RdeMaine (who's out near Hollywood) has been lurking recently, and I'm hoping he'll post some advice.
Hmmm...While I have the utmost respect for RdeMaine and his cello-playing, the last time I saw him I did not notice large breasts, though it's been a couple of years. Betsyarr, is your abdomen also large? If you are overweight, I highly recommend losing weight. This helped me with my comfort and posture when I began playing cello, and playing the cello, among other things, gives me motivation to keep working at it. Also, if you are new to playing the cello, please know that some discomfort is common when starting out, and will decrease as you become more familiar with your cello. Welcome!Smile
