    Horses for courses. I like tiny AA's up to B's or maybe C's ideally. Any bigger and they have to be amazing as I don't care for blue veined saggy saddle-bags. Bigger boobs tend not to age as well, so when I settle down it would probably be with a smaller breasted girl preferably.

    WOW!! don't neg rate me for saying this but it is very rare for a guy to admit he likes girls with a smaller bust size, they usually rant and rave about big boobs, but that i must admit is from my own experience of over-hearing male conversations.....

    I feel so sorry for bigger busted ladies, they have such a hard time finding anything decent underwear wise, i sometimes resent my bust size, but after hearing all of this maybe i should be thankful i don't have such difficulty, no bragging intended....

    It seems the roles are reversed somewhat, us smaller women want bigger boobs but ladies with bigger boobs would like smaller ones to benefit them in the underwear department ....

    i can't help but agree.... unfortunately we always seem to want something more than what we've got whether that is bust size, money, beauty etc....

    but like i said after reading this i think i'm inclined to change my mind on this whole issue.......

    There are guys who find the likes of Jordan and Pamela Anderson repulsive. The puerile 'bigger the better' idiom touted by young men is mostly bravado and peer pressure talk. Look at some of the worlds most beautiful women, Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller, Cameron Diaz or Audrey Tautou, and the majority of catwalk models, although some of them can look ill, many are the epitome of female beauty. Give me a girl who looks like a Greek statue than a cartoon parody any day. Add in the fact that with small boobs you can go bra-less, which as amazingly sexy, and it's a win, win, win ?

    it is refreshing to know that us lil women stand a chance because the media, and that of what we hear around us like you said the idiom 'bigger the better', i know most definitely makes me feel self conscious and insecure about myself......

    It's one thing saying you like smaller breasted girls, that's fine, but where was the need to imply all us girls with larger boobs look disgusting and saggy? That's just going to make people feel bad and insecure about their large breasts. Some people like myself are naturally slim with big boobs, we didn't have surgery or anything, so it's something we can't help. Everyone has preferences, but there's no need to make either side of the spectrum feel bad about it. I think you can be beautiful and femenine at any size, it's all about proportion.

    I guess I know what you mean, but I was really stating my opinion about this, I've never really come across really big breasts so I can't really say anything I guess . I do feel for big breasted people, I've heard that it can hurt especially when you run and stuff. Anyway for years I've been the too small variety so I guess I was a bit unsympathetic I guess in the other direction, that's all.
    Yeah it's very painful, I just don't run anymore haha. Yeah I get what you mean, I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum so I'm more sensitive to comments about it I guess haha. Yeah if you haven't really seen any, a DD probably would seem big. It's what you're used to. I used to see my size in the shops and be like WOW:eek: but now I'm used to it, it seems normal to me.

    I'm a 30ff and probably out of proportion but I've been this size since I was about 18 so it's 'normal' for me! I have a love/hate relationship with my boobs, some days I just want to chop them off so I can wear cute bras from H&M but most days I appreciate them, as they could be saggy/whatever and a lot worse!

    I think it's important to learn to be happy with what you have and dress to flatter your shape

    Also, about high st shops not stocking bigger sizes - yes it is annoying, but I personally think it's a blessing is disguise. The quality of a high st bra in comparison to somewhere like Panache or Gossard (my 2 fave brands) is obvious and when you have bigger breasts you need more support and so by having to buy better quality bras it could be actually the best thing!

    This!
    The number of times I've said I'm a D cup and people insist that I'm not because "D cup is huge, and your flat"...
    I'm a 30D and I'm a ballet dancer so my boobs aren't much bigger than this; http://content.foxsearchlight.com/si...ie_ballet2.jpg
    !
    I'm so glad you've said this, my housemates think I'm lying when I say I'm 28DD. My boyfriend thinks I'm being "pathetic" when I say I want surgery to have them just a little bit bigger because I feel like they are too small, because of the size on my bra label, even though I know he likes the look of bigger ones. Maybe others will say that too and I know it's a superficial thing to complain about when there's lots of 'real' suffering going on, and I appreciate that and even feel guilty about it, but I can't help that they do make me very very unhappy some days! Warped I guess...

