Title: What size did it become noticable and when did you accept it
Post by: steven618 on April 09, 2017, 03:34:04 PM
I often read on here people freaking out over what is nothing, and then others who have come to accept that they have c d even dd and beyond breasts. Some bigger folks and some fairly in shape. While the range and age varies person to person and the cause can be medical, anatomically genetic, disease to nothing at all causing it (which always makes me wonder cause obviously something is), I wonder when people felt compelled to quit wearing the fitted shirts and go to the patterns, pockets, and size up. My breasts go through spurts and I will notice time to time they're growing and then they'll stop for a few months and then start again slowly but surely. I look at myself in the mirror with shirts and I am in decent shape and love my fitted shirts that show off my arms and abdomen, but my chest area is now rounding out and projecting more and even when I flex my chest you can grab a mild handful of loose skin from the breast tissue taking over. Other shirts kind of hang off my chest and create space at the bottom of my shirt to the waist. Etc, etc....curious when did you finally go, i can no longer wear this anymore? I feel even if my chest went from the large a cup i am now to a c or d, I'd still try and wear fitted shirts, i'm naive as hell and feel it could be passed off, till i look at images of women in t shirts, not pervertedly just to see how naive i am and go yeah if i grow anymore i'm gonna look like a freak...

I'm 59 and had gyno as a kid or teen and never thought about it and never got any crap about it mostly because I could kick the crap out of anyone who would say anything about it, but I wasn't a bully and I didn't care about it either!

In the Navy I was a ships diver and in very good condition, but the guys would say to me "petty officer ski, please cover your top too when your come back from the shower, you make use miss our wives more" but that was in fun, as they all knew I could kick their ass too!

It wasn't until I got to b/c cup I started to wear a bra off and on, and I was thinking I was only a DD cup when my doctor told me to go for a formal fitting that I found out that I was a 46H!

All along my wife and daughter's told me that I should be wearing a bra! They have been very supportive all along, but still I don't like wearing them all the time even as big as I am.

I was 12 or 13 when I heard my grandmother tell my mom "he needs to start wearing a bra! " The next day, I was trying on some bras that my sister had outgrown. Those were 34B s. It wasn't long before I was a C cup. I was recently fitted with a Fantasie bra in a 36G  (UK) which is a 36I  (US). 
I've accepted them. I don't mind wearing a bra. I'm more comfortable with it than without.

To be honest I dont know when mine actually started, I never had the chest of a muscular man, just boobs that were sort of round.  I really noticed these and the size right after I turned 21.  I grabbed a fabric tape and took a measurement and came up with 34DDD, anyway I kept tabs on their growth for awhile and they never seemed to change. I was at my peak 165lbs at 6'3" I was carrying chevy engine heads one in each hand and could lift a bare block iron chevy engine.  Having boobs to get in my way was...well, not inspiring. I did eventually fill into this body but with that came everything else.  Accepted it as this is life and here I am.

Dane, be careful with that back, as I used to lift things and carry things that I should have used a 2 wheeler or cart and 3 back surgeries later, well as I said, 3 back surgeries later live and learn!

I noticed that I was different when I was probably 14.  I never had the chiseled chest even though I did a lot of lifting to try and get one.  I grew up on a farm and then worked on another farm in high school and between semesters while going to college and hard physical work was all part of my growing up.  I entered the law enforcement arena when I was 24 and I attended three different academies while changing jobs so I did lots of distance running.  All the while, my chest never lost that soft appearance.  Fast forward to retirement and being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and being prescribed prednisone for over a year and a half.  That soft chest appearance decided it was time to become real breasts.  At first it was why am I running into things with my chest, and then it was why aren't my shirts fitting like they used to?  And my new family members keep on growing.  I'm now in a 40D and given the soreness/pain beneath my nipples, the "girls" aren't done maturing yet.  I just recently accepted the fact that I have breasts and that I need to take care of them as surgery isn't an option for me.  
Now, it's time to find bras other than sports bras, that will give them the support needed so I don't have to put up with the soreness of having two monkeys acting like they're playing football under my shirts.  The sports bras work intially; but with time I realized that; 1 they're too warm and 2 they're really uncomfortable after a few hours.  I just received my first two underwired bras today and I can tell you the difference I'm feeling is unbelievable for me.  There's no going back now.  As some of you have repeatedly stated bras are for breasts, not women or men.  Take care of them guys!

It wouldn't hurt to go and have a formal fitting even if you feel the bras you have work. I went for many years thinking that but after the fitting I found out what real comfort was!

Just some advice from a bra wearing guy with years under his breast, lol!

This is an interesting discussion.

At what size did it become noticable?
When I was 12 I started to receive comments (firstly at swimming pool, later at school). I can guess I was around a B cup. At the age of 16 it became really noticeable, I grew quite a lot in a short time (during summer), moving to a D cup. I was really confused and mockery at school was really persistent at that point.

