MaryW and I have been chatting and we both agreed that a new thread was needed that covers the difficulties extremely large breasted women have with just normal daily living. Everyday normal activities sometime become almost impossible to accomplish. We wanted this thread to teach others about what living is really like for someone with VBH or just simply extremely oversized breasts. This is not meant to be a thread for “comic relief” or for smaller breasted women to complain about small breasts. It is only meant to provide to all the other members and guests the difficulties with daily living.

So if you are an extremely busty gal that would like to share some of your daily routines that are different than the norm or would like to share your experiences and difficulties with normal daily living, feel free to add a post. Mary will be posting some of her daily challenges also. I know there are other members that have VBH that would like to tell their war stories but are too embarrassed or shy to bring them out in the open. This is an invitation to express yourself. I will be posting some of my daily issues also.

We are not talking about the stares and comments we receive but things you do or can’t do because of your breast size. Things that the normal woman wouldn’t even dream about occurring but happens to us almost every day are the issues Mary and I would like to see in this thread. Then others will have a better understanding and appreciation for their own bodies.

Ok, I guess I will go first.

One of the problems that I have occurs in the middle of the night when I am trying to get a good night’s sleep. If I should toss or turn while sleeping, I will more than likely wake up because my breasts have moved around. Sometimes they roll off of my chest and crash onto the mattress. Sometimes I wake my husband up due to one of them flopping onto him. I’m sure most of you have wakened up every now and then because your leg or arm has fallen asleep due to poor circulation. This happens to my arm every time my breast lies on my arm for a long period of time. I cannot sleep on my back or my stomach. My breasts weigh too much for sleeping on my back and I have never felt comfortable sleeping on my stomach. I prefer to sleep in a fetal position on my side with my breasts laid out in front of me. I might get a good night’s sleep 3 out of the seven nights of the week. Most women never would even think that sleeping would be a problem.

I find the sleep thing hard too. In the winter I wear a sports bra to bed. In the summer, I'm not sure that the banging boobs is any worse than being too hot from the sports bra. The sports bra helps with turning over. My breasts kind of crash around if I don't wear the sports bra. It hurts somtimes, but other times is just mildly uncomfortable. In summer I put hand towels under them.

I still cannot think of a reduction. Same as I cannot think of the myopia eye surgery. I'm just a natural girl living with what I was given, and what my mother and grandmother had before me.

I have worn a leisure bra to bed from time to time and it does help restrain the movement but I prefer sleeping without a bra. Also there is too much weight then resting on my chest if I should lay flat on my back when wearing a bra. This is just my preference. Each of us has our own way to adjust our sleeping arrangements so we can feel comfortable.

I hope I'm not imposing, but I have a question. Do you find it difficult to exercise (I imagine it must be quite a challenge)? If you're not able to exercise or perhaps be as active as most ladies would, are there any health challenges associated with that?

No, you are never imposing. This thread is for all women. It is mainly to inform others about the daily issues that some women encounter in their daily lives. Every woman would have to answer this question for herself. I exercise daily. I need to exercise regularly to prevent lower back, shoulder and neck discomfort. I do not jog or run but I walk at least 2 miles a day. I perform stretching exercises and I also do some weight training to keep myself physically fit. Although I do have that typical middle-age spread going. If I start slacking off for a few weeks, I will eventually begin to feel it in my lower back. I lead an active lifestyle but I do not participate in high-impact type sports. I stopped that type of activity years ago when I was much younger. Every woman whether she is large or small needs to be physically active with regular exercise.

I'm just marginally busty and even then my breasts get in the way of normal everyday activities. I cannot imagine what it would be like if these difficulties were intensified, as must be the case with extremely busty women.

* Insides of arms rub against breasts when brushing teeth.
* Difficulty tying shoe laces.
* Maneuvering around people and physical objects (walls, cupboards).
* When reading while lying in bed, pages rub against breasts.
* Positioning bag straps or any kind of shoulder strap.
* Always being on the alert for food spills.

Many posts have dealt with the difficulty of finding clothing and bras in larger cup sizes, so I won't go into that yet again.

Dina & I both felt that this thread was long overdue. Frankly, we're fed up of hearing small-breasted women whingeing on about being small & I'm sure that the guys here are well-acquainted with the fun aspects of large breasts but you don't ever think about what it's like for we women who have to carry them around all day. So that's the purpose of this thread - for the women here who have large breasts to share with all of us the daily problems of being over-endowed.

OK, this is my (first) contribution. I can certainly relate to Dina's post about problems sleeping. Being larger, it's even more of a problem for me. Sleeping on my front is out of the question & sleeping on my back is uncomfortable. My breasts weigh over 20lbs each & if I lay on my back, they flop each side of my body & it hurts having that much weight pulling on my skin. The only sleeping position I can adopt is laying on my side with my breasts next to me & I have to arrange them so they're sort of next to each other, if you follow what I mean. I usually have a couple of extra pillows for them to rest on. Of course, as soon as I turn in bed, I wake myself up So I have rather fitful sleep.

As Citrine said, the main problem of large breasts is that they just get in the way. My breasts are so big now, that they pretty much prevent me from doing most things below the waist. I can't shave my legs or cut my toenails because 'the girls' are in the way. I wear slip-on shoes but when I dress for school I have to put my socks on before my bra

I'll stop here for the moment & let some other women post their views. I know there are a lot of other busty ladies here, so please share your experiences with us.

I think this is a really good thread. These forums really need some new threads. People keep posting in the same old threads and we need some new discussion topics. I hope that all you busty women here will post in this thread and tell us your stories and experiences.

I probably don't really qualify to post in this thread but even I can identify with the points that Citrine made in her post and I'm sure a lot of other women here can too.

Someone asked about exercise earlier in this thread. When you have large, heavy breasts it's important to exercise. I used to get bad lower-back pains. My gym teacher at school has worked out a special exercise programme for me to strengthen my back, leg & arm muscles & it's really helping

Well I'm glad you ladies are able to get the exercise you need It sounds like there is a way to deal with back pains after all, so I'm glad you all have some ways of minimizing the physical discomfort (though I do recognize that it doesnt solve all of your problems).

I'd imagine that cooking would be hard, too. You'd have to stand back and extend your arms to stir something in a pot or saucepan. This would be especially unwieldy if you couldn't peer into the saucepan to see whether you are getting everything into the mix and not leaving bits and pieces on the side getting burnt.

