Would "my shoulders are big" be more natural in English though? haha

Both seem equally natural to me, and that would be Mabega yangu ni makubwa in Swahili.

I think it is common in English to speak of "broad shoulders" rather than of "big shoulders". I don't know if that would require the Swahili to be "mabega mapana" or if "big shoulders" could also be translated as "mabega mapana."
