Saggy Tits but Bloody Gorgeous Inside

Us ladies are a funny (fabulous, wonderful and charming) bunch of people. No sooner has a friend on Facebook given the slightest whiff of concern about saggy boobs and there are 25 women telling her (quite rightly) that she is beautiful inside – at the same time as being the voices of realism and telling her that they too have saggy tits since breastfeeding 1, 2, 5 kids and then throwing in something sex related along the lines of: bet hubby doesn’t care though 😉 to which the one with saggy tits replies: glad I’m not the only one! THAT’S why we are so amazing, because we empathise, but we are realists. We empathise because we’ve been through similar experiences, we’re realists because these experiences are often shit and sometimes demoralising and often painful, all in varying degrees and we know that you can’t always sugarcoat it.

So back to the, ‘but you are beautiful inside’, in all its various guises.

... inside. The more you show who you are, the more beautiful you will be

What I want to know is, us ladies are so bloody good at dishing all this out, why do we find it ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE to believe our own hype? Because let’s face it ladies, if we really did believe this, why the hell are we spending so much money on make-up? Why are we chucking bloody awful slimshakes down our necks and pretending we’re ok doing it (at the same time as retching into the sink)? Why the heck are we googling ‘tummy tuck’ and thinking which of the kids we would sell to pay for it? If we’re all so bloody gorgeous on the inside? LIKE THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS! The point is, of course, that however lovely we are as people, most of us want to look good on the outside too, no matter how much we all, in each others’ lowest moments, are trying to convince ourselves otherwise.

So how about some alternative quotes to wheel out the next time a friend tells us that she hates her tits or her arse or her hair or her thighs. Perhaps these will encompass both empathy and realism in fairly equal measure, without us having to muster up a weak smile and nod when one of us tells you that you are inwardly beautiful, whilst you are thinking: but I wasn’t feeling that inner beauty today, as I told the husband he was a twat and shouted back louder at the kids than they shouted at me. These quotes are for us ladies:

  1. Right, I’m going to put it out there. I am definitely not the most body confident person…BUT I can say I actually prefer my boobs post kids? I always wanted a smaller pair and I don’t mind the deflated look! I like to think of it as Parisen model chic 😉
    Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub with a banging bangers post!

  2. This is very true, and something I’m constantly saying to my friends and yet don’t leave the house without 4 layers of makeup on my face in case I scare anyone!

    1. I know and funnily enough I spoke yesterday to the friend mentioned at the start of the blog about our conversation years ago and she laughed and said she’d never go anywhere without make up on now! X

  3. Bwahahaha! Love it! I too struggle with my “after baby” body. Especially when at the beginning of the year I weighed as much as I did when I was pregnant with my first. But I have been on a self improvement kick this year and am determined to feel healthier and better about myself. I don’t care what anyone else thinks….it only matters how you feel about yourself I say! #coolmumclub

    1. Number 1 rule…NEVER weigh yourself. Number 2 rule…if you do weigh yourself, NEVER weigh yourself when pregnant!

    1. I love that: my boobs have lost their stuffing! Brilliant. Exactly, so bloody what 🙂 Thank you for commenting.

  4. Love this post! And, I gotta say, I go against the grain a bit. I never where make up, barely brush my hair, avoid mirrors and have perky little boobs (okay, I’m flat chested). The Mrs, she carried Little and Big, another beautiful thing that can happen in life with two girls and two moms. #momsterlink

    1. Brilliant! No need for all the extra faff of make up, whatever those young vloggers try to tell us! Thank you for commenting.

  5. Sheer brilliance! “We both look a little bit shit today” is what my reflection and I say to each other frequently. Love the saggy boobs / well fed quote too! That so calls for a T-Shirt range! 😉

    1. Thank you! And I love the idea of a t-shirt range – I’ll get partner (designer) on to it straight away 🙂

  6. I have literally only started in the last week to leave the house with out makeup. I used to have to look immaculate with perfect makeup and hair… somewhere along the parenting line i stope caring. How long will this last! #brilliantblogposts

  7. DO you know I genuinely do care less about what my body looks like now. Before I was obsessed about the size of my arse, and now I couldnt really care less. Ive more to worry about to be honest. And in agreement with your last words of wisdom, sometimes we do all just look a little bit shit! Meh! #brillblogposts

  8. That made me giggle & it’s so true. I am forever ever telling people how fabulous they are while being full of self doubt! Thanks for making me smile , Tracey #brilliantblogposts

      ( posted twice as typed my blog name incorrectly in first ?! Such a wally )

  9. I don’t mind looking a bit shit sometimes, I’m quite happy in my comfy clothes & big cardy plus that’s when I get the most snuggles from the kids, although I can rock a frock when the times calls for it too! #BrillBlogPosts

    1. You rock that frock girl! Love it! You can’t beat a pair of joggers though, can you 🙂 Thank you for commenting.
