A university student whose 32HH boobs cause her 'unbearable' back pain launches a fundraiser to pay for a breast reduction.
For many women, having bigger breasts is a dream come true. But for Aminata Daboh, it's the opposite.
The 20-year-old law and business management student said her 32HH breasts cause her a 'lot of emotional distress and physical pain.'
In a lengthy plea, Aminata explained how she struggles to live a normal life due to her large breasts.
She also revealed that one of her ex-boyfriend's dad's even questioned whether she was a virgin.
And while at school, people compared her to porn stars and dubbed her 'the girl with the big breasts.'
She added that she initially tried to get the reduction paid for on the NHS. However, she became discouraged after a male GP told her it was 'very rare' to get the operation publicly funded.
In an interview, she said:
"When I started to feel self-conscious, I thought I've got to do something about this."
"People used to sexualize me at school. People would say, 'your boobs are really big,' and it would make me feel really self-conscious about my body."
"Then when I was 15 or 16, I was in a relationship and the boy I was with said his dad once said 'is your girlfriend a virgin, her boobs are really big.'"
"At the time, I brushed it off. But as I got older, I was like no one should be able to make those assumptions about my body."
"At secondary school, people used to shout at me. They would say your boobs remind me of this porn character."
"If people were going to refer to me, they would say 'Aminata, the girl with the big breasts.'"
Writing on her GoFundMe page, she explained:
"From age 6, my breasts started growing at a really rapid rate. And by the time I was in year 10, I was a 32JJ, which is incredibly big for a 5'2, 14/15-year-old in secondary school."
"I was always slightly insecure about my body, but as I got older, it became worse."
"Eventually, a family member introduced me to the prospect of breast reduction surgery."
Aminata also explained that having the operation would fix her back problems.
"The pain is unbearable now."
"Going private and spending thousands of pounds is not something anyone wants to do, but this type of pain and discomfort is not bearable."
"Bras dig into my torso and shoulders. I can't sleep on my front because it's uncomfortable."
"When younger, I used to be energetic and did lots of sports, but I can't do that now."
"I can't find a bra that supports me when I jump."
Aminata added that the surgery is her 'last option.'
So far, she has raised more than £2,393 ($3,244) for her surgery at the time of writing.
