  I know plenty of women who have had bra fittings that have gone very wrong. Add in new breasts due to an augmentation, lift, reduction, or reconstruction and you have the recipe for a potential disaster. Any body changes, menopause, weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, have a major impact on your body image and it …

Growing up with out breasts from a now fullbusted woman

There are so many posts about growing up with large breasts.

I wanted to give a visual representation to the war on plus four.
