Mizzoh, you look great. I can really sympathize with you--I also have a big belly, made worse by the fact that I have no big boobs now. I had a lot of complications with my BMX 2/4/16, which resulted in a huge 6cm seroma on the left (good breast) and a 3.5" x 3" x 2" gash in the right (zombie breast.) Thank God I didn't have traditional recon or implants--I would have lost it all. Those areas are still not healed, nor will they be healed until about mid-May. Foo! Due to the location of my wounds right at the bra line, I cannot wear any kind of bra or cami with a shelf bra. I am still wearing dressings on both breasts, which surprisingly give me a little bit of a mound, LOL. No need for a binder, just gauze and tape.
I just came home from a week-long nursing conference in San Diego. Before I left home I decided that this would be my moment of truth--going flat and wigless in front of a bunch of people I didn't' know and would never see again. If anyone noticed, they didn't say anything. I didn't catch anyone staring and no one said a thing about my 1-1/2" long hair. When I returned to Atlanta, I got pulled out of line after going through the body scanner. Apparently, having bandages strapped to your chest and no bra is a red flag for TSA. As I went through the pat down, the girl zeroed in on my chest. I leaned forward and told her I had bandages on because I had had a BMX recently. She pulled her hands off me like they were on fire, LOL. I bet she'll think twice before she pulls another lady with very, very short hair and no breasts out of line!
Anyway, that's a long way for me to say, I'm getting used to going flat. I guess nobody really cares about a 60 year old lady's boobs. I plan to not make a decision until at least 2017, but if I continue to feel as good as I do now I will strongly consider staying this way.
