At what size do you think someone should get a breast reduction?

Yes, I know someone is going to say that it is up to the person, but I am just asking for opinions. I say that anything past a C cup is pretty big.

  • Well I'm a 44DD and I have been thinking of having a reduction

  • Sorry, but I love my DD's and so does my husband. I don't see how me having breast bigger than C's is affecting you. Now, if my breast start making my neck/back hurt then I would consider a breast reduction.

  • I would say if they are big enough to be causing you pain/discomfort or just plain image problems than do it.

  • any size that they feel uncomfortable at. Whether it be physical or emotional.

  • If the woman has really big breasts a D would seem more 'normal' to her. She might go in shock if she goes from E to C, don't you think? Which it depends on her frame, current breast size etc.

  • i saw this thing on t.v... the woman had.. i believe, triple I breast size... O__o
    i could def. understand why she needed/wanted a reduction.

    but to me.. it could also depend on your overall size and whether or not the rest of you could handle it. (lower back pains, snoring cuz your chest is so heavy) say if you had my body type.. anything beyond C would definitely be pretty heavy. but if you were say.. a "thicker" woman (please don't be offended).. a C would probably be nothing

    i wish i were blessed with cups overflowing XD haha.

  • When it starts to hurt the person or when they feel that they are top heavy. I have DD's, they are not that bad, I'm proportioned. . When I had DDD's during pregnancy I was hating them.

  • I don't think that you can really put a size on them. I am a 38 DDD but I think that it is proportional to the rest of my body I am not fat but I am not super tiny. Triple D's on a small body would put a lto of strain on it, so I think it just depends on the the person. I would never get a reduction but if someone has back problems or just feels uncomfortable with their body than that should be big enough to consider a reduction. Now during pregnancy I go up to an I cup and if I had that all of the time then I would probably look into a reduction.

  • I think they should get what ever they feel comfertable with

  • I have DDD and would love a breast reduction. Up until recently though, they never gave me any discomfort, they just made it difficult to find clothes that looked good. But since having kids, my back hurts a lot - especially if I am not wearing a bra. I would love to be a C. As soon as I get some weight off, I'm going to look into it. My best friend was only DD and had one.

    I don't think there's any definite size where people should start considering it. Some tiny women can't handle a C, some larger women look completely fine with DD. I think it just depends on your body type and if they are causing pain.
