This, my friends, is one of my new bras. I cried when I opened the package from a thoughtful PR and discovered a bag of the prettiest, laciest, non-parachute harness bras I had ever seen. I never thought I could be the girl who would wear pretty bras. Everything in my underwear drawer had enough underwire in it to set off an airport metal detector, and you could comfortably house a family of hamsters in each cup.
I started 2015 as a 32JJ, and ended it as a neat 34D. The operation was something I had considered for years, lightly since my late twenties, and seriously for the past five years or so. A year down the line from the operation I can truthfully say that it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
My friends over at The Pool published the story of the journey towards my decision in April, almost a year to the day of the surgery, and you can read the piece here.
Meanwhile, here at LLG, over the next week or so, we will be running a series of wellness stories – call it Week of Wellness, stemming from this decision, from my no-holds-barred guide to breast reduction surgery (4000 words!), to reviews of health-centred resorts, boot camps, dermatologists, and post-exercise treatments.
I’m kicking off with the above mentioned surgery guide, and you can click through to read it here.
Bra, above, a gift from Wacoal, and available here.
