Short term, you could probably get away with [covering your breasts during sex]. Long term, no way â€“ and you shouldnâ€™t try.
Look, I donâ€™t know what your boobs are like, but any (decent) guy who might be disappointed by them will be more disappointed by your crippling self-doubt. You donâ€™t have to â€ślearn to love them,â€ť but you do have to learn to accept that none of us have perfect bodies â€“ not even supermodels. Grown-up guys (aka â€śmenâ€ť) donâ€™t expect perfection. And if they love you for you, theyâ€™ll love your boobs, however imperfect they may be (and I neither confirm nor deny that theyâ€™re imperfect!).
All that said, you have no obligation to lead with them on night one; and when the time comes take a moment to have a talk with your lover first and tell him youâ€™re insecure about your breasts. A good one will pull through.
Finally, being in a secure relationship is all about being vulnerable. My partner knows all my warts, even the ones that I can barely admit to myself. It feels good when you get there â€“ trust me.
