Our Breasts

This blog is about breasts. It celebrates the beautiful diversity of breasts, of all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and races. 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 and all breasts are amazing. This blog aims to help people with breasts feel better about themselves, improve self-esteem, and show that they are normal.


This blog is inclusive of all cisgender women and trans* people with breasts, regardless of race, age or sexual preference.


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.


WARNING: If you have a blog that mainly contains and reblogs porn, DO NOT FOLLOW this blog and DO NOT REBLOG any posts from it. Otherwise you will be blocked and reported for harassment.

Email Submission: I’m 20 years old. These are my wonderful 38DD breasts. I have puffy nipples that get “goosebumps” when they’re hard and when they’re free they sag a little but overall I’m very happy with them.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I saw your awesome blog. So here are mine. I am a 32A. I just barely fill an A cup and only buy bras without padding, which is always difficult because a cute non-padded Demi lace bra in a B cup will come with a half-inch of padding in the A cup. I shop at specialty sites like Lula Lu for cute bras that come in size A or smaller.

I love my breasts but I have thick hairs that grow around my nipples that I am self conscious about. I have plucked them, shaved them or waxed them since I have been 17. The hairs come back ingrown and red and scabby. It has left scars. It makes me feel unattractive. But as I get older I understand we are all made differently. The images we are bombarded with daily on screens are not realistic, or even true images. They are altered to reflect unattainable perfection.

I am 36 years old, and only one person has ever said anything about my hairy nipples, and he was any idiot whose opinion was not to be considered. Most people don’t notice, and certainly don’t care; they are just glad to be there. Nobody has ever said anything negative about my tiny breasts, even if I am sometimes nervous about their lack. Usually I receive compliments.

Again, most people want all of you, your enthusiasm and your package of love and sexiness, not just one piece. I still struggle with body image, but the more I let go of that struggle, the better intimacy has become. Most people just want you to be there. And if anyone treats you otherwise, fuck them. :)

Love your breasts, ladies! Love your body. Be confident in your uniqueness. We are all beautiful, imperfect creatures. Just the way we are meant to be. Xoxoxo

Hey there! I’m a 32A and am in love with my petite boobs. A lot of people with small chests are self conscious about them, but little boobs rule! I’m not sure if you can tell, but I also have faint stretch marks which is crazy because I have always been so tiny. Stretch marks are totally normal. Embrace your bodies. Confidence is key, ladies!

Email Submission: These are my breasts. They have nourished three babies for at least 18 months, one for almost 4 years. Most of society has a skewed version of breasts in that they are strictly for sexual purposes, but I want others, especially other breastfeeding mothers, to know of my journey, and not to be ashamed to use your breasts for their intention. Breast is best!

Emma keep up the amazing empowerment of women and our bodies! Here’s to us! XO

Then please help me to help others too.

Lately I’m finding that I’m not able to spend enough time on my blogs - posting contributions, editing photos to to endure privacy, researching answers to questions and responding to the many emails and private messages I receive asking for my help, on top of the surveys and general research that I do. That all consumes a huge amount of my time - many hours per week - which of course I’m very happy to devote.

But I feel as though recent contributors to my sites are getting a raw deal from me and I’m letting them down, simply because I don’t have enough time. I’m passionate about helping so it’s heartbreaking to think some people aren’t getting the attention, advice, or simply some kind words of encouragement, that they need.

So I’ve decided to reduce my hours at work (I actually have a proper job and I’m not a full-time blogger!) to spend more time to running my sites.

But to do that I’m going to have to ask for your kind financial support through donations. 

The work that I’m doing through my sites is important, and I would ideally be able to spend a whole lot more time taking care of them. But a girl’s still gotta eat! So I’m asking you to help me to help you, and other people who are suffering from body image problems about their breasts and labia. If you or people that you care about have personally benefited from my sites, then please seriously consider helping to fund them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can make a donation through GoFundMe.

The alternative is that I’ll have to reduce the number of responses I give, or change the nature of the sites completely to be “contributions only”, with no Q&A at all - something I’d hate to see happen. So please help me out and if you can make a donation, it will be for the benefit of many, and I’ll be very grateful.

Thank you!

Emma

I'm 15 and my breasts are saggy already. they've always been that way and it makes me sad bc most girls my age have perky "youthful" looking breasts and mine look like a 30 year old's. I just want to be more comfortable in my body. is there anything that could help "lift" them without surgery? thanks. oh and I'm not overweight and my breasts aren't particularly large.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Your breasts look like a 15 year old’s. Breasts have a huge range of appearances regardless of age. I don’t know of any way of giving them a lift other than with a bra, but my best suggestion is to try to accept yourself as you are. Familiairising yourself with the range of “normal” can help - that’s what this site is about.

