I hated my 28K breasts & was told to cover up – I’m so happy I never got a reduction, my tips are the key to confidence

A FULLER bust model admitted that she spent years hating her breasts before she learned how to find comfortable, stylish lingerie.

She said she was told to cover up and begged her mom for a breast reduction before she was able to love her body.

Saterra St. Jean has garnered over 65,000 subscribers on YouTube, where she reviews products for women with big boobs.

Speaking to The U.S. Sun, the 25-year-old confessed that she used to “hate” her size 28K breasts because she was repeatedly put in ill-fitting bras.

SIZE SORROWS

“My confidence was impacted mostly because I was always told to cover up,” she said.

“Even though I was wearing the same tops as everybody else, when you’re a busty woman you get called out a little bit more.

“It’s unfortunate, but as a teenager, you don’t know any different and you think if people are telling me to cover up, then maybe there’s something wrong with me.

“I didn’t have the right size and was spilling out everywhere.

“I thought my breasts were the issue so I hated them.

“I couldn’t even look at them in the mirror, it was a really hard thing for a teenage girl to go through.

“I still know so many women that can’t look at themselves in the mirror and it’s really, really sad.

“It wasn’t that it was hard to find the right size but it was hard to find the right fitter.

“A lot of mainstream stores tend to fit you into a bra that they have in store for the sale versus actually caring about the woman and having it support them.”

St. Jean said she was “constantly stared at” despite wearing multiple sports bras and tank tops to prevent her breasts from bouncing. 

SELF-LOVE PRACTICE

She recounted crying to her mom that she wanted a breast reduction at age 16 but was told of their importance in her future sex life and motherhood.

“I’m so happy and so grateful that she did that because I’ve grown into loving my breasts,” she said.

The fuller-bust model spent time with her aunt, who is a body talk practitioner, to work on healing her body image.

She was told to look at herself naked every day and say “I love you” to transform her way of thinking.

'I think that everyone thinks that bras are the problem but it's not the bra and it's not your boobs either,' she said.

St. Jean said she now loves her body and uses her YouTube channel to champion embracing having a large chest.

She set up her channel after being amazed by a fitter at Brava Lingerie in Australia who put her in the right size just by looking at her bust.

BETTER BUST OPTIONS

She said in recent years the range of bras on the market has continuously improved.

“I think that everyone thinks that bras are the problem but it’s not the bra and it’s not your boobs, either,” St. Jean said.

St Jean said every woman should have an everyday bra, sports bra, strapless bra, wireless bra, and a sexy style

“It really is just the size.

“There’s such a huge lack in the education of actual bra fittings that women just don’t even know what their size is.

“A lot of them guess or they go to fitters and it’s still all wrong.

“Your bra size could shift depending on brand, style, and even color.”

Saterra St Jean is the founder of the YouTube channel Fullerbust Bestie and co-founder of lingerie brand Monsera Intimates.

She told The U.S. Sun every woman should have five styles in their bra collection.

  • Two or three everyday bras
  • Sports bra
  • Sexy lace bra
  • Strapless bra
  • Wireless bra

DEAF TO THE TROLLS

St. Jean said focusing on her self-love journey helped her to ignore negative comments when she began to share her bra knowledge online.

She advises anyone hesitant to embrace their curves to follow the mirror exercise that worked for her.

“Take the time to really know who you are and what you love about yourself and stand in front of the mirror, totally naked,” she said.

“It’s gonna feel really weird at first, but just say, I love you and look at yourself.

“Focus on how you feel about yourself and not what other people think people think of you.”
