About me & this blog

Hi. My name in this blog is Hiromi Katahaba, and I have an inverted triangle body shape (or more closer, a "goblet body".) Thus the Japanese name "Katahaba Hiromi." (The Japanese "Katahaba hiroi" means "the shoulder frame is wide.") Haha.

I was brought up in a laid back country, and people around me had bigger body frames than me. I didn't really care about my body image, and people thought me as the sweet, petite girl.

Coming back to Japan made me super-self-conscious about my body. People here are so short, thin and small-framed. I was the BIG GIRL. I wasn't used to that. And regular bra stores in Japan cater women who have breasts up to UK F/FF cups. That was a real shock to me. But hey! I survived.

Thanks to many bloggers out there. Positive body image blogs, busty women's blogs and everything else have help me accept who I am, and now I actually like how I look.

Most of my articles in this blog will be written in Japanese. That's because in Japan, there are limited resources about proper bra-fitting and size acceptance. Some articles will be written in English (especially stuffs that I think aren't included in other English blogs.)

I am still recovering from an illness, but I will try to give as much info as possible.

Thank you for reaching this blog.
I hope it would be somewhat entertaining/useful to you.

xxx Hiromi
