Or in a few months.
Today I am addressing a problem with male writers. Of course, I guess some females do it too. And some male writers don’t. Whatever. I don’t dig with blags. The thing is, boobs.
Boobs are sometimes hard to understand.
I am reading a book my sister gave me by Mason “Tailsteak” Williams and it’s very good. I’m enjoying it thoroughly; it reads like crack fanfiction and I was hooked from the prologue. Unfortunately, Tailsteak, while being awesome and cool and stuff, made a crucial mistake that I have to say something about.
He wrote about a woman wearing a push-up bra that, “as advertised,” made her 32B measurements look like a 36C.
No bra that is desirable to the sort of woman Tailsteak was describing has ever done that, ever. Because that is a bra that would literally make you appear to be a larger weight class, with boobs proportional to the ones you had before.
Here are how bras work: the number are the inches around your ribcage. I am a 33 which means I most often wear 32 hooked a little loose. The letter is thesizeof your breasts. The letter is the cup size, which is what pushup bras add to.
Therefore, a 32B (skinny woman, smallish breasts) wanting the brief appearance of larger breasts would search for a pushup bra with padding and liftonly in the cup, which means the band would remain a 32. Let’s be frank: Tailsteak is not the worst offender of this by far. Half the erotica I’ve read (and disgustedly abandoned after the first paragraph) is making this mistake.I’ve seen so many writers fall into “larger number means larger boobs” trap and similarly many male assholes tell me that I couldn’t possibly be a 32 because my boobs are big. Yes, they are big. No,Iam not.
Also, I don’t actually know that I knew that about bras. I mean, I know in my brain I was aware of it, but I never actually thought about it critically, “oh this is the band size and so bigger boobs on the same frame would only be bigger cup, whoa”.
Alsoalso, let me know how you like bang once it’s all done.
