Big Titty Problems

My, what big bras you have!

In a conversation with a homegirl a few months back, the struggles that come along with being mammicularly blessed came up. So I have decided to share them with the world. If you have small chesticles, let this be a warning to you to be careful what you wish for. I give you, Big Titty Problems:


1. You can’t find bras. I wasn’t even out of high school when I outgrew the Victoria’s Secret collection. I do believe they sell 1 or 2 styles in a DDD (or at least they did last time I cared 10 years ago), but for the most part the cute styles end at a 38DD. That’s that bull. Although some department stores and online stores sell larger sizes, there are problems 2-6 below. The only positive thing is the old lady that does the bra fittings at Nordstrom tells me I am very blessed.

2. Bras are all minimizers. Who says that just because you have huge tits you want them minimized? That shit is racist. Yes, it is helpful when you see a button holding on for dear life, but for the most part I don’t want to make my boobs look smaller. The smaller my boobs look, the fatter the rest of me looks. Therefore, I would prefer them celebrated and not held down. Maybe I want a push-up bra!! That’s greedy, I know. But if I want a bra that can make an F cup look like a G cup, I should be able to get one dammit. This is a capitalistic society. Stop trying to make me a D. Skinny chicks can rock D’s. I got a lot of hips to balance out. Can’t no D’s do it.

3. Bras are not cute. Apparently, if you have huge honking boobs you are expected to want beige bras. Maybe a black one every now and again. But nothing colorful or sexy. You aren’t supposed to want all those cutesy prints and lacey numbers and sexy plunging necklines. No ma’am. You get a big beige full coverage bra with straps that are 3-inches wide and have 5 hooks in the back. Now granted, I understand that’s probably what Aretha Franklin needs to hold those puppies in place. But I’m still in my 20s so all that shit ain’t eeeeeven necessary. My boobs are not at my waistline. Now over the years I have learned to hunt and have a ton of cute bras but you best believe I work hard at that shit. Way harder than a 36C does.

4. Ain’t no matching panties. If you want a bra/panty set… you’re washed up. So if you are fortunate enough to find a cute & sexy bra through divine intervention, you now have to go on a totally separate mission to get some panties that sorta kinda MIGHT match back to it. I stopped giving a shit about this years ago, but men seem to care. So if you like men, you’ll do it.

5. Bras aren’t cheap. I wish I could get a $20 bra that actually looked like something and fit my boobs in it once in my life. But no….. I’ve over here with a $300 worth of bras in my online shopping cart. And all I got is 5 bras. No drawz! That’s that bull!! I’m telling you…

6. You can’t play golf. I will never forget going on a date to the driving range and trying to be taught how to play golf. Within minutes it became clear that there was simply no way I could swing my arms straight across the front of my body because I was just hitting boob. Everyone found this hilarious. Boobs will fuck up your stroke. I hate golf. Don’t ever ask me to play ever again.

7. Running is a goshdarn circus. A cotton sports bra just can’t contain 20 pounds of bounce. I have tried every possible type of sports bra to no avail. So running becomes a show for everyone in viewing distance. I remember in middle school a little boy told me if I kept running in gym class I was gonna put my eye out!  Oh yeah — and your back will get angry with you.

8. It messes up his pimpin. Big ass bras are like Fort Knox. Dudes think they have skills if they can unhook a two-hook bra strap with one hand. Not impressive. You ever tried that shit with 4 or 5 hooks? Shiiiiiit. Awkward. If he isn’t used to it, it’s gonna take him a few minutes. And he’s prolly gonna feel inadequate because of it. The good news is, there is a big reward if he can get it open…. but he’s gonna have to work for it.

9. Fucking underwire. Underwire is a necessity. Bras without it give you either the uni-boob look or a granny look. So you’re gonna need some underwire to hold those puppies in place. But when that shit decides to give in one day and poke u in the size of your boob? LAWD!!! It ain’t good! I got scars man. And then don’t let it be your favorite bra!! The one that makes your boobs look like two ripe cassabamelons! Damn… a good bra is irreplaceable sometimes. *tear*

10. Men talk to your cleavage. There are a good percentage of men who have spent 10 mins talking to me who have no idea what color my eyes are. #Fact. This happens whether you have them on display or not. Hell, sometimes those suckers will creep out on you when you didn’t even intend for them to be out. Ol sneaky things! But yeah, staring is not cool. I will let you take one quick glance down but I’m gonna need your eyes to come right back up. Yes, I have eyes. Seriously.

Where my other big titty chicks at? Did I miss anything?

    Yes please be careful what you wish for. As a teen I asked for large breasts, they grew like weeds in college and uuh I got thicker everywhere else as well. Freshmen 15 my butt! Lol And I acquired large holes in my pockets because a great bra under $40 is hard to find. This is a great read and yes I’ve been chumped into liking beige, white, and black bras. Grrrrr!

      nursing tanks are really great I agree with the other posetr. You can wear them out, or wear them to bed (you’re definitely going to need bras to wear to bed, to prevent leaking). I like that when I’m using them, the side of my belly remains covered while I nurse. Other than that, I went to a Motherhood store, got fitted, and tried them on. Go with what’s most comfortable.Remember, the beginning is hard. Stick with it, nurse as much as you can, and it does get betterReferences :

    All very good points. U forgot the padded bra tho. Like if I wear anything over a DD I don’t need no extras. I have more than enough.

      Um, I was ginormous when I was prnneagt and when my milk finally came in. Pre-pregnancy and now, I’m a 36F – fucking genetics – and granted, I got up to the size of a mother effin’ house (220), I was wearing a size 38H. It was a /wrist moment, for sure.Go to Fredericks of Hollywood. They have cute bras for sizes over what VS carries. And when I say cute, I do not mean granny shit. I mean, actually cute bras similar to VS.

    OMG! I was laughing soooooo hard. Can relate to all. Except I wear minimizers. Don’t want one boob looking bigger than my small head.

      Honestly, you’ll need a couple even when you’re just tniyrg it out. You’ll leak a lot and they get kind of gross fast. I’d get at least 3. You could also try nursing tanks. Those were AWESOME for me the first couple weeks. I just picked some up at Target that had support in them. I’d recommend one with no underwire that looks like a normal bra. The nursing sports-bra type were weird to me.References :

    I LOVE YOU.
    seriously. love you.
    This is too perfect.
    I have been in denial about my size, finally went to someone who knew what the hell they were doing and told me I was 2-3 cup sizes bigger than what I was wearing. Most girls would be excited but I knew I was doomed to the world of granny bras.
    Where do you find cute bras? I’m struggling. I have 7 different colors of the same bra right now. On the real, this is getting ridiculous.

    Hi there, I’d like to join the big titty comittee. Exhibit A: 42H bras that run $52 a piece. Yeah, I was a D cup before I even hit high school.

    I buy my cute bras at Cacique via Lane Bryant. Bravissimo is good if you’ve got the $$ for the nice ones.

    Oh em gee. So right.

    Just to warn you for the future, it is virtually impossible to find nursing bras if you have a huge chest. Which makes NO sense to me at all – I mean, if there’s ONE consistent demographic that needs HUGE bras, it’s nursing moms. I had to settle for a 36 DD at Motherhood (ouch!) before I finally found a 36DDD at Babies R US (with an underwire and supportive stretchy expanding cups). The minute I found it I went to go buy it, had the understanding lady at the register cut the tags off, and RAN back to the fitting room to put it on because I was in so much pain from my 36DD I couldn’t stand it for another minute.
