I think you guys are corrupting my little fragile mind, today before i got in the shower I was looking at myself in the mirror and talking to my booblets telling them that they are pretty and I loved them...then I realised what I was doing and decided its all your fault you strange people xD

Oh, this is just awesome beyond words! Your booblets--and you--are happier already for this self-lovin'.

As far as piercings, I do not personally care for them at all, but for some people they are a turn-on--to have themselves, and to experience others'.

I did it!!! I got my nipples pierced woot!!....all I can say is ouch though D= very painful and they're bleeding atm but it will be worth it. I figured might aswell do it now while i'm feeling good about my breasticles.... only problem was, the piercer was my exboyfriends friend....greattt soon everyone will know about my new jewelery lols. Nevermind =D

Congratulations, SkinDeep - that's so awesome! I've always wanted to do it but I'm too chicken. My bf and I both love the way it looks - he had his done once but couldn't get them to heal properly - and think it looks especially good on small breasts. Please post updates about how the healing goes, how you like them, etc...I'll live vicariously through you! smile.gif

At the moment they are quite sore so i cant really tell any difference but when i was researching them it did say that they are more sensitive when aroused. They seem like they are healing well, they did say that small breasts heal faster than bigger breasts so thats another one for the smallies! Yay! I'll keep you all updated smile.gif x

hey all! i read an article today that really made me shake my head.

http://stophatingyourbody.tumblr.com/post/...ybe-a-100lbs-or

in it the girl describes how she literally cut open one of her breasts in attempt to try and permanently "stuff" them. i think that really says something about the pressure girls currently feel to have an ideal body. it really baffles me that she has such a beautiful figure and still has so much hatred towards her body.

this also brings me to another topic that has been bugging me. as you guys know i recently went through a difficult time with my weight due to health issues. i'm past it now. in fact, i've lost fifteen pounds so far this summer (and i did it the healthy way). but even though the scale says i'm fifteen pounds lighter, when i look in the mirror i see no difference. absolutely none. and this isn't the first time this has happened to me. when i did a season of cross country in high school i got comments on how i looked slimmer, but i saw no difference in my eyes. i just feel like it could turn into a viscious cycle where i'm never satisfied and could end up going to unhealthy measures or striving for an unhealthy weight for my frame.

my question is, has anyone else ever battled with a distorted self image? are there any exercises that help with this?
karategrrl
About that post...it says she tried to cut open one of her breasts but it hurt so bad she stopped (before she actually succeeded) and she still has the scar from the attempt. So thank god she didn't actually do it but yes, it is very sad. And even more so b/c I agree, she has a beautiful body (and her breasts look bigger than mine)! God, if she only knew how hot she is!!!!!

And now for a bit of comic relief...this has absoutely nothing to do with anything here, except maybe to provide you ladies with a laugh and distraction from boob obsession!

OK, I was browsing the SHYB tumblr, and I admit seeing some posts by girls with perfect bodies saying how much they hate how they look made me feel a bit down...

But then, I came across this:

Actually I think that nipple piercings look better on small breasts. I have mine for 10 years now and I still love them. They healed perfectly, never had any kind of problem or lost any sensitivity. I think they're sexy as hell!

secretsights, that tumblr is a keeper. Thanks for the link.

DeeRayy, I don't know if this'll help, but I thought it was interesting:

[My dietician] pointed me towards clinical studies showing the vast differences in brain functioning in subjects with body dysmorphia disorder. One study showed a neural pathway that suggested that when subjects with BDD looked in the mirror, parts of the brain associated with anxiety and emotional response became overactive, essentially hijacking the visual stimuli before it could be properly processed. They literally were seeing something different due to the way their brain was attempting to interpret the visual cues.

So, much like with obesity, involuntary physiological or chemical processes can be as or more influential than "will power" or other factors that really are within one individual's control. What I mean is, I hope you don't beat yourself up or blame yourself for needing to wrestle with this issue.

Hey ladies, please send me some small booblet love! I'm on vacation with the fam and literally as soon as we got there, my uncle looks at me and says "hey, did you finally grow a set?" because i was wearing one of the 2-cup sized padded bras. Said it right in front of the whole family as usual so that was a great way to start. And of course I'm the smallest girl in the bikini with my gorgeous DD'd sister (who wears the same bikini as me from VS and looks AMAZING in it) and i could really use some small boobie love sent over here.

