I have big boobs. They’re not huge or anything, they’re just big. I like my boobs… most of the time. They’re cool and I appreciate them and I probably wouldn’t change them and all of that good stuff. But I have to be honest with you guys – sometimes, having larger breasts is so. Freakin’. Annoying.
A lot of girls think that with bigger boobs comes endless possibilities. Sure, those curves fill out certain styles of clothing differently than A-cups do, but trust me – big boobs do not make everything better. There are certain items of clothing I wish I could wear, but I can’t because they just don’t fit my breasts right. I have never given up hope on some things (I refuse to stop looking until I find the perfect strapless bikini), but honestly, most of the time these things are just a major fail on my body.
Here are 10 things that kind of suck because of my boobs. I’m sure many of you can relate. Let’s complain together:
Button-Down ShirtsI think I have been on a never-ending quest to find the perfect button-down shirt since I was born. I'M NOT BEING DRAMATIC. I love, love, love the look of any button-down, but unfortunately, I have yet to find one that doesn't pop open in the middle of a group of strangers to reveal my bra. That happens if I can even manage to button it up to begin with - usually I have to wear a tank underneath, which is like, ugh. Source: Forever 21
Loose Crop TopsI see these kind of loose crop tops everywhere in New York during the summer. They're so fun and carefree and light and I want one. So I forgot the lessons I've learned in the past about baggy shirts and big boobs and bought one. The tank either slides down to show off my whole bra or slides over to show off major side boob or rides up so much you can see my stomach. No thanks. Dreams over. Source: Forever 21
Elastic Waist Shirts or DressesElastic waists are the bane of my existence. I think they were made solely to make me feel bad about myself (JK, JK, I'm not so self-absorbed). My boobs fill out too much of the top and the whole thing just ends up looking weird and lopsided or kind of giving me a pregnant vibe and it's like... pregnancy is cool and all, but I'm not pregnant. So... Source: Forever 21
Bathing SuitsYou know how you can run over to Target and buy a super cute bikini for, like, $30? That must be nice. I don't know what that feels like. I only order my bathing suits from Victoria's Secret so that I can get them in bra sizes - and even then, the tops usually don't always fit right. There's a lot of squishing and pushing and under-boob and side-boob action happening no matter what. I mean, can't a girl just be comfortable on the beach?! Source: ShutterStock
Sports BrasAny fellow large-chested woman will agree with me - sports bras are the worst. I've spent one too many workouts squishing my boobs into two different sports bras just so they don't painfully move around while I exercise... because that HURTS. It's so hard to find a good sports bra. Some of them squish you way too much (that's not support, it's just squishing) and some of them claim they're supportive, but... they're not. It's a lie. Personally, I enjoy high-impact Under Armour sports bras. Just a friendly tip. Source: ShutterStock
Strapless AnythingI once heard someone say she envied girls with large breasts because we could pull of strapless things better. LOL NO. Strapless things, whether it's a bra or a dress or a top, make me miserable and I wish I were kidding. How do I explain a night full of constantly pulling up your shirt/dress/bra and wondering whether or not your boobs have turned into one giant long boob? Annoying. Terrible. Uncomfortable.

Long NecklacesOh, check out how cute this look is. Wish I could wear it. Except I can't, because whenever I try to pull off a long necklace, it either gets stuck between my boobs and looks ridiculous or it just hangs two inches off my waist and bops around all day. No, thanks. Source: ShutterStock
Backless Anything, Or A Low BackI adore backless dresses. They're so sexy and sophisticated. Too bad I'll never be able to pull one off because I have to wear some sort of supportive bra and supportive means a thick band. Major, major sad face. Low backs are almost as frustrating - no one likes to see your bra hanging out of your shirt. Source: Featureflash/ShutterStock
Spaghetti Strap ShirtsThese little tanks are so cute and simple and I love spaghetti straps for the summer. Unfortunately, it's really hard for me to pull them off. Remember those supportive bras I was just talking about? Yeah, they usually involve thick straps that are completely visible under a spaghetti strap. And that kind of ruins things. Source: Forever21
Cute And Cheap BrasI used to work at Victoria's Secret and I spent a lot of my time there admiring the adorable and cheap PINK bras that came in all sorts of fun colors. Just admiring, though, because wearing a cheap bra like this is like wearing no bra at all. There's just no support there. Do you know how much my bank account wishes I could spend $30 on a bra rather than $60? Do you?! Source: Victoria's Secret
(Okay, okay, in all seriousness though, I do genuinely love my boobs. I wouldn’t trade them in even though this stuff is all so annoying. Just wanted to throw that in there!)
