    Clothes companies assume that because I've got big boobs, I'm fat.

    I am SICK of buying size 14 clothes, just because the size 10s (that fit my body perfectly) are too tight over my chest. I shouldn't have to wear baggy clothes just because companies refuse to cater to women with REAL CURVES who aren't just fat.

    CURVY =/= FAT.

    OH AND ANOTHER THING. How comes companies that make beautiful lingerie never go up to my size? Apparently girls bigger than a DD don't like wearing nice bras. Or, if they do, they must be rich. I shouldn't have to spend £30-£40 just to find a decent bra. I wear a 32F cup, and I wear size 10 knickers. What does that tell you??

    I swear to God, clothes are designed by skinny *****es who are jealous of girls with real curves, and it goes the same for lingerie. We have to pay a lot of money for a limited selection of underwear. I bet it's a scam. They know that because girls with DD+ boobs NEED bras more than girls with size B boobs, they make us pay MORE. They know they can get the money out of us because we have no choice. I can't pop into Primark and buy a cheap bra. New Look and H&M don't go up to my size. It isn't fair.

    (I can't believe people are actually taking me seriously when I say people are "jealous"... really? I was kidding, people.)

    I google image searched "curvy woman" to prove my point.

    I'm probably what you'd class as fat, but I also get annoyed with my boobs sometimes.

    I can never wear shirts because the buttons just don't do up/are stretched so you can see my boobs Also t-shirts make me look fatter than I am, so I normally go for 'empire line' tops/dresses because they're the most flattering. This limits what I can wear quite a lot... Boo hiss.

    Plus I hate having to pay lots for bras too! Primark do actually do a range of larger sizes but they're all pretty granny-ish and not at all what I like wearing! I normally get mine in La Senza and end up paying £15-20 for a bra ON ITS OWN, not even a set. Grr.

    Know the feeling =/ I have the same problem as you - it's a nightmare just to pop into a shop and buy a nice top. Don't even get me started on bikinis!
    Why is it that some certain body types are catered for an not others? It's stupid. I don't know how many people must be annoyed at this, but you'd think that some giant company would have decided to make a bit of money out of it?

    I hear you sister! Most shops don't even seem to stock smaller than band size 32 or larger than a DD.

    Try shopping online - Bravissimo/Fig Leaves/Simply Yours etc.

    Not ideal as they are mostly £25-35.

    My sister has this exact problem.. 30G and size 8/10 D: Buying bikinis/swimwear is the most annoying thing for her, I think.

    She recently bought a few nice bras on the Bravissimo sale though, all about £10 - £15 Cheaper than their normal prices!

    This is the most annoying thing in the world, I share your pain. I have size E boobs but a size 8 waist, so i have to buy much larger tops to accomodate It's a real pain. And to top it all off, I'm not even 5 foot tall... Proportionally speaking, shopping = nightmare.

    Argh i have this exact same problem. I have to buy much larger sized fitted shirts just so the buttons will do up Then it doesnt fit right around your middle so it just makes you look odd X(

    As for underwear, i can't buy sets because apparantly 32DD ladies are also a large or a size 12-14 bottom?!

    you don't need to have freekishly large boobs to have curves.
    Excuse me? So having big boobs makes me a freak? Uh-uh! And large boobs aren't as rare as you think - more women are bigger than size D than are smaller so if we're calling names then brand yourself first missy!

    Yeah... Maybe wearing a bigger sized shirt with like a chunky waist belt could be a good option? I hadn't really thought about that before, I might try it :yes:
