Story 126

I was teased so much about my ‘flat chest' from when I was 12 to when I was 18. This teasing mostly came from male friends, who would take it as a joke. I lived in fear in public situations as one of them would make a spontaneous joke about it. One boy asked me how I could ever expect to satisfy a man with a chest so flat. I spent the whole of sixth form cursing how my chest hadn’t got bigger and would wear baggy jumpers to hide my shape. In high school I had the boy who sat next to me in science say ‘you really have nothing there, do you?’ and ‘you’re too skinny. I like girls with more meat on them.’ It ruined my self confidence and I haven’t been swimming apart from abroad since I was 12 because I didn’t want anyone to see my chest in a swimming costume.
