If you're rocking a serious rack, then you'll know only too well how much stress those ladies can cause on a daily basis, right?

From wardrobe malfunctions to back pain, these DDs of ours definitely aren't all they're cracked up to be, but try telling that to someone desperately stuffing chicken fillets down their bra.

Having a cleavage that rivals Christina Hendricks is not ALWAYS awful (we can rock Fifties style like pros), but sometimes it is. Sometimes it really, really is.

Case in point:

1. The shopping factor
Girlie retail therapy with your less-endowed pals is a no-go if bra shopping is on the agenda.

“Don't mind me, I'll just be in here with Margo and her measuring tape for the next few hours.”


2. The shirt factor
You either fasten that annoying button and rock your inner Lunch Lady Doris from The Simpsons or you keep it open and attract some very unwanted attention.

3. The work-out factor
You may be swinging an 18 kg bell or hitting 10 km on the crosstrainer, but when your boobs are knocking you out, these achievements are the last thing on your mind.

“Yeah whatever, I have a black eye.”

4. The cringe factor
Yes, you've been living with these curves for years, but every so often your inner pre-teen will emerge leaving you mortified by your assets.

“Oh my God, my dad knows I have BOOBS.”

5. The style factor
That high-necked, 60's-style dress looked just PERFECT on the hanger, but one quick visit to the fitting room reminds you why that style best left to our lady friends with the neat B-cups.

6. The gravity factor
You may be the envy of your smaller pals, but the first time they see you in your pyjamas without a bra, they realise how fortunate they really are.

“Knees meet boobs. Boobs? Knees.”

7. The gross factor
All boobs sweat, but big boobs? Yeah, they REALLY sweat.

“Pass the talc. I'm going in.”

8. The bikini factor
Just because you're a 12 on bottom does NOT mean you're a 12 on top, and yet those designers just won't listen.

9. The sexy factor
There are definitely times when it's fun to flaunt the girls, right?

And then there are other times when your greasy hair, un-made up face and tea-stained sweat pants aren't in keeping with the cleavage you're accidentally displaying.

10. The jewellery factor
Any girl with big boobs knows they have to choose their neck jewellery very, very carefully.

Torc-style? Fine. Long pendant that suspends from your chest like a make-shift cat toy? Not so much.

11. The seat-belt factor
Necessary? Yes. Comfortable? No.

“Time to divide and conquer, lads.”

12. The cross-body bag factor
Same as above.

“Hey, why does your bag look so much shorter on you than it does on me?! Oh…oh, right yeah, sorry.”



October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so we are going to give you the lowdown on how and when you need to check your breasts.

Firstly, it’s important to check your breasts regularly – as in every time you shower.

About once a month you should do a thorough check of your breasts.

Changes to look out for when checking your breasts include:

  • A lump or thickening in the breast or under the armpit
  • Pain in one of the breasts or armpit
  • Puckering or dimpling of the breast skin
  • Pulling in of the nipple
  • Reddness of the breast skin
  • Nipple rash
  • Discharge or bleeding from the nipple
  • Changes in the shape or size of the breasts or nipple
  • A change in the position of the nipple

Cancer.ie notes that 9 out of 10 breast lumps are harmless but if anything is bothering you about your breasts please visit a GP so they can put your mind and ease and do any further investigating that may need to be done. 

Checking regularly for changes in your breasts can catch anything that may be worrying early and is therefore really important in the fight against breast cancer – which is one we all want to win. 



A woman named Jasmine Tridevil from Florida has revealed the plastic surgery she had to have an extra breast.

Yes, an extra breast. As in she now has three breasts.

The bizarre request was turned down by several doctors (no shock there) before one said yes, although she won’t name the doctor who performed the surgery (no shock there).

When asked during an interview why she would want to have three breasts, she answered: “I wanted to make myself unattractive to men. Because I don’t want to date anymore.”

The story has now blown up and Jasmine will be appearing on many shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live she says.

Something tells us this isn’t the last we’ve heard of Jasmine and her third breast.

Well, whatever makes her happy, we guess!

Well hello there!
