What if I have man boobs, can I wear this? JK. I’ve always wondered how BC’s like this one are different than normal BCs. What makes it unique for women?

I’ve never thought about man boobs... LOL I guess if you have them, then you WOULD need a bc designed for women. Usually products and services designed specifically for women differ in the price point, mostly I would guess, because we just agree to pay for it (eg. men’s haircut - $25, women’s - $45 to $65).

Please send me your mailing address and I’ll send it to you for sizing. :)

The obvious answer is this BC cannot put up with the hot air that a man would fill it with. $25 is almost a buck per hair for me - and for poor Greg it would be a total rip off.

BTW, Nice looking BC and I think that price is good for a quick sale. If my bride didn’t already have hers...

A lot of times, when it’s made for a woman, they relocate the attachment points for the shoulder straps. Some use swivel buckles and some even incorporate a "bra" type strap that has a built in cup that goes over the boobs to accommodate the female anatomy. It keeps the BC from riding up too much or discomfort from the straps across the females definite different shape. I have had more than one female student that was well endowed try to wear a run of the mill mans BC and it looks funny and I am sure its uncomfortable.
