I find that the Blistex lip balm in the blue tin is great for when you get that dry skin around the nipples. I'm now at the age where you get mammograms once a year to screen for breast cancer, and it hurts when the machine is against the breastbone and they have to squish the boob to get a good image.

I get dry skin on my nipples, not around them. Thank you for the advice, but won't the cooling sensation feel strange on my nipples?

I'm sorry that you have to deal with painful mammograms. I really hope they invent some sort of technology so that you won't have to get your breasts squished to get results.

Bra shopping is such a hassle because of my odd shaped body - narrow shoulders, wide rib cage - I buy them to fit my ribs and the straps fall down all the time. Also losing a lot of weight recently has lead to major boob shrinkage - I've gone from an F cup to a C cup. I had to buy all new bras along the way and they're expensive dang it.

I get my bras from Bravissimo, and they sell them from D and up. :D


I do the same, they're so much more comfortable than any of the others I've ever had. I went about three months ago and it was like a revelation; I don't think I'd ever had a bra that actually fitted properly before even when I'd supposedly had them fittted elsewhere.


I know! I've spent years hating my boobs because I was never comfortable with any bra I had or even when I had no bra on. Then I went to bravissimo and I have never known comfort like this since I was a b cup. Though this bra is due for a replacement soon, it's still miles better than going to debenhams and getting a bra that's "close enough".

I have had dryness under my boobs for a few months now. A rash (non-itchy) has developed under each boob spread out a bit into my lower ribcage area. I tried to find a picture that resembled it online and the best I can describe it as is the patchy rash look that measles gives. The rash is kind of in my under arm area as well... I am scared to see dermatologists, I have a fear of getting diagnosed with anything. :(

I have the same issue! Small shoulders and a wide rib cage, and with my cup size being D my boobs weigh down the straps, I find that the straps are never able to support my boobs because I keep having to tighten them due to stretching over time. And when they become looser, they always fall down -_-

... I would rather be flat chested. :x So I don't have to deal with it. But I would rather not make an initiative out of it to regret something later.
So I'd pay the attention to it as least as possible and not make an issue out of it.

At least it's not as huge and inconvenient, size wise.
Still, why do I have to wear a bra? Why does it get on the way when I lie on my front? Why does it have to be annoying when I run or jump? And does it have to be delicate if I end up bumping with it?


That's all I could ever rant about having breasts. Lol.

Same, except left is bigger.

I've gained 30kgs in the last few years (damn medication) and so my boobs have grown from a 12DD to a 14F. That's Aussie sizes. I'm not very tall - 163cm - so my boobs are very big on me.

I would love a breast reduction.

I hate bras and having large breasts in general. I wear them just because I feel uncomfortable going out in public without one. Most of mine come from Kmart or Walmart, I wish I had some more comfortable ones that fit better, but at this point in time, I can't afford them. I can't stand the padded ones or ones with wire.
