Title: My First Bra
Post by: benusa on March 27, 2022, 05:17:53 PM
Hi,
Today, I’m wearing a bra for the first time. A lot of things led me to this point. I had gyno surgery 15+ years ago and was left very flat. My hormones have recently got out of control due to having to stop an estrogen blocker a year ago. The past couple months I’ve experienced a lot of growth. I really don’t want another surgery and refuse to ever go back to a compression shirt. Ive decided I’m ok with some growth - not too much tho. They’ve felt full and heavy and I’ve had feelings of tingling to throbbing. Ive both enjoyed the growth and been horrified by it at times. I’ve felt better in tight tanks lately and like a snug fit. I’ve had a little jiggle and chaffing in some activities. After reading all kinds of posts on here, I just wanted to try a bra for around home.
I got my bra today and at first I was disappointed. It looked much too big. It’s a 34B. It has an underwire. I was thinking I should have ordered an A. Once I got it on, I was amazed at how good it felt and how it eliminated my side boobs. I can’t believe I completely filled the cups! No empty space. I don’t jiggle any more either. I’m going to wear this when at home. I could probably conceal it with certain clothing but I won’t be that bold yet. I’m hoping it will give my nips a rest and that it will help me keep tabs on when growth might become too much. I’ll try to attach photos.

Congratulations on taking this step of experimentation to see if a bra is something that can help you be more comfortable and confident. It looks like that a 34B is your size and the bra being plunge style works for your breasts. I see no quad boob or trying to fall out of the cups. Your breasts look very supported, secure and contained. I hope your chest is feeling more comfortable.

Thanks JohnDoe1,
It’s actually a 34B. I think it will take some getting used to but it feels supportive and snug.

Snug is good. You want the band to be as snug as is comfortable since the band produces 80 to 90% of support. More snug, more support. The straps shouldn't be carrying much if any load. It's basically to keep the cups from wrinkling and lifting the breasts. You want them snug enough to keep the straps from falling off the shoulders.

That bra looks great on you. You certainly do fill the cups of your bra!  How does it feel to know you are a full B cup, which is a common breast with many women?

At your bra size, you will have a wide selection of bras to choose from as you build the bra collection you are going to need. Now that you have started wearing a bra, you won’t want to stop.

Thanks guys. As far as fit, it eliminates side boobs but accentuates them - or makes them just look bigger than they are- which is fine because I’m only wearing it around home and it’s really comfortable. I didn’t realize how big they really were though. I plan to only have two bras for home use. I’m looking forward to getting home tonight and getting it on. Having pains in the left one today. I’m glad I tried it after reading all the posts.

Ben, after you get over the surprise of finding out your breasts fill the cups of your bra and that you are a B cup like so many woman, there comes the feeling of pride that you are that big and how good you look in a bra.

Since surgery left me very flat, I didn’t even imagine that they could get big again. It feels like I have glandular tissue now. I am a bit in shock and I wish I knew what to expect in terms of continued growth.

For me I used to wear it only at home, then I got jealous seeing women walking around with there bras and thought it shouldn’t only be for women. And woman that knows a I wear a bra also agree that bras shouldn’t be just for women. Some will agree that they seen men that could really use a bra.

It's tiring to have to hide it.  I wish I could just go out in a cool tank-top T-shirt and whatever bra best remedies the discomforts, without anyone particularly caring or noticing that an outline—or, gasp, my straps—were showing.  This used to be considered indecent even for women, but now no one cares.  Yeah, we get a bit jealous.  It would be nice to be able to just dress comfortably and forget about it and get on with life.

This is my third evening wearing a bra. I just think it’s very comfortable. Way better than a compression shirt. It does make me have obvious bumps in front.
Going braless at work is less noticeable but I’m becoming increasingly conscious of their shape and size. No plans to wear publicly at this time but I really like it. It’s greatly helped my posture.

I was 12 when I had my first "bra talk" with my mother and I started wearing a bra around the house. I also knew that it was comfortable and helped with the typical growing pains in my boobs. I was 16 when I had the second "bra talk" and she asked me to start wearing one all the time. I've been wearing full-time ever since. Bras work. Half of the world wakes up and puts their bra on every day because they have boobs. We just happen to be in that half.

Did your mom initiate the talk? I can’t imagine what that must have been like. We’re you just starting to get them at 12? I’m glad you are comfortable and confident.

