This recent article featured four amazing women who live with significant changes to their body.
Christina Earle writes: “Whether it’s wobbly thighs, small boobs or a mummy tummy, many women don’t like how they look. But spare a thought for these four girls. Each has a body secret that would hit most people’s confidence — but they don’t let it get in the way of living their lives to the full.”
Kim Feast has been a member of Flat Friends since June 2015 and was interviewed and photographed for the piece. She follows in the footsteps of other Flat Friends who contributed to a Sun feature in October 2015.

KIM FEAST, 32, needed a double mastectomy in 2014. She has two sons, Jack, five, and two-year-old Charlie, and lives with husband David, 37, an electrician, in Farnborough, Hants.
She says: “I had stage three breast cancer in my right breast and had a mastectomy. Then three months later doctors found a cancerous lump in my other boob and I needed to lose it too. I decided not to have a reconstruction as I couldn’t cope with any more operations.
I’ve been inspired by Flat Friends, an organisation set up to help women who have opted to not have reconstructions after mastectomies. They’ve made me realise I’m not on my own and that it is possible to live a happy, healthy life without boobs.
I am pleased to still be here for my family and my scars remind me how precious life is.”
