Hey, I take offense to that. There is nothing nonsensical about the boobs!!

I'm happy you're happy.

I can kinda put myself in your shoes also. I guess it would be annoying if the breasts were hitting you in the chin as you jogged.

They don't even have to be hitting you in the chin! Just the pressure and pull of larger ones bouncing up and down as your run can hurt. I'm an average size and I still have to be careful with sports bras as to pick the specific types so I'm not in pain when I work out.

Original poster, I think you're nuts! I'm almost 5ft 7 in, had a great figure as a young woman, but always weighed a little more than you, maybe 135 in my late teens. I was always a 34B, and I thought that was just perfect - breasts just right. Large enough to be interesting in any situation, looked good in and out of clothing, not big enough to cause a problem while running, no backaches from too much chest weight. Do you feel miserably unattractive? Did you know that breast implants can affect nipple sensitivity and impede breast feeding? Why would you want to do this to yourself?

Yes, there are men who will be attracted to you for a large chest. But is this really who you want to be with, and how you want to be seen by the opposite sex?

Not to mention that it's expensive and painful. I'd say be happy with what you have - sounds like you have an amazing figure already.

Repped you for that just now - but to add: The whole nipple sensitivity is one of the reasons why I haven't seriously considered breast -reduction- surgery. I'm terrified that I'll be one of the few who lose that sensitivity. Since I'm not a mother, and don't breastfeed anyone, my breasts only serve one of their two primary functions. If I lose that, then there's really no point in having them at all.

I only read the first post, so here's my response. My wife has rather large breasts. Honestly, it's not why i married her, and that was about 2 feet lower. She was a 40 GG when my son was born. in 1994 she had a reduction to 36 C. They told her if she gained weight they could come back. She's a 38 DD, and or E (I buy her bras, because she so tight). Honestly, you are who you are, and if he don't like you for that, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN.

It's a reduction that can impede milk production because they remove tissue. Implants are highly unlikely to affect milk production.

Having a reduction affects cup size - not band size. GG to C. To go from a 40 band to a 36 you would need some extreme lipo or a season long appearance on The Biggest Loser.

Well shoot. See this presents a conundrum because bouncing boobs are a spectator sport.

But I really don't want anyone to be in pain. Can you just moderately strap them down so there is some movement and we are all happy?

Maybe you can strap down your man boobs and tell us how it works out for you after running a 10k?

I think it's funny reading all these comments guys have about preferring real t*ts to fake ones. I should know when to call BS. I am a guy and there is a bunch of it that has been posted.
