Spinoff: do you have big breasts?

Also, what defines a big rack for you? What size? I'm a 36D and since the rest of me is small/compact I consider that a pretty decent set of jugs, so I chose BIG

    You don't have a medium or "average sized" option. :? Mine aren't necessarily BIG, but they have never been described as small. :D Being forced to choose I will have to go with big.

    I have been fairly small all of my life, until the past year. They aren't small, but they aren't big either. They are average. I think they fit my body perfect.

    i voted big, although by normal-people standards they're probably medium. i'm a 32C but since i'm 4'10" and around 95 lb, i've been told they look pretty big (but not horribly disproportionate).

    I'm big but I don't have any back aches. I'm in the DD category. I can only imagine how big I'll get if I ever have babies.

    I said too big, I'm a 34dd, but I'm only 5'2", and my back and shoulders always hurt.

    They're the first things to gain weight, so @ 20lbs overweight, they're definately too big. When I'm down that 20, I'm a 34d, on the smaller side, and I'm quite happy with those.

    I hadn't thought about this until one of the recent threads. Talk about a potential nightmare.. I'm a 38 DDD.

    I'm proportioned pretty similarly to you. I'm 5'2", 103 lbs, and 32C. I guess they look a little big compared to my small frame, but they aren't disproportionately large. I don't really think they're that big, especially compared to those of you with DD cups.

    Mine are too big. Even though I can afford to lose 40 lbs, I still think they are too big even for my overweight self. And unfortunately, they're not too big simply because I'm overweight. They seemed to go on a growth spurt in college, when I wasn't overweight, and haven't looked back since. Breast reduction surgery is on my list of "must haves" in the near future, but I don't have mdeical insurance right now so it's out of the question for the time being.

    Me too and I can't find a bra anywhere to save my life! I'm totally fed up with looking to the point of almost crying in the dressing room when nothing fits. :cry: I will just have to buy a 40DD (the cup in that size seems close to a 38DDD) and let it be too large I guess since the cup fits me but the band is way too big.

    I obviously chose "too big". I know that when I lose weight they will too and I won't be so unhappy. They get in the way!

    yeah, i would have put average normally, but because of this pregnancy thing, my boobs seem to grow every day. i'm constantly shocked when i wake up in the morning at how big they get overnight. :shock:
    i'm still squeezing into my 36C bra, but i'm SURE i'm gonna have to hit the store and upgrade a few sizes soon...
    :oops: i wish they shrunk instead! i'd love to be a fried egg girl...i'd LOVE not to wear a bra every day!

    Try Frederick's of Hollywood! I swear, that store saved me. I can't even count how many times I've cried in stores because both bras and shirts were impossible to find. Even when I've lost weight, my chest didn't shrink a bit. I'm not big, but I'm broad--my back and ribs, so finding bras that have support and don't slide down over my ribs (the ones right under my chest stick out quite a bit) and cause some severe saggage was beyond impossible. I'm 18 and want to dress my age, but I always had to buy granny bras and ill fitting shirts until last December when I came across Fred's in the mall near my university. For the first time ever, these things are where they're supposed to be and my clothes fit sooooo much better, though shirts are still hard to find. Try Old Navy for shirts--I'm not sure what fit you like, but the rest of me is 2-3 sizes smaller than my chest (so buying dresses is out of the question-too much taylor work), and their tiny fit t-shirts in large fit really well for me because the material clings where it's supposed to.

    I wear these and these.

    I chose big in the poll because while I'm pretty big, I've finally come to peace with them, all because of these new bras. My doctor has said I'm not big enough for a reduction and that although I've had back pain for years, it's probably not caused by my chest, though he's not sure why I have it. When Frederick's doesn't have my size (when I'm buying at a store instad of online), I'll get 40 DD, though the 38 F (DDD) fits better because of the band.

    I didn't vote in a category. I consider myself average now. I'm a small (as opposed to full) 32DD/34D (equiv. to a 36C). I used to be a 32H+. So, I think I could be forgiven if I even consider myself small now. :)

    I have enough problems finding jeans for my long legs and an 11 inch difference between my hips and waist - please DO NOT add boob issues to the mix! :lol: I went from my happy little 34B to a whopping 36 D the day after I first had my child - I did not know what to do with the darn things! I had these torpedo ****! I guess if you have gotten them gradually they aren't as bad, but to wake up with them was crazy. Even hubby was like - Are those going to go away? They don't look right on you! :lol:

    Too funny. I am also a calf person if I had to choose. So when DW went from a smallish 34B on her 5'5" 125lbs frame to during the pregnacy a 40G 155lbs, never really lost the baby weight, started with number 2 kid and has now settled into a 38DD and around 150lb.

    Shoot...she'd lose 5 pounds apiece for those things probably. :lol:

    Oh cool! I hope I get to keep mine. :D

    I didn't vote either...at 8 and a half months pregnant, I am a 34C. That is in the medium category.

    IMO I don't really consider a C cup as big, maybe medium (I agree w/a poster that there should be a voting option for that).

    I "was" a 34DD and when I got pregnant went up to a 36FF! :shock: Got milk?? Thanks to a wonderful surgeon, I am now a perfect 34C. My insurance even paid because I had years of documented medical problems. My reduction was the best thing I have ever done for myself.

    44DD. Back aches, neck pain, not enough evidence to get a reduction. Never complained to a doctor, only to family. They claim family doesn't count... :roll: lol

    I wear the old granny bras, because no one is going to see them but me! When I feel cute I might wear my wonder bra. We weighed them at the doctor's office, I used to work at, and they weigth about 10 ponds each. So if I lose 20 lbs, they'll be gone...yeah, uh huh. I'll wake up in a minute.

    I was the only 3rd grader in a training bra. I would love to be about a 36 c, maybe smaller. Don't want them too small, then I'll look out of balance. Small enough that I don't HAVE to wear a bra though

    I'm big. Really big. I'm not voting for TOO big even though I am in a 34G because I think they're just right! I am under 5' but I have a curvy hourglass shape and I feel everything's in proportion. I do have some minor back pain but only in relation to a shoulder problem that is not caused by my boobs.

    For everyone who says their straps are digging, I say get a tighter band size. Your band is what needs to hold you up. Measure around where your band needs to go and find a bra with that number on it. Don't size up or it's going to be too loose, it will ride up your back and your shoulders will be carrying your boobs -- hence shoulder and back pain. A good supportive bra makes all the difference. Just remember that when you go down a band size, you go up a cup size.

    If you can't find a small enough band size, try figleaves.com, bravissimo.com or eBay. For some reason, all the best full-figured bras seem to come from England. I'm a huge (no pun intended) fan of the Fantasie smoothing bra. I also love their Belle balconette bras. There's no reason to wear underwear that looks like Grandma's and there's no reason to live in pain either.
    3a/b, fine, lots of it

    Pacammi,
    Start a papertrail. Go to your family doctor and explain your problems to him. Better yet, go to an orthopedic surgeon. My plastic surgeon told me there was NO way insurance would cover my procedure. My orthopedic surgeon had even "lost" my chart which contained years of medical documentation backing up my complaints. I went ahead with the procedure because I couldn't take the pain anymore. I had my family doctor as well as my orthopedist each write a letter of medical necessity for me claiming that my back, neck, and shoulder pain would be alleviated with a reduction and my insurance company, after the fact, reimbursed me. If you fight hard enough, you'll win. Insurance companies are notorious for turning down claims the first time around. They don't want to pay for anything. The squeaky wheel will always get the oil, or in this case the breast reduction. :wink:
