10 Summer Clothing Struggles You'll Never Understand If You Have Big Boobs
LOL, where are my boobs? 🙈
Being flat-chested has its perks: We can pull off several outfits ladies with big boobs can't. We don't have to deal with boob sweat in the summer or back pain when we get older. Small boobs are great!
However, when summer rolls around, we're often reminded of our flat-chested status. Suddenly, we feel like a middle school girl all over again when we can't fill out our bikinis or are constantly pulling up our strapless sundresses. It's easy for us to get self-conscious since society has sort of made it clear that big boobs are better. Here are ten struggles all of us flat-chested ladies face during warm-weather season.
1. Finding a swimsuit that doesn't make you look like a prepubescent boy
Forget classic triangle bikinis—there's no way in hell you're filling those out. You tend to stick to suits that either have a lot of padding for some extra pushup—or ones with a high neck to cover that area completely. Luckily, one-piece swimsuits are in, so you have plenty of options that'll still make you look sexy for beach season.
2. Buying bikini tops and bottoms separately—especially if you have a bigger butt or hips—can be a huge hassle
Sometimes you can't find the matching bottom to the perfect top you found and it's SO DISAPPOINTING. It's also difficult to order swimsuits online, and you miss out on any sales or deals where the whole swimsuit comes together.
3. Knowing you will never, ever look like this
Dream of being a beach goddess = forever dead.
4. Worrying that when you go braless, it just looks like there's nothing there
Yes, we can pull off the braless look better than anyone, but you find yourself feeling self-conscious about it because you don't want to look like nothing's there. Sure, you may not need to wear a bra with a crop top, but it gives you shape that otherwise might not be there.
5. Getting a little too excited when you find that one dress that gives you even an ounce of cleavage
You have that one dress or shirt that you save for special occasions because for whatever reason, it makes your boobs look PHENOMENAL. You'll embrace even the tiniest bit of cleavage and feel like a whole new woman doing so.
6. Spending all your time and money on contouring tricks, so it looks like you have cleavage when you wear tank tops
When Kylie Jenner revealed her cleavage secrets on her website, you tried her tricks out yourself. Since padded bras don't typically do much, you turned to makeup to contour your cleavage to make it look like you have at least a little something there.
7. Taking the risk of putting it all (or lack thereof) out there in a strapless dress
GRAVITY IS NOT OUR FRIEND. We always end up pulling up strapless sundresses, tube tops, etc. because they're constantly falling down. Unfortunately, summer is the best time to embrace the strapless look, but sadly, it's not the best outfit choice for you.
8. Experiencing that weird space from push-up bras when you wear a tank top
Push-up bras are supposed to work miracles and they might when you're more covered up—but in the summertime when you're only wearing tank tops, that gap between your boob and your push-up bra is more apparent than ever. It's basically a free advertisement to everyone that you are wearing a push-up bra. Sorry, not sorry?
9. Being jealous of your friends who can show off their cleavage in swimsuits, crop tops, etc.
Your friends may tell you you're lucky not to have big boobs, but you know they're probably just saying that to make you feel better. It's not fair that they can pull off crop tops without a bra and not look completely flat. It's worse when they can wear the bikini top you've had your eye on for months because you know you'll never have the cleavage to fill it out.
10. Accepting that you won't have cleavage in a low-cut dress
It takes a lot of guts to wear plunging necklines or anything low-cut, but if you have the confidence, it can actually look really hot. Plus, you don't have to worry about having some embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
