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.

Email Submission:I am sending my photo to show that some women like me have large areolae. At 34, I am very self-conscious about my body. My areolae are large and take up my whole breast and they point down now due to age and gravity. I am also overweight and have always been self-conscious of my body.

Thanks for your blogs about women’s bodies. Hopefully, they will accept what God gave them and not get plastic surgery to conform to societal views of beauty.”

This is important.

Just thought I'd say something about the frequent relationship problem questions. Girls, if a guy doesn't like your breasts, TOO BAD FOR HIM! You deserve better. Don't settle for less because you're insecure about your body and feel no one else will want you. Could you truly be happy with someone you love who hates a certain part of you? Don't settle for immature idiots or perverts. If they don't like your body, get rid of them. Don't trust them. Your body deserves to be worshipped. Believe me!

Anonymous Submission: “Hello, I’m a 23 year old single female. I have no children. I hate my boobs, i hate how small they are, how far apart they are, and the fact that my areola is huge. I’m so self conscious about them that i have never shown them to anyone before.. this.”

Email Submission:Hi, I’ve ALWAYS been uncomfortable with my body. I have small breasts and large labia, but those weren’t the things about my body I hated..until people began making comments about them. I’ve been told my breasts as too small, my nipples are too big, my labia too large or not normal.

I adore my husband. He was a virgin when we got married, but had seen porn and been to strip clubs. When he saw my labia for the first time (which was after we were married) he made a very ignorant comment about my labia. I (18 at the time, now 20) had been with other men before him, and he attributed my labia appearance to having sex ‘so many times’ and he expected that I would be ‘loose’. That hurt my ego. I am now VERY self conscious because of that. I don’t know how to feel better. I want labiaplasty and a breast augmentation. Help?”


I’m glad that you were brave enough to share your photos and story, because I can assure you, as the many thousands of site visitors would too, that your breasts, nipples and labia are not only normal, but also very attractive and desirable.

It’s such a shame that your confidence was harmed by the person who you should be most able to trust, and who should be more sensitive to your feelings. I don’t know what you can do about that other than to make sure he’s aware of how he’s hurt you.

And he hurt you because he was ignorant about normal anatomy. Large labia have absolutely NOTHING to do with the amount of sex you have? Does he have a huge penis from his years of masturbation? Seriously, that attitude is so fucking stupid. If you read this post you’ll see where it all started. 

Why some people think having large labia means you’re a slut - historical and cultural background into why some people think large labia = loose and promiscuous. 

Why this idiotic idea still persists today is testament to the stupidity and gullibility of human beings.

Please show him both of my www.largelabiaproject.org and www.ourbreasts.tumblr.com sites and hopefully he’ll not only start to realise the huge diversity that exists with genital anatomy, but also the amazing pain and anxiety that people with breasts and vulva feel about themselves. It might open his eyes and change his opinion.

There is no standard for perfection or beauty when it comes to bodies. Anyone who says so is either part of, or impressionable enough to believe in the profit-driven lies of the fashion, cosmetics, media and surgical industries. Enough of the mini-rant, but seriously who is to say that one person’s body is more attractive, normal or perfect than any other? Your breasts and vulva are perfect for you, and are designed exactly the way they were supposed to be for your body. You are no more or less wonderful than anyone else.

You do not need breast augmentation surgery. You do not need labiaplasty. And to do that to your body would be a crime against nature. You’re beautiful just the way you are. Spend the $10,000 to $20,000 you would need to spend on surgery for that on a holiday, enrol in a course to boost your self-esteem, or even some couples counselling.

I love my breasts. They are a nice firm 30-32 D. Well one is. The problem is that my left breast is significantly larger (at least a whole cup size) than the right. I don't know what to do, as it is actually very noticeable, and I feel so self conscious and like my only option might be future surgery :(
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Breast asymmetry is totally normal. Preliminary results from my breast survey show that almost exactly 50% of people have asymmetric breasts, and 24% (1 in 5 people with boobs) have a difference of 1 cup size or more. It may be noticeable but you’re far from being alone. Surgery is so unnecessary. But of course it’s your body, but in my opinion you’re absolutely fine.

Have you taken my breast survey yet?

I have created an extensive survey into breast appearance and attitudes of their owners towards them. The survey is anonymous. It’s inclusive of people with breasts, though it is not open to cisgender males (no manboobs” please).

Here is the survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SM3JN2G

It is extensive, and long, and will take you around 30 minutes to complete, including measuring the size of your nipples and areolae. So be sure to do it where you’ll have the privacy to take off your top and get your girls out. Not at work! Unless maybe you’re a stripper :)

If you have breasts, please take the survey. And while you’re at it, please share this link far and wide, among friends, family, Tumblr and Facebook, and help my research.

I love my freckles, and even the little hairs I get around my right nipple. Though I don’t think you can see them in the photo. I wanted to contribute to this blog, because even though on my bad days I consider getting a mastectomy, I still have good days where I love my breasts!”

I feel like the only person with small nipples and it makes me feel really self concious All the time, I was wondering if it's normal or not and it makes me feel really bad about my breasts
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Yes it’s normal, and you’re definitely not alone. The results of my breasts survey, when published, will quantify that for you.

I'm 17 & therefore can't submit a photo of my breasts, but they are a 34B and I have smaller areolae. I used to be self conscious of my breasts because a lot of my friends are C's and above (3 of my friends are at least double D'S) but I realized my breasts fit me nicely because I am rather small myself. I do wear push up bras but that's mostly because 1)they sell more push-ups than regulars in my size & 2) I like the way they make my breasts look. But I wear them for myself & not someone else

I'm Asian and I'm pretty light skinned, one of my insecurity are my nipples. They seem too dark. They don't even look pink they look like dark brown. And once I had a guy comment on my nipples saying it was too dark, that started my insecurities. Also my friend and I were watching a show and it showed a girl nipple. She commented that dark nipples are ugly and only pink nipples are nice. That's when I started to feel embarrassed about my nipples.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Nipples are supposed to be dark brown. And light brown. And pink. If they were green then you’d have something to worry about. But brown is perfectly normal. And attractive, if for no other reason than they are nipples! And all nipples are fucking awesome!

Sorry to say it but that guy and your girl friend need to come to grips with normal anatomy. And seriously your friend is entitled to her opinion - as am I - she’s an idiot.
