Normal Breasts Gallery, part 4
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 23 years old (never been pregnant or obese) and I have hated my breasts since the Montgomery's tubercles (small balls around areola) appeared when I was 11 or 12 years old. I know that it's normal, every women has it, just in some cases appears more than others (like me). My breasts are sag and asymmetrical with stretch marks, my areolas are big. I'm insecure when a man says to me, "You are a beautiful girl", because I think "If I show him my breasts, he will find me horrible!". But I'm trying to love my breasts, because they are not different of others, they are normal. Thank you for your site, it made a big difference in my life! :)"||"Age: 26. Never been pregnant.
One breast waxed, other pre-wax.
Hate nipple hair, never knew if it was common or not. Wanted to share
picture because found website was comforting in knowing that I'm not

|"I'm 20. I am a medium build with a 38D chest. No one but me has ever seen my naked breasts, but I know if the opportunity ever comes I will have a really hard time letting anyone see them. I am an attractive woman, and I have a fairly nice body other than my breasts, and I always feel like guys will assume I look better naked than I really do. I feel like I'll be a let down. I have always hated my breasts, I think they're too big and too saggy, and I think I have really weird nipples. They also have large veins on the tops, although you can't really see it in this picture. Although this site has helped me to realize that I am more normal than I thought, I still can barely look at them without feeling like crying. I think all the pictures in the media and in movies of perfect breasts have made girls like me feel like we are inadequate because ours don't look like that. I really hope that someday this isn't the case. Thank you for making this site. I hope one day we will all be able to love and appreciate the bodies we were given."|
|"I am 53 years ago, never been pregnant. I've always been on the overweight side but my breasts have always been small and that has made me very self-conscious. Your page has helped me a lot, and I decided to send you my photo so it could help other women. In reality I stumbled upon your site looking for breast augmentation methods, and all that I found was breasts of models, which made me feel worse. When I saw your page and the photos, I noticed what was the reality and I started to realize that I was within normal range."||"19, I'm obese and have stretch marks despite being a 40 C. I have consulted with my doctor about the difference in size and she says they may eventually begin to grow evenly. I always sleep with some type of bra. I feel really good about them and haven't had any complaints "||"I am 19 years old and have struggled with the beauty of my breast ever since I was a small girl. The stretch marks and the small shape have always been talked about since majority of my friends are C cups. I have come to love my breast in every way. Even though they may not be what I see often, they fit my figure and that’s what matters."|
|"I am so happy I stumbled upon your website. I was trying to search for
a place where I could buy a bra that would fit me, and your site came
up and reminded me that I don't need a bra!
I am 31, never been pregnant. When I was a kid I looked forward to having large breasts someday, until my mother had breast implants and I realized how weird it was to focus so much on breast size. Mine ended up very small, I can't even find a bra to fit me except sports bras. And I didn't even notice they were uneven until I saw the photo that I took. I am very happy with having small breasts, I have heard a lot of complaints from my large-busted friends about men staring at them all the time. I never have that problem!!! I think in the past I have worn a 34-B bra but those seem too big for me now, my breasts were slightly larger for a while when I took birth control pills."
|"I am 44 years old, have never been pregnant. I have stretch marks on my breasts, and I think that they are a little bit saggy, and I think that I have a big areolas and nipples, and I don't like it."||"I've always been rather skinny (125 lbs / 5'10") and
matured quite late, so that my breasts - at an age of
21 - perhaps aren't fully grown yet.
After years of feeling not like a "real woman" due to their size, I'm now on my way to accept them as they are. Thanks to this site I also realized that their asymmetry isn't as uncommon as I thought."
|"I am overweight and 32 year old. I have have never lost any signficant weight, just steady gain since about the age of 14. Though I wear a 38 C bra, my breasts are very small for my body. My breasts are asymetrical (right breast is much larger than the left), hairy (I have PCOS), my nipples point in different directions, my areolas are huge, I have a lot of space in between my breasts and I have stretch marks. I have always been extremely self conscious of of my breasts and have been seriously considering a breast lift and augmentation. I am glad that I happened upon your website during my research and I greatly appreciate the consciousness you are creating. It is very important for women of all ages to understand and see normal breasts instead of the "perfect" and perky images (often fake) that we are bombarded with on a daily basis. Again, thank you."||"Hi- It was really interesting seeing the gallery, so I'm sending in a
picture. I'm 38 years old and have never been pregnant.
