2 fingers? Lmao omg... i can like pull my band like 8 inches ... shit.. hahaa. thanks for the advice! Next time I go bra shopping I will definitely look into that. I think you're actually right, I used to wear a bra that was 34D, and the band was straight across, but my boobs grew and are no longer a D. That was a while back. Thank you!!
Yeeeahhh that sounds like it’s just a wee bit too big :P
No problem, I’m happy to help! And good luck, do feel free to report back :)
really? My boobs always look saggy even in my bra... they go as far as down to where my torso "curves" so you can't see the hourglass shape, it's almost covered by my boobs.. So I should try maybe like 32DD? The thing is I rarely see those in stores. Does it hurt your spine wearing tight bands? Does the band stay "straight across"? B/c for me the band is alway super high up my back and low on my chest, from the side the band makes a shape like this \ in a way, like it tilts to one side more
That all means your band is too big, your whole bra should be parallel to the ground. It doesn’t hurt my spine at all! Generally I can go through the whole day without any discomfort. If you’re wearing a 36DD now, then try 34DDD. Up a cup size, down a band size. Remember, you should only be able to pull the band out about 2 fingers on the LOOSEST hook (since it will stretch with wear). Victoria’s Secret does carry 34DDD, I know that for a fact, but they don’t always have it in all styles. I’d recommend going to a more speciality bra store though, since VS is more fashion-centric, at least for your first bra. And do get measured, though take it with a grain of salt, because those measurements aren’t always accurate and don’t take your breast shape into account. I 100% promise you, once you get a proper fitting bra, your boobs will not look saggy.
im kinda "thin" too i'm 5'3" and i weigh 130lbs, so i'm pretty decent/average. I wear 36, and it's kind of "loose" but if i tighten it too much it starts to dent my skin and it hurts my spine a lot...
That’s the issue, nobody is well informed about how bras are supposed to fit so everyone is used to wearing ill-fitting bras! The tighter band does take some getting used to but it’s how it’s supposed to be. Like I said in that post, 90% of the bra’s support is supposed to be coming from the band. Also, literally as soon as I got my new 32DDD bras, I started getting “did you lose weight” comments just because they perked up so much. I mean obviously what bra size you wear is your prerogative but hey!
you're... a 36DD?? your boobs look small though, and i like the shape. i'm also a 36DD but my boobs look bigger than yours? weird how that works. i think mine are heavier, they sag further down due to the extreme weight, while yours look "lighter" that's why they have a round circular full shape. Mine look like overflooded "tearducts". Yet it all fits in the same bra. Strange. Your boobs are beautiful btw i'm so jealous :c
Nooo I’m 32DDD. So a cup size smaller (I’d be the same as a 36D if you translate it). I really urge you to try different bra sizes though, just because your boobs “fit” into the bra doesn’t mean it fits properly! A 34DDD perhaps? Or maybe even 34E? I’m not exactly thin yet I wear a 32 band size, so I generally have a hard time believing anyone who says they are a 36 :P
I'm only a freshman in high school and I already have 36D's! I hate my body because I've always wanted small perky boobs! Not huge heavy ones! They make it look saggy when they aren't!!!!
I’ll let ya in on a secret…sometimes even smaller boobs are saggy, and sometimes big boobs are perky. So don’t feel like you’re missing out on something by having big boobs, because boobs are actually so much more varied than porn would have us believe. And don’t you worry, any guy (or girl, if you’re into that) who gets your top off won’t be complaining, because boobs are boobs. And if they do complain then you get the fuck outta there.
Question though, are you sure you’re a 36D? Because you’re probably not wearing the right size if they look saggy in your bra, because I totally know what you mean. It’s quite possible you’re actually a 34DD. Here, check out the difference there was between an ill-fitting bra and one that actually fit (warning: you are about to see me shirtless [with a bra though!]) http://bigboobprobs.tumblr.com/post/53822750604/my-bra-size-journey
it's funny, i'm pretty petite (like 5'1" and 110) and when i first started high school, guys and girls alike would make fun of me for being flat (i was like an a or b cup). i was humiliated and developed some body issues. somewhere between then and my senior year in high school i became a 32DDD, but because my sense of what i looked like was so warped, i was still convinced i was small!! it took a lot of perverted comments and physical discomfort from my size to change that
People just suck, it’s simple as that. I don’t really get why people make fun of people with smaller chests, like ha ha the lumps of fat on your chest is really small lol so funny…?
