do you know of any stores that sell cute bras in large sizes? I'm sick of black and nude colors. I'm a DDD cup. thanks in advance! I love the blog!! :)
Well I’m not too sure where you live, but where I live there’s a chain called Change that has a TON of sizes! I’ve been told by all my big breasted friends to go there.
If you’re confident in your size, online is also an option - some retailers (Victoria’s Secret included, they actually have 32-40DDD) carry sizes online that they don’t in stores :) I know a lot of people are sketchy about online shopping, but I’ve been doing it for years and it works out about 95% of the time.
I'm only about a C36 ish,but my breasts seem to be more, outward than up, like, my arms rub against them no matter what, and when I'm at art classes and I'm sculpting, i smushed my sculpture when i leaned over it. My cleavage shows no matter what an I hate having to worry about my breasts showing regardless of when I'm wearing nice messer clothing. and I'm always accused of wearing a padded bra, when I don't even own any!! I'm okay with my body, but I wish my breasts were smaller sometimes.
They just get in the way, don’t they? I’m a waitress, and if I had a nickel for every time I discovered that I dipped my boobs in some food hours after the fact, I wouldn’t need tips ever again.
Also, the uniform is a button-down shirt…I got the shirt in a medium. Will forever regret.
I'm an incredibly shy person and one time these obnoxious guys were throwing something across the room, (an eraser? I forgot) so it fell between my chest, and all of them started staring at me going "ohohohohoo". (they were "those" kinds of people). It was the most awkward moment of my life to reach in and take that eraser out... ugh, why can't I be flat... My chest and my personality are two things that should've never been paired up
Don’t let a couple of immature assholes make you doubt yourself! I wish I could tell you that it gets better…but idiots exist at all ages. Don’t worry love, you’re beautiful no matter what, and hey, those boys are just mad they can’t have any of what you’re packin’ ;)
How do you find flattering swimsuits? I'm a 36DD and when I try on a swimsuit I either look like a hooker, or I'm in a granny suit. :(
It’s all about the style of top! Obviously for us large-breasted ladies, string triangle tops are neither flattering nor supportive enough. Luckily for us, the retro-y tops are coming back in style, which generally provide more coverage and support (thicker straps, larger cups, etc). I also really like halters with a thicker bottom band, as well as ones with underwires - those also tend to come in actual bra sizes rather than just S M L, so they actually fit :)
Steer clear of places like Victoria’s Secret (like I had to tell you that). They feel the need to put push-up in EVERY SINGLE BATHING SUIT EVER as well as they often have stupid sequins and other tacky shit all over them, which really doesn’t help with the whole not-wanting-to-look-like-a-hooker thing.
I'm only a freshman in high school.... and I'm now a size 38D. It's awful. Especially since I play volleyball which includes a lot of jumping and moving around... Any good sports bra brands that you know of?
I like Lululemon ones, they have one called the Ta Ta Tamer that comes in actual bra sizes. From a quick check, I see they even have 38D! The All-Sports one is good too for really flattening those puppies down.
I wear a size M bra, and I'm 20 years old, and only 265lbs. I am extremely ill proportioned. So, finding reasonably priced bras that won't disintegrate upon the first impact between my foot and the ground, and clothes that aren't male, or that don't look like a hot air balloon parked on top of me, is almost absolutely impossible. I know that you've been asked quite a few questions about large breasted fashion lately, but I was wondering what advice you could offer for someone as big as myself.
Im recovering from an eating disorder which means lots of weight gain and all of a sudden I have huge boobs! Im like a big 32C/ small 32D. Its really a downer trying to shop because now even large dresses don't fit. Any advice to help me love them?
Hey love, kudos to you and I send you all the hugs :)
As for the clothing issue…I do wonder what stores you’re trying to shop at because for me, at about a big 34D/small 34DD, I can shop perfectly fine at Forever 21 (usually a L there), H&M (usually a size 10) and other common stores. Unless you live in Asia, because then I would understand. I visited Korea (I’m half Korean) a couple years ago, and let me tell you, at 5’9 and a robust 155lbs, it was near impossible to find clothes that fit me. Of course, I can’t necessarily wear whatever I want if I want the clothes to be flattering, so it’s just a matter of finding what works for your body :) I’d be lying if I said I always loved my boobs, but I’ve definitely learned to work with them! I fill out my clothes, and I love every minute of it. Just remember that your body is changing and that you’re not going to look the same as you did in clothes before - and there’s NOTHING BAD about it :D
Some tips for big-boobed clothes shopping:
BANDEAUS ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND. Seriously. Invest in a couple. They help cover cleavage in low-cut tops without bunch-y layers.
Buy things oversized if you have to. A belt can help cinch in the waist!
Fuller skirts will help balance your frame.
Button-up shirts are hard to find, unless they are meant to be oversized. We must all accept this.
You need to find a happy medium between high-neck and low-cut, because high-necked stuff usually looks like an awful ski-slope thing on large chests (there’s a post about it somewhere :P)
Since I’ve been living with these sweater puppies with a fair few years, I can usually guess what will look good on me (and presumably other like-chested ladies) and what won’t. So, here are some suggestions to work off of:
(Urban Outfitters - I actually own this dress, LOVE IT!)
(Also Urban Outfitters - also own this and love it too!)
P.S. Don’t mind the small chests on the models. I can 99% promise these will look just as good on big boobs - at least in my experience :)
So, in conclusion, clothes CAN and WILL fit you, just not in the way you’re used to. Plus, 32C/D is FAR from the worse you could have it. I’m sure they seem huge to you, because I assume it’s a big change from your previous size, but those E-cup ladies would probably kill for your size!
I hope I was of some help. Good luck on your road to recovery, and remember…love your boobs, they are a blessing…most of the time ;)