That's really what happened. I had breasts that were bigger then even most 12 year old girls. They were supposed to go away so nobody would do surgery. She tried her best to make me comfortable. I still appreciate it and know that she did the best she could.

It sounds like she was trying to help you. I’m glad you had some kind of support at that difficult time. It sounds like you have come out well on the other side of that. Thanks for sharing. I enjoy your posts.

One question about bra fit that I just decided to post to the group. Yesterday I got home and put it on and the fit was more loose. I questioned whether it had stretched or even if I was actually a B cup. Tonight I put it on and it fits very tight. Does anyone else have extreme fluctuations in fit? I’m wondering if this is the norm or if I just have fluid retention or something?

Probably has to do with water retention.

It's also not a good idea to wear the same bra everyday. It is recommended to give at least a 24 hour to 48 hour period for the elastane in the bra time to naturally relax or you will stretch out your bra. That is why it is recommended a bra rotation of a minimum of three bras for three day rotation. The normal wear should be around 100 wears is considered normal life for a bra. Obviously size and weight of the bust will effect that number along with care and cleaning of the bra. About 4 wearings is considered a normal pattern before hand washing or gently machine washing in a lingerie bag then hang dry by the gore, not dryer, it will break the wires and no one wants their wires poking them.

I've been wearing a bra for most of my life and I do the same as John. I get about 3-4 wears out of my bra before I hand wash them. The exception is my sports bras. I actually take them into the shower with me and wash them with Olay body wash. I have a suction cup hook in the shower where I hang my sports bras to dry. 
Title: Re: My First Bra

Why do you wash sports bras in shower? Do they have a wire too?
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: aboywithgirls on April 02, 2022, 09:01:37 AM
Hi Ben 👋,

I wash my sports bra I  the shower out of pure convenience. Of course they get sweaty and can get stinky even after a single wear. So when I take my shower after my palates class, I wash my bra by hand and let it dry there too. It's clean and ready to go for another workout. 

My sports bras are underwire. I wear the Elomi Energize encapsulating sports bra. It has the best support of any sports bra that I've ever worn. I wear a 36H UK sizing. So, I need all the support that I can get.

Everyone has different things that they look for in a sports bra. I have found that an encapsulating underwire sports bra checks all the boxes for me. It gives me support, shape, and breast and self comfort. It helped me extend and intensify my workouts because my boobs were comfortable and they look good too 🥰

your sis,
😍🤗❤️🥰💋❣️

I ordered another underwire bra so I can rotate them. I also ordered two wireless sports bras for yard work. I don’t plan to wear a bra in public but have really enjoyed one around home since I got my first one a week ago. I never intended to have more than two but I’m still experimenting.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: Orb on April 03, 2022, 05:35:16 PM
Once you see the need and appreciate the comfort you'll find styles that help assist in those areas. 
Personally, I never thought I would have acquired the variety I now have either.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: benusa on April 03, 2022, 11:26:31 PM
I’m looking forward to trying a couple different ones. I thought after wearing one at home for a week I might get tired of it but I’m still wearing it every evening.

Once you have seen how fully your breasts fill the cups of your bra, how comfortable it feels having your breasts contained in a bra and how good you look in a bra, there is no turning back. You have already realized you need to wear a bra as much as any woman does.

I definitely agree.

It was an instant turning point for me a long time ago when I tried on a bra for the first time. Prior to trying a bra, I hated my breast growth and was embarrassed. But once I tried a bra and saw how well I filled it out and saw how my breasts looked held in the cups I was instantly more accepting and appreciated how it felt to wear a bra. The embarrassment in public about my breasts still required time to sort out in my mind, but it was a big first step.

But I knew from that point that I was likely going to need to wear a bra for the rest of my life to look and feel my best. 
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: Orb on April 04, 2022, 01:22:55 PM
Blad your so right.  For me it was the same.  I now enjoy being held in place with a nice fitting, nice looking bra.  I like most here will say filling it out continues to shock me however inside I'm thinking WOW.  Finding acceptance with myself has allowed me to wear nicer looking bras.  It's hard to hide the high beam look with a thinner style but feel most of the time it's acceptable as you see many men having the same issue.  I just need a bit more coverage than most to make me look the same.  There are days, like today, that while wearing, nipple chafing is down as I'm discreetly scratching away.  The itching is driving me crazy.

