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 think the measuring just kind of gives you an idea, but you ultimately wear what works.

totes.

Each brand does its own thing, just like dresses and pants and and shoes underwear and blah blah blah. That's why you have to just try it on. My boyfriend walks into a store and says: I want 29x34 pants. He gets them, tries them on, yep they fit, 10 minutes later he owns pants. This would never happen to a woman!

I don't really like bras, so I rarely wear them. When I do, it's a sports bra. I have pretty small boobs, and I like it.

So inspired by this thread I went out and finally bought new brass yesterday.  One cotton black plainish one - just a little strip of white background & black polka dots by the edge.  One plain dark purple one and one lacy royal blue one.
Why the hell did I buy a bright blue lacy bra?!?!  Yes it's very nice and pretty but bright blue!  What was I thinking?
I love my blue bra though.

Haha. All of my bras used to be crazy colors. I couldn't wear them with half of my clothes. I still have some crazy looking ones. Like bright green/pink stripes with rainbow stars. and i have 2 that have like rainbow hearts/dots.

I was at a party today with women with low-cut tops and because of this thread I kept staring at their breasts thinking about their sizes and where they'd fit on the poll distribution.  Since I hadn't met any of them before, now they'll remember me as Chris' pervy friend.

this thread inspired me to try to find a bra or two to replace my 2 that i have that are totally worn out. i actually hink i might be a 32 D now, though.... this is seriously freaking me out... i can not be a D.. no no no... my boobies are tiny. but all the 32 Cs i tried on were too small.

Isn't that the worst feeling? I can't even explain it...it's just disbelief. As in, NO, I can't be a D, E, whatever. I'm not a porn star!

I'm a 10C in NZ, according to bra size converter that means I am US 32C or UK 32D. I have bigger boobs if I go to England! Wooooo!

I don't own many bras, they usually stretch either the band or the straps and then I can't wear them. Usually only have 2, maybe 3 bras on rotation.

This might be weird (but it's actually the biggest "problem" I have with my body - it really bothers me). I have like no boobs. They're tiny. But I have a belly. In fact my gut/belly area is... bigger?... than my little boobies. I just wish that things would shift... up. Make sense? I'm a tiny person (slim) with a flubbly belly and no boobs. It's weird. At least I think it is.

I don't think I've ever told anyone this before. Hmm.

At least you are overall slim!

I am little more chubby and I HATE it when I look at myself from the side in the mirror. I'm like OMG my tummy sticks out almost as much or more than my boobs! Blech.

Oh well. I really used to hate my boobs. I am pretty broad chested so I can put a whole hand between my boobs. And they used to be all Madonna cone pointy, but thanks to BC now they are rounder. And my BF loves them to pieces so it has given me more confidence.

Also, I hardly wear a bra either. Only when I want pushed up boobs and cleavage. And addressing the whole washing bra thing. I like wash mine uhh, a couple times a year. Unless it is a sports bra or one of those thin little shelf bras.

My boobs stick out farther than my belly, but that doesn't say much about my belly because my boobs are huge. :(

Basically, you don't need to wear a bra on your belly, so enjoy your small boobs!  ;D tee hee

It's so funny how different our bodies can be! I'm pretty short, too, and I bet our heights are all across the boards. That's why everyone should be happy with and embrace their own bodies--we've only got this one. I'm so sick of seeing celebrities and models that all look exactly the same. It's so boring. Bodies are beautiful and fun and we should celebrate everyone's!

Yes, yes, yes. And I understand where my self-consciousness comes from. There's nothing wrong with my body (or any of our bodies - we're all beautiful!), but ingrained is a belief about what I should look like, how I should act, who I should be, etc. This is something I'm trying to challenge every day - because it's total bullshit (and based on systems like consumerism, liberal individualism, blah, blah, blah). It feels good to vent though!

I thought I had a great idea a few years ago, and wanted to design a bra that looked like this.  Alas, someone beat me to it.

Just a thought for those of you who hate your big boobs. I seriously always hated mine for so long and wanted them removed. Then after I breast fed I sort of fell in love with them (not their appearance, but just their function). They made so much milk and made my baby so big and healthy that I just developed a new appreciation for my once hated appendages. Not to say you will all breastfeed one day, but if you do, you might have a new outlook on them! ;)
And mine seriously look BETTER after bfing 2 babies, not worse. BFing does not ruin boobs, contrary to popular belief!

I actually see what you mean about this. I've often thought that giving birth and nursing would remind me of what my body was actually really made for. Right now they're just a nuisance. However, I do not plan on having children, so I'm a bit more interested in reduction surgery than if I did plan to have them. There'd be no way I'd want to risk their milk for me to look hot.

It kind of reminds me of how I began to see my huge thighs in a different manner after I started running. Before, they were big and I had to wear big pants tat were huge in the waist to compensate for them. After running, I thought of them as muscular machines that propelled me through the air and other poetic nonsense!

I actually feel the opposite.  The little dude and I are having a hard time getting breastfeeding established (it's not as easy as baby + boobs.  Apparently 80% of people have trouble with it, especially in the first few weeks, although you never hear about it).  I wish my baby could survive on cuddles and I could have my cute, small, non-functional boobs back.
