Reduce Your Drooping Boobs:
Have you seen pictures of normal every day breasts? Not very often.
A huge proportion of American women are not happy with their drooping boobs - most of them only because the warped media images make them feel they "should" have big and perky boobs and not drooping with an adolescent-type small nipple and areola. To reassure you that there is no reason to worry, these breast pictures are here to let you see normal breasts - big, small, sagging, asymmetrical, drooping boobs, big areolas or nipples. Truly, female breasts come in all kinds of sizes and shapes.
In fact, having asymmetrical breasts, where one is bigger than the other, is very common and is more normal than most women realize. Also as we all know, size varies a lot. Some women have practically a flat chest, but even they can breastfeed just fine, which is what the breasts are for anyway. Some have more of a bust, and the mere weight of the breasts can cause them backaches from drooping boobs. According to statistics published in the Journal for Sex Research (vol. 24, pp. 177-183), almost 60% of women have the bra cup size of A or B (A-cup 15%, B-44%, C-28%, D-10%). Of course, the size is not constant but varies with pregnancy, breastfeeding, and during the menstrual cycle.
Many young people growing up never see what normal natural drooping breasts look like, and influenced by the media, think they have to stand nearly upright. Women are caused to think that the perfect big breasts are ideal and so many women (about 334,000 in the year 2004 according to American Society of Plastic Surgeons) opt for breast implants to 'correct' their drooping boobs. Most teenage girls worry over their breast development, some even to the point of suicide which is a very sad comment on how American culture is influencing young people.
While young adolescent immature breasts do usually have a perky look, the mature breast (one that has gone through the changes during pregnancy & breastfeeding) often assumes more of a hanging or drooping position. And even if you never become pregnant, your breasts will eventually (usually during peri-menopause or menopause) undergo a process called breast involution, where the glandular and connective tissue is replaced by fat tissue. It actually is easier to have your baby nursing on your lap when your breasts aren't pointing high up in the air in their perkiness. Even for health's sake we should not wish that women's breasts stay firm and perky - studies have shown that denser breasts (those with less fatty tissue) are associated with higher breast cancer risk.
Purpose of breasts
Breasts were designed to feed babies and not to be a kind of 'turn-on' object, special obsession points for men. Judging from the advertisements, one would think that men are supposed to be "all ready" the instant they see a flash of a nipple.
Now, we are not saying that men can't appreciate woman's breasts as feminine and beautiful body parts, or that breasts wouldn't take part in the man woman relationship. We're saying let breasts be like legs and hips and neck and face etc. and all the other body parts - not some inanimate objects that automatically 'click men's brains' to the 'turn on' mode.
It's not men's fault though, if they think so, because they have been culturally conditioned to see it that way. The image created by television, magazines, and the surrounding culture is that breasts are a taboo, always supposed to be hidden. That just feeds the curiosity, sometimes leads to total breast obsession in men, and makes women embarrassed of breastfeeding.
Consider the fact that about 100 years ago women's ankles turned men on. And tiny feet were a fetish for Chinese men. All kinds of parts of female body have been inspiring to men during history and in various cultures. In today's world, breasts have been turned into a similar fetish and taboo in US society and others influenced by it.
If everyone men and women alike were used to going without their top, like humans used to do in tribes and some Africans still do, no one would consider bare breasts as anything special. If even just topless beaches were commonplace, it would make everyone know what these feeding organs look like, and pornographic magazines would lose a lot of their readership And if breastfeeding was very commonplace - ALSO in public - children would naturally learn what breasts are for and what they look like.
Then, girls' and women's worries about breast size and shape would be drastically reduced. Men wouldn't have to be obsessed by the topic. Breasts could return to their role as feeding organs and as beautiful feminine body parts just like lips, hips, eyes, and legs.