Hi guys,
I really thought that I would get tired of wearing a bra but I’ve came home and put it on every day for the past week. I love how it eliminates the side boob and how it feels when it lifts and cups them. I like it so much I ordered a few more bras to try. Im still not over the shock of how big the bra makes them look or how well they fill it. It’s just for home tho. Despite insistence on here, I don’t intend to wear one away from home. I don’t think I will buy any more bras for now either. I should get the ones I ordered this week. Looking forward to trying them.

Hi Ben,

I'm really happy that you have discovered the comfort that a well fitted bra can provide. I was much younger than most here when I started wearing one however, I do still remember how much better I felt and secretly, how much I liked how I looked. For almost 20 years I had worn a bra every day and thought that wearing the right layers, nobody noticed. It turned out that it was the worst kept secret in the world! It also turned out that it didn't matter. No one cared. The ladies I worked with all knew. They weren't wondering why I was wearing a bra, that part was obvious to them. They were wondering WHAT I was wearing for a bra! Women notice these things. Now, no single bra style will work for everyone, if your chest looks good as a result of the bra your wearing, someone else will want their's looking as good and want to know how you achieved the look and shape. 

Women talk and they do talk about their breasts and bras. They say what they like and don't like. They talk about where they shop and they even shop together. I quickly became aware of this after I was wearing a bra openly. My "monsters under bed" all disappeared as soon as I "turned on the light". I discovered that a was being afraid of nothing.

Update…
I ordered a couple more bras. The sports bra flattens things a bit but doesn’t have the support of the underwire. The new underwire bra has larger cups and they sort of make a dent since I don’t fill them. Overall they’re not as comfy as my first one but I will give them a try.

Post by: Johndoe1 on April 09, 2022, 05:31:38 AM
Compression sports bras do flatten you. They use compression to support and that means they will squish your breasts where underwire or structured cups will provide a pocket or encapsulate the breasts to hold and support your breasts. Different technology to do the same thing. And the name of the game in sports bras is maximum support to keep the breasts immobile for high levels of activity.

I like wire bras. I also had a void on one bra. Over time, that gap filled. Also, the bra must be comfortable and always wear such a bra.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: benusa on April 09, 2022, 08:06:38 AM
Thanks guys. I don’t know yet if I will like the sports bra. It will take getting used to. I like a snug fit but it feels more like the compression shirt I used to wear. It could hide them if I wanted to wear it publicly. Makes me look flat under a shirt.  I didn’t really give the new underwire a chance since I thought it was too big. I may return it and get another like my first. I really thought I was a 34B since the last one fit so well but maybe not.

Post by: Dudewithboobs on April 09, 2022, 11:53:45 AM
Yeah a sports bra is definitely an adjustment to the comfort of a underwire. I tend to go for more comfy pullover bras than sports bras for the tank top and secure feel of a sports bra without the strangulating my midsection feel lol. Avia makes great comfortable pullovers and I really enjoy no boundary pullover brand and their bralettes for the not crazy support giving but nice feel and lessened projection

You clearly belong in a bra as much as a woman does. It does feel nice to have everything in your bra cups, contained and lifted, doesn’t it?  How does it feel seeing your bust to look so big and shapely?  To see the cups of your bra completely filled by your breasts?
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: Dudewithboobs on April 10, 2022, 08:22:31 AM
Your breasts definitely look pretty full there. When you said it was growing back it looks like it came back with a vengeance. 

I’m in agreement with wearing a bra and seeing that you fill it and it becoming a no turning back. I wear a bra most days and some I don’t just depends if I feel like it. When I don’t feel like it I usually regret it as I feel the tug. But looking down and seeing your own chest in a bra and filling it is pretty hard to adjust to at first. For me at least it was but eventually it became normal to me and hopefully for you too. Just glad you got those around you on board it seems.

Ben,

First, that bra looks like a great fit! I'm happy that you're happy with it.

Over the years I noticed that there seem to be two aspects of wearing a bra that cannot coexist. They are comfort and concealment. 

When your breasts are concealed, it's because they are compressed is a gynecomastia vest or compression style sports bra , either of them will squash your boobs and become uncomfortable for the wearer.

