Brief Answer:
Mostly normal thing due to large breast.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Large breast has a relatively vast blood circulation and it is quite COMMON for veins to be visible through skin. It is also seen during pregnancy.

In majority of cases, it has nothing to do with anything abnormal. It will go away automatically. Stop handling your breast too much and wear comfortable breast support.

It is suggested to consult with your gynecologist and discuss it during routine annual examination of breast.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health. Good luck.

Regards,
Dr S Patra

Brief Answer:
Sport bra should be slight loose and comfortable.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for follow up query.

Your breast support (like sport bra) shouldn't be more tight fitting. It will be slight loose and comfortable. Don't wear breast support during bed time.

Hope, I have answered your query. Kindly, close the discussion.

All the best and good luck.

Brief Answer:
They will go away naturally.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for additional query.

They will go away automatically with nature's time. You should follow previous suggestion (like wearing loose fitting bra, take off during bed time and avoid handling breast too much etc). It is a physiological phenomena mostly.

Hope, it helps for you. Good luck.
