I don't get why women want larger breasts. I can't think of a single benefit to having larger boobs. I have large boobs and I feel very self conscious about them. They feel uncomfortable and they just weigh me down.

But a lot of females hate having smaller breasts and I have to ask, why? What do you need big boobs for? Aside from societal pressure, why do you think you'll feel better about yourself if they were bigger? If you think it would give you more approval from males/females, why does it matter? Why do you think you need that validation?

I hate how my breasts feel, how much they weigh, how they look, how they make it harder for me to participate in sports (which is something I used to love as a child). I hate how they made me feel growing up and how people thought I was an adult when I was 13. I can't comprehend how anyone would willingly subject themselves to this. Its not that they make me feel dysphoric, but sometimes I think I should just get a double mastectomy before they try to kill me anyway, haha.

Sorry, I'm not trying to undermine peoples body image problems - I just don't understand it.

I always wanted bigger boobs as a teenager. I'm pear-shaped, large hips and rear and proportionately smaller boobs. In my culture, this is not the prefered body type. Large breasts are glorified, large hips are not. I felt disproportionate and warped. I wished to have larger breasts to balance things out.

I got them. The grass is not greener. I do feel slightly better about myself sometimes, but my body shape has not been altered. I still have large hips, and narrow shoulders, but now I have big boobs in the front. And the problems that causes just suck.

I don't. In fact I had surgery when I was young to make them smaller (they were really in the way and causing problems). It was a fast education in what a serious thing surgery is, but I've been very glad ever since. The only problem I've ever had with it was in difficulty breastfeeding, but all turned out well there, and on balance the surgery was still a great thing.

One thing I stopped bothering with long ago, too, is the whole brassiere show. I don't care if I have uniboob. Sports bras, hooray. If I could go braless I definitely would, and as I've gotten older I've gotten less self-conscious about that, too.

I hate big boobs too. I never understood it either why women would want big boobs. Big boobs are unattractive and gross. I know they do come to advantage such as breast feeding or pregnancy. You wear bigger shirts so they fit you longer during pregnancy until they can no longer cover your belly. I used to obsess how big mine are and cry over them and now I have learned to accept them. They don't get in the way, I just have to wear a bra all the time or a sports bra and no biggie. They don't hurt my shoulders or stop cute tops from fitting me. I just wear a size large in junior tops for my boobs and I can wear youth 18-20 shirts. But when I had both my babies and milk started coming it, it was not fun being engorged with big breasts.

Oh, I don't. I'd be quite happy to lose a cup size or 2.

Aside from societal pressure? Societal pressure and approval from others is a huge motivator for, well, humans.

I don't want bigger boobs - I'm a G cup, that's plenty - but I understand wanting to fit society's ideal of beauty. If anything I want to even more because I'm autistic and people are more likely to forgive awkward behavior if they find you attractive.

I don't care a bout boobie size and im a guy I like personality and I have enountered many women who have big boobs and to be honest most tell me they wish their boobs were smaller, less back problems and less issues finding a bra. Big boobs are over rated anyway, although I like boobs I dont like knowing the fact they make the woman feel uncomfortable I want her to be comfortable with herself! If I get a gf who has big boobs and wants her boobs to be smaller Im all for it, I just want her to be happy!

I'm actually really happy I've got boobs of moderate size. I love large breasts on many other women, just not on me. The problems I have (popcorn in cleavage, uncomfortable run-jiggling and so on) would be much worse if I had a larger chest. I also don't have a very large body, so huge breasts would look disproportionate.

Sorry to be a buzzkill, but i want to point out that figure 8 bouncing is very painful. It's why I don't run. Funny joke tho.
