This Cancer Season rules the breasts/chest. It’s a great time to celebrate your breasts, boobies, and chest in general.
We all have different relationships with our breasts. Some of you might not want breasts and want gender affirmation surgery.
Some of you might look at your breasts purely as the part of your body that fed your children.
Some of you might have had lumps or been diagnosed with breast cancer or are breast cancer survivors. You might have had a (double) mastectomy.
Some of you might have hangups about whether your breasts are too big, too small, too uneven. Whether your nipples are the right size, color, long, inverted. Whether they’re perky or if they slide when you lay down.
Some of you might love wearing bras, some of you might hate it. Some of you might tape your breasts down.
This is simply an opportunity to check in with this part of our body and embrace it for what it is. Even if you plan on getting gender affirmation surgery, how can you speak kindly to this part of you now, as you are?
Even if you’ve been told, taught, and shown by the media, society, parents, past partners, friends, porn, and more that only one type of breasts are ideal or attractive, how can you celebrate your breasts this week?
Maybe that looks like…
- Writing your breasts a letter
- Taking a sexy photoshoot naked or in a bra or showing off cleavage (you don’t need to post it online for it to be effective, but we’d love to see if you want to share!)
- Buying yourself a new bra or bralette
- Spending naked time with your breasts
- Writing “I love you on your breasts”
- Painting on your breasts/nipples with body paint
- Printing a picture of you breastfeeding
- Making a list of the ways your breasts are awesome/beautiful/helpful
Whatever you do, we’d love to hear about why you love them boobies! And if you’re struggling with doing this with your breasts or don’t have breasts, you’re welcome to change this message to your chest overall!