    Also, don't really get all the people saying loads of shops don't stock their size when they're E/F/G etc. Sure, shops such as TopShop, New Look etc don't, because they are fashion retailers, not underwear specialists, they don't have the financial capacity to go into such a wide breadth of sizes. Go into shops that specialise in lingerie and I'm pretty sure there's no problem - Marks and Spencers are my personal favourite because they make the 28 back in bigger sizes, I've only found that there and Bravissimo make a 28 cup size that's not meant for children... If you're a 30+ though I don't think you should have a problem in M&S, Bravissimo (if you're D+ and granted, it is an expensive shop), Debenhams, La Senza... I always see the bigger sizes in there!

    The one place that annoys me for not stocking sizes is Ann Summers, because lingerie is there specialist area, and it seems wrong that they start at 32! Makes me feel like I can't possibly be sexy because of my size, booooo.

    You kind of suggested most girls with big boobs have horrible saggy ones, which isn't true. Haha thanks.

    I think it's all about proportaion. Someone who's petite (I'm talking like 5ft, size 6) with narrow hips and shoulders would look a little bit Tim Burton with massive 34DD's. But someone who's a size 10 with a hourglass figure would suit them. Mine are fairly large 32DD which is pain because most high street shops don't go up that high so it's irritating to find decent undies, but otherwise I quite like them

    Then again, big boobs are impractical. Aesethically pleasing none the less, but if you want to run downstairs without a decent bra on... ouch!

    Different shapes and sizes are everywhere. But is there a size where they are too big? Too small? Unattractive? What size is too small, too big or just right?

    I've been concerned about the definition of these for ages. It's particularly hard when you're at school. You keep comparing yourself to other people. Others look at you in different ways, sometimes even ***** about it. For example, a 32E. Is anything exceeding a D or DD cup too much? I'd just like your opinions on this matter.
    My ex was not a fan of my DD's he would have liked them a little smaller, now I'm a G and he definitely thinks they are too big, my current boyfriend is the exact opposite he thinks the bigger the better, he loves them and probably wouldn't say no to a few more cup sizes, given half the chance.

    Email them, I did complaining that they made their dress up suits in size 20 but their lingerie didn't go to an F cup, I didn't get a reply but low and behold not long after they brought out F and G cups.

    That really worked?! I really need them to make 30 backsizes, 32s are slightly too lose, so I might try that too. Oh and THANK YOU, for bringing Ann Summers to us G cup girls!

    Ahhh thanks for this, think I will do just that! Tbh, I can understand them not doing a 28 'cause a lot of places don't, I guess it's pretty uncommon, but the fact that they don't even do a 30 is pretty bad, even TopShop occasionally do 30's, granted, I've only ever seen a 30 in an A cup, but still, lingerie's not their speciality so you can't really blame them.

    I agree about the 32s being too loose! I'm a 30ff but sometimes can fit into a 32f if it's tight enough and there's just so much more variety in the 32fs! Makes me eternally tempted to wear a baggy backed bra cause they're so pretty! xx

    Aww thankyou. :hugs: I bet you look lovely too, I think different shapes suit different people and stuff. Plus it's far more practical to have less boobage!

    I do that sometimes, if it's a small 32 I can just about make do. Not as supportive as the 30s though!

    I feel like I'm really small-chested, people would think that DD is big but when you're a 28 it's really not. I always feel inadequate in comparison to my boyfriend's previous "conquests" on that front... haha!

    I guess you have to do your best to accept what you've got, I am only 5ft tall and a size 4/6 in clothes, so I guess it is being greedy of me to ask to be much bigger, but still, I would love to have your figure Ali, so I hope that despite all the difficulties you have in finding stuff to fit you, that you completely embrace it! Sounds like you do so I hope so
