Normal Breasts Gallery, part 10
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!

|"I am 18 years old. I currently wear 38DDD size breasts. I developed them when I was in about 8th grade. I used to have very bad, red, angry, humiliating stretchmarks on my breasts, now they have faded into white ones, still noticeable, but not as much. I also have stretch marks on my hips; those are red and very embarrassing. My left breast is slightly bigger, and they have been sagging for about a year. When I turn to the side, they have a downward slope. I feel so old already at 18, it is very embarrassing, and without underwire I am nothing. I came across this website because I'm starting to be sexually active and am insecure about my breasts. Seeing these photos has inspired me to publish my own. Thank you for this website. I'm starting to be more appreciative, and I hope my story helps others :)"||"Age 19. My breasts are a bit on the small side. I also feel that my breasts are too far apart and sag really badly considering my age. My areolas are very pale and huge. I am considering getting breast implants so that my breasts are uplifted and more round in appearance."||"I'm 18. My breasts are somewhat large for my size -I'm less than 5 feet and weigh just over 100 pounds- at 32C. For the longest time, I felt extremely dissatisfied because of my large areolas and because the right is noticeably larger than the left. I also felt they were rather droopy and unappealing. It took 3 years for me to let my high school boyfriend see because I was so self-conscious and ashamed. Over time, I began to accept them. Breasts, even imperfect ones (because whose are naturally perfect?), are attractive and beautiful. I have learned to love mine, and I think a guy who really loves and respects me will feel the same way."|
|"I'm 24 years old from northern Europe. I've never been pregnant. My breasts developed around the age of 11 and have always pretty much looked the same even though they've some gained size as I've gained weight. I have big and lightly coloured areolas and the nipples aren't usually erect. My right breast is slightly bigger than the left, but the left areola is slightly bigger than the right. I'm also a bit overweight at the moment. I've never really liked my breasts, especially the big areolas and the triangularish shape."||"Hi, I'm 26 years old, never been pregnant and never breast-fed. Weigh about 115 pounds, average height."||"I am 20 years old. I've never been pregnant and I've always maintained a healthy weight. I'm a 32DDD and have always been very self conscious about the size of my breasts. Some girls smaller than I would say things like, "Cool that you have big breasts but at least mine won't be on my knees by the time I'm 25!" I've spent alot time obsessing over their size and shape, wondering if they are sagging, and if not that, dreading the inevitable day that they begin to. This site helped me realize that my breasts are perfectly normal. Aging seems a little less scary now."|
|A 19-year old girl. "I've had big breasts since I was like 11 years old, and they are kind of saggy and low by now-not to mention they are asymmetrical-. A gynecologist wanted to make me undergo on breast reduction surgery and suddenly everyone in my family tried to talk me into it. It made me feel ugly and imperfect, though I like my breasts as they are. No one around me likes them and are still trying to make me have the surgery. I just want to say that I share my point of view with you and this website helped me a lot, so I would like to help other people as well.
Thanks for your attention and your efforts in making women feel good about themselves :)"
|"Thank you for putting up such a wonderful site. I've shown it to all my girlfriends and in the process discovered that I wasn't the only one with breast worries. Turns out, all of my friends worry about their size and shape. They all thought that they were too small, or too big, or too triangular, or too saggy. 'Well, if only I had your breasts' we said to each other. We don't say things like that anymore, and we try to love ourselves a little better everyday.
I'm still very self-conscious about my breasts, and they've kept me from being the social butterfly I could. Because I'm asymmetrical (I pad my bra) I can't wear a bathing suit comfortably, which is hard when you live so close to the beach. I haven't gone swimming in years. In the past I've even turned down dates and kept comfortably to myself for long periods of time. I recently entered a relationship that was short-lived, however I was very up-front about my 'issues' and found out that it bothered me much more than anyone else. I realize now that I shouldn't have been surprised.
I'm still thinking about getting plastic surgery, but I'm less keen on the idea these days.
My left breast is a full-C, my right only /just/ a B. My breasts stopped growing over 3 years ago, and I don't think they'll be changing anytime soon. Sometimes I think that my right stopped mid-way in development (mostly because it has a 'mound' while my other side doesn't.)"
|Age 30. "I've never been comfortable with my breasts - negative comments from men have made me very uncomfortable naked. I like having small boobs though, my friends with big boobs get constant staring/comments from men on the street!"|
|Age - 26. "I have never been pregnant thus have never breastfed but fully intend to in the future. I am slightly overweight and my breasts have stretch marks all around them from where they grew so quickly. ... your site has helped me enormously in accepting my body the way it is. From the age of 13 when my breasts first began to develop I felt that they were hideous and abnormal because of my flat nipples. ... As I have grown older my nipples do now protrude when cold or aroused but they're still completely flat in their normal state. I even looked into plastic surgery to "correct" them. It is only now that I realise my breasts are perfectly normal and beautiful and I am so angry at the way women are made to feel about their bodies. We are all beautiful and richly varied and should be rejoicing that."||A 34-year old lady, size 36D or E. "I am very active and jog alot and have noticed stretch marks appearing on the tops of my breasts within the past few years. I am also wary of gravity and so I wear a bra most all the time, except for sleeping, swimming and sex. I oil and massage my breasts frequently to keep the stretch marks at bay.
