@BrideToBe14: i am very lacking in the boob department (read, small B). i’ve often thought about getting them enhanced. but my honeymoon was such a great time that i dont think i would have given it up for some boobs.
your friend also needs to consider if she’s going to have kids, because once you’re pregnant, your boobs CHANGE and will likely fall flat… possibly requiring more surgery to lift those puppies.

@BrideToBe14: “I wonder if the women saying honeymoon though have C size boobies or bigger because it’s really hard when you do have boobs to try to understand how it feels to have really little boobs… ya know”
I don’t think it takes having small breasts to be able to sympathize or come from a place of understanding.
I am a chesty woman. I’ve always wanted a breast reduction, for health and esthetic purposes. Although this is something I’ve always wanted, I could never take away the opportunity for us to go on a honeymoon. It’s just so selfish.
I’ve gone on vacations with my fiance, even short lived ones have a huge impact on lasting memories and bonding.

Are they planning on kids? because boobs can change, lol
ETA: What would she say when people asked about her honeymoon? “No, I’m getting knockers instead.”

@BrideToBe14: The boob job definitely. I got mine done to a natural c/d and I feel so much more confident now. She can go for a honeymoon around 6 months after her boob job (I would give them time to settle first).
But if she is planning on having children then she should wait until afterwards unless she can afford another boob job after as it will pretty much ruin them.

I agree with some of the PPs, if they’re planning on having kids I’d definitely wait until after. If she’d be waiting to do them after the wedding I’d say vacation too (I’d want the new boobs in the pictures).
I’m a small C, so maybe I’m a bit biased (though in my ideal world I’d have bigger boobs myself). I’ve read that generally spending money on experiences brings greater happiness than spending money on things, but I don’t know how true that is. It’s true the boobss would last longer, but I think the time they could spend together on their honeymoon would be more valuable (at least for me). It’s a hard choice though, like you said, since she’s wanted a boob job for so long!

Boobs! She had waited long enough!

That’s a tough decision. I had a breastfeeding augmentation when I was 23 & have had only problems. The left one didn’t settle correctly or something. 8 years later I had to have them redone. Now, the surgeon sewed up the pocket too tight and it has adhered to my chest wall through scar tissue. I’ve been through absolute hell. Getting them removed isn’t really an option bc the scar tissue will still be there & then I’ll be deformed. It’s a long story with horrible pain. But, one persons story isn’t going to deter another person from doing what they want to do. Can she do one thing now & then do the other later? Or is it just one or the other & no u can’t do the other later?

By the way…The first plastic surgeon had a great reputation & the 2nd surgeon was a reconstructive surgeon. It’s all about how the body reacts.

I have a boob job and I would choose boobs! Now I love strutting around in a bikini and that is one thing I am so looking forward to about our honey moon… But I did not have much joy being in a swimsuit before I got the girls.
And, more than likely her Fiance will want to take her someplace tropical to show them off after they are done… Well, if he’s anything like my FI!

Boob job. You can go on vacations anytime, this she’s wanted & has somebody who will help with the cost.

I would go on the vacation first. Save the boobs for another time cause she will be in pain and I don’t think she would want to be a newly wed with a morphine drip.

This is obviously something that has bothered her for a long time. I can’t put myself in her shoes, as I am a curvy woman (and, well, chubby too, let’s be honest) with a gigantic rack that has not wavered even with a 100-pound weight loss. I can’t put myself in the shoes of someone who is less endowed, and how that might feel.
I would probably go for the vacation, though, and save up in the meantime for the boob job.

Honeymoon. I was an A-cup with a big booty before I got pregnant… now I am a C cup (possibly a D cup.. I refuse to go buy yet another bra) and still have 2 months go before delivery. DH always told me if I wanted to have breast implants after we had children I could go for it then… and right now I sure am glad I waited!

@BrideToBe14: I don’t know your friend. But I once was in her shoes, and I NEVER regretted having a boob job. It was one of the best decision I took so far in my life, and it literally changed my life for the best. There was a plastic surgery poll recently and I told my story on it. To me, being flat (smaller than a A cup) was crippling me, and I really, really couldn’t wait until I had my surgery. To be honest, I wouldn’t even book anything beach-related before I had my boob job. I was so ashamed of my body can I couldn’t stand being in a swimsuit in public.
So back to the question : 7 days vs. decades of happiness ? That wasn’t even a ”dilemma” for me, the choice was rather obvious and here I am 3 years later … and I would do exactly the same thing !

@BrideToBe14: I too always talked boob job as a long-term size A. However, pregnancy has done a number on my boobs and the thing I realize is that I WANT my small boobs back. Seriously they were so much more awesome and I felt much better braless than I do with these puppies. I’m ready to have them back. I vote vacation– the joy speant there will be worth it.
