This blog is by people with breasts, for people with breasts. This blog is inclusive of all people with breasts, regardless of gender. It celebrates the beautiful diversity of breasts, of all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and races. Breasts are such an important and integral part of what makes us feel beautiful and sexual. By showing how all breasts are different, and uniquely special, we will be able to challenge the beliefs around what makes breasts beautiful. There is no single standard for breast beauty! By sharing photos we are demonstrating how every breast is different, and in turn, we will be able to help people with breasts feel better about themselves, improve self-esteem, and show that yes, you are normal.
NOTE: This blog shows photos depicting nudity in a non-sexual setting, and contains written content with adult themes. Photo submissions showing nudity are to be from people 18+ only.
My pleasure. Emma :)
That’s not surprising at all that sizes can seem so different, though from a B to a DD sounds unusual in my untrained opinion. I’d say that you just have an unrealistic idea of what cup sizes look like, and it’s due to a common misconception about what common bra sizing means.
A bra’s cup size is relative to its band size. To work out the actual size of a bra cup, the band size needs to be taken into consideration. Understanding how band size is related to cup size will help you to choose the right sizes to try on.
For example, bras that are sizes 32B and a 34B have different cup sizes, even though the letters are the same. Bras that are sizes 34B and 32C will have the same, or very similar cup sizes, even though the letters are different.
Going down one band size, but up one cup size, will keep the cup sizes exactly the same, and they will have a similar fit, even though the letter sizes are different. The reverse is also true: go up a band size, and down a cup size, and the cup sizes will stay the same.
The difference in cup size from one letter is easy to remember because it’s always 1 inch. This rule only applies when the band size is the same.
Consecutive cup sizes are always 1 inch apart. It doesn’t matter if you’re comparing a 32A with a 32B, or a 36C and a 36D, the difference between both sets of consecutive cup sizes is the same, 1 inch.
Every bra is constructed differently, with a varying cuts, styles and with different fabrics, so no two will ever fit exactly the same. It doesn’t matter what the size on the tag says.
It would be erally surprising if your bra size didn’t change from one style and brand to the next.
And it’s always a good idea to get yourself profesionally fitted, at least once a year, but if you’re still developing, then maybe twice a year or even every time you buy a new bra. Upwards of 80% of people with breasts get it wrong when it comes to bras and wear the wrong size. That can lead to anything from having an obviously ill-fitting bra with boobs spilling out, bunched up, too high, too low etc, all the way through to health problems like increased back and neck pain. So get your girls professionally fitted, ok?
Whether you get a reduction is entirely up to you, but it’s so sad that you’re considering surgery to make total strangers feel happier about your body. Do their opinions count? I say absolutely not. You may think the same of mine!
Would you take out a bank loan and buy an apartment because a random stranger said you should? Would you cut all your hair off because a random stranger said they didn’t like long hair? Would you change jobs because a random stranger said they didn’t like your profession? Do you give a flying fuck what they think about that sort of stuff? But you’re going to have surgery on your breasts because some guys said they don’t like big boobs? Seriously?
I think it’s time for a reality check. It’s your body and you decide what you do with it. Just make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons, and make sure those reasons are valid. And believe me, there are hundreds of millions of men who love big boobs. Have you ever seen porn, for example? There’s lots of really big boobs there, (and tiny, small, medium and large ones) and porn doesn’t make that stuff without a demand for it.
People have preferences for this and that, but really, breasts are breasts and they are all awesome. Unfortunately only the bad boobs are the guys you’ve met who are in the minority, both in opinions and in common human decency.
Sorry I have no advice about how to hide them. Other people with really large breasts may be able to chime in here.
Best of luck.
Oh that’s a good question, but really I have no idea. I doubt it’s cycle-related or to do with morning after pills. Maybe other site visitors can comment? As with any body issues you’re worried about then it’s best to see your doctor to put your mind at ease.
Thanks for the compliment! But two blogs are more than enough for me. I’m actually asked to do them all the time for various other body parts, and usually they would be good and worthwhile ideas. But I haven’t the time or resources or drive to do anything more than I’m doing now.
But really, I have no special skills, no web or blogging prowess, no psychology or counselling training - just empathy, opinions and a degree of passion. I say this to everyone who suggests I should do this or do that - if you’re passionate enough about your cause and determined to make a difference, then you can start your own blog too, just like I did. I’ll even help promote it.
