  • Works For Teens! Hey, I'm only 18 and I thought I was going to have small boobs forever. After using your book for about 2 weeks, I started seeing results! I then used it for another month and I managed to get my breasts up to a C cup (with padding). I'm so pleased and I'm getting a lot more attention from boys now! Thanks you ☺☺☺ https://t.cn/A6Li7BTH
