Boobs seem to be getting bigger, and that’s not good news for everyone. A struggling health service and a rising demand for breast reduction has seen the number of 16-24-year-old women having the surgery privately rocket.
Podcaster and body confidence champion Jackie Adedeji, herself a big-breasted woman, meets people with big boobs to investigate this growing issue. Some tell her about the pain the weight of their bust brings, the difficulty they have exercising and the horrors of being overly sexualised when they were schoolgirls, while others celebrate their bigger boobs. She follows one woman’s private surgery and meets another who successfully crowdfunded their P-cup breast reduction.
Jackie speaks to doctors about the reasons surgery is so difficult to come by and is even left questioning her own decision to not to go under the knife.
A witty, intelligent and eye-opening look at how women ( and men ) really feel about their breasts.
