I’ve been trying to correct my posture. After decades of trying to hide the girls, I’m now trying to stop rolling my shoulders forward and hunching my back. It’s not easy! Even sitting here typing this out I have to keep correcting my position. Of course it presents the girls front and center. What have you noticed about your posture after accepting Gyno?

I had bad posture since my teens, no doubt to try and minimize the appearance on my boobs.

Wearing a bra has helped me to be more upright for sure, as has the general acceptance that most people are not staring at my breast projection. I also feel that with the shaping and motion control a bra provides, that my breasts are less obvious anyway.

Basically, if you have breast development a bra solves a lot of issues and just works.

If the bra fits, wear it.

I too have hunched/slumped since my teen years due to the girls and I have now started to stand up taller. It's hard to break that habit. Since I started doing it, while the girls show more, no one has even looked much less paid any attention.

I have delt with the same issues. Slouching, rolling my shoulders forward which created terrible posture. 

I had a fitter, several years ago, who gave me some of the greatest bra advice. She had me try a long line bra. It had an extra wide band that came down to the bottom of my rib cage. The bra was a constant reminder to keep my shoulders back and sit straight and stand straight.  It really helped me correct decade's of poor posture. 
Bras aren't for women, they're for breasts.

I too have been slouching for years.  I recently went to physical therapy for a bad shoulder and she, the PT, said I needed to stop slouching to help my shoulder.  I have been doing her exercises and working on my posture. My shoulder is better as is my projection.  Well, there is nothing I can do run with it with confidence, which is what I am doing.  Physically, I feel a lot better.

Posture is important!

Old habits die hard! It’s been a month and I’m still catching myself rolling my shoulders. We’re all works in progress.

It's been three years since I started to correct my posture and I am still slumping forward. Too many years to correct bad posture, but I am getting better.

I am actually going to physical therapy for my left shoulder and the PT told me I had terrible posture. Perhaps she just said "slumped", but I took it as terrible.  She has been working on posture and it feels great.  Clearly I was trying to hide the girls, but they certainly not hidden anymore.  It does feel good to walk upright with some confidence again. I guess I just needed a push from a third party.

Since I started wearing bras, my posture has improved greatly.  Part of it is feeling the bra hugging me reminds to sit up straighter.  I also find that when I'm braless, which is rear, if I don't sit up straight, my breasts lay on my stomach.  I don't like that feeling so I sit up straighter.   

My days of slumping are pretty much over.

Like everyone else, I slouched more than normal in attempt to hide my chest. I think it was just a natural reaction when I was embarrassed about my breast growth.

One day I realized that either with or without a bra, my breasts were still very noticeable while slouching. That's when I began trying to correct my posture. Yeah, it gave me a little more protrusion but that was no more noticeable than when I slouched. The bras I wear, though not minimizing, help round things out so the protrusion isn't a big deal.

I never had great posture anyway, so I'm trying to undo the bad habits that I had before my breast growth became noticeable.
If I'm going to have them, I want them to look good!

It’s been three months now and still catching myself, but not as much. I may catch myself for the rest of my life but for the most part I think I have improved my posture to some extent.
