Yes, you read that one right. I am talking big over the shoulder boulder holders, knockers, boobies, melons, globes and eh… tits – I have heard them all. As a curvier gal, I have had to adapt my life to the bigger chest area and it hasn’t been as amazing as you might think.
For as long as I can remember I always was the girl in class with the bigger breasts, or at least one of the girls. I am pretty certain I went from an age 8 girls vest to a size 30D. I was wearing a bra in Primary School long before anyone else knew what a bra was, other than something that hung on your mother’s washing line. Fast forward 15 years and I’m crawling around in a 34GG wishing I was 11 with the 30D (yes… 11)
Those with smaller boobs always say ‘God you are so lucky’ and I am like ‘REALLY?’ While yes, of course they have their upside they most certainly have their downside too. You have to think about the back pain and the teeny tiny tops that your breasts will never fit into. Living in jealousy that your upper body will never look as thin because of the pillows attached to the chest. Dealing with your back breakers have to be considered into every day life so if you have big boobs or indeed little boobs then read along for why it’s important to find the right bra.
Approximately 80% of women wear the wrong bra! Who knows, you might be one of the 80% – have you been fitted? Those women that offer you help when you are buying bras are there to help, not catch a glimpse!
They’ll fit your bra to suit you and give you advice. It’s important to get fitted everytime you go underwear shopping, especially if you are shopping in different stores. From personal experience I have found that in one brand I am one size and a totally different size in another.
A bra is designed to give your breast support and to keep them comfortable throughout the day. Not only is wearing a bra important but you have to make sure that the bra fits you properly. A good bra stops sagging (I hate that word) because they are so heavy which helps them to keep their shape and keeps them higher for longer! Stops them from bouncing around all over the place, knocking people out. Think of your bra like a hammock, something nice and comfortable for them to lie in. They are more comforting and supportive than any man will ever be. No man has ever cared for me like my bras have. Having a good fitting bra also makes your clothes look better and more flattering, no matter the size you are.
That being said as comfy as they are supposed to be, it’s seriously liberating whipping that bra off after a hard days work and throwing it across the room.
My favourite places to shop for bras are http://www.bouxavenue.com and http://www.debenhams.com They have a huge range available for the majority of sizes and a great selection of styles. Once you start buying nice underwear however, it is highly addictive – be warned.
PS, A push up bra with bigger boobs? Forget about it.
The Boob Chronicles
My boob once knocked my hot chocolate out of my hand when I was running for the bus and it spilled down me.
I took my bra off on the bus once because I couldn’t wait til I got home.
A shirt button actually pinged off and darted across the floor while I was in a job interview.
If I roll over in bed too quickly one boobs slaps off the other. It sounds like a walrus slapping off the ground.
I don’t have enough hands to count the amount of times my boobs have popped out of a bikini.
I have to wear two sports bras when I work out. Twice a year.
I was elbowed in the boob yesterday and I still feel the pain today.
I haven’t seen my toes in 13 years.
After every cinema outing, I come home and take my top and bra off and the equivalent of a small salted popcorn falls out.
