A mum was left in constant agony due to her huge boobs – so sold her house and paid for a breast reduction.
Victoria Marsh, 33, had a painful 34H chest that made it difficult to pick up her children.
She wasn't able to find "anything nice" to wear – and even hated how she looked in her wedding dress.

So the buyer, from Nuneaton in the East Midlands, attempted to have surgery on the NHS.
But she claims she "wasn't eligible" for the op, which she ended up getting done privately for £10,000.
She got her breasts reduced by five cup sizes to a 34C – and says it was the "best thing" she has done.
Victoria decided to take the plunge after feeling insecure during her wedding to husband Jon Marsh, a 40-year-old who works in sales.
She said: "I had to buy my wedding dress two sizes bigger to fit my boobs in.
"I felt so self-conscious. I didn't want to be really booby…
"If I had something low cut, I'd look tarty.
"Something tight – it's obscene and loose it looks like I'm wearing a tent."
As well as this, her busty figure made it difficult to carry out everyday tasks.
The mum-of-two – who has an 11-year-old son and six-year-old daughter – added: "It's really hard to pick the children up.
"I just wanted to feel nice.
"I constantly had strained muscles in my neck and infections in skin under boobs. I was constantly putting talc under there."
Victoria went to see her GP in early 2020 to inquire about breast reduction surgery and was invited for an assessment.
She recalled: "I had to have a BMI of 25 or under.
"I starved myself beforehand and I was bang on 25.
"But I got a letter to say I wasn't eligible.
"I wasn't deemed disproportionate enough."
Three years later, and still battling pain on a daily basis, Victoria made the decision to get the surgery done privately.
She finally had the surgery done on July 26, 2023, at Nuffield Health Leicester Hospital – and is chuffed with the results.
The mum added: "I feel lighter. My back doesn't hurt.
"I'm really looking forward to picking up a more active lifestyle.
"I love running but it's been impossible. It's too painful.
"I can do a lot more with the children.
"I can wear the things I want to wear and not feel self-conscious."
