How much did your personality change?

If you say not at all I wont believe you! LOL

I hear a lot of people wanting to get a BA for more self confidence, that makes me think that your personality would chance; more outgoing, more talkative, wanting to be the center of attention..

I imagine that happening to me OR the opposite and becoming more timid and sheepish and not wanting people to notice my BA.

What are some of your experiences of how your overall personality changed after BA, expected or unexpected, small or big!

Thanks!

OK...So no one else is answering....

Here I go, I'll be brave!

I am the same person that I was before my BA. However, I am slowly noticing that I am walking taller and have a lot more confidence in my appearance. I lost about 60 lbs. after having my son. I was really confident and happy. However my surgery just took it to another level. For the first time, I feel curvy, super sexy and like a woman. It's not about me trying to stuff my bra or look good in clothes. I don't have to do that anymore! And that feels totally amazing!! I feel different, even though I am the same person. You can see in my siggy it says getting my boobs is like a dream come true, and it really is!! Hope I'm making sense and that this answers your question!! Sorry such a long response, but it's truly difficult to put in words!!

Agree with Smileygirl. I, too, am the same person before my ba. Have the same hobbies, enjoy the same music, food. But........I just feel more confident in general. I walk taller, I dress more sexy, I'm proud of my body, whereas before I hid my body. I wore drab clothing, always trying to hide/cower.

So, to your original question. Did my personality change? I guess somewhat. I definitely have more confidence in myself. Life in general is a lot more fun! Funny how having boobs can do that!! LOL

Mine seriously didn't change at all... i was always bigger breasted, i started out a D/DD pre BA so was always use to having larger breasts, i didn't get them for more confidence at all, i just wanted bigger breast then i already had.

I became more confident as well.... but I will admit this... there have been times when my bf and I have been out - I will dress sexy and show as much cleavage as I can - and I get some NASTY, NASTY looks sometimes, some women have been down right rude and become the definition of a 1st class jealous female....and that can (on occasion) put me in a fowl mood. I have also found that I'm almost like an activist for boobs. I love getting into those "discussions" with other men and women in regard to their opinion on them.... A lot of women secretly desire to have them, but until they actually talk to someone who has them, they will keep those desires to themselves for many reasons, so when I get a chance to "sell boobs" - I DO! LOL So I guess the positive side of the occasional negatives I encounter - I am able to allow other women to feel "okay" in expressing their desire to get them as well.

It is sad... but there are too many people in this world that are close minded due to their own insecurities. So for that I say "DO something about it and accept those of us who had the courage to change!!" Join Boobieville! lol

My first thought about this was that my personality wouldn't change, since it never really did when I had bigger boobs while nursing... Then I remembered way back to when I was nursing my first child... aah the good ol days. It was the only time when I had boobs that were perky AND I was skinny at the same time. I remember going to a Poison concert with my hubby and thinking that if he wasn't there, I'd probably be one of the girls flashing the band. LOL So yeah, it could change more than I think.

It may sound ironic, but I would say I've become less likely to make eye contact out in public, and more self-conscious about what I wear. I definitely cover up a bit more, as I've just never been the "look at me" type, & would hate to come off as attention seeking...just looks kinda desperate to me. Of course you wouldn't know that from my avatar or sig pic, LOL! JBI allows me to feel more comfortable showing my sexy side. No real names or faces

Since I got the boobs, I've been more laidback around other girls who would show me up. I just don't care how they look, how they behave or what they say to me. I know I look good and I don't have to get upset anymore.

I just don't feel like I'm missing anything anymore. Before, I was much more sensitive. Its amazing how things change in a week.

i dont think it's changed my personality or the way i act in public. i definitely like the dress up and go out more though. but it's definitely changed my confidence level about my body. i am much more confident with my body now. i am much more confident and its increased my sexuality with my bf as well. i know my body looks good now and it make me want to do things for my bf that i didnt care or think to do before

I knew that I would be a little self conscious but I didn't realize just how much. Don't get me wrong, I don't regret it.... actually soooo happy that I finally decided to go for it after all these years, BUT I feel like some of the clothes I used to wear are a little much and I am so unbelievably uncomfortable in a bathing suit. I'm only 18 days out so I know/hope that I will get used to it and not feel like it is so obvious....

On the other end of the spectrum, I am much more confident naked and feel a lot sexier now (in private) which was really the point for me, I just wish I could get used to them outside of the bedroom, lol.

HTH

I haven't changed much. Not to sound conceited but I already got attention from guys checking out my butt, and I already wore bras that made my boobs look like D cup sizes (thank you fredricks of hollywood).

But... I am naturally a lot more happier (I think this goes with my self-esteem because I finally have the big breasts I've always dreamed of), I walk around topless in my house now (haha, not in a push up bra anymore), and now I'm more excited to go shopping (I hated shopping before), and I can't wait to go on a tropical vacation now. So, yeah I guess you would say I am more excited about life in a different way, but I've always been humble about life even before my new boobs.

I have always been pretty confident but now my self image has improved drastically.

Right after my BA I was pretty depressed (I think it is normal for many of the ladies on here) but this last two weeks, I feel so much better!

I just don't worry about always having the right padded bra/ shirt combo and find myself walking a little taller into public places. It's fun!

I'd say that I'm more self confident in sexier clothing but more self conscious in conservative settings. I'm in Vegas right now and I am very happy to show off my boobs in nice low cut tops. Back at home I am more insecure about it though.

It hasn't changed my personality at all. I am still the same person I am just more comfortable in my skin now in certain situations.

HTH
This hit home for me. I havent had my BA yet but I feel like I just want to feel sexy and confident when I'm in bed with my sexy a** hubby, but not draw attention to myself when I am out and about or in a bathing suit. I feel pressure to choose that 'perfect size' that people wont necessarily notice!

Well for me, it did boost confidence on me. I used to be shy buying bras before. I'd grab a padded B cup bra, go straight to the cashier, cupping the bras hoping nobody would see why on earth I bought a bra obviously too large for me!
Now, everytime I see a lingerie store, I'd take stop over knowing I'd fit those large cups!

not really at all. i have been large breasted since 7th grade though...
i was actually more upset when i realized my breasts were gone(and yes, i was in denial for a bit) i became rather cranky and introverted. but now that i have them back i seem like my old self.

I actually didn't change at all. I had small breasts before but, I was always extremely confident. I didn't get them to be more confident, I only got them because I hated my breasts...I have always been talkative, outgoing, confident and I guess it only added to my confidence but, I don't really see a change in my personality (so far)! LOL
