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.

As a heterosexual male... I can truely relate to this because I have a massive penis. Females endlessly wanting to see it or more. Pants don't fit... and I quit trying to fly to destinations.

I'm a KK and find that a good fitting bra gives great support and I can honestly say that I don't get back pain. It can be annoying having people stare at my boobs and I've lost count of the number of times I get taken aside at airports because they think I'm smuggling drugs or something in my bra. On one occasion in Tunisia the two security men said I had to wait until they could find a female to check me out. After 30 minutes I got fed up waiting and just took my top and bra off and said "do these look like drugs?" The two guys just stood staring open mouthed. Then one of them said "I could get high on them."

It's me.
It's me.

I HATE my large breasts for multiple reasons. Number one, they are incredibly uncomfortable regardless if I am wearing a well fitted bra or not. I have constant back pain because of them, my back is starting to curve forward and I will probably be hunchbacked by the time I am old. Boob sweat is horrendous. My boobs are constantly sweaty and my bras are completely soaked by the end of the day (nasty.) Also, as an infertile woman..my large breasts are a CONSTANT reminder of what my body failed to do. My breasts will never be used to feed a baby...so they are basically pointless lumps of fat hanging off my chest causing me constant pain. I could care less about being sexy to men. I have a husband who loves me and am tired of being considered a sex object to strange men even though I keep myself covered up, it is impossible to hide these large lumps.

Hi everyone I have always had large breasts and am extremely proud of them as they are a part of me I am 55 And large breasts run in my family and go back centuries I am happy in myself and have learnt to live with them as I would my leg or my arm Its true that bigger women get a lot more attention but I do think that it is the perception of men that concentrates on the idea that big breasts are more fanciable but that is just a matter of opinion as some men preferes small breasts .I have breast fed 4 children and I know that I gave them a strong start in life regarding fighting against diseases and bacteria. The breasts are for breast feeding and anyone who is jealouse is naive and ignorant.

Some ridiculous comments here by men who are utterly clueless as to the reality of over-sized breasts. As a person who has breasts on the larger side (for my frame) but not massively oversized, I have had a small taste of the problems that can happen, and I am extremely glad my breasts aren't any larger than they are.

Not everything is about sex. If you're a person with a large breast to frame ratio shopping is a nightmare. Nearly all the clothes in stores that are in fashion and look nice on everyone else either make you look indecent or don't fit. There are many types of clothes that are not even indecent, styles that you might really like, but you can never wear them because you look like you're deliberately dressing in a revealing way. I can waste hours in a shopping centre just trying to find some clothes and end up buying nothing. Bras are expensive and difficult to find.

Sport is the worst. I am so lucky that my boobs aren't any larger than they are - with a high impact sports bra I can play sport without pain (without a bra I have to actually hold my breasts in my hands even just if I jog a short distance so as not to have pain), but for the poor ladies in this video with really large breasts sport is not an option. Imagine never being able to run, or swim, or play any kind of competitive sport. As a highly active person this would be my worst nightmare.

In the high intensity sport I do, and in running, it's normal for girls to exercise in just sports bras and tights/shorts because you get so hot, especially living in a warm climate, but I always have to wear tshirts (and feel hot and uncomfortable) because if I don't I feel like I'm being provocative even though I'd be wearing the same thing as everyone else.

Again, I am pretty lucky that it's not anywhere near as bad as what these ladies have, but the more minor annoyances I have experienced makes me highly sympathetic to their situation.

Why in the world would you want to reduce your breast size? I am married to my wife with small regular breasts, and I am truly disappointed emotionally, sexually and mentally. I truly deeply wish that I could meet you in the next life. I would marry you in a heart beat.

Just a tip I got from a fashion TV show: if you have a large chest, in order to get clothes that fit, get things that fit across the bust. This will often mean the garment is too large at the waist or torso; have a tailor take those in. It's always easier to take away fabric than add it, and you won't look like you're squeezing into clothing that's too tight.

I need to move to the UK. Those numbers didn't include breast enlargement I hope, that is annoying. They can't breast feed and their children will not inherit large bust sizes- hence I'm not for breast enlargement of fertile women. I wouldn't date a fertile woman with synthetically enlarged breasts though I wouldn't actually date the vast majority of women anyways (mostly for intellectual reasons not looks)

I can see what it would be like to have a permanent erection. Not a good comparison I know, but I can see how it would be easy to take a negative point of view from the situation. It takes love, and self acceptance to overcome any annoyance that intractable. Perhaps women wish their breasts would shrink unless sexually stimulated. From any point of view it's good to talk about it.

Big breasted should get a clue, if you don't like it, though! Some goes for the men who has bigger or smaller penises. I'm well aware that it's a pain to get to buy more expensive bra's in order to secure a well adjusted fit, but it's the same as being too small, too thin, too long... It's what you make of it. That you've been ridiculed throughout your life doesn't mean that big breasts are the thing that should make you go and sit in your little corner and cry. It means that you had a very bad upbringing with the wrong kind of people and couldn't deal with that. Funny that so many label the fact that men only can hold their conversation when being surprised by a large chest...seriously?!?! Men will stare at ANY type of breast, regardless the shape, so that assumption is BS if you'd ask me. It's okay to keep writing about it that it's not fair, but we have about the same order of groups who claim that it's not fair having small breasts.... seriously.... women... oh wait, I'm actually one myself, a depressed turned happy 34F wearing mother of 2. No victims and whining anymore, just accepting this is what genetics gave you.

