I don't know if I'm really in the right place but I've decided to sit down at my computer and try and find other people who can understand my problem. The heading 'Mysterious Bosom' sums it up perfectly.
I've never been a thin person but I'm not exactly huge either (UK size 14/16). I've always been fairly large busted and from the age of about 17 was a 36DD. That then increased to an E around age 23. Then an F by 24... (can you see where this is going?). Anyway, I'm now 28, over the past three years my boobs have swelled and swelled, causing much pain, embarrasment and stretch marks along the way. Being too embarrassed to go to the shops and be measured I have found some excellent measuring guides on the internet and yesterday I got a new bra by Fantasie that is a 38 J as I was getting over-spill from my existing bras, this 38J bra actually fits me, it is the largest cup size that is on sale in the UK and I'm so upset. So much for 'bog is beautiful' to me I look awful, I am totally out of proportion, I hate going out because people stare at me. Some people look almost in disgust, I cover up as much as I can and I'm dreading the Summer when I can't hide under big jumpers any more. I don't go out in the evening with friends anymore - how can I when they'd all be there in pretty tops etc...
Does anyone out there understand how it feels to have people speaking to your chest? I'm sure lots of people wouldn't recognise my face! What can I wear to minimise the look of my bust? Why do they not sell minimiser bras in large sizes for those of us who really need them? So many questions! I feel like a freak! I'm also putting on weight because I can't really exercise - I suppose I could bind them up but would still be stared out of the gym!
I'm sorry this is long but I'm really hoping that there are others out there who have the same problems as me who will understand. I braved going to the Dr last year (not an easy subject to talk about with a GP) and apparently some people's busts don't stop growing until they're in their 30s, all normal apparently - doesn't feel/look very normal to me!
Thanks for listening - any advice gratefully received!
Upset from the UK!
