Back boobs

Conversation I had with Maile in the dressing room of a store that had nothing that fit me correctly:

me:  EVERYTHING IS TOO SHORT ON ME.  I want to open a new store called “Two More Inches”.  All of the clothes would have two more inches of sleeve, chest and hem.  I would totally shop there.

Maile: My shrink says we need to learn to appreciate our finer points.  Like you have excellent nail beds.

me:  And your elbows are totally sexy.

Maile:  Aw.  Thanks, girl.

Me: And if back fat were boobs I would totally have four boobs.

Maile:  WHICH WOULD MAKE YOU THE SEXIEST WOMAN EVER.  We need to make lingerie to show off our back boobs.  Like a bra with four cups.

me:  Mine would be a DD in the front and a budding A cup in the back.  Technically men are totally missing out on two extra boobs.  It’s just the nipples that are missing.

Maile:  Right?  Stop getting so hung up  on nipples, assholes.

me:  Plus, your back boobs would never get breast cancer.  Who gets back cancer, amIright?

Maile:  Yeah.  Why doesn’t anyone ever get back fat cancer?  Or finger cancer.  You never hear about anyone who lost a pinkie to cancer.

me:  I like the boob idea.  Plus, skinny teenage girls would finally feel jealous of us.

Maile:  And we could be like “Just be patient.  Your back boobs will come in eventually.  It just takes time.”

me:  Time and enchiladas.

Maile:  EXACTLY.  And when you feel hungry you can just say that you’re building up your back boobs.  BECAUSE YOU TOTALLY ARE.

me: So basically eating enchiladas now makes you sexier.

Maile: Someone bring us a Nobel prize.

  2. I would totally support this “Two More Inches” store – think of the possibilities! =)

  3. It would totally make teenage girls jealous. You should invent the 4 cupped bra. Lots of women would buy it. Love the blog. Hilarious!

  4. And remember, NOTHING shows off back boobs better than a bridesmaids dress! We can all only hope to be asked to be bridesmaids at this point in our lives and and revel in the fact that we’ll be sexier than the bride : )

  5. Awesome! I totally feel better already :) and I want to go shopping with yall next time!!

  6. You never heard of heel cancer either. Based on how try and sandpaper-like my hoofs are all the time, you’d thinking something about be a muck down there.

  7. If I had a Nobel prize in my back pocket, it would be all yours. But not my back boobs – if they’re about to get sexy, I’m keeping those!

  8. I thought I was the only one with freakishly long arms and too much body on my torso for tops to reach my belly button. I avoid clothes shopping but would definitely shop at ‘Two More Inches’. I’ve long thought that back boobs were underappreciated. Bring in the double trouble bra, I say.

    Jess recently posted It's true: I do not gargle donkey balls..

  31. I would have to have a two less inches store, as I am short and kinda round so everything is always to long if it fits other places. Sleeves and pants need just two inches less and I would me good to go. Maybe we could put our stores next to each other. Then we could corner the market. Oh and then we need a shoe store that sells shoes in different sizes. Like I need a 7 on one foot and a 6 1/2 on the other. That would be awesome.

  32. Two more inches!!!!

  33. I refer to my back boobs as “wings o’fat”…I think if I ate just a few more enchis I might be able to fly. In a magical, Pegasus-like way, of course.

  34. Everything is at least two inches too long for me and I will gladly donate.

  35. Bwahaha. That is effing fantastic.

  47. But you have forgotten about the side boobs. Those are the boobs that appear when you lay down. Actually, guys don’t really realize it, but our whole torso is comprised of boobage.

  48. Two More Inches sounds like a place men would shop.

  52. I’m 5’10”. I need 2 more inches to happen. Please, for the love of God, make it so.

  53. Preach!

  65. If you build that 2 inches more store, I’m THERE. Being tall sucks…everything is at least 2 inches too short.

  66. Yea, if I came across a store called Two More Inches I would be expecting a totally different product. Just saying. Lol

  67. I seriously thought the title said, “Black Boobs” at first and I couldn’t imagine what it could possibly be about. This was way funnier than I expected. As a man, I’m impatiently waiting for the 4-cup bra design…get on this ladies.