There is a problem I have that probably only affects girls with VBH. I have over 40lbs of breasts & they not only have weight but also mass and therefore inertia (I'm studying Physics for A-level ). In simple words, it's like pushing a supermarket trolley. When you want to turn a corner, it wants to carry on going forwards. Obviously it's not that bad with my bust, but you get the idea.

What I really don't like are cars. Especially little cars. It's hard to get in. Inside, I feel crushed. And don't tell me about the seat-belt. That can only have been a man's invention.

What really bother me is that I can't pass my driver's license

Just in case you don't know about this already, I've found the following paragraph at this UK website:
http://www.direct.gov.uk/Motoring/OwningAVehicle/AdviceOnKeepingYou...

"Very few drivers or passengers should not wear a seat belt. However, one reason for not doing so may be on medical grounds. If you think you should not wear a seat belt on medical grounds, please consult your doctor. He or she will decide and, if warranted will issue you a formal ‘Certificate of Exemption from Compulsory Seat Belt Wearing’. This must be produced if the police ask you for it."

I don't know what the medical criteria are for issuing ‘Certificate of Exemption from Compulsory Seat Belt Wearing’, but it seems to me that it may be warranted for women/girls with exceptionally large breasts.

I guess there's similar legal provision in other countries too.

Cooking isn’t that bad. Remember, we didn’t just wake up one morning and our breasts were there. It took time to get this size so most of us gradually learned and adapted to how our bodies were growing. It is similar to how tall people adapt to their height. They just didn’t wake up and they were 3 feet taller. Anyway, cooking and other chores can be a challenge at times but not impossible. I stand back a little farther from the stove than the average person would and have to reach a little farther. I am more likely to splash something on my top so I wear an apron a lot. When stirring a pot, yes, my arms bump into my boobs and they start their wiggling back and forth with the rhythm of my arm motion. But I have been used to this sort of thing for over 20 years. While washing dishes, the front of my top will always get wet but it doesn’t prevent me from performing any of those chores.

Well, I guess I should chime in too...I can't get a good nights sleep. I can't run, I can't wear a lot of things due to being so big on top and small on the bottom. It really *****...I hate listening to the smaller women complain...and I can NOT for the life of me figure out why some women PAY for this nightmare.

I hate listening to them whine also but I can understand some of the smaller women wanting to get implants to look more proportional. But these women are only talking a couple of cup sizes larger than they are now. None of them would want to increase 10, 12, 15 or more cup sizes.

Seatbelts are one of my all time pet peeves. The lap portion is ok but that shoulder strap presses in on my tops something fierce. Sometimes my blouse buttons become unfastened from that strap pressing against my chest.

It’s the simple things that sometime require extra thought or modification to what would be a simple thoughtless process. This morning I was topless/braless while brushing my teeth in the bathroom. I had to be careful when leaning over the sink to make sure before spitting out the toothpaste, that my breasts were not caught in the sink bowl. My breasts rest just about countertop level when standing in front of the mirror and sink. If I lean over the sink, without stepping back first, my breasts will have a tendency to slide off the countertop and into the sink bowl. I have had to wipe toothpaste off my breasts a few times when I’m in a hurry and running late or I have other things on my mind.

I've not had that problem - my breasts are too big to fit in the washbasin. If I'm braless I have to walk quite slowly or 'the girls' start moving about too much. Walking down stairs braless is something I DEFINITELY have to do carefully. When that much mass starts swaying about.............

I hope this isn't a stupid question, but hasn't anyone of you thought about breast reduction? Maybe it just takes some getting used to, but I don’t think I could live with breasts that are that big. Of course I haven’t tried, but I don’t know… It just seems that there are so many problems…

A breast reduction is major surgery. The bigger you are, the more invasive the surgery will be. I don't want someone taking a blade to my breasts

I have thought about it several times. It is a major surgery. One doctor told me at my size to get down to a large D cup my operation would be similar to a breast amputation. That alone frightened me away. Without going into too many details, I would loose total sensitivity in my nipples and most of the feeling in my breasts.

At the time I was getting massively large I was pregnant and I did breastfeed. After a while, I just got used to being big. I thought about it and investigated it along with my husband who has been there for me all this time. I decided that I did not want to go under the knife at that time or the several times later when this subject would come up. Maybe some day I will need the surgery for medical reasons. But for now, I have no problem getting around physically. I exercise regularly and I am in excellent health.

I understand everyone’s concerns and it does make sense to just get them chopped off but it isn’t that easy when physically there is nothing else wrong. Complications can occur with any surgery. I do not wish to loose my feeling in my nipples and as long as I can carry the weight with no back discomfort, I will remain a whole woman with all the extras. This is what God and Mother Nature gave me and I am coping but I am not struggling.

This thread is not a complaint thread that Mary and I created but more of an informative thread to let others know what the larger women go though on a daily basis. I am just a little disappointed that other women have not stepped up to the plate and explain some of their daily living issues. I’m glad a few women have mentioned a few issues. There have been comments in the various threads where women say they want to have very large breasts. Some only want to be pleasantly large. But others seem to want the gigantic breasts. Mary and I thought a thread like this would enlighten these women to the real world of large breasts. Neither Mary nor I are complaining about our lives here in this thread. We simply wanted to teach the others about life with huge breasts.

****** Hi i for myself consider a surgery to think about that theme is not new for me,but i havent had idea about that a surgerey in your size is so much diffrent then in a dd cup or a bit more.Thanks that you explain this very good.If you be only in my size and hear about the big girls ,your first idea is why the dont have a surgery ? but now i understand that it is very diffrent if you be that huge.+++++

***** This was one thing i thought about why the have made this thread now i know and maybe some others are to shy to post in this liga .I for myself read this thread with a lot of respect .So maybe here will be a girl share her expierence with huge fake boobs and how is the live if you be from one day to the next that huge.And maybe here come some other expireince from other girls which have had a explantation or have had a surgery from huge boobs to a normal size.*******

Sometimes things aren't just big enough. There is an auditorium at my universtiy where there are chairs with a tray you can put in front of you. But I can't put it in front of me because of my breasts. Luckily there is a normal table in a side of the room, so I can write on it.

I also had a lot of difficulty to balance after my spurt. Still now I have some in certain occasions. For example in the underground when it brakes or accelerates or turns and I stand.

Sometimes things aren't just big enough. There is an auditorium at my universtiy where there are chairs with a tray you can put in front of you. But I can't put it in front of me because of my breasts. Luckily there is a normal table in a side of the room, so I can write on it.

