    Default A discussion on everything breast related.

    That's ok @TheGooch I understand everyone will have differing opinions

    If she was so good at covering herself up how did you know she didn't wear a bra or shaved her armpits? If she told you well that's fine. But if you could tell by looking at her that she was braless, that's another thing. For me anyway.

    ETA: I couldn't care less if people don't shave. I just don't like seeing breasts flapping out or nipples poking through because people don't feel the need to wear a bra. I just think it lacks basic manners and decency.

    My view on breasts has changed so very much since my Stage 2 ductal carcinoma breast cancer diagnosis, last year. Untreated, my survival odds weren't good.

    Prior to that, I used my breasts on occasions as fashion accessories (in my 20s), and I would like to think it was tastefully done. It was frivolous and fun.

    Having children, and successfully breastfeeding them until 18 months, shifted my view of breasts quite significantly. They nourished my babies, and helped to cuddle and settle my babies. Definitely created a strong bond.

    But when the cancer came, Lucy was 18 months, and was very quickly weaned. Straight into horrendous 6 months of chemotherapy, then double mastectomy, then radiotherapy for 6 weeks. It's hard to watch the skin burn/peel/ulcerate off where your breasts used to be.

    I mourned their loss for quite a while. I didn't feel like a maternal woman. I looked at photos of me feeding the kids, and would cry and cry.

    Now I have had an implant-reconstruction, I sort of feel better. They're all scarred and discoloured, but I have breasts again. And I'm alive ☺

    My breasts fed my kids...and now I feel pretty 'meh' about them. I have really small breasts since I ceased breastfeeding...as in wear crop tops because underwire bras don't really fit me small. I don't feel like my breasts define me as a person and I doubt that anyone even looks at my chest area to know if I'm wearing a bra or not.

    As for others...whatever they want. I don't have issues with bras digging in and hurting my shoulders, or back aches from holding up large breasts so I'm not judging. In fact, I feel really lucky to have this almost non existent breasts. They don't get in the way, are too small to sag or be annoying, and are easily checked for lumps.
