Pretty much any lingerie store (chain or otherwise) or the lingerie department at a department store offer free bra fittings if you ask them! If they don’t do fittings, they probably aren’t a very good/professional store, so I’d go somewhere else. Just be sure to treat the measurements as a guideline only, as the traditional measuring system doesn’t really take breast shape into account. For instance, I was once measured at a 36C, when I was probably actually about at 32DD at the time - my boobs are kind on more wider and flatter than they are round and perked out (if you get what I mean) when not in a bra, so I get why that might have happened.
Thank you so much, I didn’t know that! I’m sure everyone will appreciate knowing now :)
If your’re over a D, I personally consider that pretty big, but I am not the Big Boob Club President. If you consider them big, then they are!
Of course it’s not weird! Your weight does not determine your breast size. As for bras…unfortunately, there are very few “cheap” options generally if you’re over a D-cup or if you have a weird size, the least expensive is probably around $40 I feel your pain, I’m also 32DDD! My best suggestions would be Change, Victoria’s Secret or Bravissimo, because they all carry 32DDD (make sure to double check your size with Change and Bravissimo though, as they are European/UK companies so their sizing is different). If you live outside the US though, be forewarned that VS charges an arm and a leg for shipping!
Well, your body is changing and there isn’t really much you can do about it besides accommodating your new one! ie. get re-fitted for new bras, get some new clothes. I do recommend getting new bras before anything else though, because once you have the proper size they will sit higher and change your whole silhouette, and your clothes will fit differently. If they’re looking saggy while in a bra, chances are you need to go down a band size (or two) and up a few cup sizes. Always remember to dress the body you have, not the one you wish you had. You’ll be a lot less stressed. If you’re concerned that they look saggy naked, there isn’t really much you can do about that…just remember that very few people actually have perfect perky porn star boobs (especially considering 95% of those porn boobs are implants anyway), and if anyone ever reacts negatively to seeing them, tell them that they can go fuck themselves, clothe yourself, and exit. Good luck :)
Any speciality lingerie place will probably have swimwear for big boobs, but I do have a couple suggestions!
http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/swimwear_420120 (the Kelly Brook line goes up to an F cup!)
http://www.lavieenrose.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Category8_10052_10001_-1_5002_5_5002008_Tops_SWIMWEAR_image_0_DCup_-1_ (I bet some of the non-moulded-cup ones would work)
If anyone else has any suggestions, feel free to toss ‘em this way :)
Man, I had a rash before…go to the doctor, they’ll give you a cream to get rid of it! I tried self-medicating with tea tree oil first, but I would not recommend that, it just made it very burn-y and red :P
As for insecurities…don’t worry! I know nothing I say will really make much difference, but believe me when I say that very few people actually have pretty porn star boobs…even people with small boobs can have a bit of sagging or “imperfect” nipples. There are no “normal” boobs, and generally people know that, hence why people are complimentary. If anyone is ever less than complimentary about your boobs, slap ‘em and put your shirt back on, because they are probably a shitty person. I mean, you just let them see your boobs! Who are they to complain?
I’d say so, but I’m not supreme ruler of the big boob club or anything…if you feel like you have big boobs, then ya do :P
to the anon looking for a strapless bra in 30F. I’m 90% sure Bare Neccesties carries them (You’ll have to order online though). Just type their website in and click on Bras: Size 30F. I wear 34 F (sometimes FF) and I know their band sizes go down to 28.
I don’t really go on Reddit, so no, I’ve never looked! And I know right?? A good strapless bra evades us all, though…I have one that does the job, it’s not the greatest but I need to wear it so infrequently that is doesn’t matter much :)