I'm the 30J anon from before. All of those issues mentioned and more are difficult for me. Also I'm over 18 but just don't have the money to get a BR because it's considered 'cosmetic'. Thank you for answering though. I appreciate you doing that and I know there's no easy answers, unfortunately. I haven't told anyone really so even if you said the most mundane things possible, it couldn't have been a bad thing. I don't know, I just hope things turn out ok.
Ahh I see! That’s kind of bullshit that it’s considered entirely cosmetic, since I’m sure you must have wicked back pain at this point. Why have you chosen not to open up to anyone about these issues, if you don’t mind me asking? If you’d like to talk a bit more privately, do feel free to message me off anon :)
I know it might be difficult to see it this way, but I think the key is to stop blaming yourself (well, your boobs) for your problems. It’s the fault of those giving you the negative attention, and the fault of society in general for making anyone who doesn’t fit into a cookie-cutter shape feel like they’re abnormal.
To get a little TMI, I previously had struggles with my body image concerning my tummy and thighs more so than my chest, since while it is generally agreed that I have big boobs, they aren’t really big enough to cause more than minor inconveniences (like those humorously outlined in the original meme cards on this blog). Basically, I was quite slim up until I was about 14, which is when I started filling out. I was never overweight (and I’m still not), yet my family took it upon themselves to point out my weight gain. Additionally, I danced competitively until I was 18, and I was always one of the bigger girls in my group. To top it off, both my best friends and my parents are HUGE into fitness, while I am, well, not. So, despite being a healthy weight (5’9 and 155lbs is perfectly fine), I always kind of felt like the “fat” friend and the “fat” child (my 3 younger siblings are all slim).
Anyway, my point is, by working to reverse that mentality, I have since become much more comfortable with myself. I know that I’m healthy, so when my dad tells me I should lose 20lbs to get rid of my chin fat, or when my friend turns her nose up at the large serving of pasta I’m about to devour with a snide comment, I know it’s THEM that has a problem, not me.
I’m sorry if that whole novel I just composed seems really unrelated to you, but to me, body image issues are body image issues. They all stem from the same source: society. I’m not saying you necessarily have to “love” your boobs, but at least try to stop blaming them and hating them. It ain’t their fault, or your fault. You’re not abnormal. And I have faith things will turn out :)
Do you or anyone know decently priced, quality bra that comes in a 28G/H? Preferably under $40? The only ones I find in the store are $80, so the internet is my last hope to get a properly fitted bra. Thank you!
AND OMG guys I totally missed this, but you can shop online at Change now!!! Not sure when that started, it must have been within the past few months because you weren’t always able to. Just remember the sizing is European so be sure to plug your size into a converter or consult a chart (just Google it) before you shop: http://change.com/int/
P.S. For anyone who doesn’t know what Change is, it’s a lingerie store chain that carries a HUGE size range, and it’s the store that changed (lol) my bra life. Only problem is they only have stores in Canada, Scandinavia, and a few places in Europe, so it’s great that they ship worldwide now :)
I'm a 32DDD too! super inconvenient size sometimes :/ I work at Victoria's Secret and even with my discount it can be hard to find bras!
