Have you ever seen non-sexualized photos of normal breasts?
A huge proportion of American women are not happy with their breasts. The media images make them believe the ideal is big and perky breasts with a small nipple and areola.
But, in reality female breasts come in all kinds of sizes and shapes. These breast pictures are here to let you see normal breasts - big, small, sagging, asymmetrical; big areolas or nipples.
In fact, having asymmetrical breasts, where one is bigger than the other, is very very common. Most women have one breast slightly larger than the other. Sagging is very common also, because due to gravity, the breast naturally assumes a hanging position.
Also as we all know, size varies a lot. Some women have practically a flat chest, some have small breasts, some have much bust that the mere weight of them can cause them backaches. according to the bra industry, the most common bra cup size in the US used to be B, but has now become C probably due to the increasing obesity. Of course, the size is not constant but varies with pregnancy, breastfeeding, and during the menstrual cycle.
Many young people growing up never see what normal natural breasts look like, and influenced by the media, think that pert big breasts are ideal. Many end up opting for breast implants to "correct" their breasts — when their breasts were normal all the time!
Normal Breasts Gallery, part 1
These pictures include women of Anglo-/Teutonic European, Semitic, N. Mediterranean, and N. East Asian, Native American, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, Hispanic, and mixed descent who come from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds. The main point is: there is enormous variation in what is normal. Sizes and shapes vary enormously. So don't worry, ladies!

|"Age: 23. I used to be much more uncomfortable with my small breasts when I was younger, but I've
moved on, for the most part. I never really got much negative attention for being small, which helped. It also helps that my sweetheart doesn't mind them at all.
I have scoliosis which causes my left breast to stick out more than the right, almost a full cup size. My condition isn't exactly rare, though, so I'm submitting this for the "normal breasts" gallery."
|"I am 25 years old, have never been pregnant nor breastfed. I've been straddling the overweight/obese line for about ten years now, and in that time my breasts have gone from a 34D to a 38G. I have stretch marks along the sides but they've faded to practically skin tone over the years. My nipples have been pierced, which I think made them bigger. I do wish my breasts were a bit smaller, because the back issues I have before I've even hit 30 are horrible and finding bras that are both attractive and supportive is an expensive quest."||"Hello, I'm an 18 year old woman. I'm overweight, probably considered "morbidly obese. My breasts have stretch marks on the side, and you can see a few of the veins. My nipples are pretty much all areola; the actual nipple only pops up when it's cold etc. I've always been comfortable with my breasts, and in fact I love them quite a bit. They're not perfect, but that's perfectly fine with me."|
|"I'm 24 years old and I've never been pregnant. I've always been skinny. All the women in my family have huge boobs (D and up), so I'm hoping mine will catch up one day! My mother had small boobs when she was my age and hers got big when she was pregnant. I think I'm about a 34A. I like to run, so I appreciate not having to wear a sports bra. I would like to be a bit bigger and I often wear gel inserts in my bra to balance me out, although not in a bikini. I'd never get surgery, because I don't agree with the idea of permanently changing your body to fit in. I'm pretty happy with my body and I'm glad that it's healthy, which I think is the most important thing. My sweetheart is happy with my body too. I think he'd like it if I had slightly bigger boobs, but he's always said he loves my body because it's me."||"18 years old. I lost alot of weight due to bulimia at age 15. I have some stretch marks. I wish my breasts were a bit larger, though!"||"I'm 23 y-o from a southern european country. I have never been pregnant. I usually wear a 34A bra. I've no stretch marks, and I've been almost like that since I was 12, I think (I developed quite fully just after my first period, I was almost 12). I've always been quite athletic. I feel like I'm not well proportioned, I wish I had larger breasts, that would fit nicer on my lower part body. I feel 'large', I'm about 34 - 25.5 - 37.5. Though I like the shape of my breast. Thank you for this site. So a great idea!"|
