When I was 12, boys would ball up napkins and toss them down my cleavage from across the lunch table.
When I was 14, a girl referred to my bra as an “over the shoulder boulder holder” in front of my entire acting class.
When I was 16, my friend pulled my bra out of my suitcase during an overnight trip and challenged my other classmates to guess what size I wore.
Why do people think that large breasts are something to be openly gawked at?
I know this isn’t just a plus size issue, since Dolly Parton has been a punchline since as long as I can remember and she’s definitely not a PSP.
A fellow blogger reminded me that as a petite person, she gets crazy comments about how small she is and its just as insulting as the comments I get about my size. Maybe its just having an extreme body that makes people think they can voice their opinions… but if I had an extra eyeball or something, would people be so open with their comments to me? Doubtful.
These days my bra label has enough “d’s” to spell words like “dedicated” and honestly, I love it. My “Twins” are probably the biggest perk of being a plus size princess. Boobs make your waist look smaller, make tops and dresses cuter and… they’re just fun! But sometimes I feel like my boobs are just a punchline.
Does anyone else struggle with this?
