Our Breasts

This blog is by people with breasts, for people with breasts. This blog is inclusive of all people with breasts, regardless of gender. It celebrates the beautiful diversity of breasts, of all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and races. Breasts are such an important and integral part of what makes us feel beautiful and sexual. By showing how all breasts are different, and uniquely special, we will be able to challenge the beliefs around what makes breasts beautiful. There is no single standard for breast beauty! By sharing photos we are demonstrating how every breast is different, and in turn, we will be able to help people with breasts feel better about themselves, improve self-esteem, and show that yes, you are normal.


NOTE: This blog shows photos depicting nudity in a non-sexual setting, and contains written content with adult themes. Photo submissions showing nudity are to be from people 18+ only.

Hi, Emma. I am 15, and most of the people I've been intimate with have "made fun of me" because of my breasts. One of my breasts is a B cup while the other is a C, and one of my nipples are a light pink color while the other is a light purple.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve encountered some really insensitive arseholes. That’s the danger of being sexually active at a young age when you’re getting naked with people who don’t have the maturity to understand what normal anatomy is really like, and how their stupid words can be really cutting.

There’s nothing wrong with you. Breast asymmetry is normal, even when you’re talking over a cup size in difference. I appreciate that it’s an annoying pain in the butt, getting bras to fit properly (fit for the C cup and pad out the B cup). Having different coloured nipples and areolae aren’t a problem,and in fact sound really pretty.

The only thing you need to work on is being more selective with the people you are sexual with. I always recommend getting to know and trust the person first, so you greatly lower the risk that you expose yourself to people who just aren’t worth your time. Random hook ups aren’t the way to go.

My blogs have simple needs, but they do have annual expenses including maintaining URLs, subscription fees for running surveys, research, website layout, artwork etc. Plus I devote many hours to my sites, often at the expense of my day job and my pay!

To help keep them running, and providing the level of support and information that many people have come to rely upon, I’m asking for small donations from the many visitors and contributors to the site. All monies raised will be applied directly to help continue the work of Our Breasts and the Large Labia Project.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I’m a big fan of both of your blogs. You have no idea how much you have helped me. It took me a long time to get the courage to submit these and I’m real nervous about it. I have an eating disorder, but I’m recovering. I read another person say in a post she had been taking photos of herself which helped her, and I thought ‘I’ve been doing that too’. I have been taking photos of myself for a few months now and looking at my vagina like you said to do in another post - my labia are small but I still used to feel insecure you know? I might submit my vagina soon.

You can see my body change in some of these photos and I like my breasts when I’m at a healthier weight as I now am in the last photo. They are not symmetrical and my nipples are kind of funny but I actually don’t mind that. I’m happy to share and I’m kind of feeling proud of my breasts now. My girlfriend says they are beautiful and I can now believe her without thinking she is just saying that to make me feel better.

Thank you Emma for everything you do for us girls. You are my hero in so many ways. I owe you so much <3

To the hypothyroidism anon: I have it too, all the women in my mom's side have it, and it caused my secondary amenorrhea. If you have any concerns about your reproductive health at all PLEASE go see planned parenthood or a similar gynecologist. Don't wait for almost two years like I did
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Do you menstruate? 

Would you be willing to help me with some research into how vulvas change appearance during the menstrual cycle?

Would you photograph your vulva every day of your cycle, and write a short diary entry documenting any changes? 

If this is you, then please write to me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com and I’ll tell you everything you need to know to participate.

I hope to hear from you soon.

I’m putting together an art-nude photography project and am actively seeking people who have vulvas and breasts to participate. This will high quality, highly detailed, and sometimes explicit but non-sexual photographs of your body and individual body parts, including breasts and vulva. As with the broad theme of my blogs this will be about showing the beauty, intricacy and diversity of our bodies.

If you’re over 18, interested and would like to find out more, please send me an email in confidence to largelabiaproject@gmail.com.

I have had a white discharge from my nipples for a while now, it only comes out if I squeeze my nipples. But thanks to the link you posted I realized it is probably because I suffer from Hypothyroidism. I was a bit worried but if that is a normal reason it has put my mind at ease.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

I’m glad to hear that. If anything changes and you’re worried then see your doctor for peace of mind.

I'm 14 and I'm a 32a. It's really really annoying because all my friends are like c cups. Both my sisters and my mom had big boobs when they were my age, but I'm just small.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

You’re only 14 and breasts can continue to grow into your late teens and early 20s. But you may have finished growing, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Smaller breasts are awesome, and just as beautiful, feminine, attractive and normal as any other size. You really don’t need to want for anything else. Whatever size your breasts are they are perfect :)

I’m creating some infographics and I want to include paintings / illustrations of vulvas and breasts that are just like this style - see below.

I am curious about something that has been cause for so much embarrassment for me. What I would like to know is how many women have issues with hair around their nipples. In my case, it started small, just a few coarse dark hairs cropped up during pregnancy with my son. Over the past decade, it's gotten increasingly worse. Now there are over a dozen around each. I tweeze them now, because it's humiliating in intimate situations to have a man suck on them if they're hairy. Is this common?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Yes it’s very common. One of the statistics from my large recent survey into breast appearance (results to be published soon) is that 49% of respondents said they had dark hair on their areolae (44% some, 5% many). So essentially half of all people with breasts have dark hair.

How is that an “issue” then, and how can you be humiliated by something that half the breast-owning population has? It’s like asking whether people have issues from having blue eyes. It’s normal! My areolae are hairy. 

Have you ever sucked on a man’s hairy nipple? Fair’s fair. What’s the big deal? If a guy has a problem with it, well that’s his problem.

Wow that’s deep, holy shit

Yep. Yet girls still allow society to push them around.

I keep hearing stuff talking about how sleeping on your stomach can change your breast shape, like... misshape them or something? I sleep on my stomach and do indeed have rather... saggy boobs. I guess I'm a little concerned and hoping maybe it's just some people being stupid?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

It’s a myth. Breast sagging can be caused by a number of things, often in combination, including loss of skin elasticity often caused by smoking cigarettes, weight loss, heavy breasts, bouncing from exercise and pregnancy, though breastfeeding is not a factor. Sleeping face down will not cause your breasts to sag. That involves compression forces much like a compressive sports bra.

Email Submission: I’ve attached some photos you might want to use on your blogs. One of my breasts sits lower than the other. I think I’m the only person who notices. My nipples and boobs are also really veiny. I’m not sure why haha. I’ve recently taken my nipple piercing out however because it got pierced wrong and hadn’t healed after 4 months.

Beause I was the youngest in the family with two older sisters I thought I would never get boobs. I now have the biggest in the family. And yes I love my boobs. I’m a size 12E.

I’m putting together an art-nude photography project and am actively seeking people who have breasts and vulvas to participate.

This will high quality, highly detailed, and sometimes explicit but non-sexual photographs of your body and individual body parts, including your breasts and your vulva. As with the broad theme of my blogs this will be about showing the beauty, intricacy and diversity of our bodies.
