On Facebook yesterday, I posted the status: I am one of those girls that shows a lot of cleavage ... but I am not one of those girls that lets my cleavage talk for me. There is a difference.
I suppose that, to men, cleavage is cleavage - that they don't give it much thought. Well, they probably give it a lot of thought - hahaha - but I doubt they question why one woman is comfortable showing her fluff and another is not.
I don't mean to suggest that my reasons for showing cleavage are better or worse or even all that different than any other woman's reasons - I just meant to suggest that there are reasons why I do, and I am very aware of those reasons.
First, and foremost - I am comfortable with my body, appreciate the beauty of a woman's body, believe that my breasts are beautiful and one of my assets. Am I aware of the attention my breasts draw? Absolutely. Is that one of the reasons I choose to "feature" them in the low-cut or tight-fitting clothing I wear? Absolutely. Am I aware that a woman showing her cleavage is often viewed in a "negative" way by other people? Of course. Do I care? Not in the least.
I am a strong, capable, intelligent woman that chooses to live her life the way I want - regardless of what other people might think. One of the reasons, I believe, I tend to dress flamboyantly (aside from the fact that I dress to please myself) is partly because I know that the clothing I wear actually contradicts other, equally prominent strengths of my personality. What I mean to say is - I sometimes do it to see if people will take the time to look past my appearance to get to know the other (equally as interesting) sides of me behind the beautiful breasts. And, also, to be honest - to piss people off. I get a certain, odd thrill in seeing someone get riled up over how I dress. I would never intentionally try to offend anyone, but what I have learned is that there are no set rules or boundaries when it comes to offending people - some people will find any reason to claim something is offensive.
My breasts and the sexy clothing I choose to wear are part of who I am, and express a portion of my personality that I MUST express in order to be ME. But ... I am more than my cleavage if you take the time to get to know me. In the meantime ... enjoy the view :)
