I’m sure many of you will understand this. I’ve had five children and breastfed four of them for extended lengths of time. Now, mind you, I was never one to be blessed with perky “girls” but as of lately I have decided I have “furniture syndrome”.
I’ll give you a minute to stop giggling at me…
Okay… Now add on the fact that I’ve also lost over 100 pounds and you will begin to understand why I have been contemplating doing something about it. The funny part is, I am still the same cup size I was 19 years, five children and 100+ pounds ago. It’s just all settled in a not so attractive place now.
So I am faced with a decision. Continue to live with my deflated balloons that resemble breasts when pushed back up where they are supposed to be with the right bra, get a breast reduction, or consider breast augmentation. I really don’t “need” any more bosom that I already have, but I’d love that void area to have fullness again.
Is there anyone here with me on this? I dread having to wear a bathing suit because I am constantly reaching down into my swimsuit to pull the girls back up where they are supposed to be hanging out.
Heaven forbid I consider wearing something with a “built in bra”. That is a joke in itself. My chest is heavy enough that it pulls the top downward leaving unwanted cleavage and I just end up looking saggy and unkempt. Or even worse, something with spaghetti straps or strapless. I haven’t done that since I was a teenager.
So tell me… are you/have you been in this boat? What are you considering… what have you done?
