The Boob of the Matter or Yoga and Busty Women

Some women would kill for big breasts. Most of us, well-endowed women, know a big bust comes with a hefty price–pun totally intended.

I am a yogi. I started yoga very late in life and was surprised how good it was for my mental welfare as well as physical. I was also shocked to find out that even at my age, yoga made me the most flexible I’ve been my whole life. However I would be even more flexible if my girls were not so-shall we say–prominent.

I thought, “Well, I’m sure I’m not the only woman with this issue.” I started asking around and got a lot of funny looks at first, but then other well-endowed yogis began talking.

Here are five ways boobs get in the way of a good yoga experience:

childs-pose

1. Child’s Pose can be tricky. If you are flexible enough to go flat, your big girls won’t let you, forming a stubborn and unmoving barrier between you and the floor.

2. My favorite pose, Pigeon, is very challenging for a big-breasted woman. You find that you have to adjust and re-adjust the girls in order not to squish them like grapes in a winery.

3. Branching out from pigeon,another pose my overly ample breasts make very awkward for me is the half-bound-lotus. Anyone with a larger than B-cup will find that two things will happen once you stretch over your leg; you will have your boobs so smashed against your lap they will look like flattened(ish) blobs and you will find yourself smelling your own foot.

4. Then, there is the full-bound-lotus. There’s a fun one. It really doesn’t matter how flexible you are or how easily you can flatten yourself into your own lap because those ladies hanging from your chest just aren’t going to let you. No way!

5. And last but not least, there’s the Crow. Not an easy pose to start with, it requires great balance and good placement of your hands and knees…add the unbalancing variable of heavy you-know-what and you have a recipe for falling on your head or just never taking flight.

Don’t even get me started on yoga clothing. When you wear a D+ cup, there is no such thing as a “modest” get-up. You could be wearing a turtle neck and I guarantee that by the time you have gone through a few downward dogs and sun salutations, your boobs will be trying to come out from hiding.

I love yoga and I’m not going to quit just because I have to fight with my own body every time. I just wanted to let you know, all you ladies with generous bosoms, that you are not alone!

  1. I believe in perfect timing, if that is what you’re looking for. For me, this article was perfectly timed. For the last week I have been alternating between a low impact/body sculpting with light weights workout and what I have come to call my own personal Yoga class. I decided to do this on my own as my schedule for work and my love for writing take up much of my time. I can fit this kind of workout into my schedule using my ‘basement’ as the gym. I love that I have found your article to help me tailor my Yoga session to fit ‘my’ needs. Thanks for your help and insight. As a beginner, I feel better already!
