My Big Breasts and MeBBC is airing a fantastic special about life with large breasts called My Big Breasts and Me. This documentary follows the lives of three women who feel uncomfortably defined by their naturally large bust size. One is terrified of having breast reduction surgery but with her breasts causing her chronic back pain she knows it may be her only option. Another hopes that alternative therapies and an exercise regime will downsize her chest; and the third, a 19 year old fashion student, struggles to be taken seriously in a world where she feels only women with ’small boobs’ can look attractive.

Interesting Facts: British women have the biggest breasts in Europe and the average bra size is increasing each year. The average breast size in the UK is between 36C to 34E compared to 10 years ago when it was a much smaller 34B. Nearly 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size and need a proper fitting. Breast reduction operations have gone up a whopping 19% in 2006 compared to 2005. Half of women in the UK would consider plastic surgery while another 36% would consider a breast operation. It is estimated that 26,000 women had a breast enlargement in 2006. Thousands of teenagers – some as young as 13 years old – are now going under the knife in order to reduce their bust size and “fit” in.

The girls who work here at Hiddenfeet found the story of the young fashion student to be especially profound. For years now we have been working hard to show the world that large breasts are beautiful. The happy ending to her story should encourage any large chested woman who watches it to follow their dreams and shed their fears and phobias.

Warning: This BBC documentary does contain topless nudity. The nudity is tasteful however and necessary to explain the stories of these three women. No sexual content is shown but viewer discretion is advised.
