Normal Breasts Gallery, part 6
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!

|"Hi I'm 23 old who has never been pregnant. I like my breasts and I think there are normal but I think too they're very small. Wherever I go I wear a bra because I won't show them on street. I don't feel sexy! Sometimes my boobs are hurting and my friend touches them to massage my breast tissue."||"I'm 25 years old, I've never been pregnant, and my breasts have never fed a baby. My breasts have always been this saggy. They're never constrained by a bra more than 20 hours a week, and lots of times I go weeks without wearing a bra at all. While I'm not brave enough to go topless in public, I often do at home.
I have had the stretch marks for as long as I've had the breasts (starting about age 9). There's also a bit of hair on them. I have some acne on my breasts as I do all over my body.
I think my breasts are very pretty and I'm aching for the day that I'll be able to feed little ones from them. The notion of being able to not only nourish a child with my breasts, but also comfort and reassure a child with my breasts, is very moving."
|A 22-year old woman with asymmetrical breasts; hasn't been pregnant. She says, "I think it is very important that girls my age see that their breasts do not have to be perfect (indeed, mine are far from it)."|
|"I am 18 years old and my boobs stopped growing when I was about 16. At first I was disappointed, but I realized that they looked fine on me; I do yoga so I'm quite thin. My areolas are really light colored and although you cannot see it in this picture, my right nipple is damaged and almost the shape of a star."||"I am 19 years old. When I began to develop it happened too fast. My breasts have strech marks all along the tops and sides, they have been there for as long as I can remember. They bother me a lot, I despise looking down on my breasts because the marks just look horrible. I have lost weight so they have a sag to them, which bums me out. I thought they would get perky with weight loss. My areolas are quite large but I am learning to love my breasts. You get what you get, got to live with it and I am. : )"||Fairly large breasts of a 21-year old woman. She has not been pregnant.|
|Small breasts of a 25-year old. She got stretch marks in her breasts during her quick development in puberty but they are very faint and not visible in the photo.||"I'm a 27-year old white woman. I like my breasts now, but I worried about them a lot as a teenager. I wish this website had been around back then."||Young breasts of a 20-year old.|
|"I am 18 years old, I have had different sized breasts since I was 15. I have learned to accept my breast sizes and come to realize that it really is not that noticeable."||This woman's in her early 20s, and her breasts started drooping after she lost a lot of weight. She also went from D-cup to B-cup.||She's a young woman of 20 years of age.|
|Breasts of a middle-aged woman who has not had children.||A 19-year girl. "I've always been very consious about my breast I always thought they were too big. Growing up in school guys always made comments about them which made me feel even worst." Losing weight caused her breasts to sag more: "i'm not happy about it, but am learning how to accept my breasts new appearance."||A 20-year old: "I was always questioning the normalcy of my breasts. I have always had streachmarks and pores on my breasts since my adolescent years when they gradually expanded. These are my breasts and I am proud of them. This site has also been helpful because I would have never had an outlet to show my breasts in confidence towards helping other women with similar inclinations."|
|A 35-year old woman with one breast slightly larger than the other.||A girl age 19 with fairly dark areolas/nipples: "Slim build, but love my huge nipples."||A 20-year old girl: "My breasts are saggy and one is larger than the other. Nipple size is also different and I have stretch marks. But I don't care! I have accepted my breasts they way they are and I love them."|
|"I was a late bloomer, and didn't get my period until I was 15. I was a C cup for a few years - and then I suddenly surged to a DDD.
I have also considered a breast reduction for "fashion" purposes, but since it's a pretty extreme procedure, and I have no back problems, and as I plan to nurse my children someday, I have decided not to do it.
The breakout all over my breasts and torso began a year ago when I went off the birth control pill. That has been very dissapointing. I always had clear skin, and this just hasn't gone away. Doc says don't worry about it and that it will eventually clear up.
