A 14 year old schoolgirl is refusing to conform with a cherished family tradition, saying she has no interest in having a breast enhancement like her mother and four older sisters.
Britney Marshall works hard at school and dreams of going to university but has perplexed her mother Chantal with her wish not to have her body altered. Mrs Marshall, a 53-year-old mother-of-nine, believes the teenager is going through a “funny phase”.
The mother and her four other girls, of Kirkby in Ashfiield, Notts, boast a total of £50,000 worth of silicone breasts, the Daily Mail reported. Mrs Marshall has had four operations since 1996, which have increased her bra size from 34B to 32GG while daughters Emma, 30, Terri, 27, Tara, 26, and Ripley, 21 have also had enhancements. But Britney said: “I’m too young to be thinking about having a boob job – I just want to work hard at school. I believe a girl should do what she wants and at the moment I don’t want to get a boob job.
“I’ve talked to my mum and sisters about it a lot, and they really love their new boobs and the attention they get from them. In the past I thought I have wanted fake boobs, but then sometimes I look at them and think they look ridiculous.
“I have a thick skin and make up my own mind. I know Mum thinks I will change my mind but right now it’s not important.”
Mrs Marshall said: “Britney is going through a funny phase at the moment and saying she doesn’t want to get her boobs done. But I know my daughters, and I know Britney is no different from the rest.”
She said Britney “idolises” her older sisters and that she would like her to follow in their footsteps. Mrs Marshall, a psychic medium, is now a grandmother but says her breasts make her feel young. She often joins her daughters at nightclubs and loves being mistaken for one of their sisters.
She added: “I really love the fake look of my girls and I know that Britney will go that way when she’s a bit older. I love the idea of us all looking similar and glamorous.”
