New York Magazine's The Cut recently asked 57 New York women, aged between 17 and 72, to draw their own boobs or write a sentence explaining how they feel about them. The mini-project aims to explore the complicated relationship women have with beauty standards and the "efforts required to meet them."
"In cafés and bars, on playground benches and on the way to work, women laughed when they heard the question, disparaged their drawing abilities, and gave it a shot," says The Cut. "We heard stories of breast cancer, breastfeeding, and what it’s like to become a double D in elementary school. Women drew their scars, big nipples, or barely there boobs. They offered advice, wrote what they love about themselves or why they wished for something else. Big, small, or somewhere in between, there were a few instances of eh and a good number of they're perfect!"
