Hey you, lets talk about boobs. Big, small, perky, jiggly – we’ve all got them, right?
Since we can all agree to that, I thought I’d tell you about my little epiphany I had a couple of weeks ago. I was pretty bored, scrolling through pr requests (girl better werk) when I came across a lingerie company, Little Women, asking for bloggers to collaborate with. I squealed and proceeded to frantically scribble out a very eager email because I mean, who wouldn’t want free lingerie… that’s the dream, right!?
When the lovely Belinda got back to me, it suddenly hit me, a huge pang of self doubt like a brick to the face. The truth is, I’ve been through many stages of love, hate and everything else in between when it comes to having smaller boobs and the body confidence that comes with it.
When I was younger, I felt like it made me less womanly. I used to shy away from boys asking about bra sizes or if I was swimming with friends, I’d buy some sort of push up boost extravaganza contraption and tie the straps real tight so they looked bigger – even if it left me with red marks. I envied my friends that had bigger boobs and felt like I always had to be covered away because I wasn’t ‘womanly’ enough.
But, the way I see it now that I’m growing older and wiser to the media, is that us girls always want what we can’t have. You only have to look at that scene with Gabby from Love Island a couple of weeks back to prove that, I sobbed because I knew exactly how she felt. To show how ok I am with my little bubs, I shot these photos… yes, I put images of myself in a bra onto the internet – shocker.
If you’ve not got huge boobs like me, then you’ll know yourself how much confidence this takes. But you know what? Ever since I realised ‘bigger is not better’ and what I’ve been blessed with ain’t all that bad, I’ve learnt to love my body a lot more. Maybe you’re reading this post because you’re lacking a lil’ self love too, so I thought I’d write a list for my fellow small boob society friends so we can all finally agree that all of our bodies, regardless of how big or small, are hot af.
Why small boobs are great boobs.
1. Bra-free errday.
Which is probably my favourite thing about having smaller boobs, letting them free. Running to the shop? no one will bat an eyelid if you couldn’t be bothered to pop a bra on. Found a really cute backless dress? No need for strapless bras, just stick on some fancy nipple covers and you’re a-okay.
2. The pretty underwear.
We can wear pretty much any type of lingerie we please. Bralettes, lacy numbers, you name it we can flaunt it. Even on days where we fancy a little boost, shove on a push up bra and you can fake it till you make it. Strongly recommend looking at the Little Women Lingerie
selection, everything is stunning.
3. We’re in good company.
Kate moss, Keira Knightley, Mila Kunis, Cameron Diaz, the small boob babe list goes on. Try and tell me you don’t fancy at least one of them, I dare you.
4. It’s impossible to look slutty.
We can wear V neck ensembles right down to our yin yang if we fancied and still wouldn’t look slutty. Which is a perk in itself, as you don’t receive any unwanted attention from boob boys.
Back, front, side, belly-flop, you name it – we can sleep it.
