A WOMAN with size 38J breasts has to wear two bras to cope with the pain.
Shade Newberry, 26, from Bristol, says she has become “addicted” to painkillers and is always in a “zombie like state”.
Shade's huge boobs are even jeopardising her career as a hair loss technician in a salon as she had to cut her hours and work part-time only because of the sheer back pain her breasts have caused.
Despite visiting her GP on numerous occasions, it appears the NHS will not fund her breast reduction surgery.
She is desperately trying to crowdfund in order to go private.
Shade said: "My boobs have just taken over my whole life. It feels like I am wasting my young life.
"I'm still only young and I feel like I need to cover and hide in baggy clothes.
"It feels like I'm a middle-aged woman in frumpy clothes.
"I'm wasting my young life hating my body and being a social recluse because I don't want to go out and have constant stares.
"I hate the way my boobs make me look.
"My dress size should be a size 16, but because of my chest, I have to buy size 24 for my top half.
"Even when my weight fluctuates, my breast size never changes.
"Finding bras is also a hard task and they're so much more expensive too. They usually cost me about £42 and they don't seem to last very long because of the weight of my boobs."
Shades boobs began growing at an early age and were sized DD before she made it to secondary school.
She said: "It all started when I was in my final year of primary school and a girl pointed out to me that I needed a bra.
"So my dad took me to get a training bra and I was told that I would need a proper bra.
"By the time I got to secondary school, I was a DD cup.
"They continued to rapidly grow over my teenage years and I was a G cup by the time I turned 17."
Shade recalls it being awful as a teenager with big boobs.
Shade added: "No matter what I wear people stare at my chest or make comments.
"If I ever wear anything that's low cut people accuse me of getting my boobs out for attention. It's so unfair.
Shade has had to cut her hours at work, at a hair transplant clinic for women with hair loss.
She said: "It got to a point where I couldn't cope working full time because I was in constant pain.
"I'd always end up in tears and have to go home because of the back pain.
"So in the end I had to become part-time because my boobs have been causing me so much pain I can't stand and work for very long.
"Which is extra stress in itself because I am shorter on money now.”
Shade has been wearing two bras recently for more support, however, it makes her boobs very hot.
She says that she has sores underneath her boobs from where she sweats.
Shade added: "I have grooves in my shoulders from where my bras dig in and my skin is always red raw and burning.
"It's just constant discomfort.
"It feels like my boobs have taken away my social life and they are going to take away my career if I can't ever get a reduction.
"I once went to Thorpe Park and had to get off of two rides before they started because the bars were so tight on my chest.
"It sometimes gets to a point where I think I can't go on like this because it's taken over my whole life.
"I can't see a future without a breast reduction because then I would be able to live my best life and wear whatever I want."
Shade has started a GoFundMe page to get a private breast reduction, with a target of £8,300.
She wrote on the page: “I am 25 and have been in constant pain with my back for almost 10 years now, I have continuously pleaded with GP’s, been put on a lot of different painkillers which are highly addictive and leave me in a zombie like state.
“This is not a healthy way to live, the painkillers simply allow me to get through my day without being crippled by my back ache, but not taking it away.
“It has become such an issue over time that my mental health is deteriorating and to have a reduction would make an unbelievable impact on my day to day life.
“The money raised will pay for a private breast reduction procedure. It will also allow for my recovery time, which is recommended at least 6 weeks, until I’ll be able to return to work. We do not receive company sick pay.”
