To any male readers, excuse the girl talk today. We will be on to more androgynous topics soon enough.
C Cups (and beyond) seem to get so much attention these days. So, today we celebrate the A and B Cups. To all you blessed C+ Cups out there, please don’t take offense. You have plenty of perks to make even the most confident A/B Cups envious.
Before I go much further, I must share my brief boob chronicle. These gals have been a variety of sizes since puberty. I have experienced everything from a small B, a perky C (early twenties), and an enormous D (postpartum). I write this as a smallish B Cup who is grateful to have some, but not much. Each size has it’s pluses and minuses. But, we are focusing on the A/B Cuppers today, so let’s get on with it!
A/B Cup Benefits:
- Bounce-free! As an active person, I really appreciate not being restricted by my boobs. For example, last week I set out for the beach with my kids in the BOB (baby jogger). Since we were going to stay at the beach for a few hours, I wore my bikini (triangle top) under my running shorts and tank. I ran four miles in a triangle top bikini. Support is important and running in a triangle top bikini on a regular basis is not a good idea… but it sure was nice to be able to pull it off that once.
- Neckline Freedom! A/B Cups can wear just about any neckline without putting out a “look at what I have” vibe. I feel for those gals with fuller chests whose wardrobe is constrained by their boobs.
- Sweat-free! Speaking from experience, cleavage and under-boob sweat is just about the worst. Come on, you know what I am talking about. Minimal cleavage + smallish cup size = negligible boob sweat. Okay, enough of that mental picture.
- Underwire-Free! This is just about my favorite perk of all. Because A/B Cups don’t need much support, we can wear comfy bralettes that C+ Cups only dream of. These styles are adorable and can be totally sexy given the right material/color/confidence. For example, this lace bralette by PINK Victoria’s Secret is cute and practical for an A/B Cup’s daily wear.
Well, that about sums it up. I am so thankful for the list (albeit short) of perks; my barely B Cup runneth over!
As with the rest of our shape and body, we are who we are and have what we have. There is only so much we can do about it. To any bumming small busted sisters, remember there is a silver lining to just about everything, including a small rack.