UGH I know, I usually end up ordering online if I really want a VS bra, and even then half the styles don’t come in that size :/ At least they actually carry 32DDD now, since they didn’t up until like a year or two ago!!! I’m hoping they continue to expand their size range, though that might be some wishful thinking :P
I know, poor lady. Hormones can be giant assholes. Of course, some of that was also due to minor weight gain, but it certainly wasn’t enough to warrant growing 5 cup sizes! She’s a happy D now though :)
i dont get why you're trying to convince people their boobs are beautiful. This isn't about beauty, this is about legitimate pain (& emotional). I'm afraid you don't understand. As for the anon who asked how to relieve back pains, I'd try working out to see if losing weight will make my breasts smaller, and also do exercises that can strengthen my back. That is a lot of work though. There isn't much that can be done but a surgical procedure, honestly. It's a curse. :(
Well, if the hatred stems from self-consciousness about their size (which, for some, it does), then changing perspectives would be beneficial. Everyone’s experience is different, and maybe I don’t understand your personal problems, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I don’t understand anyone. As women, we’re pretty much trained to criticise and hate our bodies for not conforming to society’s ideal, and in addition, breasts are such an oversexualized body part that, if they’re that large, it’s easy to feel like nothing but a walking pair of boobs. I’m pretty sure there’s a post on here talking about being called a “slut” based purely on chest size, and that’s obviously not fair. Not feeling comfortable in your own skin can be a huge emotional draw, and having “too big” boobs can be as much of a confidence killer as tummy fat or stretch marks or small boobs or cellulite or every other thing we’re told can be “wrong” with our bodies, so if you can quit seeing those things as so negative, the sun might just shine a lil brighter. That’s been my take on the whole situation. Plus, you know, most of the questions say, “how do I feel more comfortable with my size?” or something similar, which I interpret to mean “how do I learn to accept my boobs?” And in order to do that, you need realise that all bodies are beautiful - no matter your boob size.
If the pain is, ya know, physical, then you’re right, a change in perspective can’t do too much to help.
About breastfeeding - if a doctor is skilled enough he can preserve most of the breast milk, but that's with luck. It also depends on the procedure and whether or not they will cut, reposition, and resize your nipples. If you're seriously suffering, a breast reduction is ideal, and I'd try to work with feeding my baby what I have left, and mixing it with formula. This may not be most young girls' concern, but I've read many women regret their reductions when they struggle feeding their children.
Of course you can have children with formula, but that's not very healthy to the children. After you have a breast reduction you usually don't lose ALL your milk, but at least half. I'd recommend feeding your own milk as well as formula. Your own breast milk helps the immunity of your baby. It IS essential and you can't deny that. Also random question, how big are your own boobs and what's your weigh/height? I'm personally 5'3" 132lbs and 36DD. I'd get a reduction but I want healthy kids first.
I totally agree that it’s better to breastfeed, I was breastfed myself, but for some people it simply isn’t an option. Even the breast reduction issue aside, some women just don’t produce enough milk for the baby anyway. Or a lot of the time breast implants prevents milk production (though I don’t think anyone here will have that particular problem :P). My mother has implants, actually, but she was lucky enough to still be able to breastfeed. It is possible to raise a child on formula, even if it isn’t ideal. Lots of kids have been raised that way and they are clearly still alive. Obviously, if you can provide at least some milk, go for it, but it isn’t the ONLY option. It’s a personal choice, really, in my opinion.
And no worries, I’m 5’9, 155lbs, and 32DDD. So, big enough to cause inconvenience, but not big enough for life issues, I suppose :P I don’t feel a reduction would ever be necessary for me, unless they grew drastically after pregnancy (a friend of mine’s mother went from I think a B to an F after having kids, so she understandably had a reduction). I know a lot of the girls on here have it way, WAY harder than me!
I'm a 32DD and I get back pains from my boobs. What can I do to ease them?
Honestly, there isn’t really a magic “cure” for that, beyond the normal methods (painkillers, massage, heat, you know), or the extreme, that being breast reduction. And make sure you have well-fitting bras, because proper support is essential!
Are you sure it’s from your boobs, though? There are a whole host of other things it could be (eg. bad posture, sleeping funny, something out in your back), and 32DD isn’t really THAT big, unless you have a really small frame. I’d try maybe going to a chiropractor, if you haven’t already :)
I think you can get a breast reduction if you're under 18 if you have parent permission. I've heard of girls under 18 getting breast reductions. It's not recommended but if they're so huge, some insurance companies will pay for the procedure. The issue with breast reductions that you need to remember, and I've never seen this blog point it out: Is that it can damage your chances of BREASTFEEDING!! That is an essential part to motherhood! But if your breasts are so painful, it can be worth it..