I also had a lot of difficulty to balance after my spurt. Still now I have some in certain occasions. For example in the underground when it brakes or accelerates or turns and I stand.


Speaking of trays, I think I mentioned this in another thread; those airplane seat trays are useless. Most times I either can’t get it down past my boobs or I hang over half the tray. I will either keep the tray up or bring it down if I can and just keep it folded in half.

We have those seats with the trays at work in our auditorium also. I can’t get the tray past my bust either.

Then there is a few of the smaller restaurant booths. Trying to squeeze into the tight table-to-bench spacing is almost impossible with a few of them. Most I can fit into but there are a few where my boobs are smashed into the table edge and I drag the tablecloth with me as I slide in.

I've only been on planes once since I got really big & it was awful. It was only a 2-hour flight each time but I was really glad when it was over. I was pretty much trapped in my seat unable to do anything.

It's even worse when you're out with friends or something, and your breasts lay on top of the table, taking up valuable table space. Furthermore, them being placed ontop of the table just seems to put them on proud display for everyone. And then you get your plate, and you have place it out further from you but you can't do that because your friend is sitting across from you and has a plate there too. It's awfully frustrating.

I also have to share the sentiments expressed about planes and seatback trays. Almost as bad are the bathrooms on the flight.

One problem I've had is shopping for formal business attire. There are a lot of options for all sorts of clothing to compensate for my peculiar figure (I'm pretty short and thin, except in the chest, even though I'm not nearly as big as many of the women posting here). But with suit jackets especially, which I'm really fond of, I have trouble of not looking like I'm intentionally trying to play up my bust.

I know of plenty of specialty bra and lingerie shops in the area, but it's the business dress that really gets me.

I have my business suit jackets tailored to fit my figure. I could never just wear one of the racks. They let it out here and take it in there to fit my bust. It cost more for these special alterations but it does make me look less top heavy and still be very stylish.

I know that you and Mary didn’t make this thread to complain

I guess that I was just curious to why you hadn’t chosen a breast reduction, since this is probably the first thing a lot of people would think about when they hear the size of your breasts and the problems you have.


I can’t imagine how it is not to be able to sleep on my stomach, to run or to go into the local shop and be able to buy some nice underwear.
I am glad that you have made this thread, it gives a good picture of what you go through.

One of the reasons that Dina & I wanted this thread was to educate people & make them aware of some of the issues associated with having big breasts. Things that maybe they'd never even considered.

I hate it when I get colds & stuff. When you have really big breasts, coughing & sneezing are a whole different experience!

Hi, sorry I haven't posted in this subject yet, haven't been on in a while. Many of the things Dina and Mary have said I can also relate with. I exercise to keep fit and healthy and I wouldn't get a reduction beacause my breasts are a part of me, they're who I am and I'm deathly scared of having any kind of surgery. I have to agree that sleeping is difficult, I went out and got a foam bed (no springs) and I still wake myself up if I move too much. I'd also like to speak about driving as well. I am short and my legs are one of the main reasons, I have short legs and when I drive I have to pull the seat way up to touch the pedals. If I am wearing a bra my breasts are mashed against the steering wheel and would interfere with my driving, so I cannot wear a bra while i'm driving. My breasts also restrict quite a bit of my arm movement, and the seat belt just kills me, ya know I have to reach back to get it and attempt to reach over my chest, switch hands and find that dang clip in thing and make sure I have enough slack. I'm always afraid that I might get into an accident because I was not able to control the car properly or my seatbelt is not locked in. ugghhh I hate driving.

P.S. To reaffirm what Dina was talking about, all the small-breasted women seeking large enhancments, you need to know that it not as glamorous as you would make it out to be. Every womens' body can be made the best for her naturally with exercise and nutrition. A womens' courage and confidence should not begin and end with just her breasts.

It seems many women have issues with fitting comfortably in the driver’s seat. Whether it’s the length required to reach the peddles or the height required to see over the steering wheel or the ceiling height for tall women, it just seems that the driver’s seat is just not made to accommodate everyone. Now add on top of the other issues, a protruding bust that may interfere with the steering wheel. I can drive a car without much trouble but my breasts are just about touching the steering wheel when I’m wearing a bra. I am a little worried what might happen if God forbid, I should have an accident and the airbag is deployed. I think it will expand upward towards my face but if it should deploy straight out horizontally, I’m in big trouble. If I am braless and I’m driving my breast are resting on my lap and the bottom of the steering wheel has a little clearance. But at least the airbag will have more room to deploy. With my hands positioned at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock on the steering, my arms are bumping into my boobs. I can steer with no problems and I have no problem seeing all the instruments on the dashboard.

I know that we've gone over the attention factor again and again in these forums. However, there's something I'd like to point out to those of you who may be contemplating getting huge implants. Some of you who may have read my posts may ask who am I to bring this up, as I don't belong to the extremely busty category. But being just marginally busty, I experience this in a less intense way, so I think I'm not totally unqualified to talk about it.

I guess the women who are naturally extremely busty somehow learn to cope with the emotional dimensions of the issue, in addition to the physical ones. I'm not saying this is easy by any means, but they have had the advantage (however you may think of it) of having a period of time in which to learn some coping mechanisms.

If you have a very prominent bust, it very often becomes a major focus of people's attention. You will find people fixated on your breasts when you are having a really bad day, when you are worried sick about your bills, when you have just gotten the news that someone dear to you has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, when someone close to you has died and maybe at the funeral itself. The attention will be relentless. Before opting for augmentation surgery, ask yourself whether you have the emotional resources to deal with it.

Citrine has brought up a very good point. Women like me who are extremely well endowed through Mother Nature have had time to adjust, cope and find solutions to our size. Whether we have gotten this way over many months or many years we have learned to somehow live a somewhat (normal) life. For those women that are opting for breast augmentation, and I’m not referring to the women that are only going for a slight enlargement to enhance their figures, but the ones that really want to be huge, I am suggesting you think twice about it. Or get a very large shirt and a very large cup bra. Put 2 bowling balls inside the bra, wear it and spend a weekend doing your normal daily chores and activities that you would on a weekend. This would give you an idea what it is like. A friend of mine tried it on a Saturday morning and by noon she had given up. With breast augmentation, it is instantaneous huge boobs. However, skin can only stretch so far at one time so to get to the super huge sizes, it would take several operations which would be performed over a lengthy time period also. So I guess you would have some time to adjust. But even going from a “B” cup to a “DD” would require time to adjust.

