i know...i know...its really gross but how can i make it better?

my boobs are gigantic now that i am pregnant (expected) but they are constantly squished together. and even if i take a shower and a few hours later, the moistness in between my boobs makes it smell... like... WEIRD.
i cant take a shower every few hours. what can i do to prevent this? its really embarrassing and i feel stupid asking but im desperate.
thank you. and please dont make fun of me.. im anonymous because it is EMBARRASSING!

  • #1 get bras that fit and don't squish them so much, that will help a lot!
    you can also put baby powder where they're getting moist.

  • baby powder/cornstarch is great.You can also buy flushable toilet wipes in the travel packs to thro in your purse so if you are out somewhere you can freshen up whenever.I have learned many tricks as I have had dd breasts since preg 13 yrs ago and now I am preg again and they are out of control lol.

  • I used Gold Bond medicated cornstarch powder and baby wipes. I cleaned the area every time I used the restroom and sprinkled the powder where I felt irritated. It worked really well. I got it on my thighs too, lol. I only gained 20 pounds and I am a 34DD. It happens to so many of us, but maybe a lot of moms don't talk about it.
