It depends on the guy on whether it can go for or against the girl. I had a friend that we use to call Chestnut and I don't know how many people tried to guess how he got his name until we finally told them we call him Chestnut because it's easier and nicer to say than Tit Manic.

I find that breasts can attract a lot of negative attention. Personally, I was a 36 B at 12 years old as well as tall and looked a bit older than I was. Men much older than I was seemed to feel permission to address me in ways that were completely inappropriate. By the time I was in high school, I was a 36 DD (DDD by graduation) and again, men and boys felt it was appropriate to comment on their size, shape (what they could see through my clothes since I'd developed the need to cover up), etc. Now, I'm a 40 L, in my mid 30s, and still dealing with comments from random men who think it's appropriate to lead with how nice my "tits" are such. That's besides the staring, occasional grope, etc. There's been plenty of attention I did not want. I am desperate for a breast reduction for that reason (and the back pain and inability to lie on my stomach aren't great, either)

On the other hand, showing a little cleavage can get you discounts and many other things if you want. Even though I've never been skinny and dress pretty modestly (though there's a limit to modesty when you're carrying around 15 pounds of boob on the front of your body), I've barely had to pay for my own drinks anywhere I go. Granted, many of those who paid for my drinks were female objectifying pricks (see above).

I think thin women with large breasts are treated differently. I have had the reduction surgery. The Dr. took 5lbs off my chest. I now call them my small boobies. My b/f says they are not small. But when going from a DDD to a C they are definitely small to me. I am not a thin woman so the big boobies didn't do much for me. Now my daughter on the other hand is thin with big ones and makes big tips bartending. It also doesn't hurt that is she is very pretty.

Initial Goals:
1. Get back into my previous weight loss jeans.

2. Meet my fiber requirements 5 days a week.

Now that I am finally exercising for the first time in 23 years I have decided to set these weekly exercise goals.

1. Walk or go to the gym 3 - 4 days a week.
2. Strength training 2 - 3 times a week

Only by guys who like big breasts. I prefer small and perky with large nipples.

Yes, I think that women who have big boobies get more attention.

I don't think breast size is actually at the crux of the matter. I think when you feel attractive, you behave like a hot girl. And when you behave like a hot girl, you get treated like one.

My breast size is a little bit over-generous for a girl of my size (36C or thereabouts, on a small statured body), but nothing extreme. Still, I've had traffic tickets written off, had drinks sent to me in bars and restaurants, had one very persistent man propose to me and bring me flowers every day at dinner for the 2 weeks that my family stayed at a vacation resort, have doors held open, and other stuff like that.

I think it's more to do with the confident way I carry myself, AND the fact that I try to be kind and gracious to people. The short skirts and high heels probably don't hurt, but I don't tend to display a lot of cleavage, especially at work.

I have 34d and they developed in junior high. I would say I got treated a bit differently at times but most of it I didn't notice until later.
As an adult, I do not see any difference, but I also am shy and do not really know how to use them to my advantage. They are the portion I try to give the most attention in regards to clothing cuts and styles. But I have never been hit on or ever bought a drink at a bar (I have also never gotten anything for free).
I do know other women who have a lot bigger breasts than me and have always been treated differently. A few have gotten reductions but are still considered huge.

Yes, and I think attractive women in general get treated differently, sometimes in positive ways and other times in not so positive ways. Although weight loss means that I'm not quite as ample-breasted as I once was, I've still got a decent rack and am more comfortable with the attention they attract.

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since. Had a baby at the end of April 2016 and am working to get back to my pre baby form, or at least as close to it as I realistically can!

In junior high - grade 7 to be exact - i suddenly had boobs. And not just any boobs - large ones that seemed to have grown over summer vacation. I was teased mercilessly. I hated it so much that I swore that once I was old enough, I would have breast reduction surgery. One of my male class mates told me to get used to it, I would be getting attention all my life because of my boobs.

Well,I guess I likley used them to my advantage from time to time and likley got treated differently too. The big difference I see is that people never look you in the eye.

Since starting my journey on Spark I have gone from a 38DD to a 36D and am so very thankful that I can easily shop for a bra now. The girls look not too bad for a 50+ grandma and yes, I still get treated differently from time to time and use them to my advantage if I can.


Yes you can!

sis ended up having reduction surgery, and yes...she was treated very different before & after

This is a variation on my topic of similar nature in the Spark cafe' about people adjusting attitudes for healthy looking folks.

When I say large breasted I don't mean just big boobs on anyone, I mean women who are well endowed, attractive and maybe use that to their advantage.

My gf is a full "D" cup and even though she's somewhat shy and quiet she absolutely knows she can sometimes use her breasts to her advantage when she needs to.

I say if you got 'em and some guy is stupid enough to step on his own tongue to go out of his way to help you well then, go for it.

Do you find this to be true or somewhat true? What is your experience?
