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. I'm wondering if my breast unevenness is normal.. My right breast (DD) is at least 2 cup sizes (maybe more) larger than my left, and I'm really self conscious about it. I add extra padding to swim suits and sports bras and I can't even imagine going braless ever. Is that size difference normal or should I get them checked out for some sort of deformity? I get so self conscious in bed because guys have mentioned the difference to me.

Most people have some degree of asymmetry. That’s pretty much the normal state. I’ll soon be publishing the results of my recent survey into breast size and appearance and will be able to give you a better idea then. My gut feel is that a difference of 2 cup sizes is at the larger end of the scale, but you don’t have a deformity.

Padding is a good way to make clothes fit better. Given that asymmetry is the more common way for breasts to be it’s a shame that clothing and bra manufacturers don’t recognise it and cater for what people with breasts actually need.

There’s no reason to feel self-conscious about what guys say. Were they negative comments, or were they just mentioning it? I can’t imagine it stopped them, ah, playing with them lol. If guys are ever being dicks, and saying negative things, then kick them out, and comment on their balls being uneven sizes (which by the way, is the norm too).

considering having a breast reduction... Everyone says I'm mad and I should be grateful for my boobs, but I feel so insecure. I've recently been scouted for a modelling agency and I'm worried my boobs will be the thing to let me down. I'm 5'9 and 125lbs and my size is 30 DD I'm worried they look ridiculously out of proportion to my body. I also get so much unwanted attention from dirty boys making comments in clubs and I can't wear low cut tops like friends or apparently I'm 'asking for it' :(

To the 18 year old 42D email submission: you made me smile! If I didn't know any better I would have thought someone stole pics of me (but I don't take pics of my breasts because I'm very self conscious of them too). But knowing that there is at least one person in the world with breasts like mine makes me feel good! And I know it shouldn't matter but if it helps you at all, I'm older (37), and have been with my fair share of men and I never had one that didn't love to play with them :)

Email Submission: I am 18 years old, I am a size 42D. I have always been very self-conscious about my boobs. The areoles are large, and low, and my nipples have Montgomery glands on them. Sometimes, if I squeeze my nipples, solid white stuff comes out. Is that normal? My boobs are very oddly shaped and far apart. They are just disgusting in general. In my opinion. When I have enough money, I want to get nipple reconstruction and implants.

Thanks for contributing. It’s hard to see beauty in our own bodies. It’s like we’re programmed to find faults (real or imagined) and compare ourselves to unrealistic and unattainable beauty ideals. many people would think that your breasts are perfect just the way they are. It’s a shame that you can’t see that in yourself. It’s your body though and you have every right to do whatever you like with it.

Perhaps before you arrange surgery spend a few moments questioning where your ideas about breast beauty come from, ad then challenge whether they are valid, reliable, and worth surgically altering your body for.

This is a useful article on nipple discharge. It’s a good idea to see a doctor about that to work out what’s causing it.

Hi Emma, thank you so much for your blog and for all help and consideration you bring to women :) i have a small problem: since two weeks I noticed that my left breast hurts a bit. It lasts less than one our and the pain increases when I touch my breast with my hand. Weird, isn't it? Now I am abroad on holidays but as soon as I come back home I see a doctor. I wanted to know if other women suffer from this?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Thanks for your kind words.

Yes it’s a good idea to get yourself checked out. I know my breasts hurt before I get my period, so I wonder if it could be related to your cycle. But as I’m not a medical professional I shouldn’t speculate. If it’s only happening lately then it’s definitely worth checking out.

Hey, Emma, there're a lot of photos in your blog and all boobs are really beautiful, but my ones very differ from all the pictures here. They are quite ordinary but my nipples are not flat but a little puffy. I only once saw such nipples on the internet and some girls commented that it looks ugly. So I feel ugly and conscious. Maybe your subscribers could say if such nipples scare them and if it is really so rare? Sorry for my broken english.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Do you mean puffy nipples, sort of like these? http://ourbreasts.org/tagged/puffy%20nipples They aren’t that unusual at all, and very attractive. Why do you care what some girls say? Their opinions are pretty irrelevant. Do you know them, or like them, or value their opinion? Why care what they say about your normal breasts?


