Finding The Right Support
I am 14 and I have pretty big boobs for a girl my age. It's really embarrassing in P.E. because, even if I wear a bra, my boobs still stick out and bounce in my school's polo top and the guys stare. What should I do?
One of the most annoying things about being a girl is dealing with breasts. If we have small boobs, we want them to be bigger. If they're too big, we desperately want them to stop drawing so much attention! First, you should look around for some full-support sports bras to wear in gym and when you are playing sports. There are a ton of bras on the market today that are actually designed to minimize how big your breasts look, as well as help to reduce bouncing. Take a look at www.Balicompany.com and www.Hanes.com for some ideas on what to buy. You could also ask for a bigger shirt to wear in P.E., which might make you feel more comfortable.
To Shave or Not to Shave
I have hairs on my belly button! Is this normal for a girl? I have a great body and I want to wear belly-baring shirts. Should I shave or wax? I get really self-conscious when I'm changing in the locker room for P.E. and am not sure how I am supposed to wear a swimsuit joeyscrush
Having hair on or around your belly button is totally normal - even for a girl. It's understandable for you to be self-conscious of the hair around your belly button but the last thing you want to do is shave your stomach. Shaving creates stubble and no one wants a prickly tummy. If you are set on getting rid of this hair, talk to your mom, older sis, or another female relative about getting your navel-area waxed. There are a ton of products that you can get at your local drug store or you can arrange to get it done by a professional esthetician.
