A couple months ago I had someone ask me if I would do a post on plastic surgery – specifically breast augmentation. The lady in question has nursed several children and her breasts are smaller than before she had children. Since then I’ve had other emails on this from men trying to convince their wife they like her breasts as they are.
Breast size is a huge issue (sorry) these days, and those who follow Jesus are not immune.
There are so many aspects to this, so I’m going to break it into at several posts. If this is an issue with your bride, maybe you’ll want to share these as a conversation starter.
First, I’d like to confront the idea all men want a woman with beach balls in their blouse. Yes, some men think the bigger the better, but other men think small is beautiful and anything more than a “B cup” is ugly. Back when porn was limited to magazines there were several such magazines devoted to women with small (A cup) breasts. It seems at least one of those was published into the 90’s.
I’m going to guess a guy who is into big breasts is not going to date, much less marry, a woman with small breasts – and vice-versa for men who want a woman with small breasts. That said, the reality is most men do not have a strong preference. As one guy put it, “The two things I require in breasts are 1) nipples, and 2) accessibility (this was a very promiscuous fellow).
But what do men prefer – even if just a bit? I did a survey on that a year ago:
As you can seem “medium” was the choice of almost half. Size A cup beat out “Much bigger than D”, and B cup beat out both bigger than D categories combined.
I did a very unscientific look at the first few on-line surveys I found on this issue (Google safe search!) and medium was the “winner” in every one of them. A couple of the surveys used the term “a handful” and that was very popular.