(I'm the 14 year old from earlier) I actually just got fitted today! Thank you, you made me feel better about myself! :)

So I'm 14, and I wear a size 34DDD, sometimes 36DDD (in us sizing) I'm a little embarrassed that my boobs are so big. Is it weird to have such large breasts at this age?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

You might be a bit ahead of the curve, but teenagers’ bodies develop throughout puberty at different rates, with some earlier than others. And breasts can be all different sizes and shapes. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Teens are often insecure and will find something to fret about, whether it’s worrying that you breasts are too big, or very commonly whether they are too small. The thing is, everyone’s different, and nobody’s breasts are better or worse than the next person’s.

You’re fine. But I would recommend that you get properly fitted for bras at least once a year through your teens, especially if the rest of your body is still growing.

…and the Large Labia Project! Doh! Anyway here’s a nice interview I did with The Student Journals :)

Emma

Have you taken my surveys yet?

Breasts - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SM3JN2G 

Labia - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LabiaSurvey2014

I’m running annual surveys into your breasts and labia - size, shape, appearance and your feelings about them. I use the results of these to help answer the questions I’m asked every day, essentially “am I normal?”

The surveys ask you to take physical measurements with a ruler, and answer questions about your breasts and vulvar appearance, sexuality, and feelings about these parts of your body.

Please allow yourself around 30 minutes to complete each survey, and be sure to do this where you will have the comfort and privacy to be naked.

You can do the surveys completely anonymously.

These surveys are inclusive and all people with breasts and labia are eligible to participate. No cisgender males though please.

There is so little research about breasts and especially vulva, so please help me build up some objective knowledge about our breasts and genitals. Everything learned will help to support people who feel insecure about their bodies, and you may learn something about yourself too.

Email Submission: Hi, I’m 18 (5’2; 235 lbs) and I haven’t worn a bra in about a month, but I used to wear a 34C, although I’m pretty sure that was too small.

I’ve always loved my breasts despite their sagging, stretch marks, and little hairs. I didn’t begin to think that there was something wrong with my breasts until a few months ago when I saw a video of a woman talking about her breast lift on YouTube. When she described her breasts, many of their features were similar to mine and she went on and on about how disgusting and ugly and unattractive they were… until she got her breast lift and they became the best things since sliced bread.

The video made me think that maybe my boobs aren’t as amazing as I always thought they were. I began to feel very self conscious of them and I began to watch breast lift surgery videos. I also looked up breast surgeons in my area, and I even thought about what bills I could eliminate to pay for the $5,000 surgery.

I was actually thinking about how I could convince my mom to go see a few surgeons with me when I stumbled upon your blog. Seeing all of these beautiful, natural, and imperfect breast reminded me that I honestly have no problem with the way my breasts look. To me, they’re perfect and I don’t need to waste $5,000 ‘improving’ something I’m 100% satisfied with!!

As an apology to my breasts for my temporary insanity, I decided to stop wearing bras so I could show them off in all their bouncy glory. The ‘girls’ and I have never been happier and more confident! ♡

Youre pretty fucking stupid... Its completely legal in all but 3 states to be completely topless... Learn before you complain
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

1. The world isn’t limited to the USA. I’m assuming that’s what you’re talking about. Get a dictionary and look up “insular”.

2. This is about social mores (you might want to look that word up too), sexism, equality and misogyny as much as the law. Whether it’s legal to be topless in any given location, and being able to do it without harassment, are two very different things.

3. Female nipples are still subject to censorship in the media and social media e.g. Facebook, unless you’re a nursing mother (recent victory for sanity there). Female nipples are still regarded as obscene. Male nipples aren’t.

I don’t care much for your abusive message. I think the real learning point in all of this is for you. You can leave now and don’t bother coming back. You aren’t welcome.

Im 18, weigh 110 and are 5,1. I have always felt insecure about how my breast look and started considering cosmetic surgery in seventh grade and I still feel like its the only option. They're saggy, very asymmetrical, and my nipples and areola are placed very low. It doesn't feel good to be 18 and having them look that way and I do not feel comfortable around sexual partners without a bra because I just think of them as highly unattractive and ugly. I wished I had prettier boobs, thats all.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Hi Emma, I just wanted to submit this photo of my breasts and embrace your blog. I believe I have smallish breasts with rather large nipples along with slight asymmetry of the nipples. I just wanted to show people that variations in other peoples breast but differences can also occur in each breast on an individuals body. Thank you for this blog Emma!

I'm 14 and found this blog from a scoliosis search I actually love it all the guys my age are obsessed with porn and stereotypical hot girls I wish they could see this and understand why real women look like 😘 ( . ) ( . )
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

I’m glad you found your way here. I wish everybody could understand and appreciate body diversity and starting young, with proper structured education about it at school, would be ideal. Unfortunately that’s pretty rare.
