Yeah, hip to the D-deficiency and breast cancer connection. I think Vit. D-deficiency is implicated in lots of cancers, right? That being said, I am the whitest kind of white and I don't use sunscreen, and I am not vegetarian.
I try to get regular good sun exposure, as well as eat foods naturally high in D... I love my pastured pork lard.
I use Lugol's (J. Crow's brand dilution) for my Iodine. After, say, two or three months of stepping up to therapeutic dosage my breasts, which were at the time very soft and low i.e. well loved kid soothers, started to get noticeably firmer and rounder(seemed higher, fuller). Provacativa, you said something in another thread about high Vitamin C doses punching up collagen formation... Well I was taking really high doses of C to help me detox junk liberated from the iodine supplementation(halides, bromine). I'm wondering if the new, pumped up tissue growth in my breasts was from the Iodine or from the C? I know Iodine helps with cell death of damaged tissue and spurs growth of new cells(why its so good for wounds and scarring)... Maybe it helped wipe out the worn out tissue in my breasts and, along with the C, worked to build up new healthy tissue?
Anyway, I am pregnant now so had to back off the therapeutic Iodine, and hence stopped taking the high dose C(still doing daily maintenance Iodine). I can't tell if there has been any more change, because any more change can be attributed to milky-boobs. But I am excited to see how my breasts are after this babe is done breastfeeding... I have a hunch that they'll fare better than with my prior two children, before I found out about the iodine. And I'm excited to get back to detoxing. Only a couple years now. *haha*
On nipples... I don't really care most of the time if they show. Sometimes men will oogle and be rude, but I ignore that. Women usually just ignore my bralessness(maybe they wish they could be out of theirs?), which I don't mind.
I like to wear snug/form fitting/stretch fabrics... Like a PP said, the mild compression/squish makes them feel a little less wild and wavy and it tends to keep the worst of my nippage under control. I REALLY like cami type shirts with "tailored" cups... Not so much a shelf bra, but designed to cup the breast. The feel of my jahoobie meat resting on my chest skin bugs me when its hot, so having the bit of fabric that sits under the breast coupled with the very light shaping of certain cuts of shirt feels better for me. I also like halter tops for this reason... I think it is the built in line under the breast that defines the shirts I feel most comfortable going bra-less out and about in. Shelf-bras are okay sometimes, but I find the elastic being too restrictive or uncomfortable at times... I guess thats why I go for the boob cupping designs.
These often tend to be low/V cut... I suppose I don't mind letting em all hang out.
