Well, I followed your tip and checked our herroom.com too. I ordered some items and I'm crossing my fingers that they work out. If not the return process seems relatively painless. I didn't find too much in my preferred size that was affordable and not a sports bra but I did find some in the size that I usually have to settle for that the reviews said ran small. So I'm thinking those might work. One is even a sexy set. I have been looking for lingerie that might fit forever! Thanks! I'll let you guys know if any of it works out.


ailurophile
Not sure if you ladies knew this: Victoria's Secret carries Intimissimi ....AND their semi-annual sale just started ...AND they have free shipping on orders of $100 or more for those of you who are not as lucky as I am happy.gif to have a Vickie's in your area.

I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a merry one!

Vendetta, I want to lose a few pounds, and I'm scared that will happen. Though I don't know how much smaller they can get. I tell myself that i could at least have some nice abs if I am gonna have small breasts. Not that my abs are bad I just think they could be better. There's not much I can do for the boobs though.

Is anybody else kinda filled out but still have small breasts? My weight just kinda goes mostly to my thighs.
Vendetta
One thing is for sure: when I put on some weight, it goes to my butt and thighs and never to my breasts. The only way they get bigger is with BC pills. But when I lose weight, my breasts are the first ones to go. My bras don't fit me anymore on a scandalous way. When I move my arms the band moves with them. It's unconfortable. And almost all that's left are nipples. Argh. Nearly A-cup to AAA-cup in two months. I don't deserve this!
strongirl
Honeybunch, in terms of the abs/boobs thing, I encourage you to work out. I started doing upper body workouts in the gym several years ago with my bf and I love the results, both visually and in terms of increased strength and power. I used to have stick arms, bony shoulders, and with tiny boobs my chest looked like a washboard. Not only did I not show cleavage in low cut tops, I showed bones! You could see ribs and my breastbone running down the center.

Since then, I've added a lot of muscle up top, there's a lot less bone showing, and my abs are defined. Here's a good story that small breasted chicks should enjoy. I went skydiving with my bf, his daughter and her girlfriend, and his ex. His ex has large breast implants which she put in during the time they were breaking up. The skydiving company was mostly buff guys in their twenties. Afterward, his daughter and her friend were teasing me about the fact that all the guys were lusting after me behind my back. Apparently they liked my abs (I was wearing a sports bra and lowcut cargo pants) and one guy kept saying he wanted to lick my stomach! Meanwhile, they referred to my bf's ex as "mom". This is one experience that fuels my perception that big implants can make a woman look "matronly".

I know this story sounds tacky and like I'm competitive with my bf's ex, who I happen to really like and admire. But I think the feedback on toned muscles versus big implants is relevant to this forum.

ailurophile
Honeybunch and Vendetta:
I would like to lose a few more pounds but won't because I will lose more breast tissue. I have put some weight back on. Guess where!!! My butt and belly. It goes there first. When they are larger and out of shape, it then goes to my breasts...after the fact. My boobs were bigger when I weighed 20 more pounds of course. I didn't lose my boobs until the last five pounds and then I was angry that I lost that last five. I guess you gotta take the bad with the good. My bf didn't know me when I was bigger... butt, belly and boobs. So guess I'll stay as is; it's not like he's missing anything. Like I said, I want to lose more, but I will just try to tighten things because if I lose more, my boobs will be smaller. Not good for my self esteem. It's not like you could tell through clothes but they looked and felt fuller and it was little more for my man to grab onto.

Fun story, Strongirl.
honeybunch
Vendetta, that's how it is with me,too. In addition I do some dance for cardio which uses a lot of lower body strength. So I kinda have dancer's thighs. I don't have a problem with that, I've been told I have killer legs. However, it can be tricky finding things that fit my lower and upper halves.

Strongirl, cute story! I've been trying to tone up a little around the middle. Actually, I have lost a bit around the middle already. Woohoo!

