Happy National Cleavage Day!
Eleven years ago, in 2002, Wonderbra decided to celebrate cleavage by giving it an official day of it’s own and so National Cleavage Day was born.
I really like National Cleavage Day because, to me, it represents the mile stone of acknowledging I’m a woman and being happy in my skin. As a developing teenager I hated the sight of myself developing boobs and looking like a woman. I didn’t feel defined as anything particular when I was just a girl and life was simple. The encroachment of womanhood threatened me and I spent half my teenage years trying to convince myself nothing was happening and hid behind baggy tops. Now I’m a grown adult I’m relieved to say I left that feeling of resentment and embarrassment behind me. To be proud of my cleavage is liberating and I actual revel in being a woman with all my curves now. National Cleavage Day is a bit of light hearted fun but marks an epic personal achievement.
