I remember at 13 years old how I use to dream about the day that I'd finally be like all the girls that I saw on TV and in magazines. I wanted to have boobs like all my other friends and be able to talk about the different struggles that came along with having them. Little did I know what the struggles were NOT something to look forward to and I should have cherished that time as a flat-chested 13-year-old.
If I could go back in time and enjoy that time trust me, I would! Now in the present time and being a petite, 5'2" woman with D-sized boobs is not ideal...at ALL. So I have come up with some struggles that myself and other women like me face on a daily basis.
Here's to all my big-boobed ladies and to their daily boobie struggles.
1. All clothing looks provocative unless it's an oversized hoodie
I love to shop and buy a cute new shirt or dress. Yet when it comes to finding something that doesn't make me look like I am a stripper or that I want every person in the universe look at my chest, it can be a big struggle. This eliminates a lot of options for me such as low cut shirts, v-necks, tight dresses, crop tops and so much more. Not that I don't wear those different clothing items but it has to be the right time and the right setting to make them work. So I usually opt for high necked shirts that aren't too tight and often items for clothing items that are flowy or take the attention away from my chest. Though this can be a serious struggle no matter what I wear.
2. The different pains are a whole different story
Oh, how naive my young self-was. Before my body decided to grow boobs nothing every really hurt on my body. I was a dancer, a gymnast, and a marcher and the most pain that I ever suffered from if any was soreness from a workout or a long day on the field marching. Little did I know that I once I grew boobs I would have daily pain such as back pain and rib soreness. Having such a small and petite body but so much weight on my top half has not been the most ideal for the rest of my body. I am a very active person so carrying these things and still being active can come with some serious consequences. I'm pretty used to the back and rib pain but it will never feel good.
3. Swimsuits...an entirely new issue
I absolutely love to swim and go to the beach. Ever since I was a little girl my parents have called me a fish because of how strong my love was for the water. Yet once I grew boobs it wasn't as easy for me to enjoy something that I love so so much. Bathing suits are hard to find and for many reasons. One reason is when you have big boobs the options to find something cute and trendy becomes harder and harder. Similar to my other point, when I am out and about in a bathing suit it can hard to not look provocative and like I am asking for attention. When in reality all I want to do is enjoy the beach or the pool and not be stared at by old dudes or creepy teenage boys.
4. Boys...all they see is boobs
At the young age of 20 years old I have had my share of comments or DMs about the size of my chest. Some are astonished by the size, some think that they are not real, and some are just rude. Now don't get me wrong it can be flattering but it gets old real fast. I am the type of person who wants to be seen for more than just what is on my chest. So if the size of my boobs are all you're interested in and you can't move past that then don't waste my time.
5. Looking un-proportionate
Like I mentioned throughout this entire article I am a very petite-sized person. I always have been small and I like that about myself. Yet when I went through puberty and was given what's on my chest it changed the game for good. At times I can look top-heavy. Especially in pictures and even in real life which can cause me to have some body image issues. I don't try to harp on that because everyone has their different struggles, mine just happens to be having big boobs and a small body.
Don't get me wrong I love my body... even though at times I struggle with different issues and pains. Everyone is built the way they are for a reason and we all just need to realize that and love ourselves!
