    Hi im not a really big person know or when i was at skool as soon as i started getting boobs they were big and like someone else has said it gave me a lot of unwanted attention. As i got older they got bigger and even more so wen i had my three children 42/44E/F. Im 42yrs know nd i lost loads of weight 4yrs ago and went down to a 36f i have very indented marks in my shoulders from the weight and i do suffer with a lot of neckache nd backache a few years ago i decided to go to the doctor's not once but twice and i was flatley refused as i was not in the right post code area....... i have never gone back or even bothered to complain and resorted to the idea of the unhappiness of the pain and that i will always have to hide away because of them. I would love to be able to go private but just can't afford to.

    Hi, I am a 38GG breast size and i really hate it.! my breasts look like a 70yr old's {i am 48yrs old} they hang so low when not wearing a bra, and i hate them so much, the pain and uncomfortableness i have to endure on a daily basis is just awfull, not to mention my confidence which is way low. I cant even sleep properly.! I would love to be on the show and try to get some help but i would be so embarrassed if anyone who know's me saw me.. My children call me name's as do family member's, men stare at me all the time i hate going out the house. It's affecting my life in a big way.! I suffer from backache all the time, neckache, i even have a hump forming on my back from stooping over due to the weight of them..
