All women are unique. So are our body sizes and so are our breasts. Sure thing.
But how do we really feel
I want to start this post by sharing a video. The video is about the book Bare Reality by Laura Dodsworth. It is a truly liberating work and I think everybody should know at least a little bit about her work.
Laura spent two years photographing and interviewing 100 women about the breasts, bodies, and lives.
In her book Bare Reality, 100 women bravely share un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside honest, courageous, powerful and humorous stories about their breasts and their lives.
Bare Reality donates £1.00 from every book sold to Breast Cancer UK, a charity which is dedicated to the primary prevention of breast cancer by reducing public exposure to the carcinogenic and hazardous chemicals linked to the disease. You can check out her book on Amazon »
Don’t let any size put you down
Years ago my small boobs made me feel unique all right. But this was not a positive feeling.
I felt alone.
It seemed to me that every woman around me had bigger boobs.
It was a time the internet wasn’t alive yet and cup A was the smallest cup size available. This didn’t help. Little did I know.
These days I’m a petite bra LOVER (knowing my sizes and I learned where to shop). And even though boobs may only seem to get bigger…Us petite women could fill up a whole new planet with the lot of us.

Bare Reality will make you reconsider how you think and feel about your own body and those of the women in your life.
Women’s breasts are unique, just look around you
I compared myself (a lot) to other women. It is what a lot of women tend to do. And it happens only natural in a sec and that’s ok (it’s in our system). But only as long as it doesn’t put yourself down. If you do this to yourself, please stop! Stop judging yourself and others.
A few years ago I started to learn about bra sizing. It was the time I owned an online lingerie store. To check my bra size chart I measured at first four women in my neighborhood. These women all had different body sizes. And different bra sizes, varying from AA to K cup.
Not only I found out that indeed a lot of women wear a wrong bra size. I also saw the beauty of these different women with all their different sizes.
Just picture some women you know. Sure they all will be unique.
The book of Laura Dodsworth gave me a reality check. Just that. I loved it for that.
You might have the smallest boobs around or the biggest. Or maybe had to have surgery to one or two of your breasts (which demands a completely new level of strength from real courageous women).
The constant attention of the media to ‘perfect bodies and boobs’ can easily distract us. But it won’t change the fact that women’s breasts are unique.
You are unique.
