The women vs. your bust

Since the woman is in her first years of life, she begins to have a relationship close with her body and her bust, and in many cases this relationship can be one of love or hate: the As women we are constantly struggling with our femininity and how we see ourselves.

We women are in constant struggle with our femininity and how we see ourselves.

For example, I remember perfectly in my adolescence, at the age of 16, that I went from having absolutely no no bust, turn me into a 34B! I'm not going to tell you lies, it was a difficult time for me where I had to accept that my body had changed and that I had to start looking for bras that fit adapted to my new needs.

I think it was at that moment that a fight began between me and my bras. I have to confess that I couldn't find any for myself, and many times I would buy any bra that made me look much more voluminous! I wasn't aware of what it was like really my bust and what were those intimate garments that my body needed in that precise moment of my life.

I am sure that this has not only happened to me, but to thousands of women around the world. For example, it is very common to find women who become pregnant and her bust turns 360º. I will always remember a friend who was a mother and had a hard time adapting to her new body: before it was 34B and after the pregnancy it was 38C. And how did it come to be? be accepted? Understanding that his body was willing to give life to another life, and that this change in his bust he was in charge of doing it Very cute, isn't it?

It also happened to me a lot that I compared myself with my friends who still had nothing bust. I envied them because they didn't have to deal with the discomfort of those bras with bows that so much they “hurt” me, nor with the uncomfortable padding that made me look like I had a borrowed bra. Read more about bows and cups here.
Even, There were days when I wore up to two tops to look like them.

I'll tell you a little about these stories, because I am sure that this type of "situation" has also happened to you where you you totally accept the appearance of your bust and compare yourself with other people.

And to no woman is a secret that in many cases, we tend to want what we do not have What do I want say with this? That the world has taken care of giving us such unattainable stereotypes, that we are never happy enough with how we look.

      Just like deep cups, full cups can be the “eternal enemies” of small busts. I will never forget a super young woman who She came to the store looking for full cup bras because they were the only ones she wore. At first glance, on top of the shirt you could see that the bra was too big for her and that he couldn't tell what size bust she was. When she walked into the locker room and showed me the bra I was wearing, I was surprised: she had too much bust small and was wearing a full cup triangle bra in her size, but her bust It did not fully fill the bra.

  • Bras with many structures:

    This bust size is very light, so it is not a good idea to search bras with built-in arches, underwires, or very complex structures. It is It is important to understand that this bust size does not need the same support as the rest of the busts in your day to day.

Lastly, I am going to talk to you about the large/very large bust. You can recognize it very easily: it has volume in the center, bottom, top and sides, and tends to be more united in the center.
