.

My biggest beefs (no pun intended) with porn is:

-Excessive airbrushing, exaggerations, etc. that perpetuate body images, etc. that just aren't realistic (but some people actually think they are)*
-When someone would rather have sex with their hand and a magazine than a living, breathing willing partner. That's fucked up.

*Case in point: Crazy 1st BF who actually thought all the fake and misogynistic crap they printed in those cheap/trashy mags was real.
koffeewitch
On the whole airbrushing thing... I'm always blown away when I pick up European magazines (like for knitting patterns) and I have this sudden culture shock when I see that the models have visible moles, birth marks, and pores on their skin. They have dimples in their knees and hair on their forearms and all kinds of suspiciously human features. I have become so accustomed to air-brushing that I am momentarily shocked to see "real" human bodies! How totally fucked up is THAT?!
buttercups
Karategrrl, that is my exact problem with porn: it " perpetuates body images, etc. that just aren't realistic (but some people actually think they are)*" If porn showed more regular people with a variety of body types, I wouldnt feel so offended or bothered by it My main problem with porn (besides that fact that it is almost completely male-centered) is that it does promote these body image ideals that are impossible to live up to, but a lot of guys believe that real women look like that. They have come to expect us to have giant plastic boobs and tiny waists, and child-like va-jayjays. And the thing that really bothers me is that most of the men in porn are not attractive (at least in my opinion). It is always some ugly dude who happens to have a big dick with some stereotypically "beautiful" woman. Porn makes me feel bad about myself because I will compare myself to those women, expecting I'm supposed to look like them, but of course thats impossible. I'm small, have tiny boobs to match my small frame, cellulite on my ass, short legs, a bit of a tummy, I'm a natural woman who has not undergone any plastic changes. But I hate how porn makes that abnormal. And would the majority of guys find my body attractive? Probably not. But if porn didn't reinforce these unrealistic body standards than guys would be at least used to natural female bodies and maybe they would be more like to find someone like me to be not totally unfortunate-looking. Of course it isn't only porn that upholds these unrealistic body standards, its our whole culture, but it pisses me off and I always wonder how I would have done if we didn't live in this world where fake is passed off as real all the time. I just want to see some normal people goddamnit!
karategrrl
buttercups, you are so totally on the money with all you said, though I do argue with just one thing.

As much as men can annoy and, frankly, disgust the fuck out of me on a fairly regular basis, I know that not all of them are assholes who want plastic barbies, and many men do know that there's a lot of fake shit going on. Unfortunately, I think men with a sense of REALITY on this topic are in the minority (and today's boys and teens DO get warped perceptions), but they are out there.

"And would the majority of guys find my body attractive? Probably not. "

I've seen pics of you, girlfriend, and you have that cute hotness (or is it hot cuteness?) thing going on, big-time. I would think a hella lotta guys would knock down the door to get groovy with you/have a relationship with you, just as you are, and would prefer you to some cyborg-like, implanted, surgically altered half-human blowup doll. So there. tongue.gif And I say that with love.


And EWWWW yes, most of the people in porn ARE just plain gross. Often the men are just there to act out what the male viewer wishes he were doing--living vicariously, lube in palm.

Yes to the last sentence. As to the question, I think that a lot of guys who we hear dissing normal women's bodies, they're just doing it as a sort of one-upmanship among their buddies, the point being to out-macho each other. "I'm more hetero-manly than you," kind of thing. Public performance vs private behavior. Not that that excuses it. I just mention it because so much of what passes for "being a man" in our culture is that kind of alpha performative dogma-enforcing shit. Men who like out-of-the-dogma beauty often won't say so because of the social risks.
nbdx0645
Are you guys on the same internet I'm on? I can find a fair amount of 'average Joe and Betty-Sue' porn. I used to let large tit porn get me down. I used to seek it out so I could feel bad about myself and I used to be incredibly jealous over 'breasted females' (yes, I gave them a label.) Perhaps some porn stars would be happy to hear that they make women all over the nation feel terribly inadequate, but I'd bet that some porn stars would be incredibly upset to hear the same news. In fact, some women pose to reveal normal body types -- and receive great appreciation. Men comment about how great their 'pixie tits' look or how they want to blow raspberries on their 'soft tummy.' One man commented on a pale girl who had large moles all over her body, 'You look like chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I want to eat you up!' You girls are looking for porn in all the wrong places!