I'm optimistic that my skin will clear up -- if it does, I think I could be proud of my breasts again ...And I think I'd have new perspective on my stretch marks and Montgomery glands ... in retrospect, they were NOTHING compared to the acne ..."
|"I am what would be considered obese. I'd started out as a b-cup when I was around the age of 10 and I guess I'm lucky b/c I'm only at a 44D now. I'll freely admit that pornography made me think that my breasts were ugly b/c they weren't as perky or as nice but I realize now that they more than likely had to pay for theirs and mine are 100% home grown. :) I have the stetch makes on them to prove it. :)"||"Hi, This is a picture of my breasts that I hope will help someone feel like they're not a freak. I couldn't see any like mine on your site. I'm 19, never been pregnant, am average size and never used to like my boobs. In high school guys used to call me "white pointers" because of them and I was extremely insecure to show them to my darling (now of 2 years) but now thanks to his compliments and reassurances and seeing your page, I don't mind them anymore."|
|"I'm 23, 5'8" tall. I've never had kids, but I've had stretch marks on my breasts since high school. I wear a 34DD, but I used to be a DDD when I was about 15 pounds heavier. It took me years to learn to be happy with my breasts. I've gone from being suicidal and in tears over them to being confident enough to post a picture of them on this website. It all just takes time."||"I'm 21, haven't been pregnant or breastfed. I am obese, I have stretchmarks as you can see in the pic, I also have a third nipple low down on the right (but I figure they still count as normal breasts.) I've had some pretty uncomplimentary comments about them, but although I can't choose what my breasts look like, I can choose how I feel about them, and I think they're lovely just the way they are. "||"Hello, first of all thank you for your website! I look on it everytime I get sad that my breast aren't "perfect". but what is perfect? Well I'm 18, 5'5 and have never been overweight. My breast are different sizes and sometimes I find myself wearing certain clothes or holding my arm in front of my smaller boob. But this website has taught me that there are people out there just like me! Thank you!"|
|"I am 18 years old. Never been pregnant. I am average weight. I have always been concerned about my small breasts. I have been worried about they're small and odd shape. I just recently was able to fill out 34A completly. This site has helped me feel better about my small breasts. I am learning to accept my body."||"Hello! I'm 20 years old. I'm pretty average. Not athletic really. I like having small breasts; however I do get self conscious. They are different sizes and one of my nipples is inverted. It's hard to find bras and bathing suit tops, along with dresses and tops (because some have the breast built in that is simply too big).
I really like what you're doing with this website... it's nice to know others experience the same things."
|"I am 26 years old. Never been pregnant. I am categorized as morbidly obese. I have never had a good relationship with my breasts. I always thought they were too saggy. They grew really fast, I went from nothing to C- cups in less than a year when I was 11 years old. They are now a D or DD depending on the bra. They used to have very prominent stretch marks, that have now faded to silvery, but still are all around my breast, especially along the top. I am starting to learn to love them. This website has really helped me along the way. I hope someone can see my breasts and realize that their own breasts are normal and nothing to be ashamed of or hate."|
|"Hey, I'm 21, European girl, and never been pregnant. I've lost 20 pounds during one year some years ago. Now I'm 36D after bra fitting. After losing weight I gained 10 pounds back until recently when I lost it again. My right breast is smaller than the left (since always?) and the other nipple is bigger, and both of my breasts are quite saggy in my opinion and point to the sides. I used to think it's not okay but your web site has made a difference in my life and I definitely feel a lot more confident and happy about myself! I wish I could tell everyone about this page!"||"I am a 20 yo woman who struggled with anorexia from 15-17. I am still working on kicking it. All the women in my family have large breasts, so I always felt like I needed to make them bigger, especially as I lost weight. At my lowest, I was 105 lbs and about an A cup. Now that I've returned to "normal" eating habits and my weight has increased, I feel like my breasts haven't kept up. I am currently taking herbs to see if I can get an increase in growth. According to my most recent measurements, I'm in between a C and a D cup, but I still don't feel like that's big enough. I'm somewhat asymmetrical, the right (my right) being smaller than the left.
Visiting you website has helped me feel a lot better about myself. I see that I'm actually normal, and if I don't get any growth out of the herbs, I don't think I'll mind. My family has a history of breast cancer, so I feel I also need to come to terms with the fact I might lose my breasts.
