Is me Metisonn (10 days ago)
I‘m fifteen and I absolutely love my right boob but my left boob is a lil different...it starts higher but it sags so I guess it’s even...my areola is bigger and a different shape....It’s softer and it has less tissue on the too...it’s also a bit smaller...all that started because i had to get a mole and a bit of boob tissue removed

Hi, I'm Max, and I just recently turned 18, I've had huge boobs snes I was 11. I was a B in elementary, a DD in middle school, and now that I'm in my last year of high school...I'm a...J. I'm not overweight, it's just my genes. I get bullied alot. My nickname is implants, and my boobs are SO saggy. It's makes me very self-conscious, and plus their HUGE, so I'm even more self conscious. 😖 It's very depressing.

please help, I am 14 and going through a saggy boob crisis. It sounds ridiculous but my boobs are almost a size H and only a few inches away from my belly button. I still have 3 months until my appointment with surgeons to put me on the waiting list for a breast reduction, and the surgery might not even happen until i'm 15 or 16. I'm in pain every day because of my developing scoliosis and from the weight of my boobs crushing my ribs. if anyone has any info or coping mechanisms please let me know. p.s, sorry for whinging..

Breasts get more beautiful with age.  I hate it when a woman raises their arms to pretend they aren't sagging. I'd rather watch them tie their shoes.

I developed breast pretty early, and they grew pretty fast. By like 4th grade I had to start wearing training bras. By 6th grade I was a C cup, and by 8th grade I had close to DD's. (But I started school late, so I was about a year or so older than most of my classmates) I'm still about DD's so I haven't grown too much, but my breasts have been kind of saggy since the grew so fast for one reason. And who has big boobs, and are very perky that aren't implants? But still I'm pretty insecure about them, because of the sag, and also the stretch marks from growing so fast.
OmenaOmega (2 years ago)
well, i'm lucky enough to have a pair of perky A-cups, they're more holding the bra than the bra is holding them. Hope they're not sagging anytime soon. If i'm like my mother they'll eventually melt until completely flat, don't know if that's a better option though.

I guess I don't get the whole thing about sagging breasts being an issue.  It's part of nature that it happens.  Breasts that sag are as beautiful as ones that don't.

When you go to the bra store, it's supposed to make you feel pretty. That's what my mom says. I go for the first time, a month away from thirteen, and I'm a DD. My mom doesn't know how weird it feels, because she has a normal chest. I had precocious puberty. So now in seventh grade im a DD. And everyone assumes I'm hyper sexual and I want them to touch my boobs. Nope. No thank you. No, random guy who comments on my boobs. I don't even swing that way.

Shannon Jordan (2 years ago)
But what I've seen happen is that people are thinking that the way normal boobs chill out on your chest look as though they are saggy. I guess this is because of all the fake breasts people see, they think normal ones look saggy even though they definitely are not. Boobs are very much not anti-gravity people!!! -cries-
shelbea stark (2 years ago)
I have, after 50, perky breasts--they pass the pencil under the breast test. Oh, but at a price. I have extremely dense breast tissue. Standard mammograms don't like these girls bosoms. So many scares, biopsies, and other really uncomfortable procedures.
Craig Mullins (2 years ago)
What's considered sagging? Pictures please
BubbaSmurft (2 years ago)
Karen Carpenter's daughter. What can we do aboot Moobs?
Never, ever wear a bra (bad for lymphatic flow), and do muscle strength exercises to support the muscles around the breast area. (Push ups are great!) :)
Cheesus (2 years ago)
The best way to have perky breasts is to be genetically blessed with tiny boobs, maybe it's because I'm asexual but goddamn when you're not worried about impressing a man/woman you appreciate the simplicity of tiny tits. To bra or not to bra? Not a question I have to worry about unless it's cold out.😂

Men have a similar problem, sagging moobs. The best way to prevent this is to get a job on an orbiting space station where you become weightless. But then something else happens... your moobs start orbiting each other.

digitalodin (2 years ago)
Another great video!
There is one thing that rubs me the wrong way about the good ol' "to bra or not to bra" discussion. How there is the inherent assumption that women are absolutely obliged to care about sagging. And how men often use this assumption to tease women and tell them not to wear bras, so they can avoid the sag... and feed the male gaze with some bouncy boobage on the way. In certain ways.. it feels like having sagged breasts is almost a sign of personal failure - like, you either failed because you wore a bra, or failed because you didn't (damned if you do, damned if yo don't). For me... all I care for is boob sweat. It's real. And bras/bralettes are an awesome remedy for it.
obbzerver (8 months ago)
*"..How there is the inherent assumption that women are absolutely obliged to care about sagging.."* The same reason you aren't satisfied with the natural state of your skin and wear makeup - which I see you're obsessed with. And you probably color your hair.
Aqualove (2 years ago)
Bras may not increase sagging by they do lead to circulation and lymphatic drainage issues which could lead to many health problems. Of course this goes for any clothes that are tight.