  73. I would tell you about my toe cancer, but you would just think I was crazy. And believe me, I get enough of that at home. Suffice to say, toe cancer is wily and you never know where it will surface (attack) next.

  74. I had a fatty limpoma removed from my back right about in the back-boobs area. Does that count?

  77. Next door to your shop I’m opening one called ‘Two inches fewer’. It’ll do really well because of all the publicity it’ll get from people arguing that it should be called ‘two inches less’. Twitter will go mad. But I’ll finally have jeans that fit.

  81. I went to New York city and got properly fitted for a bra at a wholesale lingerie shop by an orthodox woman who is my new hero. She got me into some bras and a corset that totally eliminate my budding As…I was overjoyed at the time. Now…have I just denied myself of the next big thing?! Oy

  82. It would be interesting to see what type of shoppers would walk into a store called ‘Two More Inches’. Maybe lots of men wearing sunglasses and baseball caps.

  83. I should hook you up with my girlfriend so you guys could go into business together because if I had a nickel for every time I heard “I could use two more inches” I’d be rich.

  85. I have always told my girlfriends I was going to open a store called “Hips and Sleeves”. It would be for real women with real bodies.

  91. two more inches could have a men’s division too! what man doesn’t want to shop there? yessir, i need to drop by two more inches to have his pants taken out!!!

  92. I was just bitching about how short shirts are in stores. I’m not tall and still they are too short. Also can 2 more inches sell dress for us larger chested girls? If I don’t wear a tank top under a sun dress I run the risk of getting a indecent exposure ticket.

  93. You’re hilarious!

    Try Lands End for clothes with more inches. I recently got 3 dresses there that had sleeves, completely covered my boobs, and actually went all the way to my knees all at the same time!

    My back boobs and thighs of hate and doom are sold!

  99. Dude, we need to shop together. We’ll always buy matching outfits because you can totally have two inches from all my stuff. Seriously, I’m 5’2″ and I was once shopping in a store specifically for petite people (hello, Petite Sophisticate) and even there… where shit is supposed to fit me, I was told that really, I’d need to find something classified as a mini-skirt to even attempt a knee length. Apparently I have no thighs… length wise, definitely length wise. Width is not an issue. lol My friends look at the super cute dresses for the young girls that ONLY cover their asses… totally okay for me cause that shit is catholic school approved on my stubs.

  100. We have totally got to promote this idea. I already have fabulous boobs in the front, but we could convince the skinny chicks that back boobs are cool :) It would be so worth it…and I could finally stop hating my back fat.

Not that I got them all that often before, like maybe I’ve had three in my entire life, so no more and I haven’t exactly lost anything and hopefully I haven’t already gotten nail bed cancer.

    As someone who no longer has ANY nipples due to asshole breast cancer, I fully support your body positive endorsement of back boobs. I don’t have those either, but as someone with no boobs at all, I will now be insanely jealous of anyone with extra boobs. <3

  119. I need the “two fewer inches” store. Everything that fits over my front boobs and my back books has sleeves that go to my knees. (And if it fits over my enormous butt boobs it covers my feet.)

  120. The other day I was thinking about how the heavier I get, the more symmetrical I become. I mean think about it – back boobs, plus if I wear pants that are too small I get a front butt too! And symmetry is beauty! :)

  154. I could totally go for a store that is two less inches. Everything is too long on me. LOL, want to trade?

  155. Thank you, Jenny. I’m having a low day, not feeling the best about myself and thinking of myself as unattractive, and this made me smile.

  156. I just wear a t-shirt that says “I used to be TOTALLY HOTTER. Just think about it for a sec. You’ll see it.” Works for me.

