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

I don't really know myself honestly. I've never asked her about that. I know she has grooves worn into her shoulders from bra-wearing 24/7 with such heavy breasts, though

Anonymous 8228

I essentially always either have on a sports bra while out (one of the 'low-impact' types if I'm not running) or no bra at home. I genuinely worry that i fucked up by boobs by wearing too-small training bras while they were developing. They are not suuper large (c) but droopy as hell. seems unfair.

Anonymous 8274

I used to wear bras, but they were always kinda uncomfortable and the straps kept on falling over for years. this one time I was walking down the street and my bra unhooked itself and fell down out of my shirt.

now I wear bralettes. much more comfortable. and kinda suit my tomboyish style.

Anonymous 8275

>>8274What size are your boobs? What’s the limit on bralettes? Are they only for small ones?

Okay, this is image is hilarious. I can’t remember ever having a bra unhook itself, though. Maybe they were too big?


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.

It was one morning, I went to the bathroom, and there was blood. I was 11 then.

Anonymous 8264

I hit puberty earlier than most. Maybe as a result of being hourglass-shaped. I've started becoming "shapely" and growing hair at 8. Because I was so young, I didn't learn how to use deodorant yet, because people assumed I was too young to be showing puberty signs, and ugh… you can imagine.

12, april fools day at school.. i knew it was going to happen so i didn't rly panic, just quietly walked to the principles office and she was very cooperative and nice, my mom felt bad so she took me home, thankfully there was no visible leakage.

got mine when i was 10, didn't know what a period was, thought i'd pissed blood and that i was on the brink of death

It was in the middle of school. thankfully my mom worked at the school on the staff and she was able to get me home without anyone noticing.


weird body stuff Anonymous 7888[Reply]

>what's the weirdest/grossest body thing that ever happened to you?

i might regret asking this but i just had a weird body thing happen and need to feel less alone.

i've had a bump in my armpit for YEARS. over 10 years. Last week it got inflamed and weird. i treated it with hot compresses, neosporin, and hydrocolloid bandaids to draw the gunk out. it calmed down and i thought that was that. but today i looked at it again and it looked black. i freaked out, but then realized that the black was…hair. i had like the world's longest coil of ingrown armpit hair. that must've been growing all the years?? wtf.

share yours.

Ganglion cyst, it's so fucking annoying but it technically doesn't hurt/impede movement so it's just unsightly and I can't get it removed unless by a plastic surgeon.

Anonymous 8246

I have a small anal skin tag. I used to not really care about it, even though I knew whoever was my partner would see it. My ex called it my little "tail" and it really wasn't a big deal. The current guy I'm with fucked that up. He straight up asked me if it was a tumor and laughed at it and I've felt disgusting since. I can't see any part of my partner as gross, just unique or interesting at worst, so it really affected how I viewed the balance within the relationship. I just want to feel accepted by my partner. I really didn't think a stupid skin tag was anything to freak out about, but I'm wrong.

Anonymous 8253

>I really didn't think a stupid skin tag was anything to freak out about, but I'm wrong
You're not wrong and your partner's reaction was very immature. How would he feel if you made him feel ashamed and insecure about every small detail of himself?

Anonymous 8270

Ugh, I have one on one of my wrists. So annoying. I push on it sometimes even though the sensation grosses me out.


how do you wash your vag? Anonymous 8247[Reply]

i have literally struggled with vaginal odor for 2-3 years now. it is my biggest shame. i dont know what to do about it. i know to wipe front to back, i have been tested for infections and the results came back negative and i was even given anti biotics just in case i guess. i wash my vagina and even after i've dried it there is still a unpleasant smell. once an hour or two pass the smell is absolutely gross and noticeable. i am also someone who gets smegma. i try to wash everything but i just dont understand how i can properly clean and rinse my butthole and taint without getting bacteria in my vagina. i used to not wash very well and i think that is when my smegma problem developed. since then i started using a detachable shower head but i must be doing something wrong if i still stink after a shower. help ;_;

Meant to say "even just a little bit"

That's normal, I have it too. Your vagina will smell a little bit if you smear it on your hand or sniff it close.

>Do you live in a hot country?

You can sweat down there and that can be noticeable but it happens to everyone. Not much you can do but wear cool clothes (cotton) and shower more often.

Anonymous 8260

Thought of more questions OP:

>What type of underwear are you wearing?

Thongs and French knickers can bunch up and be uncomfortable, making you have more discharge to lubricate it or something. Buy the most basic plain comfortable cotton knickers and stick to them.

>Are you wearing underwear at night?

Try sleeping naked or only in a nightgown (cotton) to let things breathe.

Am I the only one that always uses non-bacterial soap inside my vagina, and has never gotten infections?

I know the vagina is self-cleaning, but part of me wonders if that's a myth that you shouldn't wash it, but I'm obviously being anecdotal.

I've never even gotten a UTI before, but I'd feel gross if I didn't wash it with soap.

Anonymous 8268

>I know the vagina is self-cleaning, but part of me wonders if that's a myth that you shouldn't wash it, but I'm obviously being anecdotal.

Vaginas are acidic inside while soap is alkali/basic. Washing with soap there upsets the balance.


Labiaplasty Anonymous 3431[Reply]

Is anyone else considering labiaplasty or has had it performed?

I really want it done.