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/12/28/...289_468x484.jpg

i had a rare find of a bra actually in my size that was unpadded. i put it on and marvelled at the wonder of what a well-fitting bra can do. ok so from some angles i still looked like a 12 year old but i chose to ignore that minor detail....

one of my aunts bought me an underwear set for xmas. in a B cup haha. i was too embarassed to say it was too big so its kind of lurking in my room right now, taunting me

i thought about building my upper body up at the gym abit but im unsure at the effect it would have on my boobs. i thought it might make them look more boobish cos even the male body builders look like they have breasts rightt. but then i realised i wouldnt be that extreme so maybe it wouldnt have the same effect and would just burn off any boob fat i do have instead, leaving me with even less shape rather than more
edie52
Ooh, she's lovely, starship. Despite the ill-fitting denim skirt.

I don't have any advice about working out- I don't do it regularly. However, my body is more toned than it was when I was a teenager (thanks to waitressing, and city living that involves tons of biking and walking), and I think it's way sexier. When I wear summer outfits it's all about the back and shoulders and arms (and nipples!) making up for the lack of cleavage. Love me some collarbone, too.
Vendetta
I miss the way I had fun with padding and almost cleavage in tops.. now I have to be covering the bra which is trying to pop out of my clothes all the time. I don't want to put on weight though because my belly is sexier this way so at least I have something that amuses me but oh well.. I lost these pounds in not such a good way so it's going to be easy as hell to put them back again. I should exercice, I can't wait to be able to go to the gym. I know I'll love my body when toned, which is not. I'm out of shape and my hundreds of stretch marks are there to remind me that I should take care of myself more. I drink too much, I smoke too much, I don't sleep too much and all I eat is sh*t.

Sounds like this thread had a visit from Smoove B.

Dude you are gross and reported. Get the fuck out of Bust before we hurt you.
honeybunch
Well, at least he's honest.
kittenb
Is it honesty that true sexiness comes from knowing how to use your pussy?
ailurophile
Not sure if he was trying to comfort us or if he's just a pervert with all the p*ssy talk. Maybe he meant well, however, I don't really want to hear that breast size doesn't matter or that they are a secondary sexual feature. I see my guy check out breasts and not chicks like Gwen Stefani, in which case I'd cheer him on. I am working on my self esteem and want/need to hear that little tits are hot and sexy, not that they do not matter.
Vendetta
To me he's a perv. In my opinion any guy who posts on a small breast support group is wrong. And coming to a small breast support group talking about pussy is just disgusting. Get the f*ck out of here.
auralpoison
I don't come in here much, but this guy chapped my fuckin' hide & I ain't had a good retard to fuck with since Funk ran away with his tail between his legs & his c&b drawn up into his body for protection.

Wow, so you don't really need the *woman*, you just need her box & for her to know how to use it to please YOU? Our thoughts, our feelings, our breasts & other erogenous zones are meaningless as long as we have male friendly personalities & our coochies are up to male inspection & have a confident kungfu grip? Our sexuality has nothing to do with us/our pleasure or what we need, like, or want, we're just moist fleshy bits to please men? Go buy a fleshlight, asshat.

I doubt he was trying to cause harm, he's just your typical superior MWET, "I stumbled upon this site & thought I would impart my vast knowledge to the betterment of these clueless women's lives". He likely didn't read the thread & just thought that his wisdom would solve all your problems without him even knowing what your actual issues are. Because, y'know, our breasts are only color to attract men & men are always the key to happiness to every woman on earth. We're all desperate & lonely without a man? Right?

That was how Funk started in the large breast thread. Telling us we should love our bodies & not alter them because some guy out there was just waiting for us just as we are. Because that's all we're all waiting for, Mr. Right. He didn't read the thread or understand the issues, he went straight for female fulfillment through the love of a "good man" & offered up his male-oriented expertise on a non-male issue.

I don't know why they seem to think that we will only find fulfillment if we have a mate. And why do they always assume it's gotta be a guy? Lots of ladies love ladies. And some of us prefer to be alone & doing our own thing.

Basically, P Lover Ray (Clever name BTW, fuckstick. I'd have put you on ignore even if I hadn't seen your post because that's a totally obvious d-bag name.), what I'm trying to say is that until you have tits, STAY OUT OF THE TIT THREADS. It's not your bailiwick, boy.
purplestain
Did anyone else imagine P Lover Ray's post being spoken totally deadpan, with a ridiculous Arabic/Romanian/Eurotrash accent? I did, and it was so funny I didn't even care how inane it was.