To achieve comfort, a bra literally " cup" your boobs. A bra, particularly an underwire bra provides support, it shifts any side boob you have in front and out from your arm pits where they get in the way. A bra also lifts your breasts and prevents unwanted sweat and a potential rash that can and likely will occur.

I absolutely applaud 👏 you for wearing a bra that works for you. While compression works, In my opinion, comfort ad support win every time.

🤗🥰❣️😍🥰

Post by: Dudewithboobs on April 10, 2022, 09:33:19 AM
I would advocate a cami bra or general pullover bra does provide comfort and support without smashing and gives concealment with soft cups and keeps side boob up front for nice shape without projection of a underwire. I find the cami and pullover bras I wear give me great support and comfort without any smashing and decent concealing. 
Now if smashing and being flat as can be is the objective then yeah but if blending in without the risk of projecting much at all like other bras may then I think there are bras that will do the job very well without being uncomfortable at all. But I’m a large b cup not crazy busty so mass may determine what works and what no lingers an option. But definitely agree comfort wins every time.

  So true.  Never actually thought about it that way but found you can't have it both ways.  I actually like and enjoy the comfort, fit  and support of my underwires however it does give a much different profile.  
  I can see the fit is good with that one your wearing.  There are times even I sacrifice a bit of comfort and wear one that is a soft cup to reduce the definition of each breast if you will.

I've posted this bra before. It's any Elomi Matilda. It's an underwire with just a thin lace mesh cup. Everyone is different and everyone has different looks that they are trying to achieve. There is no one right answer for what bra to wear. I went through a phase in my 20s where I wore minimizer bras with a compression tops over it. Finally, I decided that wasn't comfortable. I started looking and seeing what the ladies in the office were wearing. They would were just a regular bra with a cami or just a well fitted bra with a blouse or sweater. I did the same. 

I discovered women already have all of this figured out. Sports bras, t shirt bras, unlined bras, leisure / sleep bras, underwire or soft cup. There are so many different bras for different occasions. All tolled, I have about 20 bras. It May sound like a lot but the truth is that I really need a couple more. I have 5 sports bras in different colors, 5 leisure/sleep bras, 1 strapless, 2 minimizer bras so I can button a couple of blouses, 5 everyday underwire bras, and a couple for special occasions.

The Matilda pictured is an everyday, full coverage bra. I also have her in black and another in sand.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I didn’t really know what I was getting. I thought the sports bra was soft cloth and wireless and would be just comfortable for lounging around the house. It really wasn’t. This new underwire bra is extremely comfortable though. I’m wearing it now after having scar pain and soreness today. It’s ok if it makes them look huge. Just wearing it around home.

They do make encapsulated sports bras with underwires, and the pull over sports bras, and a few in between. I am with Sophie, in choosing underwires all but exclusively.

I love Elomi's Energize sports bras. It's really the only sports bra I wear. There are others that I have liked over the years, however Elomi's Energize did change my life.

I have a few of them including one identical to this one pictured above. I have never had so much control over my chest since puberty! I can go for a 5 mile run and still have a comfortable chest when Im done. It is an underwire encapsulated  sports bra.

I know that many here probably do not go shirtless in public but, when bra wearing for men becomes more main stream, Sports bras with cute patterns are a great option to stay cool in the summer ☀️.

Thanks everyone. I’ve been wearing a bra at home for over 2 weeks now. I like the support and prefer the underwires. I don’t plan on buying any more right now. I will probably never wear the sports bra.
I’m trying to find an old photo that shows what I looked like before surgery. I’ll post if I find it.
I’ve had a lot of sensations I normally don’t have such as my nipples feeling very heavy at times. Haven’t noticed any changes in size in past few weeks.
That’s about all the updates. I’ve been reading a lot of posts on the forum. I appreciate all the advice I’ve received.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: Dudewithboobs on April 14, 2022, 10:51:54 AM
Nipple heaviness is interesting. Is this sensation when wearing a bra? Curious if it’s related to breast being lifted and sitting in a bra so weight while supported is lifted and gravity trying to do its thing but unable.

Breast growth has been described many ways.  I feel everyone will have their own description of the growing of tissue.
Itching, aching, heavy feeling, the nipple may feel like at time to have a string being pulled through it.  I have woken up scratching like a mad person. 
  Watch for any visual signs of something wrong.  Then evaluate in a month.  Take note of further discomfort, note ways and things that helped.  visual signs of enlargement?  I could be just that. 

