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.

Anonymous Submission:Hi! I love your website! I discovered it months ago but just decided to submit for the first time! So here are some pictures of my breasts. I’ve really accepted them since being in a serious and confident relationship, for about the past 3 years. They are small and asymmetrical but now I’m ok with that!”

I'm 16, 160 pounds and a 36DD. I'm uncomfortable wearing anything but a sweater because I know that people are staring at my breasts and judging me. Also, on my right breast, there's a second nipple. It's reasonably smaller then the other one, and lower down, but perks up just like the other one and I don't know if that's normal? I've never heard about anyone else having one.

Unfortunately some people will form opinions about you because of how you look, including your breast size. It’s utterly ridiculous though, and I feel for you if you believe that you need to cover yourself up because of other people’s stupidity.

Third nipples (supernumerary nipples) can appear anywhere along what’s called the “milk line” (see pic below). They can fully functioning nipples, as yours may be, or just for appearance. About 2% of women and 5% of men have them, including Lily Allen, Joanna Krupa, Carrie Underwood, Bradley Cooper and Harry Styles.

Hi, thank you so much for this feel good project !

Here are my breasts (I don’t know my US bra size, in France it’s 85D), I hated since they popped out when I wan 10, I already though they were shaggy and that the aureola was too big… and I also had a lot of critisisme from children of my age because I was the only one to have a big chest already.

Thanks to projects like yours I have a new look on things because I no longer see only perfect percky tits like everywhere in the media, so it makes me feel so much more normal and lovable !

I used to wear bras even if it was such a discomfort for me, just to give the illusion I did not have the breasts I have, now I stopped because it feels like such a refief and I don’t think it is a great help to make them shagg less, they are the way they are, and I feel better without a bra.

I still think they are shaggy and bad looking but now I love the rest of my body, I love my body hair and I find it sexy when they show like on this picture, I love almost everything about me, but my breasts are still making me very serf conscious… I’m working on it and hope that some day I will see the beauty in them and maybe show them to my lover(s)… 


Thank you again :)

I'm 17 and I wear a 32B. I've hated my breasts since I first started growing when I was ten. They're uneven and really small. I have hips which make them look even smaller. All my friends have much bigger breasts which of course makes me feel worse. It wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't surrounded by so many immature guys who talk about breasts all the time. I want someone who likes me AND my boobs. But I find that unlikely.

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…

Where can we submit if we are on mobile like do you have any other social media
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

The most sure fire way is to email me at ourbreasts@gmail.com. You can submit using the Tumblr app, and on the mobile site, but it seems dependent on your device platform. Just email me and I’ll post it anonymously.

And no, this is the only site/platform for The OurBreasts blog.

I feel like my breasts are very different from most womens. I have a large underboob even though my breasts are firm. When my nipples are soft, they are very large and flesh toned. When hard, they are small and perky. I have gotten to the point where I will not let anyone see my breasts without hardening my nipples prior to it. Also, one nipple looks far different than the other when erect. The left looks much larger than the right and I am highly insecure of this..
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

There are millions upon millions of different shapes and sizes of breasts, and while you’re unique, you’ll also find you’re far from alone, with every single thing you’ve said. Your breasts sound really cool and fantastic - if for no other reason than they are boobs, which are awesome by definition!

But it’s hard to be objective about yourself, and love your body, when you’ve had that voice inside your head niggling and picking on every little perceived flaw. Being on this site can help you view your breasts with more objectivity, and see just how different, but still the same, all of our breasts are. Imagine seeing your breasts here, among so many others. Would they look just as fine as all the others, if they looked as though they belonged to someone else? Do you imagine that trying to think objectively will help you?

Email Submission: “Hi Emma! I hate my breasts. I think they’re too small for my build and I don’t like how they look at all. I’m 5’7”, 190lbs, and a 38B. Maybe losing weight might help me think they’re more normal. My boyfriend says their a perfect handful but I just think they’re so disproportional.

My tan lines make me laugh, though. I’ve got a wicked sunburn on my back and lightly over my shoulders.”

Can I email a photo of my breasts to you so I don't have to go on and off mobile?

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 bodes, and you may learn something about yourself too.

Does bra size change when you lose weight?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

It sure can, both with band size and cup size. If you lose weight and have less fat distributed around your chest, but more likely if you lose breast volume with weight loss, then definitely get yourself fitted again for some new bras.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
I'm 15 and my size is 34a. This morning my breasts looked smaller than usual yet rounder and not as perky as before. What could this mean?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Breasts can change size depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle. That’s probably all it is. Emma

Is it ok to send a submission where I'm not fully naked? I would love to contribute to this blog but don't feel comfortable posting a picture in which I'm fully exposed.

Yes of course. Emma

End Female Genital Mutilation
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) happens primarily in Africa, in particular in North-Eastern, Eastern and Western Africa. However, it also takes place in the Middle East, in South-East Asia – and also among immigrants in Europe and the USA.
According to estimates by the World Health Organisation (WHO) more than 125 million girls and women alive today have been cut in the 29 countries where FGM is concentrated, and that in total 150 million women are affected by FGM world-wide.
In Europe, the number of mutilated women or girls and women threatened by FGM amounts up to 500,000, mainly immigrants who brought this practice with them when they left their home countries.
In the USA in 2000, the African Women’s Health Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital estimated that 227,887 women and girls had been at risk of being subjected to FGM in the USA that year. 
Help do something about it. Sign this petition to develop a strategic response to FGM in the USA, which will hopefully have influence worldwide.