That's a very good point. A question I'm often asked is 'how do you cope with such big & heavy breasts?'. My answer is that they didn't get this big overnight. It's taken a few years & each time they've grown, I've adjusted to the extra size & weight.

I go along with all the other posts about cars. I don't think there is any way I'll be able to drive a car . My bust gets in the way of the steering wheel. If I put the seat back far enough to move my boobs away from the wheel, my feet don't reach the pedals. My boobs are too big & my legs are too short!

What a good idea for people with relatively short legs and/or very large breasts.

'Pegalverlängerung' sort of translates to 'pedal lengthener' but that didn't work on Google. So, I tried 'pedal extender', which worked.

I found this website: http://www.pedalextenders.com. If you click 'Vehicles' and then choose your favorite car, such as the nice Audi, you can see more photographs of pedal lengtheners. I think any good mecahnic would be able to fit these to a standard car.

Hi, everyone. This has been really fascinating to read! I hadn't posted about my experiences sooner because, to be honest, I am so used to dealing with my large breasts on a daily basis that I'm hardly conscious of it anymore. I instinctively size up restaurant booths before choosing a seat, judge passing distance between aisles, even occasionally coordinate my clothing choices with what'll be on the menu that day--I'd never wear a white top when I know I'll be eating pasta, that's just asking for trouble with my sizeable continental shelf there to catch all the spills! Aside from sleeping and showering, I'm never braless--especially if I'm doing lots of housework. I've strained my back a couple of times because I misjudged the "swing" weight and ended up in the chiropractor's office because of it.

Yeah, I could get a reduction, but this is me. Ultimately, I like my breasts much more often than I'm annoyed by them getting in the way of things. One thing that would make me happier is if that stupid Tide pen were better at getting out tomato sauce stains.

Mary and I were discussing this very thing. We have become so used to living this way that it was difficult coming up with daily activities that are different or unusual to the average women. There are many more but it does take time and thought to come up with all of them. That is one reason why we opened this up to all the busty girls to share their experiences.
Cleaning the bathroom tub is a challenge. Leaning over that thing while washing the sides is murder on my breasts, bra or braless.

Clorox has one of those bleach pens that works pretty well on the white blouses.

Have you tried Oxyclean stain remover? It works on pretty much any stain and any fabric.

Thanks, citrine--I have individually wrapped oxy-wipes that I keep in my purse, car, office and home so I'm covered for just about any occasion. The next step would be bibs, but I refuse to go that far--although I do have a friend who's been known to tuck her napkin in her blouse at restaurants.

As said before, there are many simple things that become more complicated. Everything you do and you have to bend over to do it is harder. For exemple, making my bed with my breasts hanging in front of me isn't easy.
And sometimes, things and places aren't made for big girls. The showers are for exemple always quite small.

I will agree that most activities that are performed in front of my chest are more difficult to accomplish or they require some re-engineering of a particular task in order to perform these activities efficiently. Sometimes I will turn to my side when I need to pick some small object up off the floor. I can see it better than just bending over straight in front of me. I turn to the side and then bend at the knees or lean over to reach down for the object. I have a better line of sight to the object from turning to the side to look for the object. I’m sure many of the other busty girls are familiar with this procedure.

Washing any object can be a challenge. Whether it is windows, walls, or the car, I can guarantee my boobs will get in the way and my shirt will end up getting wet.

Making the bed in the morning isn’t that difficult for me but my arms do bang into my boobs a lot with that task. Folding laundry has a similar affect on my boobs. However it is nice to be able to pull several items out of the dryer at once and just lay them across my chest while I fold another piece of clothing. When wearing a bra, my protruding bust acts like a portable table top to set additional clothing on while I fold laundry.

I somehow just recently became aware of this thread. My boyfriend is actually the one who pointed it out to me. lol Anyway, I think this thread was way overdue and I very much agree that sometimes this forum can be over run with smaller breasted women complaining and wishing they had huge boobs but to some people huge would be a D cup or sometimes even a C. A lot of people don't even know that bras over a DD even exist or at least that is what I feel like sometimes. My boobs aren't much compared to some of the other women on this forum but I do find myself in some of the same situations and more so the more my boobs seem to grow which has been quite a bit lately. But it's like Mary said earlier, they didn't just appear overnight. There are some things that I just end up doing to cope that I sometimes don't even realize that I do them until maybe someone else points it out. This has been a long time ago but my mom pointed out that I put my shirt under my boobs when I don't have a bra on. It's just that once they started getting bigger I just started doing that because they started to droop a bit more and became a bit sweatier and it would bother me to have them sort of stick to me. I know you don't have to be that big breasted to have that happen but that is just one of those things that I started doing because of my growth that I didn't really notice until someone pointed it out to me. I think that when somone with smaller boobs looks at a woman with larger boobs she must think that she is always trying to come up with ways to cope and in a way that is true but I think there are a lot of things done unintentionally or without us really realizing it because for the most part we do have a semi gradual growth and so we have time to adapt where as if I just took my boobs and put them on a flat chested woman she wouldn't have any idea where to begin.

Sorry for my long post and rambling.

Hi I'm joining late, as ever! Been away a while and just got back online. Hi Mary!

For me, I can deal with comments, attention etc. I'm not even THAT big that it's impossible to find bras or shirts or anything. For me personally, it's the slow, nagging back ache that seems to develop over the day. It's not even that sore, but it s annoying and I find myself trying to plan an evening out around places to sit down - pubs, cinemas etc.

And yes... I saw a doctor back in January, and I'm wating for an appontment for a BR consult.

Good wishes from me, too. Breast reduction is the only form of elective surgery I've considered (as a future possibility - in case I grow bigger than a G).

Same here Dina. Right now it's not so hard to manage these things but I hope they don't get too out of control where my only option is surgery. My mom mentioned it to me but the thought really scares me.

I’m a very strong woman emotionally but this type of surgery has me scared. I have been exercising to keep my back strong and so far I’m managing to support my boobs without any discomfort.

I'm a big wimp when it comes to anything like that. The closest I've come to surgery is a root canal and I'd like to keep it that way as long as I can. My biggest concern is when I have children. My mom went from barely having boobs to a C cup so that was a major change for her. I'm an F cup now but I don't see me in them for long since they seem to be getting a bit tight. I'm almost afraid to have kids. I know not everyone grows during pregnancy but doesn't genetics have something to do with it? Women in my family seem to sprout up when they have kids so I assume there's a good chance that will happen with me as well.