Anneke Oosterink (2 years ago)
Yeah, boobs sag. Period. I feel like breast havers are being blamed for something that's common and practically unavoidable. But hey, isn't that always the case? No sagging? Implants! (with all the stupid sterotypes that come with that) Sagging? You're an old/fatso/lazy/whatever else person. sigh Also as a person with big boobs (cup c as a 13 yo) my boobs started to sag when I was 15. Sheer weight will do that. Bra wearing will (so they say) pertrify those ligaments holding the boobs up, but not wearing a bra for me while walking (let alone doing anything else) is way too painful. I either hold up my boobs with my arm (walking to the shower) or with a bra. My shoulder muscles (and fysiotherapist) are grateful.
Olga (2 years ago)
Dear Cristin, since we're already talking about boobs I wondered if you could do a video about breastfeeding. There's been (and still is) a lot of controversy about moms feeding in public and I wonder when this controversy started. To me it seems like a completely natural thing and although I know society has sexualized breasts (and breast do have sexual purpose too i think) it feels weird to me to perceive breastfeeding as sexual since there is, commonly, a baby involved... O.O Love, Olga

I hate bras. I only wear bras without under wires because the ones with are evil and uncomfortable. But when I go out I do wear one. That being said, I don't have large boobs so I can get away with it (38 b/c). I've had 3 kids, breastfeed all 3 and my boobs aren't that bad. I've noticed too that the larger the nipple often the less perky boobs are.

+Monique I think the more fruits and veggies you eat the better. I am vegan for more than a year now and the difference is obvious! A little exercise helps too. Keep your blood circulation and lymphatic system pumping. Going on a vegan diet will help a lot with body issues females tend to have hihihi

what I hated most about when that study came out is how much men mad jokes about it. it made me super uncomfortable to read Facebook comments for a while because guys would just pretend to care about your health when in reality they just made implications that every women's breasts should juggle for their own titillation. this struck a nerve with me because I have big breasts but I'm not very sexual and I don't like wearing low cut tops yet all I can remember from my youth is people telling me what to wear and "flaunt what I got". anything that suggests I should dis something for romantic male attention makes my skin crawl especially breast mandates.

when I was in as young as grade 6 I remember a boy telling me the only thing I ever had going for me was my boobs. Long ways from there, I can say that my boobs haven't been the only thing going for me, but I believed that back then! just do your thing and fuck what people say.

Same. And when they discuss it and say that you are lucky. Uhmm ex-squeeze me, but it's very much far from luck to have big breasts.

Anyway, thanks a ton for the info! :D Now if the media would start talking medical vs talking fanatical... :/
punk rock Michelle (2 years ago)
I may be blessed because of being a late bloomer but, even after having a child & being the ripe age of 35, I don't really have any sagging. I attribute this to luck, staying active , maintaining a healthy weight & exercising regularly. I mostly do hoop dance but, also some weight training. It seems to have worked this far 😀

I'm unsure why you want to be rude but, I did watch the video & yes, I did forget genes, and just plain luck. I was just sharing my experience. We are all different, there's no need to judge.

Simone (2 years ago)
Cristen, I'm not sure if you've already covered this topic (I started watching your videos and listening to the podcasts only last year) but I think an interesting one would be the difference between boys and girls when it comes to household chores. I read an article a while back (it was in portuguese so there's no use linking it here) about how girls have to do way more chores than boys do at home and yes, I lived that my whole life, being the youngest of two brothers, doing much more than they did and still being called "lazy". Very very frustating and I'm sure happens worldwide. Thank you for all the content you and Caroline provide, you guys are amazing!
The Absolute Madman (2 years ago)
Men are expected to absorb violence on your behalf if need be. Have you considered that? If there is a war or outbreak of violence in your community they are expected to eat the bullets for you while you stay home safe. Sometimes that means risking death. Men are the disposable sex and always have been. Sweeping the floors doesn't sound so bad now, does it?
Haley McDaniel (2 years ago)
+Simone This is interesting to me. I never really thought about it, but I'd say in my family, we'd often simply get different chores. I know my brothers have mowed a lot more lawns, while I've done a lot more dishes. I'd be interested to see if this was indeed statistically true, and how prevalent it is worldwide.
calsta619 (2 years ago)
"Lazy" in their term might not be referring to the amount of household chores you are doing but rather 'normal' physical exertion such as sporting teams. Moreover if the was a significant difference in amount of chores done by females than males in youth it would like,y stem from the 'women belong in the kitchen' stigma from yesteryear. Thus women doing more chores in their youth 'prepared' them for adulthood where they were expected to do exactly that for their family. Hope I have helped fulfil your curiosities desire and quenched your thirst for knowledge.