I've been hanging out with a fairly open circle of friends lately, and they laugh at the cookie-cutter porn that has been discussed below. I feel that the "Playboy Model" era is becoming dated, and alt porn is forming its own identity. Porn is no longer a homogenized commodity; there are oodles of sites and spin-offs for different tastes, where stars blog about their experiences, become candid with their viewers, and facilitate discourse. It's a step in the right direction. I refuse to be jealous over an actress, and I'm not going to let other's expectations on the body get in my head. There's always going to be men who want the bimbo look. Same with the athlete, the school girl, the rubenesque, and so on.

This brings me to a third point, with 'men craving an idealized image.' I do not fully agree on this, either. There is a difference between a preference and being shallow. If a man likes slim women with large breasts, it is his preference. This, in itself, does not make him shallow. In order for him to be shallow, he has to denounce any and all women who do not comply with his standards. If porn taught me one thing...it's that over-generalizing is bad.

Bwahahahaha!! Pixie tits!!! I love it!!! I have pixie tits!! Long live pixie tits!!!!

nbdx, you are probably more of an authority on current porn than I am. I've been so disgusted by most of it in the past that I really don't seek it out anymore, and if what you're saying is true (about the diversity in porn), then I'm basing my opinions on old stuff. Another reason I generally don't seek it out is my concern about picking up all sorts of wacky computer viruses and pop-ups, which are common with many porn sites. If one of you posts a link to a hot small-breasted woman or mentions a small-breasted porn star, I'll check it out but generally I don't go there--in the past, anyway, it's been too scary. blink.gif


Total topic shift: Last week a male friend said that when he first met me, his first impression was that I looked like Milla Jovovich--same body type. I'm still flying high with that compliment!!!!!! Thought you all could appreciate that.
buttercups
Yeah I was going to say the same thing nbdx, I don't know much about current porn cause I've avoided it since it always made me feel bad. But pixie tits does rock! And thanks for the kind words Karategrrl!

I was watching True Life on Mtv last night, it was a new episode about 2 girls who hate their plastic surgery. One of the girls was a fitness trainer who got breast implants and she was suffering horribly from silicone poisoning. First of all, she was a 34 C before she got the implants. I hate seeing stuff like that, bc as much as I know that people have all sorts of insecurities and everything, I think getting implants when you're already that big is just being greedy (but thats me and my AAs talkin- so C's are huge to me)! I can at least understand getting your boobs done when youre my size, bc honestly theres not much more than a nipple there! But regardless, so she goes through the whole episode in agony, wondering if she'll ever be healthy again, and they take out her implants. Suddenly she is healthy again and looking great! I was so happy for her. Then she gets back into talking about how her breasts are way too small now and she goes for a consult for another procedure- the kind where the move the fat from your ass or somewhere and put it into your breasts (which I have to be honest I paid attention to bc that is definitely something I could go for haha). It was disappointing to see someone who was in so much pain earlier in the episode, then go through this wonderful transformation when she lost her implants, only to come out looking for something else and potentially putting herself back in harms way. yuck.
spot-on
See THAT is fucked up! Seriously she had all this pain from her implants, had them taken out and was honestly LUCKY that her health recovered (sometimes it doesn't when they remove the implants). So now she wants some other crazy procedure? Might I suggest a psychologist instead?

Smaller women generally have smaller boobs, women in fitness generally have smaller boobs as they have lower body fat. And the problem is when these women get implants they usually look ridiculous because of their small frames or low body fat. I've seen too many fake ones lately on smaller girls that have the 1/2 coconuts under the skin look. *shudder* not a good look at all! How can they think that looks better? Fucked up I tell ya!

nbdx0645
C's would be huge for me! I completely understand where you're coming from.

My heart really goes out to the woman who suffered from silicone poisoning. It's a real shame that she's going to try the fat-graft procedure. That type of surgery has a much longer recovery period (since two or more areas have received trauma.) I also believe that the body wants to go back to its natural equilibrium, so if she loses weight from her breasts, I doubt they'd return. It opens up a whole new set of worries. Also, can't the fat migrate to other areas of the body? I'm not well-read on this procedure.

