I’ve talked a good bit lately about my goals and motivation for getting in better shape, but I have to admit, I do have some superficial reasons as well. I’ll be touching on a few the over the next few weeks, but I’m starting out today with one I think most women can relate to.
I went from a tiny B cup to a C+ in the past 2 years, and it wasn’t some sort of freakish 30-year-old delayed onset puberty thing either. I wish. Nope, it’s because I gained 25 pounds. I’d love to say I got all curvy and voluptuous, but really, the fat just pops out in random places. Like the boobies. Yes, my cup size got bigger, but it’s because there’s just a ton of tit mush going on all over the place. Not because they’re just huge glorious ta-tas. ::sad face:: I liken it to those little capsules you got as a kid that just expand overnight when placed in water. Except my lady chest hasn’t expanded into anything cool like dinosaurs or cars, they’ve just oozed out everywhere.
I know I’m not the only one with expanding boob issues, so I’m putting it out there for ladies everywhere, so you know you’re not alone.
Warning: Boob pictures below. (Not those kind silly!)
I think we can all agree that this is one of the biggest boob faux pas: The quad-boob. Or in my case, the tri-boob. Fitted shirts? Think again mama.
Second no-no? The side boob. Tank top? No thank you. I’ll stick with hiding this mess under a huge sweater. Thank God it’s fall.
And last, but certainly not least, the back fat that typically accompanies the overflowing boobie-ness. Not so hot in a bikini. Again, thank God for sweaters and cooler weather.
Now, I could obviously buy a larger, full figured bra, but I’m stubborn and refuse to do so. Plus, I am in love with some of the bras I already own, and can’t stand to part with them.
While I love the idea of being more chesty without surgical enhancements, this sort of boobaliciousness just isn’t cutting it for me. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that as I continue to work out and get in better shape, that the boob invasion will start to recede. Until then, I’m sticking with the frumpy mom sweaters.
Do you suffer from the often embarrassing side or quad boob? What’s your strategy? Hide it, ignore it, or do something to fix it?
