Big Boobs, Big Issues

From the age of 14, when my breasts started to rapidly develop overnight, shopping became more of a monthly chore than an addictive pleasure. I quickly realised I was no longer able to buy clothes for a girl my age as sixteen year olds aren't meant to have boobs as big as your buxom granny's.
