It. Is. A. Night. Mare.
Back when I was a skinny mini around 18 years old, I was a DD which I was perfectly happy with!
Then when I got curvy and thicc as hell, I slowly went up to my current size which is F.
They are a bloody NUISANCE!
DD is still big but you can fit into normal clothes, normal bikinis and generally wear most things without causing parents to shield their children’s eyes and giving old men heart attacks.
Bigger though, and it is a serious challenge finding clothes for work that are still age appropriate and trendy, but aren’t wildly inappropriate in a professional environment. I have way too many high necks and turtle necks for any one person. One look at my closet without context and you’d think I was a middle aged librarian.
I gave up on bikinis years ago as I just straight up cannot enjoy myself wearing one anymore. Not only is it insanely difficult to find pretty, supportive ones for large sizes but even when you do find a gem – it looks like you’re in the cast of “Hustlers” and you simply cannot walk around carefree without the hair on your neck standing up from all the eyeballs staring at you.
It’s one pieces or nothing now, and even THOSE are inappropriate half the time.
Enjoy sleeping on your belly or sunbathing? Sucks to be you!
Parked in a tight spot and need to squeeze out? Good luck getting past your waist before getting lodged.
The gym is embarrassing and some things I actually cannot even do because it is physically impossible. Any kind of ab work outs or positions that involve a crunch-like situation I can’t do properly because my boobs legit stop me half way. Running? Well … i’m sure you can use your imagination, ya filthy animals.
The gym I go to has the treadmills right at the front of the building and the front is entirely made out of glass, so not only do the unsuspecting passerbys get an eyeful, but all the fellow runners in the reflection do, too.
Lastly, the very worst one, is how god damn expensive bras are for bigger sizes. If I want a sexy, pretty bra like most women in their early twenties – I will be paying a minimum of $70 for it. Only for it to BREAK mere months after purchase. I am THROWING money at these things. I am literally right this moment wearing a bra that broke today, and the wire is stabbing me in my sternum. That’s my life.
Yeah yeah yeah, I know that there are sexual benefits to having big boobs and all and I haven’t had any complaints so far, but I truly don’t think it is worth it.
Not nearly as glamorous as some of you were suspecting, I’m sure.
