Right now I'm wondering if what I was saving up for a trip to Japan… - love like me ・ 日記

Right now I'm wondering if what I was saving up for a trip to Japan might not be better spent on breast reduction surgery (I'm not horribly close to having enough money for either, but I've got enough that I've started to think about it). It was kinda cool being a 34D at 14, and that would have been fine if it stopped there...

Lots of people probably don't realize it, but once breasts reach a certain size, a normal bra that works fine for average-sized breasts becomes little more than something to put dents in your shoulders and keep the actual offenders far enough from each other that your cleavage doesn't get all sweaty. They don't really provide much in the way of lift, and only enough support to keep jiggling non-painful.

But if you're bigger than a C-cup, you don't have any alternative. Sports bras, if you can find one in your size, merely cause your boobs to stick together and bounce painfully as one. And you don't dare wear anything without a wire in it. You just sigh and get something with padded straps, with faith that if something better was possible, someone would have invented it by now.

Most stores don't even carry 36DDD (yep, that's my size), so I end up grabbing a 38DD that's not too hideous (most large bras are) because it's way cheaper than special-ordering the right size.

Don't even get me started on buying tops that fit around my boobs and don't make me look like I weigh 200lbs. It doesn't help that although I have a small waist, I also have a ghetto-booty and mother-earth thighs. I might as well just be fat.

:( You're not a hideous freak. Having enough female friends, I've known women with similar situations.

I couldn't give you advice on a choice other than that, for me, I'd probably opt for the reduction. But, I'm a guy. And... if I woke up in a girl's body tomorrow, I wouldn't be like "Oh! Squee! Time to go bang all the hot straight guys I could never have!" I'd be more like "I. Need. To. Get. Back. Into. My. Own. Body. Now."* So, what I'd do really isn't relevant. ;(

*I'm sure that most females who woke up in a man's body would have a similar reaction. I'm assuming most people that didn't have some sort of gender identity disorder would have that same reaction. LOL

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't mind being suddenly in a man's body. Not that I have hardcore gender issues, just that I'm not particularly girly and there's a lot about being female that just SUCKS HARD (for me, anyway, YMMV and all that).

I'm almost convinced I was a gay man in a past life. If I believed in those sorts of things. But it certainly would explain a lot...