We certainly live in a sad and judgmental world. I am a man who never judges anyone based on looks or anything else. I've been humiliated for my barely average member by both men and women and I know the sting and how much it hurts to be singled out. Be strong ladies as I am a man who accepts you for who you are.

I feel so normal when I see Jodie and her 28K breasts. I'm 5'6" & weigh 140 lbs and am a size 10, but I am a size 16 up top due to the fact that I wear a 34JJ some times? a K cup depending on the make of the bra. I should have been on this show lol. All the things that these girls have experienced in life due to having large breasts, I too have encountered the same in my lifetime. Great documentary!!!

Im 15.. 5"2 and weigh just under 8stone. Im a size 6 at the bottom and a 14 on top as im a 32F. You can be skinny and have large boobs.. And the give you back pains.. Men dont have to go through the pain so you wouldnt understand? Yet even when i totally cover myself up i still get stared at, tooted at and all the rest. Its tireing and im already thinking of having them reduced as it put me down as i always seem to feel guys like me for the curves and the breasts i have. It get to be the same old story every day.

Oh and for people who claim to be slim, you can be small, and have a small looking figure, which is not the same as having a low body fat percentage. These people usually have the barrell look, no real curves just thick looking.

A couple of weeks ago a women got visually offended by checking out her boobs, that were on full display because she had chosen a low cut, tight top and ill-fitting bra. I'm a man and don't walk about with a low cut top on and clothes that are a size too small for me... many women choose clothes that show off their breasts then complain with men (other than the ones they fancy) look at them. There is a strong "stop looking at my tits" attitude when that's exactly the reaction they obviously wanted from the choices they make. Personally I just look if that's the clothing choice a women makes... especially in the summer.

Reality check here Itanimulli. Breasts aren't "fat". They're "glands", that have varying amounts of fatty tissue, laced throughout the other types of tissues, that constitute the entire Mammary gland. But, they most certainly are NOT solely made up of "fat". Most of their size/shape and the ratio of these tissues, is genetically determined. They can increase (or decrease) in size, as a woman's weight fluctuates, but, other factors can determine breast size. Some women's breasts(the mammary glands, with their several types of tissue) increased dramatically in size, when they used the early, estrogen heavy, birth control pills. But, as matter of fact, a small, slim woman can have very large breasts, or, a fat woman can be small breasted. Before you question the integrity of Kelsey's comments, you may want to not embarrass yourself, by making incorrect, broad sweeping generalizations, based solely on your "first hand" experience and limited education on the subject. Kelsey certainly knows the composition of her own body, no matter what your ill-informed dogma requires you to say.

sometimes life is ironic, there are women who are not naturally endowed and willing to pay for costly breast augmentation price and then there is women that possessed breast that causes them trouble that's why they opt for another surgery called breast augmentation.

I think what Chole Lafferty was say is "when she was younger, she weighted 7 and 1/2 stone" not that she was seven years old! She missed a comma so what?
It very much is possible to be skinny, healthy and to have large breasts. I run every day, I eat healthy, and I play volleyball three times a week. I am a 30H bra size. Yes breasts are made of fat tissue but also muscle. Breast size is biologically determined by life style and GENETICS! Just because a woman has big breast does not mean she is not healthy! Calling women with big breasts fat (not skinny as you put it) is extremely rude and insensitive, I think you need to watch the documentary again, and try having some empathy because we all have different body types and DO look normal.
I'm sure if you went to a professional psychologist you would be surprised at how much of an ass you are.

I think the clothing industry is partly to blame for this and many other problems. There are tons of women with large breasts, and the clothing manufacturers really ought to be mass producing bra's for women with large breasts, and making them widely available.

Having large breasts has been a total curse for me. I grew up with total shame over my body and never felt confident. I have struggled with stares, comments and attitudes. I have women, women-mind-you, ask me point blank if they were real. That is just shi**y.

Its really upsetting to see other women going on about having to 'convince the world that big breasts are beautiful'. Is this a joke? I am a woman with small breasts and I feel like a fake, like I'm not even a real woman. Women with big breasts know that they are beautiful, they cannot be immune to the male attention their breasts recieve and the satisfaction of their partners. As a woman with small breasts you will always feel inadequate, as though you are not really a woman, or as though you are a sorry excuse for a woman. You will have to go through the pain of knowing however your partner tries to tell you he loves you they way you are, that secretly he's wishing you had large breasts like those that you complain about.
You should appreciate what you've got and stop whinging.
I'd do anything to have lovely natural large breasts and knowing that my partner does not wish for anything more.
What planet have the documentary makers been living on where big breasts are not totally appreciated.
Wake up.

I love big breasts,but I have never felt the need to tease girls at school or shout moronic things at girls in the street.
There was a guy at school who always teased girls and made them feel uncomfortable and it turned out he was actually gay,but felt he couldn't tell anyone.Immature boys or closet homosexual men might have a problem with large breasted women,but no real man who truly loves women could ever object to a natural part of a women's body,no matter what size they are.

All three of these girls are overweight. Breasts are mostly fat.

If they lost the weight they'd be healthier, and would no longer have "too big breasts". Double win.

But then, lazy people prefer surgery.

Girls I want you to realize something. Even though you might hate your large breasts now because its socially awkward, your going to love them later on down the road. I am a 52 year old single grandmother. My husband died a few years back and now that I have gotten back into the dating scene, men love that I have a large chest. I have also noticed that younger men from the ages of 22 through 35 are more attracted to women with a larger bust size. I am a 42 E and I love the fact that I am looked at when I walk by a man. It gives me confidence and makes me feel wonderful and beautiful inside. Don't be ashamed of what you were blessed with girls. Just rock what your mama gave you :)