Speaking of bad plastic surgery, have you ever seen this site? http://www.awfulplasticsurgery.com/categor...fore-and-after/
The category with the most "bad jobs" is, of course, breast implants. And many pics are of well to-do celebrities. Sad. sad.gif

Oh, if you don't mind me asking, who was the other woman who hated her plastic surgery procedure?
buttercups
Yeah it was really sad to see her ready to go under the knife again so soon. The other woman wanted another nose job. She got it, and was fine with it for a few days. Then she went back to not liking it again. Sometimes I wonder if I would be like that- if I fixed my boobs would I just fixate on another part of my body? Would nothing ever be good enough? Or if I fixed my boobs would it stop there and would I be able to end this struggle I'm having? Of course theres plenty of other areas of my body I don't like- I could list a million but I'll spare you all bc I acknowledge that alot of it is just pathetic at this point, but none of the other things that I really don't like about myself have seemed to bother me as much as my breasts. For whatever reason all those other parts seem "liveable", like I can live with that and even though I don't like it I don't feel crazy enough about it to have to change it. If i got my boobs done would these things become more important? I just dont know. I've asked myself this plenty of times and the answer I come back to is no, if I got my boobs done that would be it. But I guess you never really know. Maybe the reason I think that is because I feel like every other part of my body is average- like everyone elses. And this one part I feel "cheated" on, like its below average and thats why I want to change it. Don't get me wrong I'm a helluva lot better off than I was before I came here (much thanks to you all), but I still feel like changing this part is almost deserved because its not average and I feel entitled to average for some strange reason. Anyways, I'm way too much of a wuss to go under the knife, especially after watching this show. Not worth it. At least padded bras don't make you sick.

My friend had this. It was difficult in many ways, and she's back to where she was--her breasts shrank back.

I don't watch porn because when I've seen stuff in the past it's all been pretty disgusting rather than sexy imo. Realistic amature stuff appeals more but I'd rather just avoid porn altogether rather than trawling through loads of stuff that makes me feel crappy trying to find some of the ok stuff.

I never actually realised before that frankie sandford(british girl band member) had small boobs but look:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/artic...ie-Poynter.html
I love the pic with Jarvis Cocker
I'd only ever noticed how sexy she was. And so did others because she's No.4 in FHMs 100 sexiest women list (FHM= UK 'mens' magazine)

I also read today that Marks&Spencer are releasing a new bra that adds 2cup sizes using some kind of extra light padding. I think it's similar to what some of you have described at victoria secret? might have to give it a go out of curiosity...

And I don't know about safety etc but I definatly wouldn't go for the fat being sucked outta my ass to be pumped into my breasts- i love my bum too much:S

ha I was starting to wonder the exact same question!! And I also disagree with the idea that all men are somehow starting to crave this "idealized" image. The more commonplace the plastic image becomes, the less arrtactive it will seem to them. This is the way humanity has been for thousands of years. People want the things that seem unique and better and for the upper classes, then the lower and middle classes copy these things, then they become more common and the upper classes move on to something new and interesting. Fashion, beauty, design, all different kinds of trends have worked this way. Plastic surgery experienced a recent boom due to technological advances, and we are just starting to see the aftermath. It's already become such a huge topic of discussion that "natural" is coming back into style.

In the meantime, I don't know if you guys allow yourselves to becom familiar enough with western countercultre. For everything that is popular in the mainstream, there are plenty of folks who HATE it. Spend time with these people, on their websites, watching their movies and listening to their music instead of the mainstream. There's even many different subcultures - there's indie, punk, LGBT communities, activist communities, college communities, anarchists, and a ton of people who just don't care (OK I smooshed a lot of different kinds of categories into one list there, but you get the idea, there's lots of variety!). They are all a lot more interesting and a lot more fun than the mainstream, and a lot less focused on physical appearance.

Buttercups, I know you think you would be satisfied after one surgery.. but that's definitely not the common pattern. People get surgery because they place such a high value on their apearance they are willing to sacrifice health and money for it. It's addictive to be able to satisfy that physical need, and it's also temporary. Until you can stop judging yourself based on how you look, you won't be satisfied.

starship, thanks for posting the pic of Frankie Sandford. I normally hate one-shoulder dresses, but that one's gorgeous. It shows her off so nicely!
spot-on
Buttercups/Angie I think we also need to remember Breast Augmentation isn't a one surgery deal (unlike say a nose job) cos you need repeat surgeries to replace the implants every 8-10 years assuming that everything goes well in the first place!