Thanks for the link too secretsight, i love that girl whoever she is.

Ah, family vacations.

Is your uncle otherwise okay, or is this an isolated fuckhead comment? Because, forgive me, that was completely un-fucking acceptable. And I'd tell him so. Even better, embarasss him in front of everyone with a comment of your own. Like, can you say something in regard to his "growing a set," if you know what I mean?

Sending MUCH, Mucho MEGA boobie love to your beeeautiful, perky, gravity-defying, user-friendly booblets and nipplets!!

I'm gonna second KeraBear and say that his comment was totally creepy and gross. karategrrl is right, when he asked you if you had grown a set, you should have replied "i don't know uncle, what about you?".

And might I also say that I was in the same situation this weekend while at a lake with my cousin's family. my thirteen year old cousin looks like she's a D cup now and i had to try and ignore my insecurities as she walked around in a bikini top and shorts. i felt mighty embarrassed because she's six years my junior for pete's sake. but, my family never makes any comments about it because they know about my "issues" that i have with my body(thanks for telling everyone mom).

p.s.- i recently got diagnosed with bdd. so i know how much it fucking sucks sometimes when all you can do is obsess over your body. but just keep reminding yourself that the problem is not your body, it's the way you see your body that is the problem. and screw people like your uncle, they've got problems of their own. i'm definitely sending you positive boobie vibes. hang in there girl! and try your best to have some fun smile.gif

Yeah, there's still time in this trip to respond to that. I know SO well, though, how hard it is to respond with the perfect comeback when someone broadsides you--like, you just don't see it coming at all! Like someone else here said...Shit. Stirrer.

the problem is not your body, it's the way you see your body that is the problem. and screw people like your uncle, they've got problems of their own.

OMG, perfectly stated.

I love you, karategrrl!! You made Buttercups' breasts sound spectacular (and for good reason. They are!). Can you say a few words about mine?

Aw shucks! You love me, you love me! <3 Well, it's easy to say nice things about your booblets too, Kerabear!! (As I can about everyone's here!) My booblets told me that yours are senstiive, perky, adorable, lovable and sexy as hell! And the best part is they are connected to an intelligent lady who's a kickass fast runner--in no small <snicker> part due to her streamlined, built-for-speed breasticles who hold themselves happily high and tight whilst Kera smokes everyone on the running track. No black eyes for Kerabear!

How's that? wink.gif Oh, that was easy!

my thirteen year old cousin looks like she's a D cup now and i had to try and ignore my insecurities as she walked around in a bikini top and shorts.

Well, you can't ignore how you feel. It's a challenge for sure--I know!! Allow yourself to feel how you feel. Acknowledge your feelings. I won't get into a whole dissertation (unless anyone wants me to elaborate), but one thng I'm slowly wrapping my head around of late is that idea that the more we try to push something away, ignore it, avoid it, the more it sticks to us. Can you maybe acknowledge how you feel and then let release the feeling? Because, you know, as DeeRayy said, it's not your body that's the problem! You have every right to feel insecure sometimes but if feeling that way clings to you and makes you feel shitty, then that feeling is not serving you well. I KNOW it is not easy, and it also sounds counter-productive, but it's kind of one of those zen riddles--acknolwedging or even welcoming something you don't want can often defuse its power. Does anyone know what I mean or am I just talking out my asshole? I don't know if I'm making any dang sense. blink.gif

You're little breasticles are gorgeous and sexy and you should feel bad about them even if your uncle decides to make you feel bad about them. I have the kind of family that like to pick on you if you let them, not with the intentions to feel bad but just because they genuinly think it wont bother you and its a funny thing to point out...and I know from personal experience that it doesn't work that way. But you know what you gotta think.... you're young and sexy and he's past his sell by date my dear so dont worry about silly things old men say to compensate for there own lack of size because he'll be in an old peoples home with the grandmas and walking sticks way before you and no one is gonna want a saggy old man....you on the other hand will always be perky =D

DeeRayy i've always had issues with my weight so much that I had an eating dissorder to the point of being severely underweight a few years ago... anyways it's not an easy thing to deal with and I still struggle now. As far as what you see in the mirror and what other people see I find an exercise that helped me a lot (I don't know if it will help you as much) but is to take a photo of yourself in underwear.... keep it to yourself but if you were to look at a picture it would look a lot different to how you look in the mirror... another thing is if you look at a photo of you that was taken lets say last month or whatever and compare it to a photo you were to take now... you would deffinately notice a difference.

