Love the skin you're in.

It was Saturday afternoon at a packed mall and I had one goal. I need boobs. I plan on auditioning for  the Celtics dancers in about a month and while I can eat well and work my butt off at the gym, I'm not entirely sure how to go about the whole chest thing. One thing I am sure of- I need to fake it until I make it. Literally. So off I go, into Victoria's Secret to seek out the least judgmental looking sales associate. 

I approached a friendly looking, maybe a little too bubbly blonde woman. Took a deep breath and said, in just one breath, "I am auditioning for the Celtics in about month and I am completely flat like a toddler but I will never make it if I have a flat chest so I need help making it appear like I have boobs." Cue the flushed face and desperate attempt to catch up on the breath I had just lost. Blondie giggled and said "Hun, you need a bombshell. They give EVERYONE cleavage." She doesn't get it. I literally resemble a toddler. Handing me a 32A (yup..) bombshell AND a padded sports bra she directed me to the fitting room and instructed that I come out to show her after I put them both on. I did as I was told and just stood there for a moment. This bitch is expecting me to walk out of the fitting room a whole new woman and I still don't have cleavage. I opened the door and received an "oh...." Awesome. "You have great abs." 

After figuring out that the bombshell, padded sports bra and cutlets will do the trick I paid for all my new treats and left Victorias Secret feeling so embarrassed. I mean the woman was friendly and supportive and I had a friend with me to help. But there is a standard of beauty, especially in that store and I clearly was not fitting the bill. I am almost 21 years old and I can't fill out an A cup.. is this a sick joke. 

A few days later I am almost okay with things again. I don't have boobs and that is due to my super low body fat percentage which I work hard for in the gym and eating well. Because I don't have boobs I don't have to wear a bra to class, can buy cute bathing suits, don't have to worry about back pain and can leap and turn with nothing weighing me down. While I am still jealous of everyone with even a little cleavage I'm not going to be unhappy with myself. This is what I have and I am thankful for that. 

Love the skin you're in ladies. You are perfect just the way you are. If you're unhappy with something- that's why they make bombshells, cutlets and padded sports bras.
