I am going to open up and talk about something a little uncomfortable that I’ve gotten quite a few private emails about lately…..and that is breast implants. Nursing two babies did a number on my body. I have been pretty candid about talking about the stretched skin I have on my stomach (if you are new to my blog, you can read more about that here and here), but I would be lying if I said other areas didn’t take a toll too.
One of the side effects of nursing for so long is having nice perky boobs while nursing! Ha. But then they get pretty deflated afterwards. I would be lying if I said I had never considered getting implants…..but I don’t know….something about it just does not sit right with me. In a lot of ways I feel like I would be betraying my message of owning our imperfections and just would not really be a decision consistent with the rest of who I am. It is an incredibly personal decision, and not one that I would ever place any judgement on at all for someone else who felt it was the right decision for them, but just to answer the questions I have gotten about it, at this phase in my life it is not something I would pursue. I have some super thick bra padding that I usually stick in my sports bras for photo shoots to give some perkiness and that works just fine for me 🙂
