My question is about breast hugging.
Recently I had reconstruction on both of my breasts following mastectomies. Prior to the operations I was a very physical and hugging type of person. Like a bear, I warmly responded to practically everyone with outstretched arms.
Now I’m afraid to hug people because my reconstructed breasts are too firm. Even my husband and kids tease me. I’m wondering how to use body language to show people that I wanna’ hug, but leave my breasts out of it?
How about the one arm hug? Let’s not make this just about breast hugging. The left-arm or right-arm hug could be useful a solution.
Take charge, the left-armed hug could be useful. Depending upon the height of the person who is approaching you for a hug, have a side-by-side hug. With your right arm reaching under their left armpit going around his back to hug the side under the right armpit for a hand hug on his side; or if you’re taller, wrap your arm around their neck and hold their shoulder with the palm of your hand.
By taking control you can stand side-by-side keeping the person at a distance from your breasts but they can still feel the warmth of your arm and hand holding their body. With practice, it will become your new signature hug.
