13 Struggles Women With Big Boobs Have In The Summer

13 Struggles Women With Big Boobs Have In The Summer

All you little boobed girls out there, be grateful.

Whether you love them or hate them, carrying around an extra 50 lbs on your chest isn't as glamorous as it might seem. Sure I'm blessed and grateful for the body God has given me, but that doesn't mean that women who are big chested like myself can't complain. Especially in the summer when the struggles of women with big boobs have a harder time finding clothes that fit, are affordable and have a tendency to make the warm weather seem ten times hotter outside. So, let me tell you some reasons about how summer is the worst season for all the busty ladies out there. Trust me--I struggle too!

1. Underboob sweat. The worst. I repeat... THE WORST.

It doesn't matter if it's walking the dog, sitting outside, or running a marathon, if it's hot out, my boobs sweat beyond belief. It makes embarrassing sweat marks through my bra and shirt for everyone to see.

2. Which now means every item that touches your breast must be washed over and over.

3. Summer fashion does not favor our breast size.

Bralettes? Strapless/Backless Dresses? Bandeaus? Nope.

No matter how hard they try to convince me, an extra large does not fit my size DD sized boobs, and never will. To be honest, it's a total bummer when some dresses and loose tops can have a tendency to make big chested women like myself look pregnant, or heavier than we actually are. And no, we can't just wear a bandeau without a bra. So thank you, considerate designers, for not only not considering our wants and needs for cute summer clothes, but actually trying to convince us that they can fit. Stop lying. Please, just stop.

4. A typical summer day is naturally a countdown to when you can get home and take your bra off.

Because we all know that built-in bras in summer dresses are useless to our girls, and only the most uncomfortable bras can give us the support we need.

5. Even wearing the most causal summer outfits end up looking inappropriate.

Trying on crop tops (even in your size) look like you have nothing on, and there are no ways to make even a basic tanktop look less risqué.

Oh, and don't even get me started on button down shirts.

6. Having a battle between wanting to go for a run in the beautiful weather or drawing everyone's attention.

Carrying around two heavy masses on your chest isn't as easy as it looks! The number one rule for exercising requires two sports bras (unless you want to be in severe pain the whole time), and no matter how supportive they claim to be, it's never enough.

7. Accepting death as an option when on vacations.

We can't wear a life jacket on a jet ski or boat because like everything else, our breast size is not considered in the matter. It's either too tight so it's impossible to breathe or just simply not worth putting on at all. So, we have a higher chance of drowning or choking ourselves with our pushed-up cleavage.

8. But the real struggle of the summer is (attempting) to buy bathing suits.

9. When most stores don't carry sizes above a D-cup.

And the only places that do have them could potentially break your bank account, and they break easily so it doesn't even make the expensive purchase worth it.

10. So buying a bikini top and bottom of the same size in a set is utterly impossible.

Sorry mom, it's not my fault God made me this way so that I need to buy separate sets of a medium bottom, and a extra-large top. This is probably the most irritating things a girl with big boobs has to deal with.

11. Almost having to dig to China in order to lay in the sand stomach-down.

Or it just creates boob divots, ones you'd prefer others to not see. But whatever, life goes on.

12. Why don't you just lay on your back then?


13. And in one way or another, beach days include flashing everyone.

Attention all fathers, mothers, children, and sea creatures, they're here! So I apologize in advance for exposing the twins when when getting knocked over by a wave or adjusting my top a million times.

But, no matter how big they are, and how much you all struggle like I do, just know that you all are still as beautiful! So rock the big boob struggles (yes, even the boob sweat), enjoy the summer, and enjoy your girls because they love you!

10 Reasons Your Big Sister Is The Best Person In Your Life

"There is no better friend than a sister, and there is no better sister than you."

As much as I hate to admit it, my big sister might be sort-of, slightly, cooler than I am.

Sometimes. She's the one I call when I can't call mom and the only one in the family who can properly handle my attitude. Big sisters are the people you'd choose if they weren't already family, and here's why.

1. She is your first and truest friend.

Big sisters are (literally) there from day one. They see every dirty diaper, every bad haircut, and every melodramatic breakup. They deal with every bad day and drama queen attitude and still love you in the most unconditional way.

2. Her closet is your closet.

For some reason, her clothes always look better on you. Funny how that works, huh? With a big sister comes a big closet, and who doesn't love having a double wardrobe? I'd also like to take this opportunity to apologize for the clothes I will never give back (but I'm not really that sorry).

3. She knows what it's like to deal with your parents.

Anything you could possibly be going through, they went through it first. It's kind of like having an instruction manual or a key to the future. Either way, it's always nice to have someone who will always understand the struggle.

4. There are no boundaries.

Wanna dance around in your underwear all day? Cool. Life talks while she's on the toilet? Also cool. There's no awkward moments or changing in the bathroom with the door locked. There's just the kind of freedom that only comes with siblings.

5. Thanks to her, you know about all of the cool movies/music/fashion trends from years back.

Thanks to my sister, I have every Too $hort and Ludacris song you could ever think of downloaded on my phone. I've seen every cheesy '90s movie, and when a fad from 10 years ago comes back in, I already have the hookup.

6. She tells you like it is.

We all have those friends who tend to sugarcoat everything. Yeah, sisters don't do that. She's the first person to tell me when I'm making a terrible decision and that I really shouldn't triple text that boy again. She keeps it real with me and deals with my attitude, and that's why she's the best.

7. Her home is always open.

Sometimes you just need to get away from life and binge watch Netflix, and sometimes you need all of that plus your sister. She always has her door open when you're two seconds away from losing your mind, and she also has good takeout and a dog.

8. She knows what you're capable of.

My sister knows exactly who I am and what I can do. She knows when I'm not doing my best, and when I need to be set straight. She's always there to remind me who I am and what I'm capable of accomplishing. She's always been my biggest fan.

9. She's a lot cheaper than therapy.

For some reason, my sister always knows just what to say. Even if I don't see it at the time, she's usually right (don't tell her I said that). Big sisters are like wizards, somehow they always magically make you feel like life's gonna turn out alright in the end. If she wasn't already awesome at everything else, I'd suggest she be a therapist.

10. She will always be your go-to gal.

No matter the situation, she will always be by your side. There is nothing you could say or do to make a big sister leave, and that's why they're the best. Whether it's a speeding ticket, a mean girl or you just need to laugh, big sisters are always going to be there to lift your spirits and set you straight.

I couldn't make it without ya sis, I'm sorry for ratting you out on Thanksgiving that one time, and for running away at the zoo. Thanks for taking me to see Aaron Carter even though he's way too old to still be singing "I want Candy," and thank you always for being the best role model, sister and friend I could ask for.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