I didn’t know about the breastfeeding thing, which is why I’ve never pointed it out, so thanks for letting us all know! I wouldn’t say it’s an “essential” part to motherhood though, necessarily…at least not in the sense that you’re “not a real mother” or “not mothering correctly” or whatever. Though breastfeeding definitely provides health benefits to the baby, plenty of kids grow up on formula just fine (as long as you pick the right kind, of course). And if these girls already have, you know, J-cup boobs, I shudder to think how big they’ll get during pregnancy, and I’m sure they do too. Personally, I think the pros usually outweigh the cons in such cases, but that’s just me.
I’m pretty sure most doctors do recommend you wait until after puberty, though, just because the size is still likely to fluctuate, though in extreme cases I’m sure it would be worth looking into.
"I can’t stand my boobs. I’m 5 foot five and 170lbs. I wear a 36FF. I don’t know how to handle it, all of my bras come from Bare Necessities. I want to hid in large sweatshirts and never wear remotely anything revealing. How do I get more comfortable with my size?"
- question (make sure you send these as asks next time please :) )
Comfort with your body honestly comes with time and age. I’m going to guess you’re fairly young still (under 18 at least). And everyone can shove the “you’re beautiful the way you are” message down your throat 30 different times a day, but you’re never going to accept it until you’re ready to accept it. And that comes with time. Something that really helped me come into my own was looking at others with my body type portrayed in a positive light, as it helped me to see my own body as beautiful, even if I didn’t look like my skinny-mini gym-pushing best friend. My favourite blog is http://hourglassandclass.tumblr.com/, she posts beautiful pictures of curvaceous models and submissions from girls just like you & me :)
My hope is that over time mainstream bra stores will start carrying a wider size range, so we don’t have to go searching high and low just to get a proper fitting bra, which I’m sure will help us all feel a bit more normal :P because every woman deserves to feel beautiful and sexy, regardless of their size :D
I'm about a 30J cup. I really hate my boobs most of the time and self harm. I mainly do it in places that will be cut off when I get a breast reduction though, except it'll be years away. I don't really have an outlet for these kinds of problems because I don't go to school or work so I don't interact with anyone really, especially not anyone with the same chest issues I have. I need some help, but I don't really know how or what. If you could suggest anything, that would be great xx
Sweetie…I’m so sorry I took a bit to reply, honestly I just feel a bit ill-equipped to handle such serious issues as self harm. Maybe it would help to get to the root of your problem, for instance, why exactly do you hate your boobs so much? Do they cause you to receive negative/unwanted attention, do they make it hard to find clothes, do they make you feel like you don’t fit in/are inadequate? Perhaps once you have answers to these questions, you can start to fix them. Know that you are far from alone (hello, who do you think follows this blog?!), and know that you are beautiful and you are worthy of feeling beautiful. We all go through periods of discomfort with our bodies, especially during puberty (I’m assuming you’re under 18 since you can’t get a breast reduction yet).
Even if you don’t have distractions in the form of human contact, try to find other things to occupy your time. Take up music or baking or painting or photography or yoga or writing…anything to take your mind off it or help channel your feelings.
I know a lot of what I said is probably very typical advice, so I apologise if none of it was helpful, but I hope it was. You are strong and beautiful and you are so much more than your breast size, and we’re all here for you :)
So everyone thinks my boobs are huge but I don't think they are that big. I'm 5'1 around 110 pounds and I'm a 32dd. Are my boobs that big for my size?
Honey, I have news for you: yes. I’d say anything over about a D-cup is generally considered “big”, regardless of your height/weight, seeing as that when it usually becomes a problem when finding clothes, since most clothes seem to be made for people with B/C-cup.
Honestly though, is the classification of your boob size really a vital topic of debate? :P
Hello friends! As I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t really been making posts for a long time now, and honestly I don’t know if I’ll ever get back to it.
