missyj1978,

I hope you did not get hurt. I am surprised that you broke the chairs despite being on the light side of the curves here.

I wish I had a girlfriend to allow me to factually contribute to the thread.

I have to agree! They break with such ease that your weight must be concentrated on your lower parts, or so i would think with my imagination.. Stupid weak lawn chairs!

Honestly, some of them are so poorly engineered and cheaply made that it's a wonder they don't collapse when even skinny people use them!

This isn't exactly a break but my partner was apparently sitting on a wooden chair in his house every day for a while and one day a skinny friend of his came round and sat on the same chair and it just cracked and broke! My bf is around 450lbs so I guess taking that weight repeatedly just weakened it! He sticks to to the metal leg chairs now!

Well I just officially broke my first thing! I sort of thudded down on my bed as I usually do and there was a huge cracking sound, loud enough that my family were concerned and asking what that was. I actually checked my bed frame it was so loud! It seems though that I broke something inside of the mattress as the part I flopped down on now has no resistance at all if I lean on it and just squashes down flat. It was an old mattress but I am still in shock!

My futon is broken. The area where I sit is now sinking. Time to replace it I think.

This Xmas I was so embarrassed. Being the holiday I dressed up in a blue buttondown shirt, nice slacks and a belt to hold my big belly in. Well obv I gorge myself during dinner to a point where I overate so much I could barely move. I stood up and stretched out raising my hands to my side. Then with a gunshot pop my belt bursted off of me flying to the floor and revealing a big brown button on my slacks.

Sooooo...I was sitting on my son's desk chair, which is like a folding chair, but padded, and supposedly sturdier...and I suddenly felt the chair literally bending beneath my weight. It didn't actually break...but it is definitely not a useable chair anymore.

I think a chair of a 8 year old Boy is not made for a big woman! Every time when i am in a furniture store and the the furniture for Kids ore Teens then i think: Will this hold the weight of my girlfriend or will it break immediately?

Well, lol, this was actually a type of "sturdy" folding chair with padding. It's a full size desk with the full size chair...so in essence, I broke an adult chair.

Default Didn't break, but ...

We have a big screen plasma TV that I decided would be nicer to mount on the wall, instead of having it sit on a table.

Unlike the LCD sets, this thing is fairly heavy -- so I bought a large size bracket for it. It's the type where a metal arm pulls out from the wall and lets you angle the set to the left, right, or tilt it up or down a bit.

The bracket had some pretty big bolts to screw into the wood studs behind the drywall, so I was sure it was up to the task of holding the TV, but my g/f looked doubtful.

So before putting the set up, I showed her how sturdy it was by grabbing the arm and hanging from it for a second. She said, "Let me give it a *real* test!" and hung from it herself. (At 185-190lbs. or so, I was well under the 225lb. capacity it claimed on the box. She's a good 100lbs. or so heavier than me, though - so it flexed and the metal groaned when she gave it a try. But it held her!) She said, "Not bad!" and was satisfied.

Had my first real "fatty break" last week
I was walking on a wooden pathway/bridge (not over water or anything dangerous) and stepped right through the wood! It was pretty embarrassing since there were people around and we were at an event so when we walked by later they had kind of marked it and covered it haha. But it was also exciting to break my first big thing while gaining! ^.^

I've broken house chairs, computer chairs, one of those high school auditorium seats, a recliner, a bed, and a step in my old apartment building. I'm so afraid about the toilet breaking one day while I'm sitting on it, but I think that's just anxiety! I finally am using a metal legged chair that holds upt o 800lbs (which Im nowhere near!) for a computer and dining chair now.
