  • i was a 34d as a junior in high school and by the time i was 24 i had upper back problems. i had plenty of muscle due to doing hard phyical labor growing up on a farm but the job i was doing at 24 was a lot of repetitive work and my chiropractor said almost all large breasted women have upper back problems sooner or later.

  • yes. all kind of posture issues and back pain. Makes it harder to breathe and more uncomfortable to work out.

  • the women in my family all have big boobs ...( the smallest is my aunt with a D cup) .... we ALL have horrible back problems...one of my aunts even had back surgery to help fix it and ended up dying ( from complications from the surgery) ..... I mean I am not sure what other problems it causes, but back problems is really serious and really painful !

  • Back, shoulder and neck pain. Posture is a big problem. I've got DD's and I've always had back pain!

  • I don't want to sound "shallow" but it could give you stress to look for clothes that fit properly. Try find a work shirt that fits your upper body.

  • Yes. I have back issues because of it! I have DDD and it affects my posture, it makes it harder for me to run, and my back constantly aches.

    I am in the process of losing weight, only about 10 pounds to go, then I plan on getting a breast reduction.

  • I'm sure it does, I was itty bitty barly B cup before this baby and right now breast feeding I'm a C cup almost D. my back and neck hurt all the time, at first I thought it was a the baby. but I noticed holding the baby makes my back hurt in different areas. I think boobs play a huge part in back problems.

    still hasn't changed my mind about getting a boob job when I'm done having kids though.

  • Breast cancer is not caused by large breasts, but having larger breasts can make it more difficult to locate and diagnose tumors.
