This post goes out to all my fellow sisters that are members of the IBTC (Itty Bitty T*tty Committee). It’s taken me years to embrace the fact that I have a small chest and be okay with it. I was always made fun of growing up for being the tiniest kid in class. I was underweight all through my school years and even weighed in at a solid 96 lbs. (on a good day) at my high school graduation.
In high school, I so badly wanted bigger breasts. I started wearing water bras in my Sophomore year to add a little volume up top. It made me feel a little more proportional (I’ve always had a butt) but one of my girlfriends spilled the beans and I was once again the brunt of all the jokes (I was used to it at this point lol). I remember a cartoon floating around my classroom of me as Britney Spears, on stage performing, with a leak sprung from my water bra.
Needless to say, I’ve tried just about every cup enhancing bra out there. I’ve owned every “Add A Cup”/Padded/Push-Up bra that Victoria’s Secret has ever created. I’ve been so uncomfortable in my own skin because I was so convinced that I needed a fuller chest in order to be more feminine/womanly. I’m not sure when the change happened in me, but one day I woke up and was just totally okay with my B-cups. Here’s a few reasons why smaller breasts are fabulous, in case you too need to be convinced:
- You can easily get away with bralettes and they’re totally a fancy accessory.
- You have better posture with less weight in the front weighing you down.
- You can wear pasties or cutlets and not worry about appearing saggy.
- You can rock the deep-v styles (so in right now!) with ease.
- You never have to worry about needing a breast reduction.
- Button down shirt? No problem!
- Easier time picking swim tops because you can go with more versatile styles.
- I’ve read that it’s easier to get massages and better sleep with smaller boobs.
Now I find myself gravitating towards the deep-v style tops, like this romper. I like that I have the ability to wear this style comfortably. I think there’s something just as sexy about a nice chest and clavicle as there is about cleavage.
I mean no hate for my full chested Gorgeous Girls. There was a time when I wanted to be you, but now I’ve learned to be happy with what God gave me. I also see nothing wrong with women who want to get/have implants. If that’s something that makes you more comfortable with your own body, and you’re doing it for you, then I say more power to ya!
