A woman with 34JJ breasts that won’t stop growing has said she couldn’t even feed her baby girl in fear of smothering her.
Elizabeth Catlin, from Swadlincote, Derbs, says that since the age of 10 her boobs haven’t stopped growing.
She says this meant that she couldn’t breastfeed her daughter, Willow, now two, as they might have covered her face and suffocated her.
The 32-year-old is now a JJ in cup size and desperate for breast reduction surgery because she hates her boobs so much.
‘Obviously my boobs grew even bigger during my pregnancy,’ says Elizabeth.
‘I really wanted to breastfeed my daughter because I thought it would be an amazing way to bond, but my boobs were just too big.
‘My breasts are so big that they entirely covered Willow’s whole face and she would have just suffocated underneath them.
‘It was really upsetting because it was something I’d really wanted to try but I just couldn’t.
‘Even now, the size of my boobs affects the stuff I can do with Willow.
‘I have to carry her above my boobs as I can’t carry her on my hips because my boobs are in the way.
‘I can’t even hug her properly, she has to be above my boobs in order to hug me back. And because of the constant and severe back pain caused by the size of my boobs, I can’t really run around after her and play with her.’
When Elizabeth reached her twenties and realised her boobs were still growing she began to struggle.
She couldn’t find bras that would fit her and doubled up on sports bras if she was going to exercise.
Elizabeth says she still gets growing pains in her boobs, and that she thinks they’re still getting bigger even though she is in her thirties.
‘I am still going up in cup sizes,’ she says. ‘I am now bursting out of bras that fit me a couple of months ago.
‘As I have got older, my boobs have got heavier, they hurt more and they are blotchy purple where the strain of the weight has stretched the skin so thin.
‘I hate them. I have a bad back all of the time and the physically hurt to touch which obviously affects my time with my husband, Richard. It feels like shooting electricity.’
Elizabeth says she also has to be very careful when she’s cooking over the stove, she says she has previously burnt them as she got too close to the heat.

‘They just get in the way of everything,’ she says.
‘I also only buy baggy clothes now to hide away because if I wore anything where you can slightly see my …read more