When did you accept it?
I guess it's when I started wearing a bra regularly. Because of all the mockery at school I was really concerned about my breasts and I couldn't imagine myself in a bra. During my university years I realised surgery wasn't an option for me and I started to experiment bra wearing starting from sports bra then moving to comfy full cup models. Stairs, running or just even walking was an improvement!

I first noticed development at 10 years old. By the time I was 12 everybody noticed. I have a genetic condition called klienfelter syndrom. Two x and one y chromosome.
My breasts continued to develop until I was in my early 30's. Depending on the bra style and manufacturers I am a D cup in most bras, a DD in some and a C in a few.
I have been wearing bras since I was 20. I am 71 now.

During middle age, I always had lots of breast tissue, my kids called them moobs.  While in my late teens, and twenties, I often went with out a shirt, by time I was in mid thirties, the shirt stayed on most of time.
Not a real concern till late 50's when I was put on drugs to manage  prostrate issues.  Soon after, my breast really started to develop and gained shape as well.  
I remember mentioning it to my GP  about that time, and it was passed off as maybe you should lose a bit of weight.  About 5-6 years ago, I mentioned that my upper chest often felt like muscle strains after a good day in yard, and my GP took another look at my breast, and she said, my these seem to be growing, we need to check your hormone levels but you may have to consider getting some support for these which will probably provide some relief.  
I went down the road of trying different types of compression vests, sports bras, and finally tried different full support bras, much more comfortable and the strain went away as well.
Breast growth has continued but slowed a bit as meds were adjusted, but  did learn the benefit of a good fitting bra, now fitting a full 48 B or 46 C depending on style.
You could say acceptance came once I became aware of what a good bra can do, as comfort and lack of muscle strain is far more important to me than a bit of noticeable  projection if I wear the wrong shirt.

For me, this is actually a somewhat new condition. When I first saw my doctor about this I was [depending on how you messure] a 36C/38B ish? Now I have about a 36D. If anyone wants help finding a bra go to https://www.reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/. Very accepting of guys with Gynecomastia. Lots of people willing to help but I suggest reading the beginner's guide first.
I haven't worn fitted shirt since I was in the service. Then working at a desk I gained weight. So that might have helped but I have lost over 60 pounds [due to illness, not a diet]. That means all my shirts are a bit big. So I guess the fitted shirt issue has never been one for me. It's also about attitude and getting something that fits, whatever you choose. In a well-fitted bra and a non-fitted shirt, all you tell is that it looks like I have big pecs.
Have you thought about some of the compression shirts? Those might give you the fitted look you want and could be worn under a fitted button shirt. It's all about options. What makes you comfortable. You may need different garments depending on what you want to wear. So, it's not impossible but just might require some work.
Good Luck,
Boomer

I'm honestly more than okay with wearing a bra and have no shame in it, i wear a barely there comfort bra, it is seamless and wireless and gives good support but doesn't constrict too bad. However of the 4 I had 3 got ruined in the wash somehow so I have to order more eventually. As I continue to feel my chest grow larger here and there and shirts are getting tighter than before in the chest area. My fear is just the crease i am now getting in my shirts where the breasts are beginning to push out to a noticeable state and from the front it's fine but from the sides all you see is a chest poking out causing the shirt to basically hang off. It sucks but im dealing with it well i just dont want my wife to get turned off by it if it gets too large of an issue

That is a problem with fitted shirts and boobs, they show boobs. It's just the way it is. You might look at changing your look. Unless you want to go to compression garments. The choice is up to you.

thanks, I'm pretty muscular so I will likely wear fitted shirts till it is just embarrassing if they continue to grow which it seems that almost everyone here ends up with a c or d cup :( but I know all body's are different just feel naive in assuming if they develop more and move in to full a or b cup territory that no one will notice but maybe at 30 I'm just quitting to care 
Title: Re: What size did it become noticable and when did you accept it
Post by: Boomer on May 10, 2017, 04:02:35 PM
I can understand. Everybody is different. Remember it could be worse, a friend from a different group has 2 totally different breast sizes. One side is a C the other is an A. But he takes it in stride and he's about your age. Hell, me I'll be 50 in 2 months, I gave up that look a long time ago. Not to say that I don't have some great fitting clothes but they aren't fitted. LOL, giving up the fitted shirt a while ago and it gave me a lot more flexibility and that was well before boobs. It's also about how you project yourself. I have 36Ds and have had people look directly at me in the chest and nothing has ever been said to me. I can hide them somewhat well unless I'm only wearing a T-Shirt and then no chance in hell.
Good Luck and I hope you stop growing. Also, remember whatever you do just make sure you feel comfortable and remain confident. That helps also. If you act like something is wrong when someone looks at your chest, then they will look harder. It takes work and I'm not 100% every day.