Thanks so much for the work you are doing. I hope someday, after I recover, I will be able to do similar work to help women appreciate just how beautiful they all are."
|"I am 18 years of age. A bit overweight, but I'm happy with my frame. I lost a lot of weight after going through puberty. My breasts developed at age nine. I was a pretty hefty kid, which also added to their quick development. I was quite unpopular as well, and girls used to snap bra as they passed my desk to make fun of me. This lead to very low self esteem- I've always hated how my breasts looked. The stretch marks, the large areolas, and their shape. As of recently, I'm pretty content with my body as a whole. I'd like to say that I'm 100% comfortable with my breasts now, but I'm still terrified of the moment my boyfriend finally sees them. I know he'll love them though. I came across this site last year, and I have to say it has helped with my body image quite a lot. I'd like to personally thank all the other women who have shared their pictures, and I want to do my part by sharing mine!"|
|"Hello, I'm 21 years old. Never been pregnant. I'm totally flat chested, and I also have inverted nipples. Skinny. I don't feel uncomfortable with my body. When I was younger I noticed that my breasts didn't start to grow and I got to worrying and felt bad looking others girls. But with the course of the years I realized that this is my body and I have to live with that. Now I feel good with myself and my body."||"I am 20 years old, never had sex, never been pregnant, never breastfed. I went from a late bloomer to the largest bust in the class in about 2 years, so I've heard the teasing from both sides. Because of my large breasts (size 34H), I've also gotten unwanted male attention and in effect, I became very private about my nudity. However, this site has shown me that my breasts are unique and beautiful and I'm ready to show them to the world and inspire other women to feel the same. Some interesting things about my breasts are that the left nipple is smooth, while the right one is bumpy. I got a tattoo of a Chamsa (though you can't really see it form this angle) on the underside of my left breast several years ago, and I think it adds to my breast's beauty."||"I am 23 years old, overweight, but more or less proportionate (my bottom half is a bit bigger than my top half). I have not gained or lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time. I've always been heavier, and my breasts started developing at an early age (I started my period at 11) and grew rather quickly. Currently I wear a size 38D. I have many stretchmarks all over my breasts, but they aren't terribly noticeable anymore. My areolas and nipples are rather large and sit low on my chest, making my breasts look like they sag more than they actually do. My breasts may not be perfect but I like them quite a bit and my guy LOVES them!"|
|"I am 23 years old. At 18 I weighed 125 lbs. As I got older I started gaining weight. I'm now at almost 180 lbs. I have never liked my breasts. I have always thought they're weird shaped. As a result I always wear a bra. Because of how they look I have a very low self esteem."||"Hello, I'm 26 and never had children. I don't know what to say about them; I'm not very confident. I wanted to get surgery and the doctor told me I have a sag and a flap. If I could change them I would! But, you work with what you got! I'm a B34."||"I have suffered from Pectus Carinatum (also called pigeon chest, is a deformity of the chest characterized by a protrusion of the sternum and ribs. It is the opposite of pecuts excavatum) since I was young (I believe it became noticeable at age 8).
I was a late bloomer, and I always wore sports bras because they were comfortable - and every other bra I found for young girls had underwire that rubbed my skin raw where my sternum protruded. I am now 21 and have been concerned about the shape, feel, and how my breasts are positioned on my chest due to the Pectus Carinatum. I also have stretch marks that are not too visible, but I can feel them and see them, and blame them on my sternum that has pushed my breasts in different directions and therefore affected the skin on my breasts.
I have never been pregnant, and have never lost/gained large amounts of weight. I have been fitted to a 38B (USA) and it is very hard to find bras that are comfortable. Due to the lack of comfort with underwire in most bras, I have searched high and low for comfortable, proper fitting bras with no underwire. I have found the most comfortable bra for me is a Dream Angels Unlined (no wire) from Victoria Secret.
My breasts also seem to be fairly far apart, a bit 'off-set', and they point out sideways instead of the 'usual' straight forward. I am gradually accepting how my breasts look and feel every day. The photos, stories, and especially positive comments your website promotes are heartwarming and uplifting. Every woman should view this site! Thank you!"
