The problem with breast forms – wonderful though they are – is that they are just two blobs of silicon we plonk on our chest and hold in place with that fabulous Triumph of engineering : the bra.
The issue is that they do not transition gradually, or blend in with the skin of our chest, like a GG’s do. They just rise out of the plain like a pair of Ayres Rocks.
Some implants achieve this natural look, but there also those that resemble skin covered blobs much like round breast forms.
Forms look fine in the right style of bra, and under clothes, and give us the profile we wish for. But not aesthetically pleasing on our bare chest. This issue is compounded by their size. The smaller ones do not have enough surface area or volume to come close to real breasts. Larger sizes do fill up the space better.
In another post I have shown that most breast forms are marketed for GG’s and on a their sizing is based on a 34″ chest. On a 38″ chest a “C” cup form is designed to fill a 38A cup bra, and not a “C” cup.
How they fill up the space:-
An example: Ivita “C” cup forms are 6.3 x 4.3″ = approx 27 sq” per form. “DD” cup forms are 6.7 x 5.1″ = approx 34 sq” per form. So the DD forms are 25% bigger and so occupy more chest space.
Put crudely; on a 38″ male chest a “C” cup form looks rather small and out of proportion. So the bigger the better. Up to about an F cup looks more natural and is better proportioned than a “C” cup form. Note that their “projection” is only marginally bigger.
At least, this is my experience. On my frame a pair of F cup forms is in proportion, and gives some side swell, and fills up a full coverage bra admirably. Though I mostly wear a DD size.
Are breastplate forms the answer? You know the “pullover” type? In the past I have sworn off against these for a whole list of negatives (not least the price), but I am curious to know how effective they are at defeating the “Ayres Rock” problem.
I would love to hear from girls who have tried these. In theory the expensive ones appear to show the natural swell of the breast from the suit’s body skin. There are cheaper ones – Vollence has one on Amazon that is a chest plate secured by plastic straps at about half the cost of the cheapest “pullover” types. Anyone tried these?
It’s all down to personal choice of course and we all fit in a spectrum from A to Huge. I am just trying to raise awareness that there is a tradeoff between your natural chest size and the size of the forms you feel comfortable with.
