Problems Caused by Large Breasts
There are physical and psychological problems that can be caused by having breasts that are too large or are disproportionate to your body. Some of these include:
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Pain while exercising
- Problems with posture
- Problems sleeping
- Self-esteem issues
- Discomfort due to inability to find clothes that fit you
- Societal judgments based on what others see as “appropriate” outfits
Deciding if a Breast Reduction is Right for You
Do Your Breasts ‘Fit’ Your Body?
When you look in the mirror, are you happy with the way that your clothes fit, or do you find the need to wear clothes that draw attention away from your breasts?
Do Your Breasts Cause You Pain?
Are bra straps constantly digging into your shoulder with the weight of holding up your breasts? Do you have difficulty doing exercise and even sleeping at night because of the discomfort caused by your large breasts?
Are You Comfortable in Your Body?
Some women with large breasts find themselves the objects of a lot of unwanted attention from men. This can be uncomfortable and upsetting.
Are You Able to Wear Clothes You Like?
It is often difficult to find clothing for women with very large breasts.
