Adjusting your idea of "BIG" for everyday use...
« on: September 15, 2010, 10:57:49 AM »
I don't know if it happens to you. I supose most of us will deal with it everyday.

As a boob man, I'm constantly noticing boobs everywhere. When I go out, when I meet someone, in front of the computer, while watching a movie... But for my everyday life, when talking to other people, it's an interesting excercise to remember what normal people (in general) consider "big" or "that's way too big" and what I consider that's "big enough", "perfect" and "maybe a bit too much, but it's ok". Of course I have my limits, even if they're something that many people here would consider "a beginning".

Many times, when a decently busty girl appears on tv wearing a low cut top, or a push-up bra, most people around me comment "wow! those boobs!" and most of the time it's just the way she's dressed and nothing more, but I always find it funny and think "ok, that's what they consider big".

I'll try to explain what happens inside my head with a graphic example:

(I know I left a bunch of very well known models appart, but this is just an example)

Great observation and you nailed in your explanation what probably 98% of the visitors to this site feel in their everyday observation. I chuckle too when the general public deems a celebrity such as Jessica Simpson or Jennifer L. Hewitt massive, topheavy girls. Don't get me wrong, they're attractive, young ladies, but nowhere near what I would call "large". I just say to myself, you have no idea there are Rachel Aldana's and Milena Velbas out in the world that defy logic. Not enchanced, but wonders of mother nature! The only thing I disagree with is your perfect size. I would prefer a cup or two bigger such as this example or like September Carrino. A little large, but not over the top huge. Great post Ooze3d.

This is something that has been mentioned here before in many different forms - but I feel it can be broken down into 3 distinct categories:

Nimrod's three categories of defining 'BIG"

1) "BIG" as defined by the media

2) "BIG" as defined by society

3) "BIG" as defined by personal experience


The most interesting thing about these three categories is that in terms of exposure the media has a very high saturation but a very tight range whereas personal experience has a much lower exposure but a wider range. You will see many more types, sizes and builds of women in your day-to-day life than you will see in the media.

This all comes together to help define what "Big" is to someone.

I have been with a group of friends where one of them has pointed to another and announce how "stacked" she is only to have her friend lean over an mention that they are only a B cup. I have been pals with DD's who thought they were "average".

A long time ago there was a "guess the cup size" on-line game and it was fun to play not only for the images but also to see how close to reality ones perceptions were. If I recall my score was around 90% whereas most people were in the 60-70% range. I do believe that most people simply lack a reliable reference point to judge and simply need to work on how they personally view women and not on outside definitions.

Attached is an image - do you know what size she is?

I am sorry but a 'C' cup is now just average.

I would say a B.  Possibly a small C.

I'd say small C too... probably a large B.

Of course I'm not always in the mood for the same cup.

I know that photo and the woman is supposed to be a D or DD cup if I remember right.  Not sure I believe it though.

Maybe if she's very tall.  ;)  Or in the UK, what with their seemingly skewed sizes.

I think my perception of boobs is right along yours, but I really do look at the rest of the woman to determine if her boobs are perfect or not. Depending on her height and build, more might be necessary to keep some sort of hourglassish shape. So a 5'7" chubby girl might need JJs to look awesome, whereas a petite 5'1" spinner might be eye-popping with "just" F cups.

My wife knows I miss her nursing boobs which I believed reached G-cup size (we never got her properly fitted, and my measuring skills weren't accurate) and she misses the firmness they had, but I think she's somewhat scared of getting that big again - even though she's slowly getting there again naturally. I do fantasize about her getting to an H, J or even L cup Rachel Aldana size, but realistically I don't want her to have to deal with all the negative attention and I don't think she would be happy. Even now when she dresses conservatively she says she catches people gaping at her all the time at her office and she is the bustiest woman there (38F). And if we go out and I convince her to wear a push up with something low cut, she gets sneering looks from some women and gaping stares from many men. I don't mind it, but imagine it would be a lot worse on her if she reached my maximum dream size of K or L. I do like to look at Chelsea and Beshine, but I would not want that level of bosom for my wife and I in the real world.

When I watch TV I know that they are going to put a D cup babe in an extremely padded push up bra and make her out to be unholy huge in size and the punchline of every sight gag and have all the characters tripping over them and that's fine, I'll still look - because usually they are attached to some cheerleader type with perfectly toned legs, abs and wonderfully salon kept hair. But I realize that that is not "big" in my world at all and I wish that role, usually played by a Diora Baird type was given to a Jana Defi or Anya instead.

That's right, I forgot to talk about the build factor. Obviously it's not the same to find a petite and slim woman with DD's than a chubby one with a G. That's also why, unconciously, I didn't talk about cup sizes in my first post/pic. I don't mind the cup size as long as there's a noticeable difference between waist and boobs. Also hourglass figures complete the whole package.

