my gyne
« on: May 20, 2019, 06:41:43 PM »

I've been obese for most of my life. I didn't notice/care/understand what was going on with my chest for a long time, just thought it was fat. But the shape has been getting my attention recently and looks pretty fem. There seems to be structure behind the nips, not sure when that showed up. Based on what I've read they could be breast buds? Or am I beyond that?  I'm not interested in surgery at this point, my weight probably takes it out of the equation anyway.  5'8" 340lbs. I battle a lot of depression and self image issues and had just given up on everything. I'm on anti-depression meds now and I'm starting to care again.

Based on the lifted nipple and the curving of the breast and the crease you can see in the fold of the breast in the upper area I would say it is definitely glandular and not just adipose...breast tissue not fat. Your breasts are just that, and whether you choose to wear a bra or not, do what is best to your preferences. Losing weight would probably help decrease some size but I would assume they would remain quite sizable. Which as a man with breasts who has come to accept, I would advocate that it is far from the worst thing and has come to be one of my fav things about my body. 
I am sorry you have given up, but I hope you find a new found excitement in life. It is no secret that being unhealthy weight wise has a distinct correlation to the mental state of one's being. I hope you find something that gets you going, active, and moving toward a healthier lifestyle. If you do, I have no doubt that you will immediately reap the results of feeling better mentally, physically and emotionally. I know this forum is more about discussing breasts and the acceptance of such things whether surgery or anti surgery. But if you ever need an ear to just vent and discuss things with feel free to private message me at any time. I battled depression for a long time and it was after a long time of self loathing and self detest that I finally gave up on giving up and got up and changed things and it's a daily struggle to be better day to day but staying focused will make a slowly but surely progression toward greater tomorrows.

You have large female breasts with feminine nipples. You should be wearing a bra like a woman does.

Thank you Steven. So definitely breasts then. It might seem odd to other people that I wouldn't notice their growth, but when you spend decades avoiding looking at yourself and just going day to day in a fog...lots can happen that you don't notice until you "wake up".  I appreciate the offer of support, I will keep it in mind.

Thanks SideSet. Sure wish there was some feeling in them since I'm going to be carrying them around for a while. 

Based on my rough measurements:

Under: 51"
Bust: 54"

That puts me at what, 50C territory?

You're not alone out there, we are in numbers greater then you ever thought, that is men with breast! Yes, men with breast enlargement probably out number those without now days if you really just sit one day and do your own unofficial survey at a local mall!

Weight loss will be good for you for more reasons then I'm going to list, trust me as I've been fighting it for over 30 years and now can proudly claim a 80 pound loss! But as I said that was over 30 years and at 61 I can not reclaim the health that I have lost!

As Steven said, you may lose some of the breast but not all, and I have found that out for myself.  I have no idea how much yet as I have not gone in for another professional fitting nor do I plan to for awhile.  I just will use pull over bras until then, but I do know I'm not a 46H any longer!

I wish you all the luck and hope that this forum will be helpful for you!

I'd rather be hated for who I am, then loved for who I'm not!

I am who I am,  and I'm not going to change to please anyone!

You're right Bob, I did some people watching recently at a public place and was surprised the number of guys I saw sporting breasts once I was paying attention to it.  I usually just wear a t-shirt at work and home, nobody has ever talked to me about it even though I show quite a bit but my big belly probably draws the attention away. I became pretty self-conscious about it a few months ago and felt like I was basically flashing everyone and have started wearing gyne compression shirts. They're rather uncomfortable to wear all day though. I have to take it off every 4 hours or so for a few minutes  or else it gets really unbearable. 

Nice job on the 80 lbs, how did you do it?

The first 30lbs was by using the Atkins diet but that was years ago,  and I continued to use that life style for years but would go up and down 10/15 pounds and it was driving me crazy at times! Then my endocrinologist put me on Victoza along with my insulin for my diabetes and the weight just started coming off!

It has been a blessing for me as far as my weight loss!

I'm a little late to the party but experienced almost exactly the same thing.

I developed in puberty. After I hit my 20s it was obvious that I would not be losing the girls. I too became morbidly obese at 330 lbs. I measured myself at a 48D. My measurements were not much different than yours. Over time I would half heartedly lose 50 or 60 pounds and the girls would be more prominent after each attempt and I eventually gave up trying. Then my health began to approach a point where I would die of either a heart attack or stroke. It wasn't an if, it was a when. I had to come to terms with my chest. It had been running my life since puberty. I had to find a way to change it.

I went to a doctor who specialized in weight loss. Started to lose weight and started to excercise. After about 6 months, I had lost about 40 lbs and had lost some size in my breasts. I also developed ptosis, or breast sag due to the weight loss. My saggy boobs was making it painful to exercise. Luckily I had been assigned to a female doctor in the practice. At one visit I told her of the pain I had and the rash that had developed where my breasts were resting on my chest. She examined me and suggested I should consider some kind of breast support to lift the breasts off my chest and to support them during exercise so as not to cause an injury to my chest or breast. So started my bra journey.

I immediately got relief and the support felt wonderful. I began to have control over my chest and it gave me an unexpected level of confidence that I hadn't had since I developed. Between bra styles and cuts of clothing I now control what my chest looks like. I have now lost almost 100 lbs and now wear 38DD underwire bras all the time and am hardly even noticed now.

I too had given up. I am glad I tried one more time. There are plenty of guys who wear bras for support and has nothing to do with sexuality. Life has improved for me.

We are all here to help and support you no matter what you decide to do. Just know you are not alone.
