THE ONE WAIT whose 36JJ boobs hit the glass and took her breath away while bending over is raising funds to reduce them to DD-cups.
Despite severe back pain and other problems, 21-year-old Carly Smart was refused to join the NHS because she did not meet its criteria.
She is trying to raise the £1,500 deposit needed for a private operation.
Carly, of Wellingborough, Northants, said: “It is physically painful and affects my daily life.
“If I hadn’t joked about it, I would have cried.
“I just don’t want to be in my body anymore.
“I don’t feel like one person, I feel like I have to carry these two with me.
“I hate the idea of asking for money for something I want, but it’s also a need.”
She claims she has visited her local GP to try to shrink her breasts to no avail, as she has been refused funding by NHS England.

Carly says her large busts interfere with her daily life, including at work, where they have become a “joke” by spilling glasses and ‘suffocating’ her when she crouched down.
The 5ft 6in bride-to-be said she has suffered from rashes that have turned her skin “red like a lobster” and “smells like rotting meat” as well as severe back pain that has plagued her fear it will “flip like a match”.
Now, Carly, whose dream of shrinking her breasts before walking down the aisle this August has disappeared, is fundraising with a £1,500 deposit to secure the £7,000 procedure.
Northamptonshire CCG says its Breast Reduction Policy is one of a number of Pre-Approval Policies that have been put in place to make the best use of NHS funds and ensure they can effectively manage their limited resources. .
‘I JUST ALWAYS OFF MY SHOCKET’
Carly said: “There was one time I didn’t even know my nipples were literally touching the wall of my kettle. I was like ‘oh my god’ so I almost burned my nipples at that point. .
“I didn’t even realize it was touching it until it was 20 seconds and I was like ‘oh no, we’re gone’.
“When I held the trays I had to raise them a little bit higher because the amount of glass I spilled onto my breasts was ridiculous.
“Whenever I’m in a bar and stoop to buy more, I really just get slapped in the face. I feel like I’m strangled by my breasts when I’m trying to grab something.
“It’s hard to say this seriously because if I didn’t joke, I would cry.
Carly says she first went to doctors at the age of 17 to find a way to shrink her breasts.
She has been told that she must meet the minimum 25 BMI criteria.
Carly said: “At one point I went to the doctor and explained it to them and the disgusting thing was, she turned to me and said ‘maybe we’re going to give you a boost of antidepressants so you don’t have to. think about it a lot’.
“I was like ‘what? Are you taking my antidepressants so I don’t think about my boobs as much?’ That’s the funniest thing I’ve ever heard.
“I think that’s the point where I said ‘yeah, I’m not getting any help here’.
“One of the reasons was because of my BMI. I explained that my breasts were quite heavy and asked why that was still included in the BMI and they said it was just true, they couldn’t. change specifications.
“Another thing is the fact it’s an expensive surgery, it’s very unlikely that I’ll get it and they basically can’t afford it.
“All I was told was ‘lose weight, lose weight, lose weight’.
“I’ve been to a surgeon before and it was a really bad experience because he looked at me and said like ‘your BMI is really high so the NHS won’t take you and neither will I. take you’ and basically just turn to me and say ‘oh, you’re fat’.
“He basically wanted me down to a ridiculous size.
“My BMI is currently 32 and he wants me to be 25 like a reasonable weight, but I think I’ll break my back if I’m that skinny with my breasts. I don’t think I have my body. will be able to deal with it, it’s hard to deal with as it is.”
Carly claims she suffered from an eating disorder during her teens and that she hasn’t lost weight because she knows it’s a ‘slippery slope’ to do so that leads to bad body thinking .
‘IMPACT ON MY DAILY LIFE’
Carly said: “Even though I’m only 21 years old, I feel like I’ve lost too much of my youth because I can’t move like other people, it affects my daily life a lot.
“It was physically painful. Under my breasts I had red rashes and they were really painful. It was to the point that my skin was as red as a lobster.
“It’s so itchy and painful. The only other way I can explain it is if you have chickenpox all over your chest. I find that disgusting but it smells like rotten meat.
“They’re just like that to me. It’s really hard, I really can’t control where they are. Wearing a bra is the best way, but it’s also painful.
“My back pain is ridiculous at the point.”
Carly wears size 20-24 because her bust size is too tight or leaves her ‘drowning’ in fabric – and she feels like an ‘absolute tent’ in baggy t-shirts .
Carly said: “I felt like I couldn’t control my body. I didn’t feel like one person, I felt like I had to carry these two lumps with me. It was weird. It was very a lot of.
“It’s hard because depending on what I wear depends on the appearance of my body. I can have a lot of different body types from what I wear.
“It’s horrible because sometimes I don’t feel comfortable wearing anything but obviously I have to wear something and don’t want to be naked. I just don’t want to be in my body anymore.
“My partner is really supportive. Obviously, how much he loves me and likes my body but he also sees the hardships I have to go through.
“When I had a particularly bad day, he went away for a while and then came back and said ‘yes this is my bank account and I opened this savings account to shrink my breasts and we I will do this.’.
“I literally cried.”