However! I am still on Tumblr frequently, so if ever you have questions, do feel free to shoot me an ask and I will most likely get back to you in good time! Any questions about anything, doesn’t have to be boob-related :) (I wouldn’t recommend asking me for help with your math homework, though. Despite my Asian heritage, I am completely hopeless at math).
(Part 2) If I go bigger the wont fit. I have indents under my boobs which makes the band loose and the under wire isn't even on my body. My mom is cheap and doesn't like going into the expensive bra stores and i'm too young for a job. I have no full coverage bras, demi/ balconette bras so I cant get full coverage and my boobs want to travel separate ways (no boobie line) I'm getting tired of my friend poking my side boobs I just want to have full coverage please help? :(
Omg, all that sounds awful, I’m so sorry! Honestly the best thing would be to sit your mom down and really explain to her that this isn’t an aesthetic thing, it’s not like wanting a new shirt or haircut. It’s about your comfort, both physically and mentally. Your bras are simply unwearable. If your bras are hurting you, then there’s an issue. You have to be able to make her see reason, after all she has boobs too!
Check if there are any outlets in your area, and see when there are going to be sales. I don’t know where you live, but if you have a La Vie En Rose near you, they have really cheap bras (like $20 sometimes), which normally I wouldn’t advocate, but at this point it’s better than nothing and since you’re clearly still growing it almost doesn’t make sense to invest in the expensive ones.
Also, I know you’re young, and therefore not many of your friends will be well-endowed, but if you know anyone who might have hand-me-downs, hit them up. Something is better than nothing!
Hello :) I have this problem with all my bras. I was a 34a in the sixth grade. I went 34b in the seventh and eighth(I had to put up with them my mom didn't want to buy more) im a freshman now and I bought six bras two of the six fit me and now four months into school they're too small and the under wire had popped out and stabs my boob! the straps wont adjust any tighter, the band is too big and I have major side boob and spillage. (Cont.)
I've got another question for you. Almost every time I tell someone I'm trying to lose weight, one of the first things they tell me is, "It'll come off your boobs first!" Thing is, my boobs are basically the last place my body puts fat, and they haven't changed in size whatsoever, no matter how much weight I've gained. Is there any truth to what these people are saying, considering?
Yes, some people are going to lost a few cup sizes as soon as they start losing weight. Breasts are basically just fat stores, so it makes sense that our bodies will pull energy from them. But not everyone is going to experience this right away, if ever. It entirely depends on how you’re personally programmed. While some people won’t be able to lift a single weight without having to buy smaller bras, others would have to become dangerously thin before their bust stats to change. These things are tough to predict, so one result is never going to be true for everyone.
So in the end, why worry about it? Stay active, eat what makes you happy and your body will take care of itself. If other people are fixated on your bust, it’s probably time to call them out on it. It’s a little concerning that they’d be more concerned with your boobs than with your autonomy and happiness.
I'm 5'4' 180 lbs 16years old and... A size 32 N cup.... Doctors say I should get a reduction when I'm 18 but I'm scared.. I mean what are the pros and cons?
With a chest that big, you’ll probably end up with lots of back problems (if you don’t have them already). And chances are, they probably wouldn’t reduce them THAT much; my friend’s mom had a reduction and I think they only reduced them one or two cup sizes. From what I understand it’s a fairly low-risk procedure. But, I’m not a doctor and it’s your body, not mine, or the doctors’ either, so make that decision based on YOUR happiness and comfort. You still have time to decide, so not to worry :)
Did you have bigger boobs when you were in middle school? (sorry if it's a weird question) but I'm 13 and I have a 36C and it's so disproportional since I'm only 5'1
No not at all! I wore a 34C by the end of grade 8, (was probably wearing the wrong size though, probably actually a 32D). I’m tall though, I think I was about 5’7 by that point. Don’t worry though love, most likely the rest of your body will catch up with you by the time you’re done with puberty! And make sure you get a proper bra fitting - it’s very likely that you’re actually a 34D. The right fitting bra can do LOADS for your figure, I promise :) there’s more info on my FAQ’s page if you want to look into that more!!!
