A woman with boobs that weigh two stone is desperate for a breast reduction, claiming they have left her housebound in crippling pain and are the reason her relationships have failed.
Lyndsey Nurse, 35, from Highworth, Swindon, has always had a bigger bust but claims her 36L breasts won’t stop growing and they now weigh the same as a toddler – the equivalent of 14 bags of sugar.
She told how she used to run her own business but had to quit two years ago after her boobs began causing her chronic back pain.
Despite only being a size 14, Lyndsey has to buy size 22 clothing in order to fit her bust and cleans underneath her boobs three times a day in order to prevent infection.

She also makes her own bras out of hand towels because she struggles to find any inexpensive ones that are big enough.
Lyndsey believes her huge bust is the reason all her relationships have failed, as she refuses to take off her top in front of any partner out of fear of them finding it ‘disgusting’.
She claims she is unable to receive the breast reduction on the NHS, so has turned to raising the money herself via an online fundraiser.
‘My boobs just keep growing; every year I’m a different cup size and I don’t understand why they won’t stop growing,’ she explained.

‘When I walk, my posture is bent because I am carrying two stone on my chest and that means my shoulders and back are continuously painful.
‘I haven’t been able to work for two years and I’m just deflated and fed up. I’m having to wash under my breasts three times a day and make sure I put plenty of talcum powder under there; I can’t run or do any exercise.
‘I can’t find bras that fit me properly and I can’t afford to buy the specialist ones so I spend most of the day with a towel under them to prevent them from sweating.
‘As it’s gone on, I just feel disgusting. I feel like I have two big tumours on me. Any relationship I’ve had, my partner hasn’t seen them because they don’t look sexy. I feel so unfeminine.

‘Doctors don’t understand why I need a breast reduction but I’m desperate.’
Lyndsey has always had a fuller bust compared to other people and was desperate for a breast reduction from when she was in her twenties.
‘When I was in year 10 at school, I was a double D,’ she recalled. ‘It’s been an issue most of life but it’s only in the last year that I’ve noticed them growing even more.
‘I used to be a size 8 when I was in my twenties so the boobs would cause back pain even then when I was an E cup. Now, I’m a 36L and they seem to be continuing to grow’.
Despite struggling to carry the weight, Lyndsey finds it difficult to find bras that fit and offer the support she needs.
Lyndsey said bras that accommodate her bust can cost £50 upwards and she can’t afford that so she makes her own using a hand towel
Lyndsey says she isn’t entitled to a free breast reduction and wants the NHS to take her seriously and realise the effect her breasts have had on her life
As a result of her large bust which gives her crippling back pain, Lyndsey hasn’t been able to work for two years and feels ‘deflated and fed up’
She said: ‘I have one bra from Marks and Spencer but that’s the biggest size that they do and it doesn’t fit me – it’s a size smaller than what I need.
‘The bras can cost £50 upwards and I just can’t afford that so I have to make my own make-shift bra using a hand towel.
‘I just want the NHS to take me seriously and realise the effect this has had on my life. If I get a breast reduction, it might prevent more pain from happening but I think a lot of the damage has already been caused.
‘I just want them gone – I don’t mind having nothing as long as I don’t have to carry this weight around anymore’.