... I do get fine dark hairs around my nipples which I pluck out. I sometimes get ingrown hairs as well. I am also getting small colourless moles on the underside in the crevice, I think caused from blocked pores when I sweat.
I have grown to love my breasts and enjoy wearing low tops ... However, I do not enjoy the lewd staring, touching and rude comments I receive, having to constantly wear a bra and boring tops, the discomfort of jogging during menstruational times and the hard to breathe harnesses aka sports bra I wear when exercising.
|"I have always felt insecure about my large nipples and shape of my breasts and only since I started reading up on my topic and understand that the western sexualization of breasts is not universal and definitely since your website, I am feeling so much better!! I am 27 years old, I would say I am average sized, not skinny but not overweight, I am feeling comfortable most of the times. My breasts have always been a bit saggy and my nipples have always been rather large. Also, one is bigger than the other and has a bigger areola. My mother has very large breasts, I wear a 34b and it's a comfortable size. I know my mother never liked her breasts and I am determined to break this circle, so my daughter (if I ever have one) will grow up with a more positive feeling for her body. Since I am swimming, I got a very different feeling for my body and especially my breasts. They feel stronger and more like a part of me, which they are and I will never ever have anybody rediculize them again (including myself). To all the women/girls out there, knowledge is power, knowing about these things helps so much, great sitexxx."|
|"I'm 27 and have 36D or sometimes DD breasts. My breasts have always had stretch marks, as I developed very quickly, and they have very light coloured areolas. I have been obsessed with the appearance of my breasts for a couple of years now, thinking that they were so much more saggy than everyone else's and wishing that they were smaller. I had thought many times about getting my breasts reduced, even though I don't have back pain and I really want to breast feed. After seeing your site, I realise how normal my breasts are, and that I can be proud of them and comfortable with them, whatever they look like."||A 20-year old girl who has stretch marks along sides. She has always been slightly overweight and put on quite a bit of weight recently.||A 28-year old woman with PCOS.
"I used to really hate my breasts because they are small-ish with large flat nipples, the left nipple noticeably larger than the right, and I always felt they had a sort of floppy appearance. But, over the years I have grown to accept and love them as a part of me- and haven't received any complaints. ;)
Your site was very helpful- it's great that there is a place where you can squash all the bull that we've been fed by the media. We're all lovely just the way we are! :-)"
|"I am 28 years old. I'm skinny on top and full on bottom (32A-27-37) and I'm usually
self-conscious and feeling very out-of-proportion. Thank you for showing a gallery of natural breasts at a time when our media is so censored with huge-breast and implant images. You are helping me begin to appreciate my own breasts more.
I would never take pictures of my breasts before, but I'd like to be a volunteer for your gallery. The more, the merrier!"
|"I'm 19 years old. ... I have really large
nipples [areolas] as you can see, and they make me very uncomfortable. ... I wish mine were smaller and "perky" like other girls. My fiance has no problem with them, and wonders why I do. It's all about the media.
... Your site has helped me a lot. I have been thinking about surgery since I was really young, but never thought I'd go through with it. Now I know there is no reason for it. There are many women who feel the same way as I do, and your site has obviously helped them out a great deal, too. No, I will probably never be happy with my breasts, but I do feel better about them now. They are me, and I might be able to change them with surgery and still be myself, but God made me this way for a reason. I have someone who loves me for who I am and I will NOT let models, actors or any other celebrity for that matter, get me down. They are fake. I'm me, and my breasts are a part of me. Thank you again and God bless!"
