I have heard a few girls claim it hurts them to run no matter what sport bra they use. Does a treadmill help or not? Can a girl with large breasts use an elliptical and be comfortable and not hurt her breasts? Does swimming hurt a girl with large breasts? Does weight lifting hurt a girl with large breasts?
In general what exercises hurt a girl with large breasts and what exercises don't hurt her breasts? And are large breasts a curse or a blessing?
Well I have larger breasts and after a while, yes it does start to hurt. Treadmills tend to make them hurt more and faster. After about 25 minutes of running, my back starts to hurt and I kind of have to hold my boobs up while running. haha. Ellipticals are much better because you aren't bouncing up and down as much and so it doesn't hurt your back. Swimming doesn't hurt because the water just glides over them. And it doesn't hurt to weight lift. Sports bras don't really help a ton either-- which sucks.
In general, running or jump roping (any activities that causes them to bounce a lot) tend to hurt them. Any activity that doesn't cause them to bounce and hurt your back is good. And large breasts can be both a curse and a blessing- just depending on the situation.
I have D's and I have to say that they are both a curse and a blessing. But, mostly a blessing. It does hurt to run but only if your running really fast, cause they pound againest your chest, but, if you wear a bra it doesn't happen as much and it controls it well. But, it kinda of feels like you have a wieght on your chest, which, is kinda annoying because they make you tired quickly. A treadmill is just like running anywhere, so, it doesn't really matter if you run on a treadmill or not. Swimming actually feels better because fat floats and since boobs are 90% fat, it feels great. Its the only time I don't feel wieghted down. Wieght lifting feels really good. It actually doesn't matter if your breasts are big or not.The more muscles you have the less it hurts when you wieght lift.the only for of exercising that hurts is running pretty much, everything else is ok really. Just as long as it doesn't take to much endurance it's ok. Dancing it alright too because it's so fun you forget about the wieght. I think having big breasts makes you get runners high quicker though, and that's kind of a bonus.
Girls with big boobs usually have to wear two or even three sports bras when they work out in order to support their chests and prevent back pain (and future sagging). Two of my friends have have breast reduction surgery for this reaction.
I don't have very large breast but they aren't small either. They don't hurt but it can be uncomfortable. I wear a regular bra under a sports bra when I run because it keeps them from bouncing which doesn't feel great. I'm a swimmer and don't usually have a problem except I do feel uncomfortable sometimes not having the support underneath them in my suit.
Speaking from experience (38F) no it doesn't hurt unless they're specifically tender like during the menstrual cycle. Now, we do need to wear a good support bra so they aren't swinging all over and become sagging but as for pain, I haven't really experienced any.