"Take off all off jhoor clotss. Lay on top of ze bed viz your legs spread ehparrt. Ven I look at joo, I vill neizher know nor care iff jhoo haff breasts." Come on. That's hilarious.

See, in my mind's eye I saw a lispier, white version of this guy. But I can see the Eurotrash, Eastern bloc guys, too.

I did like the Smoove B ref, though Smoove actually realizes that women have more than one erogenous zone. Plus he will wine you, dine you, & hand feed you the finest chocolate before he breaks you off doggie style in his bathroom.

purplestain that's gorgeous! i dunno what it is about the uk but it seems so hard to find 'bralettes'. infact i hadnt evenn heard the word until i came on here with you american busties. im so jealous because i always see such pretty lacy ones on the american sites i look at. even the offerings of the uk urban outfitters doesnt quite compare to the lovely ones ive seen on the US version:(

i skipped the inbetween week of my bcp to avoid an annoying christmas-time period and so my boobs are feeling super heavy n swollen at the mo'. i was abit excited about having some clevage for new years eve until i remembered id already picked out a mini dress that goes right upto my collar bone. so a lot of discomfort and not really any benefits right now

I know that I should either take this to the "Outside" thread or ignore it alltogether but I just CAN'T! So I apologize for derailing.

Ray (and something tells me that you will be back to read the responses) you are a total fucking moron. Absolute and total idiot. Do you expect us to thank you for explaining how the FEMALE body works? We have them, we have some idea what feels good to them. And as for the PC excersizes, yes most of us, even the more "sensitive" members of this "liberated" forum, are aware of them. However, it kills me that you repeat a good personality is important but then fetishize the pussy to the point that, well, I would rather be with SmooveB than be with you. At least there would be chocolate before the butt-sex.

You missed every point that was made here and had you spend even 5 minutes looking beyond the word "breast" in this thread to see the rest of the Bust board you would have realized that there is nothing that you could offer a single member of this community.

Go away you freak of nature.

So much love for everyone else in this board. AP, you slay me!

pollystyrene
Oh, you girls are hilarious. I don't even know where I fit in on the small/large spectrum (44C, so small-side-of-large cup size, but small for my band size, as is apparent when I try to shop for this weird size!) but the freakazoids these threads attract and the response they get never fail to amuse me! laugh.gif
edie52
Yeah, and furthermore, is it supposed to make us feel good to hear you talk about all of these "unsexy" women in the grocery store who have men who like them enough because of their magical combination of pussy and personality to be seen in public with them? You're implying that you see regular human couples as unsexy woman/"normal" man, and that is pretty fucking sexist.
mynameislala
Oh Lord... men just don't get it, do they?

EVERYTHING IS NOT ABOUT YOU!!!!!

We're NOT bummed because our small breasts keep us from having men in our lives. Come on, read our posts and you'll realize most of us HAVE a man. We could have many men, or women. It's not about that.

What it is about, is about femininity. Big breasts (not huge porno bolt ons, but normal natural ones) look feminine, they look like a woman. Most of us expected to get breasts at puberty not to attract boys, but to look womanly, to feel like our mothers, grandmothers, aunts or other role models. We wanted them to feel like we had grown up and were sassy and independent. It's a symbol of womanhood, of adulthood, not of sex appeal alone.

Yes, we also like them because they're sexy. We'd all like to be able to wear those gorgeous bras that create amazing cleavage. Why? So we can blow a man's mind? No!!! Because, again, it's a symbol of womanhood and that is sexy. We like feeling sexy for ourselves. When you are a woman, and you look in the mirror and feel sexy for YOURSELF, it's like this warm excited feeling running within you. We just like feeling sexy in our own skin. We like to look at a gorgeous bra or top and think "Hey, I'd look HOT in that". And then you wear it and you look hot in it, and you feel good with yourself. You can have 1000 men leering at you, but if you don't feel sexy with yourself, if you don't feel womanly enough, those men are nothing, they don't even exist. Because it's not about men, our lives don't function around pleasing men. It's all about self confidence. It's like wanting to make love to yourself, in some way.

Which leads me to the next point. We don't live to pleasure men. We don't have sex to pleasure men. NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT PLEASURING MEN! Or do you want me to go to the kitchen already? Go jerk off if that's how you think. But sex is about two people. It's about both getting and giving pleasure. Unless you've watched too many pornos... which leads to the final point...

