  • Boobies

    Can I talk about my boobs for a minute?
    I know I am new here... and y'all don't know... but seriously, who better to discuss your ta-tas with than total strangers.
    I have always had biggens. Early bloomer, DD by high school, blah, blah, blah. Not perky or perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but looking good with a supportive bra under a t-shirt.
    Anyway... enter pregnancy. Gargantuan melons appear.
    Enter breastfeeding. Size variation, daily, in the ka-pow up to holy-sh!t range.
    Enter post-bfing weightloss. I seriously do not even recognize these puppies anymore. They are small(ish) and totally lacking fat. I went from close to 190lbs down to about 165 and I think 10 of those pounds were in my boobies.
    I don't necessarily want my biggens back... the smaller ones make me look and feel overall trimmer... but I do want what I have to feel full and supported. So, talk to me about pectoral muscles, good bras, skin shrinkage, surgery... anything to make me feel like I have boobies again.

    And sorry to anyone who came in here expecting to talk about some sexy titties... I'm talking flop.

    I breastfed my kids. Give the girls six months to a year post breastfeeding to for things to redistribute themselves. Things will firm up and tighten for at least that long afterwards. As far as bras go- I hate underwires with a passion, I've never had one that didn't stab me. I'm not small, single D after breastfeeding and I have a teenaged daughter who is a petite 5'3" with DD. So we have gone through bra misery. I find that cups with no stretch are best with wide minimally stretchy straps. We tend to be very short bodied and high busted so we have to find very short straps as well. Wide bands with at least 4 hooks in the back fortify things best. Yeah we tend to wear pretty industrial looking bras, but they shape and support nicely and believe it or not most comfortably. As a historical re-enactor I find Elizabethan corsets are pretty darn comfy and supporting(not nearly as extreme a victorian corsets, more like a girdle). My daughter would put a good firm shaped exercise bra over her normal bra when she had to run in PE in school. She found that either one alone just wasn't enough to stop painful bounce. She had a couple of the other large busted girls in her class following suit within a month. The normal to flat girls couldn't figure it out until they told them why. These days the effects of being post forty and gravity are definitely taking hold.

      my pcos gave me breasts that aren't 'normally' shaped (rounded) and fluctuating hormones and weight loss haven't been as kind as i wish it'd have been

      my game plan is pushups to help the area get firmer and perkier, and if i don't wear underwire bras then my boobs don't look so hot. it shapes them

      i can't say much about skin shrinkage or anything, my fingers are still crossed i get lucky on that one
      beautiful
      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
      lol

          My girls were huge in high school My best friend and I were nicknamed the boobsy-twins, if that tells you anything. fast forward to post kids and weight, they were LLL. i had to buy special bras etc. my nick and back always hurt.

          i finally chatted with my hubby and said i need to explore a reduction. he was very supportive. So we started the process. The morning of the surgery I asked how small I could go with them. Seriously he said, let me take a trace of his hand to give to the surgeon. HAHAHA.

          best move I ever made. Even with the pain after the surgery, my neck and shoulders stopped hurting immediately. They took about 4-5 pounds of breast tissue from each side. Now the girls are happy and I can wear normal size bras.

          Do what's right for you and it will work out.

          Ken - seriously??

                        I used to be 100% against boob jobs but now I'm singing another tune...after three pregnancies and breastfeeding two kids for a total now of four years so far, yeah, my boobs are path-etic.

                        If you lose weight you're gonna lose weight in your boobs. A lot of the fat in breasts is there FOR breastfeeding- so that takes its toll. Add to that time, gravity and a -lack- of skin elasticity- we're going to look much different than we did pre-baby.

                        It's frustrating though, I know, with our culture's view of what a perfect breast looks like.

                          Tell me about it. I'm a 46-year-old B-cup living in Vegas. I'm a freak out here.

                            I have traumatic childhood memories of watching my grandmother waggle into a bra. When mine head south for the winter, I'm paying cash money to have them hiked the hell back up. I'm ok if they end up smaller.
