    I know there have been threads about this before, and I'm very sorry.

    I was just wondering if anybody had had one before - or if you know anybody who has had one, and if so, how you found it? Did you have it privatly or on the NHS?

    Before I get the regular comments,
    I'm 17 years old, and I don't want one now - but I'd like to keep my options open and never say never.

    Losing weight won't help, even when I was 32kg, I still had DD breasts.
    Plus - I've got a 30 back already, so I don't know if losing weight will help anyhow.

    Why do I want one? Because My back constantly hurts, I'm tired of having to pay £40 for one bra - and even then, only from one shop. I want to be able to do aerobic sport - I currently can't, because nowhere does a sports bra in my size (including on the internet and Bravissimo) and if I wear a regular bra, my boobs just hurt too much.

    And I'm also just so tired of not being able to find tops that fit both my waist, and my boobs.

    Gr.

    So yes, any constructive comments?

    If you see the doctor and they can see that its giving you back problems then you could have one done on the NHS. I know someone who had that. Obviously if you had a dodgy knee that was causing you problems then the NHS would treat it, the same goes for a breast reduction.

    Definitely go and see your doctor, if its already causing you back trouble imagine what itll be like in twenty years time.

    While you're there, see if a couple of your cup sizes can be added on to me!

    As said, if it's hurting you, go see a doctor.

    Don't suppose you could show us a picture?

    ...just kidding.

    I had a reduction 4 weeks ago. I went private (there is like a 0.00001% chance of you getting it on the NHS, try it but don't get ur hopes up) and went with Transform Cosmetic Group. I've heard that Harley are quite good as well, but so far I've been unable to find any fault with Transform.

    I lost 3KG in total and my confidence and self esteem have shot through the roof. Completely recommend it for anyone that needs it.

    If you have any questions, PM me. I know I would've found it helpful if I'd had someone to talk to that had had it done recently.

    i went for a consultation to take my 34Fs to a D and got the go ahead from my doctor because it was causing me back pain, however i've decided to wait until im 20 to get it done. go for it and seriously, dont take no for an answer because they say it too easily. if one doctor says no, make an appointment with another. One is bound to take you seriously - after all its not like you want an enlargement to "look more attractive" - you want a reduction because you are in physical pain. good luck! xXx

    I thought DD cups were common. So I would've thought you'd have no trouble getting right sized bras.

    getting DDs is easy. any bigger than that is hard. im not entirely sure why because its not like its *that* uncommon.

    ooh and go to asda girls, they some really pretty ones in DD+ and if your lucky then they can be well stocked. last time i went tho they only had sizes 40+ which is annoying since im a 32 (and shrinking) but the time before they had loads of stuff in my size.