Amanda, every woman is different when it comes to our boobs and how they develop as we grow up and when we become pregnant. Genetics has a lot to do with our development process. As I have mentioned in other threads, my whole family has very strong genes when it comes to breast development. I was an F cup before I became pregnant and by the time I was full term with my first child, I had increased to a J cup. I gained 4 cup sizes. When my sister had her first child, she gained 2 cup sizes. My mom told me she gained one cup size when she had me. I gained 2 additional cup sizes with my second child. Some women hardly gain anything. I wouldn’t let the fear of getting even bigger boobs keep you from having children some day. Chances are you will increase at least an additional cup size.

Oh it's definately not going to stop me from having children. A future family is too important to me to give up for well anything. I'm just afraid of actually needing surgery in the future. Although I imagine that I would just cope because after reading the posts in this topic and some others the thought of a few cup sizes bigger doesn't scare me as much as it used to.

I know all too well about the booth situation. Every time Quyn and I go to our favorite Chinese restaurant I have nowhere to put my boobs but on the table. It's not so much a problem when it's us by ourselves because well he's seen my boobs in about every way possible but it's a bit awkward if someone else is joining us.

I can usually judge if the booth is going to be too tight a squeeze and ask for a table. If anyone asks why I just look down at my chest and tell the, "if they're not on the menu, they don't belong on the table."

Sometimes I will quickly scan a restaurant before they ask if we want a table or a booth. I just want to see whether there is enough clearance for sitting at a booth. But then sometimes restaurants really pack the tables close together so it can also be difficult sitting at a table when there isn’t that much room between tables and chairs. It isn’t like having troubles like obese people have it but having an extremely large bust does have its own issues to contend with.

I have the same worry as Amanda, as I tend to put weight on my breasts and upper arms (like my mom). I've decided that any day I get pregnant, I'll have to monitor my weight very carefully so that I hopefully won't grow to anything beyond a G. As I'm only 5'3", I think of G as the max size my body can handle w/o too much discomfort.

I think it would be a very profitable business if a clothing store was started specializing in clothes for overly busty women. I know that there are specialty lingerie stores but we can't just wear are bras out. Well I suppose we could and it might be appreciated by some (especially some men) but I doubt we would be able to get much done during the day.

I too am really frustrated about the lack of formal clothing for busty women. If enough women write to women's clothing companies about this issue and convince them that there's a big (no pun intended) market for these items, maybe they'll take some action.

I’m frustrated also. Most of the time, I have to shop in the full figure specialty stores like Lane Bryant, etc. But these stores are catered for the chubby girls. I’m not a fat woman. And the styles are not that interesting either. When I try on a dress that fits my bust, the shoulders are too large and it has a lot of extra material around the waist. I end up sending a lot of my new outfits to the tailor to be altered in the right places. Some stores will have tailors on hand for customizing but it usually costs more and this is only available in a few stores. I can find some outfits on the rack in some stores but shopping for clothes is usually an adventure with me.

I haven't worn a dress for over 3 years If I found one that fitted around my bust, the rest of it would look like a tent! It pretty much has to be separates when you're really big-busted.

Well, buy a dress that fits your bust, then get a seamstress to tailor the dress to fit the rest of your body. I don't know how much this would all cost, but every girl needs a nice dress! Give it a try.

If I were more into clothing and fashion I would think about opening up that kind of store myself but alas I am not fashion savvy, well not to design anything anyway.

This is something that I have been wondering about - when the manufacturers design clothes what chest size do the think the average small, medium and large women have? Is it a fixed size or does it change from manufacturer to manufacturer?

Trying to find clothes that fit our busts is something that troubles all large breasted women no matter what age we are. From what I have noticed, each manufacturer will be slightly different in what size fits how large of a bust. Large women specialty shops will carry clothes that fit somewhat large cup sizes but not the very large cup sizes. Most of our clothes will require some alteration. Extremely large busted women that are also very large everywhere else might be able to get away with buying the very large full figure outfits without requiring alterations due to their large proportions all over. But women like me who are extremely top heavy and not too large elsewhere will require alterations of some kind.

For some of us, this dilemma starts when we are children. Early developers and girls that develop rather large quickly will have problems finding outfits that fit when the rest of their bodies are still rather small. It just isn’t with bras that women have trouble with but with clothes in general. Some young girls will end up shopping in the adult women’s dept. for their outfits.

It feels like there is always an assumption that busty=fat. I find this assumption comes into play when I'm bra shopping as well. I will find my cup size but only in large band sizes. I will get excited to find an F or DDD (depending on the brand) but all the band sizes will be 40 and above. I'm usually a 36 but sometimes depending on the manufactorer I can make a 38 work but a 40 or even larger is out of the question. I really wish this idea of "well we'll accomodate busty women but they must be fat so let's just make something that looks like a tent for them to wear" would stop. Maybe if more women make a big deal about it, something will be done.

Here in the states it seems that way. In most of the normal department stores and discount centers, you can only find DD and DDD starting in band size 38 through 50. There are pe***e women out there that do need DD, DDD and higher in cup size. In the specialty shops you will find the smaller band sizes with larger cups. I have never been to the UK. Some day I would like to visit there and shop in their stores. But what I have found based on the various UK website shops is just the opposite as far as what is available. Now I know the size charts are different than in the states but I can find DD through J cup sizes in sizes 28 through 40 on the UK online shops. But they seem to end there and do not carry the 42 through 56 band sizes. This is just an observation that I have noticed when searching the various online shops around the world for the extra large cups sizes.

The same is true for Denmark. None of the discount shops have bras with a small band size and large cup-size and every time I see their adds I get upset *lol*. They try to make it sound like it is a miracle when they have bras in DD and E cups, when the reality is that many women need these sizes. Maybe I have said this before, but I used to shop in H&M, where they had a size chart that said: A = small breasts, B = medium breasts, C = large breasts and D = very large breasts. First of all I don't agree with how they categorize breasts and another thing is that they make the assumption that large women have big breasts and small women have small breasts. Last time when I visited the shop they had finally got a new chart, but when I looked at it, the only thing they had for women with a size 30 band was AA cups. I know I shouldn’t be disappointed, but a lot of women don’t have the option to go to a speciality shop, and it is a bit frustrating that they don’t realise that not all women fit into these sizes.

