Tits Mcgee



Today I'm doing a post about something a bit different; My tits! Seriously having big boobs is the actual bane of my life. For many different reasons.
  • Clothing. I can never find clothes that fit me properly, being an 'E' cup and a size 10-12, and only 5'2, I look dumpy and out of proportion. There are so many different styles of clothes that I can't wear because my boobs make it look ridiculous. Smock tops and maxi dresses make me look huge. I can never find fitted button up shirts, I usually have to get a size 18 or even 20 and then it doesn't fit me anywhere else. 
  • Underwear. Big bras = Ugly bras. Unless I am willing to spend around £40 on each bra, and I just can't afford that. High street chains like Primark have got a bigger range, but there is a really small selection, and they are usually really ugly. Matching sets that come together are a no-no, as the pants are never the right size.
  • Backache and Posture.  I have recently realised that my posture isn't the best. I tend to haunch forward a bit because of the weight and the fact that my bra straps dig in to my shoulders. I also get back pain when I stand up for long amounts of time, and being a Chef that is my job! 
  • Comments and Presumptions. People do stare, 'lads' (you the type..) make stupid, thoughtless comments and some men I have worked with think it's OK to call me 'tits.' If i had a massive arse people wouldn't say to my face 'Wow your arse is massive' so I'm not sure it's justified to make comments about my chest. Once in a club, somebody thought it was OK just to grab them.
Over the years though, I have figured out some staple rules for dressing a big chest;
  •  Stay away from high-waisted shorts and trousers. They draw so much attention to the chest area, and can make you look really top-heavy.
  • V-Necks are the most flattering. This is because the V-neck line draws attenion to your neck and face, and breaks up the expanse of the chest. Obviously choose a V-neck that is not too revealing.
  • Avoid Polo Necks and high round necks. They are so unflattering for larger chests. and make breasts look saggy and distorted.
  • Wrap dresses and cardies are flattering. These are flattering as they draw attention to the waist area, and pull breasts forward.
  • Dresses that are cinched in at the waist flatter a big bust. Again, as they draw attention to the waist area.
Now i can't say I follow these rules all the time, as sometimes I'll fall in love with an item of clothing and forget about what actually suits me! Do you have bigger breasts too and struggle to buy clothes?

  1. I have nowhere near a huge bust like you - but even things I put on sometimes makes me look about 10 sizes bigger! Less is sometimes definitely more ;)

  4. Aww that must be really frustrating! Would you ever consider getting a breast reduction? Seeing as it's affecting your posture and causing you pain =/

  5. I hate that there is a size that we are meant to be to wear clothing, they don't make clothes for people with bigger or no breasts. I don't really have any breasts and even size 6 clothing hangs below my bra and I don't want to have to wear a vest under nice tops like a child, when I was younger I was a size 10 but I felt the need to lose weight as nothing coverd my bra. I personaly like my chest but other people constantly ask me if I'm going to have a boob job when I'm older then ask me why and look at me like I am mad when I say no.. It angers me. Sorry for the rant haha, but yeah I get how you feel about clothes.x

  6. I am exactly the same having a big chest and being 5 ft 3 myself does make me look disproportional, I also makes it hard to run!!!
