I'd like my AA-Cups back now, please.
And me? I just can't stand them. I never in a million years thought I'd say I wouldn't enjoy having a large bosom, but please take these from me as soon as possible.
I'm pregnant with my third child, and we all know that what comes with territory of child bearing comes growing gazongas. My first trimester I didn't change size at all. In fact, that's probably why I had no idea I was pregnant until the 10th week! But once I hit my second trimester, it was game over for me. My athletic, size zero body sporting very manageable AA-Cups grew 10 inches in waist and four cup sizes in a matter of 7 weeks!
The belly I can deal with, the melons I can't. Who likes these things? It's nearly impossible for me to find a bra that fits correctly since I have a small rib cage, and these suckers are heavy (no pun intended)! Since I can't find a proper fitting bra that costs less than $75 in a 30-32 D, I'm dealing with lovely back and shoulder pain that is honestly tolerable, but more a nuisance than anything else. But seriously, if you had a choice... would you want gigantic milk maids on your chest?
Sure, when I started this journey of motherhood I had a decent sized rack for my frame. Pregnancy and feeding two babies took it's toll, and what I was left with was an AA-cup. At first, I was depressed about it. Lets be honest- our society thinks of a "womanly" figure being that of big tittays and a Kardashian butt. That I will never have, but having so much of what made me feel like a woman be taken away from me was definitely hard at first.
Then there came the pluses.
I would make slutty tops look wholesome, because I wouldn't be showing any boob. I could go running in a light weight sports bra for several miles and not have the "jiggle" issue. Those tiny bikini tops, well they cover everything on a AA-cup ta-ta! Need a new bra? Just go to the pre-teen department! I'd save SO much money and get something cute looking. Oh, and the fact that I never had buttons pulling on a button down shirt was downright priceless.
Now that I'm pregnant again and my baby feeders are growing exponentially, I can't help but want my flat chest back (my flat abs, too... but in good time). It was more fun to stuff my bra when necessary to fill out a dress than it is to stuff my girls in to a shirt without completely spilling out.
Sure, these "things" will eventually serve a great purpose in providing nourishment for my unborn child, and some things are worth suffering for because of the ultimate goal or reward. But isn't there a way to make AA-cups just as productive and efficient as full-figured ones? Please?