A thing to avoid I find are the scales because they just depress you the more you're on them. And just try to remain positive. the more time you spend away from pictures of other girls the better aswell. well for me anyways because I'm forever comparing myself to others and I know its not healthy. The time i've had without my laptop means I havent had the same access to the internet as usual so no google or facebook means I dont see pictures of other girls. So the insecurities aren't there for me because I don't compare myself. When you see someone in person its completely different because you find you dont sit there thinking 'oh I wish I looked like her' every second of every day you see them. where as when you're sat at a computer you have more time to be alone with your thoughts.

Just keep busy and be positive and always think how lucky you are to be born so beautiful and perfect and how many people in the world love you so much. becuase you're gorgeous and you shouldn't feel any less or let anyone make you feel any less. Just because someone you see is beautiful doesn't make you any less beautiful...remember that.


Also guys the nipple piercings are fantastic and have done wonders for my boobie confidence!! i'm so happy I have them i've been bra less on my days off now and feel so much more confident about my breasticles =D

You know, this is an excellent point!

Another great point is how someone "in person" can be totally different from they way they are when they move, speak, etc. There are a few actresses whom I didn't think were as gorgeous as everyone said until I saw them in movies; conversely, I've met women (like, my stepson's brief GF) after seeing impressive photos and once they opened their mouth or showed their personality, it went rapidly downhill. wink.gif

I'm going on holiday in a few weeks and I was wondering what shaped bikini would most flatter our small breasticles... I was thinking bandeu bikini top but I don't know...

any suggestions on bikini shapes??
strongirl
Crazy busy here so limited time for posting but had to get a few quick thoughts out:

Skindeep, that totally rocks re. your piercings! I am so happy for you...and envious in a good way!

On the bikini shapes, I'm partial to unpadded string triangle tops with enough substance in the fabric that I get a bit of "bunching" vertically, which adds a bit of volume and also makes my pencil-eraser nips less visible. I also like that I can adjust the triangles more toward the center or the sides, and that the ties behind the neck and at the back give me more adjustability too. I find bandeau's squish me too much, but maybe that's cuz I've lost a bit of firmness with age.

Re. exercises for BDD - again, Susie Orbach rules. Get her books. Do the mirror work. It probably saved my life from a bad eating disorder when I was in college and I've been healthy around those issues now for 30 years since then. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Karategrrl, I totally get what you're saying re. the Zen thing on not suppressing negative emotions. I try to observe, honor and respect all my feelings but not necessarily act on them. I don't judge myself for having them but I don't think that just because I think something, that it has to be true, real, or even rational. I try not to get too attached. That approach tends to keep my feelings flowing freely but not jerking me around. And once I get what I need to get out of them, they float away.

i'm kinda getting what you're saying here, karategrrl. i still need to work on putting it into use. i'm trying to use the whole systematic desensitization technique when it comes to my fear of being judged/teased for my breasts (even though that hasn't happened since my last relationship). sooo, today i'm starting my "no padding" policy when it comes to bras. it's kinda scary but i think the whole padded bra thing does more harm than good for me because it kinda feels like i'm hiding myself.

quick question on going braless- i would like to go braless in my less form-fitting tops but i feel that my boobs are too pointy to do it. should i be worried about people seeing my "traffic cones" poke through?

With the traffic cones... don't worry too much it is normal i'm having the same issue in the bigger shirts (sept it looks like I have 3 nipples atm lol) I find its mostly my nipples that are causing the pointy problem but they do that nipple tape now that looks like a bandaid that might help with rounding the nipples off a bit. Other than that I say just embrace the sexy cone shape hehe that's what i've done.

I love them, they've made me feel so much more confident and sexy, especially in tight fitted tops when i'm braless you can just see them and it's great. So far they've healed really well and they're not sore anymore, sensitivity still feels the same except when someone else touches them then they're really tingly. Only issue i'm having at the moment is when I go into cold and they decide to stand to attention, that can be uncomfortable and hurt.

I'll keep you posted =]
karategrrl

DeeRayy, that is really profound. And BRAVE.

