I am hearing from SO many women who have this same experience, it's a revelation. And I agree about friends who don't want to see past your chest. I have one friend who -- in person -- always comments. Now that I'm working on getting a reduction, she is encouraging me not to because of the potential scarring, and I want to say to her "YOU are part of the reason that I'm doing it!" Sigh.

Thanks for taking the time to read and reaching out.