I'm 5'-4", 210 pounds, which is technically obese. However, my breasts are small. I wear a 40B bra. I've been in the same 30 pound weight range since I reached my adult height, and I stay active, but I never diet. As you can see, my breasts aren't particularly saggy or stretched out. I've got curvy body with a defined waist, but I've always been a little self conscious about my small breasts. I wear a lot of padded bras, but I'd never consider surgery. I'm into size acceptance, and that includes my small breasts as well as my big butt. :-)"
|"Hello, I am 20 years old from mid-western US, never been pregnant, never been overweight. My mother never taught me how to properly wear a bra, so for a few awkward years I was wearing all the wrong bras (two sizes too small with an underwire, if you can imagine,) and they gave my boobs quite a cruel sag and I believe the material irritated the nipple. These days I'd rather not wear a bra at all, but the nipples are cross-eyed and down-gazing. I think its safe to say that most men don't much care (it would be against their nature), but when I'm down, my breasts are always a fine target for blaming my troubles on. Easy to operate under the assumption that I'm the only one on earth who's dissatisfied with my breasts and body. Not even sure how I'd prefer them to be -- if I had small breasts I'd probably wish them to be big. Always want what you don't have. Thanks for your website."|
|"Hi, I am a 26 year old of African-American descent. My breasts appeared first when I was 10, I was chubby then, and they have had stretch marks and been saggy ever since. I have always been very self-conscious about my breasts. As I get older I am learning to accept them, but I still wish they weren't as saggy. I wear a 36C, and my breasts fluctuate a lot depending on my weight, my period, etc. I have spent a long time standing in the mirror wishing that my body looked different, I am pledging to spend at least that much time being thankful for the body I have."||"I've found your website great. I've never really looked at my breasts before and now I've taken pictures!! I never realised one drooped more. I'm 35, never pregnant and not taking any medication, I'm Irish, wear a 34D and weight wise I have a bmi of 25 but would always be considered big. Hopefully after this I'll take a better appreciation of my breasts and will be less self concious."||"I am eighteen years old. I'm average build and size, 5ft 6" and a size 10 - 12. My breasts have always been asymmetrical. It started out very unnoticable when I was 14, then it gradually got worse. It's now at the point where my right is a FF-G cup and my left is a DD. Four sizes difference. It gets me down alot. I should be out, having fun and clubbing, wearing skimpy tops but instead I need to find bras that I can stuff with padding to make them appear more even without it beign too noticable. I have a boyfriend of four months who I have plainly refused to let him see them. No matter how much he says he loves me I doubt I will ever feel comfortable enough to show them to him, which is shocking as I'm young and should feel proud of what I have. I'm going to university soon, so I hope that perhaps aids my confidence. All of my friends seem to have these perfect breasts and I'm just the odd one out. It's a terrible feeling. When I'm older I may well consider plastic surgery as an option but right now I can't afford it. Strapless dresses and unpadded, non-underwired bikini tops are out of the question. If I had even breasts, I would definitely wear both of those. This site has been inspirational to me though and I feel that by looking at all of these healthy women, I'll be able to learn something and perhaps begin to accept my body as it is."|
|"I'm 18 years old and have never been pregnant. I've always been a normal weight, more on the skinny side. My left breast is slightly bigger than my right and the areola on my left breast is also bigger. There is hair around my nipples. I used to have very small A cup breasts that didn't fill a bra but I recently went on birth control and they've grown. Unfortunately this recent growth has caused a bunch of red stretch marks to appear on my left breast. I've recently come to terms with my breasts and overall I am very happy with them (although i'd like the stretch marks to fade just a bit!). "||"18 years old - 34A. Ran track all four years of high school, athletic in college - slim/muscular.
