5 common discomforts associated with overly large breasts

09th Jun 2019



There are probably a few women in the world who can say with an open heart that they are completely content with their breasts. Most women are not only dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts, but their breasts are also the cause of different emotional complexes that can affect the woman’s life on multiple levels. Considering the fact that one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures is breast augmentation with implants, it seems obvious that most women struggle with having small breasts. However, it is also possible for women who were naturally gifted in the breasts department to look for help from plastic surgery to have the opposite procedure performed.

The reasons why women resort to plastic surgery to have the size of their breasts reduced is because there are several discomforts associated with overly large breasts. In other words, the life of women with huge breasts is not all milk and honey. Sometimes, it can even be quite the opposite.

Here are the most common discomforts associated with overly large breasts:


  1.    Doing physical exercise

With our hectic lifestyles, it can be pretty difficult to get in the mood to exercise, especially if you have work and kids and many other responsibilities and chores. However, many people pick up jogging or other similar activities as they find it relaxing, and they get a chance to be with themselves and clear their head or they have the opportunity to meet other people with similar interests. But when it comes to exercising for women with overly large breasts, even the idea can cause a headache.

Physical exercises are not supposed to be without discomfort, but there is a different type of discomfort that women with overly large breasts experienced when exercising. Just imagine trying to run with two big bottles of water hanging on your chest. Difficult right? Moreover, sports clothing often offers little or no support for women with excessively large breasts.

Women with huge breasts can also suffer from shortage of breath when performing physically demanding activities so it is pretty difficult to pick up jogging or running or other exercises. This lack of physical exercise can lead to an excess of weight over time.


  1.    Limited choice of clothing and lingerie

There are certain types of clothing and lingerie that a woman with overly large breasts will never be able to wear, at least not with her dignity intact. Have you ever seen a woman with huge breasts wearing a dress or blouse with a bare back? This is a rare occurrence as large breasts need all the support available and often this means wearing bras with wide straps for good coverage.

How many times did it happen to you to admire a beautiful strapless dress or some swimming suit and think that you will never be able to wear something like it?

The reality is that there is little choice for women with excessively large breasts, and the lingerie for plus sizes can also be more expensive and not as sexy. This means that finding a bra that has the slightest bit of appeal can be an impossible mission for a woman with big breasts. Women with large breasts are confined to bras that have a very wide band and straps and look like something your grandma would wear now in her old age.

A dream of many women is to get back home from work or from a crazy day out, take their bras off, and relax for a bit. When it comes to overly large breasts, there is no such thing as taking the bra off. Many women with breasts of a larger volume even sleep with a bra or bustier on. There are always big indentations in the shoulders and under the breasts created by the bras, and this doesn’t make a beautiful appearance when taking off clothes.

Clothing accidents can happen all the time to women with large breasts. Wearing shirts for work is rarely an option as buttons tend to jump and it can become awkward. Most clothing designed for accommodating overly large breasts is very stretchy and not something you would normally wear to a business meeting. The alternative would be to wear shirts from a man’s wardrobe that will accommodate your breasts nicely but erase any sign of femininity from your attire.

Another thing that women with normal breasts don’t know is that one can get stuck in clothing, due to the volume of the breasts. Women with large breasts have all been there: putting on a dress, deciding it is just not going to do work, and trying to remove it over their heads only to get stuck because of their big breasts.


  1.    Not being able to rest on the tummy

For some people, it is inconceivable not to sleep on the tummy. These people are certainly not women with overly large breasts as the volume of the breasts makes this task almost impossible. Having the chest crushed is not particularly pleasant, so women with overly large breasts will often sleep on the sides and avoid sleeping on the back or tummy.

  1.    Oversexualization

When seeing huge breasts, we often associate them with anything but professional work, religious work, and the like. Women with overly large breasts find out very soon in life that most people notice their breasts before the person. Young women with overly developed breasts can struggle with oversexualization especially if they are still in school but looking much older because of the volume of their breasts. Adolescents with big breasts can experience bullying and other types of aggressive behavior that can affect their self-esteem and overall development. Moreover, it is never pleasant to be characterized by the size of your breasts and to face unwanted glances from people in different circumstances.


  1.    Lack of support and understanding from people around you

Your friend who is wearing an A cup will never understand your struggles. Your step mom who is buying push up bras with silicone pads will not understand how it is for you. Most women around you will watch you with jealousy, not with understanding. This means that women with overly large breasts go through all the struggles by themselves.

It can be difficult for people to offer support for something they don’t understand or they have never experienced, especially if there is a level of jealousy involved. Women with overly large breasts have always been the nemesis of women with underdeveloped breasts. Women with small breasts can even feel threatened by women with excessively large breasts, so understanding and support is rarely an option here. This can be explained by the fact that women with huge breasts get unwanted attention even from their friends’ partners and so on. For many people, it can be difficult to avert their eyes from a woman with excessively large breasts.


Breast reduction to correct overly large breasts

Breast reduction is performed nowadays with high success rates. The procedure can correct the excessive volume of the breasts, making the anatomy of the patient more proportionate. Women with excessively large breasts can even have the procedure performed using health insurance if the breasts pose issues to their health condition.

The procedure is performed all over the United States, and it is important to choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon to play out your procedure to avoid ulterior complications and to get a spectacular result. Keep in mind that there are potential risks associated with breast reduction, so make sure to discuss all the details with the surgeon during the initial consultation for the procedure.

The procedure is often performed with the patient under general anesthetic. The hospitalization can be of a few hours and up to a day or two, and the recovery period is no longer than two weeks.



The size of the breasts can be a blessing, but when it is excessive, the blessing becomes a curse. Women with overly large breasts face many struggle and discomforts on a daily basis. Among these discomforts are the limited choice of clothing and lingerie, not being able to sleep on the tummy, difficulties in performing physical exercises, the oversexualization of the woman, and the lack of support from friends and family members.

For women with huge breasts, it is important to know that there is a solution to their problems and it is called breast reduction. The procedure can be performed on patients of different ages, starting at 16 years old and even sooner in extraordinary circumstances.
