Breasts: if you got them...

For the Blog Off's third week, I have received the word prompt of "breasts" to write about. do I know that each angle that I'm thinking of taking will most likely lead me into hot water with my boyfriend ;) Probably because of these boobie related photos (1, 2) that I posted here, which didn't go over so well with him in the past and I doubt my reposting of them will either, opps, lol.

So when I told my guy this week's topic, he goes, "Oh that should be easy for you, they speak for themselves, especially since they are always OUT." Hmm, that's debatable, but me displaying my wares wasn’t always the case.

I was very self-conscious of my boobs during my middle and high school years, causing me to hide under sweatshirts and not being able to wear cute little tops that my friends were all wearing.  Being only 5'1ish made my size seem all the more unbalanced and leaving me feeling fat and ugly. 

It didn't help having a mother who would talk about my chest in front of her girlfriends and even to the point of suggesting that I lift my shirt to show them while she questioned where I had got "them" from.  I remember one time on an airplane flying somewhere, we hit turbulence and she loudly declared that if anything went wrong I could use my bra as a parachute, causing people to naturally turn around to see. 

Eventually, once I was near the end of my college years, I started feeling more comfortable with my twins (yes, I'm going to use every similar breast reference possible). Finding the right bras and minimizers to buy helped too, as did hanging out with some well endowed friends (IE, the women in photo post 2) who encouraged me to show some cleavage and be proud of my girls. I've also lost weight since high school and my early years of college allowing me to go down a bra size thankfully. Now, I probably show my advantages a little too proudly at times, but what the hell, I can't help that I have them, I'm not going to hide them and yeah I like them now and am proud I got some oomph to me.

Don't hide them, flaunt them.  You got it right, girl!  And I love that photo #2.  What a great concept.  Now, I wonder if me and my girls can get that on a camera phone?

Nothing like a mammaries post to yield a jackpot of comments! You're a definite crowd-pleaser, online and off. All for a good cause, of course :)

 And I was gonna say, it sounds like Mom is envious...

Also, something's up with your URL. Site doesn't load if you include www. part.

Amen!  Love being part of the well-endowed club, even though it has some downsides sometimes, most of the time I love having big breasts.

Although I am very thankful I did not have someone like your mom to comment on them when I was younger because I was very shy about them in high school and even into college.  Took me a couple years to really "come into" my own.
