As everything on my body has gone south by age and weight not only does my boobs sit lower but my stomach and underbust as well.
If I lay down flat on my back or bend over everything goes back in place. Then I can see my boobs being very high on chest rather than the low on chest look I get while standing up.
This probably explains why I crave the tighter bands so much.
The tighter bands with more stable wires and wings kind of makes me achieve this look standing up.
This also explains why I have thought I cannot wear a longline, because of the roll pressing my underwires from underneath.
As I've been wearing too small bras for 20 years I also have cropped my boobs off terribly. I wanted my boobs front and center. I pushed them front and center. They are not front and center. They never ever was meant to be front and center. Ever.
This is why I always gets sad when I see young girls complaining of their boobs going "east and west". I'ts a perfect natural look. If your boobs are to the sides, don't push them front and center as you will ruin the shape of your boobs to achieve a look you don't have.
I always wanted the shape of an hourglass. I've totally accepted that as impossible five or ten years ago. I was a square shape.
I just never realized not allowing my boobs to be the way they were was what made me look like a square.
At the age of 39 I've seen a new body taking form and yup she does have curves. Not hourglassy curves but still, curves. I wish someone would've told that insecure young girl this. Then maybe she would've stopped dieting and stopped wearing those goddamn too small pushups.
I do not mind being fat. I do mind however looking shapeless when I'm not.
