You are here

the BOOBS thread

written "BOOBS" and not "boobs" to maximize the semblance to boobs.

continued from the "'you're kind of heavy for a vegan'" thread. We were complaining about boob size, but anything boobs-related goes here. Complaints, praise, musings, whatever.

I used to have bigger boobs when i was heavier 36 C... not they are like a 34 B... I couldn't imagine them being any bigger... I like the flatter chest look myself because clothes fit better... My boobs aren't even that big and I have to get bigger shirts just so my not so big boobs will fit... Lame

I'm just average (kind of between 34-36 B-C). I think a little bit bigger would be more proportioned, but whatever. Not small enough for me to feel comfortable without a bra in most public situations, but not big enough to ever be like, whooaa, boobs.
I used to wear extreme push up/padded bras, but now I just kind of wear one bra all the time until it's worn out. I guess I just have broader shoulders, because I always have the button-up shirt gap, even though I don't have the boobs!

Hm. Well, I haven't always done the one bra thing, but I did that with the biofit bra that I had (wore almost exclusively until it was worn out). It just kind of depends. The biofit one I washed maybe..1-2 times a month, because I mainly just wore it to work. Sports bras I wash every couple weeks. Non sport bras just never really seem dirty. I don't wear a bra that often. W w w w w why?

Oh, it came up in a conversation between me and some friends one time. They all thought I was gross for giving a bra 4-7 days before washing. They claimed to only do 1-2d. I looked it up on the internets, and found women asking similar questions on Yahoo Answers (clearly reliable), with similar reactions.
Is this something that people would lie about, or are there different standards?
Relatedly, I think a lot of people lie about showering every day. Just sayin'.

1-2 days? Do they wash their clothes every day? I'll wear the same pants at home for like a week. I shower more than I used to. hehe I never lied about it, though.

funny you should mention showers. in senior year my best friend would come into homeroom everyday and tell me how many days it had been since she last showered. hahaha. i love that girl. and we used to compete. i was ok with like 3-4 days because i did swimming and water polo and i figured the chlorine cleaned me enough, but i could never go more than that.

No joke, I'm almost always wearing a bra. I even wear sports bras to bed. I just can't stand to not wear a bra. I can't do it.

And I was just thinking about showers. I took one yesterday, so I don't think I'll take one until tomorrow night. It's like...three days.

I used to do the smell test with my bra.  I'd wear it until it started to smell.  Now that I'm going to the gym and sweating a lot, I change it daily.  I need more bras.

Not really about boobs but nipples. I have huge super sensitive nipples and I et sores on them. I guess its ezcema and its so hard to heal, any tips?

You'd probably want the same cream stuff they have for ezcema elsewhere.

I'm guessing they have like 7-10 bras.
I do the same with pants, not just at home. I wonder if anyone notices I'm wearing the same jeans all week.

People don't seem to have the same sort of rule about shirts though. Is that weird? I always thought that, with shirts, it's because you've got the armpit region there, which generally doesn't touch a bra though. But, that doesn't mean I wear tank tops twice. Hmm...

Back onto boobs. I can't sleep if I'm wearing a bra.

Sportsbras are washed each time I sweat in them (so 90%) of the time.

Regular bras... honestly, I barely ever wash them. Maybe every two weeks I wear them? I rotate between like 4-5 regular bras.

I have been wearing some of the same bras for 4-5 years, and they don't look bad. Washing them all the time wears them out and they lose their shape.

Plus, I think they smell better after I've worn them. Yeah, I said it. My boobs smell nice.

I wear a bra a ton before I wash it. Haha. I'm afraid it will get all worn if I was it tons. On light colored ones, if the straps start to look a different color I wash it. And on others if I can see sweat marks I do. I'm gross. whatever. I don't care.

I can't really go in public without a bra. It bothers me. My nipples are noticeable. Ahaha.

I feel the need to share my size because everyone has. I'm 32B or 32C. Idk why, I have a few of both. I would get measured but I just don't care enough. If I measure myself I Get some other weird size that I know doesnt fit. Haha. Silly body. I think it tells me I'm AA or A when I've done it. Deff not.

I sleep in bras like, half the time. Mainly when its cold. I don't want them to freeze. Or if I'm lazy and get dressed for the next day before bed.

I feel u on the bra (needing to wear one out in public) and showers... I'm such a lazy ass I hate taking showers... I usually end up taking one at least every other day

I can only wear a sports bra to bed which a rarely do... I like my boobies to be free :)

On washing bras I probably wear 1 or 2 bras throughout the week and wash one of them on laundry day (usually thursday)... I usually wear my clothes a few times before washing them

This.

Although I posted it on one other thread, I have to post the Boob Video I just completed for a class project. I put way too much time into it not to share it when I get the opportunity. :P

The class is called Monstrous Women in Science Fiction and Film, and our assignment was to create a digital media project that addresses the portrayal of feminine bodies in popular media and sci-fi. I decided narrow my focus to the depiction of women's breasts in sci-fi film/lit as compared to mainstream culture. I had far too much fun making it.

Great video NewShoes!!! That was really fun to watch. And what a cool class!! Wow!

Everyone posting about how often they wash their bras makes me feel so much better. I have a bunch of bras but there are only 3 I wear on a regular basis- black, beige, and red. I don't even know how much I wear them before I wash them. Probably a couple weeks go by and I think oh, it's probably time to wash them. But in the summer they definitely start smelling pretty fast so I wash them more then.

I seriously had dreams about boobs and bras all night.

I kind of do the same with shirts. I'll wear the same sweatshirt at home for a few days. I think shirts seem to get dirty quicker, because more stuff gets on them. Like with cooking/baking, I get more stuff on my shirts, and it's more noticeable because it's up top.

I rarely ever wash my bras....I rotate between 2 - and they are the exact same bra.  I tend to stretch them out pretty bad, so I buy a new bra every few months, well, more like every 6 months....

I have a ton of bras...but what can I say, I love me some pretty underthings.  :)>>>
I wear 1-2 a week though, and wash 'em on laundry day.  Maybe more than necessary because they aren't smelly, but I am kind of OCD about washing clothes.
