Stop the Sagging
I really want my boobs to stop sagging and look good. I'm adjusting them all the time when no one is looking. What should I do?
Hey girl, when it comes to your chest, the best way to keep your shape in a good place is underwire. It sounds like it’s about time for you to get your first training bra so your breasts are supported and won’t sag. I’ve got some tips for talking to your mom, finding the right bra and resisting the urge to fix them constantly in the meantime.
Breaking the Habit
First thing first, the most important thing you can do is abstain from your habit and impulse. Keep in mind everyone is different, beauty is subjective and most importantly, no one should be seeing your chest but you right now. The best way to beat your habit? Block it off. A training bra will keep you covered and keep everything in place.
Talking to Mom
Explain to her what’s going on: you want to make sure your breasts are growing properly and would feel more comfortable with a bra. By being frank with her, your mom will get a clear sense of what’s going on. Ask to go bra shopping with her soon so you can pick out your first bra.
When picking out a bra, it’s important to take your measurements. Measure the area above or directly below your breast and the fullest area around your breasts themselves. The difference will tell you your cup size. At the store, ask a sales rep to measure your chest for you to get a professional’s opinion while shopping. Many women don’t wear the right size bra so it’s important you choose one that fits you correctly.
To wrap, realize that while no one’s breasts may be perfect, it’s important to wear a bra to keep them supported. Your obsession, while it will take some time to get over, is a sign: it’s time to get some support to do the job your adjustments would. Talk to your mom and you’ll have it (or them, in this case) covered in no time.
