Okay ladies, this one’s for you! If you were blessed and cursed with having a large chest, these struggles will be totally relatable! I have been a DD cup since around 8th or 9th grade, so I have been dealing with all these irritating things every single day of my life!

Cute shirts that turn into crop tops.

You and your friend wear the same size shirt, except on her it’s a normal length. When you put it on, however, it instantly becomes a crop top because of how large your breasts are. Buying shirts is also super hard because you have to buy things to fit your boobs and then they don’t end up fitting the rest of you. Also, forget anything with a high neck. That just makes your chest look even larger.

Boob sweat.

This one is pretty self explanatory. It’s gross and annoying and completely inconvenient. It makes you so uncomfortable because your bra and your shirt are super stuck to you. Some people even resort to putting deodorant/antiperspirant in between and under their boobs to try and help with the sweating and the sweaty smell.

They get in the way of everything.

This one is so annoying. Sitting at a table for dinner? You better believe your boobs are going to be rested on the edge. In a tight space with a bunch of other people? Be prepared to have them accidentally rubbing up against them. Going for a jog? Better put on like 5 sports bras because if you don’t have them properly secured, they WILL hit you in the face.

When you lay down you instantly start to suffocate.

Lying on your back is hard because they move up into your neck and press on your airway. Maybe I’m over exaggerating, but my point is that they basically swallow your entire neck and make you look and feel like some mutated creature thing. But, lying on your stomach isn’t really much better because then they get sore from being pressed on for so long. Getting comfortable when you have big boobs can be a difficult task.

You have to buy bras more often – and EXPENSIVE ones at that!

Buying new bras is literally the epitome of our existence. When you have more to hold up, your bras wear out WAY quicker than someone who wears an A. Shopping for new bras when you are busty is such a long, dreadful process. It takes forever because you have to literally try on 40 bras before you find a single one that fits right and then when you do find one it costs $70 for a single one! It’s so infuriating to have to spend so much money on something you have to have!

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.
