Has anyone ever thought about getting them? I've thought about it, but then my sense kicks in and tells me I'll regret it, yadda yadda.<br><br><br><br>

I've had a lot of issues with my breasts. My breasts recently got much bigger - I now fit into a 32A <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> Yes, my breasts got BIGGER to fit into that.<br><br><br><br>
I don't think I could ever do it though. I've thought about it, certainly, but because of all the dangers involved, I don't think I could do it.

Anyone thinking about it, please, please, please don't do it, not only because there are health risks in having foreign objects implanted in your body, but also because it saddens me that so many women buy into the media myth that big boobs make you sexier and somehow more womanly. I have several flat-chested or small-breasted friends who have never had any problems dating, and yet I with my large breasts began my first serious relationship at age 34. In real life I've just never noticed much correlation between a woman's breast size and whether men found her attractive. I mean look at movie stars like Gwenyth Paltrow who don't really have much in the chest area. Plus, smaller breasts are much more comfortable when exercising and don't sag as much as you get older. I dream of a world in which people (especially women, although men are increasingly obssessed with physical appearance as well) are satisfied with their bodies and can ignore arbitrary media ideals.

I would never get them. I think it's a pretty degrading procedure involving lots of pain. In the end, a lot of boob jobs don't look or feel real. I'm content with the size of my 34B chest, but, to each his own. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm small chested too. I've considered breast implants but I really don't think it's worth all that risk and money. I'd like bigger breasts more for practical reasons like there are so many clothes out there that require large chests. Then I think, why should I get an operation to conform with what the fashion industry thinks women should look like?<br><br>
I'm also worried about getting the implants done now and then what happens when I have children.<br><br>
There are many good things about small breasts like lack of pain when running.

Some might say I'm small-chested, but I feel that I am average or normal at a 32B, considering my size 0/2 figure. I have thought about implants...thought about the fact that I would never, ever get them. Number one, there are dangers involved. Number two, they look unnatural. Number three, if I have confidence problems, I need to do something beyond mutating my body to figure it out.

I could never do it. Mine are 34B and that's fine by me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

Research, research, research. In one of my classes we learned that the silicone ones were only engineered to last 5 years. But obviously people didn't plan to take them out after that long.<br><br>
When I really want to have cleavage, I have done things like use nice push ups or even duct tape (for more theatrical outfits). They have great inserts that feel like the real thing if you need a little extra. Perhaps wear some large inserts and then go to an aerobics class to see some of the advantages of being small.<br><br><br><br>
Also, things like gaining weight have increased mine. You are young, and if you go on the pill, gain weight, have children, or possibly just with age, there may be changes. I am often jealous of the perkiness of smaller breasts that keep their shape in more positions than mine ever could. And to my disappointment, I've had more guys say they prefer smaller ones. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I have naturally large breasts (40DD) and haven't thought about implants, but I have thought about a breast lift. I know it seems shallow, but I do feel self concious about them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/"> I don't want unnaturally perky breasts, but I would like to be able to wear a bra comfortably again and have less back pain.

I don't think breast size is really that big of a deal; I think the issue is magnified in the minds of women as being more important to men than it really is. I think if we made a poll, asking the men of VB what size they like boobies at, we'd probably get a wide variety of responses. Also, you know, breasts generally correlate with the size of your body; so if you're skinny, they're going to be smaller, and there isn't anything wrong with it because they're in proportion to the rest of you.

My feelings about my breasts have nothing to do with men and/or what they might think of them, never will.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: And I say this because I can't help but note that what men think has been mentioned several times, and I have no idea why. The breasts are yours, ladies; it's your body. I don't see why people give a damn what a stupid walking penis thinks.

I don't know where you get that idea. I wear a 36D and it seems to me most clothes are designed with a B cup in mind. Any outfit that is cut so that the breasts are supposed to fit in a specific space, like a top with little triangles (a lot of dresses have this), or an empire waist etc. my breasts simply will not fit in the allotted space. They didn't even when I was a C cup. I also have a problem with most button up shirts. The buttons gap over my breasts even when the rest of the shirt fits fine. I end up buying shirts that are baggy around the waist and don't look neat and tailored at all just so it will fit over my breasts. Then there's the quandry of bras. I need very supportive bras with unnatractive thick straps and uncomfortable underwires. I end up wearing ugly grandma bras, but the worst part is the straps and underwires dig into my skin and are painful. Yeah Victoria's secret and other nice places make fancy D-cup bras, but they aren't supportive enough. My breasts fall out of them and end up all over the place.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, my point is being large chested is not all it's cut out to be. If you want your breasts to look bigger, you can always wear a bra with padding or one of those gel insets or a push up. If you are large chested and you want your breasts to look smaller there's not much you can do about it. Enjoy the flexibility of smaller breasts. You can go without a bra if you want or you can wear pretty much any kind of bra. You can get cleavage with a push up or gel bra but you don't have to worry about breasts getting in the way while exercising. You can wear all kinds of clothes including strapless or spaghetti strap shirts that I would never be able to wear because I need a big bulky bra to support me.

I wear a 34 DD. I have a narrow rib cage but a large cup size and I can't stand them. If anything I've thought about getting them smaller.<br><br><br><br>
Victoria's Secret bras are the worst bras ever in my opnion. As Carblover pointed out, they are not supportive at all. I order most of my bras online from a place that specializes in sporty type bras for larger sized women. I really wish I could just go to Target or K-mart and get their cheap bras.<br><br><br><br>
I am also a runner and it bugs the hell out of me knowing that they are bounching all over the place. Plus, I think they make me look fat. If I wear a shirt that is not form fitting then it makes me look really big.<br><br><br><br>
Oh well. There is nothing I can do about them so I guess I just need to accept them.

That's odd... my mom wears a d cup and loves her cotton VS bras.

Don't do it. Love and acceptance for your body comes from inside, not from alterations to it.<br><br><br><br>
I think if you research it, you will find it's a bad, bad idea.

I only mentioned it because many women who <i>do</i> feel self-conscious about their small breasts feel that way because they <i>do</i> care about how men perceive them. I just wanted to reassure anyone who <i>did</i> feel that way that the "all men love big breasts" myth is just that--a myth. Although I think it's great to be happy with your body no matter what, I also don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to feel attractive to the opposite sex (or same sex for that matter). The point I was trying to make is that, although media images would lead you to believe otherwise, different people find all kinds of different physical features to be attractive

<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"> I would never change my body to fit into an idea of what a guy wants me to look like. Not to mention the fact that guys are so wishy-washy. Some like big butts, some like big breasts, some like flat stomachs, some like padding, etc. The only reason I would ever consider getting it done is because I'm Gwenyth Paltrow-flat except apple shaped, which isn't a great combo, it looks disproportionate. But yeah, 99.9% of the time I'm fine with how I look, and why pay 3,000 dollars when padded bras look just as good?<br><br><br><br>
I should probably have mentioned this in my first post, but if I were to get the procedure, I would get something like a B (probably says something about my size right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">), never a C or D or DD. I don't mean this to be offensive to anyone with a larger chest, but being that big seems like they would hurt like hell, and I definately don't need the attention they would most likely attract.
