Small Natural or Big Fake Breasts
I read an article about breasts implants in Stylist which investigated why we are so focused on bigger breasts. Funnily enough, I remember speaking to a couple of ladies from Stylist about breasts and they commented that it’s great to have smaller breasts as you can wear almost everything. All the long neckline tops and dresses are a forbidden subject for big breasted women. I wonder what is the percentage of women who actually want bigger breasts. If we took a representative sample of UK women, meaning actually including women with naturally big breasts, I believe the results will be much lower than we all think. Naturally big breasted women would actually tell you that they’d loved to have smaller breasts as they are not that heavy and you can wear more types of clothes. I myself have small breasts and many times I’ve been told by big breasted women that they’re jealous of me. I must admit small breasts are very comfortable and as long as I use push-up bra sometimes, I can really wear almost everything. I’ve actually noticed that the classic clothes are hardly available for women with breasts bigger than size C. The clothes for big breasted women are usually very sexual, they have lower cleavage and they show off more of female shapes. So women with naturally big breasts have two choices in style: sweetheart or trump. They either look very sexy or wear loose jumpers.
This lack of choice has a huge effect on their confidence in personal and professional life. In personal life they’re either desired by every man, but mostly for casual sex, or they’re invisible to men when they dress like trumps. In professional life they are not treated seriously and not thought of as intelligent when they dress like sweetheart. When they dress like trump, they probably have a back office role and are used by everyone as a personal servant. It might seem harsh what I’m saying but if you take a look at Cinderella, you know what I mean. As soon as she dressed up as a sweetheart, she swooped the prince off his feet. But do we really want to be just trophy wives? No matter what your breasts size, we all have aspirations and they shouldn’t be disregarded just because you have big breasts.
Let’s come back to what is attractive to men. Even though my breasts are only cup A, I never had problem with attracting men’s attention. I remember asking my ex-boyfriend and many of my male friends is breasts size really so important to them. Majority of them said that it doesn’t matter at all. My ex-boyfriend said that as long as they fit in his hand, they’re perfect. A good friend of mine told me once that a woman needs to have either nice size breasts or lovely rounded bottom for him to take notice.
The evolution shows us that breasts were one of the attributes that men were looking for. No breasts meant that a female was either a child or infertile. Therefore any breasts were generally desirable but its size didn’t matter that much. Actually, the bigger the breasts, the harder it was to run from danger, so men were rather inclined to go for females with breasts no bigger than cup C.
Although bigger breasts are one of the signals indicating reproductive potential, today they are usually sought after in women considered only for casual sex. In permanent partner men look for an average size breasts. Big breasts in permanent mate might increase the risk of mate’s infidelity. Hence the wives usually have small to average size breasts, whereas lovers have big breasts.
I believe that I don’t have to explain further that it really isn’t that great having big breasts. It doesn’t help in finding a permanent partner nor in achieving professional success. It can actually decrease your chances as explained before. Therefore next time you consider a breast enlargement procedure, think about all the potential consequences not only the medical risks related to surgery.
