A much needed reduction due to constant back pain . I've never felt this good about myself. My tops fit better, no bulging buttons, in fact I had to go buy smaller sizes.

Motivation: I was a 19 year old African American Female with Big Breast that was not potion correctly with my body. I had to wear two bras just to hold them up in the right place.

Went from a 36DDD to a 36D (wanted to be a 36C).