The only store I can walk into and find bras that is reasonably close to me is now Lane Bryant and even that is an hour away. I know there are websites I can go to but I'm always afraid to buy a bra that I can't try on first. Different brands have different size charts and they will fit differently sometimes. It also seems like very few American websites have larger cup sizes that have a variety of choices that are reasonably priced. I'm trying to pay my way through school so I can't really afford to pay $50 or more for a bra especially when I don't seem to stay in the same size for long these days. So I guess this brings me to a question. Does anyone know about currency conversion between the UK and the US? Most of the sites that I find that I like are UK sites but I'm not really sure about the conversion or international shipping.

The currency exchange rate varies from day to day. Some online shops will provide the currency exchange rate in their catalog or on the sales slip before you submit the order. International shipping is another matter but that also can vary. When you fill out an order, all that pricing stuff should be on the order form before you submit the final order. If it doesn’t have it on there, I would cancel the order and send the establishment an email requesting this information.

actually the currency exchange will be done by the credit card company rather than the shop. usually abit less favorable than market value. www.xe.com will give a ball park idea of what it will cost you.

I too have problems sleeping due to big breasts. If my boyfriend turns over, putting his back to my front so that we become like 'spoons' he sometimes steamrollers one! That definately wakes me up.
Sometime when I turn from one side to the other I leave one behind on the mattress! It will follow eventually, then it picks up momentum as it catches me up and thwacks said boyfriend in the face...so I do get my own back eventually!
And.....
Why can't someone invent a bed with a trench in the mattress so that I can drop my breasts in there and sleep on my front??? This is what I create in the sand when I'm sunbathing on my towel on the beach. It is bliss!!!

Sorry to hear that 36G.... My breasts measure 36H and I have no trouble sleeping on my stomach, which is how I sleep all of the time.

I guess I am blessed... my breasts do not effect my sleep at all. Knock on wood!

I don’t sleep on my stomach but rather on my side in a fetal position with my boobs lying out in front of me. However, when I toss and turn during the night my breasts will have a tendency to roll off my chest as I turn to the other side. They will plop on the mattress or if my husband is next to me, they may crash into his chest or back which has woken him up. When this happens, he either tells me to stay on my own side or he gets frisky and neither one of us will fall back asleep for some time.

I would like to ask a question. I know it annoys you when small-breasted women complain and whine that they want huge boobs, but what about women who have medium to large breasts that complain about how difficult it is to deal with them? I am talking about breasts that are a little larger than average; say a D or so. These women hardly have it as tough as you, but I've heard plenty complain about dealing with exercise, buying bras, coping with stares from men and such. Obviously most of you posting in this thread would have worser problems than someone who is only a D cup; they can exercise if they buy a sports bra (I knew a girl shorter than me with DDs who did gymnastics just fine), D cup bras are very easy to find in stores and I doubt a D cup woman would have to cope with as much staring as someone who is a JJ (unless she was an extremely tiny woman short enough to pass for a child). Plus, there are plenty of other problems you've posted which a D cup woman would never have to deal with.

I am talking about breasts that are a little larger than average; say a D or so.


I have similar feelings as Amanda on this question. It would depend on what she was complaining about. Let’s face it. We all have problems and issues that we must deal with. Whether we are extremely large breasted or have hardly any boobs to speak of, the grass always seems to be greener on the other side of the fence. I do get irritated at small breasted women that complain that large breasted women have all the luck. Luck? I don’t think so! We have already discussed many of the reasons why I can feel like I do. Extremely large breasts have many drawbacks. Being large breasted can be a curse if you allow your mind to think this way. Having big breasts also is a blessing which has had many threads also discussed on this issue.
I do get irritated when women with slightly above average breast size or somewhat large breast size complain that they have problems finding bras (D or DD), can’t stand the weight of their breasts; don’t like the comments and stares, etc. They really have no idea what having large breasts are like. To me, a D or DD is an ideal breast size for a curvy body frame. Bras in D or DD are relatively inexpensive and are readily available in most stores. I know everyone’s threshold is different for what they can live with as far as breast weight. But there is a huge difference in the weight between a D or DD breast and a JJ, K, L, M, N, etc. breast size. What are we talking here? Two to five pounds each maximum for a DD size breast? Try ten to twenty five pounds each breast on some of us very large breasted gals. As far as the stares and comments go, we all will get them. Extremely large breasted women will get stares just simply by entering a room.
Some day if I must have a breast reduction, I would love to end up as a D or DD bust size. Gosh, I haven’t been that size since I was 15 years old.

I don’t know. I think I get more irritated with the D or DD women that complain than I do with the “AA” or “A” breasted women that complain about their breasts. I can understand the small breasted women might feel cheated but D or DD breasted women are at an ideal size. Small enough that they don’t have the issues I have but also large enough to fill out all the sexy outfits and have all the curves in the right places.

It doesn't really annoy me when other women complain about the problems they have with any size, even women with small boobs. What annoys me is when a woman complains because she wishes she had big boobs when most of them have no idea what it would be like. Even I don't have some of the problems that some of the other members have so I hope it does not annoy them that I post about my problems. I guess for me it all depends on what the woman is complaining about. If she is a irregular size, whether it be a much larger size or a much smaller size, then it doesn't annoy me at all to hear her complain about how hard it is to find bras. I can related to that, we're just on different ends of the spectrum. But if a woman says something along the lines of "Oh you big busted girls have it so easy. All guys give you attention. Blah Blah Blah" it annoys me because they ass.ume that having big boobs solve all of our problems. And now that I think about it, I guess I would in some cir***stances be upset if a woman who was a D cup complained about her boobs because sometimes I wish I could be a D cup again, but it again has to do with what she is complaining about. Some people use complaining as sort of a compet.tion and if she is doing it in that manner about how she has far worse problems than anyone else then yes I would be annoyed. Something else I think that would annoy me is if she exaggerated her problems. I saw a woman on Dr. Phil awhile ago that said that she couldn't do housework such as fold laundry because her boobs were too big. She has the same size as I do so I was annoyed at the fact that she was using her boobs as an excuse when I know for a fact you can do laundry with F cup boobs.

You can do laundry, work, clean house, garden, etc. with the big sizes. I wouldn't run, do aerobics or ride a horse, that's about all I wouldn't do.

