Breast Augmentation

Are You a Large-Breasted Woman in a Small-Breasted Woman’s Body? Why Some Women Get Breast Implants

Are you thinking about breast implants?  There are many reasons why women go in for breast implants, some of them medical and others purely aesthetic.  We all want to love our bodies the way we are but sometimes, our inner vision and our outer appearance don’t exactly match.  This is why some women get breast implants.

Sometimes, we want to fit into our clothes better.  At other times, we just want to feel better about ourselves.  And sometimes, we want to appear more attractive to the opposite sex.  These are all good reasons to get breast implants.

DoYou Want to Get Breast Implants?

The most important thing you should ask yourself before going in for this procedure is: Do I want breast implants?  Do you really think that you would feel better if you had breast implants or are you just doing it to please someone else?  It’s a good idea to go in for this procedure if you really feel that it’s best for you and not because someone else recommends it.

How Big Do You Want to Go?

The second question you might want to ask yourself is how big you want to go.  Do you really feel that you need to get breasts as big as those of porn stars?  Are you not going to be happy unless you have  double Ds?  Or do you just need to go up by a size or two?

You should also take the general proportions of your body into consideration before you get implants.  If you’re generally a very slim person, then you might not want to get breasts which are very big or else you’ll look too top-heavy.  If you have a sizable derriere, you can probably get away with very large-sized breasts.

Wardrobe Changes After Getting Breast Implants

Remember that once you get implants, you’ll have to change your wardrobe and the way you dress.  Some small-breasted women can get away with going braless but this won’t be an option with anything larger than a B cup.

Plus, when you have bigger breasts, you have to get well-tailored clothes to make sure that you are showing just the right amount of cleavage.  Many ready-made clothes are geared towards slimmer women these days, just because that’s the way the fashion industry works.  So you might find many dresses ride up a bit higher when you have larger breasts.  You might need to stop going to stores geared towards younger women, like Forever 21 or Express and go to stores geared towards older women like Ann Taylor or stores which stock more clothes for curvy women like Bebe.

If you really want to get breast implants, none of these is going to be a deterrent for you.  And if you’ve always felt like a large-breasted woman in a small-breasted woman’s body, you should definitely go for breast implants.  Just keep in mind all the lifestyle changes you might need to make when you do this.

Breast Implants: Why?

According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation procedures are the top cosmetic surgeries in the world. Not surprisingly, America accounted for 15% of all breast-related procedures in 2013. Speculative opinions may lead you to believe that women who seek breast augmentation are simply seeking more “attention,” but that’s certainly not the lone motivational factor. While the procedures seems to continue to carry a sense of stigma, there are many reasons why some women get breast implants.

For example, after pregnancy (due to weight loss and breast feeding) breast tissues can deplete greatly. Whether the breasts just lack the perkiness they once had or they’ve taken on entirely new shapes, implants can give a little lift and contour to “the girls” that have served well, but look worse for wear. Implants can provide the same enhancements for women whose breasts became smaller after extreme weight loss, or for those who’ve always had one breast larger or shaped differently than the other.

Most breast augmentation surgeries are performed as subtle changes, like a B to a C cup. Some, however, can be more metamorphic. Diseases such as cancer can be treacherous for breasts, but the good news is that mastectomies can help save lives. The bad news? Losing a breast is literally losing a part of yourself, an aspect of your identity. Luckily, in some cases, breast implants can virtually reverse the damage done by aggressive diseases and disorders.

It’s safe to say: Women simply want to feel better about themselves. After all, who doesn’t love to feel beautiful naked? A fuller figure can mean feeling confident when shopping for clothes which require less tailoring or feeling like a goddess in front of the mirror in nothing but lingerie. We all want to take care of (and treat) ourselves in the best ways we know how – no matter if it’s makeup, a new hair style, a manicure, new clothes, a hot bath, a pint of ice cream, or a boob job.

For as many women as there are having breast implant surgeries, there are probably just as many reasons. Motivation can come from anywhere and it will change from person to person. Either way, it should all be about the power of breasts! Women working together can help shed the stigma and help others love their bodies as much as they should: 100%.

Comfort and Support After Breast Augmentation

Choosing the best bra to wear after your breast augmentation can be a difficult task. You want to find comfort and support, as well as style. There are many reconstruction bras out there. Here are few types to get you started.

Surgical Compression Bra

Right after surgery, your doctor will give you recommendations on what type of bra is best to wear. One of the more common suggestions is the surgical compression bra. It is form fitting with molded cups for maximum support, hook-and-eye closures on the front and back and velcro straps for ease of adjustment. The additional velcro compression band aids in support and stabilization while your breasts are in the healing process. This bras also helps with proper circulation and decreasing swelling and bruising.

Full Coverage Bra

Another suggestion your doctor may make is for a full coverage bra. This bra has full supporting cups with little to no exposed cleavage. Some extend down several inches below the breasts for added support. They likely have wide velcro shoulder straps and either a velcro or zipper front for ease of removal and adjustment. There are some which come with loops for drainage tubes.

Sports Bra

A type of full coverage bra is the sports bra. They are sturdier than regular bras offering more support and minimal breast movement. The lack of structure is more forgiving for uneven breasts. They come in many styles; seamless, front/back hooks, adjustable shoulder straps, and racerback are only a few differences to look for when choosing a comfortable sports bra.

Coobie Bra

Another seamless wonder is the coobie bra. It boasts a one size fits most: from 32A to 36D and then some. It comes with removable pads which can provide coverage for reconstructed nipples. Adjustable and removable straps are interchangeable with the included clear plastic one. The coobie comes in v-neck, scoop-neck, and bandeau styles all in many colors. It has no hooks or other fasteners, and there is no under-wire. They have good support with their strechability and breast coverage.

Soft Cup Bra

Exactly as the name implies, a soft cup bra is unlike the typical molded cup bra in the although it does have a molded cup, there is no stiff structure. Their support comes from the wireless band below the breasts and the sturdy adjustable straps. Soft cups can be found in many styles including sports bras and full coverage bras.

Having the right bra means nothing if you do not wear the correct size. So don’t forget you will need to get measured after your augmentation. You can have it done professionally or you can do it yourself.
