Hi guys I’m obsessed with this shit lately because I don’t want anyone to have unhappy, unsupported boobs like I did. Even if you think your boobs and bras are fine, try it. It will make a big difference in comfort, support, and shape, even if you have small boobs or big boobs. A proper fitting…
This is easily the most thorough and accurate tutorial I’ve ever seen. If you’ve been having trouble deciphering the magical boob code, check out this handy decoder ring.
Paige “Rampaige” Halsey Warren is most well-known for her webcomic series, Busty Girl Comics. The comics make light of issues those of us who are bustier tend to deal with, and since it’s creation in January of 2012, it’s hit home with a lot of women.
And these books are all also available on Amazon as well so if you are outside of the US, just search Busty Girl Comics in your local Amazon site and it’ll ship to you! (Book 3 may take a few days to show up with this method)
Thanks for all your patience while I got the third book ready! I hope you like it!
P.S. If you’re thinking of giving BGC as a gift this season, don’t forget there’s also a store!
Today’s comic was #300 and with that Busty Girl Comics is officially done posting daily.
Don’t panic! The resources, advice, and store will still be here and I’ll be posting updates from time to time about Vol. 3 (due out soon!), upcoming shows, related projects, and other things that I promise will be relevant.
There might be some comics you may not have seen so please check out the backlog, which will remain up, or buy the books (or you may want to reread them, which is highly encouraged <3). I will be moving on to other art projects and will announce when my next comic series starts up. I also have a sketch blog (not always safe-for-work; look for sfw tag at top) for those interested in my other artistic endeavors.
Now that that’s out of the way, I have something to tell you all:
This comic has been a significant part of my life for the past 10 and a half months and it’s been an adventure, to say the least. I had never thought I’d have the opportunity to make a comic that’s read by so many people and made a difference for so many, especially so early in my career. This whole thing has been such a wonderful experience. I still have trouble realizing that the silly doodles I started out of frustration ended up giving so many, myself included, a new appreciation for our bodies and the busty people we care about. I never would have dreamed I could be a part of such a broad and welcoming community, let alone contribute to it as much as I have. You’ll never know how much the readers of this series have meant to me this year. Thank you all so much.
Every time someone reblogs one of these comics, I feel ashamed that my breasts are too small... and I'm a D cup...
I’m sorry you feel that way but why would my comics make you feel like that have to be any particular size? Whatever size you are is worth being happy about and if you don’t relate to all of the problems that come from being larger than a D, isn’t that a good thing? And if you don’t relate to the perks, that doesn’t mean you don’t have any perks of your own that come from the size you are.
My comics are simply a way for people to vent about everyday frustrations and laugh about shared experiences. Not every comic is going to apply to everyone because we’re all different. I should hope that everyone can still understand the perspective of the subject of each comic, even if they don’t relate personally, and they don’t take it as a personal insult when they don’t relate.
I am so sorry, I know you've answer this before, but it was months ago, and I can't find it again! Where do you get all your awesome gifs?
I like to hoard them. I follow lots of fandom sites and a couple of reaction gif blogs so when I come across one I know and like, I toss it into an animation folder and then into a subfolder with the reaction it depicts (ex. le gasp, oh hai, etc.)
I should also mention: I never edit them in any way so if the original gif-maker put a watermark on the gif, it’ll still be there. I also know what movie/show/what-have-you each gif is from originally so shoot me an ask if you’re ever curious.
Since it’s the season of giving and all that good stuff, could I get some help from you all in finding charities that support breasted people?
We all know how hard it is to afford bras and other supportive undergarments so if you know of a charity that helps support (literally and figuratively, of course) those in need please add it to the list? I’d particularly like to add charities that help people regardless of their size, gender identity, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, etc.
If you know of a charity that supplies breasted people with undergarments they would otherwise be unable to afford, please post it in the response box below (Expand the notes for responses; Links are allowed and encouraged) ?
As many of you already know, I’m wrapping up the series officially at comic 300. I explained why in this post if you’d like to read that. It’s time for me to move on. The site will stay up for the resources and community but the regular updates will come to an end. I will post updates on any future comic endeavors (including the one I’m working on now and would like to start posting by the end of the year) and conventions as well.
On another note: I could use your help. I’ve been trying to get into the animation industry since I graduated a couple of years ago but it’s rather challenging making the right connections. I know this is a really random thing to ask but if you know of anyone in the animation industry (particularly for television and movies), could you please show them my comic and/or portfolio and tell them I’m trying to get into story and character development? I will be making animated shows someday but I need a bit of help getting in the door right now. It would mean the world to me if you could help at all. Thank you.
emsnippet said: Doesn’t this sort of suggest smaller size boobs aren’t busty…? I’m kinda confused why “and not so busty” is included…
Well, “busty” is a personal point of reference. Someone who’s a D might not feel busty because they don’t feel their chest is particularly prominent, despite being traditionally seen as busty. Likewise, someone with an B cup could consider themselves busty because they feel like their chest is too prominent and is always getting in their way or causing them problems. It’s entirely up to the individual if they consider themselves busty or not.
The “and not-so-busty” title today is because this conversation usually happens between someone who considers themselves busty but would rather be less so and someone who does not consider themselves busty and would like to. Simple as that.
I would like to offer my sewing skill and time. There are probably many young gender queer and trans folk on tumblr who want to bind their chests and don’t have the money/family support to purchase a quality binder, and don’t have the ability/resources to make their own. Because I don’t want anyone to use ace bandage or duct tape, I would like to propose an offer.
If you would like a binder made in your size from spandex fabric, I will sew you one. All you need to do is pay for the material (shouldn’t be too much for a simple bra or tank top sized binder) See this website for special/ fancy stuff, but I can get normal cheap stuff from my local store. Provide me with your measurements, address, and the money for fabric, and I will donate my time to you. Young folk need to support each other.
Please pass this on! Open to anyone in need.
If any of my readers are looking to get to their right body and binding is their ideal option, please do it safely. There are links on the FAQ list about binding if you’d like to know more.
Why do you call them problems anyway? I don't see the major problems in lots of your comics (which are perfectly good by the way), I mean, it's it's annoying when my DDDs get in the way, but not really a problem to be worried about or dealt with I guess... But I don't know....Just wondering...
And it was very nice not having to stress about getting a comic out as I flew back across the country. Thanks for all the sweet comments that reassured me that I could allow myself that. You guys are the best <3
Everyone has the right to feel happy* in their own skin but sometimes this requires medical assistance. As long as the decision to alter one’s body comes with lots of forethought and comprehension, I don’t see anything wrong with it.
There’s actually a list of people in the FAQ page who’ve had reduction surgery and have offered to answer any questions for people considering it for themselves.
*Feeling happy in your own skin includes medical reasons. It’s hard to be happy when you’re in pain all the time.
I've noticed that you're being hard on yourself about not getting your comic out on time. I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I don't care what time of day you release your art, I'm just impressed by your talent and grateful that you share it with us. Thanks!
You know you can just schedule posts and not have to wake up in the morning
Yup. I do that most of the time but after working two 12-hour days at a convention I wasn’t really in the mood to make a comic last night. Truth be told, I’m pretty pleased with the fact that I’ve still been doing a daily comic despite being on vacation this past week. Retrospectively, I really should have taken the week off.