  Again I'm only one here but have found many of the afore mentioned symptoms  come and go. 

Hope this helps.

Best and cheers mate

It will take time to learn the in’s n outs of the world of bras, but you’ll eventually figure it out. I would experiment with different sizes and try it out for few hours. Also try using extender’s, with extender’s you have a lot more a choices of how tight you want the band. Also it might be surprise, but try playing with the cup size as well. For the longest time I thought I was a b cup, but I ordered a c by accident. It turned out to be way more comfortable. Larger cups has wider wires, so it spreads across my chest and the sides is right by my arm pit. Which is from what I’ve researched, that’s how the bra should be sitting. 

As for going out in public, it’s not easy. Just continue doing what you’re doing. As time goes on, you’re gonna notice when your in public, you’ll gonna to notice the uncomfortableness and start considering wearing outside. You’ll be surprised that nobody notices a lightly padded t- shirt bra under a single layer shirt.

Thanks guys. I appreciate your posts. Last night I actually went out wearing a bra. I only went to the laundromat and it was covered by a tshirt and denim jacket so no one could see. I just didn’t want to take it off to go out.
I’m ready for the growth to stop. Still having lots of sensations. I’m glad I tried on a bra though. I like how it feels. I finally stretched out the sports bra I didn’t like and it’s not as bad. That’s about all the updates. I may try different cup sizes later but I’m not buying any more right now.

I'm glad to hear you went out wearing.  Confidence comes in small steps and at various stages.  I think most would agree the greater the need for, and the more worn, a greater level of confidence is achieved.  Go at your pace.  If the growth continues and a greater need for wearing for comfort is noticed, I feel self confidence will be gained also.  For me it was, I'm doing this for me and if others don't understand, that's their problem.

And that is said to be one of the main reasons women wear the wrong size bra. They get hung up on the letter and not the fit, support and comfort. If I had a choice, I would have not chosen to have breasts. I have them, 38DD/DDD in size, so how do I deal with them? I can't hide them anymore than a woman can. So I deal with them the same way women do to be as comfortable as I can with two projections hanging off my chest. That means garments that are considered traditionally as women's. It works for them, why should I deny myself the comfort and confidence a bra can bring me? Because it's for girls only?

John, You are correct, again!

Women do not have an exclusive license to purchase or wear a bra! I wore a bra every day for 30 years before I transitioned to womanhood. I was fitted, purchased and wore a bra because it helped me.

I did start wearing a bra at a relatively young age for a boy. I was 12. I have gone through several growth spurts along the way. I knew when it was time to go bra shopping. Sometimes however, I found that I wasn't mentally prepared for the cup size I wore walking into the boutique verses the cup size I wore walking out. There's a boutique in particular that I have shopped at for years called Zoe and Company. I had a fitter tell me years ago " it's not the size that's important, it's all about the fit". I totally get it now. 

Your sis,
Sophie

I’m glad I know my bra size. It was actually a shock to me to be 34B. Initially I wasn’t even sure I would fill an A cup because the measurements can be interpreted differently with different brands and sizing charts.
I don’t care about size either just glad I found one that fits so well.
I ended up shaving my chest after a suggestion on here. I like the change. I’ll try to attach pics.

Looking good, benusa.

Shaving gives a totally different look. I'm not allowed to ;) but sometimes I get rid of the tuft of hair that sticks up over the gore of the bra.

The breasts in the bra look nice. It can be seen that the bra holds your breasts together and gives them support :)

I also shave my breasts, but naturally I have very little hair, so shaving takes me very little time. Shaved breasts look aesthetically beautiful to me.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: SideSet on April 21, 2022, 08:13:23 AM
I agree. Your breasts look very attractive.  Much more womanly without the hair.  Your breast’s B cup size and larger feminine areolae are now so obvious. 

You look great in that bra. You clearly completely fill the cups of your bra. And your bra gives you such nice shaping. 

If you have breasts like a woman, which you do, then you should wear a bra like a woman, which you are now doing.  And I believe a bra looks and feels best on a smooth hairless chest, like a woman’s, and like you now have.  

Congratulations on taking this next step in embracing your breasts.  I bet your GF will be impressed at how even more feminine your breasts now look. Are you going to give her a heads up or let it be a playtime surprise?