I always had gyno but I also was built very well else were! I got built up as a kid on the farm in the summer at my uncles and work cement and as a carpenter before I even went into the Navy! I had 22" biceps at the age of 20 when I went into the Navy, but I had boobs to that just were not pectoral muscle!

After 11 years of service and several more years of construction I got stronger and bigger boobs as well, but I still wear tee shirts to this day, but many of the days I have a 46H bra under the tee shirt! I just buy high quality tees one size to big now! I also wear a leather vest a lot too, that also helps cover the side boob and the shoulder holster as well, lol!

It turned out I had familial gynecomastia.  All the males and all the females from my mother's line so far both developed large early breasts.  By 12 I had B cup breasts.  By the next year, 7th grade, I was put in "skins" by every coach there whenever possible for my now C cup breasts.  It was awful.  I went through a short period of hiding. It was over by 24 when I was injured and had much more important things to worry about.  I started hanging out with a nudist girl.  Now I go with about the 90% or so I see  that don't hide them, just wear whatever shirt they find comfortable.

No shit!  With my boobs they do hide my backup very well, but I use the chain type holster for that with either my 9mm Derringer, or North America Arms mini! It works very well.

There are advantages to having big breast if you use them right! LOL

I had a bit of a surprise the other day.  Now, to the best of my knowledge, my breasts haven't grown in decades except +-1 cup size from variations in edema.  So this is just a matter of perceptions.  This idea of holsters and bras was interesting.  I was playing around to see how that might fit, if I were to go that direction at all.  I was astonished and how much of my breasts are actually in my armpits.  They go way off to the side and look much more sizable than they look from the front.

I developed breasts as a teenager and endured years of anguish and hiding my chest.  I didn't come to terms with having breasts until my late 40's.  I've worn a bra for 10 years and prefer underwire bras in the T-shirt style. I'm a 38B.

It was two years earlier that I had had bilateral orchitis that almost destroyed my testes.  I was in my early 50s (I am 65 now) and I distinctly remember looking in the mirror, stripped to the waist whilst shaving.  I remember the tingling of shock that washed over me like cold water as I saw two perfectly round hemispheres on my slim chest.  Alright, they were very shallow but quite wide, maybe 3 inches.  Probably unnoticeable by others but I instantly realised that I was growing breasts, this was a shape that was just not me. That was about 14 years ago, I now have a pair of 38 double Ds or E that appear to be still growing.  Picture taken two years ago.  https://www.gynecomastia.org/smf/index.php?topic=31004.0 (https://www.gynecomastia.org/smf/index.php?topic=31004.0)

I knew something was going on but I didn't think much about it because I was overweight at 5'11" and 205. I'm kind of like you, I dropped a lot of weight and now my breasts are noticeable. At 155 pounds The gyno has given me a bit of a feminine shape 41-31-40 but it's ok. I usually wear a 38c and find the women's shirts now fit better. I'd rather look fit with a few curves than sloppy like I used to.

My Mother noticed it when I was 12 to 13 years old.  That would have been 1949-50.  At that time there was not much that could be done. The Doctor said it usually goes away, That was not true in my case.  Since there was not really an option, there was no choice but to accept it.  
At the Police Academy, when he pinned my Badge on my uniform, the Deputy Chief stood back and remarked: "Now here's a lad that displays his badge proudly."  Yes, I too laughed.

I was a full b-cup when mine became noticeable. Now at a full 36d, I have embraced the changes and no longer have any hang ups about what Mother Nature has blessed me with. Now, I actually enjoy wearing my bra on a daily basis and can't imagine not having breasts now.

I  was 9 or 10 when they were first noticeable. Started wearing a bra occasionally when I was 11 or 12 and at 14, I was wearing a bra fulltime. In my early teens I was often mistaken for a tomboy.

I was 12 when I noticed and got scared. I ask my mom about these big bumps under each nipple. They hurt bad. She got mad and pushed me out of the house. Dad too. About 20 when they got obvious. Now at 50 I have large womanly breasts I guess. I always wear baggy shirts to hide but hasn't worked well since I seem to be growing again now. My ex said once my boobs are bigger than hers. Maybe. But she had big ones. Anyway, I have always accepted but is getting very hard now.

I wear a bra sometimes when I know I won't be around people much. Afraid they might notice since I am obviously male and pretty skinny. I have accepted my condition but is getting harder to do. I saw myself in a security camera tv at the store yesterday. My breasts were noticeable and I see others looking now. Oh well.

Probably became obvious in my last year of high school but I still hid them pretty well I think.  I was hyper paranoid.

