In a recent online post, a 19-year-old woman reached out for advice after her boyfriend’s comment about his ex-girlfriend’s larger chest left her feeling insecure about her own. The post provides a glimpse into the emotional turmoil the woman is experiencing during her winter break at her boyfriend’s flat.
The woman shared that she had a particularly difficult day due to the end of her period, a time when she tends to feel insecure about her chest size. She opened up to her 20-year-old boyfriend, expressing her desire for a larger size. Initially, he attempted to comfort her by highlighting that many models have smaller chests, boosting her confidence momentarily.
Compared Hers To His Ex-Girlfriend
However, the situation took an unexpected turn when the boyfriend mentioned that his ex-girlfriend had a larger chest than hers. He went on to make comments about the potential challenges of larger chests as women age. Despite reassuring her that he loves her and her body, the woman couldn’t shake off the negative impact of the comparison.
The woman admitted to feeling increasingly insecure since the incident, to the extent that she’s finding it difficult to eat. The lingering thought that her boyfriend used to appreciate a larger chest is affecting her self-esteem, especially since her chest has been a source of insecurity since she was 12.
What She Said
I (19f) am currently at my boyfriend’s (20m) flat. I had a very bad day yesterday, because it was the end of my period. I was crying about my chest, because I always wanted a bigger size. I am A cup, going to a B when I’m before and on my period. He tried to made me feel better and said that no models have big chests, since they are all skinny.
It worked, but then he said that his ex had bigger chests than mine, and the bigger one are floppy when women are getting older. He reassured me that he loves me and my body so much, but I keep feeling bad since yesterday. I barely can eat anything.
All I can think of is that he used to enjoy, touch and admire bigger chest and now he ended up with mine, that are barely non-existence. It’s my worst part of my body since I was 12. What should I do? How to stop that thinking?
