I can totally relate to these problems. When I look at my favorite clothing stores on eBay, I just skip all the cute halter tops or any tops I cannot wear a bra with.

Do you have to wear a bra to sleep? I don't, but I know some women do.

I'm glad to hear someone else say this. I've got medium-size boobs, and I've noticed that the C&C tanks I love are often cut WAY TOO LOW, so my bra sticks out the top. It's super annoying when this happens.

Ditto. It drives me crazy, I'm always trying to pull the tank up to cover my bra or pull my bra down a little so it doesn't stick out. I still <3 C&C, though.

Sadly, so very sadly, I had to get abreast lift not an augmentation. Before ds I was a 36c (not fond of them anyway, I like the sleeker look under my C&C's!) after him they were more of a sorry-lookin' Bcup . Now they are a fabulous full B which is what I wanted. Oh, and a tubal ligation.

I've never had any plastic surgery done, but I've been wanting a reduction and then a lift for a LONG time now. I can't afford it though and I don't have any insurance at the moment, so it's definitely out of the question. My chest is completely disproportionate to the rest of my body, and has been causing me a ton of pain for years. My heart goes out to everyone in the same situation as I definitely know how you feel.
post #83 of 308
yes my friend has the same problem she has a huge chest and her back hurts all the time, we walk about the same distances to class and she gets soo tired , shes contemplating a reduction

No Surgery......Needles scare tha beegebus out of me!


I can't even watch that stuff on t.v., seeing all that blood makes me want to faint!


Luckily..my husband doesn't mind my small boobs.
post #85 of 308
especially after watching Dr. 90210!!!....its very scary
post #86 of 308
Yes - love that show, minus all the blood and gore.

Why are they so rough with people during surgery, like they are beating and throwing them around. Especially when they are shoving that long fat- sucking thingy up in them...No wonder there is so much bruising when you wake up. Ouch!!

I feel for people who actually need this type of surgery (like breast augmentation, etc.) but just doing it for vanity is kinda ..i dunno, doesn't seem worth it really.

Are we the only ones that had surgery to make ourselves look better?
I did my boobs, and don't regret it at all. They are my twins, and look Awesome! I went to the best PS I could find, he was head of plastic surgery for Tucson medical center. The man is the best!
I have a few plans as I get older, and he is the only PS that will ever touch me.

PS....It hurt like hell, took weeks to recover. It felt like an elephant sat on my chest!
No pain no gain baby!

yes, but not everyone looks like you, you're young and gorgeous. if you werent, maybe you'd think differently.
post #91 of 308
I think it would have to be life threatening for me to go thru surgery..it just seems so hard on your body.

((oh and thanks for the compliment ))

And I'll mention again- I have a real real fear of needles. YIKES!

They really can do amazing things for people, I guess if you are brave enough it could be worth it. Just saying for me- it's not.

As for the weight thing, I am heavier then I want to be. Do I need to lose because I won't be able to exercise or are there any other reasons to be at my ideal weight first? I need to lose just because anyway. I don't like how my denim fit right now! Thanks Nicole! You are a sweetheart!
My Chiro is who refered me, and I have a feeling that they are often refering for this specific reason. FOr losing weight, that is just so you are where you should be when it is done. WHen I say ideal weight I mean, what is in reason by middle America standards, not Hollywood.

The PS I saw was really ccol. He made it sound like it wouldn't be a problem. Said after I birthed my last child to come in while my breasts were engorged to take a before photo, so they would be at their worst for the file. (But he would never admit to that )

You have to have rights as far as Ins. is concerned, I am just really surprised they want to keep pushing meds on you. I guess I've been around my chiroproacter too much! They are treating the symptoms & not the problem.

To the girl that has been denied 3 times. That is horrible. Did they give the grounds for refusal? If you are in pain and have been for a while, that is so surprising. Again, certainly you have to have rights here? It is not as though you got yourself coked out for the last ten years, and you are wanting them to pay for the most expensive rehab in the country.

