Breast reduction and possible acid reflux relief?

Besides having such large breasts (32G), I also have a lot of discomfort from acid reflux.  I really think it may be triggered by bras that are too tight around my ribcage... READ MORE

Can we talk grams instead of cup size?

My PS will not discuss cup size.  He only talks grams.  Since none of my bras fit, I can only guess that I'm a 32DDD or G (G is what the bra fitter at Nordstrom's... READ MORE
