So, as some may have seen in another thread, I'm getting my breasts done. As a pear shaped size 8 with small B cup breasts I am sick of feeling out of proportion (as well as constantly feeling that sizeable breasts is "required" to qualify for a "hot body". I am in shape, have long legs, small waist etc., but I still see that large breasts on a slim frame is what seems to matter, and qualify for a body to be top notch. I see girls with average figures but big boobs qualify as "hot" and I've even heard guys say that a girl won't be a 9 or a 10 if her breasts are small (even some don't admit it, but I see it's often the case). I have a very "cute" appearance, but feel like the breasts make me remain a teenager in appearance.
I am not getting watermelons - I'm getting a size 325 g, which will make me a full C cup (perhaps a small D, depending on the lingerie brand).
I really have told as few people as possible. I told my American friend who lives in France, my best friend in Copenhagen and a friend in the UK who's going with me.
The result will not look fake (I have a bit of breast tissue, and as mentioned, a butt and hips). I am guessing it will only be obvious to those who know my body and sees it often, if they would see me in a bikini. I know a girl who went from a B to a C, and her mother didn't realize until she told her.
I am not telling my parents (they don't need to know), the problem is my sister. We are very close (I'm 22, she's 27), although lately we've been more "apart" (she's trying to start a new stage in her life, change social circles etc, so she's seemed happy not being much in touch with family lately). She lives back home and we see each other holidays plus trips in between - she's probably coming to London in the end of summer.
Thing is - she is SO gossipy. She cannot keep a secret and she needs to "discuss" everything with everyone. Even if I made her promise not to go around telling people, I am confident she'll tell her best friend and possibly the guy she's seeing (her best friend is crazy gossipy as well, so after that, the info is spread). When I lost my virginity at 17 (to a German guy not in our social circle), I wanted to keep it private, yet she told everyone.
I don't want to say anything before the surgery (it's on Wednesday), because IF she'll have a negative reaction, it'll only be stressful for me, and I'm obviously already nervous about the surgery. I have paid and booked, and I'm ot changing my mind.
I'm 22, so an adult, I live on my own abroad and really I know it's nobody's business. But there is a chance she'll be negative and there is a chance she'll be even angrier when she realizes I've hidden it.
Should I aim to tell her - and if so, how? Can I just wait till she comes to visit me, greet her in the hall with a low cut top and go "ta-dah!"?
How would you feel if your sister (granted she's old enough), did this?
