Dear Dish-It: Is It OK To Sleep On My Chest?

Dear Dish-it,


I've been stressing about this. If you sleep on your stomach does it affect how your boobs grow? Do they stop or grow slower or is it that some girls just have small boobs and it doesn't matter how you sleep?


Booby


Dear Booby,


That's a good question - I think loads of girls who are going through puberty wonder about that. The good news is, it doesn't matter how you sleep. You can sleep on your stomach, side, back or hanging from a tree like a monkey - your chest size is going to be what it's going to be, no matter what!


So, how can you tell how big your breasts will be? Well, that's a tough one - there are lots of different factors involved. Usually, you just have to be patient and wait to find out. Once a girl starts going through puberty, her breasts will go through five “stages” of growth over the next five to six years, until their full maturity is reached by age 17 or 18. The final size of a girl’s breasts is determined by heredity (the genes that make your eyes the same color as your sister's or your nose the same shape as your mom's), and can range from very small (like bra size AA) to very full (such as size EE). Breast size varies greatly among women, and all sizes and shapes are normal and healthy!

How Long Do You Wear Your Bra?

  • All day - even while I'm sleeping.
  • Less than 12 hours.
  • More than 12 hours, but not to bed.
  • I don't wear a bra yet.

I wouldn't worry about getting "in the middle of their relationship". If he makes a pass at someone else (you?) then that's HIS problem, not yours... and he probably wasn't worth your friends' time in the first place. Sorry, but you can't fix other people's stupid. And if it's you who's chasing, remember: friends are more important than some stupid/angsty short-term fling. Trust me-- I lost a few friends that way, and those relationships doesn't last very long afterwards. #TeenageWisdom

I rather you tell them the truth.....It's better to get help during times like this.. But if you wanna go down THAT road. (which includes lying, deep guilt, and possibly more scars...just a warning.) Here's how. 1. Hide them, wear bracelets long sleeves, whatever. just do it. 2. LIE. say you cut your self from glass of a REALLY bad paper cut...anything. 3. STOP!. Don't cut, easiest thing to do. At least let the scars fade... Like I said, I don't really want to help you with this stuff. TALK to someone. I cannot stress this enough. Good Luck....