|"I was 21 when the picture was taken and it was before pregnancy. I have had one child since. Those are my natural pre pregnancy breasts. I have had no surgeries and my breasts are a 38D."||This is a picture of the same lady as on the left, post pregnancy. "My boobs are 40D and sag a lot and my belly has a lot of stretchmarks."||"I'm 19 and a 36F. Your website has really helped me be more comfortable with my breasts and helped me pick a better fitting bra. Thank you so much :)"|
|"There are not a lot of small breasts on your site. I wanted to submit mine to help other small breasted women accept themselves. I didn't have a lot of food growing up and we didn't have much milk or things like that, I was pretty skinny when I was developing breasts and didn't have a lot of fat to spare. I wear a 32A . I was always too embarrased to get measured at Victorias Secret. They rarely had my size and if they did, they were always very padded. The lower sagging breast looks smaller from the side than the higher up one. I think the higher up one is a 32A and the smaller one may be a double A. I cannot squeeze my breasts together to get cleavage. I have seen men who have been on estrogen for a year be able to grow breasts that look bigger than mine. I have always felt like I needed to stay skinny to look proportunate. If I gain weight my stomache protrudes more but my breasts don't seem to grow any larger. They used to be more perky. They then began to sag at 23ish, worse than they do now. I took some herbal tablets that were supposed to make them grow, but they only made them firm, which I was happy to get some firmness back. My nipples are slightly larger than they used to be and look smaller and darker when firm. I am 31 years old and I have never had children. Thank you for this site, I did not know what normal breasts looked like, and was searching for a visual size chart."||"I'm an 24 year old african women who lives in Europe. Never been pregnant.
In my younger years I've always been a bit overweight. So my Cup was between DD-E. I was always very happy with my breasts, till some photographer told me they were a bit saggy.
This made me so sad. I always thought breasts had to be perky especially at younger age. I hate movies who potrait actresses with so calles ''perfect'' breasts. Beceause men seem to think, younger women should have perky breasts.
I also read on your site that bras are not that good. Since a while I went partime-braless. So I only wear bras when going to work. At home I take those horrible things of, and being braless feelf so much better. And my breast look more beautiful when not wearing a bra.
Now I'm a European size of 75/80-D. Going to this site helped me a lot, and now I'm very happy with my breasts. I think this website should be shown to all men, for their sexual education.
|"Wow this is a great page! I'm 20 years old and I've often felt very insecure about my breast for a long time. My mom was a C cup and watching all my friends blossom to C & D cups in high school was hard for me. I've never been pregnant,but I'm not the skinniest girl on the block. I have a bit extra. I noticed my breasts actually seemed a bit less perky when I gained weight and that made me feel even worse because the only positive I'd heard about the appearance of small breasts was the perkiness. After meeting my partner I've started to feel a lot better about my breasts. They're "perfect handfulls" :)"|
|"I am 25 and my breasts are a 36B. I've always had a huge complex for them. I used to hate them, as well as the rest of my body, which led me to have an eating disorder at 13. I thought I was the only one in the world with breasts that looked like mine, and I sometimes heard people make derogatory comments about cone-shaped/triangular looking breasts, which made it even worse. The funny thing about them is that they look really different when I am cold or warm. When warm the areolas are big and puffy and the overall shape of the breast is triangular, and when I am cold they look fairly "normal" and then I like them, although of course they could always be bigger, rounder and so on, but those qualities feel like pure luxury to me. I've comfortably shown my breasts to guys when I've been cold but never when really warm. When I was younger I also (in sheer desperation) bought a Niplette to get less flat nipples, which made me a bit more comfortable. The triangular shape still remained a problem however. Somehow I was convinced they'd go rounder as I grew older, but it never really happened to the degree I hoped. My nipples also used to be very pale which I hated, yet have gone slightly darker with age.
It makes me so sad that I have spent a life literally hating such an intimate and beautiful part of my body and I am just now starting to accept and love the way my breasts look, appreciating their uniqueness and charm. Showing them in public such as at a sauna which I'd rather kill myself (I mean it) than doing when I was younger, I am even considering now, and really working towards being brave enough to do. If anyone judges my breasts it is really only their problem and I have to be strong enough in myself to not care about their opinions. I don't have a boyfriend but if I meet someone who really loves me he will love my breasts too.
The journey to learning to love my breasts just how they are, and removing my own judgement and shame, is truly uncovering so much hidden pain and emotion for me. It is a sick society that can make a little girl feel so horrible about the way she looks, hiding herself in fear and shame and feeling like she's not a real woman... If I'd see someone with what society calls "unattractive" or "abnormal" (yes, I've read that on a plastic surgery website about my breasts) happily and carelessly showing them off I'd say YOU GO GIRL, that is REAL strength and I admire you SO MUCH! Now I only have to be that girl myself! Thank you for a wonderful site! "
