9 Problems People With Big Boobs Want To Get Off Their Chests

9 Problems People With Big Boobs Want To Get Off Their Chests

Today, I, a humble C cup person, went bra shopping. Now, this should not have been a large issue. However, it definitely brought light to a few of the issues that my breasts bring in my life. Here are a few struggles that everyone with boobs can relate to.

1. Bras totally BREAKING


Straps? Breakable. Back and hooks? Breakable. The big thick UNDERWIRE? Breakable, also often causing your bra to shank you in the titty. Like, these things were designed to contain my breasts, and they're breaking the minute they have to do their jobs.

2. Bra sizes? BS!


I only have a C cup, but I have a hell of a time finding a bra that fits since smaller band sizes get rarer as the cup goes up. Since I end up gaining weight in my breasts way before I gain it in the area the band goes around, that means I need a 30 or 32 C. Which is apparently a huge issue given how rough of a time I have FINDING either of those.



Achy boobs? Check! Achy back? Check! A lot of people with really, really large breasts can even be in so much pain that they want a breast reduction just to feel normal.

4. "Bralettes?" Nah.


People with small breasts can wear bralettes, and honestly, as someone without small breasts, bralettes are a mystery. I can tell you that if I wore a bralette, the girls would be EVERYWHERE. How do they FUNCTION!?

5. Strapless "bras" are fake news and we know it.


So for those cis men who probably don't know, strapless "bras" come in three main varieties. There are those that have no straps around the shoulder, just one around the back, those that have transparent straps around the shoulder and/or back, and those that don't have straps and stick to the breasts through adhesive.

None of them work.

Bras without straps on the shoulders slide down all the damn day, meaning that my nipples like to peek out from the bra and see the great wide world. Bras with "transparent" straps a) look very weird, and b) are often uncomfortable since they're literally being held up by plastic. And bras that stick through adhesive? They might work if your breasts are small, but I have genuinely had a bra like this pop off my boobs due to the sheer, unbridled strength of my tits. Strapless bras are genuinely "fake news."

6. Push-up bras? In MY size? WHY?!


Now, I get the purpose of push-up bras for a or b cup people; they can give someone confidence, help people flaunt what they've got. But for people with a C-cup and up? I HAVE breasts. They're ALREADY present. I have too much tit; a mammary calamity, if you will. They do not need to be pushed up. They need to be restrained. And that brings me to...

7. All shirts or camisoles showing your boobs more than intended


Shirts look fine on the mannequin, high-cut on the mannequin, until they encounter a person with Actual Boobs. At that point, they bend to the weight of my melons and decide to show the whole world that I do, in fact, have breasts. I've had camisoles slide down my breasts, v-necks expose so much cleavage, and tank tops turn into titty city.

8. Boob. Sweat.


Until you have had a bra stick to your underboobs because of boob sweat or had little smile lines on your shirt under your breasts from sweat, you don't understand the boob struggle.

9. Unexpected running? Stairs? How about no?


Either of these two things turn my boobs into their very own aerial event. Can we just...not?

But regardless of the things that my breasts do or make harder for me, I can always know I'll have no issue looking fly as hell!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
