A natural breast is more like a raw or very softly boiled egg. Depending on the size of your natural breasts, or your age, or how many children youâ€™ve had, natural breasts can shift positions depending on where you move, and can even go under your arm or flat like a pancake. Mine sit up cute when Iâ€™m standing and fall flat like a raw egg when Iâ€™m on my back. There are brassieres that transform my low boobs into round, fake-looking bazongas. These brassieres are said to â€œ magically ‘transform’ you”, but, truth be told they’re more like torture devices, pulling your flesh into places it never intended to go.
I have, on numerous occasions, been confronted by other peopleâ€™s discomfort with my breasts (and not just online). I had a horrid audition experience where the casting director actually made someone in her office take off their own push-up bra for me to wear because she did not like where my breasts were sitting. Apparently, the whereabouts of my breasts were key to my acting skills!
Iâ€™ve had long conversations with my manager about my breasts or, as she calls them, â€œthe girls.â€ Iâ€™ve had to defend their placement, as she suggested I should wear a â€œbetter bra,â€ alluding to the fact that others have made comments about my breasts to her. These experiences gave me pause: I felt hurt, reduced to an object, a pair of tits â€” tits that were, apparently, un-cast-able.
Of course, Iâ€™m an actress and my body is my instrument, so a certain amount of discussion about my body is expected. This is the business I have chosen. But, I feel that some things are just not meant for other peopleâ€™s comments. I mean, whether your breasts were positioned by God, Mother Nature or our gene pool,short of getting a “boob-job” itâ€™s something you just canâ€™t control
I remember in grade school I made a comment about my teacher wearing the same clothes two days in a row. My mom explained that there are just certain things we might notice about other people that donâ€™t need to be said out loud. Most of us learn early on that it is not kind to make fun of difference and that if we donâ€™t have anything nice to say, itâ€™s best to say nothing. As the saying goes, â€œopinions are like assholes: we all have them.â€
