Reusable pads

Idk what the point is here BUT I use reusable pads and have no issues with it. Super comfy and better for environment

Back when I had monthly periods I would just use a menstural cup, honestly the easiest and cleanest zero waste option

Anonymous 10222

this. i struggled with the learning curve so badly though but it's all good now. i think i would probably use period underwear or a cloth pad for the heavy days

Anonymous 10235

I used washable pads for a few months and really liked them, but it freaked out my boyfriend that I would wash them in the laundry machine, so I stopped using them.

why should it? it's perfectly clean

Hi. Miner with dark skin here.

In high school I had terrible acne, yet to this day in my twenties I'm dealing with the horrible hyper-pigmented acne scars from my past acne.
Does anyone have advice on how to get rid of acne scars? Specifically ones with hyper-pigmentation?

Anonymous 10247

i used tea tree oil a few times in highschool and it got rid of my acne scars. make sure it's diluted and do a patch test (on the inisde if your elbow) before you use it because it's an essential oil and can cause burns

Pink Silk Scarf ro…

ugh i hate sewing. i have a machine but i literally cant sew in a straight line no matter how hard i try. im a decent hand sewer. i usually only sew if something ripped and needs fixing or if im sewing pieces of a sweater together for knitting.
id really like to get back into it, any tips?

Use a smaller needle and a shorter stitch length!

Unless you’re at a photoshoot or you have really bad acne, you don’t need foundation. It’s too heavy and just looks like a mask and rarely matches perfectly IRL. Instead apply blush first and then with a tiny concealer brush cover up any unwanted redness.

Anonymous 10236

i don't have really bad acne (although i do have acne), my main issues are hyperpigmentation/uneven skin tone, scarring
i need foundation to look decent

Anonymous 10237

Yes, that makes sense in your case. I should expand on bad acne to mean anything that affecting most of your face.

Anonymous 10245

Another bonus to no foundation is you get really nice skin!

I'm on the copper IUD like this anon. Same thing, it hurt really bad and actually my first few months of periods were worse than ever before…then suddenly it got better and I had way less pain than before and I've had it for almost 5 years now, no issues. Bf said the wire poked him and he didn't like it at first. I was just kinda like '…okay so you wanna use condoms or deal with it?" but he said it stopped being an issue after the first couple times.

Anyone else struggles to masturbate the week before their period?
Even if I do want some sexytimes for myself, my body becomes uncapable of feeling horny. I can reach an orgasm by stroking my clit in the usual way, but the resulting climax is tiny, forced and unsatisfying.
Pretty sure it's caused by some hormonal weirdness going on, but dunno how common it is and what to do about it.

Anonymous 9834

Yeah, I get this too. Then super turned on when I am bleeding. Annoying.

Is there any method of BC that will not cause weight gain? I'm on the combination pill and I've steadily gained 15 pounds over the course of a year and a half despite not eating much more than I initially did. I get it's covid-19 season so I haven't been working out as much, but still, it makes me hate myself so much. Or maybe I do just need to suck it up and try restricting again. It's hard because I'm a recovering anorexic.

Female condom

Unfortunately of bc methods suck.

High bun is the best, how can other hairstyles even compete?

high buns look trashy.

Anonymous 10191

For the high bun to be elegant and pretty, it needs to be very specifically executed otherwise you just look like you just got out of bed. It's not face slimming if you don't already have a slim face. It's not easy either, unless you AREN'T going for the elegant look in which case you just toss it up.

I have been doing the high bun for years and it's mostly just to get my hair out of my face, and it's extremely difficult to make it look somewhat put-together and nice. Usually I just look homeless. On the rare occasions it works well though, it can be really beautiful.

Anonymous 10195

The high bun is terrible. Only extremely beautiful women look good with it, and those women would look even better with nearly any other haircut.

Anonymous 10243

high buns remind me of the girls who bullied me in highschool.
overall not really that great of a hairstyle, though pretty mich every day i tie my hair in a low ponytail or low bun, sloppily pin my bangs up out of my face and tie a bandana in to hide how frizzy it is. most days i dont even brush my hair.

Ideal Body Type thread? Anonymous 1672[Reply]

What's your ideal body type, anons?