Just started to finally accept them in the last few weeks.  I'm 25.

thanks for the replies here ya'll i woke up this morning to a sore and itchy chest and that always reminds me of growth occurring which i hate and can't undestand what is causing it but at this point i have a solid F it mentality about it. I didn't think it was getting too noticeable but a few weeks ago at a Cardinals game with my wife, i went to the concession stands and when standing in line, a woman touched my chest and guess she felt how squishy it was for lack of better adjectives and said "im sorry i saw your arms and thought you had pecs" she looked away for a moment embarrassed looking, and i just shrugged it off, nad she turned back and said "my boyfriend has boobs too, i'm sorry for touching" i was like wtf...perk of working out i guess is my chest begins to match my body in a sense, until people actually touch it. 
I was getting dressed the other day at work after a shift and one of the guys asked me if i was growing T**ts, i said nah just haven't been working the chest like i usually have and guess it's gotten soft. It's definitely made me aware that maybe i have crossed a threshold. Which is not good but what can ya do..

31 now

What can you do?  Forget about them.  It's not worth making yourself miserable all your life because of the breasts that 70%  or so have the appearance of breasts in the end.  Get tests and know what is going on as much as anybody, and then forget about them.  Wear what you want that is comfortable and do what you want and swim and all those things.  Just don't tell yourself stories that scare you.  This is something that just isn't a real problem.  I've never met a girl or woman who cared that I had breasts often larger than hers.

Couple of years ago, wife and I where at bathroom counter, getting ready to end the day. My chest got my attention, so I asked, do I have boobs. Wife calmly responded, you've had boobs. After some looking and measurements I decide I'm around 40-B or 42-A. Once I found this sight, and went through some of the threads, I thought lose weigh, work out, get back to running, get back to normal. Did not go as planned. Now I lost weigh 35 lbs. ab's starting to develop, but so are other things, now a solid 38-C and in a couple of brands my cup runith over. Never had surgery other than knee scoped, so I'm hoping to avoid any surgery. I didn't get to pick hair, or eye color, height, even race or gender. To me it's you take what you get and deal with it. If wearing support  will help deal with movement and pain then that is my solution. Thankful for this site, place to unload with people that understand.

I was a little different. I started developing at puberty and thus started wearing a bra fulltime by 14. I'm a 36H in most of my bras. 
If you're a 38C, then you should be wearing a bra fulltime as well. There's no shame in wearing a bra. It's just a garment.

Jin,
Good for you! That's pretty much my opinion, too. However, I'm still careful not to "flaunt" them around family who might be embarrassed or offended.

By the time I was 13-14 years old I was a solid B cup. It was very noticeable in school to others and a source of many comments.

At that time my mother had taken me to a specialist to have them examined; I was never given much feed back about that medical visit or any further discussion by my mom. Maybe we were both too embarrassed to talk about it. I wish I had pursued the topic more then.

Around the same time I began to try on bras and found a degree of acceptance when I was wearing a bra. The more I wore a bra the more I accepted them. The difficulty was feeling safe to wear a bra as much as I wanted while still in school. It was better once in university as you are lost in a sea of students.

The girls became noticeable early in junior high. I didn't accept them until my 50's and then started wearing a bra, something I wish I had done years ago. It would have saved a lot of pain being unsupported all those years with DD's.

By 12 I had B cup breasts.  By the next year, 7th grade, I was put in "skins" by every coach there whenever possible for my now C cup breasts.  It was awful. 
Same here. High school gym class is when I and everyone else first started to notice. Lots of name-calling, and I'm pretty sure my gym teacher got a kick out of it because I always ended up on the "skins" team.

I was 16 when I started wearing a bra fulltime.  I really had to. I was a 34C. I graduated from high school wearing 36DD. My sister and I were the same size.

As far as being noticed,  I was in Lowe's yesterday,  wearing just a tshirt over my bra. One of the associates (female) came up to me and said "I.was at that concert too" (referring to my concert tshirt). It was only after the fact that she noticed how well endowed I was. She gave me.a look that I read.as "good for you" and told me "it.goes good with what you're wearing ".

That would be a great feeling lol. I am in the wedding business and often wonder if someone seen me in a bra if they would applaud and approve or go wtf. Way social media is now days i just hate running the risk of it. Im pretty muscular and such so not like id be confused as trying to be whatever but still. Almost wish I was a c cup or d so i could warrant the need via wife or understanding of others.

Being large doesn't mean you would be understood. The ratio of understand verses not understood is pretty large. I am lucky to have a VERY select group of women who understand, but I am far from "one of the girls" and I don't try to be either. Other than breasts and a common experience with them, we are still two different sexes.

I became noticeable when the wife said so.  I was out mowing the front and back yard in just my undershirt on a very hot day.  I came in and fell in to the recliner sweaty as hell. the wife took one look at my under shirt and said two things. "you need a bra" and your bigger than outer daughter.  Next day we went bra shopping.

 What a lovely and loving woman. It should make you feel close to her every time you put on a bra. I hope you are wearing a bra just as a woman does.   So good you are up to posting again.  Missed you.
