There's just no way to not be depressed


Sweet, wonderful friend at church brings me a bag of clothing for the girls.

"It's some bras that my daughter wore right as she was barely out of training bras. So, I know they're not quite there yet, but if you want, you can hang onto them."

Of course! It is so thoughtful when people bring us things the kids can use.

So, today I pulled them out to put them in the "clothes to grow into" tubs.

And these "barely out of training bras" ...

were my size.

Ahhh yes. Well, um dear let's just get you over to the juniors lingerie department. I think your "girls" may still need a little shall we say... training?

Hey, maybe the pill will balloon you back up in the boob zone!! There's nothing like excess hormones. I'm always running on a full tank of those. Not the good kind, sadly, just the crazy ones.

Corey said...

ah, boobs. The girls that don't have 'em, want 'em. And the girls that have 'em, would rather not.

And the boys? They will take 'em any way they can get 'em.

This story hit a little too close to home, and therefore a little "flat." Sigh.

Aside from the circumference of my ribcage, I think I am about the same size I was in junior high...I may never fill out my bra (or a sweater for that matter), but my being flat makes running a whole lot easier, no bouncing at all. I say we take pride in our flatness. Anyone can have big breasts (implants), but not everyone can be flat!

I hear ya.

I've decided to look on the bright side though; I can buy a brand new bra for 4 bucks.

But I hate fitted tops, they always look a little, er, empty.

And then there are those of us who never fit into the training bras...but went straight to all out busty-ness. It's kind of sad when you outgrow your mom at 10.

One of my only fears about getting pregnant is that my boobs will get un-proportionately HUGE!

Lisa said...

Those silly training bras fit me till I was 18. How I wish it were still so.

On your comment. Yep, so you nailed it. Will you please remind me of that statement come June?????

Kristen said...

Well that's too bad for you. Luckly my breasts would never fit into a training bra. I need an extra bit of stretchy fabric to hang straight down that I can roll them in to, since my boobs are deflated nearly to my belly button. Can't wait to see how they look after breastfeeding again!! Right now they are just regular deflated balloons. Soon they will be like those ones the balloon twisters use to make animals out of.

Rachel said...

Yeah...I'm so sorry, but I cannot relate to this one. My boobs just...exploded, and not in a good way. I have been telling my husband that I want a reduction!!!

And now that I am pregnant - I had no idea that they would do this in the FIRST trimester. Third, yes. FIRST?!? Holy cow. It's obscene.

I like the comment - the girls that don't have em want em and the girls that have em...no, no, no, not like that.

Candis said...

Oh, please. I'd give my right pinkie to have enough on top to keep the seatbelt strap from sliding all over the place. I can't tell you how much cash I've lost trying to store it in my bra like my more well-endowed pals. In fact, the outline of the dollar bill shows up through my shirt. Sigh.

Lawree said...

Aw buck up little buckaroo. There's a million ways not to be depressed over that. Think of all the things you can do that us boob-girls can't. Like wear the much coveted spaghetti strap sun dress. (My dream of all dreams.) Or even more the strapless dress --without squeezing your boobs up and out so that it looks like you have a baby butt crack popping out the top. You can stand in crowded elevators without inadvertently massaging a stranger's back with your nips. You can wear T-shirts that actually fit the rest of you without coming off like a Hooters waitress. And you can run. Let's say you and I are lost in the woods when a psycho killer pops out with a chain saw. Which one of us is going to get away??
It will inspire your husband to stay fit lest he end up with bigger boobs that you. My boyfriend would have a lot of leeway. Shall I go on...?

MadHatter said...

It is my quandry at least every 3 or so years when I treat myself to a new bra--should I get the tiny bra or just a good pimple cream to clear the whole thing up? ;)

Accidental Mommy said...

Hmmm... I was pondering Lawree's question about who would get away and I actually think that one is up in the air. I think it depends on the killer. If they are looking for a fight they will go after the smaller chested girl because the bigger chested girl will be on the ground knocked out by her own boobs from trying to run.

nice.

just remember, many hot models are boobless.

and your readers are hilarious!

Melissa said...

Had my best laugh in days over these comments! Thanks ladies!!

Jennifer said...

Oh, I can relate. I actually had some boobs when I was pregnant and then when I quite breastfeeding, away they went. That was one of the saddest days of my life! It was nice to have at least a little cleavage for a while!!!

BooBs said...

Aw honey, I still fit bin those trainers, not even the "barely out of trainers". But I love my girls and proudly show off my "not quite cleavage" every change I get. Guess that's how I got my nickname...

Brenda said...

Aww well, like me, rest assured that you will never reach the age where they will be hanging in your lap, you can run comfortably and I can't think of anything else but there must be something.

Sara said...

oh honey....
