One of the biggest news stories of 2015 was arguably Caitlyn Jenner's transition from male to female, but the 66-year-old admits that her first attempt to change genders began in the 1980s!
“[I] started on hormones... I was a good 36B [cup size], and I loved them,” the former Olympian revealed while speaking at the AOL Makers Conference on Feb. 2. “I thought, ‘This is fabulous!’ My mission at that point was to transition before I was 40. Got to 39, I just couldn’t go any farther.”

Meeting future wife Kris Jenner derailed Caitlyn's original plans. “We hit it off from day one,” the reality star shared. “I was very honest with her — I had to be, I was a 36B!"
The gold medalist ultimately chose a life with the momager over her desire to transition. "I made this decision to kind of move on in my life — Kris and I together, and this family. OK, I’ve got to get rid of these gender things and get off hormones and this and that,” she recalled.
Caitlyn had her boobs removed and set up a series of guidelines regarding her secret identity. “The rules with Kris and I: don’t dress up, certainly around the house. If you really need to do that, when you’re on the road, take stuff and do that. So I did that for years,” she confessed.