Yes, extremely large breasted women can do all those chores. With some, my breasts do tend to get in the way but I can still perform all of them and get the job done. Any activity that requires extreme bouncing is totally off my agenda. I’m not one that likes a lot of punishment. Light weight aerobic activity can be challenging but I have done some.

yeah i'm a 38H and i'm happy jumping up and down without a bra, i can sleep on my stomach and use them as a pillow. and if my bloke rolls on to one, he's more likely to feel it as he rolls/bounces off than me. if i could find 1/2 dozen comfy bras (1 multiway( backless strapless thing), a push up plunge, a sports and some others that have gone right now!) i'd have no complaints at all.

I don't have that big problems, but still being a 32F does bring me in some awkward situations.

As a “D” my most recent encounter was having to purchase a strapless for a dress my boyfriend bought me to wear at a wedding we attended last weekend.

Now I can’t speak for anyone else with “D Plus” but the weight of my breast and a strapless don’t go together for me. I am forced to wear a long line which is so uncomfortable. While expressing my displeasure at the sales counter the young sales clerk suggested that I buy a strapless self adhesive bra. Well I am game for anything other than having to wear that rib busting long line, so I gave it a try.

To make a long post short, I had problems with perspiration and keeping the bra attached.

I can't wear strapless bras because they don't come in my size. You may be wearing the wrong size (most people are), a band size too big on a normal bra ofen isn't noticable unless you know a lot about bra fitting and/or have very large breasts, but it turns a strapless bra into an unflattering belt. Try a band size down and DD.

I the way strapless bras squash your boobs apart! I've never found a flattering style at all and I am only a 30DD!

It’s been many years since I have been able to wear a strapless bra. I do remember standing up at a wedding about 15 years ago and the dresses that were picked out for the bridesmaids were strapless. The other girls wore strapless bras. I had to wear a custom made corset. It was able to hold everything in place but I was sure glad to get out of that thing at the end of the night.

I hate the way some bras squish my liver / lungs whatever is directly beneath the band. In my experience, strapless have been the worst offenders. So no strapless unless I find a really comfy one. I wish I could clone myself just for the purpose of sending out one clone to try on clothes while I work. Of course most women - whatever their size or shape - complain about not finding well- fitting clothes!

I have just one of those torture (corset) devices in my drawer and I didn't buy it. Wore it once for my boyfriend and for some reason he assumed he could get frisky with me in it.

yes the problem with corsets is that they really have to fit properly to be comfortable and so tend to be expensively made to measure. My problem is that i change size so much that usually they only fit for a few months!

I like corsets as outer/evening wear, but they're no good to me as underwear as already having a much bigger chest-waist ratio than any clothes you can buy without going custom made, a corset exaggerates this further until my body is just a weird shaped bust and a void with a tent over it between there and my hips.

Corsets are not just made so that women can have a more hourglass shape. I also have a naturally large difference in bust to waist ratio but I use my corset when I need to wear a strapless dress. They don’t make strapless bras in my size so a corset is the next best thing. I will say that it does a good job lifting my boobs and supporting them, but it is not that comfortable. It does tend to squish my breasts against my chest and having to wear something like that for more than a couple of hours can be uncomfortable.

I'm sorry I havn;t posted in a long time. havn't had much time to check with the site. I'll try to change that. I can remember chatting with Mary W a along time ago and we related some of our experiences at the time.
As I get older..now in my fifties... the breasts have become more of a nuisance. Always wearing a bra...but I've learned to manage well. Like Mary says...they grow over a long time so we adjust.
I think , for me, walking distances is the most difficult... they have a mind of their own and I sweat alot....so I squish !!! LOL.
I wear different kinds of bras for different tasks...some are more surdy than others...and my bras that croos my back seem to be the best for activity. Anyone else ?

Well, aside from all of the other issues with physical activity, i recently discovered that it's virtually impossible to golf with big boobs. I'd never really golfed before, but yesterday when i went out with a friend, it was pretty embarrassing how directly in the way they were. I wear a 38FF, and I basically could not follow through properly with my swing. Are there other women out there who've had this experience or know of a way around it?

At a 30FF I don't have that many everyday problems as bigger people but I suppose I have had over 15 years to get used to it. Seat belts can be annoying as can getting squashed on a bus because my bum is narrower than my upper half. I'm definitely not built for running or athletics but I can skip with a good sports bra - to be honest I'm not bothered. It's my small back combined with a larger cup that generally causes me problems with finding bras and clothes. I know that I will go up a cup size with about every 12 lb so keeping within certain weights is important to me as those DD-G ranges are what I depend on. My actual measurements are fine so I don't have trouble fitting anywhere like tables. It is the threat of things being difficult if I was bigger that scares me so I do empathise with the long-sufferers on this forum. Strapless bras fall down, plunge bras fall out in the middle & everything is expensive. Lounging about braless is very uncomfortable as is running up the stairs so I just don't do it! Sleeping is difficult - squashing breast tissue or stretching skin means a lot of fidgeting. I am subconsciously waiting for my husband to turn over and squash my nipple The weight of straps and wires digging in can make me irritable. Staring, being presumed to be a bimbo & not being taken seriously are side effects. It's not all bad though - I like having a cleavage, I like my shape, am healthy, feel womanly & my husband says he loves all aspects of my figure

Sleeping isn't really a problem. i do wear a sports bra to bed. the things I have a problem with are simple things. When I sit at a table (going to bars is difficult) my breasts just kinda sit on the table. This gest quite embarrasing. I am growing out of my 36DDD bra by losing weight, but my boobs just seem to keep getting LARGER! I don't know what to do. I am beginning to like my breasts, a lot thanks to Michelle, but it can get embarrassing at the same time!

For me, it is either set them on the table or I must push my chair back further away from the table. But then I have to reach farther at the table. Now when I’m home and braless, they can safely rest them on my lap under the table top and I can sit real close. Has anyone ever dragged the table cloth with you as you left a restaurant booth due to the tight quarters and crushed boobs in those booths? I did and almost took all the dishes and glasses with as I scooted across the bench to get up. Talk about an embarrassing moment.

i have that issue withlosing weight. if i put on weight, i put it on evenly but i tend to lose it from places other than my breasts so they get proportionally bigger. my breasts also do the sitting on the table thing but i've been know to explot that and use them as a pillow for a nap.

That’s another false rumor. The food portions in restaurants seem to be supersized but many restaurants like to crowd as many tables in the place as they can. As far as the food goes, you can probably feed two people with one food order. I am always taking leftovers home with me for a second meal.

