to assume I´m not the only person to find seatbelts uncomfortable
Happy36 · 05/08/2015 16:14
Been in a car more often this past month or so than usual (I don´t drive and we don´t own a car). Seatbelts are so uncomfortable! Does anyone else find the seatbelt rubs their boob/nipple on the opposite side? I have taken to holding the belt away from my body in the boob area to avoid the unpleasant rubbing sensation.

I don't get that problem, they go across the front of my throat instead. It doesn't make any difference how I adjust them so I am just constantly uncomfortable. All anyone suggests is to get the padded things to wrap around but I find them equally uncomfortable as the seatbelt is still going across my throat. If I had an accident then I would break my neck I'm sure.

I'm only 5'2 so I have one of the little plastic clips to hold the belt in the right place otherwise it cuts right across my neck (and was really, really unpleasant in a minor bump as instead of my shoulder and torso it cut across my neck).
You get them from Betterware or on amazon/ebay.

I'm 5'8" and in my old car, the seatbelt used to irritate the skin right under my left breast. My new car is built for comfort and I don't have any problems.
Please don't hold your seatbelt away from your body, however irritating it is! My mother does that because the seatbelt grates on her neck, and I always tell her I'm not going to drive if she does it. I was saved in an accident by a seat belt and it's worth any irritation.