Hey Ben!

It's only my opinion but, I think that your chest is 100% more attractive! I've never had more that literally 3 chest hairs so I have nothing to compare it to so I'll ask the question. Do you prefer a shaved chest to a hairy one for yourself? Does it feel different or better with a bra? I was just curious.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: benusa on April 21, 2022, 09:16:19 AM
Thanks guys. I do like the shaved look and feel. I may keep them shaved. Normally I would use a trimmer once every few months. They do look much more feminine shaved but I agree they look and feel better. Even the bra feels better to the skin.
My girlfriend isn’t surprised when I’ve used trimmer on my chest and stomach. I won’t say anything. I’ll let you know if she likes it ;).
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: Johndoe1 on April 21, 2022, 09:29:46 AM
I don't shave my chest but have way less hair than I used to. That's actually true of my whole body. My legs used to be pretty hairy but now they are as smooth as can be. I suspect the elevated estrogen has something to do with it.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: bustymale on April 21, 2022, 09:30:34 AM
First of all, you look great, all smooth, both bare breasted and in a bra.  

Several years ago, I was where you are now. With noticeable female breasts continuing to grow. Also, with a quite hairy chest. I knew I was busty, and I knew I felt and look better in a bra, but until I removed all my hair, I had no idea how feminine my breasts were. And I found I looked so much better in a bra without that hair.

It was a revelation, but also a bit shocking, as I’m sure you experienced, also.  But I very quickly came to enjoy how I looked and felt with my breasts hairless and I quickly realized that it looks silly to have hairy breasts filling out the cups of my bra, and that smooth feminine breasts, like yours and mine, and all the women, look most appropriate in a bra. 

Admitting you have breasts like a woman, starting to wear a bra like a woman are both big emotional steps, and I understood that. I didn’t realize that making my breasts smooth and hairless like a woman’s, was also such a big step.

What I found was after I took each step, there was no looking back. I believe, like me, you will come to embrace more and more having female breasts and feminine nipples and wearing a bra, and, yes, even enjoying them, just like a woman. 

Welcome to the next step of your journey. 
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: benusa on April 22, 2022, 04:24:16 PM
Hi JohnDoe1, I suspect it does have a lot to do with it. Hopefully you prefer less hair.

Hi Bustymale, that has been my experience exactly. I had surgery years ago to remove very female breasts. I didn’t have hair when they developed or through my teen years. I started taking testosterone prior to surgery. Growing breasts again has reminded me of what that was like. I was still taken aback to see them so feminine looking after I shaved. I’m actually quite masculine in personality and not trying to appear feminine but I agree I like how they look and feel.
My nipples are quite flat and my breasts are misshapen a bit from surgery but they’re looking rounder. I’m starting to enjoy the growth but ultimately don’t want huge boobs again. Not wanting to go the surgery route again, I’ve sort of given in to having them.

Post by: Dudewithboobs on April 30, 2022, 10:03:09 PM
I think for many of use, myself certainly, the fact of growing breasts is surreal and a bit of a shock. I mean, hormone levels fluctuating is one thing, and of course common. But enough to grow breasts? I mean, trans women often are on hormones for a year+ before they see breasts really taking off to my understanding from a few friends who are. And here some of us are minding our business, no sign or tell tale of anything happening and one day hmmm why's this shirt feel tighter or walking by a window or mirror and noticing the projection. Or the soreness and wondering if it's from a workout or pulled muscle and days or week later going ok what is going on LOL. But then eventually you realize having boobs is actually kinda nice lol
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: benusa on April 30, 2022, 11:49:04 PM
Yea that was kind of what it was like. Never thought I could go through this again. I have started to see them positively this time. Both underwire bras started to feel tighter today. I’m excited about them getting a little fuller but also worried about having too much growth. I do want to try different types of bras eventually. I’ll post a bra review when I do lol.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: Dudewithboobs on May 01, 2022, 12:54:33 AM
Yeah the bra tightness of filling the cups more is a mind warp of sorts for me. I’ve tried to turn it in to a laughing or positive recognition of it and call it graduation lol i always was a c student and appears I’m gonna be a C cup also soon. It’s nice when they get fuller cause the shape becomes nicer instead of coned or poking out etc but the anxiety is still there of how much more will happen
Title: Re: My First Bra

Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: benusa on May 04, 2022, 08:44:51 AM
Wearing 34B. I think it’s just right. I’m sure bras fit differently though. I’ve discovered that a B cup in one band size isn’t the same as a B cup in another. If my current bra gets uncomfortable I will look at other sizes. I think it’s just hard to look and tell.
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: bustymale on May 04, 2022, 10:21:02 AM
Most women wear the wrong size bra. Only way to be sure is to get a fitting and try bras on in the store. Different brands and styles will end up fitting you in different cup and band sizes.  

