    Hi everyone, I am 5'3 and 1/2 in height, size 12/14 in clothes and my breast size is 38GG. As you can tell I am definitely top heavy and some what out of proportion. I am definitely having a BR however, I would like to know what I am really in for - have any of you had a BR? Is it true you lose weight during the process of healing?

    Also, any ideas on what breast size I should go down to?

    Maybe try losing a bit of weight to see how much that changes things before having surgery.

    The fact that she is a size 12/14 with 38GG breasts is obviously a problem that can't be solved with weight loss.

    As to the OP - I can't help you but I hope you find the information you are looking for.

    Two of my sisters lost a bit weight for this reason and are now happy with the size of her breasts. Size 12/14 is normal but losing a bit of weight isn't going to make her unhealthy.

    I agree, but to want a breast reduction would indicate that she has already tried things such as losing weight, or has sought medical advice which has told her about options such as breast reduction. With breasts as large as this, I don't think that going down a dress size or two is really going to decrease the size of her breasts by a considerable amount for her to be happy!

    You've come to a student forum for this information instead of researching it on proper websites or phoning up and asking?

    I'm actually a small size 12 but have to wear size 14 tops to fit my breast size. I used to be a size 10 but was still a 38GG so decided to eat in order to have some sort of body symmetry. (Y)

    Thank you for this, I'm so happy that you understand why I posted this and didn't attack me based on my dress size.

    People really don't seem to understand this - even with me, I've a 27 inch waist, 36 inch hips but 34DD boobs, so instead of a size 10/12 I always wind up having to wear a dress size 14. Irritating...

    I hope you get some good info from people who've had a BR

    OP seeing as you are size 14 and band size 38 i would suggest you lose a bit of weight first and also do strengthening excersises to improve your back muscles and then consider it because breast reduction is invasive and leaves noticable scars. if you still feel they are too big and are causing you pain then you should take a trip to your GP (you may be able to get it on the NHS) or organise a consultation with a surgeon. if you do end up having to go private make sure they are a reputable surgeon, not just the cheapest one you can get.

    there's a lot of info out there if you just google it eg.

    If by 'the 101' you mean the 101 reasons why breast reductions are a crime against humanity then here it is:

    1. Big boobs are amazing
