A surprisingly controversial topic for appendages that occur on many humans. In a recent discussion on how to discuss breast and bra size, we realized that this topic really needed to be discussed out in the open, much like our discussions on body hair. Review to come! Al Rosenberg: My dad, actually.

I come from a family of small-breasted women, but I hit a 36B by third grade. Melinda Pierce: My best friend in the fifth grade gave me her hand-me-down bras.

She was the first to educate me on the Breast development stories of wearing stylish bras at such a young age. Wendy Browne: Much like with hair removalbreasts were something I just figured out through osmosis. I knew my sister, 13 years my elder, had them, my mom had them, so it stood to reason that I would get them too at some point.

What purpose they served, I really had no clue. I mean there were sex-ed classes and my girlfriends. I do remember the anticipation for getting boobs though—that was a big deal for many of my girlfriends. But mostly, most of all, the internet. And novels my mother got free with Cosmopolitan magazine i. This is for biological facts. No idea! It was in the ether I guess and articles about extreme augmentation in, again, Cosmopolitan. Cathryn Sinjin-Starr : Probably my mother and the internet.

My mom was trying to convince me to wear a bra. I refused—the straps would show. How dare!

I still refused. Great logic. Al: As a pre-teen and teenager, I clung to the idea that my boobs were what made me attractive. I wore push-up bras, plunging necklines, dangling necklaces that disappeared in artificially constructed cleavage. And my grandmother hated it. She was constantly telling me to cover-up, would tug my sweaters closed, or my shirts higher.

I felt simultaneous ashamed and proud of my breasts, which by sixteen had reached 38F. Melinda: I popped out to a full B in late middle school. The boys noticed, and I have honestly hated my breasts ever since. Carly: I was an object of catcalling when I was 12 years old. I was in the middle of puberty and noticing my breasts were getting larger. No one had told me in sex ed that this sort of thing would happen, and I was terrified. By the time I was 16 and wearing 34C bras likely an incorrect size as I know nowand regularly walking around town with my friends, experiencing catcalling became a normal occurrence.

It was so confusing; I knew being Breast development stories at from a car was scary and something I disliked, but I simultaneously believed this is just what it means to be desired. Well, turns out we were Breast development stories wrong, and I was likely above a DD cup back then.

Wendy: In middle school, I discovered that breasts were a symbol of female social status. This was extremely frustrating because I had none to speak of at the time. There was one girl at school who developed early and got lots of attention from boys. I was teased by both family and friends about it. I begged my mom for padded bras, which she obliged me with eventually, but even that was embarrassing because gym class revealed the truth.

Jubilee in Uncanny X-Men Annual 13 represented my reality:. Ginnis: Pretty early on, I learned they were a feminine status symbol. I definitely wanted bigger ones, but I think two important things kept my experience with growing breasts largely positive. One, my mom never shamed me about them or even for wanting bigger ones. At the same time, my mom also would frequently go sans Breast development stories, which again was no shame, it was a matter of comfort.

I got the best of both worlds in that way, thanks Mom! I learned they were a feminine status symbol. I put my shirt on, immediately, because I knew that I was a girl and that girls became women and women were the ones with the breasts I know differently now; neither Cosmopolitannor life, had yet introduced me to trans people or mastectomies or even cis men with a lot of breast fat ; I could see a direct line between my own body and illicitness. You were supposed to have big boobs, and men were supposed to like them for secret reasons, and women were supposed to be against this but also perform this breast-having.

Very confusing. Friends, enemies, others: sorry for looking at your tits. I was just trying to figure out what they meant. I know I probably made you feel bad. Ginnis: Yeah, I would also like to Claire in that apology, because I so did the same thing. I just wanted to understand better! Finnicky, uncomfortable piece of shit. I also occasionally bind. This is not for gendered reasons often, but just to make the masculine clothing I wear now fall straighter on my frame. Breasts get in the way of suits, I find. Melinda: Ugh. I am now a full D thanks to having two kids, and I long for the day when I can have a reduction.

They swell and hurt during PMS. I also have a lot of back pain. I remember my first pediatrician made me cry because he said if I really wanted to breastfeed my daughter, then I would have to force her to feed on me until the milk came in. I found a new pediatrician. So, my breasts became little failures to me and me only.

I do feel guilty about Breast development stories. I have a good friend who battled breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. Wendy: My breasts finally decided to show up in high school, though they were still small at 34A. The rest of me started to develop though, and it turned out that I had a great pair of legs. Basically, I was still bound to this idea of needing a body part to attract the boys.

It had nothing to do with how I felt about myself until I was much older and realized that I should not give a damn about what anyone else thinks about my body. When I hit my twenties, I finally started to appreciate my smaller breasts. Well, I was still envious of the cleavage my friends had, but at least I could find clothes that worked for me, and I loved being able to go braless. Then I had. I loved my pregnant breasts. I loved having cleavage for the first time in my life, though I then could empathize with the discomfort of women who have to regularly remind people where their eyes are located, and my commute home usually involved stripping out of my bra on hot days.

Then came breastfeeding, where the asymmetry of breasts really became obvious. As much as I do miss my perky pre-child breasts, I did truly enjoy breastfeeding my girls and am so happy I had that privilege. Ginnis: I recently got resized, Breast development stories I am ificantly larger than I have been in the past.

This has come with gaining weight as I get older. Admittedly, I do like my breasts bigger. Again, it is that double-edged sword. Growing up, I was skinny and petite which was envied by many of my girlfriends, and I intuitively knew it was a sort of social power. But I wanted to be the curvy hourglass—I liked the Marilyn Monroe compared to the Audrey Hepburn the bombshell and the gamine being like the only Breast development stories, ha!

I also had stick straight hair and wanted curly hair. My curly haired girlfriends wanted straight hair. Claire: Showgirls contained certain truths: I like having nice tits. And my body is comfier not trying to counter their strength. Cathryn : In all fairness, I always wear them. Boobs are confusing. My biggest issue is that I have very rounded shoulders, so the straps are aaaaaalways falling down, unless I get racerback.

So I live with the never-ending game of strap-pickup. Button-up shirts? Going to have some boob-gap unless I pay for the extra button, or go a larger size and alter down. Blouses are often too short after the breasts pull them up. Melinda: Like Al, the button shirts never work.

I can usually find okay basics at places like Target if I just want some tank tops, but now I end up buying a lot of clothes online and crossing my fingers they fit well. Ginnis: Now, button up shirts are largely impossible for me, but since I generally like looser fitting tops, I am pretty okay on finding shirts that fit. It is other areas that concern me more, but that is a whole other roundtable.

Cathryn : I am a big girl, but without big-girl boobs. While that means my not-so-bodacious-babes never strain a top, it does mean some necklines can fall a bit lower than originally intended…I am not complaining about this.

Feminism has made me feel different about my body in general. More accepting, but I feel my breast-love journey was sort of isolated from most of the rest of my life. I think being a mom made me think about them differently.

The kids use them like pillows all the time. Wendy: For me, maturity and the reality of breast-related issues were the key to learning to respect and appreciate breasts. I used to envy women with much larger breasts than mine, but now I understand how painful that can be. Breastfeeding has made me more aware of the fact that these things actually serve a really important purpose, no matter what some societies have come to believe. Ginnis: Wendy, The Scar Project is so beautiful. I think having a largely positive and privileged experience with my breasts growing up, that feminism has helped in the general sense of opening my eyes up to all the various body types and idiosyncrasies out there, but feminism has certainly played an important role in other more reviled body parts.

Claire: Not mine, so much, maybe, directly.
