Hi Mindy,

 

The reaction from my PCP and new urologist were great. They both read my letters I brought with me and discussed my upcoming GCS with me.

 

Hugs,

Mike

I'm still so confused on bra sizing. If I follow the standard subtract band from bust method I'm a C. There's no way I could fill a C cup. I've been wearing A cups. They're not completely full or running over but I'm a little sore by the end of the day. I've looked at up-sizing to a B but feel I would just float in one. Am I missing something?

Liz, perhaps the best thing to do is to go to a store like Victoria's Secret and get a professional sizing.  I remember my first trip there and the embarrassment i felt but it was worth it.  I received good advice as well as facing my fears.

 

Gentle hugs,

@ElizabethStar I agree with Charlize go to a fitter or to Victoria Secrets 

 

let them find what you need.  Going with an online store or a Department store you aren’t going to get the right size it’s hit and miss.

 

I don’t know your size but I’m a 40.  Well you can’t hardly get a 40 A. I buy 40B and use an enhancer or push-up pad to fill it our.  I also have SOMA brand.  It’s a store that is part of the Chico’s and Black and White group. They are far more comfortable and keep the sides in check.  What I measure following the standard women’s charts would be a C cup. And that’s laughable.  
 

I think our problem is our body structure is very different in that area so the subtract your band and that’s your cup won’t ever work

Hei alle sammen,

I had a stroke last March. My greatest fear was that I would be taken off Estrogen. I could have tried to lie to my endocrinologist (She’s at the San Francisco VA hospital) or tried to sidestep my cardiologist (300 miles away in Eureka where I live) . In the end I decided to be totally transparent with them both. Good news is even though they let me know the possible consequences of taking estrogen they are currently good with keeping me on estrogen for the present. I was also switched from patch to injections and recently bought my first B cup bra. Jackie is complete correct when she says for us older girls change takes longer. I am in three years of my HRT.

I tried the calculator too but it told me I was a 34d and i about fell over laughing. I tried one on at Walmart and the cups fit perfect but the band was tight. I have been wearing a 38b from Victoria secret the band is perfect but the cup is big but I’m finally finally out more. I’d really like to get a professional fitting at some point

My understanding is that cup size is proportional to band size-  An A cup on a 40 band is the same volume as a B or C with a smaller band.

I need a 42 band so I'm just starting to fill an A cup.

I wear sports bras a lot when they work with my tops.

Wacole used to do professional fitting during breast cancer awareness month.  Didn’t happen this year for obvious reasons.  Watch for it and make an appointment to get fitted.

@Jandi I understand that too. A sales person at a well known chain store determined that I needed a cup size not available in my band size so she suggested buying a smaller band size and using an extender.  I wasn’t keen on the idea and didn’t do it.

 

Most bra manufacturers don’t make a 40a and only some styles have a 38a.   They just don’t cater to our market.  And any that do either want you to buy huge breast forms or pay an exorbitant price.

Guess there's not that many of us from their standpoint.

I have a fairly large ribcage, and the boobettes are just that - boobettes.

I went for a bra fitting a couple of years ago.  They measured me as a 38A, and they actually had some 38As in stock.  I tried them all on and couldn't fill any of them.  I ended up with a 36B, which does fit, but needs an extender to be comfortable.

 

I may have grown a little bit since then (I am nearing 4 years on HRT), possibly enough to actually fill a 38A.  I'll try again once covid is over.

 

My girls may be small, but they sure are cute! :)

Yes, sister sizing. Technically, since I'm a 36a I should have the same cup volume as a 34b, 32c, and 30d but obviously the bands would be too small and cups may be too close together.

@Erikkait's always best to keep your Medical Staff up to date honestly. I hope you're doing well after the stroke. 

 

Best wishes, stay positive, and safe,

That's another thing.  With a larger band, the boobs are farther apart and you get weird cleavage things.

Oh my goodness that hurt!  I was getting a boat hook out of a lazerette,  it’s like a chest, on my boat  I bend over and made a perfect direct hit on my left boobie.  Dead center perfect bullseye!  I saw star fish for sure.

 

other than that I had a great day.

Well I was mowing and remowing a portion of my lawn to mulch up pine needles. Ok your are thinking what does that have to do with breasts?  Well, my shirt was rubbing my nipples, particularly the one I hit Saturday.  I had to stop and ask my wife if she had a sports bra I could wear.  That helped me finish.  Boy, I’ve got a lot to learn about these.  I wanted them so now they are telling me all about what I asked for.  
 

Wow!

Yes, indeedy!  It didn't take me long on HRT before mine were making the same request.

 

Fun story... I was part-time, dressing female at home and male out in public.  I was wearing sports bras when out in public to keep the girls from showing, as well as for sensitivity control.  The concert band I was playing in had a big performance coming up, and the uniform was white shirt over black pants.  Well, white shirts are often revealing, so I had to go out and purchase a white T-shirt for the express purpose of concealing my bra!

 

I made up for it the next month.  By that time, I was out full-time, and newly out to the band.  For the final concert of the season, I was determined not to wear anything that could be construed as male.  I was the only woman in the band in a skirt, but it conformed to the white-over-black uniform! :)

I get this.

Seems like most women wear britches these days.  But I just don't want to.  Maybe because I had to most of my life.

Tenor sax.  I used to play clarinet, decades ago.  The fingering for the sax is similar enough, yet different, to confuse me.

