But if you don't it doesn't mean you should worry, you are likely just very fortunate! ...Read more

My guess is that: You may have gained some weight and the bra itself may be the cause. In this way the breasts can get larger. First line treatment for breat pain is the birth control pill but if there are lines in the skin from the bra, may need an adjustment. Good luck. ...Read more
