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.

someone sent this to me a little while back.

PG...your boobs will be back! It's a small sacrifice to make (a few months/couple years) of BFing and they will be as good as new!

I've seen that site before. Pretty cool.

I kind of wonder about the asymmetry thing though. Reading some of those women's comments on their own photo, they note some sort of asymmetry in their breasts that I can barely see. Maybe because we're *so* familiar with our own bodies, things like asymmetry stand out more to us than any one else.

Still, if I'm in a swimsuit, I think my asymmetry is noticeable. I've read things about how "most women" have some asymmetry, but then looking at other women in swimsuits (real women, not magazines or anything)... I don't really see it. Maybe it's just self-consciousness on my part, maybe I'm slightly more asymmetrical than the average. Whatever. I'm told that the variety is better ^_^

Once a guy let me know which one of my boobs was bigger. In a really weird just straight up said it way.

I was like, okay? I know this already? Thanks?
So weird.

I don't see my asymmetry, but 2 saleswomen at Nordstrom and my bf all say my right one is bigger. I can't see it, but 3/3 must mean something.

I was reading on that site, and I was wondering. Those of you who have children: did/do you undress in front of your child/ren? That website says that that is part of the way to desexualize breasts. I was just curious.

I have tried to create a little privacy now that Noah is older, but if he walks in and sees me i dont make a big deal. he really doesn't get it yet. when he was about 3 he told me that my boobs were "cute". lol!
i am still breastfeeding, so he sees the boobs then and doesn't really react. he has NO CLUE about sex or anything related to it yet. He turns 9 tomorrow.
he still doesn't care if i see him naked but i guess that will change in the next couple of years.

I wish my big boobs had been good for nursing.  I pumped, took meds, saw lactation consultants and never made any milk, all I got was drops.  Its more about how many milk ducts you have and apparently little boobs can have tons and big ones like mins might not have very many.  Sigh.

I was looking at little girl bras today. They had 30Bs. But I think I'm 30C. I didnt try any on because an embarrassed little girl and her mother came over so I wandered off and got little boys undies instead.

But. I might try on little girls bras sometime. Haha.

I wish I could wear cute little girl bras. I never could- it was straight into grownup bras.

And sometimes I feel like the embarrassed little girl when looking for bras. I'm very self-conscious.

You and me both...I certainly don't belong to the "ity bitty titty club"...(sometimes I wish I did,)

Those cute bras often have horrible, rough, irritating fabric. Maybe it's just more irritating to bigger boobs (thinner skin?), I dunno, but I've bought them occasionally when I could get them in my size... AWFUL.

Those are good if you're not new to a relationship.  It's weird to go from clothed big breasts to a bare small breasts early on.  I would wear that bra as a gesture to someone I was dating if we were going out to hang with his friends.  I think guys want their friends to think they did well in the dating pool and breasts are a status symbol for some.  I'll market myself to the lowest common denominator when I feel like it.  Although I probably come across less cool because I feel more badass and confident with smaller breasts.  (And the guys I've been with could have cared less either way.)

do you mean they could have NOT cared less, HH?

i had to read your post twice to get it, but now that I do, it is cracking me up.
breasts as status symbols. LMAO!

Agreed. Why would you ever want lace or a seam running across your nipples? WORST. IDEA. EVER.

Say what? Hell with what some guy's friends think! Own your small breasts and wear 'em proud, HH! When you're confident in YOUR body (not the fabric you're wearing), your breasts are definitely not going to be the attribute that stands out most when you meet people. Instead, I think your boyfriend's guy friends will be more likely to think "DAMN! That is one sexy, self-confident woman!"  Hubba hubba  8-)

I think we, as women, have been conditioned to believe that we are evaluated primarily based on our physical features. While I think my body is undeniably part of the image I convey, I'm going to give men some credit here and say that I don't think boobs are the highest ranking factor in their overall evaluations of women. I've asked my guy friends about this... Yes, they notice my physical attributes immediately upon meeting me... But quickly their attention shifts to the conversation we're having, the way I look them in the eye, the way I carry myself, etc. If I'm insecure in my appearance or putting off an aura that feels unauthentic, I would think the guys will be even more likely to focus on physical features.

Just sharing some thoughts. Don't mean to tell you how to live your life what clothes to wear, HH. I'm sure you come off as a great catch to your boyfriend's friends no matter what you're wearing. :)

NewShoes, you make me  :)

The "although I probably come across as less cool" should have been "I'd".  It will relieve you to know that I don't own a push-up bra.  I'm going to be in a wedding and the strapless bra I bought for the dress is a push-up.  It was the only one low cut enough.  

Conceptually, I'd wear one.  Not for his everyday friends, but for holiday office party friends or reunion friends or something like that.  Although, I also think it's kind of weird, because we females know immediately who is wearing extra padding.  You'd think guys would get good at this knowledge, too.  So what's the point?  I do think that women with larger breasts have more social currency to spend.  The trade off is that larger breasted women are more likely to have girl drama, probably because society coddles them more.  (Yes, I know this isn't true for all women, but it's true among all the women I know, save one.)

I don't know if this is interesting or not, but if I were to date a woman, I wouldn't ever think of wearing a push-up bra.  (I always say that the reason I won't date women is to avoid the girl drama, but the type of women I like - the Cokie Roberts / Katherine Hepburn type - wouldn't have girl drama.)
