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, so I developed at a really young age, around 10 I was already a 32B, and was so insecure about it that I would wear 3 sports bras ontop of eachother to flatten them. Anyways, fast forward to today, I am a 32D with inverted nipples and what I would consider to be natural "symmastia," where I can my cleavage does not rest against my ribs and connects my breasts. I'm assuming this is from squishing my breasts as I grew... but I just was wondering if anyone else had this? I hate it!

Ok so this is kind of weird but I'm 16 and I don't have nipples? Like I read about it and it's actually a thing like other people don't have any either but I'm just so uncomfortable about it and it feels not normal
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

From what I’ve read you may have what’s called athelia, which is the total absence of the nipple and areolae. If that describes you then there could be other related health issues and you really should see your doctor.

If you have nipples and areolae, but your nipples are kind of inside your breast, known as inverted nipples, then that’s fairly common and nothing to worry about.

Email Submission: 19, 5’6, around 200 pounds. Proud of my body and my breasts :) 38 DD-DDD (depending on store)

I’ve always had problems with my self esteem and hated my body and even got to the poor where I was cutting my hips and thighs :(.

My first boyfriend and I were together for only a few months but in those short few months he made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world he loved my body loved my breasts which was one of my biggest insecurities. I’ve had a few more boyfriends since him and I find that I can’t get as comfortable as I was was with him but I thank him so much for making me love my body.

Hi Emma, I’m 16 so I can’t submit just yet, but I look forward to doing so in 2 years! ;)

Anyway, I was a super late bloomer (I only started growing boobs last year), and was totally flat chested through out all of middle school. In 6th grade, I was bullied a LOT for being flat chested and it really hurt my self esteem. I thought I was worthless and ugly and that no one would ever like me. Luckily, I met my best friend in 7th grade and she stood up for me and the bullies stopped. But I was still really insecure. It didn’t help that she was drop-dead gorgeous and had DDs in 7th grade. She helped me through the rest of middle school and helped me get through the bulk of my insecurities. If I hadn’t met her, I don’t think I’d be here today. :( 

By the middle of freshman year, I had finally accepted my breasts, thanks to my best friend, and also that they actually started growing (they were a 32A by last summer). A lot of people would call 32A “flat,” but I was just grateful that they started growing, I didn’t care that they were smaller than average.

I haven’t gotten my size checked since last summer, which I probably should do soon because I definitely grew. But thanks to your blog, and looking at all the pictures of beautiful small breasts, I’ve grown to love mine! They are awesome and I no longer worry what people will think when they see my breasts. I’ve never shown them to anybody–just because before I was too scared, and since then I just haven’t had the opportunity–but I kinda look forward to sharing them with someone, because they’re cute and sexy and I’m proud of them. 

Thank you so so so so much for this blog. It really helped me finally love my breasts. And it helped me realize that not all breasts are huge globes of perfection. Everyone’s breasts are different and beautiful and unique! And that’s what makes them each so special.

xoxo

Email Submission:19 years old, 8FF - 6G.

I’ve submitted before, and thought I’d do so again. In my last post, which was maybe a year or so ago, I was having a whine about how I hate my boobs, they’re too big, they’re saggy, they’re heavy, they’re asymmetric, they swell a whole CUP SIZE during my period dear god so painful, I want a breast reduction, etc
A little has changed in my mindset, about my breasts and my body in general. I no longer want a breast reduction - I think in my desperation to “fix” my body, the fact that I would quite literally have parts of me severed off did not really occur to me. I spent so long crying, legit crying, that I had been one of the unfortunate ones. I’d spend hours just standing in front of a mirror and critiquing myself, taking pictures (unflattering ones) and pointing out my flaws. I didn’t think it was fair that at 18, my breasts did not exactly scream “youthful”. I wasn’t wearing the right bra size (10E/F) either so that probably didn’t help things. I’m not really too sure what has changed now - whether I’ve accepted my body for the way that it is or if I’m just too terrified of surgically reducing their size - but I’m okay. I don’t look at my boobs and want to cry anymore. Yes, they’re incredibly heavy, and I am small (52-ish kilos and 154cm tall) so they are very prominent and don’t really do me many favours in the way of neck/ back pain. I need to invest in a couple more bras to wear during period week because they become enormous and so, so heavy! The fullness makes them quite pretty though, and that I appreciate, despite the breast tenderness. But they’re mine, you know? I’ve been given my body, and this is the body that I have to live with. I can’t change their size, shape, symmetry any more than I can change the fact that they belong to me.
 
