jealousofstars: (Disney Faeries - Vidia)
I found this article on BuzzFeed where the writer describes their experience with life with big breasts and their experience post-breast reduction.

I swear it was like looking in a diary and reading my own experience.

The only difference between me and the writer of the article is that where they were a G-cup pre-reduction, I was much,much larger before I went under the knife.

But so much of what they write just hit home with me and I am sitting here just feeling so, so, so thankful that I was able to have a breast reduction.

Especially this line, referring to how they felt after the reduction, "For the first time, I wasn't controlled and confined by the limits of my own body."

It's been one year (and two months) since I've had my reduction. And while I am still on the well-endowed end of the boob spectrum, I am much more comfortable in my own skin. There is no back or shoulder pain, no pain from wearing bras that are two to three sizes too small because I couldn't afford having custom bras made (and the bras I was wearing still cost a pretty penny because I bought them at specialty stores).

Today I can go into any store and buy a bra. I can go into Walmart or Target or Victoria Secret (this is the big one for me. I'm buying some VS bras when I go back to the states just because I CAN) or wherever and find a bra in my size. I don't have to go to Lane Bryant or Casique and hope they have something near my size. I don't have to debate on whether or not to shell out upwards of $200 on a custom-made bra.

And the best thing is?

There is still room for me to get even smaller, once I find a work out I can stick with for longer than a month...

But that's a different post for another time.
