Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

When I was younger and going through puberty, I thought having big boobs was going to be the greatest thing ever because I thought it would get me lots of attention and make me feel hot but little did I know that with big boobs came with great responsibility. This mytake is for those who have big boobs or for those who think having big boobs is all fun and games to learn that it’s really not. So here is my rant against my 28L sized boobs.

Expectation: “I would look hot in all my clothes!”

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

Reality: If you can find clothes that fit you!

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

My boobs get the final say in what clothes I buy because it’s either I find something that fits my boobs and looks baggy everywhere else or I find something that fits everywhere else and looks like I’m giving everyone a free show. I haven’t worn a button down shirt in years and I can’t button my new cardigan all the way because the top button will pop off and hit someone in the eye. But when you do find something that does fit everywhere, it’s a dream come true! (If you don’t mind people judging you harshly).

Expectation: “I could cover them up when I need to and only flaunt them occasionally”

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

Reality: No, you’re going to show them off even when you don’t want to!

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

I can’t wear stuff like tank tops, T-shirts, or anything that’s too tight or has too low of a neckline because you can really see my boobs. Even if they’re covered because a fitting top can still show the size of them and there are times when my shirt slides down and my boobs sneak out of the top and say “Hi everyone!” Which is not something I like because I prefer to dress more conservatively in order to be taken seriously.

Expectation: “They would come in slowly but surely!”

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

Reality: Nope, they’ll grow like crazy

(Insert same picture here because it works twice)

I was 10 when my boobs started growing and they grew about 2 cup sizes a year, making me the girl with the biggest boobs in class and the other girls ask if I stuffed my bra and when I was 19, they grew 6 cup sizes in a year and they were FINALLY done growing when I was a 20 year old with mixed feelings about her 28L boobs (but at least I’m in college now with girls who have bigger boobs than me (thank God I’m not alone lol).

Expectation: “Finding bras wouldn’t be too hard!”

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

Reality: I hope you hate money!

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

I can’t go to the stores like Victoria’s Secret because they don’t carry my size so I have to order my bras online for 50 a piece. And don’t even get me started on the prices for the strapless bras!

Expectation: “I would be so sexy that no man can resist me!”

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

Reality: Sure, if you like creepers!

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

If I had a nickel for every time I had a creeper compliment me on my body of all things, I’d be so rich that I wouldn’t need to use my boobs (that apparently have the power) to snag a rich husband! Guys, it’s tasteless to flirt with a woman by praising her body! Praise her clothes or her personality, not her boobs (or whatever else) unless you’re in the bedroom and having sex!

Also, some dudes aren’t that shallow, some dudes prefer small boobs, and some dudes prefer dudes. So if you’re gonna planning to go under the knife just to get that one guy, you’re just going to be stuck with two watermelons on your chest and that guy not looking twice at you.

Expectation: “Exercising wouldn’t be a problem! I’d just wear a sports bra!”

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

Reality: ...Or two or three or 5000.

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

I haven’t ran in ten years because I don’t want people staring at my whole my boobs bounce all over the place and throw out my back at the same time. And sports bras do NOT get the job done because they are too flimsy, don’t cover the entire boob, or they will at first until the boobs find a way to free themselves and stretch out the sports bra... Yet another reason why I’d rather stay inside and eat pizza.

Expectation: “They would be so perky!”

P.S. Best Show Ever :)
P.S. Best Show Ever :)

Reality: Ever heard of gravity?

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

They sag down and make me feel like a grandma because I can’t get away with not wearing a bra because they droop down to my tummy. I would only get complimented on my body if I wear a bra!

Expectation: “You’ll learn to love them!”

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

Reality: Yeah :)

Having Big Boobs: Expectations vs. Reality

My boobs can be a real pain in the ass, but they’re my pain in the ass and I learned how to live with them and how to dress with them. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when I wish they weren’t so big and I wish that I could take them off at the end of the day (my fellow busty girls will feel me), but they’re a part of what makes me feel sexy and a huge (pun intended) part of what makes me... me :)

Thanks for reading and may you and (if you have them) your boobs, big or small, have a great day!

  • I get you on this one.

    I was an A cup most of my life.

    Last Aug 2017, i was prego 4 mos and my boobs went up to a full C cup. Had a miscarriage, but kept the boobs.

    I am a nanny/wet nurse for the family i live with and after starting to nurse, I am almost a full D cup. They do get in the way some times, but given a choice to going back to a tiny A cup or staying a large CC, I choose the CC.

    Not only for my own self esteem, but guys actually pay attention to me more now.

    I was one of those cute skinny girls that as soon as my boyfriend found a big boobed, wide hipped, curvy behind, flat/curvy stomach girl, he dumped me.

    Nothing worse than being at the mall with your boyfriend and a sexy girl walks by. "Cassie, damn.. i wish you had tits like hers! and OMFG, look at the sexy ass and legs!".. he was oblivious to what he just said and how it made me feel crappy about how i looked.

