Anybody here workout?

I work out pretty regularly; regular weight lifting and strength training along with plenty of cardio. I can bench press 120lbs, but I've gone as high as 150lbs on good days.
It's come to the point where friends and family have taken notice because I've become considerably more muscular.
Sometimes I contradict myself because I don't want to be known as the buff girl, but I love seeing those numbers climb on the smith machine. And I can physically do more than I ever was able to before. I don't want to lose that.

Does anyone else here have a workout/exercise regime? Doesn't matter if it's only cardio or if you're a gym bunny like me. Let's talk about it!

Ass Hair Anonymous 7354[Reply]

My ass hair makes me want to commit Jihad. Does anyone use an epilator?

Anonymous 7355

oh my God. My sister. I really should consider that, but I'm scared it'll fuck up my skin

Anonymous 7356

yep, it's painful as fuck but i'd prefer a few minutes of pain and not having to worry about body hair for weeks then having to shave every other day.

Enjoy your itchy ingrown anus hair!

Just get laser hair removal.

do you all prefer an epilator or waxing? got a brazilian a year ago, it was quite painful but the girl who did it was really kind which kept me from sperging out

if it wasnt so expensive and if i didnt have to interact with another person I would wax more, but it is so hard waxing myself. I've been thinking about using an epilator for different parts of my body, which is the better option in yalls opinions?


How to look cute? Anonymous 7321[Reply]

My ideal appearance and style would be the one of a kpop idol or Ariana Grande - problem is, I'm very tall.

I'd love to wear cute skirts and dresses, but whenever I try on something more girly I feel like some old hag playing dress up in kids clothing. And when I wear something elegant and feminine I look even more mature. Same for makeup, everything seems to age me.
As a child I only wore secondhand trousers and pullovers, so I feel like I completely missed out on being a typical girl.
I've been basically dressing up like a business lady in long cardigans and trenchcoats since I was just a young teen (because my mom says this suits tall people) and I feel that therefore (and because of my face) many think I'm older.

Is anybody in the same boat?
I'd like your advice in basically everything: hair, makeup, clothes… are there even any cute things that somebody like me could wear without looking ridiculous? Having a bob hair cut suits me well, but it also makes me appear even larger.
I also don't know what to do with my body itself: I'm naturally athletic, so I look even manlier, stronger, matronly. If I'm at a higher weight and get a chubby face I look bloated and old - not cute like other girls. And when I'm at a lower weight I immediately look sick and haggard. I have big hands and feet, wide hips and shoulders,… it's just extremely difficult.
I'd appreciate any tips.

You must be very quite if no one notices you, but I find it hard to belive that a 6ft woman is "invisible", surely they're over exaggerating.
Post a picture of yourself (if you feel comfortable ofcourse) if you truly think your clothes make you feel plain or even one of your outfits layed out. We must go deeper.

Anonymous 7330

I'm obviously not gonna post myself…
Besides the classmates not remembering I existed thing, when I did an internship somebody straight up told me that I need to be more active and then said the shadow comment, so unless they're lying to me (which doesn't make sense) I really am so silent and plain that I go unnoticed.

Anonymous 7331

Well it sounds like you know what to do. On account of being approached by men, it depends on what type you are after but it sounds like you still have plenty of time left, unfortunately not everyone finds their highschool sweet heart and marries right after like a few of my friends have; wait until you're my age before you start worrying!

Anonymous 7362


I have big hands too, anon! im a tall asian whos more into mature looks than cutesy ones so not sure if itll help but maybe try with cute manis? long button down skirts are generally gorgeous on everyone but i think if you keep it feminine you can definitely pull off the cute style!

Anonymous 7368

I'm also tall and athletic with wide hips and shoulders like OP and skirts like that look perfect on me so I second the suggestion. They draw attention to your waist which gives a nice feminine look and the flare out around your wide hips also looks nice and balances out large shoulders. They go well with dainty flats or even low boots, blouses or simple girly shirts, and cardigans, so they're all-around a good staple item if you want to look more feminine but don't suit the super cutesy uguu style. Add some cute jewelry and you're set.

As for makeup being aging, OP since you mentioned kpop, have you tried Korean inspired makeup where everything is softened and more natural/muted colors? Like blended brown liner, brown and pink tone eyeshadow, light blush and maybe a tiny bit of lip color, those things usually don't age people the way more noticeable makeup does.


Why does my pussy stink Anonymous 7332[Reply]

My pussy has really been smelling awful for the past few days. I've heard it might be my ph levels. Would a cleanse fix it?