As far as the “traffic cones” or “pencil eraser nips” (ha, LOVE IT! I always thought of mine like erasers too!) I second the thought about tape. They actually have nipple covers which are really pasties, essentially. I have some—gives you great peace of mind when you’re not in the mood to show everyone your “party hats” or if you feel your top might suddenly pop off.

I try not to get too attached. That approach tends to keep my feelings flowing freely but not jerking me around. And once I get what I need to get out of them, they float away.
Strongirl, that's so awesome. My therapist (and many books I’ve read) all say that emotions (even the difficult ones) do serve a purpose—alert you to danger, or show you something that you need to pay attention to, or maybe motivate you to action. Acknowledging feelings, making space for them, then asking yourself if you really need it or why you’re hanging on to it is often enough to diffuse it. Or at least that’s something I’m learning with myself.
(For anyone who really wants to delve into this, you can check out the Sedona Method web site and book by the same name. The book goes into WAY more detail than I personally need, but the principles are really interesting and helpful. I’ve basically reduced it down to a simple formula that I re-worded to suit me better and I keep it on my iPhone to reference.)

Speaking of piercings, (and I realize this is not on the boobie topic), anyone here had experience--or heard anything about--CHPs (clitoral hood piercings) and if they have a positive effect on sex (because the jewelry rubs against the clitoris)?
strongirl
"or if you feel your top might suddenly pop off. "

Yep, happens to me all the time, I just can't figure out how to keep the dang things on! 'course, my bf does not consider this a problem. biggrin.gif

On minimizing pointiness while going braless, I find the fabric of the top makes a huge difference. My favorite tops have some elasticity to them but not too much, so that I get a bit of support/lift, a bit of nipple containment, a bit more rounded and less pointy shape, and frankly I find it more comfortable because I don't like fabric brushing across my nips that much, I prefer to feel gently cupped. I have fitted t-shirts, camisoles, tanks that all fill the bill here. Sometimes I prefer the pointiness, esp. around my bf who loves it! So I'll go with thinner fabric, less "oomph" in the elasticity. But for a more "refined" braless look, I go for fitted and stretchy.

On the vertical hood piercing, yes, Karategrrl, I've seriously considered this piercing. I've read that it is one of the least risky and quickest to heal of all piercings, it is sex-enhancing, and I like the way it looks. There are two really important things to consider. #1 Get a really good piercer who is very experienced in doing this piercing. I've even considered traveling to be sure to get someone who is an expert. I would not want to mess up something in such an important place. #2 Make sure your anatomy is suitable. Mine probably isn't, which is the main reason I've held off. You need enough tissue in the hood itself to accommodate the piercing. There's a "test" you can do involving a q-tip but I forget how to do it exactly. I'm sure you can find it online, tho, since that's where I found it originally.

Man, if you do this...and SkinDeep's grooving on her nip piercings...I may actually get motivated to do something.

it's scary, but i will stand in solidarity with you on this, DeeRayy!! I think its sometimes easier to step out and do something when you know somebody is with you. smile.gif i am going to try to make this part of the new and improved KeraBear. This will be be the perfect time too. New school, new people. i am going to be me - booblets and all. heck i may even go braless here and there too. oh yeah, and the braless tips were really helpful, strongirl!

I love them, they've made me feel so much more confident and sexy, especially in tight fitted tops when i'm braless you can just see them and it's great. So far they've healed really well and they're not sore anymore, sensitivity still feels the same except when someone else touches them then they're really tingly. Only issue i'm having at the moment is when I go into cold and they decide to stand to attention, that can be uncomfortable and hurt.

Skindeep, i am so happy that you you are happy! smile.gif Shooot, you've even got ME dreaming about dressing up my nips, and i never thought i would say that! but can you talk more about how they hurt when you are out in the cold? Like do they hurt bad or what? i ask because i live in a climate where it seems like it is pretty chilly for half the year, so that would be an obvious concern for me. Now that you have those in aren't your nipples pretty much erect like all the time? Also you said that in some shirts it is sorta obvious obvious that you are rocking the piercings. Has anybody made any comments to you about them? Sorry, so many questions. i am just really curious!

Speaking of piercings, (and I realize this is not on the boobie topic), anyone here had experience--or heard anything about--CHPs (clitoral hood piercings) and if they have a positive effect on sex (because the jewelry rubs against the clitoris)?