  • I'm crazy skinny and I hate it for multiple reasons and one of them being I'm a literal cereal box. If I didn't have a waist I would be a rectangle. I'm size AAA and I can never wear clothes with a cut lower than three inches from my neck, I can't dance sexily or flirt because my body looks the same as when I was 8. My mom tells me every summer, "They'll grow over the summer and you'll go back to school all curvy!" but they never do.

    • Well, you are only 16 and I actually had a friend of mine who was an A cup until she was 27 and she suddenly grew into an F cup. So maybe you’re just a late bloomer? But even if you aren’t, you’re still beautiful and there was a point in history where all women wanted small boobs 😃

    • No its genetic. My mom, both grandmas, and both aunts have small breasts, about a B. My sister Is the only exception with around a C?

    • you're right! they say though u inherit mostly from ur father's mom's side more!!

  • Don’t compare yourself to others. Most of the people that you come in contact with are on a different path or at a different stage of life than you are. Try to celebrate others’ happiness, bodies, accomplishments, and good fortune instead of comparing them to your own.

  • If your having trouble finding clothes that fit. Try looking up Women's Bespoke Clothing. The prices are not outrageous and can be tailor made to your exact measurements.
    There are several places that do this. Just search for the one that you like the most, and within your price range. The places I go charge about as much I would pay in a department store. But, they fit perfectly.

  • I’m a guy and little did I think I would grow boobs soo big. I’m a 34 C cup. And my god the accuracy. Clothes for guys are so straight like they never take into account the chest area it’s like all guys have pancake tittys to conpanies. I’ll find a nice sweatshirt great but oh wait my bust is just too big in them.
    Then there's comfort with boobs my size there’s always rubbing against fabric it hurts.
    Running? Hurts too.

  • Though I personally love how big boobs look, if I was a girl and could choose my proportions, I'd not sure I'd want big boobs for all the reasons you listed. From what you and many other women say, it sounds like a pain in the ass.

    The only ones who don't mind big boobs AT ALL are porn stars... but even then, those are just actors. Maybe in day to day normal life even they have trouble.

    • 100% agreed. The less clothing people have to buy, the better. I don't think women like bras necessarily. Unless into fashion, it's just a chore I'm sure. And even so, the sizing and paying issues are likely never fun. But let's look at us men for a second. Who owns the bra fashionista of the world? Who decides pricing and rules companies involved with it? Really, it SHOULD be women since it's a woman's issue, but it seems it's often men. That's like women trying to decide how urinals should be installed. Or in charge of thick beard shaving companies. It makes no sense. I think women should fully rule women's fashion while men rule theirs. Of course, some women will be greedy and continue selling bras anyways, so that's why no matter who runs clothing companies, the common people, men and women work to eliminate bras and whatever other clothing. Demanding that prices not be abusive either.

  • Your post was funny and informative. by the way. I understand that you don't want to always show off your boobs, and can't help but show them off many times. Guys know you can't help it, and don't look at you as someone who is trying to flash the world, or entice the world. While we like the way you look, just as we like the way a girl with a nice face or a nice ass looks, we know you are much more than your boobs, just as they are more than whatever assets they have. Guys don't see you as just boobs, and see you as a person, much more often than you realize.

    • Big boobs have and will always be ideal! They are nature's blessing! they look great in clothes and are the ultimate sign of femininty! get outta here with your flat chested jealous self!!!
      Small breasts are like a fat/obese girl. Big breasts are like a skinny/curvy girll. Society sees it as totally wrong and unnacceptable to publicly make fun of and call out fat girls, right? No one would tell their fat friend "hey, you need to lose some weight fatty!" but society doesn't see it as such a problem to poke fun (even mean "fun") at skinny girls. I've heard so many people say to skinny girls "You need a sandwich or something". Now, we shouldn't be trying to hurt anyone's self esteem. Fat girls don't want to be made fun of but neither do skinny girls. It's only thought of as more "ok" to make fun of skinny girls because most skinny girls meet society's definition of attractive, and they know that. So, if you make fun of a skinny girl, it's going to hurt, but she can still walk away knowing

So, if you make fun of a skinny girl, it's going to hurt, but she can still walk away knowing that most of society finds her attractive so it'll probably affect her self esteem less. If you insult a fat girl, it's going to hurt A LOT more because she's going to walk away knowing that she does NOT meet society's ideal and that most people aren't going to find her attractive. It cuts a lot deeper. It's the same thing for boobs. It's more OK to put down big breasts because at the end of the day, big breasts are society's ideal of beauty and everyone knows this. If you insult a small breasted woman, it hurts a lot more because she already knows her breasts are undesirable by society's standards, and having someone reinforce this is painful. Making fun of big chested women or trying to put them down usually either (a) comes from a place of jealousy. Many small breasted females feel inadequate and to cope with that they'll put down or throw underhanded digs at well endowed women to try and make themselves feel better or (b) when it's guys, they're usually white knights (look it up) trying to boost the self esteem of small breasted women at the expense of the women who have been blessed with more assets <<(why do you think they're called assets! They're obviously a good thing!)

I was the biggest chest for a few years but most of my friends are much much bigger in that department now. I don’t think breasts are ugly I’m just really active and it’s get in the way. But I never thought about it from a attention grabbing POV... just a practical one.