There has to be a way to get it done, but it sounds like you might have to fight & spend some of your own money at first to get them to come through. and I guess read your insurance manuals cover to cover again and see if you missed anything.

JackieBrown - your VA nurse friends, ask them who THEY know, that you could call and ask questions. I would keep pursuing that angle, they are really a great resource.

You aren't alone I got implants 10 years ago when I was 19 and I love them. Not a day goes by that I ever regret getting them done. I was a 34A and now I'm a full 34C. I did it because I was really unproportionate and I knew it would never change because my mother and I have the exact same build (only I'm 5 inches taller...hehehe). I have 38" hips and a 25" waist, and with nothing at the top, it made my butt look even more huge. I wanted a very natural look, not huge grapefruit boobs. They look VERY natural and I'm couldn't be happier with them

Neither do I, I only wear demi bras - full cut ones don't fit me quite right - and still have this problem.

Yep, same here. It's annoying. Only time I can get away with halters is if I can somehow get a bra under it, and that usually means the neck strap is adjustable and probably so is the back somehow.

And - when I say my bra would be hanging out in shirts, I mean it..hanging out, whole thing - not just the tops of the bra or anything. So even wearing the "briefest" of bras doesn't help.
post #96 of 308
Someone asked what size you have to be to not fill out tops....I would say 32A/34A.
My roommate was a AA and got the smallest implants on the market (a B) and she looks awesome!! I would do it if I had the finances. It is hard to find tops, dresses, swim suits, bras....anything, when they are not made for a flat chest. Its a confidence issue and a proportion issue. I am a confident person, but when it comes to that area - I just feel less womanly and less secure.
I had another college roommate that had a reduction from a DD to a C. It was a harder surgery with more scarring, but she was sooo happy. Her clothes look great. I could finally buy her a cute sports bra to work out in! SHe was used to wearing 2-3 regular ones to hold em in.

Even though I've had the surgery, I have to fast forward the actual surgery parts on Dr. 90210! I'd happily go under the knife again though. The pain and recovery weren't that bad. The bruising on the lipo was pretty bad but it didn't really hurt. My Dr. said he used a BIC pen sized sucky thing (callendula?) and he went really slow...not like you see on TV. I guess that's why my surgery took 6 hours! He said he likes to go really slow. Anyway, I'm extremely happy with the results and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

I had breastfed two kids and to be honest, I felt like a boob amputee. Before, I couldn't wear dresses out of the JUNIORS section because I couldn't fill them out. Now, I can wear pretty much anything and fill it out. It is nice to not have to worry about a padded bra when wearing a formal dress or halter. I just tape up the ol' nips and go!
post #99 of 308
Ok, so I finally got up enough nerve to reply. I am having breast augmentation in 3 weeks. I was always a really small A, but after nursing 2 kids for over a year each, I am down to a AA. Nothing. So Sad.

So, I always knew I wanted this done, but I waited until after kids to see if they would grow at all, but they only got smaller- if that was at all possible. So, I go in 3 weeks to get new ones. A middle C. I am pretty petite everywhere else, so I didn't want to be too big, but I wanted it to be worth it too. I am very scared, but excited too. I know I will be very happy once it is done. I finally will be able to wear a bathing suit top that fits and a non-padded bra. YAY!

As far as the whole vanity thing, of course it is vain to have this done. But, look at all the other vain things women do- wear make-up, dye their hair, etc. Yeah I'll have fake boobs, but my red hair is real!

I think plastic suregery is something that you really have to be mature to be able to decide if it is the right thing to do. Kinda like getting a tattoo. No one should get a tattoo before they turn 18 because you wind up just getting something really stupid that you hate when you are 30, but if you wait and really think about it, you wind up gettting something that means a great deal to you. Kinda like PS. I think you really have to be very mature to make this type of decision.

So, under the knife I go!

PS- does it really hurt that much? Worse than having kids??

yes, i've had to adjust my usual bra style to accommodate my love of C&C.
