Raisins in the Sun


Today I noticed that I lost weight, but not in a good way. I lost weight on the one part of my body that I wish would grow: my breasts. I'm a small-chested person and I've learned to overcome my insecurities about it. I don't stuff my bra, chant 'I must increase my bust' 100 times before bed, nor have I ever considered getting a boob job. But that was all before today, when my strapless bra practically slid off of me.


In my family, most of the women are small chested, but I'm the smallest. Somehow I managed to make it through puberty, despite being raised around a cousin with triple-D sized breasts and being the only girl in fifth grade who struggled to fill a training bra. My mother tried to reassure me that I'd grow. She said she was once my size, but her chest eventually grew. Of course, none of that happened until she got pregnant. Since that wasn't in the forseeable future, I had to learn to love my California raisins.

Anyhow, I wore a strapless bra to work, but I had to run to the bathroom to adjust it several times. I would walk for about five minutes, and then I'd feel like the darn thing had fallen to my knees. My colleagues must have thought I had food poisoning or something, because I kept racing to the bathroom. I've worn this bra several times before and nothing like this has happened. What causes shrinking breasts? Is it a sign of weight loss? Or is it a more serious problem? Until I figure out what the deal is, I'm breaking out the contour cream and chanting 'I must increase my bust.' I know I won't leave the Itty Bitty Titty Committee anytime soon. But a girl can dream. *sigh*

How can you expect me to take this seriously when you call the post "Raisins in the Sun"! lol
But seriously, that is alarming, but it's okay! Don't fret. It happens. Boobs are fat, you probably just lost some weight (albeit not where you wanted to.) That's happened to me, and my friends and fam commented openly on it because they're insensitive bastards. Though, mine never really returned to their original size...but that won't happen to you! I promise!

Alright, I'm going to take your word for it, Juicy! But if they don't come back, I'm going to blame you! 'I must, I must, I must increase my bust....' *whew* I'm almost up to 100!

at least you're not losing it from your butt! it's easy to use a padded bra but i have yet to see a padded pair of panties at any major (or minor) store. did i just use the word panties???

You did say panties, but I forgive you! I can afford to lose the weight from my butt, I'd be more than happy for some of that to go away! Maybe we can trade ...

My breasts are practically nil as well. I feel your pain! Btw, the GND/GAcross the Street paragraph ruled. I'm going to steal it without your permission, okay?
I rule the Jungle!
