rant on natural breast shape


I usually cut curvygirls-cross-posted stuff, but not today! I am ranty, hear me roar!

Recently, my breasts changed from a 34DD to a 34E -- and changed greatly in shape. They now swoop down a bit -- and I like that. I think my breasts look more womanly and voluptuous that way. Before we started this theme ("Twin Peaks" -- breasts obviously), I had no idea that it was a common thing for women to be insecure about their breasts leaning down. As I read woman after woman write about it, I started feeling insecure about my own breasts! And that is ridiculous!

Why? Because it is perfectly normal and natural for a woman's breasts to curve down! That is the way they are designed to be when fully matured -- it's far easier for them to perform thier function of feeding a baby that way. We have swallowed the lie that they are supposed to stay 'perky' (the immature teenager breast) forever! Downward-curving breasts are as womanly and natural as hips and belly and thighs and everything else! The only kind of breasts that stay 'perky' forever are silicone ones.

Like I read on the normal breasts website, we are used to seeing breasts in two ways -- lifted and rounded by a bra, under a shirt (the average woman you meet on the street), or in airbrushed, pumped-up photos (in the media). Do you know that first of all, they sometimes use clear tape to lift the breasts in the photoshoot? And then with airbrushing they make them rounder and fuller. That is NOT NORMAL. If they were really that round and full, they'd either lean down or they'd be made of silicone.

I say we LOVE our beautiful normal breasts and stop calling them 'saggy' -- that is such an ugly word. A lot of us are very voluptuous -- our breasts are going to lean down from the weight and that is normal and beautiful. We have learned to love our curvy bellies despite the media's lies that they should be flat -- let's do the same with our breasts!

I have luxuriously, gorgeously slanting breasts, and I am PROUD of them!

I'm more convinced than ever that variety is the spice of life, and trying to live up to societal/media standards is just silly.

Amen!!!

Now my thoughts on this are a little different I agree with you completely, but my boobs used to be really huge too. They were causing me problems. Bruised shoulders, back aches, couldn't run, all kinds of crap. I got them reduced and I feel wonderful. I was just wondering what you thought about people getting breast redutions and could I even mention it in the community without it being deemed negative. It was for a health reason after all.
belenen ══╣curvygirl 2╠══
Oh, I totally support breast reductions for health reasons -- just like I support gaining or losing weight for health reasons. It's just altering your body for the look of it that I am against.

This was neat. I don't have anything to say, but I read so many of your posts and just don't know what to say, so I don't comment.

But just thank you for this post. You are so adorable.

In the far gone past, a less evolved human or sapien species, something like that, the women had huge very droopy breasts so they could sling them over their shoulders to feed their kids, who had to travel on their backs while they were on the move or out finding food. At least, I remember reading this a fair few years ago. It may not be true. But I found it interesting. How things change. It's kinda related anyway.

Am at my mums for the weekend, so I'm on here! But only for a wee while. But I would like to take this opportunity to say I haven't forgotten about your present! I was worried you'd think I had. Decided to leave getting it sorted til after exams, because I've changed my mind for what to get, so I have to go shopping, and if I do things while I should be revising I feel guilty and its NO FUN. Besides, I have ideas. Last exam was yesterday, soI'm going to go shopping sometime this week, and get the rest of it sorted, hopefully, so you SHOULD get it sometime in the next couple of weeks, and if you don't I should be severely chastised.

It's terribly late for christmas, but now I feel like buying presents (which I never seem to before christmas), so you're getting one anyway.

ANYWAY. Hope everything is going well for you! Haven't read any other enties yet, started with the most recent. Bye for now :)

;-D Yay I get a present from Kate! I'll just call it a combination Christmas/birthday present. ;-)

I so can't wait until you get internet again! And when you do, you must add eternitywaiting and shioneh as friends, 'cause I want them to get to know you. ;-)

lol congrats. As a male, I can agree with you that unnatural breasts are unattractive and unatural. I dont understand why all these women are going out there getting silicon balls shoved in...i dont find it attractive at all. And my not understanding could be because i am a male....(shrugs)
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
Oh, I totally agree. I don't understand how people can find it attractive either.
