Great piece. I had a breast reduction surgery, and I’m very glad I did, but I wonder how I would have felt in/about my body if societal reactions to my boobs hadn’t existed. For instance, did my body ache because of my breasts, or because I was afraid to exercise or even walk briskly in front of people? Or because my posture suffered from trying to hide them? ❤