|"I'm 22, 34B, never been pregnant. During my early teens, I felt self-conscious about my breasts being smaller. From looking at porn, I wished they were rounder and fuller. Now, I like them a lot :)"||"Thank you so much for making this site. I am 22 years old. As I was developing, I remember thinking it was strange that my areolas were larger than my friends, and later, that my breasts were also much saggier. It caused me a lot of stress as a teenager: I wanted to be able to go braless like my girlfriends; I felt like I had missed out on the perky breasts every woman experiences (which I now know is so not true). I am coming to a point now of acceptance of my body. I may not have perfect breasts, but what does that really mean, or matter? I would rather focus on the fact that I am fortunate to not have breast cancer... to appreciate my health."||"I originally found the 007 Breasts website while looking up breast lift surgery. It was so encouraging to see all the women who submitted their pictures and stories. It really helped me to feel that I am not so alone. Unfortunately I still haven't accepted how saggy my breasts are. I cannot afford to get a breast lift and I dislike the idea of not being able to breast feed one day. So whenever I am really down, I pull up your website to remind myself that I am not alone in my breast shape. I'm 29 years old, 5'2" and my weight has been between 115-125 pounds my entire adult life. As long as I can remember, my breasts have been saggy and my nipples have pointed downwards. I've worn 32-34 C-D (USA sizes) in my adult years. Right now it's 32D. I had NEVER seen breasts like mine until I discovered your site. Thanks again!"|
|"I am 20 years old. I started developing breasts pretty early on and was wearing a B cup in 3rd grade, a C cup in 5th grade, and by the time I was in 8th grade I was in a 42DD. That was the last time I got professionally fitted and even though I had lost a couple of pounds after that I continued to wear the size 42DD on the last hook. (No one ever told me anything about proper bra etiquette.) I have always hated having larger breasts. When I was a C cup in the 4th and 5th grade I used to wear a hot jacket throughout the whole
year, always zipped, even during the spring and summer months so that I could hide their size. I was also sexually harassed in the 8th grade. At one point in time, I thought about breast reduction surgery, not for pain, but for aesthetic and personal reasons.
In college I suffered from anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa and lost a large amount of weight. When I was finally measured again at the age of 19 I was wearing a 30H and I am now in a 28F. I would like to squash stereotypes about larger cup sizes and add that after finding the proper bra size, my back does not hurt and I can also fit my F cups into an XS/S top with no problems at all. Although it is hard finding bras with petite band sizes in larger cup sizes, when I do, all of them are very cute albeit expensive.
Now that I have lost weight, they have gotten somewhat saggier and have stretch marks along the top and sides. I have also noticed they have lost a lot of breast tissue at the top and are flatter in this area. I think seeing regular breasts on your site has helped me gain a little more confidence as I no longer feel like the odd one out! Thank you!
When I was going through the gallery, I was actually envious of some of the women with fuller and plumper breasts, even if they were saggy or asymmetrical. I found it funny that some of them hated theirs just as much as I hated mine! It just goes to show how we pick ourselves apart with trivial concerns."
|"I am an eighteen-almost-nineteen year old. I'm tall at 5'11". As a kid, I was a late bloomer, but when I did, I bloomed very quickly, giving me stretchmarks along the outer sides of my breasts (and on my buttocks) Due to a bum knee I don't get the amount of physical activity I should, but due to a fast metabolism and good diet nonetheless remain at a healthy weight. However when I get sick I'll lose a drastic amount of weight (three belt holes in two weeks) which is always a struggle to put back on, this causes a fluctuation in the sizes of my breasts, which is only ever exaggerated when I'm on the rag (they get bigger and very tender). I'm not really sure what size I am, the bras that I own and wear range from a 36B to a 34D. When I did go to a consultation, the woman said that I have B cup breasts, but because of my ribcage size, I'll end up wearing a seemingly larger bra. When I was younger I really used to dislike how far apart my breasts were and the chest acne, however thanks to growing up near hippies and communes, I quickly lost that disposition. Now I enjoy going to topless beaches and have accepted myself for myself."||[The same woman as on the left, three years later.]
