My Very Own Pair of Boobs
I didn't hit puberty until I was almost 14 and until then I felt like a baby. Walking around school and seeing other girls who were more developed, while I was still stuffing my bra to make my boobs look bigger was pretty embarrassing. Having no hips and skinny little legs didn't help either, wearing kids-size jeans wasn't exactly a confidence booster. I had the body of an 11-year-old boy. Puberty for me seemed like it happened overnight. When I was in ninth grade throughout the school year I went from being flat chested, to being a B cup. Then I went to camp for the summer and came home with D cups. Now I am sitting at my kitchen table wearing a bra that gives my boobs the support they need nothing more nothing less. (BRABAR’s Soft Day Bra) I hate traditional bras with a cup and underwire, the kind of bra my friends and I would get from Pink. I do not think I ever realized how much I detested the traditional bra until Covid hit and we had to stay inside. I never wore a bra and when I did it was either a sports bra or one of my favorite BRABAR bras. I’ve basically given up on real bras and just wear what makes me comfortable. After all, I’m wearing the bra for myself not anyone else; so why shouldn’t my bra make me feel like my best self? Why should I wear an uncomfortable bra, when the bra is for me? I found myself asking these questions as I got dressed for my first day of in-person school, for the first time in almost two years. Of course, I needed to look phenomenal. I was wearing a pink thin strap tank top and chose my horribly uncomfortable 32DD push-up bra. I called that bra “boob jail” and on my first day back to school I did not put my boobs in jail, I put them in my orange HUG Lace Halter bralette. I ended up wearing ripped jeans, my favorite blue high tops, my lucky thong (it has batman on it), mismatched socks, a pink tank top, and a bright orange bralette so obviously poking out for the world to see. Now I’m 19 and I only wear a real bra when my mom tells me to put on a real bra (even though I’m 19) Being a person with boobs doesn’t always feel so great, but there is no reason to not wear what is the most comfortable. They’re my boobs, it’s my bra and I’m just going to do me.
