Title: My chest, feedback please
Post by: Charmed on July 07, 2021, 05:56:43 PM
My chest has always been something I've tried to hide or been ashamed of, but I've started getting into the mindset of embracing them.  I would appreciate feedback on how they look?  Thanks!

Wow, really?  No, I haven't.  I definitely have thought about trying one.

I think it is worth trying a bra for a while to find out if you like the support it can provide. I think a lot of guys are surprised how well it works once they actually try one.

Those are definitely female breasts. It's really up to you whether you wear a bra or not. I am 100% positive that you would benefit from what a bra would offer you.

I started wearing a bra when I was 12 years old.I wore a bra full time when I was 16 and have worn one every day since. Bras are good things for those of us who need them, benefit from them.

Charmed,

I'm assuming from your username that you are somewhat proud of your chest nowadays, even if you struggled to accept it before.

Realistically you don't need to wear a bra at all if you don't want to, but if you suffer from nipple sensitivity/pain/discomfort from jiggling etc. then it is something that you should at least consider.

Are you in a relationship? Do you feel comfortable discussing this with your partner?

Having started development at puberty, I would have been in much better places, had I not waited decades to wear full time. I knew that I felt better, supported, and just ....right. But I let my head get in the way. It is an extremely personal choice, but I would echo previous posts with the benefits of properly fitting support.

 I agree your breasts are feminine looking and that you would probably feel and look better in a bra, everything nicely held in place and supported and nicely shaped and lifted.  Guessing you are may be a B cup

I’m gonna go on the opposition of things. I think your chest looks like a pretty generic male chest. Based on the image alone it looks like weight may be a factor and could benefit possibly in losing a few pounds. We all could. I would definitely not call these female breasts in shape size aesthetic contour or any definition of design of a breast. There is certainly some padding there but if I saw you shirtless I wouldn’t think anything of it or see anything “unnatural” or assume that guys got t^^ts.
Everyone here is always gonna tell anyone and everyone they need to be in a bra. It’s reflex at this point. Personally if it is giving you probable with comfort and causing pain or disturbance of any sort then a bra can definitely be a beneficial remedy to that but if it doesn’t cause any issue then I’d say you’re fine. Your chest doesn’t look bad at all female at all or problematic. Of course this is an opinion based on a single image and only you can determine if it’s causing issue and just cause to try bras as a solution. But I don’t think you need one personally.

I disagree that a lot the members of the forum are telling you to wear a bra.  They are saying that if you looking for a way to control the movement of your breasts and to help with the way they look, then a bra could help out.  Ultimately it’s up to you on whether or not you do it.  It’s individual thing and for many of us in the forum, a bra works for us.

Couldn’t Agree to disagree to the bra point more. But agree it is preference.

I think once you try a bra, you will feel differently about your breasts.

Funny how people are so quick to post "you have womanly breasts". I got a lot of those comments from my pictures.

To me, womanly breasts have large nips/areolas and they hang over. If your nipples aren't big and your boobs stay up on your chest without doubling over, you do not have womanly breasts. A woman with those breasts might feel cheated. People in her breast forum might post and say she has man-boobs. ;D

Post by: Dudewithboobs on July 09, 2021, 12:22:39 PM
Lmao agreed and funny. I believe there are people here who have an immense fascination and honesty fetishize the idea of male breasts. I’ve seen the same people tell guys who post here who clearly have zero showing of breast growth or have no indication of anything that is remotely feminine and be told they have breasts and should get a bra and could benefit from a professional fitting. 

There was a post by someone under the name gendernormssuck the other day and the thread got locked cause quite honestly he was calling it exactly how it is and has become here. 

I’ve seen users here on Reddit on Quora and other forums who post dressing up as women and chiming in on topics of cross dressing and being trans and so forth and good for them serious applause. Be you and be proud. And it makes ya realize why those are the same people here telling any and every guy on earth to get a bra fitting. To tell men who are flat as a board they have female breasts. Who men who have zero growth and areolas are dimes and show no similarity to a breast at all that they have very feminine breasts. 

Sorry for the rant. This forum just gets ridiculous with the majority of users here now days going you need a bra and being told they have t^^ts

Not all women have large "feminine" breasts. They come in all shapes and sizes. Your opinion of what breasts "should" or "do" look like has been heavily influenced by media, porn, or social pressure from somewhere. I understand that you hated yours so much that you chopped them off. and are bitter and confrontational in most of the posts I have read of yours. I do not have polite words for bullies, or for those that are still pissed off at the actions of the bullies in their life, and choose to spread that. Acceptance and being helpful requires an open mind to those who fit outside of the mainstream. If you cannot do this, stop posting on acceptance threads, or those that may become them.

Yes, many of us have a little to a lot of extra weight, But he didn't ask what you are implying. He (the op) asked for and received our opinions on his chest shape. Our assessments are not coming from a place of torment. If mine have been received that way, please let me know.

I agree.  There are a few posters here that pretend they are here for support guys with gyno, but if you look at what they post, it is obvious they have transgender agenda.  Why else would they encourage guys to wear bras, panties, camisoles, tankinis, women's blouses, and such.  If anyone posts a picture of a guy wearing a bra, the accolade that they look great come rolling in, even though the picture is taken from waist height and cropped small, and hard to tell if the bra even has a proper fit.  Even if it fits well, they don't look good, they look like a guy wearing a bra.  Their are lots of comments about boobs being female in appearance, even though most aren't.  Men''s breast are typically wider, shallower, have nipples in a different postion, and does not have a round outline.  They do not look feminine.