Well, karategrrl, so far it appears that nobody here has actually done this. But someone needs to do this and report back to the group. I nominate YOU. You must do this. In the name of science!!!

"or if you feel your top might suddenly pop off. "

Yep, happens to me all the time, I just can't figure out how to keep the dang things on! 'course, my bf does not consider this a problem.


My booblets tell me that yours are the Great Houdini of boobs (boobini!), strongirl. They can escape from anything! Nothing can contain them!!! Let's wrap your shirts in chains and see what happens!

oh yeah and i have been finding the talk of acknowledging our feelings and emotions - calling them out, so to speak - oh so interesting. Good stuff in here lately!!!

LOL! Ooooh Lawd!!! I'm thinkingit might just be the ticket to better clit stimulation duing sex--when things get all slippery and there isn't enough friction. I ordered some magnetic post earrings today so I can do an experiment. If I don't magnetize my girly parts in the meantime, ahem--if your watches and knives and forks all go flying out the window and down the street, ask me--I just might be walking around with them sticking to my labia. laugh.gif

BOOBINI!!! bWAHAHAHAHA!

oh yeah and i have been finding the talk of acknowledging our feelings and emotions - calling them out, so to speak - oh so interesting. Good stuff in here lately!!
I agree! That's why I love it here! And thanks--glad those comments have been helpful. I just throw things out from time to time, not knowing if they will actually be useful, but worth it if they are.

I'll be on vaca for a few days, so see ya later ladies....
strongirl
Kera and Karategrrl, thanks for starting my day with laughter! I am cracking up over your comments!

Yep, that's me - Ms. Houdini Tits! biggrin.gif

And Karategrrl, the image of you attracting metal objects to your magnetized labia is going to keep me laughing for the rest of the day! Be especially careful around guys with braces on their teeth....

@Karategrrl and @strongirl

My sister has a clitoral piercing, she got it recently and YES, it healed very quickly... it took her like 1 1/2 to 2 weeks to feel 'normal' again, and that's fast for a piercing. She loves how it looks... it looks quite nice actually. She says it does enhance sexual pleasure, and she LOVES it. I think it also makes her feel sexier, more confident and special... and she says her guy loved it. She's also told some of our male friends, and after their shock passes - they've admitted they like the look of clitoral piercings.

She also told me that her piercer had one of those "Prince Albert" piercings... ouch!!! Now that's gotta hurt!!! But a friend of mine who's been with a guy with one of those piercings also reported positive sexual experiences, lol.

Anyway, I don't think I'd get a clitoral piercing because I'm kind of a chicken about it... but yeah, she says she's really glad she did it.

Awhs thank you, I highly recommend them for anyone with booby confidence issues and who loves piercings... well when its cold obviously they are more erect so I can feel the bar in them and it's sore cause they are still healing but that wont happen once they've healed. And i live in the UK so it's like ALWAYS cold here haha but it only flairs up painful when i'm in the freezer at work or when i'm just getting out of the shower although that's calmed down now. Yeah they are pretty much erect all the time but its cool haha. Just friends so far say that they look awesome especially when i'm wearing a tight fitted shirt so good times =D no thats fine if you have anymore questions feel free to ask haha x

I did a search for some small boobie articles on the interwebs and came across some interesting findings.

Like this interesting bit about how small boobs might be considered "cool" cool.gif - http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/dating...ll-breast-sizes

Then this one reminded me of DeeRayy and I's commitment to "depad" this school year. yay us! - http://missweet.wordpress.com/2011/06/18/a...nt-and-a-smile/

buuuuut there is also a real danger to performing such searches, and it has the opposite effect of what I am looking for! Like when i came across this asshat - http://blogs.citybeat.com/livingoutloud/20...mall-breas.html. oh i do hope that this gal dropped him like a bad habit!! grrrrr mad.gif I do apologize if that last one upset some people or if it ruined the positive vibe we have going here. But for me, it is an ugly reminder of the harsh reality that there are guys like this out there. unsure.gif

i will never understand men that detest small breasts yet date small breasted women. if a man really dislikes small breasts that much then he has no business approaching a small busted woman in the first place. why date someone if you're just going to try to change her? i understand everyone has their preferences and there's always going to be men whose preferences you don't fit, no matter what you look like. but good god, if large breasts are high on your priority list then leave me the hell alone.