Starship, great pics, love the dress! Never heard of her but my figure is pretty similar to hers so Yay! Though she has a smaller waist than me I think.

karategrrl
Wow, Frankie Sandford is really pretty. Love her dress and hair. And booblets!

I have to say, though, one thing that irks me is to see a nicely dressed woman who took the time to put herself together, with a guy who looks like a slob. Guys, there's a way to do a casual look without looking like an unwashed, just-rolled-outta-bed shmuck. I especially hate to see that when they're obviously on a date together. Have a little respect for your lady, dudes.

Hey ladies, just checkin in cause I'm having the summer-time bathing suit small boobie blues. Went to VS yesterday and tried on this bathing suit that I reallyyy wanted :

http://www2.victoriassecret.com/commerce/o...&rfnbr=2513

Needless to say, that is not at all what it looks like on me. I thought that bathing suit would be a good for a small bustie bc she has smallish boobs, but clearly not as small as mine. I looked completely flattened out like a pancake- with no curves whatsoever. Even my sister was like "wow, thats hideous". I'm sick of wearing the same miracle bra push-up bathing suit every year, and I'm too self-conscious to wear a regular triangle top bc honestly, I'm not even in a cup size. I just feel so bad about myself right now. I'm trying to get out of this funk, but I'm in an awful funk where all I can think about is how much I really want a boob job to just get me to that A cup. I just want to for once put on a bathing suit and not feel like I have no curves or anything whatsoever. I've been working out to get my stomach flatter (thats an uphill battle) but no matter what I do I just hate my body, and I can't change it. What I see in the mirror is just so ugly to me. I'm trying to ignore these feelings and get on with my life, tell myself its just boobs and who cares, but I envy girls who can just fill out a bathing suit top and don't have to dismiss every style bc they need mounds of padding to not feel embarrassed. serious boobie blues. : (

Hang in there, buttercups!

Swimsuit season is a struggle for most of us. I also worry about my titlets and my wobbly tummy and untrim thighs. (the list goes on). BUT I've found that the trick is to get a bathing suit that you think is awesome and you'll feel a bit better about yourself.

I like retro stuff, and this trend for one-pieces is a sign from heaven, IMHO. I have these suits:
In pink Look how hot it is on the small chested model! I adore this one, though I scoured the net for a sale and got it for a third of the price.
In red although this one, like all bandeaus, is a bit flattening. I try to correct this by using Braza swim pads.

Also, have you considered a monokini? They're very trendy, they offer coverage without sacrificing sexiness, and IMHO they ONLY look good on small busties. Here are some options:
Cute and cheap
Not so cheap.

Good luck!
buttercups
Thanks Crinoline, those are really pretty. I've always worn 2 pieces, maybe its time for a one-piece. I've just been feeling so insecure since the start of summer, which is my favorite season. I want to enjoy it, but I don't want to have to worry about feeling inadequate or my bf checking out all the boobs that are out and about and feeling like maybe he would prefer that to me. Bathing suit shopping always gets me down and then I start worrying about all these other things, like how much my bf would prefer a girl who could fill out a bikini on the beach. I just have to accept that even though I don't love how I look, that doesn't mean that he's not ok with it. *sigh *
auralpoison
OOOOOPS!
Aithinne
OMG ladies, I just realized I haven't been on here in for-ev-er! I missed you guys!

I'm on here for the same reason... yet again, and can't rant to anyone else. I've had another string of moronic people commenting on how I look like a child. Yesterday, I was 14 apparently. A few days ago, a guy actually said "I thought you had to be 13 to work here.. you look 10." Thanks, asshole. Then he has the balls to whip out the ol' "you'll appreciate it when you're older" thing. I wish I had the guts to fire back with "why don't you shut the fuck up until I'm 40 then." I think I'm just going to start doing the glare-and-walk-away routine. If they want to be rude, then why can't I? I'm sick of holding it in and then spewing my frustrations on the internet. I'm really getting sick of feeling like a pedo's wet dream. Why must people feel the need to comment on my childish face? As if I don't look at myself in the mirror every fucking day! I had no idea I look 10, thanks for pointing it out. Ass.

Getting my hair cut in a few weeks. I think I'm going to absolutely stress that I want my haircut to at least attempt to make me look older than jailbait.

