And if it goes to the ground, titty twister submission.

Also, if I box amateur, chest protection is a must. But need something that will fit at least a D size chest.

Different women seem to be more or less sensitive to boob shots, in my experience. It just doesn't hurt me that much to get hit in the tits, but I know chicks who hit the canvas every time a solid one lands.
However, if someone was landing shot after shot on the old chesticles, it could build up and leave them pretty battered. A chick I know came out of a grapple-heavy FTR bout with her boobs absolutely black and blue from hard knees. It didn't bother her in the fight, but did affect her training for some time after while they healed.
However, I think AnnaTrocity's advice on not becoming overly-reliant is pretty sound. I wouldn't wear it too often in training.

To my knowledge I think it's not really done out of unspoken mutual respect.

In women's Muay Thai, do fighters ever intentionally throw teeps to the chest? Or is that considered bad sportsmanship/not an effective strategy?
I've never been punched in the boob hard, but I used to play soccer and the amount of times i took a ball to the chest boggles the mind, and i never really felt hurt anymore that taking a ball somewhere else. I guess it'd hurt if i got hit well there, but that goes for most places.
Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??

I'm not really sure i've seen a big boob hit yet and i watch a lot of women's local MT here.

My wife is in the D camp and she swears by Under Armour sports bras and can fit the chest protector I linked.

Get some decent turtle shells and keep your elbows in. We had to wear chest protectors during our first three fights and I have no earthly idea what the point was.
*edit* Ah, I just saw that you *have* to have it for amateur boxing. Sucks!
