In truth, it wasn't the lack of breast tissue per se that bothered me most. Rather, the inability to find a bra I could fill with the little I had, was what was so frustrating. The few times I did find something that fit me I felt great! However most of the time that wasn't the case and bra shopping became more of a source of anxiety & immense annoyance. Anybody who has ever had the issue of putting on a strapless bra only to have your blouse continually concave and nuzzle itself comfortably into the brassiere knows exactly what I'm talking about lol--not the sexiest look.
That was definitely a cause for insecurity at times I must admit. I played around with the idea of one day getting my breasts augmented but didn't plan on considering it seriously until I hit my 30's & had had children. After discussing it quite leisurely with my mom and sister one day however, I decided to go for it. My mom had very willing offered to help me cover the cost if I wanted to get them sooner rather than later, so I took her up on the offer.
As silly as this might sound, what allowed me to make the decision to go for it was because I loved myself as a person inside and out BEFORE undergoing the procedure. This was important for me in my decision making process. I didn't want to make a decision based on me thinking I'd somehow have added value because my chest got a little bigger. A cheesy as that might sound it's true.
With my mom offering to help pay, my loving the person I already was--boobless and all-- and having in the back of my mind a curiosity as to what it would look & feel like to actually have some cleavage in my clothes-- I decided to go for it.
Needless to say I don't have "small chested issues" any more. I went from a barely A cup to a large C/small D. I have a small frame, I'm 5'7'' and I wanted something that would give me the cleavage but still look natural afterwards. My implant size is a 497cc. which was the largest size to fit my frame without looking caricature-esque. They look super natural and have softened up quite a bit. In all honesty actually having breasts was a bit awkward for me at first, but it's been a little over 7 months now and I couldn't be happier for going with the decision to get them.
Have they made me more confident? Mmmm, in one way I suppose you could say yes. I guess what I have now is a different type of upliftment than before. Getting the augmentation actually added to my sense of womanhood that I didn't realize was not all the way present before. I suppose the part of me that had always looked forward to the experience of filling my body out got fulfilled when I got the work done and I've got to say, it feels pretty dang good :).
