Sheridan Larkman, 23, an Australian mother whose breasts haven't stopped growing since she was eight-years-old has opened up on how hard her life has been for the last 15 years.
Sheridan Larkman, from Victoria's Trafalgar now lives with size K breasts, and fears her breasts will keep growing, if she doesn't have surgery soon.
The mum-of-two revealed that she'd had DD-cup breasts since the age of 10, and said her life as a young teenager had been profoundly difficult.
Sheridan said apart from feeling different to other girls her age who were just growing into crop tops when she was already wearing proper bras, she had to deal with cruel remarks and rude comments about her body.
During her teenage years, Sheridan's breasts continued to grow, and by the time she was 16 she was already ordering special H cup bras from overseas.
After speaking to her doctor, she was placed on a waiting list for a publicly-funded breast reduction surgery, but seven years later she is still waiting.
While her breasts have now ballooned to a size K, Sheridan suspects they might actually be larger than that as she said she often spills out the top of her clothes.
In addition, the young mum said her breasts have caused her to develop mild scoliosis, back and shoulder pain.
'I haven't weighed them I think but I think they are are around five or six kilos each. They are almost as heavy as carrying around four newborn babies.'
The mum-of-two, who has so far raised $8,000 towards her surgery through GoFundMe, wrote on her page: 'Please help me fund a private reduction to save my health and so I can enjoy life more actively with my children and hobbies without restriction.'