eeek, but i gotta admit this exact situation has always been one of my biggest fears when it comes to dating unsure.gif

i hope his stupidity didn't hurt the poor girl's confidence! i also noticed his last name was anus. coincidence? i think not! the name says it all!
DeeRayy
oh btw, i think these articles are very well written.

http://fuckyeahskinnychicks.wordpress.com/...eing-inclusive/

i think this blog (titled "fuck yeah skinny chicks" lol) would be beneficial to a lot of the girls on here. it's a body acceptance blog catered towards naturally thin women. my favorite quote from it-By now, everyone should realise that the only people out there who aren’t ”real women” are men.

Yes. Exactly!!! I don't get it. Probably because she was willing to sleep with him? This makes me feel sad. She probably thought she was valued and she trusted him so much that she was willing to share her body - and her greatest insecurities - with him. This had to be shattering for her.

i am sorry if the link affected you so negatively, Dee.... i really wrestled with whether to post it in the first place. But i figured we cannot really deny the existence of such people?? i dunno.

but i LOVED the links that you shared (and the title lol!).

OMG, this was wonderful.


Was it just me, or was the Bust Lounge server down for like over a week!?!?!?! I was almost in panic mode, thinking I'd never hear from any of you again!! We should have a backup plan.

I was on vacation for a few days even before the server issue, so I have to catchup on all the juicy goodness going on here! Ah, feels good to be back!
karategrrl
Secretsight, thanks for the info about your sis's piercing. It's encouraging that it did heal so quickly! Every other piercing I've gotten (ears and navel) healed nicely, as did my tattoo, so I think I'm healthy and heal quickly in general. I'd heard it takes 6 weeks for a clitoral hood piercing to heal before you can have sex again and that is scary to me! But that doesn't sound like that was the case with your sis.

Yep, I did get the magnetic earrings and tried it out! Took a few tries to place it right, but I must say it felt awesome. wink.gif I don't have the most ahem, "petite" labia so though I'm in no hurry to do anything else to draw attention to it, I think the sexual aspect overrules. I was at my gyno last week for my annual exam and asked if he sees lots of piercings. He said yes, and that lots of people do it for sexual pleasure reasons. So...my wheels are turning... no promises though. wink.gif


Oh yeah, and that "anus" guy is just that. After he describes how he'd gotten done "banging" her, he says that he'd never let anyone put an implant in him. But it's okay for him to suggest that to her. Of course. When you have the brains of an anus, that reasoning makes total sense.
karategrrl
Ha, we made the news again--they quoted one of us in that NY Times article about being "outboobed by teenagers."

I wasn't thrilled about that Marie Claire piece b/c they were dissing large breasts. (But thank you for posting, Kera!) Like we've said in here many times, loving yourself doesn't have to be at someone else's expense.

No, not just you!! You know i never really realized how much i depended on you gals for support until this place was gone. I appreciate you all sooooooo much! smile.gif I will freely give my e-mail address to any of you who want it. Just message me. Note: Random creepers need not apply.

yes, i noticed that about the article too and totally agree with you there, karategrrl. I always try to put myself in somebody else's bra when i am trying to rationalize about why i should love my booblets and not make comments that might make them feel bad about themselves. gals of all sizes struggle with body image.

Yep, I did get the magnetic earrings and tried it out! Took a few tries to place it right, but I must say it felt awesome.

Ha ha... this is so fantastic! smile.gif No accidents involving silverwear then? LOL

Finally, I have a question for some of you "older" ladies here on the forum (i use that term loosely because I don't consider any of you old at all!) I've heard more than once around here how breasts change as we go through life. How have yours changed and at what stages? I am particularly interested in how they've changed as a result of pregnancy? Hey, thanks for sharing!!
DeeRayy
hey all!

so glad the site's back!

oh and i found another good body image site that i think would be especially beneficial to my fellow teens-
http://theshapeofamother.com/
it's a site where women who have just recently given birth submit pictures (warning, nudity! lol) of their bodies and share their newfound struggles with body image. it gave me some real perspective because, well, i wanna have kids someday and so i figured, "well i need to start appreciating my body now because it's gonna take a beating when i have kids and i'll be wishing i had the body i have now". and i realized that i need to start learning how to be stronger. because if i can't handle having small boobs then what am i gonna do if those boobs sag from breastfeeding, or when i have stretchmarks and excess weight after giving birth? just a little food for thought for the younger members of this group.
karategrrl
Hey, that site is awesome!!! And I think it's great that you are looking to the future--motherhood body and such. Isn't it ridiculous that women should somehow feel ashamed of the changes their bodies went through after giving birth? I know a couple of friends who are ashamed of their bellies, etc. for this reason. I love the part of the site linked to the "50 Nude Women" project.

