Living With Big Boobs
I know you’re thinking, Is she serious right now? This is a topic I didn’t have to do any research on and purely for fun. I haven’t had big boobs all my life. After having my second child they just appeared (true story) and naturally, being a little off I was convinced something was wrong. I went to the doctor and explained to him that surely I must have tumors or something because you don’t go from a low b to a high d overnight?
After he had a good laugh, he explained that this can happen after childbirth and is completely normal while trying not to shoot me the wtf look again. So yet another gift from my children(bless their hearts). I won’t lie and say I would ever go back because they look amazing, but it does come with its own set of problems . Let’s explore them and my solutions. Maybe you can relate.
A Real Attention Magnet
People are always looking. That isn’t bragging its just a fact. While you realize that is going to happen and truth is, we love attention but it gets to be a little much at times. People will actually talk to them and I am constantly wanting to shout, Look Up!!!
Maybe it is thought because we show cleavage we want attention. When you have big boobs, there is always cleavage. I could be covered up to my neck and you would still know that they are big.
Exercising With Big Boobs
Big boobs and exercise is a challenge. I used to go to a gym and found I had to be really careful about what I wore. Running outside or on a Treadmill encouraged the “bounce” which not only made people look, it could be really painful as well.
I tried wearing a super tight sports bra and even more than one but that was super sweaty. Finally, they started making good ones with padding and lift to them. Invest in a good sports bra, it is worth the money.
Forget Ever Sleeping On Your Stomach
Laying or sleeping on your stomach is impossible. I used to always do this so it made me feel some kind of way. What I do is sleep half on my side which I know isn’t really good for your back.
The beach can be challenging, we all want to flip over right? The only way I can is with big boobs up, leaning on my arms. Even getting a massage was difficult but I powered through, I’m not that crazy.
Are You Sure That’s A Large?
Finally, my biggest problem in having big boobs is clothes!
The Clothing Industry has made it impossible for women with big boobs. Let’s start with bras. If your top heavy and want cute bras, forget it. We need more support and push-up bras don’t work for us, most of our boobage will fall out over the top which looks horrid in clothes.
If you, like me have big boobs I suggest getting measured to ensure you are wearing the right size. Buy quality bras, making sure you have a thicker band across your back and thicker straps, we need more support.
Finding clothes to fit can be challenging. Larges aren’t really large anymore and plus size clothes, even tops are just too full figured.
Dresses are impossible because what fits the bottom doesn’t fit the top. One suggestion is Halter Dresses. Just forget Strapless Dresses.
Some good news is Bathing Suit separates. You can now buy pieces separately which really helps. In the past buying a suit if you have big boobs was a treasure hunt. I will be honest in saying at one point I was wearing shorts and a Sports Bra.
So these have been a few of my challenges. There are challenges for women no matter their size. Hope, you enjoyed it, learned something and maybe giggled a little.