My labia isn't really that big but you see porn stars who have zero labia lip and since they're featured it makes you feel like that's what is acceptable.. I also think it looks better so I have been insecure about that aspect of myself for awhile.

I want to get it done but I will be horrified if the surgeon doesn't do it probably. I saw some botched images and yikes.

Omg, sex doesn't stretch labia. What you have you keep it forever, no matter how many babies or sexual partners you have.

Anonymous 8162

>You shouldn't compare yourself to porn stars
This, period. Like how actors and models are often chosen because they have particularly notable features or features which align with narrow standards of beauty, porn actors are chosen because they also fit into the narrow standard of "beauty" within their genre of media. How these people look doesn't reflect how the average person looks or what features are "normal" or "beautiful" features. Plenty of people who aren't actors or models find unconditional love every day. Not that it's worth much, but my opinion as a bisexual woman with "small" labia is that large labia are equally fantastic. Sometimes I'm envious of them because I wonder if it'd make penetration more comfortable.

It's also unfortunate that it needs to be said in this day and age, but as other miners have pointed out, no amount of sex "stretches" the labia. Labia only becomes stretched if you purposefully attempt to stretch it out (search "labia stretching" on Google if you're curious.)

Anonymous 8163

I know this is an old thread, but do not do this! You can end up having your whole clitoris removed because the clitoris doesn't show up in anatomical textbook and most men are too stupid about women's bodies:


Any man who cares about whether you have large or small labia belongs in the trash.

Anonymous 8164

> Sometimes I'm envious of them because I wonder if it'd make penetration more comfortable.
Bigger labia don't mean a bigger hole and viceversa. But, one could argue wether they (the labia)can help you spread your wetness around, which would actually help you make it more comfortable. Labia arouse the dick from the outside as well.

Anonymous 8229

This happens to me too sometimes! I had some lacy panties that I would wear occasionally and my lip got stuck in it one of the lace holes it was so painful. I was driving with others in the car so I couldn't deal with it right away and when i finally got to a bathroom it was such a relief.

Question to the girls that shave it all down there: Is this an american/canadian/brit thing? I'm southern european and completely-shaved seems weird af to me. My older sister does it but because whe wants to get her whole body as tanned as possible(she doesn't shave her thighs tho)and wears very thin bikinis. I just cut enough from the sides so it doesn't get out of my underwear. If I shave more, wearing pants hurts.

Has anyone used one of those home laser hair removal things? Actually pulsed light. Curious if they actually work. I have super hairy inner thighs, my bush just keeps going down essentially, and if I shave or wax I get horrible ingrown hairs. Like the next day for shaving.

Everytime you go overboard with sugary stuff you win a full hour of strenuous cardio each day, pick your choice

Try cutting it out slowly. As you go through the sugary stuff in your house, don’t buy new sugary stuff to replace it with.

I have a huge sweet tooth, too. I know it’s hard.

Uh, I'm 5'2" and 123 lbs. My weight is considered average as I have a BMI of 22.5. Your BMI is 18.7 which is right at the start of the "underweight" category.

Can't tell what I look like Anonymous 8129[Reply]

Not sure if it belonged here or /feels/. I know for sure I'm fat, I have been since I was a kid. But I struggle with understanding what I really look like to others and how I compare with the other women around me. There are for sure plenty of bigger girls, but even looking in a mirror or at a picture, it's difficult to wrap my head around. I've gotten a lot of different feedback from different people I know irl but obviously they're biased. Does anyone have a solution/ any tips? A tip other than "lose weight" preferably

You are big, but you don't look bad. Actually, your thigs look nice, like the meat is not gelatine (I have smaller thigs withe celulitis and they look like two melted ice-cream cones xD). You seem to have quite long fingers and that makes your hands delicate. Having a dewlap it's another important thing.

From the upper-right photo I can see that you hide your butt with your shirt. Do you do that regularly? Would you rather find another style for clothes? I used to hide my butt, now it depens on the jeans.

You're skin is too good ;-;

Anonymous 8149

Ty for all the compliments :')
I hide my butt with my shirt a lot, yeah. Mostly because I wear leggings a lot so it's a habit. Also my butt is pretty flat and doesn't look that great imo. Tucking my shirt in makes me uncomfy with how it looks/brings attention to certain things but that could be irrational.

Anonymous 8186


You'd want to bring out your waist and shoulders. Belts, corsets and skirts would do you well. Short biker jackets and thin scarfs are your friends.
You have a nice bossom and skin, bring that out too.
It's mainly wardrope issues that hurt your looks.
Also a bit of style would make you pop, you are pretty much perfect goth fodder.

Anonymous 8211

I also think you have really beautiful skin, I think you should wear blouses that have a big neck opening lmao I don't know how else to call them but maybe I am biased because I love to wear such blouses.

Milk is usually high in sugar. Around 13g per cup

Anonymous 8181

I find no caffeine+low salt+lots of water helps with softness! Also regular chemical exfoliation and two moisturizers layered on top of each other in my routine.
Still a greaseball after a few hours though. If anyone has topical suggestions lmk since I've tested diet elimination of so many things over the past year and none helped with that.

Just goes to show how different bodies can be: I cut milk out for MONTHS since I thought it was a culprit, but I think it may regulate my hormones in some way and things are improving again. Cheese breaks out my back though, maybe something about the yeast or bacteria? Idk.

It's tragic that there is no right answer.
