For most of my life up until I had children, I wasted an ridiculous amounts of time overcoming a loathing of my own body. My individual body parts were either too big, too small, too hairy, a weird shape or smell. Call me the Goldilocks of Self-Image and I expect that many other women would rock up to claim joint ownership of the Crown of Thorns.
It occurred to me yesterday morning as I got dressed that I would have to put a bra on for no other reason than that I was wearing a white tight top. While I don’t have an issue with presenting my unsupported breasts to the world, it occurred to me that someone else might. So I self censored my body in a way to save me, and possibly my son who is being picked on, the worry and concern of drawing my 32 B boobs to someone’s attention.
That then lead me to wonder – for women with large breasts the non-bra wearing issue is more than a sartorial hot potato. What on earth do you do with large breasts?
My double sided question topic for today is this …
What do you do with them if you have them? What would you do with them if you don’t but suddenly acquired them?
