Really? It is weird but I hope she's happy with her new boobies because I would!

his is a link to the K-Mart bra that is just like the Bali one: Clothing, Toys, Electronics, Jewelry, Jaclyn Smith - Kmart.com.

You know how Whirlpool makes most appliances for other companies, to their specifications and puts the other's label on them? I have to wonder if Bali or whoever, doesn't do the same thing for lingerie.

Yeah. She looks good- proportionate. Now I'm the one that needs a wheelbarrow to haul mine around. Mine is just because I'm fat.

@Justthe6ofus: I worry about the loosing sensation too , but most importantly about not being able to breasfeed. I'm still weighing whether or not to wait after having kids ( which is not someting planned yet) so we'll see. You're lucky you have such a nice shape! My hips are not that wide to make up for my big boobs but once they'll get reduced to a B , my body will be prefect!

@SouthernbelleinUtah: Really? I didn't know that. K-mart here I come!

@Roselvr: Thank you


Thank you for all of your answers! I really appreciate that
I'm pretty sure a few that had it done posted in the thread I linked to; so it's worth reading. You can always start on the last page 1st lol

I've often thought what it would be like not to have large breasts on a small frame. I've come to the conclusion that I would miss them. They've been a part of my body and identity for so long now, that they are part of my life. My name is Sasha. I have large breasts.

Oh ok that's why did she loose weight? Because some women have more fatty breast tissue than dense breast tissue so they loose the breast weight as they are loosing weight.

Default Decision

I have chit chat with one of the surgeon assistant as I was calling for a consultation appointment.
She has advised me to wait as I am planning for kids in the future ( My husband and I are getting it on tonight!) Lol just kidding! But chances are my breasts will grow back again during my pregnancy and I might not be able to breastfeed (which I want to be able to do). Guess I'm going to have to suck it ; loading myself with minimizer bras and underwire swimsuits! As much as I hate my breasts I have to be grateful that they are healthly and that's really all that should matter.......for now until I get rid if them!.
Thank you to all of you who replied. I really appreciated it

It goes without saying that if you do not want to look like a hooker, do not dress like one. See here (you may not like the actual garments, but pay attention to the principles):

Women's Fashion Tips for Big Busts: Dress, Top, Jacket, Swimwear and Bra Styles for Your Body Shape

This company is British, but it gives you an idea what to look for in swimwear:

Bravissimo | Big Bras, Lingerie, Swimwear and Clothing for D-KK cup women

The women I know who have had reductions were overall satisfied with their procedures. Not being able to exclusively breast feed can be a problem. However, many women who have never had breast surgery can have problems nursing, too. Another problem is that some women have breast enlargement with pregnancy that persists after delivery. One option would be to delay the surgery until after child bearing is complete. Only you can tell whether that is an option for you personally.

That response really irratated me. Obviously, you've never dealt with large breasts. The OP stated she has large breasts, and most of us burdened with that have done the 'right bra', and 'been fit' many years ago and many time over. That's all I'm going to say, other than if you haven't lived with it then you don't know what you're talking about.

To the OP: Tears nearly welled in my eyes when I read your post, because I know exactly what you are experiencing with the boob jokes, being stared at, being treated like you're promiscuous, not being able to find swimsuits that fit your breasts that don't make you look like something your granny would wear, having button down shirts that always pop open (unless you pin them) and having a very limited choice of summer clothes.

I've lived it, and I wish I had of had the money for a breast reduction at a young age. I'm 5'7" and was always slim, athletic, and fit. I was/is attractive and having big breasts simply drew men to think that they could speak to you like you're a hoe, it brouht out the most goofy, juvenile, and rude traits in a man, and I frankly became quite quick with come back cut downs.

After I take care of a foot surgery, I intend to try and get insurance to pay for a breast reduction. I figure it will be a big battle, but I've been reading about how some other women have approached it.

I fully understand how you feel, and recommend you go with the breast reduction if you have the money to do it. It doesn't matter what ANYONE else thinks. They don't live with it. You do. So, young lady, you do what is best for you. And good luck.
