Seriously I guess the only thing I could think of is surgery as I have the opposite problem with girls. I'm a 38B.
I am not interested in the possibility of taking home a staph infection along with smaller breasts. If you spend much time on this forum you know that the only way I would darken the door of a licensed medical physician was if my life was in danger, and even then, reluctantly. I certainly would not risk my life for something that is elective.

My philosophy is that with a little perseverance I can find a solution to my problem that does not involve doctors.

Sorry, no solutions from me, I am barely A, and that is after 4 kids. Sorry you have this problem. Have you seen a chiropractor? Maybe you also need to take some yoga classes, to improve your posture. I have noticed many large breasted women walk sort of "hunch backed" I don't know if this is because of the breast wieght, or what. But improving your posture, and increasing the muscles in your back and shoulders could not hurt. Work with a trainer on this, to find exercises to increase muscle strength in those areas.

None of that (very good) advice will help keep the straps from digging into her shoulders. They dig in because she's front-heavy and the weight has to be borne somewhere.

An underwire will help somewhat. A minimizer bra will also help somewhat because it will change the distribution of weight so it's not jutting forward; it's more - sloping, instead.

But yeah losing weight will help too, if you are overweight.

Yeah, losing weight is the key, I think. I will go from a 38DDD to a 38DD and that will make a big difference.

thanks for everybody's input

Getting a massage helps, even if there's nothing wrong.

I had the same issues but have started to go (mostly) braless. I have also strengthened my back muscles and lost a little weight. The weight training has also helped build up my chest muscles. I don't know how you can wear a bra 24/7 - I find bras sooooooo uncomfortable. I only wear a bra (loose-fitting at that) when I wear something knit or revealing somehow. I have a way of dressing cleverly to disguise the bra-lessness for the most part. And I also go out of my way to buy clothing with built-in support so I don't need the bra.

Good luck to you.
