Kind of an "off-the-wall" question this time...


Ladies, if you felt your breasts were too

I'd rather find a bra that fits comfortably.

Having not been in the situation of feeling that my breasts were too *small*, it's not a decision that I've really thought about much, so I don't know if I can really say.

Nope. My self esteem, self identity is not based on the size of my breasts. Men's identity isn't based solely on the size of their penises, why should woman base their sense of self and worthiness on their breast sizes?

IMO, it's a really sick society that bases a person's worth just on their bodies and appearance. Very poor values. If someone doesn't have anything else positive going on in their lives, bigger breasts or a bigger penis, aren't going to make anyone sublimely magically happy or give them a successful life or even relationship, for that matter, KWIM? :o(

I wouldn't rule out surgery if there is disfigurement from birth or an accident, of course. Or there is a health, physical pain, condition (like some women that have horrible back issues, when *too* well endowed, and need a reduction). But if it's "just for looks." Maybe deeper thought on one's self value and other values might be called for. We're not Barbies, after all. We're real people with real lives. And we are much more than just the size of our breasts, after all. Well, I certainly hope we are! ;))

No surgery for these puppies, either! ;)

In getting a little personal here (we're all women, right?), I've never had large breasts and there is no way that I would ever have them enlarged.

I think it is a "personal" decision but for me the answer would be no...
My self-esteem is not based on the size of my breasts and it's a turn-off for me personally whenever a guy seems "fixated" and I have been known to say isn't it a little rude to be staring, how would feel you if I stared at your "fill in the blanks"?
It's ONLY a very small part of us and definitely has nothing to do with who we are.
If I thought it would make me feel better about myself I might consider it...but I am happy with what I've got. :)
