Weekly Awesome 2.29: Happy Leap Day!

February 29, 2012


As my boards continue to grow in number (this week I added a board for Beautiful People and one for noses. Because I like noses. Why? Is that weird? Heh.) I wish I could just dump all the applicable ones into one group to share with those of you who are not interested in also seeing all my Doctor Who pins (of which there is a plethora). What I can do, which is only slightly less inconvenient for you, if to link to you all of my boards and you can pick the ones that are interesting to you.

~Disney, I am so seriously disappointed in you. Thank god this isn’t at DisneyLAND. For your sake, I mean. Because, Disney, my nine-year-old daughter would stand around outside it loudly schooling everyone within earshot on her feelings on this exhibit.
~I like what this article says about the leggings-as-pants debate. Ultimately, it’s not for one woman to decide what another should wear.
~In the same vein, here’s an article about taking back horizontal stripes. And, somewhat unrelated, boy do I have boot-envy now. (And also somewhat unrelated? There’s totally a Doctor Who reference in there so it’s like my geekness totally married my feminism and had a baby and that baby is this article. And it has awesome yellow Docs.)
~Small boobs are awesome. Somewhat related: I went 20’s to my high school prom and, inspired by a gag in Thoroughly Modern Millie based on how pearls lay on large breasts, I decided to flatten my boobs for the authentic flapper look. I don’t have any problem with my own boob size, but I also love small boobs and it was fun (well, and painful) to have differently sized, er, fronts that night.
~Incredible photos taken with the goal of helping the women “see past who they think they are.”
~If you read only one link from this post this week, read this one. And then bookmark it and refer back to it when you need to.

    I would trade my 34G’s for small breasts any day! I mean, I love my girls, and think they’re beautiful…but clothes shopping is a pain in the butt, I have to search high and low to find bras that even fit me, and even higher and lower to find ones that I can afford, and having small breasts means you never put on that absolutely adorable dress in a store just to realize that there’s no way it will work with your breasts. Every time I see a halter top I have a little internal cry.

    Ever notice how as far as breasts go, the grass is usually greener on the other side? It always baffles me as to why somebody would WANT to get G-cup implants, when women who have that size naturally usually end up having reductions? (Mine aren’t going anywhere, despite their size and the clothes-buying annoyance they don’t bother me and I don’t see any sense in having surgery to remove something that isn’t a problem). It makes no sense.

    I have small breasts, even smaller than an A cup. Bra shopping IS frustrating. My mother, whose breasts are also small, has simply resorted to buying “beginner’s bras” in the girls section at Target. I haven’t yet, because I’d like to think there is something sexier out there for small-breasted women! Most bras and clothing are designed aesthetically for somewhere around a C cup, I think. I do fine with most clothing, but if it’s a tailored sort of top, it often just looks empty where the darts are sewn in for the bust. That said, I am happy with my breasts; I just wish there were more options for very small or very large-breasted women in bras and clothing.
