One of the things acceptance has done for me is to give me the courage to wear more form fitting tops. Not painted on form fitting but tops that don't look like bags or tents. With the choice of the correct bra, I can wear tops that look flattering without the girls getting all the attention. 10 or 15 years ago I would have never been seen wearing such a top. Now, with the eye on what looks good and the confidence that the right bra provides, I am wearing clothes that flatter my body and doesn't draw attention to my chest. Win! Win!

And it’s probably fun!...I can remember my daughter buying new sneakers. I asked why when she had several pairs already. She said because they looked fun....I couldn’t argue with that!

WPW717, you might find an underwire bra best for sideboob.  Look for a bra with a wider center gore.  Your frame easily suits a DD size breasts :)

WPW717, you might want to look for a bra with side support. I too am wideset and shallow and a side support bra is a must for me or I am running my arms into the sides of my breasts all the time.

To me acceptance is complete when I stop discussing the whole thing. All the ladies I know wear bras but don't post on this topic since for them it is quite normal. The very moment I leave this forum I've totally accepted my gynecomastia and that I wear bras. No need for further discussions.
A bra is just an article of clothing for people with breasts.

And yet, here you are making a comment on a discussion about acceptance.  Sometimes it feels good to spend time with kindred spirits... not so much to find acceptance but to express support to others struggling with the issue.  And, of course, it can be fun to talk about brassieres and share photos.  Comments about brassieres and breasts may seem strange but I trust the conversation serves a purpose for the men who participate.  There are not many places in this world where such conversations happen... we can talk sports just about anywhere...

  I Feel the acceptance and the need to not talk  about is something we all share.  Like wearing clothing in general.  I don't feel I have to discuss my wardrobe every day however it is nice to say man I really like how this shirt fits and feels.  Learning from and teaching others fashion sense is helpful in this situation.  Validation.   Wearing a bra as a male for me is one of those things that I feel I still need the acceptance, support, wisdom, styling etc. from the minority of men as we navigate this in our lives.  Being here has helped with accepting "me" and seeing others as we lift each other up.

  I don't know whether you're playing with us... but... it is an underwire brassiere that ACTUALLY lifts us up...

Hello! I'm a very new member to this group, but I've had to accept my gynecomastia all my adult life. My family doctor said as he examined me when I was 15 years old or so, that I had some of it but expected that I'd grow out of it as I matured. Well, I always thought I had a naturally "soft chest" because I wasn't a particularly athletic young man; and as I got older, hairier, and heavier, I thought of my chest as being "man boobs".

Now that I've lost 30 pounds (basically from my stomach and a little from my chest), I know that I have feminine breasts; and I feel they're as much a part of me as my brown eyes are.

I've tried to find kindred spirits, but all the other groups I've looked at are filled with males who want to cut off their "girls"...that's not the type of energy I want to be around.

Thanks,
JonniDee

Welcome to the group and I believe you have found the right place. Many of us here are attached to our breasts and don't want to lose them, so pull up a chair, relax and feel at home.
Life is too short to worry about being judged by people that we would never take advice from anyway.

Bras aren't for women, they're for breasts.

Thank you, Sophie, for the welcome. I need to be able to express myself without worrying that I'm not "manly". :)
