I’m 35, and finally coming to the realization that I just really don’t like my large breasts. So, I’ve started thinking about breast reduction, but find myself conflicted. Something about it feels like cheating, or betraying, the body that otherwise has served me so well.
I would love to hear from the Offbeat Homies — both from folks who have had reductions or who have thought about it but took another course. -Claire
I have thought about getting a breast reduction since the moment in Junior High where they became DDs, seemingly overnight. One of my closest friends, who had the same size breasts as myself, got hers reduced from DDs to As — and she was ecstatic about it! Yeah, the process sucked, but the end result has been bringing her joy for years. I remember being super-jealous as I watched her pore through porn magazines, getting to hand-pick what her new breasts would look like (breast size + nipple fashion).
90% of the reasons I’ve never lopped ’em off is of my crippling fears of doctors, surgery, stitches, pain, etc. Then there’s the 10% reason of, “aw, I feel like I’d miss the big ‘ol girls.” (They’re good cuddlers.)
Who else here has considered altering their boobies? What all did you take into account when making your ultimate choice?
