The Boob Debate
When I first saw people commenting on my photos with the words, “goals” and “she has the perfect shape” I was flabbergasted. I definitely do not feel like I have the perfect shape. I feel that my legs are too short, my thighs are too soft, my boobs are too small, my arms are too long, my shoulders are too broad and that my abs aren’t as defined as I’d like them to be!
Some days I think my body looks fine, but when I’m in a bikini I pick my body apart and don’t feel like I look that good. I know, I know, I’m a fan of posting bikini selfies (shoot me), but it’s pretty easy to look decent in a bikini selfie. You can push your boobs together, jut your hips out, suck your stomach in and filters go a long way! However, I do have pretty good self confidence, but I still have days I look in the mirror and feel shitty. Since I have started working out I do feel more confident and proud of my body. But I still have crap days.
I also find it difficult as my Instagram account is all about self love, but I have trouble doing just that. One thing that’s been on my mind for ages is getting a boob job.
I would love to have bigger boobs, it’s one thing that always annoyed me about my body. It's also something that no amount of hours in the gym is going to fix. I look at all the fitness girls on Instagram, and no joke, 95% of them have had boobs jobs.
When you have low body fat, you’re going to have no boobs. Unless you’re a freak anomaly like Emily Ratajkowski and then I hate you.
But then I feel like a massive hypocrite. I think, "ohh my god I could never get a boob job because of the people that follow me". I would feel like I let people down and maybe I’d lose all my followers and shouldn’t I just love the body I have? I know most people would be happy to have my body.
For me, I don’t have a problem when people have plastic surgery to enhance their bodies. Their body, their choice. It’s also their choice if they choose to be open about it, but this is the bit that makes me feel uncomfortable. I’d feel deceptive if I posted pictures of myself (post boob job) and I had comments like, “why don’t my boobs look like that?” and “how did she keep her boobs and mine have disappeared?”. I don't want to give women unrealistic expectations for their body and make them feel bad that their boobs disappeared and mine look amazing! However, I do understand that some women want to keep their private life private and they're not ashamed of their surgery or trying to hide it. This is just how I personally feel.
Look at Kylie Jenner. She was so scared of the public backlash she would receive when admitting to having her lips done that she denied it, and then thousands of women starting participating in the #KylieJennerChallenge suctioning shot glasses to their lips to give the appearance of fuller lips. Now if Kylie had been honest and just said, “yeah I had fillers”, wouldn’t that have been better? In hindsight it sure would have been the best way to explain her fuller lips, but who can blame her for lying? There is such a negative, hateful reaction when people get plastic surgery that most people just lie about it. I think lying just makes it worse as it gives women unrealistic hopes for their bodies. I love finding out when a celebrity has had work done, it’s like, “ohh great, they don’t naturally look like that”.
I still haven’t decided if I’m going to get my boobs done, but if I do, you’ll be the first to know!
