Does Anybody Regret It?
Byon 20 Apr 2011
Im considering a breast augmentation. I chose to write this here, because I have a 2 year old boy. After I finished nursing my son, my already incredibly tiny (not even A cup) bust dwindled to barely there at all. (Now THAT is something I wish somebody had told me. I thought my lovely enlarged breasts were here to stay!) I have always suffered from huge difficulties in finding bras, swim-suits, dresses and shirts that not only fit, but wont gap and show my nonexistent bust (read: nipples). I am not exaggerating, it truly is difficult, frustrating and depressing. Bras that fit around my torso have too large a cup. Cups that fit do not have straps that fit around my torso. I cant wear shirts or dresses unless the have a very high neck, which is unfashionable and (usually) uncomfortable.
My 2 concerns are:
-The DEBUT. I work in a school district with some very unpleasant and judgmental people, and have real anxiety about the whole "what people will think" thing. I know I cant live my life based on what other people think, but I do have to work with them. How long do the "LOOKS" last?
-Cost. I follow a lot of deal blogs, coupon almost fanatically, and generally think of myself as frugal. I want to get us OUT of debt, not further into debt. The cost on this optional surgery is a hard thing to swallow.
Finally, I guess what I really want to know, is are there MOM'S who had this surgery done and wished they hadn't? Are there moms who had this done and only regret they hadn't done it sooner? Thank you Ladies!