My breasts are a huge (duh) part of me, but they don’t define me. So maybe some of you ladies can think of it that way too? Don’t let your boobs get you down, they’re not worth the tears  
Again, Emma you’re a doll. Love what you’re doing here xx”

Email Submission:I am extremely self conscious of my boobs. I took these pictures and it further horrified my reality.

I come from a family of large breasted women but also chunky women. I am 18 years old, and weigh 125lbs. This is significantly smaller than the rest of the women in my family. My right boob is a D and my left is more like an A. When I go bra shopping I buy a 32C if I can find it but mostly I buy 34Bs and safety pin the band. The two bras the purple cheetah and the red are both a 34B but the red is a bombshell that adds 2 cups.

Luckily I have found a man that loves me for who I am and is even helping me overcome my fear.

This site is great and I want to help others like me who do not have pornstar boobs. Maybe I might not get a boob job thanks to you.”

To all of the women who worry about sexual partners seeing their breasts... self consciousness is normal, but do you really want to be with someone who will judge you based on the shape/size/color/etc. of your breasts? I hope not. Someone like that is not worth your time.

Emma, I read the previous anon questions about 'breasts out' and I just have something quick to say. I agree agree that if a man looks at breasts sexually that is his problem and not the woman's. However, I think it is important for women to realize that if they go topless in public they will inevitably be viewed this way by men. And women should decide whether or not they are okay with that. Some may be, and some may not be. Either is fine, but it is something we should all keep in mind.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Why does it matter what men would think?

Oh that’s right, I forgot, we live in a sexist rape-culture, so to help men control their urges women need to be deprived (self-deprived or imposed) of the same rights that men enjoy.

Here’s an idea, instead of people with breasts having to make excuses for the sexism we have to suffer, how about men start accepting some responsibility, self-control and showing some respect?

Most men do control themselves and it’s a relatively small number of criminals who don’t. But all men enjoy the benefits of the sexist culture they live in (knowingly or otherwise). Women are regarded as being a “pair of tits and a cunt on legs” whether they are naked or dressed. Having the equal right to expose ones nipples isn’t going to change that. This isn’t about men. It’s about equal rights for people with breasts.

Email Submission:Hi Emma! I’m 18 and I’ve always been self-conscious of my breasts. I’ve grown to be okay with them but sometimes I still don’t like them at all. My right breast is larger in every way compared to the left and I’m extremely self-conscious of any sexual partner seeing them. I’m so happy that you have this blog though. It’s made me realize that lots of women have similar thoughts about their breasts that I have about mine even though theirs are all beautiful.”


And yours are beautiful too! I hope that you can soon see that now that your breasts are on my site as well. Sometimes it takes a bit of distance and objectivity to see what others can see.

Asymmetry is extremely common, and from this picture yours is hardly noticeable.

Don’t worry about what a sexual partner will think. I can guarantee you they will love them, because, well, they are awesome and gorgeous.

I’m glad you were brave enough to bare - I think it will help you out.

I have always been insecure with and actually despised my entire body, but especially my breasts. While they are relatively small (34C), the thing I hate the most about them is that I have "puffy areola". I can actually love my boobs when my nipples are erect but otherwise, I hate them so much I could sob for hours about it. Just wondering if anyone else experiences this and/or has gotten it "fixed" and what they think about it...(I'm 22 btw) Love the blog!!
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

I’m just going to ask you some questions for now:

- What’s wrong with puffy areolae?
- Why do you hate them so much?
- Why do you think you feel that way?
- What influences are driving your hatred for your breasts?
- Are those influences valid?
- If someone said something about them in the past, would you take their advice or consider their opinion valid for anything else in your life? eg financial advice?
- Appearance aside, how do they feel?
- What’s more important, how they feel or how they look?
- Who defines what is beautiful about breasts, nipples and areolae?
- Do they have the right to do that?

