If you learn something from me…

Because it meant I swapped back and forth between the outfits, adjusting the look and (sorry boys) adjusting my boobs into each bra. It was then, mid-change number 3 or 4, that I found the lump. Had I not done that, how long would it have been until I found it and then what would the delay have meant?