  157. Yes to Two More Inches!!! (In all kinds of ways, really…) I am not tall, nor am I long-torsoed. However, my giant amazing rack means that by the time shirts and dresses make their way over and back to my (much, much smaller) rib cage and waist area, they have lost half their length. Or something scientific like that — anyway, the end result is I am always ordering the Tall version of all shirts whenever possible so that they make it as far down as I would prefer. Also, I am not hip, I guess, and I like all my skirts to fall _just_ below the knee, which generally requires basically exactly two additional inches of skirt. So I’m on board with this all the way.

  160. I think mini skirts really look good in you. You are a long legged girl, and that’s what made you look like a model! So sexy!

    Born27 recently posted Internet Phone Number.

  161. So, you can totally have my two inches because I need a store that’s called “2 less inches” and I’m not talking petites because you can not be fat and short. Clothing manufacturers just don’t allow it.

  162. My mom had cancer in her toe. They took it out, so she had to come up with something more interesting to have wrong with her. Now I think that’s her hobby. Plus, now if my toe ever hurts, I wonder if I inherited toe cancer.

    My life is weird. Thank you for helping me see I’m not theonly one. lol

  163. Two More Inches also sounds like it would get a LOT of mis-hits for people looking for dick enlargement that actually works.

    A store named “Two More Inches” would attract the wrong kind of clientele me thinks.

    (sigh) if only you were referring to 2 more inches of height …

  165. Well. I was going to try to lose some of the weight I have packed on this summer by guzzling endless bottles of cold beer but screw that! I am embracing the back boob.

  166. Ha :) Back boobs are heading my way, too!

    Also, I feel your pain on the short clothes.

  167. Some friends and I used to say we were going to open a women’s clothing store called “OddBodies.” Instead of departments like “Juniors” and “Misses” ours would be “fat and short” or “tall with big boobs” or “huge butt.” It would just be so much easier to call it what it is. What the fuck is “Misses” anyway???

  168. I just picked up your book and I cannot stop laughing, thank you so much!

  169. Well, I always talk about extra boobs when the bra is too small..kinda squeaks out the top, ya know?

  170. The only problem that I see is that skinny bitches would totally be jealous of our enormous back boobs and then would start getting back boob implants! Then we’d have to complete with silicone implant back boobs, which really couldn’t compare to our natural back boobs, but we’d still develop an unnatural self-consciousness about our back boobs and then the cycle would continue…

  171. I just have to tell you, I just finished your book and it was fantastic. The ex lax rapist chapter had me laughing so hard I was silent laughing and crying. Thank you for sharing your stories with us:)

  172. As someone who is 5’9″ with a large chest, I would totally appreciate a store called ‘Two More Inches’.

  173. I just recently “discovered” you and your book and I’m so glad I did! I breezed through the book and laughed my ass off, stopping to read a chapter here and there to my husband. And even when he didn’t care, he laughed his ass off too. And now you’re a daily blog read for me. Thank you Jenny Lawson for sharing your stories. If you’re interested, I run a small review blog and reviewed the book here:

    Mary V recently posted Let's Pretend This Never Happened.

  174. I have to be honest… I didn’t read this post, but I did just finish your book and wanted to share with you how it ended with me. It was almost as if you planned it. I was laying in my hammock. It has been so freaking hot but today was overcast and kind of chilly. Anyways, I was determined to have the book finished before it got dark. Just as I started reading the part about the truth of underwater squirrels, I heard a rustling in the tree above me. Then within two minutes the evil squirrel in the tree started bombing me with nuts from the tree. I ran inside to tell my parents but they just shook their wads much like I imagine victor would. My mom even asked if I saw a squirrel. I went back outside to get my shoes and I kid you not, a huge but landed just where I had been laying in the hammock. The evil squirrel almost got me.

  175. You know how they say when you’re old, you have to decide whether you want to look good coming or going? Cuz if you’re thinner you look good from the back, but your face is all scrawny and pinched. But if you’re a little meatier, your face and boobs look great, but your behind is too fluffy? Back boobs can help you look good coming AND going! Not that you’re old. Just something to think about, for when you’re old.

