The Difference Between Men and Women

Me: Hey! I got my new nursing bras in. What do you think? Do I look a little smaller now?

Nate: No, you still look humongous.

Me: That's not what I was going for.

Nate: It's fine by me.

Ha! I fear (as do all women with small boobs) that this is how all men feel! BTW I'm sure they do look smaller.

Yeah, i get the wanting to look (and be) smaller now that I'm nursing. I think I'm wearing a G now, a freakin G. AND, I'll be damned if I can find a bra to support these things well. I'm not sure why my husband's opinion about it is because I have stated that they are off limits anyway. There is just something about feeding my son with them that makes them decidedly unsexual to me now. Plus I threaten to squirt him daily. :)

That's a great looking nursing bra and not at all industrial looking like the ones I used. I'm sure you look smashing.

I bet you look faboo. Men love boobs no matter what. When I was nursing and my normally small boobs got a teeny tiny bigger, my husband was like a little boy at Christmas. lol

Those are some great looking bras. I said to myself, why didnt I get those. Then I looked at the sizes. So if your husband thinks you are huge in the single letter d's, then I must have frightened all men and small children while nursing.

My husband was upset, because all my nursing bras looked like old lady bras. *sigh* Can't win.

I can so relate. Does he ask you to maybe look again to be sure? Like 10 times a day? That would be my husband.

Perhaps they are not smaller but I'll bet they are much more shapely. Most men don't know the difference..

I would wear that bra even now that I'm not nursing.

Of course being a guy, his response is of no surprise to me.

That's a really nice nursing bra! But no, I'm not surprised at the comment. Men.

Those are GORGEOUS bras! Much better than the ratty ole Playtex that I wore for what seemed an eternity! My poor jingly-jangly boobies would have loved the luxury of those magnificent mammary-cradles!

Hee-hee.

Why do bras have to be padded, I need no padding. And my husband who LOVES way too large breasts, has offered to carry my girls around by hand. It's so practical, better support and he gets to play all day....If it only worked that way.

Carla, padded bras dim the headlights so to speak. As well as the unsightly nursing pad outline. I'd happily borrow your husband though, if he's offering...

He probaby thought he was giving you a compliment. Men always think bigger is better, right?

It is a nice bra. Too expensive for me, but very, very pretty! They don't even look like nursing bras.

Hey, I can see why he likes those! very VS, doncha think? In my day nursing bras looked like 50s torpedo bras. Lucky you!

Your husband and mine would get along smashingly. I'd wake up with a boob the size of a football (both my kids were single-side nursers and I could easily pump 16oz of buildup out of that sucker) and Dave would be drooling.

Nice. Does he even have access to them at the moment or are they like mine and being totally hogged by the baby?

Exactly!

There was a Simpsons episode when Homer decided to change his name. Then he wanted to change Marge's name, and all his suggestions sounded like p*rn names. One of them was Chesty LaRue. Sometimes, my husband calls me that in secret!

Thus far, no bra I've tried has evened out my feuding, lopsided girls. Left one never really ... deflated after nursing, while the right one is the size I'd hoped for. Unfortunately, one's eye is drawn to the drooping lefty. Sigh.

I was 22 when I had my first baby. I was cute and flat-stomached and satisfactorily mammarily endowed before then, and for the first 6 months of the pregnancy I remained flat-stomached and had enough of a size-change that my husband was discussing his good fortune... with my grandfather.

I may just never recover.

I know. Jeff still exclaims "Man, your boobs are HUGE" at least once a day. It just never gets old. Me on the other hand, I keep looking in the mirror hoping they're shrinking and trying my old tops on in vain thinking they might still fit.

My Husband takes my 4 year old daughter to her private swimming class once a week. Her instructer is a very beautiful, athletic 20 year younger version of me! This woman ( who is about 23) has been a part of our lives since my child was born and started taking swimming classes. She is very kind to my daughter and my daughter idolizes her. ( that's how it all began)We are members of a club and go there a lot... Whenever my child would see this woman ( she is also a life gaurd at the club)This woman attends ( works at) the Halloween parties etc.. my daughter really likes her.. she is her all time favorite teacher.At first I encouraged it as well.. I would say " oh Shania really likes you etc..." We would take pictures of the two of them at Halloween parties etc... ( my daughter wanted to be a " Cow Girl" for Halloween one year because this Woman was also dressed as a Cow Girl. Anyway, I have stopped " gushing" about this Woman but my Husband has not. He is learning more about her, he didn't really like what I was going to give this favorite Teacher for Christmas this year ( it was a cute little gift that would be from my daughter ( obviously) instead, he said " I know what would make Shania really really happy: a picture frame with her and our daughter in it" I went along with it at the time ( we never found one, so I gave what I initially wanted to with some " extra nice lip glosses because then I felt guilty) This teacher ended up giving my daughter a Christmas bag, full of Candie and chocolate made out of the characters she likes eg: Dora the Explorer..) AND a picture in a really cute frame of the two of them ( my daughter & herself) I have asked my Husband if he ever " thinks" about this Woman and he says no but he did relent and finally say that the only thing he can think of, is that one day, she was late for a swimming class and was fully clothed and he " noticed that she had breasts" my Husband has been a huge ( no pun intended) Breast Man since the day I first met him.He insists that he just " noticed them and that was the end of it, that he did not feel attracted to her and did not think of her breasts again" My problem is, I don't beleive him.. though he has sworn on our marriage that he does not fantasize about her ever. I would greatly appreciate another opinion. If anyone has, please, I would love to hear what you all think. Thank You.