I remember a bus stop ad campaign here where Playtex launched sexy lingerie for D, E and F cups. It was a real pleasure to watch but a little dangerous when you were driving. The curious fact about the three different ads is that the D cup model looked much more busty than the others, simply because they took a shorter and slimmer woman for that one. I miss those ads!

It's not just about cup size either.  A D-cup on a 5'6 200lb woman is nothing but a d-cup on a woman of the same height and 105 pounds is quite another matter. Yes, I realize the D-Cup on the 200-pounder is actually a bigger cup.

It's all about proportion.  bigger women need bigger cup sizes to get my attention.  Regardless, anything smaller and D is "average" in my book.  My wife ~135lbs (currently FF-G cup) has set the standard.  To be sure, I've seen bigger women out there, but most are considerably heavier.  Her best friend down the street is barely a B-Cup. To her, a C is big. 

I guess my definition of big is that it's a cup & band size combination you can't find at Target or Kohl's.  For example, you can find DDD cups at these stores,but in a band size of 38 or bigger.  so a 36DDD is big by the Boobster standard.

Yes, we could go on about the relativistic differences of build to boob and the apparent size versus real size - but the thread's question is a good one as it touches on the aspect of "everyday use" and not some BEA skewed top weighted ideal.

For me it is simple. Living with my wife Kithara has given me a very good perspective on what a "BIG" bust is. It is a combination of the woman's attitude (and altitude), what she has experienced growing up (and growing out), the cut of her dress (and cutting remarks). In all it comes down unfortunately to how others react to you.

Yes, a woman is "BIG" if others say she is.

Again I can bring up my first gal pal I had in school back in the 4th grade. I was very tall for my age and she was very busty. Being physically well outside the bell curve we ended up being each others buddy for mutual social protection. It was totally platonic but it helped us get though the rough years. She was branded a slutty or loose girl by most everyone because she was the one with "Big Tits". She was labeled that all the way through till High School graduation even when many girls had well exceeded her size. By then she was not "BIG" at all, but everyone else still said so.

With Kithara the slow but inexorable natural BE stems from several sources, the overall size is heredity and the slow delay has been from health and medication issues. But the tipping point occurred when she no longer could shop for bras and such in "Normal" stores. The "slap in the face" moment unfortunately happened at a Victoria's Secret store with an exceptionally rude store clerk. It does not help that the larger sizes tend to be on the bottom drawer or rack. When you move out of the common stores and need things custom or special - then you are "BIG"

In other words, If you are still off the rack, then your rack is not off the charts.

For me and based on all my life experience - "BIG" starts around an 'F' cup.

Answer to Size Photo: 32DD, yes that is correct.

Interesting photo, I figured her to be a D cup, but I am surprised she's a DD. Must be a very good t-shit minimizer bra. Would be cool if we could see the same woman dressed and primped by DJPFC and crew.

It's not just about cup size either.  A D-cup on a 5'6 200lb woman is nothing but a d-cup on a woman of the same height and 105 pounds is quite another matter. Yes, I realize the D-Cup on the 200-pounder is actually a bigger cup.

It's all about proportion.  

Absolutely. What looks big or even huge on some may look like average or even small on others. As I have said before, I stand at 5'10" and I currently have a JJ cup. I have recently lost 15lbs (goodbye to some of the baby weight) and am able to fit into a 40 band size, but there hasn't been a reduction in cup size. I'm not a small lady, either. I don't see my chest as huge, but others do. Lately, I have noticed more and more eyes on my chest wherever I go. But I think It's because I am wearing clothes that are smaller and more revealing. Maybe I need to just get the camera out already and show you what I am talking about.

I had a conversation with someone on this topic recently, and I remember saying, if I could still fit into a 38 band, I would have to wear an M cup to compensate. Yeah, wishful thinking  :P

Pac and I have had this chat many times. In the past, the answer was always "well, if the proportions were eye popping then it's big". These days, for me, anything in a H or larger can be called huge. Regardless of the size the person in particular has. Pac may not necessarily agree on all accounts. However, he uses his hands as a measuring tool. If they're falling out of his hands...they must be big. He has really large hands. ;) He may also appreciate looking at proportions that are stunning in smaller cup sizes. But at the end of the day, bigger is always better. But he's been spoiled, so maybe it doesn't count.

There's also the "real world big" and the "screen big". Normally what looks big or huge on screen will probably seem gigantic in real life. You can call it the 3D factor.

A couple of times in my life I've had the opportunity to see a gal that I previously considered quite busty photographed, only to notice that she didn't look that busty at all in the pic. Also I have to say I noticed in all these years that while I'm quite picky in front of a screen, it only takes a small c cup in a short average woman for me to say "woah!" in real life.

Following that experience, I can only imagine what models like Denise Milani or Jordan Carver will look like in real life. Let alone Leanne Crow...
