Third on that, nice to be able to get rid of that obnoxious gap between buttons! I was never looking for extra attention, spent 20 years occasionally considering a reduction, so I don't wear tight, formfitting clothes. Yay minimizers! I'm almost glad summer has come to an end around here, go to your local dept store and I'm the one you can hear hissing: "not everyone wants all of this padding!!" -while yet again, looking for the perfect swimsuit.

I am 'larger' busted. The LAST thing I want is for those to be prominent, pushed up, padded, 'out there'. Minimizers please with hefty comfortable shoulder straps.
I understand the concern here - I have dated women with large boobs & though I love them, just like you said the women have told me that they get "in the way" and that they've had back problems as a result (in some cases).

However, I implore women with big naturals to please never get breast reductions - despite the discomfort, rest assured that your boobs look great

I'm like those people who get brought on those makeover shows because they need help with a new look. LOL I'm pretty discreet with my body so I'm not going to overdo it with the cleavage thing

Plus..its only ONE certain person I want to look good for. And we are gonna be on vacation together with a bunch of other people
Seriously? OP, if you're a D, a paper bag would show off what you have. Only the blind could miss those. Most women that size avoid T-shirts because they actually exaggerate the look.

Lol....I would fall over if I had to carry D's around....that's pretty big already!

Stop wearing t-shirts, if you're trying to show off the girls!

If your shoulder straps are doing the work in holding your girls up, please do yourself a favor and get measured for proper size. I spent nearly 30 years wearing the wrong size bra and often looking bad in my outfits because I always thought the shoulder straps were supposed to hold things up. The majority of a bra's support is supposed to come from the band. A properly fitted bra will hold you up even with the straps not on; the straps are just there to help make things look correct. It made a world of difference once I figured out what my true size was and that the band measurement I'd been wearing for years was inches too big and cup size was multiple cups too small.

I imagine your natural size is pretty alluring as is.
Cup size doesn't mean someone bigger breasted ! Someone who a 36B can wear a 36D and in most cases fits them better. Cup size has more do with placement of one breasts, than their size.. Reason why it's so important get a professional bra fitting done. Most women are wearing the wrong size!

Ive read that wearing minimizers too much/all the time can be bad for you.

Oh come on. D is not that big at all. Fairly average actually.

100% Agreed!

It was a world of difference when I got the proper size. I didn't have to worry about readjusting my breasts all the time, and them falling out of the bottom! And of course clothing fit way way better as soon as I got the right size.

Also, about the gapping in button downs? It also has a lot to do with button placement. There are brand that make button downs for busty women!

I can't remember how many years I had to use a safety pin between those two buttons. Argh!
I, too, considered a reduction but now I feel too old (59) to bother. I don't want to go through the pain of recovery; I take a long time to recover from stuff.

..........

Umm... yeah, okay then. Just how much do you think one bra can minimize? I mean, it is not harmful or painful. But hey, please show us your reference.

**I just realized you may have been being sarcastic and it went over my head. Is that it??

Okay, this is enough bra and boob talk for me. Good luck OP in your search!
