I love huge breasts but when I read about the problems that go with them it makes me sad. Must be really scary not knowing when they are going to stop growing. The constant change in your body means you have to make adjustments all the time.
Best wishes to you, hope they stop permanently very soon

im game to talk to :)

Has your doctor confirmed this? Unfortunately, if it is Breast Hypertrophy, most doctors will try to wait it out and hope you stop growing, they typically wont perform a reduction until the growth stops. Unless there is a health risk. Have you had any major trouble with them?

There is nothing wrong with large breasts! They are beautiful!

It's a rare condition, often genetic I assume no one in your family has this or you would have been less surprised. I tend not to favor surgery, to insult the tissue always has a potential for disaster...

RealChickrko,

I'm sorry this is happening. Its rough. Since it started later in life, you where a C cup do see a doctor and endrochronologist (sp??) Breast growth normally runs for four years as puberty starts.
It sounds like a second growth spurt caused by nature. Do not blame your self. Not that you are but,,,, well others have cursed themselves, their mom or feel they offended the "breast gods" somehow and are being punished. I've never heard an answer to "why me" other than its not fair.

As for bra's - yea they are expensive. Never go on sale and only seem to come in "granny white" Two friends had theirs stolen by "boy friend" as trophy.

For what its worth - hang in there. Work on any stretch marks with cream. I hope you find a good way to sleep at night.

Please do vent. Do find ways to get out with others and not become a shut in.

Kindly,
G

I wish my bank account would magically grow from the 78 cents I have in my BoA account as of right now, to BILL GATES STATUS....... IT CAN happen

You look great in your photo. I hope things work out for.

do not worry missy there is plenty of support in your corner here on EP from what I have found since joining. I went to the DR in college when my breasts continued to grow non stop semester after semester and was told it may very well be vbh. i definitely recommend seeking a professional opinion first and foremost. if you ever want to chat i am here for you <3

Have you seen an endocrinologist or some other kind of specialist? I'm 36G, so I have a window on what you're going through, though mine didn't appear so suddenly as yours.<br />
<br />
I would echo others' suggestions. Exercises that focus on your core will be of great help.

Hers or mine? Do you know something I don't?

Can you be specific about the kinds of back muscle strengthening exercises you can do to make it a bit easier to carry the weight around? Thanks!

I *definitely* understand your position XD I'm just a bit bigger than you, but, yeah, I definitely know the feeling. I have gigantomastia, so my boobs have been growing since I was around 10, and haven't showed any signs of stopping so far. You get used to it after a while, but I suppose if you're having more of a spurt, then it would be a bit more traumatic XD If you have any problems with the weight, I recommend exercising; your lower back in particular. It doesn't alleviate any of the actual weight of course, but it makes it a bit easier to carry it around. Hope this helps! You can talk to me any time you want ^-^

That's exactly what my fiancee did before she died. She never felt any back pain :)

My heart goes out to you. You are a beautiful young woman and I really hope that you are able to work through the challenges and find the love that lives within you. There are many times and many people that will try to bring you down but you deserve better than to let those things crush your spirit. I wish you great happiness!

honey ill talk to u anytime u want to bout it. just drop me a line anytime u want too and ill talk to u :)

This story is from September and I hope you have gotten some good news from medical advice. If you didn't, search medical advice I recommend you to search medical advice asap so you know there is nothing putting your health in danger. As was told of different posters before the growth may persist for some time. As you can't change your body I encourage you that you accept it how it develops, best would be that you get proud of your body.

You've got that right: can't change your body. But you CAN change your mind. So ladies, decide to love your body, whatever the shape or size. All bodies are lovely in one way or another. There's a beholder for every kind of beauty.

I'd support the previous comments to seek medical advice but you have a long way to go before you run out of bra cup sizes. I'm a 34N, narrow back but very large boobs. I usually wear an Elila Jacquard 34N which gives lots of support and comes in a range of colours. Its easily available on the internet. Quite a few websites provide tools to calculate your size. Hope you find something that fits.

I'd definitely recommend seeing a doctor about this as soon as possible, if you haven't already by now. It's extremely rare, but in some very rare instances sudden breast growth like you described can be a symptom of other things like lymphoma or autoimmune disorders. I don't want to scare you any more than you already are, but you definitely need to confirm that whatever's going on isn't something like that, or if it is, the sooner you can catch it, the better.<br />
<br />
Hopefully what you've experienced isn't an indication of anything like that, isn't indicative of anything like hypertrophy either, and has stopped by now, but, again, it's better to be safe than sorry and make sure that whatever is going on or went on isn't a red flag for something else.

It is the beginning of a long journey for you--you'll always be different

Hi. You have come to one of the right places. There are more. <br />
1st - There are places to find more than "granny" bras that seem bullet resistant. I can not think of them off hand but they have websites. <br />
Only a doctor can say hypertrophy or gigantomastia. It may be a simple hormone imbalance. <br />
<br />
There are other women here who either are where you are or have been there. They have passed K cup range. <br />
<br />
How long will this growth go on? How big can they grow? Lets see what the doctor says. Go with facts, not fear. <br />
<br />
When did the growth start ?<br />
