Let's talk about BOOBS. Good Fashion VS. Boobs. Are they sometimes mutually exclusive or can we always have both?

I grew up cursing my A cups (which eventually developed into B cups) and scheming about how I'd ask my mum for a boob job for my 16th birthday. My bra collection was limited exclusively to the most severe of push-up bras. I wanted ALL the help I could get. Two years later, I made a complete U-turn. If I could drop down a cup size to become an A cup, I would. I replaced all my wonder bras with barely-there flimsy pieces of cotton with no padding whatsoever and oftentimes, not even wearing a bra at all. I feel that you can get away with wearing more stylish clothing without boobs. My mum always used to tell me: The grass is not always greener on the other side. You just have to water your own grass. So maybe this is just me watering my own grass?

It's been a long time since I heard someone say that a dress didn't look good on a girl because she didn't have the boobs to fill it in. I used to hear this all the time before. What has changed- the way that stylish clothes are made or my perception of the way that clothes should fit?

With the arrival of recent trends (low cut tops, crop tops, bra tops, fully unbuttoned shirts, silk camisoles), more revealing silhouettes are being embraced but they don't look vulgar. However, if I was wearing this leather bra with D cups, the dynamics of the outfit would change completely.

That being said, I have a friend who regards her G cups as her best asset. She protects them like she would her new-born twins. So, what do you say. Are you happy with your A cups or G cups as the case may be or is the grass greener on the other side? Plus, what do you think about the fit of clothes in relation to the size of boobs?

  3. S says:

    I’d trade my DDs for a B ANYDAY. Or maybe a C because I’m really tall.

    1. Fisayo Longe says:

      Haha! C and D, no big diffy! Work your D’s hunnay!

    You are fierce.. I’m content with my D cup but a B wouldn’t have been bad..xx

    1. Fisayo Longe says:

      The grass is greener on your side and that’s perfect. Thank you!

  5. Ana says:

    I always say big boobs can never go well with fashion, imagine runway models with big boobs, how annoying and unpleasant will that be? Lool! There is this sophisticated look that comes with small boobs

    1. Fisayo Longe says:

      I agree but I think big boobs will have their moment too! Think Kate Upton, Kim Kardashian…hot hot hot!

  6. Inez says:

    Your skirt is gorgeous. I think A cup ladies can get away with wearing very revealing clothes and just like Ana said there is some sort of sophisticated effect A cups have on clothes.

    1. Fisayo Longe says:

      Thank you!

      Thank you!

    I remember getting my boobs measured for the first time when I was in high school. I cried and ran out of the mall when I found out I was double Ds!I’ve always hated being overly sexual-looking having got attention a lot for my rear end already, so learning of my boob size just added that pressure of a sexual symbol. I have been wanting to get my breast reduced but my mom thinks my reason “It’s not fashionable” isn’t good enough. She says unless it’s harming me ( back pain) I should leave what God created me with – not to mention I should wait to meet my future husband and run it by him too (lol) My African mother!. I love the ensemble on you and yes am envious of your B cups, my breasts would’ve made this outfit look provocative to the max! You make it look high-fashion and chic!

    1. Fisayo Longe says:

      Thank you! I think we all learn at some point to work we’ve what we got. So this was me accepting! I get your mum, it sounds like a bit of a scary procedure especially when you’re already beautiful!

    Fis…. i totally agree with finding confidence in what you have but what do you do when you have a body as mine! tall(not so tall 5.8), DDcup, broad shoulders, slim legs, flat arse. plus a very prettyn flawless face( my small in all these i try to find my confidence though it took me a long while because i had to first understand my body and finding what fits me.

    1. Fisayo Longe says:

      5.8 is beautifully tall! And from what you describe especially with the pretty face, I don’t see what you’d be insecure about. You sound gorgeous! And I’m so happy for you that you found your confidence. x
