Reduction of Breasts that are Too Large to Handle

I want to have a breast reduction.

How do you sleep with those on your chest

Breast Shapes

(pointing at my breasts). Yes, how do we sleep?
How do we handle the weight in our chests (not shoulder)?

The common complains of back and chest pains have been long over flogged. Words may not break your bones but they sure do hurt. Coupled with the undeniable discomfort and sometimes pains and the Herculean task of finding the right bra, clothes, body balance and so on, it is understandable why you would want to just “get it off and be done with it “.  The answer to most is often a breast reduction.

As much as we understand the desire to have breast reduction done, we have to understand quite a number of things.

Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reductions surgery, while the quickest and most common route is sometimes a long road to recovery.

Ultimately alternative routes are been suggested now to women who want to undergo breast reduction for either cosmetic or comfort reasons.

For some persons, losing weight has no effect whatsoever on their breasts, while we can’t put weight loss as an alternative route, some women have confessed to having reduced breast size whenever they lose weight. The association between weight loss and breast reduction is unique to each person.

While we understand fully the need for breast reduction, especially for comfort purpose, we also believe in the beauty of love for one’s body.
How do you love something that makes you uncomfortable, that is a source of constant pains, ridicule and sometimes objectifying?

We fall in love with them.

These babies are a delight. They are part of our body frames, pains weight, irons that stick out, wide straps and all.

We take time out to find the right bras because without them we are a lost cause.

We work out.

Exercise help forms the muscles around those babies. Rather than a dangling, swaying bosom,

We have firm, solid, in-your-face bosoms.

I have come to love the end of the day when I let these babies out, I have come to enjoy the sense of having them around ( they won’t be going anywhere though) and they really do make my clothes look good.

It is tough to find a reason to not have a breast reduction once your mind is made up,but part of being a strong, secure woman is coming to terms with all that you are and every part of your body, living and appreciating your body (finding reasons to appreciate it more each day), finding every possible way to slay that body regardless of the rude finger pointing, annoying body objectifying, outright creepy breast staying and especially unsolicited advice from family and friends.

Here is to being big chested, no reduction in mind, totally loving it and strutting it.

“All you do is f#$king complain!”

Old Lady from Legion saying, "complain, complain, complain"
Your fucking baby is gonna burn.

If you’ve ever seen the movie Legion, you probably know where the title of this post came from!  I’ll say that no one likes to hear someone complain, certainly not this old hag!  Regardless if you’ve seen the movie or not, do yourself a favor and check out the clip for a good laugh:

I can’t help cracking up every time I watch that clip. It’s timeless. From the way ROC launches that frying pan and it soars through the air, to the way the old woman pimp slaps Dennis Quaid after having scurried across the ceiling like a half breed between SpiderMan and a cockroach (she must have been wearing Nikes!), and all the while the expression on Tyrese’s face at the happening of it all. Hilarious!

So often I read/hear busty ladies complaining about it.  I mean the laundry list of complains that we’re all familiar with are as follows:

The Laundry List

  • I can’t ever find a bra that fits and if I do they are super expensive.
  • I hate the constant attention and random people staring at me.
  • I hate wearing scarves because they make me hot and even the thinnest ones make me feel bulkier up top.
  • Stretch marks.
  • I hate the fact that I look like a stripper when I wear tight clothing.
  • I hate the fact that I look fat in baggy clothes.
  • I always have to buy separate bikini bottoms/tops because I wear a small on the bottom and a large on top.
  • They always get in the way when I do anything, like carrying things, sleeping, exercising… shall I go on?
  • I’m tired of everyone saying, “I wish I had big boobs like you.”
  • Oh, and the best one, all the complaints related to back issues and the like.

Complain, complain, complain… you know the rest.

We all have issues with our breasts (large or small).  Just like most things in life, large breasts are neither all positive nor negative.  In my own life, I’ve learned to love my breasts (and entire body for that matter), and to take and accept the bad with the good.  I could spend any amount of time complaining about the things I feel uncomfortable doing because of my figure, or about the pains I may feel more often that I would care to, but I’d rather spend that time enjoying life.

Our culture portrays large breasts in a certain light.  I choose to ignore all of that crap, because honestly it never helps me feel good.  It’s taken time for me to become comfortable in my own skin and having spent many years not able to say that, I know that I prefer this vs the alternative.

Choosing Positivity over Negativity

Anytime I feel the need to complain… I think about how that time could be better spent!
