Berlin, Nov 28 : Having extremely big breasts is not an illness, a court in the German state of Hessen has ruled, which further added that an operation to reduce the size of large twin assets should not be covered by insurance companies.
The ruling follows a case in which a regional court in the western city of Darmstadt had rejected the claim of a 37-year-old woman who had been advised by several doctors to have breast reduction surgery to alleviate back pain and the social stigma she suffered, reports Blid.com.
However, her insurance company didn't see it as a necessity and therefore refused to cover the costs of the operation.
It claimed she was suffering from back problems because she was overweight and that her physical discomforts would be reduced if she trimmed down weight and built some muscle up.
Then, the woman took the matter to court.
However, the woman's efforts roved futile as the court agreed with the insurance company and the big-breasted woman lost her case.
