While many women spend years wishing for larger breasts, there are just as many women who spend the same amount of time wishing their breasts would be smaller. After all, large breasts may not work for everyone’s lifestyle and may cause very real discomfort that impacts your quality of life. Here are the top five signs that you may need breast reduction surgery:
Bras Don’t Support You
If you have larger breasts, then you know just how difficult it can be to find a bra that offers the level of support you need. Additionally, you may find that your bra strap leaves grooves in your shoulders, which can be a painful reminder of just how unsupported your breasts really are. And even when you do find a good bra, it tends to come with a high price tag–which can make bra shopping excruciating, even for the keenest shopper.
You Experience Physical Pain
Large breasts can cause headaches, shoulder aches, neck pain and even back pain. This amount of chronic pain can make day-to-day activities feel nearly impossible, seriously decreasing your quality of life.
Exercise is Difficult
Given the difficulty of finding bras with proper support, exercise can cause very serious pain. And even with a sports bra that holds everything in place, you may still find that your breasts limit your range of movement, get in the way during certain activities, and generally make working out a chore.
Finding Clothing is a Challenge
In many cases, clothing simply is not made to accommodate women with larger breasts. This can mean that shopping for everything from casual tops to special occasion attire takes even longer than it does for those with smaller breasts. What’s more, you may find yourself needing to practice more patience and trust that you’ll eventually be able to find what you are seeking.
You Are Unhappy With Your Appearance
At the end of the day, if your large breasts make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin, then that is a strong sign you may need breast reduction surgery. After all, you only have one body and you should enjoy it! And since this procedure is accessible for a wide range of women, there is no reason why you should be unhappy with your appearance any longer.