I HATE when men refer to the vagina as pussy. But that's just me...
auralpoison
AP, waxing chumps from way back! Been dingoed twice, but keeps coming back for more!

OMG! I just laughed so hard a little pee came out of my sacred place. Just a little, though. And that pee was a gift from just above the holiest of hole-ys

Is it not uncanny that the "sensitive males" all sound EXACTLY the same? I mean, how many times have we heard this schtick? "I'm sooooo misunderstood!" No, dude, we get it. We totally do. You're the one that isn't grokking things. This thread has nothing to do with pussies. As far as I know, there are no "Big cunt" or "Little cunt" threads BECAUSE WE ARE OKAY WITH OUR FINE CHINA! WE LOVE OUR PUSSIES & KNOW HOW TO USE THEM!

PLR, you completely dismissed the topic of this thread & went on with great largesse about something that wasn't event remotely relevant to the women that post here. Apples/oranges, pussies/breasts. They may both still be fruit, but . . . You just rambled on with your masturbatory revelations about what you consider female attractiveness to be. WHICH ISN'T WHAT THIS THREAD IS ABOUT. This thread is about having small breasts & the drama that goes with it. Yes, there is some insecurity. But there are also inquiries about buying a good bra. There are sexy pictures of girls in pasties. Finding a swimsuit that fits both on top & on bottom. There are all kinds of things going on here that you don't understand because you don't have boobs. *And* because you didn't bother to READ THE GODDAMNED THREAD TO HAVE SOME BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IT'S ABOUT, you came off like a douche. You just spouted off your hairbrained theories as fact. Yeah, they're facts . . . to YOU. But they hold little water here. I've a thimble here somewhere's . . . perhaps you could put your wisdom there. No, wait! I found a shriveled contact lens!

ETA, big ups to Edie for pointing out the whole sexist mentality of "ugly" women in the supermarket with boyfriends. I couldn't even wrap my mind around how to say that as eloquently as you did, so I just ignored it! Bra-fuckin'-vo!

And Lala, too.

And I love you, too KittenB!

What does MWET stand for?


kittenb
I think Pollystyrene brought MWET to Bust. It means: Men Who Explain Things.
lightchested
This is to P Lover Ray, or Kegel Boy, or whatever your name is...

Today my small breasts are affecting me thusly:

1) While taking a shower this morning, I had to ignore all the lumps that are so palpable in my breasts due to the largeness of lump size relative to my small breast size. I had to try to push the fear of cancer out of my mind and remind myself that since having lost 40 pounds (and consequently a substantial amount of breast fat) my fibrocystic lumps are going to be more palpable, and are not necessarily an indication of cancer. I have to also push out of my mind my Bi-RADS rating from an MRI I had done 2 years ago, and convince myself that it only indicated such a high probability of a cancerous lump in my right breast because I have such small, dense breasts, and that MRIs are typically not indicated for reliable screenings of small breasts.

2) I put on my Calvin Klein bralette, size small/petite (to fit my breasts) but am dealing with the pain of the straps digging into my shoulders, since Calvin Klein apparently believes that those with small breasts have small bodies. I am a tall adult woman, and my small breasts do not reside 3 inches below my shoulders. This bralette's non-adjustable shoulder straps are killing me. I suppose if I could have bought the medium or large sized bralette, the straps would probably be longer, for the designer would have assumed a larger (adult) body to go with the medium or large sized boobs. But I can't buy the medium or large sized bralette because I have very small breasts on my tall adult body. And so my shoulders are getting new ridges in them that will serve as canals should I decide to turn my head to either side and start crying about my small breasted plight.

3) My pretty pink sweater with rhinestone zipper (size small) is wrinkling all over my boobs, since its designer clearly expected that whoever wore this garment would have more significantly sized flesh mounds in that area than do I. I look like a child wearing her mother's "fancy grownup clothes". But they are my clothes. And they don't come any smaller, so I just have to walk around looking like I am playing dress-up.

Now, my question to you, P Lover Ray, is this:
How will Kegel exercises improve my small breasted plight in any of the above-mentioned scenarios?
1) Will developing my Kegel muscles make my breast lumps go away? Will tightening them make me forget my fears of breast cancer?
2) Will better Kegel muscles lengthen the straps of the Calvin Klein small/petite bralette?
3) Can I Kegel my way to a wrinkle-free New Year's Eve sweater?

