Before I start this post, I want to make one thing clear. At Gurl, we’re all about promoting self love, but we’re also realists: you’re not going to wake up every morning feeling amazing about the way you look. That’s just human nature! But we do hope to encourage you guys to be a little less hard on yourselves, especially for things that are beyond your control. For example, boobs.
Whether you hate them or don’t mind them, you’re basically stuck with ’em unless you shell out a few thousand dollars to change ’em, so you might as well accept your rack for what it is. With that said, it’s easier said than done. I’m saying all of this as somebody who has big boobs and feels more comfortable slouching my shoulders in a bad attempt to make my boobs less prominent than to stand up straight with them sticking out proudly. Aside from size, I’ve dealt with insecurity about my nipples, boob sagging, etc, but after a while I got tired of fretting and realized that I wasted so much energy feeling bummed out about something that virtually nobody else notices or gives a damn about. Admit it, you have your boob related woes too, don’t you? Try to make them less of a concern by checking out this list of eight boob things you thought were weird, but are actually totally normal. It’s time to stop freaking out and make piece with your titties.
Your Boobs Are Sagging, But You're Not Even Old YetSome people have naturally perky boobs. Plenty of us...don't. I'm admittedly in the don't category and whenever I look at myself in the mirror while I'm topless, I envision how low my boobs will hang when I'm an old lady. But, hell, unless you go under the knife, your saggy titties are here to stay. Instead of angsting, look at your boob sag as elegant AF. Also, remember that most people have saggy boobs, you're totally normal and still look cute. TheFrisky.com
You Have Big NipplesConfession: I have big nipples! I was self-conscious about them for the longest time until I exposed myself to nude photography and realized that...nipples are weird in general and come in all kinds of funky shapes and sizes and colors. Your big nips are nothing to be ashamed of and they don't make your boobs look weird either. Also, any S.O. who actually cares about your nipple size is a weirdo who needs to be kicked to the curb.

You Have Hairy NipplesThis isn't really discussed so much in health class when you're learning about puberty, but I'm hear to tell you this: Stop fretting about those little hairs growing around your nipples. They're normal, everybody has them. You can pluck them with tweezers if they're really getting on your nerves, but for the most part? Don't even worry about it. Everybody has some hair on their titties, they're just not announcing it.Amazon.com
Your Boobs Are SUPER SmallI know, there's a lot of pressure to have a sizable rack, one that you can proudly grab with a healthy amount of spillover. But bigger boobs just aren't in everybody's future...and that's really okay. I know, it might not seem like it now, but it really isn't the end of the world. In fact, there are some advantages of having small boobs! You don't have to worry so much about finding a blouse or bikini top that fits, which, as a girl with big boobs, I can tell you is a huge plus. And if it makes you feel any better, the main person who is worried about your tiny boobs are you; most people DGAF. Be a proud member of the itty bitty titty committee and thrive. Mean Girls
Your Boobs Are SUPER BigHere's a photo of yours truly! I'm starting to feel a little more confident about my big boobs, but it's a work in progress. I once admitted to my BF that I'm embarrassed to stand up straight because my boobs stick out so much. He literally looked at me like I was nuts...which got me thinking that maybe, just maybe, I'm the only one who is thinking too hard about this. Sure, finding tops that fit can be a burden, but the best way to embrace your big boobs is to rock a bra that fits and remember that some people would kill for your rack. Instagram
Guys Only Like Certain Kinds Of BoobsIf you're a cis-gender straight girl who is worried about what straight guys think of your boobs...don't. Seriously, don't. Sure, there will be those guys who are super vain about boobs and only like big ones or small ones. But there are a lot more out there who literally DGAF. Boobs are boobs and they are 100 percent here for them. They don't know the difference between a B-cup and a baked potato! Mad Men
Unattractive Or Distracting Cleavage Is InevitableWhether you're worried about a wardrobe malfunction or how your saggy boobs look in a low cut dress, please cop some fashion tape and chill out! It's double sided tape that adheres to your boobs and your clothing so that everything stays in place nicely. Your boobs will release a serious sigh of relief. Amazon.com
They're Not GrowingEveryone grows at a different speed, and getting caught up about being an A-cup while your BFF blossomed to a full C-cup is a waste of time. Nothing you can do--chest exercise, diet change, etc--is going to be stronger than your DNA, and your boobs are going to grow the way they're going to grow. Hell, a lot of people's boobs don't even start growing all that much until college. You might be in for a surprise. Grease
