(only girls) I have gynecomastia which bra can I wear?

I don't understand: I'm not sure what you are asking.Are you male or female?

Some overweight men have fat that simulates breasts ("pseudogynecomastia"); most men with this don't like it and it can be removed by liposuction.

It can be surgically removed if it is a cosmetic issue, but this is not necessary. Alcohol use, marijuana, and steroid use can cause it, but often it just happens by itself. ...Read more
