In the spirit of body love, we always make an effort to stay abreast (teehee) of new ways to promote a positive body image. But sometimes, you just can't help but feel like you were given the short end of the stick, especially when you're trying to ask the saleslady at the bra store if she has any AAs in stock, and she's like, "We don't carry batteries here, honey." Or when you're walking out of the abovementioned store in humiliation and defeat and you see a girl with double Ds sashay past like it's no big deal. In situations like this, it's important to know that you're not alone, and that someone understands your struggles. Because we totally do! Remember: your cup size is not a measure of your self-worth. Now, let's go find those AAs. #coolstorybra

In love, as in cleavage, you can't force what's not there.

It's not a package deal, but you know what is? This super cute coordi set that I CAN'T buy because my upper body's an XS and my lower half is an M.
7 How to survive the pain of being accidentally elbowed in the chest.
No cushion, no protection. We'll smile and pretend it's okay but deep down, we're dying. Dying.