I literally still fit in training bras but that's not really the problem the thing is, How can I find better fitting bras for these things? (They don't make them as secure as I need them to be
I’m a little confused as to what your problem is here…if you still fit in training bras, does that mean you have smaller boobs? Either way though, just go to a bra store and get measured AS A STARTING POINT, and then go from there. Check the FAQ’s section for how a bra should fit :)
If that doesn’t answer your question do feel free to reiterate, I’m just not too sure what you’re asking :P
Shopping online is the only way I can get a sports bra! If you’re in the US, I reccomend Bare Neccesities. The cheapest one though is about 45 dollars, but they run in allllllllllllllllll sorts of sizes!!!! :D
Hello. Im running a new confession blog where people come and confess their big booty feelings. It's a confession blog welcome to any and every one who go through life with big booties. You can come and confess negative and positive things on this blog. I was wondering if you can promote my blog please?
I'm a 38D, 5'4", over 200 lbs and I'm absolutely huge. I feel like a whale. The only thing that I have going for me is my boobs but they're saggy... And they have stretch marks.... I feel gross and feel sorry for any man that would see them.. What can I do to make them better?! Please xox.
Alright lady. Here’s the thing. Guys don’t care nearly as much about that shit (stretch marks, etc) as we think they do. They are LUCKY they get to see us in all our naked glory, and most of them know it. It’s a gift we’re giving to them, really. So don’t you ever feel ashamed of your body or your boobs, because when a dude finds you sexy, he won’t care about some stretch marks or saggyness. Plus, normal-people boobs are not nearly as pretty as porn would have us believe. Moral of the story, if any guy ever makes you feel bad about your natural body, tell him to fuck off, cover up your sexy ass, and peace that scene.
That being said, though, if the stretch marks bother you that much, treat them as you would any other scar. Bio-oil helps, or if you just get pure Vitamin E capsules and prick them with a pin, rub the oil into the affected areas. That should help them fade some :)
So I have a problem. I'm 5 foot 3 inches and I play volleyball and softball. Last year at about the start of school they were measured 30C. Now they're 30GG. I've gained about five pounds (120lbs) so I don't understand how I gained 5 cup sizes. It's annoying because I can't find any decent bras. And I'm 16 so all the guys in my grade are acting weird around me because they're big. Where can I find decent bras for 30GG cup and also how old do I need to be to get a reduction? Thanks
Well, if you live in the US I’m not too sure, as I live in Canada, but if not, you can check the FAQ’s section for some suggestions :) try department stores or specialty lingerie stores, that’s your best bet!
As for a reduction, I’m pretty sure most doctors would recommend waiting until after you’re done with puberty; also, unless your parents consent, I think you’d need to be 18 (legally an adult).
So I was just wondering if there's a specific time when your boobs stop growing? (Besides when you get pregnant of course) but I am 18, and am up to a size 32DDD and it seems like they won't stop! And the weirs thing is that I was an A cup before
Honestly, no. Because you will continually have hormone fluctuations and weight fluctuations throughout your life, your boobs are likely to change with you. I mean chances are you won’t randomly go from a B to an F or anything after you’re through with puberty (AKA around 18 or whatever) but varying from one cup size to the next isn’t uncommon. Experts recommend that you get measured every 6 months, but personally I ain’t got the money to get a new set of bras every 6 months. In my experience, I went up about a cup size in the past 3 years (I’m 20 now).
In conclusion, no, there is no specific time. Things concerning your body are rarely concrete or specific :P
I'm a 38C (American size) and I play a lot of different sports (track, tennis, soccer etc) and it's becoming harder and harder to find suitable sports bras that will support me. My friends suggested I try the multiple sports bra method, the problem with that is its too much pressure on my chest and makes it hard for me to catch my breath. Do you know any stores/brand named that sell supportive sports bras?