I’d really like you to think about this and reply if you’re able.

I'm all for equality. But on what level do you want "breasts out"? I mean in the media? On the streets? You know, you can say male and female breasts are equal, but female ones are sexual organs. A guy can get hard (even get off) looking at them. That is not a thing to forget. And for all women who fight for this kind of equality, there is also as much who likes not to show their breasts to anyone
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

If a guy gets hard looking at a topless woman that’s his problem, not hers. If a man can’t control his urges then he needs to see a psychiatrist. Nipples are nipples, regardless of gender.

You’re so wrong; breasts are no more sexual organs than earlobes. They are there to feed babies. They are heavily sexualised (by sexist society), and yes they are erogenous, but so are other non-obscene and readily visible parts of the body, like those earlobes. By your logic mouths are sexual organs too. Have you ever sucked on a partner’s genitals? Ever talked dirty? Should we all be wearing gags? Male nipples are just as erogenous as female, and yet it’s generally ok for a guy to expose his, show them on Facebook etc, but for some reason women’s are obscene. Why? Why is it acceptable to show every other square cm of female breast skin but not the areolae and nipple? Why are they obscene? Why do we need protection from them? Are they dangerous? Is it because men can’t control their penises and their sexual and/or violent urges?

If people don’t want to show their breasts or any part of their body, then great. That’s their right. But why isn’t it equally other people’s right to walk down the street with their breasts out? I’m not saying that people of any gender should go topless, and there are practical reasons not to, but I absolutely support their right to do so. If it’s socially acceptable for a man to take off his shirt on a hot day why can’t a woman? It defies all logic. Anywhere and any time that it’s acceptable for a man to expose his nipples is equally appropriate for a woman to do it too.

FYI most local authorities controlling beaches in Australia either allow it outright or tolerate it without drama. In most places throughout Europe this is totally a non-issue, as Europeans in general are far broader-minded when it comes to bodies and nudity. It’s legal to be topless in Canada. And FYI it’s legal in many cities throughout the US, including New York City for a woman to walk down the street topless. But yet the social stigma remains.

Frankly after running my blogs for a couple of years I am seriously becoming an advocate of nudism. If we all just walked around naked all this body shaming paranoia and damaging anxiety about whether this is too big?, or is this too small?, or is this too droopy?, or what will teen boys think?, or am I abnormal? would all go away. We could see each other for the skin machines that we are and get on with being decent human beings and interact on a person-to-person level without all the bullshit hang ups about our bodies.

Hi Emma, I'm 22 and weigh around 160 pounds and I'm 5'6". So I'm kinda chunky and have been losing weight, but I'm worried about what will happen to my breasts. They're already rather saggy. I usually wear a D cup. When I lose weight, I'm worried they're going to be even more saggy and less "full" to boot.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

And you know what, if that does happen your breasts will still be the beautiful, sexual, sensual, fun, feminine and wonderful things that they are now. Because quite frankly all boobs are awesome and unique.

Emma

Email Submission: “20 years old, 5’4”, around 100-110 pounds. 

I mostly wear 32 A, sometimes 30-32 B. A cups are usually a bit too small, B cups on the other hand gape a little, but I do what I can. I avoid heavily padded bras and often wear only bralettes.

In general I am very satisfied with the way my breasts are. Sometimes I wish they were larger. Sometimes I wish they weren’t so far apart because it’s kinda hard to find a really comfortable bra. But what matters most to me is that they bring pleasure to me, and I don’t care what anyone else says.”

Asker Anonymous Asks:
if one loses weight, do ones breasts also decrease in size?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

That’s how it works for me! If I put any weight on it’s all bum, thighs and belly. If I lose it, it’s from my boobs lol. In reality it’s a bit more evenly spread, but yes, breast size can and does fluctuate with weight changes.