P r I have no clue what you’re talking about if replyin to me. I clearly stated breasts come in all shapes sizes and aesthetics and my idea of breasts have been influenced zero by media sex porn etc. I’ve seen a lot of breasts in my time and none looked the same as the next I’m very aware not all women’s breasts are perky self supporting large shimmery areolas with eraser nipples. That’s a facade that some surely have but commonly don’t.
I also haven’t “chopped mine off” I stated a few days ago how I felt I had grown more so unsure where you get that….I also haven’t been bullied or been a bully. An honest perspective is not an ill intended attack such as bullying. I am not crazy active but I am fairly active I believe to be and rarely do I have harsh words to give out unless it’s when calling a spade a spade.
Acceptance does require all that you said it does. But it does not require forcing or injecting a singular opinion as if it’s fact. Suggesting a bra and telling people to be in a bra or go buy a bra or get fitted for a bra is very different. Not asking questions to understand the overall thought or context and instead dashing in to bras is not really assisting it’s insisting. Assisting and insisting also very different. The poster asked how it looks and he’s accepting it etc did not ask initially how do I look and what’s your tips on trying bras out.
I don’t think your comments are coming from a place of torment but I do think you failed miserably in assessing and understanding what I was saying and made clearly inaccurate statements in your reply about me. But hey that’s America we always would rather assume to create our own opinion than assess and understand the fact.

And Gmast, I agree 100%

If one comes here and reads the various posts in the acceptance area, and then posts in the acceptance area, then almost by definition they must be thinking that a bra is a possibility. Or else they should have posted in the surgical area only.

I am not going into the surgical posts and crying stop, try a bra first before you go any further.

So no big surprise that the discussions in the acceptance area focus more on the use of a bra for support and shaping. Don't post here if you are an anti bra or had them removed. Pick the forums dedicated to those discussing surgery for your strong opinions and we will stick to support options in the acceptance area.

Sounds logical?

Not trying to hurt anyones feelings or be confrontational, I just don't think we need to keep going over this when really its an issue of posting your thoughts in the wrong place.

Post by: Dudewithboobs on July 09, 2021, 06:52:39 PM
Sounds very logical. And think it’s a great point to make. Thank you for noting it like that. But I’d say so does hey I have had breasts for quite some time. I’ve come to accept them and am curious how they actually look to others who don’t know me or haven’t seen me and curious if they look like I may see them.
Many guys cover them up with larger clothes or shrugging shoulders etc etc and maybe a poster is in the acceptance forum for general acceptance and general community of those who have also accepted theirs. Acceptance doesn’t mean wearing a bra it just means I am no longer going to let this bother me like it has plagued me previously. I accept it. I’m ok with it. I’m good. When I joined here 4 years ago damn near every dude wore a bra. Know what else they did? They asked probing questions to get to know someone new posting or asked questions to direct their answers specifically to their interest or concern or intent. They didn’t just go oh hey they got nipples yup you got breasts you need a bra you’d benefit from a bra you should get a bra you got female breasts.

In the interest of accuracy:

"chopped them off" is misleading. If that's what the surgery entailed, I would never have considered it. We don't want to mislead new forum members. I was left with no visible scars, and that would not be the case if my breasts were chopped off.

So, you believe that people reading the thread cannot read your signature or previous posts, and determine that you had them surgically removed. You chose not to post or respond to the entirety of the post.

Why are you choosing to bully me? I have never posted anything disparaging to anyone. I have shown nothing but respect. You are not the person in charge of judging what I say and deciding where I can post. Leave that to the moderators.

Anyone concerned with the drama you are creating can search my posts. If I have said anything disparaging or insulting, I will explain myself or apologize.

If you read my posts, then you know that my journey is not over. I still have breast and I am now in a position where I have to either get a revision or accept what I have. I still feel uncomfortable and still wear an undergarment when I go out in public.  So in that regard, I have every right to participate in discussions and express my thoughts in this forum. Mine are as valid as yours.

At a certain point I think some threads get hopelessly off on some tangent and stir up negativity.

This maybe multifactorial; a spread of different view points, not reading the intent of a post correctly, posts that are not clearly written and are easy to misinterpret, a build up of emotion, and unclear intent. These things plague world conversations in general when different points of view collide. 

Posts are not like a dynamic conversation where tone and inflection are part of the mix.

No one usually feels they have the satisfaction that the other side gets their point and it goes back and forth until it just dies out from frustration. Then it shows up again in some other thread.

Try the bra, you will feel much better once you have support. I put off getting a bra for some time even though I needed one. That was years ago and I do not regret it for a minute. They are shaped, supported, do not bounce...much and look a lot better. As a side plus...they are easier to disguise if you need to. Wearing a bra places the "assets" directly behind my pockets on my shirts and the pockets break up the outline from the front. However, nothing will break up the outline from the side but since most of us gentlemen are rather blind at noticing anything out of the perceived ordinary, they will not be noticed. I only mention this as some folks have a hard time dealing with men having "assets". Be well!
