Hi everyone.  New guy here.

Tell me what you see. 

I was dealing with a medical condition a year or so ago, and I was on some cortisol steroids for several months.  That is when I noticed my breasts starting to grow.

After reading some of your posts I am actually considering a bra.  I believe it would help provide support and comfort for my growing breasts.

What do you guys think?

Thank you for your time.

Definitely breast development. Reminds me of when I first started to grow breasts when I was still in elementary school.

I think it is certainly worth trying a bra and get some initial impressions how you feel wearing one. Your breasts may continue to grow and you may find that a bra is increasingly helpful in many ways.
If the bra fits, wear it.

Yeah, looks like stage 2 gyno to me. (not a doctor) Definitely at the cusp of needing a bra. Really depends on your comfort. If the jiggle is getting to you, you should experiment with at least a pullover.

Oh, yes, without a doubt, significant gynecomastia.  So good you are planning to start wearing a bra.

You clearly have developed breasts and they are definitely female in appearance, with feminine nipples even.  And, as you said, you are still growing.:)

When you first put on a bra, you will notice how much better it feels with everything nicely supported and held in place.  And I bet you will instantly feel better about having breasts, probably even a bit proud of how well you can fill the cups of your bra.

You will notice how a bra improves your appearance, more polished and put-together, no more jiggling and nipping out, and your tops will look better over your rounded, lifted bust.

Thank you Dale, blad and Traveler for your quick responses. 

Oddly enough the idea of wearing a bra does not bother me.  The jiggle is irritating, especially when I do any physical activity.  Also when I am sitting (I work in the office) the fold under my breasts bugs me.

That is where I am at now. 
And i too am still growing. 

though it fluxuates, i have a band size of 44. (Actually 43-1/2) 

Bust size is now fluctuating between 47-48 inches. I was at 46 5 months ago. 

My breasts have been sore lately and at times feel them actually moving in the bra while sitting at work. 

Yours are well defined and the thing to remember is that if you were to remove the tissue from your chest and put it onto an average female, they would probably hit a C or D cup in proportion. 

Mens chests are wider so they don't appear as large in comparison, but the weight is definitely there and can be quite painful.

Taxmapper, thank you for your comments. 

I’ve done some initial measurements on myself.   My band measurement is 39.5 and my bust measures at 43. 

I am guessing I’d be a 40B or 40C??

You definitely have some glandular growth but you also seem to be a little over weight. Not a jab at you just observing. Reducing weight and working out even a little routinely will minimize your breasts a bit though the glandular growth that appears to be will remain as is. But no telling how much is and isn’t permanent tissue until losing any or a little weight to see what reduces. I don’t think you have feminine nipples and areolas contrary to what many will always say even on the flattest of chest. Given your size and body shape from what is observed if you went shirtless I doubt anyone would really give much notice or attention to. However if wearing a bra is more comfortable than not and are ok with it. I strongly advise it. My chest is seemingly well on its way to being breasts and it sucks but I am glad for bras as as sore as they’ve become it definitely helps. My sweaters and shirts depending on the bra and style of top either shows a bit or none or a lot but in end I just quit caring and wear what holds me in best. If that works for you I applaud it I wish more men would and normalize the idea of a man in a bra.

Dudewithboobs, thank you for your comments.  

I realize I could loose some weight, but I don’t think it’ll help much.  I am 6’4” and 225 lbs.  My waist measures 36” so I don’t feel like I am not too out of shape.

Nah seem to be ok. I’m a 36 waist myself. And I’d agree on it won’t help much. Doctors will say to lose weight and it’s great advice health wise. But reducing size wise I don’t see it occurring. I’m 5’11” 195lbs and was 210 and my chest has grown and only become more obvious as my chest has filled and stomach slimmed it sucks but coming to grips with having t—s is relaxing. Wife even said the other day you’re not wearing a shirt when I went to bed and I was like nah I quit caring about hiding my chest. She’s like good for you. Now if I can only get her to say the same about bras lol. Kudos on accepting. Surgery is such a waste of money.

Your nipples look a bit puffy/conical to me. Can you feel glandular tissue behind them?   That puffy/clinical look is consistent with female breast development.  Do your nipples ever get itchy?

Dale, my nipples do itch sometimes, and they feel a little sensitive when rubbed against my undershirts. 

Often they look much more puffy then they look in my picture.

From what you described, it seems you are developing just like females do. As your breasts continue to grow, your nipples will get bigger, flatter as opposed to puffy, and even more feminine and you will need a padded bra or nipple petals to keep your nipples from always showing through your  tops.

You will only grow larger and develop if whatever may be causing the issue continues and hasn’t plateaued or become stagnant. Also your areolas and nipple changes is largely based on endocrine changes not just cause tissue has or is growing. The areola changes typically is brought on when prolactin levels are elevated significantly hence why a woman’s areolas change dramatically during pregnancy and post pregnancy as the body tries to rebalance. If you have elevated estrogen levels you may grow breast tissue but may not see other changes other than enlargement of the breast. No feminization to the breast aesthetic such as areola and so forth this is also why men with gynecomastia tend to have dramatically different shape and contour of breast than a trans woman does who is loaded with hormones causing estrogen prolactin estradiol anti androgens and so forth to allow such changes and development to appear more feminine. I wouldn’t think your breasts are going to suddenly lift up and perk up with puffy and large areolas and become female in appearance. That takes a lot of chemistry in the body to cause it. It can happen but based on gynecomastia cases I wouldn’t think it’s likely. 

It’s winter time depending where you live nipple itching can simply be dry skin. It can also be signs of growth occurring. Time tells but it is a sign of growth but no more than a cough is a sign of Covid. Could be probably isn’t but maybe.

Thank you everyone for sharing your thoughts and experiences.

I think I’ll try a bra sometime soon to see if it helps. 

If my gyno gets worse I’d rather support my breasts than to go under the knife.
