My Biggest Insecurity.... - November 21st 2017, 06:22 AM

Okay first off, I don’t know where to put this thread so move it where ever it needs to be.

My biggest insecurity is my boobs. They are HUGE! I desperately want a breast reduction but of course there is so much risk and I’m only 16. I’m a perfectly healthy weight which article always say “lose weight... get smaller boobs”, that is not an option for me though. I have looked so much for a way to shrink it down. It’s hard for me to workout, if I wear a completely supportive bra it just makes them look even bigger. And not to mention, it makes me look fatter than I really am which I absolutely hate. It is such a huge trigger for the Eating Disorder part of my brain that hasn’t completely gone away yet. No one understands how much pain and hate it causes me towards my body.

I even duct tape them to see if I can make them look smaller. It hurts so much with tape rubbing against my skin and all it offers is extra support when I workout. It makes it hard to sit up straight. I hate being in pictures because I always look fat and my body shape looks really “thick”, only certain angles look good. If my boobs were a lot smaller, I’d be happy with my body. I remember when I was little, I used to pray to God for big boobs. Then time went on and they grew much more rapidly than my peers. I cant begin to explain how much I hate it. I guess the point of this is to rant and ask if there’s anything at all I can do about the size before I may or may not get a reduction. Please say something. I feel like no one understands this pain. I see people complaining of having small ones or making fun of super padded bras and I’m over here thinking, “seriously! Try living with mine for a day. You should not be complaining.”

Have you been professionally fitted for a bra? They can help you find a bra that should offer you comfort as well as support. It may not do much in reducing the appearance of your breasts, but at least you'll be getting the support you need.

Since it's triggering to your eating disorder, it's probably best that you continue getting help from a therapist and mention that your breast size is a trigger. While you could always look into breast reduction in the future, as you know, there are also risks that you would need to take into consideration.

Ya. I’ve discussed this with my parents and they are understanding of my desire to get a great reduction but of course won’t happen anytime soon. Yes, I’ve been fitted professionally for a bra and I cried when she told me the size. I said it wasn’t her fault but she felt so bad. Thank you for the support.