In the meantime, if anyone wants my sickeningly cute chipmunk cheeks (which I blame as the culprit for all these comments), they are welcome to come to Colorado and saw them off my face. You are welcome to take them.

Where's my bazooka? I'm going to start shooting people and it will be fantastic.

Anyway, I missed y'all and hope everyone is doing well and thinking positive boobie thoughts.
karategrrl
OMG, I missed you all!!

Ah yes...bathing suit season...terrifying for us all (well, at least those of us not augmented, altered, nipped or tucked in some way).

I agree on the monokini thing. I bought two of them last year whereas I've always worn bikinis. I think they actually are more flattering--kind of draws the eye up and makes the legs look longer whereas bikinis (especially the low-slung hipster bottoms--which is practically all you can find these days) chop you into three horizontal chunks.

I know, I am annoyed with boobie envy too. I met my brother's neighbors' daughters--who were 16 and 19--and they both had BREASTS. One was wearing the most beautiful lacy bra (which was hanging out the back of her dress) and I was so jealous and annoyed. All I can wear that fits me well are the teen girls' ones from Target--mostly solid colors. AAArrgh!!!! I am fucking 41!!! Can I, once in my life, for even a day, just know what it feels like to have BOOBAGE???!!

Aithinne, be rude. Who gives a fuck? Yes, if they are going to be rude, be rude back. Or be creative and try some other strategies. One of my faves lately is to "agree and exaggerate." In a case such as the one you described you might say, "Oh yes, they let me out of day care early to come to work! My mommy will pick me up later!" or some such shit. Maybe not everyone would agree with answering rudeness with rudeness, but grrl, try a few things and see what works for you. Glaring works, too--speaks volumes sans words. If you can't think of anything fast enough, you can always ask someone to repeat themselves--gives you a few more seconds to process, and often people realize their dumbness when they have to repeat it. Hope this helps. Hang in there!!

Did anyone see the current issue of Oprah magazine? They have the usual summer swimsuit feature, but I was totally stoked to see a 66-year-old model as the "small busted" model. She looked great, and the suit was beautiful. I was inspired that she's reached 66 and not succumbed to implantation pressure.

Titlets!?" Ha! Love it.

Oh yes, for those of you who like the retro-ish style suits, Lands' End has some nice ones.
crinoline
I just wanted to pop in and say that Target has a variety of retro swimsuits and monokinis, some of which are direct knockoffs of the suits I linked. It's a great option to try out a style without committing to a $50-150 price tag!

Retro bandeau knockoff
Juicy Couture knockoff - many colors to choose from!
This monokini's cute on the small breasted model!
For small busties ONLY!
Trust me on this one, I tried it on alongside my C cup friend and it looked ridiculous on her, cute on me. I didn't get it since I have too much junk in my trunk for the teensy back coverage, but it definitely was very sexy!

Also -how freakin' hard is it to find a completely unlined sheer underwire bra below a 34B-C?
I have one that I bought ages ago, I wore it the other day under a thin tee and Crinoboy went nuts over it. His eyes were literally glued to my chest all night! He likes the nip peek, and the jiggle factor. I like that the underwire sort of "rounds them out", unlike a wireless mesh bra - of which I have found several.
The underwire is really the key here. I'd be fine with any thin material, it doesn't have to be mesh, but there seems to be NOTHING available below $60!! And I do not need $60 worth of support!

Any suggestions, IBTC? I'm looking for a 32A, but a 32B would do in a pinch. 34 is usually way too big, you know when you lift your arms and the whole contraption slips up to your collarbones? Yeah.

Something like this, but, you know, cheap.

Hey all,
For swimsuits, I don't know how you feel about ruffles, but I really like this: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catal...;navAction=jump

Also, we can pull off triangle cups really well. We simply need less fabric. Get a micro bikini top that fits snugly and then buy a separate elsewhere (in a color you like.) http://wickedweasel.com/en-us/bikinis Look at how skimpy some of those bottoms are! Whew! I like doing mismatch swimsuits. It makes the look fun and more relaxed. Remember: clothes that do not fit look bad on all shapes and sizes. if you'd rather purchase a triangle top from a store, look for one that has 'fixed' cups (ones that do not move). I also opt for suits that clasp in the back, rather than tie. A snug fit will stop you from pulling and tugging at your swimsuit.

