Whose Boobs Are These, Anyway?

I’ve never been big-chested. In fact, I’ve always lamented about how small the girls are. At my thinnest, I was an A cup. At my biggest (pre-baby), I was barely a B. It seemed nature’s cruel joke that when I gained weight, my boobs were the last place to fill out yet when I lost, they were the first place I shrank. WHAT THE ACTUAL EFF, MOTHER NATURE? What kind of wonk-ass logic is THAT?

I digress. When I became pregnant, my boobs grew as tends to happen. Preparing to nurture your baby and whatnot. I went from a 36A to a 36C overnight. Seriously. I went to bed an A, and woke up and my boobies were all, “OH HAI, LOL. WE’RE BIG NOW.” Suddenly I knew the joys of gratuitous boob sweat (because I was also an oven when I was pregnant). Oh happy day. It turns out that having larger boobs isn’t all fun and games. For one, my boobs were sore through my pregnancy and when they got bigger they just got heavier and MORE painful to lug around. They also got freakishly veiny and had random hairs sprout all over them. Weird, right? Aren’t you glad you decided to read this post and learn all about my ta-tas?

So now that I’ve gained weight and am the proud owner of back fat, my bra size has increased yet again. It’s not in the cup so much as it is in the circumference. My chest is now an impressive 40C. The other day I was carrying the laptop into the bedroom. I looked down at my computer and my boob had tried to create a Facebook event. I had to quickly exit out of the event before my other boob decided it wanted to join the fun and ended up inadvertently starting a flash mob or some shit.

I know that 40C is not the biggest bra size ever but holy fuck is it hard to find cute bras in that size that don’t cost the same as a Cadillac. Seriously, bra makers. SHOW THE BIG GIRLS SOME FREAKING LOVE. This is a disturbing trend not only seen in bra manufacturers but in clothing companies in general. They seem to think that only big women with lots of money want to look cute and fashionable; the rest of us are content wearing mumus and t-shirts that are actually made from old plantation home curtains. I have a newsflash for you, clothing companies: PLUS SIZED WOMEN ARE NOT SCARLETT O’HARA. I DO NOT WANT YOUR CLOTHING MADE FROM DRAPERIES. KTHXBAI.

Anyway, my bigger chest would be nicer if my waist were smaller. Now that I’ve been using John Cleese and am trying to lose some weight, I know that my boobies are going to shrink faster than any other part of me because that’s just how it goes. I’ll be a little sad to see the girls go, but the back fat will not be missed.


  1. You are HILARIOUS! I’m a 40C too (after pregnancy). You (and John Cleese) should join Fit Mama Club!

  2. Your boobs trieds to start a ~flash~ mob…hahahahahahahahahaha

  3. I think that the Itty Bitty Titty Committee is in charge of bra design. They’re resentful of bigger boobs, and kinda nuts, so only smaller bras get to be cute.

    And the bigger they get, the uglier the bras are.

    It’s hard to be sexy with 75 cast iron hooks in the back of your bra. Even the most skilled dudes can’t get them off.

  4. ROFL as usual you hit the mark. Love it! Yup, the fashion industry makes this 40-almost-DD want smaller boobs too! What I REALLY hate are the straps- I swear 98% of the DD bras (and even D’s!) have 4 rows of clasps, instead of the manageable 3. Oy.

  6. I was a 38C when I got pregnant, and a 42DDD while I was nursing. I know, right?? Now I’m a measly 38DD. If you ask nicely, I’ll show you all the cute bras I have 😀

  7. Seriously, the part about your boobs setting up facebook events almost made me spit my coffee out laughing! I ended up with way bigger ta-ta’s after my kids were born too. But not va-va-voom awesome boobies, just larger yet droopier boobies. *sigh*

  8. Oh my heavens. That’s quite an old lady exclamation from me, but I am peeing here. This is understandably the best post ever. From a much bigger boobed gal, I feel you, sister. I do. Your boob created a facebook event? Well, they must be much perkier than mine. That’s what happens when you go from big to bigger – ehem. And yeah, the back pain I experience will show you it ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. But the clothes and bras? Seriously. Thanks for the love. Because it is so friggin true. And I hate it. So hate it, that I have to pay like 80-bucks for the same bra that someone else spends 25 on. Freggers.