Are you into being thin, or curvy, or maybe fit? Were you born a cone shape but long to be a pear? Or maybe you're a banana but would rather be an hourglass?

I'd like to hear your opinions and what you're doing to get there!

I'm not commenting on Billie herself, and I'm not sure what was unclear about my post.

Anonymous 10003

you said you look like a ham and anon is telling you that you don't look like a ham if you look like eilish.

Anonymous 10230

Curvy all the way. I couldn't care less about some folds if that that means more curves. Of course, having little belly fat with large breasts is even better, but if I had to choose I's rather be thicker with curves than extra slim.

Anonymous 10238

Thanks to my new best buddy Mr lockdown I gained a bit of weight, I also worked out more. He tells me that my curvy shape improved and I look better than before. I dunno girls, inner conflict here.

Any girls have under boob acne problems? Anonymous 10119[Reply]

Hello, I am 5’3 (on a good day) and I weigh around 135 pounds. I have 36 ddd’s or E’s. My life is constant pain because of these stupid fucking tits. Constant back problems and itchy, throbbing acne. I am very much so considering a breast reduction but my boyfriend believes I will not be able to breast feed after it. Would there be anyone that could give me advice? How to get rid of acne or about breast reduction. Any input helps at all. Thank you so much.

It wont its just a very dry sulfur soap… Does nothing. The key is mostly having that area dry while sleeping, or sleeping with your face up thats good in general, you will only get pimples at your back who gives a damn lol. Clean face, clean boobs, clean front is what matters more.

Anonymous 10125

Try the usual acne products, just on this area instead of face.
>benzoyl peroxide
>salicylic acid/BHA
>sulfur soap/ointment
I have no underboob acne because I'm flat, but have chest fungal acne. For me, I wash with nizoral (antifungal shampoo), use salicylic acid every other day, and moisturize with niacinimde.
Your combo may be different. Just do research and trial and error.

Count your lucky stars. I’d kill to be flat. Thank you very much for your help, I ordered some of the items online. I hope you have a nice night. I’ll make a update thread in a few weeks!

Have a look at r/abrathatfits if you’re having backpain as you’re probably wearing the wrong size. A 36 band sounds possibly too big, you might be more like a 32 or 34 band, which would mean a larger cup too.

Anonymous 10135

I'm sorry, is nobody going to mention the fact that her boyfriend is 100% wrong and she shouldn't let that kind of misinformation sway her from doing something with her own body?
Because OP your boyfriend is 100% wrong and you can absolutely breast feed after a reduction surgery.


Does this bracelet match my engagement ring Anonymous 9554[Reply]

I've been looking for a diamond bracelet set in gold to match my silver engagement ring/wedding band to the rest of my gold jewelry that I wear on my hands, arms, neck and ears. Everything but my wedding rings are gold and I felt like it didn't match so I bought pic related solitaire diamond bracelet in gold to try and "tie" the rings to the rest of my jewelry if that makes sense. Does it work? I feel like maybe I need to get one with bigger/more diamonds? Am I overthinking it? Diamond is reallyy small in person. Help.

It looks fine to me. Although I don’t really have a good sense of what wedding rings are “supposed” to look like besides the standard silver band / centered diamond template. They both have the same color metal and they’re both shiny, idk what else people are gonna look at. You’re right that the thickness is different but that’s just something to emphasize the ring and make it stand out more

Anonymous 9599

It doesnt seem to clash and looks good.

I'm jelly you have such a nice ring. The only way for me to ever get a ring is if I buy it for myself.

Anonymous 10215

Thanks anon. I'm lucky.

Anonymous 10217

Yeah, I think I might actually be a bit OCD or something because this has really been stressing me out. I impulsively buy jewelry trying to "fix" my look but I'm never satisfied. I have spent so much money and have had to keep my spending habits secret from my husband and hide the jewelry, which doesn't really work because I buy it for every day wear. When he notices it I have to tell him it's from a long time ago or something. He hasn't caught on yet but he will if this goes on.

I'm just so obsessed with reaching the perfect look and I don't even know what that is and am never satisfied. It's giving me so much anxiety. Sigh.

lol my husband notices if I spend 40 bucks urs must be dumb