For sheer underwire bras, I did some research. I own this bra, it's a super-soft mesh. It runs a bit small in the band/cup. I got a 34 A and it works well for me. http://www.lindasonline.com/duet-timpa-dem...16449-pink.html

Here's a different version by the same brand: http://lulalu.com/search.asp?Mode=Product&...2&PageNum=1
A soft mesh bra: http://www.lilleboutique.com/shop/lingerie...esh-plunge-bra/

On a final note, it's hard to find beautiful sheer bras w/underwire in all sizes. I think I saw only 1 bra that I wanted to link, but started at 32B.

Thanks Crinoline, those are really pretty. I've always worn 2 pieces, maybe its time for a one-piece. I've just been feeling so insecure since the start of summer, which is my favorite season. I want to enjoy it, but I don't want to have to worry about feeling inadequate or my bf checking out all the boobs that are out and about and feeling like maybe he would prefer that to me. Bathing suit shopping always gets me down and then I start worrying about all these other things, like how much my bf would prefer a girl who could fill out a bikini on the beach. I just have to accept that even though I don't love how I look, that doesn't mean that he's not ok with it. *sigh *

spot-on

Ditto to this! I tried a 34 on in VS that was unpadded, and loved it, but the band was too loose, looked and asked and NOPE no 32's, fuck! Seriously we aren't all the same size! Like you I'd love the underwire to hold what I have in place, without the thick padding, sometimes some nippleage is good wink.gif

I hear ya on the bra lifting! VS woman tried to tell me I was a 34" band, um no way, the bra was on the TIGHTEST setting new and it still moved when I lifted my arms up! And you want me to buy this? I wasn't born yesterday! I get it, you're there to make a sale, but it ain't happening with an ill fitting bra! blink.gif

Has anyone else noticed the less there is to a bra/bikini the more expensive it is? Screwed up that is!

Also for those wondering about small breasts and bikini/monokini one of my fav smalled boobs celebs Mila ROCKS them both!

As you can tell, I have today off. First time in a while to get on Bust and check out what's been happening. Been busy as usual and loving the small boobs smile.gif Summer rocks! I am so much happier this year! I bought a pair of "daisy dukes" as my guy calls em, and they are size 3 smile.gif and a little loose on the waist I might add wink.gif I plan on rocking them with over a bikini this summer. Already worn them out and about shopping and eating etc and didn't feel the least self conscious, yay. I think I am finally feeling happy in my body at 38 yrs old than I have felt all my life. Still get the odd pang of jealousy when I see someone with more than ample boobage, like they got my share, but it soon passes the next race I run or the next time I want to do jumping jacks without giving myself a black eye smile.gif This is MY body, and I will ROCK IT!

As for summer swimwear - Triangle bikini for me everytime, mixin and matchin with booty boyshorts and skimpy bottoms for sunbathing/swimming. I love the triangle style, suits my body. I have a couple of triangle ones from last year and two halter style bikini's from 2008 but those are too big now (both in the top and bottoms). Have to say the triangle suits me better, and if anyone wants a CHEAP and CHEERFUL triangle one go with Ocean Pacific, theirs rock! Their small is just enough to cover smallies and with enough strap length for any band size smile.gif Plus cheap so even if you just wear it in the backyard, worth it! They ran around $7.50 each for separates last year at Walmart. Hmm maybe I need to make a trip to Walmart and get a new one anyways! lol! I don't like one piece suits, they flatten me out, plus I think bulges are more noticable kwim?

Having said all this I meet an old friends new wife this weekend. She's a BIG girl, but big all over and very well endowed from what I've seen in photo's. Mantra to self: I will NOT focus on her breasts and my lack of!!! Depending on the weather I think skinny T and denim mini skirt with flip flops for the Santa Monica/beach outing smile.gif

oh and as an aside, on freecycle last week I picked up a bag of teen clothes for free. Not all were my style but I kept about 10 tees, skinny hugging tees that show what I have to perfection wink.gif Having the body of a teenager can be cool!

I don't do any suits or clothing with ruffles.

I would, however, do Milla Jovovich. wink.gif HOTTIE!!!

I hear ya. I love ruffles sometimes (on others) but my personal aversion to them has to do with the fact that anything too long, flowy, ruffly or generally with too much material tends to overwhelm my small frame. (I sometimes get jealous of large women, who can rock that kind of stuff).

