Breast Size and Self Esteem in Women
Breast size makes a lot of women uncomfortable to the extend of suffering from low self esteem forgetting that it is genetic and therefore beyond their control. Whether large or small, breasts are primarily meant for nourishment of the young ones and their size should not make a woman suffer any misgiving. Undergoing cosmetic surgery and or using of implants can only heighten the agony of those uncomfortable with their bust size.
Many women, a majority in fact, are not comfortable with their breast size. Unknown to many people breast size and shape is actually genetic and therefore can only be controlled through surgical breast reduction or use of implants that increase the size and change the shape. Just how big is too big and how small is too small? Most women suffer from low self esteem as a result of their breast size.
Are you comfortable with your breast size? Comfortable or not, the primary function of the mammary glands is actually to feed the young ones if and when they are born. The size of the breasts has nothing to do with the amount of milk produced by lactating mothers yet it still plays a major role in men’s choice of a mate. Larger breasts are often looked at as being beautiful and more nourishing by a majority of men and this has pushed very many women into the hands of cosmetic surgeons in a bid to get that perfect bust line irrespective of the danger such cosmetic surgery poses.
I do not deny the fact that the two glands have a cosmetic value, I do not deny the fact that they really contribute to how confident our women are of their beauty and personality, but focusing so much on these twin glands is actually missing the point. Breasts may be beautiful; they may have cosmetic value, but remember their primary function!
One has to realize that only very few women, and I mean very few, have age and gravity defying breasts especially after going through the throes of childbirth and subsequent breastfeeding. One doesn’t have to feel bad if they aren’t proud of their breast size. It is genetic and therefore beyond anyone’s control. Should you resign to fate?
Rather than go for cosmetic surgery that may turn out to be life threatening in the end, I would suggest that you dress your shape appropriately. Different clothes have been designed to fit different shapes. If your breasts are a little on the larger size, there are blouses and dresses that may either accentuate this look or give your bust line a reduced look. If your breasts appear too small for your liking, do not go for those implants, and neither should you spend a fortune on breast size augmenting creams, they don’t usually work. Just find the perfect blouse or dress for your bust. Padded bras may also help to enhance the very image you want to present.
Last but not least is a word of caution. Irrespective of the size of your bust, it all boils down to self confidence. You have to love yourself the way you are for other people to be attracted to you. None of us is perfect. We all have our little failings and whatever it is that makes you uncomfortable about your body may actually be a strength in the eyes of your beholder.
Breasts are for nourishment of our little ones, whatever attention they may bring us from members of the opposite sex, be it negative or positive is only secondary. Dress your size and regain your self confidence.