The fullness, wide root, and side boob of your breasts would be consistent with more than a B cup, especially in a nice underwire that gathers up everything, puts it in your bra cup, points forward not out, nicely shaped and lifted. I would not be surprised at a D cup with the right bra. You would be amazed. 
Title: Re: My First Bra
Post by: SideSet on May 04, 2022, 03:40:31 PM
I agree you might wish to try a D cup. A lot of women say they aren’t a certain bra size, but they are.  So I know it might be hard for you to wrap your head around being a D cup. But you should try on a D cup and you might be surprised at how comfortable it feels, how good you look at it, and how completely you fill the cups, especially after you have done the scoop and scoop. 

Also, looks like your breasts may be fairly firm, so most likely mammary gland as well as fatty tissue. 

You have full female breasts like a woman and you need those womanly breasts of yours to be in a bra, like a woman.

I will be devils advocate in the sense of only way to know for sure is to get a professional bra fitting. I disagree entirely.  While sure it’s helps, and removes your time needed to figure it out yourself, it is being measured for a bra not a suit. If you got some time to kill you can measure yourself just as well as a boutique can. YouTube, articles, etc. it isn’t hard to find resources of professionals telling you how and how to for your shape, etc. along with simply going to a store grabbing a few brands bands and styles and hitting the fitting room. I don’t know s*** about plumbing. Know what I did cause of YouTube? Installed new pipes and vanity and ripped out a shower and remodeled the bathroom. I didn’t even have tools or know what to use but it had to be done so I figured it out. People can figure anything out. They just don’t want to or don’t care to or have the time and money to let someone else do it for them or just find pleasure letting someone else do it.
If a B cup works for you and is comfortable and you aren’t spilling out keep with the size you are. If it keeps you in place and doesn’t warrant anything that says otherwise in fit stay with the size you are. Until you are the size you arent.

i totaly agree I did my bathroom and kitchen 3 times and learned to do it same thing with all the bras I have bought. my wife got me my first. when I got bigger Itried one oif hers. fit good so thats what I kept buying. when I got to a bigger band got some online just like the other ones. just measured and used the charts.

The German forum "Busenfreundinnen" (Bosom Buddies) uses a special term for this. They call it "breast migration". It really works. As a male my nipples were not centered but became more centered with bra wearing. After a while the result is permanent. The same with the breast tissue. It is more rounded and dome-shaped now.

There have been a few days I’ve thought they are getting too big. I’ve wanted to get back on an estrogen blocker. I’m starting to like them fuller and more round though. I can tell a difference over the past 6 weeks. I wonder if they’ll take on more of the shape they had before surgery.

Ben, I am soooooooo happy that you are enjoying your natural body shape 🤗❤️🤗❤️🤗

Like others here, including myself, have realized that our breasts are just that, OUR BREASTS. As long as ther is no medical reason to have them removed,  surgery will incur pain, suffering, recovery and cost that is unnecessary.

Wearing a bra is definitely not the worst thing that can happen to us. I've worn a bra every day for the last 30+ years. Of course, as a woman, I'm expected to wear a bra. Even before I transitioned, I wore a bra because I wanted to keep and have my breasts. I hope that your peace and acceptance of your breasts continue and you embrace and love your body as your journey continues.

your sister,
Sophie ❤️

Last weekend I went on a trip and shared a dorm with 3 roommates for a couple nights. The lights were off and two of them came in. I guess they didn’t realize they woke me up because I heard them whispering. One guy said “that guy needs to wear a bra. Look how his boobs touch when he’s laying on his side”. They were snickering. I left early before they got up and thankfully I won’t see them again. I was a little embarrassed. I should have worn a shirt since I was staying with other folks. I suspect they would also have something to say about men wearing bras. I also had an experience at the airport. I was sitting down and a group of older guys were standing around. They kept looking up from their phones and staring at me and grinning. They kept smirking at each other. I never figured out why but it was weird and definitely directed at me. Now I’m really getting self conscious.

