    If you feel that having breast reduction surgery would be the right option for you then go for it. It's a shame that the NHS won't fund it since your boobs are clearly doing more harm than good.

    Every single time. The struggle I have to go through to find a decent looking bra with a DD cup is unreal
    and bikini shopping is a nightmare. It has taken me three years to collect a couple of bikinis that actually fit!

    So my boobs are pretty big (38F). Some people wouldn't regard this as that big, but considering my height (5'2/3) they're pretty damn huge.

    They don't give me much physical pain (i.e. back aches), but they are a massive pain day-to-day.
    - I can never buy tops online (or just in general w/o trying it on) because I know as great as it looks on the model, it sure as hell wouldn't look right/appropriate on me.
    - I'm always being harassed by guys whenever I wear a top thats even a LITTLE bit tight. For example, one security guard in the store I work at actually got fired last week because he wouldn't stop following me around, ogling at my boobs/ass. Another guy followed me half the way home on another occasion, making really crude remarks about them.
    - It frustrates me that I have to wear looser tops that I don't particularly like just to feel less insecure

    I'm saving up for a surgery (which will cost £6500 -_-) to reduce the size of my boobs, as they're really proving to be a nuisance. I've researched into this a lot but it's a decision I'm about 80% sure I'm going to make.
    This is a long shot, but I'd ****ing love it if someone on TSR experienced these frustrations too - all of my friends happen to be stick thin and have small enough boobs to wear whatever they want without thinking of other people in doing so.
    If you're a 38 band but also pretty short you are probably carrying some extra weight - have you tried losing any weight because they might shrink?

    (Not trying to be offensive in any way or saying you're fat or anything. My friend used to be a 38 something massive and then she did Weight Watchers, got down to a 34 and her cup size decreased quite a lot)

    Same, the normal bra's are all so ugly I mean the support is obviously necessary but it's almost sad that normal D or DD aren't as nice as A's and B's etc. Lol.

    Doesn't help most hightstreet shops sell them together with bottoms as size 8 size 10 etc. Found a lovely one in Next during the summer which fits perfectly though

    The cons of having big boobs.. Do your bras ever start getting tighter just after a few weeks too? Happens to me all the time

    I do stand up to them, I let them know of course that I won't stand for their behaviour.

    But it still happens, and there comes a point where having this (and other things) happen almost daily becomes tiring.
    Yeah I understand that, I guess if I were in your position I'd feel like reducing my boob size to make these guys leave me alone finally means they 'win' in some sense. I get that it's for your own benefit, but the more chauvinistic or conservative guys who spout about women being sluts if they dress a certain way will probably think "good, now she won't look like a slut". Again I do know you're doing it for you, it's just so saddening that you feel you have no choice and need to do it to stop the almost daily harassment you get.

    I weigh 10.5 stone, and I'm 5'2 bordering on 5'3.
    Fair enough, I'll try out a weight loss regime. If it really does make that much difference i'll stick to it.

    Lol but I think it's because it's old and it's not really that supportive either. But it is comfortable!

    I hate bras all together tbh. If I could get away with it I would never wear one!

    You're only very slightly overweight (as in by BMI standards, you probably don't even look 'big'). Why do you think you're a 38 band? Have you tried actually measuring under your bust? I only say this because a lot of people go by what they tell you in shops when you're measured but the way they do that is wrong. There's a lot of material online about this if you want to research it but basically shops add on some inches to your underbust measurement and they shouldn't be doing this. If you measure a 32 for example they will suggest a 36 band when really you need a 32 band. You could well be 4-5 inches under a 38, which would make you more of a 34 band for example (although you would need an even bigger cup then!) but changing the band to one that actually fits you should fit more comfortably and relieve some of the back pain.

    It does make a difference. They always used to tell me I was a 36 something - my underbust is 31 inches! There's no reason to give me a 36 band. When I try on those old bras now it's such a massive difference, it also affects your posture which impacts your back pain. It's worth measuring yourself and seeing if you are truly 38 inches underneath, I doubt you are

    Even with small boobs sadly guys will still follow you, I know its sad. Even the nicest of men will still look so don't get freaked out because sometimes its hard for us men not to look.

    You shouldn't worry about looking different compared to your friends, doesn't mean you're not attractive. You should feel confident as lots of girls pay to get what you have and having big boobs doesn't mean people think you're a slut.
    Thats a bit sexist. Don't paint us all guys with the same brush.
