She’s so… broken.
A Utah woman said an injury she sustained in a snowboarding accident as a teenager — for which she did not seek treatment — caused her to have an unusual “third breast.”
Kat Kamalani posted a video on TikTok, she details the experience as part of her ongoing body awareness journey.
The mother-of-two told her one million followers on the social media app that it took years after the accident for her to finally feel comfortable in a bikini. The sun reported.
But there was a good reason for her decision to keep it a secret for so long, according to the host of the Well done with Kat Podcast revealed.
“Back in high school, I was on a competitive dance team,” Kamalani explained in the video, pointing to the mysterious mound just below her left breast.
To be on the team, she had to promise not to play any other sport to prevent injury.
“You sign a contract that basically says you can’t do other sports or do dangerous activities that could hurt you,” she said.
“The reason for this is that we dance for the state and region all year round. It’s intense and that’s why they don’t want to risk you getting hurt.”
But Kamalani’s love of snowboarding drew her to the slopes – despite the promise she made to the dance team.
“I’m just obsessed with snowboarding. I secretly snowboarded and there was a rail in the park that you could ride,” she explained.
“I decided to try something new and do a new trick. And I fell on my stomach first and completely fractured my rib,” she added.
She didn’t want to lose her place on the dance team, so she suffered in silence and acted like nothing ever happened.
“I was in the worst pain ever,” she said, adding that she couldn’t move or breathe.
“I was so scared that I would be taken out and not be able to dance. So I didn’t tell my parents, my coaches, and that’s how I was able to dance,” she recalls.
Dancing through the pain might keep her on the team, but it prevented her body from properly healing.
“And not healing properly. I kept dancing anyway. So now all I have is this third breast,” she lamented.
“This is my first year of actually wearing bikinis because I’m so conscious of it,” she said at the time.
She told her followers that body consciousness comes from within and that unrealistic standards of beauty come from outside sources that don’t matter.
“But I just realized that if you don’t like your body and you hate it, it’s someone else or society telling you that your body should look a certain way and you believe it,” she said.
She said she doesn’t need a flat stomach and said her shape makes her unique.
Kamalani’s followers expressed their support for the mother and some even said they share a similar body shape.
“I’m not trying to be weird, but does it make your stomach look more defined?!? As if you had strong abs!!! You are perfect!!!” wrote one.
“I got compliments on my third child,” said another.
“I did and was never injured,” said a third.
