A mother-of-two has spoken about how her K-cup breasts are ruining her life – and she’s desperate to have them reduced.
Sheridan Larkman, 23, from Victoria, says her breasts started to develop when she was aged just eight, and by age 10 she was a DD-cup.
‘While the other girls in my class wore pretty crop tops under their uniforms, I needed adult bras,’ Sheridan tells that’s life!, explaining that she was bullied as a result.
But her chest did not stop growing. By the time she was in high school, Sheridan says she wore an F-cup.
‘Self-conscious, I’d wear a T-shirt over my swimming costume and have to restrain them so I could play football and dance,’ she says, revealing that she often resorted to wearing two bras and a crop top underneath her clothes.
While she went to see a doctor, Sheridan was told it was ‘all part of being a woman’.
‘People often gawked at me in the street and men shouted rude comments,’ she explains.
‘Clothes shopping was a nightmare. If I bought a size-10 to fit my waist, my boobs would spill out over the top.’
When Sheridan fell pregnant at 18 she said her breasts grew further.
‘By the time our daughter, Alaska, was born, I knew I needed a double J bra,’ she says, and after welcoming a second child she’s now a K-cup and on the waiting list for a breast reduction.
‘If I stand up straight, the pressure on my lower back and neck is agony, so I constantly lean forward,’ she says, explaining that private surgery is just too costly.
‘Going abroad would be cheaper, but I won’t put myself at risk,’ the mum-of-two adds. ‘More than anything, I want to be able to run around with my girls. Instead, I’m in constant pain. No-one should have to live like that. ’