Anonymous 7334

Is your discharge any different? Could just be a good ol' yeast infection

Anonymous 7336

Did you change your routine or put anything abnormal in your vagina?

Aren't yeast infections odorless?

I don’t think you should be using a cleanse. Just use water.

Take pro biotics made for women and it will fix that problem. You want the tablet kind.

Have some of you considered to dye your hair ? Natural or unatural color ? Is it a disaster ? Was it pretty good ? Share your expreciences !

as a teenager I dyed my hair black (it was naturally dark brown) and I liked the way it looked but the upkeep was too much for me cause I'm lazy. I haven't dyed it in around 10 years now.

It was a home box dye and easy to do. I sometimes watch hair fail videos and they all start with homebox dyes! they usually involve bleaching though which is something I would go to a pro for if I ever wanted that, I doubt I'll dye it again

Anonymous 7317

I bleach my hair. It's fun being blonde, you get a lot more attention. But it's also tiring. I've done platinum blonde, also ombre from my natural light ashy brown color. I have about four inches of my natural color and I'm thinking about just going back to my natural color because I'm tired of the upkeep and chemicals. It's hard to stop being blonde though.

Anonymous 7320


I use henna hair dye (Caca Rouge from Lush) every couple months. I'm a natural brunette and it makes my hair this gorgeous auburn red color. I always wanted to dye my hair red, but most dyes look unnatural. I'm really happy with how the henna looks. Pic isn't me, but is similar to how mine looks.

Where do you buy your bras, miners? Any brands you particularly like?

I definitely value comfort over looks when it comes to bra-shopping. My favorite are Maidenform's wireless bras. I hate underwire on bras and I hate clasps on adjustable straps that tend to show through tight-fitting shirts - this one has neither. But I dislike some aspects of the the design. The big bra cups and wide straps sometimes show when I try to wear a lower v-neck.

Oh, got to check that out! I love their built-in bra dresses, and if they make their bras the same way, sounds really comfy.

Anonymous 7339


I buy them from this great boujie bra place south of where I live. My favorite brands they have are Frey and Natori. Pic related is feathers contour plunge bra by Natori. It's my favorite bra, but I'm in need of buying some new ones.

Anonymous 7345

I wanted to love uniqlo bras but as perfect as they fit on the cups they didn't ever fit on my back (I have a large back/ribcage I guess) and as far as I know the sizes are only in S-XL or something and not cup and band measurements.

Anonymous 7351


A second on Natori bras, I'm wearing a feathers one today. I find them usually at Nordstrom Rack. Calvin Klein is also good for comfort and looking good under clothes without being too plain/ugly. True & Co. also have a good selection but they are not really cheap.

For fun and/or just for myself bras, I have liked Playful Promises, Agent Provocateur, La Fille d'O, etc.

Anonymous 7352

Running I like Moving Comfort, especially the Fiona and the Rebound Racer. I’m somewhat top heavy but have never had back pain running in these, they don’t squash my boobs, they don’t allow any bounce, and they come in fun colors.

Day to day, VS basic demi cup in a handful of neutral colors.

And, yes, I spend a lot of money on bras. But you get what you pay for imo.


bras Anonymous 3569[Reply]

do you wear bras? why or why not? (also do you guys cover your nips if not?)
personally i don't wear bras but i cover my nipples, partially out of respect for those that would rather not see my nipples and partially because it hurts when it's cold lol

They’re not flat and I’d feel weird not wearing anything since my nipples get hard when they rub against something or it’s cold. I range from 36a to 34b depending on the brand.

my boobs are small so i don't wear bras - literally don't need them. i wear tops sometimes where you can clearly see my nipples and it's actually feels really liberating and cool

Anonymous 6414

I'm a 34D and I only own 1 real bra (a pushup from VS) that I will only wear for when I want to have big tits.
I wear bralettes (like the Calvin Klein ones without lace or anything) for regular life stuff and sports bras for high-impact stuff. I've gone braless before, but I like having an extra layer in the winter to cover any hard nipple issues.
Used to relate to >>3574 but I have stopped giving a fuck.
Round, pushed up boobs that look like perfect orbs are so 2009.

Anonymous 7340

Y'all that are saying you guys have small tits and don't normally wear a bra, how small are yours? I think I'm a c-cup, but I wish they were smaller because then it'd be really easy to not wear a bra all the time.
If I'm going out to Walmart or going for a walk with my boyfriend, I'll tend to wear clothes that hide the shape of my upper half so that it's less obvious. But it doesn't help that I have very broad shoulders/almost barrel chested so there's a gap between my boobs.
The bras I do wear have no wires and have little/no padding.

