Many hetero dudes think large breasts are swell. Some smaller-breasted women would like to have larger breasts. But take it from women who actually have large breasts: it's no picnic. Some busty women recently got on Reddit and set the story straight about the unexpected complications of having large breasts. (Oh, and almost every woman said "back pain," but we edited those out so as not to be repetitive and depressing.)

1. User books-and-tea has boobs that sabotage her beverages.

You can't lean over the table without knocking something over. I don't know how many lovely drinks have been ruined because of my boobs. Also leaning towards your laptop while sitting down or laying on the bed with your laptop can sometimes cause your boobs to click the trackpad and cause fuckery.

2. And apricot_crumble would like you to know that you can't even read properly with big boobs.

When I am reading, sitting at that weird half sitting half lying down angle, my boobs cover the lower inch or so of the book. I have to push them in and out of the way as I get to the bottom of each page. Yes am aware could sit differently slash prop the book on a cushion but I don't do things that way

3. Golf: an annoying game made even more annoying by boobs, according to npcvillager.

Golfing. My tits get in the way when I try to swing.

4. Or you could have a situation like eatcauliflower, where your boobs get beat up all day, every day.

Work a physical labor job where I'm lifting ~50lb items daily, constantly, off pallets and onto other things. I hit my tits constantly. They bruise. It's awful. It sounds like something that should be easy to avoid but they're just this large obtrusion between my arms when I need to move moving shit.

5. If it's below the chest fluffykins27 isn't gonna see it.

I'll walk around all day with a stain or something on my side or stomach and won't notice it until I pass a mirror because I can't see underneath my boobs.

6. Just2clarafy coined a funny word to describe a very unpleasant thing.

Booblash. Like when you're on the bus and you hit a bump and your boobs go flying and then they remember that gravity is a thing and whip back down hard enough to feel like they're rip off your chest.

And then the awkward stares when you clutch your boobs and try to hold them in place...

7. Safety first, shecooedeffectively.

Seat belts either choke you, or go in your armpit.

8. Those dumb chair-with-tiny-table combos in college are even more useless for people like xaviira.

Those little chair-desks you get in college classes are basically just boob rests, they're completely pointless for me.

9. If yresimdemus is reading this right now at work, she's not enjoying it.

Trying to type on the computer poses a challenge. First, because I can't get the right distance from the keyboard. Secondly because my boobs get in the way of my arms, and they end up getting chafed if I'm typing too long (not to mention my arms having to be at an awkward angle so they cramp up).

10. User beatenandblindfolded gets to choose exactly how she'd like her shirts to not fit.

I hate how I sometimes have to buy a shirt in a bigger size for it to fit better on my boobs but then it drapes over my stomach and makes me either look pregnant or like a boat. :(

11. V is not for victory for PM-ME-YOUR-REPLIES.

V-necks or scoop shirts are "cute" and "innocent" on one girl, but make me look like a rejected Hooters waitress. The tight-shirt version is a Dominatrix. In the summer, you have to choose between looking like a whore, or being uncomfortably warm all day.

12. OvaryQuiver would love to know if and where you can buy a good bra.

I've never experienced the sore back thing, so I guess I'm the odd one out there but not being able to buy a decent bra for cheap at Walmart sucks. 50+ bucks every time so I wear them until they literally fall apart.

13. Youdirtydirtywhore did find a bra that fit, but that brings with it a whole host of problems.

I dont know if anyone has said this yet, but when you have big boobs, the weight pulls your bra down and the straps leave indents in your shoulders which become permanent. Sucks!!!!

14. Apparently some ladies, like theballinist, don't think localized heat rash is sexy.

I get heat rash underneath my boobs in summer, it's not very sexy.

15. GrandZebraCrew provides one of the Internet's few non-sexy stories about friction.

Developing skin tags due to friction. In addition to everything else that's already been mentioned.

16. Damn, not even sleeping is safe for women like notastepfordwife.

I can't sleep on my back because I can't breathe. So I sleep on my stomach, and I'm up so high my back hurts.

17. Lexjude doesn't take anything for granted. Such as breathing.

It's harder to breathe with boobs. Sometimes I will lift them off of my chest and take an unhindered breath and it's nice :p

18. User theloneabalone tries to put the stern in "sternum" but can't.

That most people don't realize? All right, try this: cross your arms. Go on, no one's looking. Just pretend you're a stern matron at a finishing school and you're about to deliver a serious scolding.

If you're not a busty woman, congratulations, you did it! You deliver that scolding, ma'am.

If you're a busty woman - where the Christ do the arms go? Over the breasts, pushing everything down? Under the breasts like a small floating shelf? Right across the nips? There's literally no comfortable way to do it.

19. And perhaps the worst thing about having large boobs, as experienced by Ellend821, is other people.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this but the really inappropriate comments when you are massively underage (not that they are welcomed now..). I was a 32DD when I was 12 and suddenly I was getting lured at by men all the time, coupled with the fact I was still quite skinny (UK size 8) I had quite a 'nice' figure (that I HATED). I remember running down the street with my dog and group of 4 men pulled over in a car and started yelling stuff at me like 'yeah girl let them bounce!', that's pretty intimidating when you're not even a teenager.