These are not the only challenges I have with my small breasts, by any means! But they are the ones that are most affecting me today. And as far as I know, no amount of tightening my p**** is going to assist in overcoming any of these challenges.

What you posted on this board is very insulting to us. It is closed-minded and egotistical. It assumes that we view our breasts as sex toys, and they are so much more than that to us. Your posts were degrading.
bottleblack
Treehugger I'm totally a 38B as well, and bra sizes always stop at 36 B!!
treehugger
Yep...once you get to 38, the smallest cup size is a C.... smile.gif Sport bras work well for me, but it'd be nice to have options. I can sort of wear a 36 C if it's one of those kind of "formed" ones so it doesn't wrinkle over my breasts. but it digs into my ribs and doesn't fit me right...blah. And a 38 C is WAYYYY out of my league. heh.

Oh my God, lightchested!

Every word you wrote is so true. Having breasts is so much more than just filling out tops, or looking hot in bed.

Your post was beautiful. I wish every man and women (because so many women ignore the fact that breasts are more than sexy "funbags"), would consider everything that comes along with having breasts (of any size). You could even say that aesthetics is the least important concern!

Breasts are just like any other organ. They have to be taken care of. They need the proper fit. They are definitely not FUN bags sometimes. I wish more people would realize that.

Again, great post.
strongirl
Nice perspectives re. breasts being so much more than "funbags" (geez, I hate that term! The visual it calls up for me is truly disgusting.)

I have gotten much sexual pleasure out of my little breasts over the years but certainly their high point as far as I'm concerned was in providing sustenance for my son. Breastfeeding was a truly mind-blowing, wonderful experience for me. When I looked at my six-month-old baby, round and fat and healthy as could be and fed with nothing but my own breastmilk, I felt a very deep satisfaction and pride and gratitude to my breasts. And don't ever think that small-breasted women produce less milk. I could have fed half of Denver.

We've rarely touched on it in here but I think one of the greatest harms of our culture's emphasis on breasts as sexual objects for men is that women are afraid to nurse their own babies for fear it will hurt their appearance and lessen their sexual appeal. That is so wrong and sad.

Here's to breasts: life-giving, sexy, and powerful, at any size.
lightchested

Strongirl (or anyone who has breast fed, or knows that they want to),

Please don't be offended by this question: it's something I've wondered for a long time and hope I can ask it here.

I am very curious about this breastfeeding thing. Did you feel like it would be a great experience before you did it, or did you only find out it was great after you did it?

I ask because all my life it's seemed like it would be nothing but a nuisance. Am I missing some critical female DNA or something? What's wrong with me? All I can think of is, if they sell it in cans, already whipped up & ready to go, wouldn't that be easier? Am I the ultimate lazy-ass? Why do I feel this way?

Is my inability to understand the joy of this altruistic behavior linked with the fact that I've spent the last 20 years of my life playing video games? Have I become so reliant on pressing a button for instant problem resolution (e.g. to jump on an enemy octopus's leg, rendering it useless, to assure my survival) that I cannot see the merits of putting real life time and effort into nourishing the life of an infant?

I am a feminist, but I just don't get the whole breast-feeding thing, given there is an "opt out" method sold in most grocery stores. Also, I am not much into camping, given that there are plenty of hotels available almost anywhere one wants to travel. Maybe I just always take the easy way out.