I've always felt disproportionate; my legs and behind are comparatively large (34/26/37).
Thanks so much for the work you do through your site. In college, I sometimes find it difficult to remember that women come in all shapes and sizes and that you don't have to have big breasts to be beautiful."
|"32 yrs old, never been pregnant. 38D and average weight.
I am so happy that there is a site like this. I developed early, first bra at 12 and was so embarrassed, no-one else had to wear one! It's only over the last few years have I become a little obsessed with breasts and others peoples and what they look like and do they look like mine. I wish they didn't sag as much but sometimes they look perkier than others. I have a love hate relationship with my breasts!"
|"I'm nearly 20 and have never been pregnant. I started developing at 12 and before I knew it I had a C cup. I thought my boobs were fairly big at a C as my friends all had A or B cups but I really started to freak out when my boobs increased to a D and then to an E. After this increase I got stretch marks under my breasts and a little on top but they don't really bother me. I also have little bumps on my areola. I don't really know what they are but I'm told they're normal. I used to think it would be much better to have small boobs and I thought my big boobs made me look fat but now I love my boobs even though it can be hard to find bras and I get the occasional upper back pain. I've never had the teasing or constant staring that many women with large boobs complain of."||Age - 23 years old. "My weight is average. I'm not totally comfortable with my breasts, I wish they were fuller."||Age 29. "I have had great weight fluctuations including gastric bypass surgery. My breasts do not vary too much according to my weight. I went from flat to a D over one summer in 8th grade. I currently wear a 40 DD or DDD. I have stretch marks and prominent veins. I have also researched reductions, lifts and implants (What was I thinking???). I am on good terms with them at the current moment."|
|"Hi I just wanted to say that you have a great page, and I would be proud to have a picture of my breasts on it! I'm a 19 year old girl who has never been pregnant. I am tall and thin, but not directly skinny - I do have hips and female curves. I like the shape of my breasts, but lately they have gotten a little smaller than they used to be. I sometimes wish they were a little bigger, but I'm not concidering implants. I try to be happy with, and proud of my body. Small breasts are beautiful too!"||"A wonderfully inspiring website for those us that came up in a distant era. Caucasian of western and northern European stock, 60 years of age, 30 pounds overweight, never married, was never suckled. Hope you can use this! Keep up the liberating work."||"28 year old female. I do plan (want) to eventually become pregnant and breast feed for
at least a year. Yet, I have always had a sense that I am infertile. I
have never heard of POCS until I saw it on this website. I sincerely
think that I have it... I have had acne since I was 12 and it's just
gotten worse over the years ... And if I hadn't started electrolysis five years ago, I would
probably have a full beard - dark and thick. I've sprouted a few hairs
on my chest and around my nipples, but I zapped most of them and the
rest now I just pluck ... the
same with the few long thin light ones that sprout up around my jaw
line. Never had a mustache - I have light and less than the average
woman, of leg, pubic, and under arm hair - so that's never been a
I'm in a long term healthy and loving relationship, but I am super self concious about my breasts. Now that it is currently bathing suit season I'm even more depressed. I can pass as a very attractive and shapely feminine woman - I do admit that I am a "head turner", but I am a completely different person underneath these clothes and without the make-up. I don't wear make-up to get all dolled up but to simply cover my acne. Basically what it comes down to - I HATE my breasts and thus my body. HATE. Even with my closest female friends - one time we went skinny dipping and I was the only one who kept my bathing suit top on. I wear a NU-Bra underneath my bathing suit tops - that is when I dare to wear a bathing suit. My depression is severe - my body is effecting my personality and social life. I am an extremely extraverted, outgoing, positive, loving person - except when I am by myself - which I like to be by myself most often."