It's pretty obvious that the guys in both situations were just ignorant and were acting like dickheads.

It's easy to offer what might appear to be glib advice from behind a keyboard without experiencing the pressure of the situations that you found yourself in, but is it in your nature to fight back? I don't mean physically fight, but in the case of your experience at the airport, maybe take a pic of THEM and if they question you, tell them that you will post it at ignoramus.com (I just made that up ;) ). They're not going to punch you up in front of hundreds of other people.

I'm certainly not advising you to become aggressive or to get in peoples faces, and I can imagine that as time goes on you will care less and less about what people think anyway, but in the meantime you need to remind yourself that YOU are more in tune with what you are going through than they are. If they snicker or smirk, that's their problem.

Stay strong, Ben. :)

Thanks guys. I don’t let things like that get to me much. I wasn’t worried because I won’t see any of them again. It did catch me off guard both times. I actually brought a sports bra to discretely wear during the trip but didn’t have it on at the airport because I didn’t want to get stopped at the screening. It was also rainy and I didn’t want to get wet with a bra on, and other reasons. I ended up deciding it was best not to wear it while out of town this time. It feels good to come home and put it on and have some support though.

While those of us who 'accept' our gynecomastia have come to terms with the condition, and the varied ways we deal with it, it's well to remember that most people aren't aware of it, and to keep in mind that the biological norm is that women' breasts develop - not men's.  If someone notices and reacts the way you experienced, Ben, it could be that they're jerks.  It could also be that they simply never encountered it before, and their reaction could be from surprise.  And their own nervousness at encountering what they see because it is strange to them.

We can't force others to react to our gynecomastia in ways we would like.  I can't help not liking seeing women with beards.  If someone can't help not being comfortable or liking me with developed breasts, so what?  As others have pointed out, ultimately how we deal with it is our business - and I won't live my life in fearful reaction to others reaction to my breasts.

Post by: Dudewithboobs on June 04, 2022, 07:58:44 AM
Yeah sorry you had to deal with that. People are jerks and ignorant and sadly men often like to poke fun at others rather than empathize. I’ve learned to try and have fun with it. It’s easy to be self conscious. Especially when laying on your side. Don’t let it get to you. If on a trip by yourself who cares what people you’ll never see again may think. I definitely get the airport issue. Last thing I’d want is pulled aside cause a scanner saw I was wearing a bra and believe I was smuggling something. But I feel they would see the bra and see anatomy filling it and no foreign object and just say get your stuff and scan the next one. In that bra your breasts definitely look fuller. Have you gained any weight that’s promoting that or have things just accelerated.

Picking up on what Moobzie said, yes, putting yourself in the shoes of an ignorant person not faced with that before, how would one expect them to react? I accept that side of the argument.

It still doesn't excuse them though. Referencing the 'Me Too' movement as an example, if a male boss never had a pretty or voluptuous female secretary before, should he be allowed to pass judgement on her based on her physical attributes? Why should it be any different for men judging other men for casually seeing something unusual that takes their attention?

I long for the day when the guy wearing the sunglasses in this pic is considered not to be abnormal!:

I didn’t feel threatened at all. Just scrutinized. Not going to worry about it anymore.
No actually lost a little weight. I know I’m a little chubby and thought it was just extra fat until I got my estrogen level results. I’ve had hormone issues most of my life. Had to discontinue estrogen blocker over a year ago. Still take testosterone but seem to be growing breasts again anyway.

I bet your breasts have become more prominent as you have lost weight

I can’t really tell about the weight loss and prominence. I do think I’m seeing continued growth. The first bra I bought had huge cups and I set it aside. Now I fill it. Still getting sore boobies but less frequently. I’m still wearing bras at home.

If you're taking supplemental testosterone you can expect more breast development - because our bodies try to maintain biochemical balance hormonally.  More T 'tells' the body to produce more E.
Also, if there is any anti-androgen effects occurring from other meds (e.g., spironolactone, prostate treatments, some psychoactive meds), then the body aromatizes (converts) its 'extra T into E - again, exacerbating feminizing effects (esp gyno).
Good idea to check with an endocrinologist.
All the best!