Kera, "putting yourself in someone else's bra!" I love it!!
KeraBear
Thanks for sharing that link, Dee! It really applied well to my question. smile.gif Also, I do appreciate that the links that you post have more to do with body image for ALL women and not necessarily just geared towards us smallies. Good stuff!

Hey, just wondering who here has stuffed their bra? I've considered it a few times back when i was in jr. high, but i would never do it because i was so deathly afraid of something happening and my deception would be exposed!!! omigosh i would never have lived it down. That's not to say that i didn't wear ridiculously overpadded bras, though. smile.gif i disagree with the girl that wrote this story though. She said that she is positive that she wouldn't have gotten her first kiss the way she did without having tricked him. How does she know that? It could've been her fab personality! Ahhh... junior high school... such an awkward time... oh the lengths we will go sometimes to get the attention of some stupid boy. but she says that she ended up becoming the boy's girlfriend at the end of that story. i wonder if she had to keep the charade up and for how long? She doesn't really say anything about that. Seems like simply being yourself would be so much easier... but again this is jr high we are talking about...logic wasn't exactly rampant during those years. LOL
strongirl
Hi women! Yeah, it was unsettling having no access to this wonderful place! Glad it's back!

With my 50th birthday coming up this fall, I think I'm in a good position to answer the "changes over time" question. My basic boob size hasn't changed since I was in my early teens. But I've always had a lot of variation with my monthly cycle (up and down about a 1/2 cup size, sometimes more), with my pregnancy and nursing, with weight fluctuations. It's just that they always hover around that 34A baseline and always come back there. Even with the constant changes, I have no stretchmarks - none! - and no sagging. I still have what a friend once called "stargazers" - ie. my nips look up, not down, lol. I have to say I could not be happier with my boobs at this point in my life. I think my small, pert breasts take years, maybe decades, off my looks. I do not look "matronly", for which I am very grateful.

I was really scared about what pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing were going to do to my body. Since I'd had an eating disorder and some body issues in college, I was afraid that I'd feel like my body was out of control and that I'd get crazy over it. But I didn't. I loved being pregnant and I adored breastfeeding. And I was good at them! I wanted to flaunt my success all over the place and go "See! See! Now tell me I have 'the body of a 12 year old boy' when I obviously have the power of a woman's body and the ability to start and sustain a human life with this body!"

And I know I've boasted about this before, but I could have fed a small army with the amount of milk I produced. It was totally impressive.

One other piece of advice re. boobs and aging: use sunscreen. I've seen a lot of women who are in the habit of showing off their "assets" but at this age what they're showing is saggy bags smushed together and up by an industrial strength brassiere covered in wrinkly crinkly leathery skin with some spots that make me think "get thee to a dermatologist - time for a skin cancer check!". My parents live in FL, so believe me, I've seen a lot of this look and it looks scary, not to mention unhealthy.

Strongirl, that was such a totally awesome post. I dont' have young'uns but I really loved reading of that powerful feeling of giving and sustaining life, even with your "boy's" body!! So "HAH!" I say to anyone who gave you shit about your awesome bod!!!

And oh, I SO hear you about the chest "crinkle" shit. Bleargh!!! Last week my co-worker's daughter (teenager) was in with her and we all went out for coffee. I was ogling the teen's likely B- or C-cup boobs, trying not to be too obvious and also trying not to hate her and be jealous, but also I found myself looking at her mom's boobs--the wrinkled cleavage variety--and thinking, "Girl, do what your mom didn't do and please sunscreen those beautiful babies!!!!"

Nothing against my larger-breasted sistahs--they have their assets too, for sure--but someone told me this week that he always thought I was about 27. (I'm 42, ahem.) I can't help but think--or know--that my booblets take years off! wink.gif I'll never look matronly either!!