I wish I wasn't self conscious about my breasts. Bras are dumb.

Anonymous 7344


I wear bralettes. I recently treated myself to a couple nice ones from free people (all on sale from asos) and I love them. I donated all my old normal style ones to a homeless charity and now only have bralettes. I have small boobs (I'm a B cup) but always wear a bralette when I'm out and about because I don't want anyone to see my nip outline and also I like my boobs to feel secure. I've never considered just covering my nips, I might look into this - thanks anon!


Anonymous 4914[Reply]

I always hated my tiny boobs but lately it started to bother me way too much. They are super small, when I lay on my back I'm completely flat. On top of that I'm really tall (taller than a lot of guys) and skinny and I think it makes them look even smaller

how do I deal with it? Seriously are there any tricks to make them seem at least a bit bigger? I tried gaining weight but even when I had 15kg more they didn't grow a bit

it's such a shitty reason to not like myself :|

I know this board is pretty dead but thought I'd ask anyway.

My boobs are small which I'm alright with but does anyone else's sternum (breast bones) stand out a lot even though you have a normal BMI? Coupled with my small boobs, it just looks unattractive imo, like I'm a bony teenage kid.

Anonymous 7028

I have this, anon. I'm not underweight, either. My boobs are super small and far apart, and I'm tall. I don't like how it looks 100%, but I'm trying to learn to accept it.

Endometriosis is a disorder where the lining of the uterus, the endometrium, grows where it's not supposed to - in and on the Fallopian tubes and ovaries.

Wonder what that feels like?

A study of people with endometriosis got the following descriptions:


>dragging pain to the legs
>shooting rectal pain
>sense that insides are being pulled down

I had it for idk, 15 years or so. Used several different versions of hormonal birth control including Depo. Only thing that worked was stopping my periods completely. I didn't have a bunch of excessive bleeding, but holy shit the pain. Never passed out from it but came close a few times. My stomach is permafucked from years of taking NSAIDs because Tylenol wouldn't even touch the pain and nobody likes prescribing opioids for chronic or recurring pain for obvious reasons. Weed helped, but it was still illegal back then (go-to-prison illegal, not just ticket illegal) so I only used it a couple times. Drinking helped but I don't recommend it for obvious reasons. Valerian root and heating pads or hot showers helped a tiny bit but not enough to make it possible to function.

Eventually had a complete hysterectomy because I also had PMDD and nothing was really helping that very much. Even the shot didn't really totally get rid of it, and for some reason I started having breakthrough symptoms between shots. Between the two, my life was damn near unlivable. Now I'm living that childfree life, and if I end up getting osteoporosis, well, at least I had a few good decades which is more than I would've gotten otherwise.


When did you get your first period? Anonymous 4796[Reply]

As the title says.
I have a friend that has an 8yo daughter and she already has hairs under her arms. My friend is a little bit freaked out because she doesn't want her 8yo to get her period yet. I mean, who would want that?
I got mine when I was 11 or 12, and so did my friend. Do you guys think this is genetic? We've read stuff online about it but we want to hear your opinion. Also she has gone to the doc before and even though her daughter is not showing any "puberty signs", the doctor said that nowadays is normal to get their period earlier than before.

Around 6 months before I turned 13. I didn't get any boobs at all until at least a year later, and I got armpit hair first, just before I turned 12.

Had them when I was 14 years and a half which is somewhat late. I have cousins that live in the middle of vineyards in rural France and they got theirs way younger than my sister and me. I read that pesticides, fertilizers and all the crop protection products they grew up in the middle of were endocrine disrupters that could cause early puberty amongst females. But I think it mostly comes down to genetics.

Also I have noticed that girls who have early period tend to be plumpier and more curvy than other girls.

>Also I have noticed that girls who have early period tend to be plumpier and more curvy than other girls.

That's just your wishful thinking.
Periods usually end your growth so if anything the girls who get them later should be bigger.

Anonymous 7304

I got terrible "stomach" pains days before my period came for the first time. My parents took me to the doctor and got me all sorts of tests and an endoscopy. Then my period dropped and we understood that the stomach pains were actually cramps. Now as an adult I have terribly painful cramps and constantly fuck up my stomach from taking too much ibuprofen. Fuck periods.

Anonymous 7327

Is this true? I grew another 5 inches after I started having periods. I could be an outlier though.