  176. Now you just need to work on thunder thighs!

  178. I was walking behind a woman blessed with back boobs this past weekend and it looked as if she had back nipples…and it was cold in the building. I couldn’t take my eyes away, and unfortunately my phone has a terrible camera otherwise you would be receiving the photo now.

  179. I, also, am changing my general all-purpose answer to “Time and enchiladas”. My old general all-purpose answer was “Sometimes ‘y’ and ‘w'”.

    I now feel deprived that even though I’m on the far side of 60, I still have no back boobage (except for shoulder blades). I am, however, developing some very nice tricep flesh flags to wave when I wave.

  180. My husband actually had a sort of finger cancer. He had to have a tumor removed. Not only did he have finger cancer, but more embarrassingly it was a type that usually only babies and pregnant ladies get.

    Christina recently posted Office Curtains.

  181. Actually, I’ve had a small, annoying pain in my thumb all day today. I’m 99% sure it is either finger cancer or a tiny parasite eating the bone. So there. I’ll update you if I lose the finger – good thing I have two thumbs and the space bar is long.

  182. Very nice, indeed. Don’t forget about budding thigh cleavage– in the right light and position you could be gunning for two more “boobs.”

  183. You might want to add a disclaimer line underneath the Two More Inches title if you want to avoid attracting males with insecure relationships to their junk. Just a suggestion.

    Melissa recently posted Revolutionary Flight.

  184. Damn, I only get three boobs on account of stupid-ass cancer stealing one and making me use my back fat boob to replace it. Oh well, I’ll still totally rock the triple boob look. ;0)

  185. True fact: one of my relatives was involved in a malpractice lawsuit where a patient got middle finger cancer and his whole middle finger had to be amputated and now he can’t flip people off.
    Moral of the story: beware finger cancer, or else you may wind up tragically unable to give people the double deuce.

  186. Props to Maile for having sexy elbows – that’s a hard area to rock once you’re over 40 (just a little FYI).

  187. OMG I did have a finger tumor as a teenager! My finger grew this huge tumor, it looked like it was pregnant. I had to have it removed. The surgery was way cool. They wrapped my arm up in bandages until all the blood drained out and then I watched as they took the tumor out. It was pretty cool. But actually I didn’t look after I lost feeling in my arm, I just looked at the wall with the little window on it. I was a wussy teenager. Luckily it was not cancer. The scar on my left pointer finger is seriously how I tell my right from left. I went 16 yrs without being able to do that. And this post reminded me of that period of time. Which is awesome because I got to totally gross people out with my finger tumor. Thanks! :)

  188. My ex boyfriend’s sister got back cancer. When he told me I was all “Dude, we aren’t dating anymore. You don’t have to make up lies about why we can’t hangout.” And he was all “She has fucking back cancer, you heartless cunt!” Then I was like “Oh. That sucks. My bad.”

  189. I would also shop there. And if back boobs are getting sexy, I’ll be the sexiest bitch EVER. Plus, if enchiladas make it better, that’s a bonus. Of course, I’d have to move back to Texas, because I haven’t eaten a decent enchilada since I moved away from there.

  190. Yummm…enchiladas….

    Of course, all I could think of while reading that post, other than my awesome enchiladas, was the fact that Captain Kirk ALWAYS fucked the green bitch with the three boobs.

    Stop laughing. I’m weird. Suck it. LOL

    Shan @ Last Shreds Of Sanity recently posted Is Your Teen Addicted To Porn?.

  191. I hate to rain on your parade (and I DO enjoy your blog) but having back fat = welcome to obesity. And as well, MANY studies have correlated obesity levels DIRECTLY to cancer, all types: brain, bone, breast, blood, bladder, colon, the whole spectrum. Start splitting those enchiladas with your mate, and split a salad, too.

    And on a side note, if ” All of the clothes would have two more inches of sleeve, chest and hem.” is true, maybe it’s time to realize you’re actually a size or two larger than you’re currently wearing.

  192. Enchiliadas = sexier? LOL thanks for the laugh ;) I think I’ll go eat some. And then go for a 3 mile run!
