A rare condition has caused an Aussie woman’s boobs to grow four bra cup sizes, from 100 to 130 centimeters (39 to 51 inches) in just one year - and they won’t stop growing.
Pamelia J, 27, was diagnosed with gigantomastia in March 2022 after seeking medical help for her back, neck and shoulder pain.
A year ago, she realized her chest was growing rapidly as she had outgrown her most worn bra and she was suffering from back pain.
Pamelia's GP suggested her issues were due to the heaviness of her breasts and referred her to a surgeon who diagnosed her with the condition.
Gigantomastia is a very rare condition that causes rapid, excessive breast tissue growth - which caused Pamelia to go from a J cup bra size to an M cup in just eight months.
In January 2022, her bust was 100cm (39 inches) , seven months later she had grown to 114cm (44 inches).
As of January 2023, Pamelia’s chest measures 131cm (51 inches) - causing her massive physical and mental discomfort.
Pamelia, an OnlyFans content creator, said: “It is very uncomfortable - they are so heavy and I can be in a lot of pain.
“At first it was fun and interesting to see how much they were growing, but recently I’ve grown to be uncomfortable and I find myself wishing I had normal-sized breasts.

“I struggle to find clothing to suit my bust and I end up just wearing oversized t-shirts. There are very limited options for bigger-busted women, especially if you don’t want to have your cleavage on show.
“I feel very self-conscious when going out in public. If I wear something that is tight on my chest, I notice women giving me looks.
"I feel like I'm getting dirty looks for having such large breasts so I tend to stay at home - my mental health has suffered from it.”
Pamelia also struggles to find clothing to suit her bust as there are limited options for bigger busted women, especially if they don’t want their cleavage on show.
Gigantomastia can be caused by a range of factors including hormonal changes, medications, and autoimmune diseases, but Pamelia’s cause is currently unknown.
She also suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) so is undergoing testing to see if the two conditions could be related.
Pamelia’s best option is to get a breast reduction, which she is hoping to get at some point in 2023.
She has one son, seven-year-old Pagan J, but she would like to have another baby before the surgery.
There is a chance that her breasts could grow back to their current size after the reduction, but she is looking forward to having some of her discomforts eased.
Pamelia, who lives in Melbourne, Australia, has been using TikTok to share her experience as she hadn’t yet seen people post about gigantomastia.
She hopes sharing her story will encourage people to think twice before passing judgment on her appearance.
Pamelia said: “The online reaction has been surprisingly positive overall and I’ve had a lot of women sharing their experience with getting a reduction.
“Of course, you get the odd rude comment but for the most part, I feel that it's opened people's eyes to what gigantomastia is - it is a very rare condition so most people don't know about it.
“I’d like people to do research before giving an opinion on the way that I look. It is uncomfortable and it is NOT easy to have gigantomastia.”