God I'm lazy.
bottleblack
Well lightchested, I am not a mother nor an expert. But I work in childcare with infants and toddlers and have seen both sides of the spectrum. Formula can be easier, in some regards. But I think a lot of women choose to breastfeed because of the strong research indicating the extreme health benefits of breast milk compared to formula. Emotionally, physically, intelectually, it is a far better choice. It is nutritionally exactly what a newborn needs, without the preserving chemicals and other things that are added to powder milk. To some, this is worth all the hurdles of breastfeeding. But also I think breastfeeding is often actually more convenient. If you are travelling, for example, no need to lug around big containers of formula, sterilize bottles in boiling water, measure out scoops of powder, heat up bottles. Just whip out a boob instead.
One more plus for breastfeeding is also the cost factor. I'm not sure about the U.S but here in Canada containers of formula do not come cheap! The large ones are often almost $30 and last only a few weeks. It's more than a lot of families can afford.
Hormonally, breastfeeding can also help the body heal more quickly after childbirth, helping cue the uterus to resume its normal size, and even helping the body use up preganancy weight because of all the calories it burns. It has also been shown to reduce chances of breast cancer if women have breast fed.
But those are just a few reasons! tongue.gif
auralpoison
Just for the record, I refused breast feeding. I was born two months premature, my mom pumped & I took it from a bottle, but when she tried to feed me at home? I spat that nipple out. I would drink it from the bottle, but refused the teat. To this very day I will not drink milk of any kind.

Formula is CRAZY expensive. My cousin works at the Kroger & has to deal with women trying to "return" stolen formula. They are required to make a hashmark with a marker on formula that was bought with WIC. Some shady sorts try to bring it back because it costs so much. $30 a can. That's a couple bindles of crack right there.
honeybunch
Lightchested, there are benefits of breastfeeding to moms as well. For instance, reduced risk of certain cancers, breastfeeding is good for bone health, and amenorrhea and decreased fertility esp. if mom nurses on cue.

Stongirl, I also hate thinking of breasts as just being "funbags." Last night I made the mistake of falling asleep with Spike TV on then waking up to Manswers. That show makes me wanna barf. Of course, i wake up just in time to hear ,"There's nothing we love more than big jugs" then proceed to show a woman with huge, inflated implants. They looked all hard it wasn't even a good boob job.

I used to be a 38A, and OMG it was just impossible to find bras.

Yes, we also like them because they're sexy. We'd all like to be able to wear those gorgeous bras that create amazing cleavage. Why? So we can blow a man's mind? No!!! Because, again, it's a symbol of womanhood and that is sexy. We like feeling sexy for ourselves. When you are a woman, and you look in the mirror and feel sexy for YOURSELF, it's like this warm excited feeling running within you. We just like feeling sexy in our own skin. We like to look at a gorgeous bra or top and think "Hey, I'd look HOT in that". And then you wear it and you look hot in it, and you feel good with yourself. You can have 1000 men leering at you, but if you don't feel sexy with yourself, if you don't feel womanly enough, those men are nothing, they don't even exist. Because it's not about men, our lives don't function around pleasing men. It's all about self confidence. It's like wanting to make love to yourself, in some way.

mynameislala HAVE SAID IT ALL.

Agreed.

I feel like if I had some sizable knockers, I'd feel like a woman, and consequently be able to enjoy sex. As it is, I just worry about how my boobs are looking or feeling. I spend the whole time while doing ANYTHING with a guy just worrying about keeping them as breastly as possible. I worry about becoming a big rib display- like some kid's science fair project.

It seems to me that if a woman had not-small breasts, she could just enjoy the moment and get into whatever was going on without constantly monitoring the goings-on in her chest area.

And she wouldn't feel compelled to do more than she really wanted to either. I hate that I do that!!!!!!!!

And guys would want to feel her boobs, so she could enjoy it when they did. I'd like to enjoy that! I'd like to believe that any guy would actually like to feel or in any way come in contact with my boobs.

I'd like a guy to spend a good deal of time in that area because he WANTED to, and not because he felt compelled to, in order to convince me that he doesn't mind my being small...but I guess I should feel lucky if a guy even cares enough to spend some time in that region for any reason, since some men have not done it even after I begged them to.

And I'd like it to be where the guy would be spending time in that area and I could enjoy it instead of feeling that horrible prickly fear or whatever it is that I get...like 'how bad is this for him?" and "I know he's going to stop any second now because he can't possibly be enjoying this, so I'd better not get used to it" and "I'd better not let myself feel good right now because then I'll miss it when he never does it again: now that he's felt them he surely won't bother again" and "this may be the last time any guy touches them in my entire life so I'd better enjoy it while I can."

So how can I enjoy sex type stuff when I'm feeling like THAT???

Blah

stupid boobs

I'm sick and tired of feeling pre-pubescent.

And this is why I have Spike TV deprogrammed from my TV's channel lineup. Along with the Golf Channel and Lifetime. Yuck.
