No Boobs, No Problems

In a culture where curves equal beauty, a small chested girl isn’t necessarily eye catching.

by Hola, Rita. 

back at my adolescent years, I don’t really remember which ‘famous’ person I used to realistically compare myself to. Yes, I was very slim and in shape thanks to dancing, but I lacked something that both women and men tend to love: Boobs.

I’m not ashamed to admit now that I still wear the same bra size that I did when I was 14 – I salute you A cup ladies! – and to be honest, it took me quite some time to feel comfortable with that. When you come from a culture where curves equal beauty and femininity, a small girl with no caderas and small breasts wasn’t necessarily eye catching in my mind. I hated the idea of showing my flat chest and was terrified about being naked in front of anyone, because I genuinely thought no one could possibly like what they saw. I certainly didn’t.

Thankfully, this is not how I think anymore. Not only because other people did like my body, but because I finally understood that my body, just as it was, was beautiful, powerful, and unique. And you know what helped a lot? Seeing other women with small breasts owning their bodies as well.

Once I moved to NYC, and the fashion blogger scene blew up, I started to see other body types everywhere. Yes, most of them they were not Latinas like me, but they were beautiful and comfortable with their bodies. I saw them pull off gorgeous V necks, wear absolutely nothing underneath t-shirts and silk blouses (you go girl!) and exude this confidence and femininity that was not at all tied to their bra size.

It might sound funny, but this new ‘movement’ of sorts fully came to life for me when I attended the Governor’s Ball last year. Say what you want about festival clothing, but looking around and seeing women – including younger ones – feeling confident with their bodies in such a public space was super empowering.

So I have a special message for other members of the cup A club: Boobs are really not that important.
If you don’t know it now, you will learn that boobs can be quite a nuisance when working out, sleeping and even hugging – and we don’t have to worry about any of that. You’ll also learn that actually, you can pull off any clothes you want, especially those on the more revealing side. At the end of the day there is not much that could get ‘out of control’ right?

I’ve got nothing against women with bigger breasts, I would be lying if I say there aren’t times when I wish I had them, but most of the time I don’t. I love my boobs and their ability to be and not be there depending on the bra I wear, and I can only hope that we all continue to see women of all sizes all over the internet and magazines, because as much as we try to preach for body acceptance, representation matters, even when it comes in the humble form of A cup bras.