I relate to a lot of what I read here, even though at 36GG, I'm not as huge as many who are responding. Still, when thinking of regular "challenges," one is greeting people. At my church, both men and women like to hug each other hello and I have to resort to the "bent from the waist" hug. This way the recipient gets my cheek, arm and shoulder but they're not smashed by my chest. On shorter people (little old ladies) I bend over a LOT.

I never thought about that either. But you are right. The leaning forward and bending at the waist hug style is such a routine for me that I completely forgot about mentioning that issue. The larger a woman’s breasts are the further she leans to complete her hug. When some of my friends get together with me, and it is “hug” time, we both are leaning. It must look strange to some people seeing two grown women bending forward and leaning into each other to hug.

Yes...Hugging is a problem !! haven't thought of that. It's strange. When I was teaching it was inpossible for me to " get close" to my students. I've been comfortable with the way I am for a long time. But boys and somegirls are very shy or uncomfortable about hugging me. I am...out there ( hee hee ! ) and kids...I think once they get to around 12 or so, discover that I'm not just the fat lady...those are breasts. The younger kids don't care...I'm the fuffy soft lady. Ha !! it's amazing...you can tell when the change happens...lot's of red faces. Anyway..when I was " at school" I wore bras that let me hang a bit more so I wasn't out there. If I wore supportive bras I'd have to sit at my desk differently and ofcourse driving the car was out of the question. So... squish em ! God the things we do to try to look normal.

Yes tell me about driving your boobs squished them up against the steering wheel, I had to drive about a 100 miles to go bra shop in a another city I have to wear a supportive bra if I have to drive awhile the thing that get me is those truckdrivers that they can see right down into your car and they stay right beside you or they honk at you about to make me drive off the road some times they get so close. Hugging thats trouble to begain with anyway everyone wants to hug any woman with very large breasts, growing up I had Uncles and cousin always trying to hug me.

hi, im kinda new here, but im glad this thread started. You see, very recently my breasts started to grow, and im kinda scared. Alot of the girls at my school talk bad about me, saying i got implants or stuff beachballs under my shirt. i was so used to doing things the normal way (sleeping, eating, ect.), but over the last year i've really had to reajust. my mom had to take me out to buy all sorts of new clothes - i now sleep shirtless (a year ago i didn't even wear a bra so i sleept with a shirt) but i wake up extra early to put a shirt on before my mom wakes me up. long story short, this last year has easily been the most difficult of my life (which actually hasn't been that long since im only 13)

Many people don’t seem to realize how traumatic it can be for young girls who start to develop very large breasts at an early age. It can affect their entire personality and self esteem when they are humiliated and ridiculed by their peers. I know with me, a few girls that were my friends in school for several years suddenly turned against me when I started to develop. My closest friends however remained loyal and couldn’t believe what some of the kids would say about me or the things that they would do to me. I would come home from school crying a few times from how I was treated. There is no excuse for this hazing treatment by kids but the only explanation that I can come up with now that I’m an adult is that children in grade school are not mature enough to understand when one of their peers suddenly changes into an adult body in such a short time. That person suddenly becomes different or odd to the other children and when someone is different than the norm, they unfortunately become targets for hazing by the more immature kids. One thing you will find is that in a couple of years most of those same kid’s maturity levels will have increased and they will not be so mean anymore. The boys will be looking at you in a different manner and the other girls will have begun to develop themselves and once again you are not so different anymore. There will always be the few jealous girls that you will run into who have a difficult time dealing with the fact that you have much larger breasts than them and possibly you will be more popular with the boys than they will be. Time will tell on this but you are not alone with what you are currently experiencing. Many of us have had to deal with similar situations while growing up.

I don’t understand the shirtless sleeping. You should be able to find larger size sleepwear to accommodate your needs. At least this should stop the need for waking up extra early. You may find that in the winter you will need a warm top on during those cold nights.

Yeah, that is where I also developed rashes when I was going through rapid growth stages also, on the underside of my breast, the part that rubs against my chest wall. I would develop rashes when my bra cups became too small. I don’t know if it was from the wires or if it was from the compression of my boobs in the smaller than required cup size or if it had anything to do with the rapid growth rate that I was experiencing at the time. But the rashes would go away once I was in a larger cup and the growth period tended to ease off for a while.

Get use to having to wear clothes that just don’t quite seem to fit. Most clothes are not made to fit overdeveloped bust sizes. You can find some though if you look hard enough. You can also have your tops altered or tailored to fit your figure also. It is rather expensive but it might make you feel better about yourself and your predicament. I know when I can find a new outfit that will fit my unique figure I am very happy and I have a much more pleasant outlook about myself knowing that I can still look fashionable.

I still get rashes sometimes. Most of the time a good medicated powder does the job. As long as it stays dry under there I'm fine.

The only time I get rashes under there these days is when I perspire a lot. If I know I will be in an environment where most likely I will be sweating and not have an opportunity to dry myself off for a long time, I will rub some medicated powder or baby powder on the underside of my boobs and chest prior to putting on my bra. This helps the underside of my breasts to stay dry. I have also wedged small dry wash cloths between my chest and breasts to help soak up moisture. I have no problem with hiding a small hand towel in there. It does work on those hot muggy summer days. The main thing is to keep your chest area and the underside of your breasts dry. Besides my forehead and around my ears, my chest area seems to perspire the most, sometimes enough to dampen my shirt.

I just powder up every day. It's just safer and even if it's just a little humid I'm covered. I've done the washcloth thing as well. It just gets so hot under there. The girls are very warm anyway, so that can't help with the sweating. The only thing that really REALLY helps is cool air and low humidity. Air conditioning is my friend.

Lol glad to hear someone else has that issue, i thought it was just me! I was thinking about getting a Faveo freedom bra but I was concerned about whether it would stick for very long, given it needs dry skin for the silicone to adhere.

Has anyone tried the Faveo product? If it works and doesn't make your boobs look like torpedos, then it would be amazing for us those of us who are much too busty for regular stick-on bras. Whenever I buy something backless now, I basically have to make sure that it either has some serious built-in support or that I won't be wearing in settings where going braless would be inappropriate.

I looked at the instructional video they have online and it looks kinda complicated to get on right. Has anyone used them before?

That's absurd.  In what way is that going to give you proper support?  I can't believe it could possibly work in some of the larger sizes they quote.

i have a tendency to spots on the underside of my breast and dry flaky skin on the sides but i find regular vigorous exfoliation helps with both.,

i guess it depends on how heavy you are. Mine get adequate support from much less than that.