|A 23-year old, size 34A. "I've been diagnosed with PCOS. I do tend to grow a small number of hairs around my areolas, which I pluck out. I always oscillate between liking my body and disliking it. This was helpful in spending more time liking my body than not. I've enjoyed having small breasts during various activities such as jogging and sleeping on my stomach; however I do tend to feel less sexy in general. I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful man in my life who loves me for who I am and tells me I am beautiful and sexy all the time."|
|"I am a 28 year old woman who has never been pregnant. I am a 34 D and I sag quite a bit because of weight gain and loss over the years. I find my breasts a bit too big for my active lifestyle, especially when they swell and become sensitive before my period."||"I'm eighteen and have never been pregnant, but I come fully equipped with real flesh-and-blood breasts - my right is larger than my left, I have one inverted nipple, visible veins, stretchmarks from rapid adolescent development, even light downy fuzz covering the entire breasts. Whatever. I love them. They don't belong to men, they don't belong to society: they belong to me."||"I am 20 years old of average height and weight. Never given birth. I am very comfortable with my breasts."|
|"I am a 52 year old woman and my breasts have never been seen or touched by anyone except 2 doctors! I wear a 40DDD, have never been pregnant and have never breastfed. The right breast is slightly larger and as you can see, the areola is almost invisible on both. I have some stretch marks and blue veins. I am proud of them and their size! I just wish they didn't sag so much. They are heavy but I don't have any discomfort or back aches. I am about 50 pounds overweight. Thank you!"||"I am 19 years old. Never been pregnant. Aside from my breasts I do have an athletic build which I think contribute to a bit of droopiness. I have never really been satisfied with the appearance of my breasts. I would like them to look a little fuller and the actual nipple doesn't stick out unless I am cold etc. I was a late bloomer not starting my period until I was 14 almost 15 years old. I am now a 40D and grew to that size in a period of 3 years. Over the years, I learn to love them. Hopefully one day I will be completely satisfied with any changes that may come. Love the website!"||"Thank you very much for creating this site! I am 23 years old and have never been pregnant. I am about 225 pounds, and I have always had negative feelings about my breasts. When I was younger, my large areolas bothered me but I think I am over that now. When I gain weight my breasts never grow, and I have always thought they weren't in proportion with the rest of my body. I don't like how my nipples point down and my breasts are covered in stretch marks."|
|"I'm 22. I am obese, and the photo was taken while lying down. I have PCOS, have never menstruated, and you can't really see it in the photo but I have wispy hairs around my nipple. I have never done anything to enhance my breasts.
Thank you for your site, by the way. I came across it (and decided to sumbit a photo) because I was worried that I, too, had freaky nipples. My areolas are on the larger side, but my nipples themselves are quite small (flat, I have now learned) and the areola crinkles when hard.
Now I know my chest is not "freaky". So thank you, again."
|"I'm 23, never pregnant, never breastfed. My breasts started to develop when I was 9, so it was a while before I started wearing bras and I always thought this might not have helped... I've always been borderline overweight, but with healthy weight, and just recently lost about 15 lbs due to illness, although it hasn't really affected my boobs. They're a 36D or DD. There are a few stretch marks but they don't bother me at all. The only thing that constantly bothers me is how droopy they are, and the nipples are not often hard. When they are hard (like cold), I am über-confident and I love my breasts, but when they aren't, they really do hold me back a bit from standing up naked in front of someone, as I feel like one of those tribal aborigenes in documentaries! I briefly considered a breast-lift before, but I decided against it since I'm not comfortable with the procedure. I think in the end it's making sure whoever sees them respects you and showing them off in their best light.
Thank you ever so much! It made me feel better to see some that looked exactly like mine!"
|"I am 31, Australian of English/Irish heritage, have always been of small
slim build (same size/weight since puberty), and I have never been pregnant
or had any breast surgeries or procedures.
Obviously my breasts are small (34A), but they have always been perky, and they haven't started to sag yet, which is a definite benefit of small breasts!"
|"I'm 39 yo, never been pregnant. Bra size 34 C.
We have genetic dispositions to be small breasted AA or even not at all. I'm the lucky one in the family. At 16 yo I was a 34A, weighing 104 pounds. By the age 24, I was a 34B cup, weighing 124 lbs, weight gain due to medicine against migraines.
READ THIS... I have 3 children adopted at birth... I never been pregnant and never took any kind of medecine to induce lactation.
At my third child, I started producing milk for no medical reason, my son was then 3 months old... I did not nurse my son feeling too unconfortable and worrying about not having enough milk to suit his needs... My physician told me that I wanted so badly children that my body spoke for itself!!! This body reaction is really rare but happens sometimes... With producing milk, I had my breasts unlarged for a full C cup and never lost that breasts gain. Later on, I had to take another medicine with producing milk as a rare side effect and it happened again... my breasts became a bit larger and stayed that way.
