Bigger Boobs Equal Bigger Confidence?

Bigger Boobs Equal Bigger Confidence?
At home today, enjoying my day off, I decided to tune into MTV’s True Life: I don’t like my small breasts. They followed two young ladies on their quest to gain bigger breast without giving into plastic surgery. The first young lady, a go-go dancer, wanted bigger breast to help further her career. She also believes she will have more self confidence, despite her fiance’ telling her she is beautiful the way she is. She decides to order a supplement to “naturally” enhance her breast first. Fast forward to the end, the “natural” supplement doesn’t work and she decides to save money to get a breast enhancement. The second young lady, a freshman in college and professional dancer, wants bigger breast with hopes that it will help her land a position on a professional football team’s cheerleading squad. It doesn’t help that her mother is pushing her to do the surgery. In the end, through the help of a therapist, she decides that she doesn’t need bigger breast and that she is happy with the way she looks.

I don’t have the so-called “physical issue” these ladies have, I’m very well off in that area. BUT I have dealt with low self confidence in other physical areas. It’s a shame that society has placed it in our head that Double D’s, fair skin, straight hair, and/or a thin figure can gain confidence and acceptance in this world. We as women must accept our differences, stop seeking others opinion on what is “beautiful”, and stand up and say “I LOVE WHO I AM AND I AM BEAUTIFUL”!

    yeah, also being well endowed in that area…there are other parts of my body that I’m not comfy with, and to tell you the truth, the one about the parent AGREEING with her daughter on augmenting her figure… aren’t parents supposed to go along with the “you are perfect the way God made you” thingy? That was a little weird and eye opening for me.

    Hey JG,
    Thanks for your feedback. I was shocked at her mom! She just kept chipping away at her daughter’s confidence. I felt like she was just throwing jabs at her daughter because of her own insecurities. I’m glad the young lady decided not to listen to her mom.

    In my case, they decrease my confidence. I’m always self-confident, feel disproportionate, and I’m always concerned with sticking up because of them. They are also painful because I;m so small. I think people need to consider the possible negative consequences of having bigger boobs. You might think they look nice and they may give you more attention, but they can cause back problems and may give you attention that you don’t want.

    Diddy,
    Great comment! People just look at how it may look good and they’ll get attention from people (mostly guys). I know quite a few people who got breast reductions because of the health risks that comes with big breasts.

    Hmmm…bigger boobs, bigger confidence? no. only a heightened sense of the facade the person already lives behind. giving yourself something you think other people would enjoy to make yourself feel better?!!?!?!?! maybe for your husband…ok maybe not because even the husband would love everything about you when he has no one or THING else to compare you to. but it all goes back to women generally feeling beautiful and worthy no matter what. it’s a generational curse (if you look back at how women have been valued since the beginning) and we choose to accept it or reject it. if we can stop comparing ourselves to each other and desire to be the best for ourselves, there wouldn’t be much left to be insecure about…would there? dang. I’m preaching to myself too (definitely NOT about the boobies though).