Sorry love, I don’t do a lot of active stuff and when I used to dance Lululemon was fine for me! Other than that I got nothing :(
If anyone else has any suggestions feel free to toss em out there :)
How do I make my boobs look smaller, I'm a freshman in engineering (in other words, classroom full of horny boys) and my size is 34dd (usa), so I really would like to know what i need to wear so my boobs don't look that big D:
A fellow large-breasted friend of mine was very good at hiding her boobs; in fact, we (that is, the rest of the dance group) had no idea her tits were so large until we all undressed in front of each other. She generally wore a tight tank underneath (to suck em in) with some kind of oversized top, like a tunic. Black also helps. Regardless of your boob size though, horny boys will be horny boys…I always say to wear whatever the hell you want. It’s not your responsibility to make them keep it in their pants.
So this is the most dumbest question ever, but how do you know when your bra doesn't fit..? I try bigger bras and they end up to big.. I'm a 32D and I'm falling out of this one... What size would be next.? 32DD??
Well, there are a whole host of things that can be wrong with your bra. A well-fitting bra should sit parallel to the ground all around (should not be riding up at the back), and you should really only be able to fit two fingers under it, or all the support will be coming from the straps, and that is wrong. If that’s the case, you will likely need to go down a band size and up a cup size (i.e. 34C —> 32D).
If the cups are giving you a double-boob effect, or if your nipples are constantly coming out, the cups are probably too small. Also, the middle part between the cups should be flush against your ribcage, with no gaping.
Basically, it should fit, keep everything in, support, and be comfortable everywhere. Try a 32DD, but also try 30DD and 30DDD if you can find em. LaSenza and Victoria’s Secret both carry 32DD, but you might need to go to more specialty stores (i.e. Change, if you can find it) for the others. Additionally, make sure you try lots of different styles, because everyone’s boobs are shaped different and are therefore better suited for varying styles.
So I'm a fairly petite girl (5'2-5'3) and 110 pounds but I have 34Ds. When it comes to buying and wearing tank tops I'm a wreck. I usually get a size small cami because it fits my torso but I show too much cleavage. What can I do to have a cami that is still fairly tight on my torso but also cover my boobs?
Dude, I am a card-carrying member of the Torso Smaller Than Boobs Club (boobs are a large, body is medium). It depends what you want the tank tops for. If you’re using them to layer under stuff, then a bralette is always an option! Not the stupid tiny ones with impossibly small cups, the ones that look kind of like lace sports bras, like this:
This one is from Garage and I have two of them. Garage actually fits on the larger side (AKA I actually generally do wear a medium rather than large).
As for actual tanks, I can’t really help ya :( are mediums really that much too big that they’re unwearable? Keep in mind too that if they are at least part cotton, they will shrink a bit if you put them in the dryer!
Also, when you say cami, do you mean like spaghetti strap tanks with those useless shelf bras? Because honestly, I just cut the shelf things out. Much less restricting and will help cut back on the cleave.
I am pretty sure I am a 40E my back has been hurting a lot and i love sport bras, but i can't find any that support me super good, i mean they are good but not good enough, Also, How much do bras bigger that a DD run, do i need to get them custom made?
I don’t know much about helpful sports bras unfortunately beyond my own experience (I’m 32DDD) :( Lululemon carries up to 38DD, and they have pretty awesome sports bras, so maybe that would work?
But for normal bras, you do most certainly not need to get them custom made! If you’re confident in your size, ordering online is always an option - there are plenty of specialty large-size sites, if you do a quick Google :) also, as I’ve mentioned, if you live near a Change store, go there!!! Their size range is absolutely massive (they have up to a K European size, which I believe is like an H or I US), and they have some pretty styles.
I am a very petite person (4'11), 18, really tiny except for my boobs witch are 32D. I don't have very much trouble finding bras in this size, but 9 out of 10 times I find a bra that fits the straps are far to short. The only straps that are short enough are in the kids department, where they obviously don't have the proper cup size. Do you know of any places that sell petite bras for a reasonable price?
I’m assuming you mean that the straps don’t shorten enough? As a non-petite person (I’m 5’9, so kind of the opposite :P) I personally do not know of a place…sorry! Anyone able to help this lovely lady out?
