It’s quite some time since I wrote a post for Wicked Wednesday, and this week I was determined to participate again. When I saw the prompt was ‘trademark’, something sprang to mind immediately. However, I asked my lover what he thought my trademark was, and his reply was more or less as I expected (see image). My idea was my nipples, but breasts gives a little more scope!
I am generally happy with the way my breasts look, and I have written before about why I love my boobs! I would like my nipples to be fractionally higher, so they point directly out instead of slightly down, but no doubt we all would change a part of our body if we could.
My nipples are quite large and prominent. Not as large as some, but larger than average. This is something I occasionally feel awkward about, but not as much as I did when I was working in a corporate environment. At that time. I was very embarrassed about the way my nipples stuck out through my clothes. I hated to notice people looking at them and I felt very ashamed. Oddly, I was more uncomfortable at the prospect of female colleagues noticing them rather than male colleagues. I put that fear down to the fact that groups of women in a workplace can often be quite bitchy about each other, especially about women in senior positions.
I do prefer to wear dark colours in any event, but I found that wearing darker or patterned clothes made my nipples less obvious. Eventually, I decided the best way to tackle the issue was to put cotton wool pads in my bra or plasters over my nipples – this made my nipples much less obvious. Covering up my nipples became part of my morning routine, and I became more relaxed as a result.
When I started meeting men again, those whom I met for sex all complimented me on my nipples and the term ‘incredible’ was used more than once. Nowadays, I rarely think about the prominence of my nipples. Occasionally, I might give a fleeting thought to what I am wearing and if they are poking through the fabric of my clothes. I’ve come to the conclusion that I shouldn’t be ashamed of my prominent nipples, and not try and hide them away from view.
Nearly every day, my lover tells me that my breasts are ‘spectacular’! He can’t keep his hands, and his eyes, off them and frequently tries to ‘cop a feel’. as I so eloquently tell him! For many years my breasts received virtually no attention, so I am delighted that, even after being in our relationship for over two years, my boobs still hold such appeal and fascination for him.
From time to time, I love to share images of my trademark boobs by participating in Boobday, which is hosted by Hy at A Dissolute Life Means.
