When you’re traveling, clothing and safety go hand in hand. Especially for those of us who have ginormous boobies. The size of your bodacious rack will draw attention no matter what you wear, but you can control (somewhat) the type of reactions you receive.
When you’re thinking about what to pack for your next big adventure, remember to think with your brain, and not with your bra. The saying ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it’, should probably not come into play. In other words, there should be some semblance of modesty. I’m not saying you need to pack like you’re an amish girl on her first holiday. That’s not it. I am saying that your travel attire probably shouldn’t be an exact replica of Pamela Anderson’s wardrobe.

Bras – As a girl with ginormous boobs it is vital to remember to bring extra bras when you travel. Buying bras in your size is going to be next to impossible in most countries, so carrying 3-4 is ideal; think of the dreaded strap break. Boobies falling out. Yikes! (WonderBra wears well, and generally fits well. Think function when you travel, not seductress)
Sports Bras – Most of us ginormous-boobie-girls swear by wearing sports bras over our normal bra, in an effort to keep our girls in line. Make sure you pack 2-3. Sports bras can be rather hard to find in large sizes.
Pashmina – If you’re traveling in a highly religious country, you’ll need to cover up when you visit holy sites (and sometimes when your just walking around).
Suntan Oil – I know, you’re confused. Suntan oil is slippery. If you’re wearing it and someone grabs your arm, you should be able to wiggle free. But please, don’t oil yourself down like you’re a human slip n’ slide. Please, dear God, don’t do that.
Loud Whistle – This is a safety item as well. You have ginormous boobs. Men (and in my case, old Chinese women) will try to grab your boobs on occasion. Sometimes you can get rid of them by yelling at them loudly, other times a whistle will come in handy.
Extra T-shirts – You may have luck finding t-shirts that fit, depending on where you are. Pack a couple extras, just in case.
Sewing Kit – This should be somewhat obvious.
Safety Pins – If your bra strap snaps, the safety pins will come in handy!
Small ziploc bags – I carry a lot of stuff in my bra, including a phone. Put your phone in the plastic bag, then put it in your bra. Perspiration and phones are not friends.

Here’s the thing. Your boobies are fabulous. You know it, and probably every freaking person who meets you knows it. As a girl with ginormous boobs you probably know a thing or two about how to keep yourself safe (man, do I hope you know how to do that), and how the way you dress can effect your safety; not to mention the importance of respecting the culture of the country you’re in.
Think of where you’re going. Pack for comfort. Be respectful. Remember that finding bras and clothing that fits will be hard. Buy higher quality items (they wear better) and pack a couple extra pieces.