Like others here I waited so long to be part time out that I like to dress up.  Skorts, skirts and dresses preferred over slacks but leggings are ok.  
 

that poor nipple has had a rough last few days.  It needs soft care.  Ever notice how much softer women’s clothing is compared with men’s?

      I'm about 2 and a half months in to hormones, and I have definitely have some growth now. My first sign was last week. I don't wear a bra yet, so I was hanging around the house, and I caught my self in a mirror. I definitely looked like a typical woman not wearing a bra. At least in the chest area.    So I grabbed a bra, and I filled the cups perfectly compared to 2 months ago. I'm excited, but also pissed ill probably have to buy new bras in a few months.   I don't know which way my breast will go through. One grandma has about a c, and the other has bigger ones now because of putting on weight, or they were always big. I haven't seen any young photos of her. My mother last time I saw her probably around a c also. No sisters, or blood aunts also. That leaves out female cousins, and even if I could use my female cousins for reference. Apparently all four of my uncles are breast men, so that skews that.

      Orgasm's do change on HRT and do move away from just the place below your belly button and become more generalized, but it is pretty much like fishing.  The biggest one  was too big to get on the boat to take a picture of.  Having been on HRT for 12 years now, I do not have a large number, and they usually come from gentle touch in a lot of body areas, and they take a LONG TIME to work their way up to a climax.  The biggest problem is getting a partner who can put time in with you, and too many guys can't do it that long.  Nipples, other breast work, long slow body rubs, a nibble on the ear or two, breath and repeat until big O happens.  On T, it is lock, load, and fire.  You do have to practice and you do have to find out how YOU work.  Nothing is guaranteed, but all O's are created equal, it is that that is how they are created, not finished.  It will take 6 months to 3 years for your hormones to create the finished big event, but don't lose hope.

      Hi! I'm William and have recently come out as ftm, as I said in the title I am overweight and am just worried they can stop me from receiving hrt strictly because of my weight. I know I will have to lose some for my top surgery but I need T to be able to be more comfortable in a gym. Thank you for any suggestions or experiences any of you have had with this!

      Sorry for moaning, but it’s just so painful and exhausting. I’m hanging in there, but sometimes I just start to cry.

      Nothing too heavy here just strange day-to-day weirdness that you notice or strange new experiences.   I was at a Starbucks over the weekend. I felt cute and witchy in all black. Boots, top, skirt, mask, even under clothes all black. While I waited in the holding  area for my coffee a guy comes over by me and starts mumbling to himself about how he can't find his GF. Why is he starting at me? He mumbles around a little more. Keeps staring at me and leaves. Was he checking me out? Trying to clock me? I don't know. All I know is I'm the only woman, out of 4, that he looked at. I look at one of the woman "What just happened?" she just shrugged her shoulders.   Went on a service call for work at the office for a housing community. All black again today.  Met the guy outside. As I come around the back of my Jeep he starts"Hey< how's it going buddy...sorry, I thought you were a...... I wish would have finished his statement. It was a pretty easy job. A power transformer was loose in the outlet. Just had to re-bend the prongs on the plug, replace the backup battery and was done. With the same guy had to goto another site around the block.   I got my truck over the garage he was waiting. He points a small box up on the wall. A few seconds later He shows up with a ladder for me to use. So I'm up on a ladder, in tight jeans and I swear I could feel him staring at my ass. I finished my work and left.   Are my womanly senses kicking in? Can I now sense if someone is checking me out? I think more research is needed.

      It happened a little to me when I was on tab but has gotten more extreme since switching to the shot. The day I do my shot it start ramping up pretty quick. The next day is a lot worse. Mood swings from depressed to angry to starving through out the day and is pretty much tapered-off buy day 3. I love it.

      Thank You Susan.   Yes, My life is going pretty good right now and I hope it continues that way, and yes I feel the freedom.  At least I have new friends to ask for advise if it gets real challenging again.      Much Love,    ---WILLOW---

      I am a little different than most, because I am on ADT to shut down hormones for prostate cancer. As soon as my testosterone decreased, my skin quickly started smoothing out. I am not on estradiol yet. Later I started taking Finasteride and using Minoxidil to regrow the hair on my head. I am taking Biotin & Collagen to strengthen my nails. I don't know if it is helping my hair, because it had already started regrowing before the Hair, Skin, & Nails supplement. I may need to increase my Biotin supplement, because my nails are still brittle.   I have not noticed any increase of hair growing in unwanted areas. The loss of testosterone seemed to slow that growth down. YMMV   Hugs, Mike

      I think you are right so there is no need to explain anything. She sounds like a great friend. I have a few female friends like that and gender really doesn't come up in conversation. They treat me like any other girl friend. I said that just in case she asked questions about it.

      @LusciousTheLock You are very correct, children should never have to go through what we had to go through. Sadly it still goes on, and probably will go on until the powers that be are finally held to account for not doing their jobs and doing something when children today report their parents for abusing them, and have medical evidence to back up the claims. I cannot speak intelligently for the UK, but here in America they have a horrible habit of putting the abused kids back with the abusive parents. Sadly the kids sometimes either end up as runaways, or dead from the abuse. We got lucky to survive. I am so glad to have met you on here. If I don't talk to you again, I will talk to you after I get out of the hospital.  Hugs,  Gina