I like thrift shops b/c you can try out different styles than you might usually, with a minimum of financial investment. wink.gif
spot-on
Totally agree! I love seeing other people pull of styles I don't like on myself, and yep thrift shopper here! I've gotten some pheasant style tops for a few $$ that I wouldn't normally buy, but they were dirt cheap at the thrift store so why not?

where are my small busties? I miss you!

been in bathing suit shopping hell for the past few weeks. i think the problem is that i just hate trying them on, but then of course if i don't then they'll never fit. ive also let myself go lately bc i just got a new job and ive been working hard, no time for exercise- or at least that's my excuse since when i come home i just look for the couch. gotta get back in the game.

hope all is well with everyone <3

still here smile.gif i went to target today to try to find some new summery tops. most i tried on were too big, in the smallest size available, but i did buy this top, with the express purpose of wearing it sans bra. looks quite cute, too, if i do say so myself.

i definitely hear you on the bathing suit thing. so many stores only stock one or two or any given item in the right size for me, if it comes that small at all, and by the time i find it they're gone, so i face a store full of stuff that isn't even available to me. last year after much searching i finally got a cute set with a twisted bandeau top (with a removable halter strap, that i definitely use!) and sort of boy-short bottoms with cinched sides. i wouldn't have even thought of a bandeau top, but i liked the bottoms and it matched, so i tried it and it worked. boy shorts are hard to find, in my experience, but i think they help me look a little curvier. i'm just about to order another set; boy shorts and a halter top. i generally don't have a lot of luck with stuff fitting well, so i may quite likely end up sending it back, but we'll see.

hey busties,

i'm a small boobied girl and just wanted to pop in. i like my small bewbs but i've gotten so used to push up bras i feel self conscious "free balling it" now, and i never used to. does that happen to anyone else? i used to be so proud of the fact that i didn't need a bra to keep my girls under control, but now it's like i feel deflated without extra umph.

enfermera, i'd love to find a bathing suit that has an underwire, no padding. it seems like most bathing suits for small girls don't give any consideration to the bust, they just stretch a peice of fabric over and it squashes my chest. i don't like that. i'm thinking the new "retro" styles will be flattering though and i'm waiting to find a good one i can try on.

auralpoison
I just wanted to stick my head in & offer up a link to some really great retro style suits at ModCloth. Several of them are really adorable & I think would be quite flattering.

hey all, ive been pretty depressed recently so treated myself to a bit of retail therapy yesterday and even managed to get a few bras without it making me even more depressed. I got a really pretty pink and lilac bra and a bikini which were both size 34A from H&M (and in the sale!).I was suprised at how well they fitted me- their sizes must come up kinda small i think. I've never bought bras from H&M but it's definately going to be my new place to treat myself. I also got a really pretty pale blue set from primark in a 34a which i didnt think would fit me because it looked kindof big to me but it was only 4 and to die for so i got it anyway- and it fits!
Oh and good news for all UK busties- PRIMARK NOW STOCKS AA BRAS IN THE ADULTS LINGERIE DEPARTMENT!!! The 4 bra&knicker set that I bought came in 32aa. There were no 34aa(boo) and although theyre probably still aimed at teenagers (who want to be the same as grown ups and are no longer satisfied with cotton training bras) I still think it's good news and maybe in the future it'll be alot easier to get smaller bras in pretty designs on the high street:)smile.gif. I guess there's an upside of kids growing up too fast afterall...

About the bikini that i bought; the top came in cup sizes rather than clothing sizes which i found far more flattering than other bikinis ive had. it was padded, but not heavily as a lot of bras are now. It just had those flat foam inserts that you used to get. but even without lots of padding it gave me a good lift just from the design an cut. happy customer:)

On a less postive note- Whilst I'm happier & more comfortable with my body clothed/in my underwear, i still detest my breasts naked:(. I don't think it's just to do with the size, it's just the shape and everything. they dont look like breasts and just look lost on my ribcage. especially where I'm fair skinned so my nipples are quite pale too; i just feel as though you dont look at my chest and automatically think 'those are boobs' like you would with other women (of all sizes). gah

Nonetheless i have been making a conscious effort to wear unpadded bras more and only bottle out when i'm wearing something tight/clingy that makes my figure really obvious. baby steps!

I love coming in here and looking at photos or reading descriptions of the gorgeous clothes y'all find. Like how a beautiful ring setting complements and shows off the jewels.