"I submitted myself to the normal breasts gallery about three years ago, and I thought it was pretty interesting, especially being as how my body has changed since then. Changed in the breast area specifically without any significant weight gain or loss or change in lifestyle except in growing older and maturing physically. My physical change was one that I regard positively and I think it could be good for those who would like to see changes or growth in their breasts and are still at a fairly young age. I thought I had finished growing in that manner and wouldn't see any drastic changes until pregnancy, but lo and behold I had to go up a full cup size and am now a C. It was a very rapid change, happening in the span of a week and hasn't left, proving it isn't just "period boob" I've hidden my lower arms behind myself as I did before to hide some rather distinguishing tattoos but otherwise, here's a two-parter with three years in between, just to show how much a little time can change things."
|"I am an 18-year old who has never been pregnant. I am self-conscious about my large areola and the asymmetry of my breasts."||"I have just turned 18. My bra size is 34E (USA size) but recently my bra has been too small. My weight is just over 200 pounds so I'm not a small girl. I always have been overweight all through high school. With my pic I will say right and left in the sense that you are looking at me. So my right breast seems to start higher which I thought was weird. It is also a lot flatter. The left one is still droopy but fuller round the top. I have big breasts I would say. They just droop a lot and I have bad stretch marks and you can see the veins I think because I'm pale too. This site has helped me remember that we all come in different shapes and sizes and that's not a bad thing, I still wouldn't say my breasts are beautiful but I don't think they're hideous either, just normal which is good :)"||"I'm 21 years old and my breasts do sag a bit because I am a DD, but I am okay with it. Just as long as its normal. Good site, really good for any woman who might be uncomfortable to ask a physician. Good job!"|
|"At 18 years of age my breasts are a B cup and normally have quite puffy nipples (the areola is about 4cm across and roughly sticks out just under an inch, giving a very pointy look to my breasts). I assumed that these were a rarity but after a bit of web-browsing recently I discovered they aren't as uncommon as I thought."||"I am a 20-year old British Asian. I have always been a bit on the skinny side. I take an oral contraceptive, hoping that it will make my breasts bigger!"||"First I want to say thank you for preparing this web site. I'm a 31-year old Turkish woman. I lost 20 kg of weight between ages 15 and 18. I think that my breasts will get saggier with age, and I havent got erect nipples, but of course I want erect nipples. I worry about pregnancy, after I have a child I think my breasts will be more saggy." Thank you..|
|This lady has lost a lot of weight but is still overweight. Breasts are asymmetrical with stretchmarks. "When I was younger, I was very self conscious. I even went to a plastic surgeon (who end up making me feel worse about my appearance, but I opted not to have corrective surgery). Every boyfriend I have had has been very supportive and loving (in reference to my breasts). I have found in my personal experience that men are just as concerned with their imperfections as we are with our own and they know that REAL women's breast are not what is shown on TV, movies, etc."||A 21-year old; "I have lost some weight and my breasts are sagging."||An 18-year old. "Though I've never been considered obese I was, at one time, rather chubby. I've been battling bulimia for the past year and a half. Just like the rest of my body I've always felt that my breasts are unattractive and far from "normal" because of the way they're positioned, their shape and the size of my nipples. ... I'm in the process of accepting my body and learning to love myself. Thank you for creating this wonderful site. It has really helped me put things in to perspective."|
|"I started developing breast when I was 7. It was always embarrassing for me to go to gym since I would be the only girl whose chest moved. I have never been pregnant and I am currently a size D 36. The breast on my left is smaller than the one on my right. I am not comfortable with my areola size but I am slowly starting to accept my breast for what they are."||"I'm 49, never had a child and I've never breastfed, unfortunately.
When I was 12 I read in a Cosmopolitan that I could tell if my breasts sagged if I lifted one up, put a pencil under it and dropped my boob. If the pencil fell my breasts did not sag. So I did just that. The pencil did not fall; it completely disappeared. I had to lift my breast and take it out.
Many years later in a very different kind of magazine I read that a good breast is a breast that feeds and feels. That still makes me smile. Think about that: A GOOD BREAST IS A BREAST THAT FEEDS AND FEELS!"
