Not Happy With My Breasts (K)

November 15, 2013

Age:25
Number of pregnancies: 4
Live births: One 5.5 year old (and one on the way!)
22 Weeks Pregnant in photos
Breastfed for 19 months

I had my daughter when I was 20-before that I had nice perky and full breasts, a nice stomach and a butt I was happy with. I always had cellulite, which did always bother me, but until I had a postpartum body, that was my only insecurity. When I come onto this site, I look at the photos of mothers who have great bodies and complain about them, and I only wish I could find a body (or boobs in general) that looked as bad as mine, to make myself feel normal. My breasts are sagged much more than those who post on this site. My nipples aren’t always as big, as they have expanded since I am pregnant, but they were never matching-at least not after I gave birth to my daughter, over 5 years ago. My stomach is a road map of stretch marks, and while I know it’s not attractive, i can live with that. My breasts are my issue. They don’t even sit right in 99% of all bras which makes me self-conscious about wearing shirts that show even a tiny crack of cleavage.

I decided that I should submit my body photos to the site to 1: show women their bodies are not bad at all, and 2: in case someone does have breasts like mine, to let them know they are not alone. Maybe I will update again after I have baby # 2…

Thanks so much for reading my story!

    Hey Girl! Well, first off – you don’t look bad at all. Second, thank you for sharing, ’cause my boobs are starting to look like that and I see what you mean how they are “worse” than what some other women post on here but really they are not bad. You should do some Google searches and trust me, you will feel better about yourself. You’ve got centerfold boobs compared to some that I have seen! If it makes you feel any better, I’m on my first pregnancy (due next month) and as I said my boobs are starting to look like yours AND I HAD A BOOB JOB LAST YEAR! Ugh…my pregnancy was a total surprise (my husband and I are thrilled) but I didn’t think I was having children and had always been self-concious of my small, yet floppy breasts which still managed to have stretch marks and huge aereolas. And they were far apart too. I used to call them Susan because they were far apart like Susan Sarandon’s eyes. LOL. Ahyhow, I ogot this great boob job and they had a beautiful shape, though still had droopy nips despite a lift. And JUST WHEN THEY SETTLED and began to look great I got knocked up. Now, $6,000 later, they are getting droopy and saggy again (remind me of tube socks) and I have new stretch marks. On the bright side, I don’t even care because I am just so excited that they are leaking and that it looks like I can breast feed despite my implants which were inserted through my aereolas in an attempt to give me a ‘lift’ which didn’t work. :) Rest easy knowing that you gave your baby the best start in life and after you are finished you can get your boobs done if you are really that unhappy with them. Oh and I too have cellulite, which I’ve always had and has only gotten worse. It’s on my butt, back of my thighs, inner thighs, outer thighs and front thighs down to my knees. I am 34 and haven’t worn shorts in public since I was 13!!!! I am not really overweight either, just bad genes. And I am covered in varicose veins that are coming out of my vagina. It looks like someone chucked a spoonful of hamburger helper at my labia. LOL. Sounds horrible, but I try and focus on the good things. I may hate how my legs look but at least I can walk right? And I don’t have a face-eating tumor. You look like you are in great shape! Don’t get too down on yourself. Feel better and have a great day!

    What I see is a goddess of fertility! Look at your side profile: breasts resting gently on a round belly. You know, they would make statues honoring women with your shape centuries ago. And look at your skin! Gorgeous! To your children, your body is their comfort and nourishment. You are beautiful and perfectly made.

    Thank you for sharing. My first thought seeing your pics was, “Wow, so beautiful.” My second thought….”Hey, that’s my body.” That is why I say thank you… because of you being so brave to share, I can maybe look at my body with the same admiration I feel looking at yours. You are beautiful :-)

    I hope your husband tells you this regularly, you are beautiful. I think that pregnant women and those who show signs that they have give life to a child are as lovely if not more lovely than those skinny models that the media says women should look like. Don’t let anyone including your self tell you otherwise.

    Thanks, everyone! You have all made me feel a bit better about myself! I am glad to hear that there are some ladies out there that are happy to see these pictures! I was afraid of coming on here (after a month of waiting for my story and pictures to be posted!) and seeing negative comments. Thanks again :)

    As you mantioned posting for women, as a man I’m a little hesitant to post a response but as you say you’re unhappy I think it’s justified. I’m interested in how men and women view figures differently hence I’ve noted a LOT of relevant comments on forums. I appreciate that your contentment is not determined by the point of view of men, but I think it’s still worth me saying that a LOT of men – and probably the majority as far as I can tell – actually think the shape of your breasts represents perfection. That ceretainly applies to me and I’d say your figure overall is absolutely beautiful. I can’t fully explain the disparity between the thinking of men and women, but I’d guess that women get used to their breasts the way they were and many have difficulty embracing the change they see. As a man, I don’t have that perspective. It doesn’t even cross my mind to view your breasts as “sagging” – instead they strike me as womanly and sensual, representing a lovely sort of maturity linked to motherhood. I really hope you can come round to my way of thinking on this!

    If you can’t find bras that fit, well, neither can most people! Go to Nordstroms, or a specialty bra store that does things like make custom bras, and get yourself properly fitted. No Victoria’s Secret. No Cacique. No Fredericks of Hollywood. Go to a pro. Find the right sizes/brands. Write that stuff down. Go online and search for cheaper ones on Ebay (good bras cost up into the $80-$120 range – you can get them for $20-$30 on Ebay). It feels so much better to have proper support! Also, your breasts look better than mine (never pregnant, 33). Here’s a helpful site: http://www.007b.com/breast_gallery.php to see what normal breasts look like on a variety of women.
