I wore padded bras throughout high school trying to convince others and MYSELF that my breasts were bigger than they actually are. In my college years I have finally come to realize (not without the occasional but passing moment of dissatisfaction) that there is no “better” size of breast, small or large, and that allowing media and society and corporations govern our minds concerning gland-lumps on our chests (or any aspect of body image) is a huge gorram waste of time. It is a daily struggle against the machine, but I say that struggle is well worth my time.