|"Hi Maria, thanks for your website. It has really inspired me to accept my breasts as they are. I love my breasts; even though they are big; I don't get back pains or anything like that. I have always wanted bigger breasts when I was growing up. My breasts started developing when I was 12 and now I'm 26 and I'm 36D/38C but I wanted to send u a picture of my breasts so that u can post them on ur website with the other ladies pictures so that they can inspire other women to love their bodies as they are and hopefully boost their self confidence :) "||"I am 30 years old and gave never been pregnant. My breasts have been asymmetrical since middle school. As you can see, the right breast is significantly bigger than the left, and they both sag quite a bit because of their weight.|
I'm not sure how many cup sizes the difference is, but it's made bra shopping very difficult. I used to go to a small boutique that did professional fittings, but one time there was a new employee there and when she saw my breasts she got this horrified look on her face and asked "what happened?!" Needless to say that was very embarrassing, and they lost my business. Now I just stick to wearing minimizer bras in a size in between both, somewhere around a C-cup. It's loose on the left and I spill over on the right but it's not too noticeable with the right top.
No doctor has ever told me that there was anything wrong with them other than to suggest watching closely for lumps and sudden changes in size. I did seek a breast augmentation once but the doctor told me unless I lost 20 pounds they would have to reduce them to a B-cup. I thought that was strange but he gave me no alternative, and I like their larger size. I have had several partners, none of whom have ever commented on their appearance, but as the years go by I find I like them less and less. I don't like to take my shirt or bra off anymore. That said, I am still not sure I'm OK with surgically modifying my body in any way. Instead I'm finally trying to learn to love my body as it is.
I really enjoyed looking at these galleries. I didn't know that it was so common to have asymmetrical breasts. I really enjoyed the way some women view their breasts as wonderful regardless of any differences that our society calls "flaws." That's a strength I don't have yet, but this site will help me on my journey. And for what it's worth, Ladies: I think each and every one of you is beautiful!"
|"I am a 19-year old Swedish woman and have been depressed and suffered from panic anxiety for many years. I feel like I want plastic surgery for my breasts, to make them look more round and natural (not like porn boobs though). But a part of me says that it's better if I learn to love what I have, because if there had been more women who left their tuberous looking breasts alone and been proud of them, it would've been easier for me to accept myself. I feel horrible about my body now (5'6" tall and about 154 pounds) and it all has to do with the shape of my breasts. But my plan now is to start exercising, take better care of myself and once I've become fit maybe I'll feel better about my breasts. I feel like if I meet someone who loves me like this, I will feel so good, but if I meet someone after I've had my breasts reshaped, they might like what I look like, but it's not really me they see. Thank you for listening."|
|"Adding these pictures may help people see the wide range of breast phenotypes out there. The picture belongs to a 35 year old woman. Never pregnant. Menstruated first at age 12. Inherited a small breast shape from her mother. Maternal aunt also is small chested.
Thanks for making people aware of all our differences and that we should be grateful for life in general and not obsess so much. It's ironical how some of the ladies pictured here with slightly larger breasts, which I would gladly have, aren't satisfied and label themselves too small and want bigger ones too. Whenever I focus too much on my chest I try to refocus and be grateful for good health, because that is something I take for granted when I despair about my appearance. Everyone how has some feature they are not satisfied with, which may or may not be hidden from others. In my case I irrationally worry that others judge me and assume things about me based on my flat appearance. So I risk giving my flat chest the power to crush my self-esteem and impact my relationships negatively by making me avoid certain social situations and activities.
|"Your site is amazing. I've learned so much even about my own boobs. I'm a 34D and 22 years old."||"I'm a 32 DD. I've always been skinny, but have been blessed/cursed with DDs since middle school. I love my body now as an adult, but these guys are more than out of the norm for my frame if you get my drift. Especially when I was younger I think I could have benefitted from having a role model with a similar size (why your website is awesome). I do not fit into standard bathing suits, and most stores carrying underwear don't hold my size."|