Email Submission: I’m 18 and 32DD I’ve always been really self-conscious of my boobs and been quite anxious to take my bra off. But your blog has shown me that all boobs are beautiful and nothing to be ashamed of.

Hello again!

I’ve submitted before and I just wanted to show everyone how much breasts and the body can change in a year!

This was me last year. 18 years old and a 34DDD/32G

And here I am today, 19 years old and a 34G/32H

This has a lot to do with the fact that I am on birth control and with the fact that I gained a little bit of weight. (5-10 pounds roughly)

I also wanted to post in order to show women that no matter what your breasts look like they’re beautiful and unique.

And that even though I am a 32H properly measured I don’t look anywhere near that big, that sounds horribly huge doesn’t it? Well it’s not ladies! It’s the same cup size as a 34G/36DDD/38DD/40D and so on

The point is make sure you all get measured and fitted. I actually went to a VS the other day and for ONCE they measured me a bit better. The girl came in giving me 36DDD and 38DDDs. She eventually told me, honestly, that I would have to shop at a dillards or macy’s, somewhere where they sell much larger cups and smaller bands.

Its a good thing for women to get measured constantly throughout their life because if you’re constantly wearing the wrong size you’re possibly putting yourself in dangerous situations. I have back problems because I neglected to wear the right size for so long. Do yourselves a favor and your breasts and get measured and fitted. You’ll feel a relief off your shoulders ^-^. Too many women on who have posted wear bras that are far too small to accommodate their busts!

I will continue to post every year on this blog because it is the best blog I’ve ever come across. Thank you for keeping this blog updated and constant. 

Have a good day everyone!


Hug your loved ones. Ask if they’re okay. Find them help if they need it. Smiles don’t = “I’m okay”. Don’t expect them to go it alone.

RIP Robin.  Thanks for all the laughs.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I like my breasts. I did undergo surgery to have them reduced though. The procedure was done in Canada and they left me with scars and disfigured. But no worries, my man adores them and bottom line is that they were just too huge and heavy. I’m 5’2” and 110lbs and had 34DD. They were tearing my little back apart. Much better now.

Somebody with an A cup just told me that my boobs are "saggy" but in reality C cup breasts aren't going to be as perky as an A cup and it really hurt my feelings...what should I do?

Ignore it. Life’s too short to worry about what stupid and rude people say.

I just saw your anon post about freeing the nipples, and there is nothing that I would love more than to just let my boobs free, but unfortunately, my breasts are two completely different sizes (they are completely normal breasts, and i am very leery to get them evened out because I really don't want sacks of plastic in my body indefinitely). Can you please do a shout out to the woman who are have uneven/missing breasts? There are more than you think, and it's a daily struggle for more of us.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

I think you just did that shout out yourself =D


Submission: I’ve come along away in accepting them. Sometimes they’re sexy sometimes they’re eh. But today they are mine so they’re beautiful.

They are beautiful every day. Thank you for contributing your wonderful breasts to this project. I hope you can feel confident about them all the time :)


Hi Folks,

I’m planning a research project to look at changes in vulvar appearance throughout the menstrual cycle. There’s little research that I can find which discusses changes in vulvar appearance, coloration, labial size etc across the cycle.

I’m looking for participants who:

- will commit to photographing their vulva every day throughout their cycle.
- who can provide clear, large, well lit and detailed photos. A good quality camera / phone is necessary.
- will commit to writing a short diary entry every day to describe any changes that they notice in their vulva.
- are NOT taking oral contraceptives.
- are over 18 years of age.

All participants will be 100% anonymous with your privacy guaranteed. I will compile the visual and written results and publish the findings on the Large Labia Project when complete.

If you are interested in participating, or know someone who may be, or would like more information about what’s involved, please write to me at largelabiaproject@gmail.com or send me an message here
