Pros and Cons of Having Big Boobs

Pros and Cons of Having Big Boobs

Here are some things I like and dislike about having big boobs


Boobs. We all love them. They come in all shapes and sizes and some women are proud and some women wish for more in the mammary area. I, a big breasted women, can feel the struggle and proudness that comes with this hellish curse. So, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here is my list of 10 pros and cons of big boobs.


1.You Can Fill A Shirt Out Better.

You’d be surprised how many girls I hear complain about how they can’t fill out the top of their shirts properly. “I wish I had bigger boobs. Maybe, my shirt would look better.” Believe it or not, this is a real problem for women with, “smaller assets”. Filling out shirts was never really a problem. I never had to worry about what size shirt would make my chest look better. Though that was the least of my problems in life so far.


2. The “Gap” Problem

Every big breasted women knows what I’m talking about. I may have never had problems filling out a shirt, but I can speak for many when I say that button down shirts was something I had to be cautious of. I always have to take into consideration the size of the shirt and actually try it on before buying it just to make sure I wouldn’t be flashing anyone my bra anytime soon. As a girl who adores flannels, you can see the problem here.


3. Having A Constant Cushion For Everything.

This might be weird, but I literally put everything on my boobs. When I have no more room in my hands to hold stuff, I can always balance things between my boobs and neck for the time being. Papers? Laid perfectly on top. Playing soccer? I’ve never been better at cushioning something to settle and control. I personally think that was my strong point of the team.


4. Bra Padding

The topic of Bras is an entirely other blurb but, let me just say this. Why so much padding? I promise you, we don’t need this much. It’s like I have a personal floating device when I wear a swimsuit and it makes my boobs look obnoxiously bigger than they already are! Please, from a girl with big breasts, WE DON’T NEED THAT MUCH PADDING!!!


5.“Boobie Heat”

With Great Boobs, comes Great Warmth! Having big boobs gives you more body heat than the next itty bitty girl. During the winter, you are sure to be warmer and more cozy than any of you small boobied friends! Think of them as Chest Warmers!


6. Sometimes They Get Too Warm.

As a girl who has played sports since a good part of her life, I know what the term “boob sweat” means to a lethal degree. Grey shirts should be avoided when running, not for the back, for the front. Bands of bras and sports bras get ruined quicker than others. After sweating for too long the smell… It just isn’t great.



I know that grandmas give the best hugs, but have you ever hugged a woman with big boobs? Well, we give great hugs! The built in cushion on our chests makes not only a good pillow for the person you’re hugging, but will also give that comforting feeling that everyone needs sometimes. We’ve been blessed, who doesn’t love hugs?


8. That Guy…

You know what I’m talking about. That one creep who always wants a hug just to feel them. It’s not cool man. They aren’t there just so you can press against them! They’re sensitive too, so I will get mad next time, okay? Plus, some girls just don’t like hugs, so how about you back off. Chill… Jeez


9. Free Things Debacle.

Okay so, I know this might be a little less- feminist of me, but I generally like free things. Free Food, Free Clothes, Free Drinks (Non-Alc of Course!). But I never know what to do when a guy gives me free things or lowers the prices of things significantly because of my boobs. And don’t give me that, “You might just be nice to him in a bad day” or “ He might just like you,” the guy is obviously looking at my boobs. I see it, he knows I see it, it’s obvious. But what do I do?

It’s extremely degrading to know that the only reason I’m getting this is because I have big boobs and he finds enough entertainment in them to pretty much “Pay me back” with a free meal or with an “Employee Discount”, but can I say I mind? I mean, yes, sometimes I do mind and I do tell them that I do and pay anyway, but… I like free stuff!

I mean, it sucks sometimes, but when I’m running short on cash or I accidentally spend too much than I wanted, it kind of helps… I am in no way condoning it and I really do think it should stop, but again… who doesn’t like free stuff???


10. Bras, Sports Bras, and Sports

I have to say this, any sport where you have to run, I might even say any sport period, is a struggle for big chests. First, finding the right bra. It is so hard to find a nice bra. All the cute ones aren’t in my size. The ones that are my size look like my mom should be wearing it. If I do happen to find one, I always have to buy ones with underwire and after a while, it decides to shank you in the sides.

Then when it comes to sports bras, those are even more elusive to find. Especially one that cooperates with all the sports I play and hope to guy it doesn’t stretch out after a while. The “Running Test” is a must before finding the perfect sports bra. Will they stay in place? Do I sag? Are they going to hit me in the face? There is way more that goes into this.

Then there’s sports that put everything to the test. I have to make sure I don’t look stupid if I run around because my boobs are weighing me down and I don’t want my back to hurt more than it already does. If I swim, I have major drag, track is a no-go, soccer I get hit in the boobs 247. Volleyball, I fall on them a lot, basketball, I just look stupid. It just ain’t happening coach. I’m guessing rugby isn’t going to be that great either, is it?

So today we all learned somethings about the struggles and splendids of big boobed women, but that doesn’t mean you should be comfortable with your boobs size. These were given to women for us to take pride in and for you men with breast, enjoy in the gift with us.

But in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please take the time this month to get checked or administer a self-check exam. There is no solid research that says that Breast Cancer is tied with breast size, so please, everyone, make it a job to go and make sure to get checked ASAP! Your health depends on it!

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