Now weighing 145 lbs, I have a full 34 C cup. I really like my breasts the way they are no stretch marks, quite perky for my age, I like also the areola and nipples. The only thing is that my nipples are a bit large... size of a milk bottle nipple... Working only with men, they were teasing me because my nipples are really showing trough my clothes. I now wear padded bras to hide a bit my nipples but the padded bras make me look more of a little D cup... I was really glad to find your WebSite... I suffer from a rare genetic desease which gives me un "unbalanced" skeleton... scoliosis with narrow shoulders, small rib cage, unstreat legs and arms with short torso and long skinny legs... I always been self-conscious about my condition and I know that my body figure is "classified" as unnormal... So I always use to hide my curvy back by making my breasts more appealing then the rest of my body. They look larger then they really are because of my narrow rib cage and I have not much space between my breasts. Thank you for your website, I saw other women dealing with scoliosis and the impact on the breasts appearence, it was a relief for me to see that I wasn't the only one!"
|"Hey I found your website the other day, and I think it's great what you're doing. I'm 19, and I just found out that I'm a 32D. It came as a bit of a shock. I never thought I was that big, and I've worn a 36B for years. I've never been pregnant, and I've always been about the same size. No issues with stretch marks or anything, but I do wish they naturally fell closer together and pointed straight ahead. Oh well, nobody's perfect..."||"I'm 18 years of age. I have never been pregnant before. I'm average sized. My breasts grew very slowly, but boy did they grow! About 2 years ago they were a 34C, and I have lost weight and been on birth control since then. Now, my breasts are a size 32DDD (thanks to that birth control), and it's hard for a lot of people to believe that they're really that big, but I was recently fitted. My areolas are pretty large and light, and my breasts are spaced a little too far for my liking. Although I am mostly happy with my breasts, sometimes I wish they were smaller. It's very hard to find my size outside of department stores or specially ordering them. I'm glad I found this website because it helped me to see the world outside of porn star breasts!"|
|"I am a 25-year old girl from Taiwan, 32 E in Taiwan size. I was suffering from the risk of breast cancer several months ago. The abnormal discharge with bloody look really scared me. Fortunately, it's only a small benign tumor. It's so sorry girls like me who grow in Asian coutry do not have chance to know about ' normal ' body looking, there's no chance to create healthy body image from education. Bare is not a typical issue in our life. The poor information enviroment created ignorant girls who always feel embarrassed with their 'abnormal' body. Most of girls receive the image from commercial or movies --- sure they do spend a lot of time to doupt the different and couldn't accept their bodies well. It's my first time to take bare breast photo. Hope some day in Asia, body image could created in a healthy way, not only from the TV and lies."||"I am 19 years old and have never been pregnant. I am Puertorican. Bra size: 36DD (after bra fitting).
When my breasts first started to grow, I would always kind of try and push them down,
I would use cloth and tie it around my breasts; some girls use duct tape. I absolutely
hate wearing bras but I have to. I've always wished to have small perky boobs like my friends, that way
I won't ever have to wear bras. I think women with large breasts, usually want them smaller
and women with small breasts, want them larger. I love to play sports but I've always been a
little embarrassed to play basketball, jumprope etc. because of my breasts noticeably bouncing
around, even while wearing a bra.
I don't work out at all, I eat lots of unhealthy foods and I get chest acne.
I have small, light, thin stretch marks at the top of my breasts (barely noticeable). I think they are saggy and asymmetrical; my right breast sags a little lower and the areola is much, much more larger than my left and over time gets much bigger (for some odd reason). I've always thought my breasts are very ugly and unattractive. I could never find nice feminine blouses that fit my waist as well as my breasts. My boyfriend thinks they're beautiful and hates it when I complain.
Thank you for this wonderful website and helping me and others realize that no-one is naturally perfect. All women come in different shapes and sizes. This has helped me and I feel just a little better about my breasts. I appreciate and respect all of the women who have bared their breasts and it is now that I know there are many other women who have the same insecurities as I do."
|"I'm 39 years old, and have always been overweight, but not obese. My breast asymetry and sagging started straight away in pueberty, as my breasts began developing. Weight loss at 15 years old after 2 abdominal surgeries, only seemed to make the sagging and assymetry worse. I've struggled to accept my breasts all this time, with varying degrees of success.
A few stupid insensitive comments from men have sometimes knocked the confidence that I've tried to hard to build up. I have, I suppose thought about having breast uplift and augmentation surgery, but it was always more of a dream, a pleasant fantasy to build me up in times of low confidence and disgust at my own breasts. It's hard to try and accept yourself when bombarded with media and male expectations, but I keep trying.
I've never ever showed my breasts in public, not even in a swimming costume, and after twice baring them for insensitive men, I'm now struggling to try and make myself show them to any new partner I may have in the future. I'm determined not to give in to societal pressure, or my own insecurities on this, and have surgery. I will resist that way, because after having non elective surgeries in the past, I know that surgery is no walk in the park.
I'm trying to accept myself, and your site has been invaluable. Just submitting this picture is a massive step for me.
Thank you so much for the gallery. It's made me feel less 'abnormal' and less alone. Brave girls, all of them who've submitted pictures. Well done to all of them
