A woman was left with a hole in her chest after wearing tight underwire bras.

Lynne McConnell, 51, developed a painful cyst in her chest, where the midpoint of the bra sits on her chest, after 15 years of wearing close-fitting bras which she chose after being measured at a shop.

McConnell sought help when the lump grew into a 1.6×1.6 inch rock-hard mass.

The Scottish woman said: "There is a lack of awareness about these types of bras.

"Something has clearly gone wrong and all I want is for people to learn from what has happened. I don't want anyone else to go through what I have. It really affected my self-esteem for a long time.

"I couldn't wear a bra for weeks and I try to take pride in how I look. It wasn't nice at all."
