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!
